Here is the original, thanks Tony Unplugged http://www.themoralliberal.com/2012/10/03/can-it-all-be-coincidence   by Don Fredrick
Here's a "connect the dots" post from a friend.
There are NO coincidences..... (A serious and enlightening 'read'.)
Any one of these 'coincidences' when taken singularly appear to not mean much, but when taken as a whole, 
a computer would blow a main circuit if you asked it to calculate the odds that they have occurred by chance alone. 
Sit back, get a favorite beverage, and then read and ponder the Obama-related 'coincidences', then superimpose 
the bigger picture of most recent events I.e., Fast and furious, Benghazi , the IRS scandal and the NSA revelations...


*************************** 
Barack Hussein Obama 
just happened to know 60s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father 
just happened to be Thomas Ayers, who
just happened to be a close friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who
just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who
just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama 
just happened to choose as his closest White House adviser, and who
just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which
just happened to manage public housing in Chicago, which 
just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which
just happened not to properly maintain the housing which eventually
just happened to require demolition. *** Not to mention that this is the property that would have been the grounds that hosted the Olympics, had Obama's efforts been successful****


Valerie Jarrett also
just happened to work for the city of Chicago, and
just happened to hire Michelle LaVaughan Robinson (later Mrs. Obama), who
just happened to have worked at the Sidney Austin law firm, where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also just happened to work, and where Barack Obama
just happened 
to get a summer job. 


Bernardine Dohrn
just happened to be married to William Ayers, with whom she
just happened to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco marina, along with Donald Warden, who
just happened to change his name to Khalid al-Mansour, and Warden/al-Mansour who
just happened to be a mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and al-Mansour 
just happened to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince, who
just happened to donate cash to Harvard, for which Obama
just happened to get a critical letter of recommendation from Percy Sutton, who just happened to have been the attorney for Malcolm X, who
just happened to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, who
just happened to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who 
just happened to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya . 


Obama, Sr. 
just happened to have his education at the University of Hawaii paid for by the Laubach Literacy Institute, which
just happened to have been supported by Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who
just happened to be a friend of Malcolm X, who
just happened to have been associated with the Nation of Islam, which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan, who
just happens to live very close to Obamas Chicago mansion, which also
just happens
 to be located very close to the residence of William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who
just happens to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and Natasha Obama, whose parents
just happened to have no concern exposing their daughters to bomb-making communists. 


After attending Occidental College and Columbia University, where he 
just happened to have foreign Muslim roommates, Obama moved to Chicago to work for the Industrial Areas Foundation, an organization that
just happened to have been founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul the Red Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, who
just happened to be the topic of Hillary Rodham Clintons thesis at Wellesley College, and Obamas $25,000 salary at IAF
just happened to be funded by a grant from the Woods Fund, which was founded by the Woods family, whose Sahara Coal company
just happened to provide coal to Commonwealth Edison, whose CEO just happened to be Thomas Ayers, whose son William Ayers 
just happened to serve on the board of the Woods Fund, along with Obama. 


Obama also worked on voter registration drives in Chicago in the 1980s and 
just happened to work with leftist political groups like the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and Socialist International (SI), through which Obama met Carl Davidson, who
just happened to travel to Cuba during the Vietnam War to sabotage the U.S. war effort, and who 
just happened to be a former member of the SDS and a member of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, which
just happened to sponsor a 2002 anti-war rally at which Obama spoke, and which
just happened to have been organized by Marilyn Katz, a former SDS activist and later public relations consultant who
just happened to be a long-time friend of Obamas political hatchet man, David Axelrod. 


Obama joined Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC), whose pastor was Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a fiery orator who
just happened to preach Marxism and Black Liberation Theology and who delivered anti-white, anti-Jew, and anti-American sermons, which Obama 
just happened never to hear because he 
just happened to miss church only on the days when Wright was at his most enthusiastic, and Obama
just happened never to notice that Oprah Winfrey left the church because it was too radical, and
just happened never to notice that the church gave the vile anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award. 


Although no one had ever heard of him at the time, Obama 
just happened to receive an impossible-to-believe $125,000 advance to write a book about race relations, which he
just happened to fail to write while using the cash to vacation in Bali with his wife Michelle, and despite his record of non-writing he just happened to receive a second advance, for $40,000, from another publisher, and he eventually completed a manuscript called Dreams From My Father, which
just happened to strongly reflect the writing style of William Ayers, who 
just happened to trample on an American flag for the cover photograph of the popular Chicago magazine, which Obama
just happened never to see even though it appeared on newsstands throughout the city. 


Obama was hired by the law firm Miner, Banhill and Galland, which
just happened to specialize in negotiating state government contracts to develop low-income housing, and which
just happened to deal with now-imprisoned Tony Rezko and his firm Rezar, and with slumlord Valerie Jarrett, and the law firms Judson Miner
just happened to have been a classmate of Bernardine Dohrn, wife of William Ayers.

In 1994 Obama represented ACORN and another plaintiff in a lawsuit against Citibank for denying mortgages to blacks (Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Federal Savings Bank), and the lawsuit
just happened to result in banks being blackmailed into approving sub-prime loans for poor credit risks, a trend which 
just happened to spread nationwide, and which
just happened to lead to the collapse of the housing bubble, which
just happened to help Obama defeat John McCain in the 2008 presidential election. 


In 1996 Obama ran for the Illinois State Senate and joined the New Party, which 
just happened to promote Marxism, and Obama was supported by Dr. Quentin Yong, a socialist who 
just happened to support a government takeover of the health care system. 


In late 1999, Obama purportedly engaged in homosexual activities and cocaine-snorting in the back of a limousine with a man named Larry Sinclair, who claims he was contacted in late 2007 by Donald Young, who 
just happened to be the gay choir director of Obamas Chicago church and who shared information with Sinclair about Obama, and Young
just happened to be murdered on December 23, 2007, just weeks after Larry Bland, another gay member of the church
just happened to be murdered, and both murders 
just happened to have never been solved. In 2008 Sinclair held a press conference to discuss his claims, and
just happened to be arrested immediately after the event, based on a warrant issued by Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who
just happens to be the son of Joe Biden. 


In 2003 Obama and his wife attended a dinner in honor of Rashid Khalidi, who
just happened to be a former PLO operative, harsh critic of Israel , and advocate of Palestinian rights, and who Obama claims he does not know, even though the Obamas
just happened to have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona, and 
just happened to have used them as occasional baby-sitters. Obama reportedly praised Khalidi at the decidedly anti-Semitic event, which William Ayers
just happened to also attend, and the event Obama pretends he never attended was sponsored by the Arab American Action Network, to which Obama 
just happened to have funneled cash while serving on the board of the Woods Fund with William Ayers, and one speaker at the dinner remarked that if Palestinians cannot secure a return of their land, Israel will never see a day of peace, and entertainment at the dinner included a Muslim children’s dance whose performances
just happened to include simulated be-headings with fake swords, and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags, and Obama allegedly told the audience that Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine and there has been genocide against the Palestinian people by (the) Israelis, and the Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the event but
just happens to refuse to make it public. 


In the 2004 Illinois Democrat primary race for the U.S. Senate, front-runner Blair Hull 
just happened to be forced out of the race after David Axelrod just happened to manage to get Hulls sealed divorce records unsealed, which just happened to enable Obama to win the primary, so he could face popular Republican Jack Ryan, whose sealed child custody records from his divorce
just happened to become unsealed, forcing Ryan to withdraw from the race, which
just happened to enable the unqualified Obama to waltz into the U.S. Senate, where, after a mere 143 days of work, he 
just happened to decide he was qualified to run for President of the United States. 






The Winner in the Democratic/Republican Debates/Primaries: American Democracy!
The World is Watching our Tedious Voting Process.
By now, we must all be fagged out by the tedious process of debates, ads, and Tweets compelling us to decide on which candidate we might want to vote for in the 2016 presidential primaries. I am certainly surfeit with TV commercial espousing the merits of a new drugs inevitably accompanied by a sonorous litany of side effects.
In a more lucid moment, afar from the boob tube, I realize that somehow this incredible satiation of our senses; with the mounting verbiage of the different assortment of presidential candidates; has garnered a certain value, if not wholesome benefit. After asking myself the inane question as to why I watched so many candidates espousing their self-aggrandizing hosannas repeatedly, I realized that there might be an underlying rationalization to which I had not been aware. 
I thought of the simple fact that the constant spotlight on our presidential elections are far more important for the world to watch than it might appear on the surface to us, Americans, who must vote, one way or another. Imagine, young dissidents in China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, who are trying to emulate our collective American sense of dissatisfaction of our political elite through civil disobedience. These youths watch our elections to see how each of our candidates can jockey in speech and action without inciting a blowback of peremptory force or whimsical termination from our own big brother.
Folks, think of the Arab Spring in Cairo five years ago, when so many of that country’s youths were willing to defy the corruption of President Mubarak’s tenure in order to install a ‘democratic regime’. They succeeded in electing a member of the Islamic Brotherhood who was eventually deposed by an Egyptian military coup, assisted by outside ‘interventionists’[ I wonder whom? ]. The point is that Egypt had attained, for a brief few moments, a glimpse of what protests in concert with the ballot box can create without ensuing major bloodshed or civil war. As transient as democracy may arise, it is still the youths’ Elan Vital for the Middle East, be they Shi’ite, Sunni, or Alawite. 
Therefore, on this weekend before the Iowa caucus/NH primary, I wish all the candidates, “God Speed”. I also want to remind them that as tedious and debilitating as this voting process is for the respective candidates, they are now serving a greater cause then just our Republic’s common good.
Our ambitious candidates are our surrogate “Ambassadors of Good Will”; reminding those who aspire to “Freedom” that the road to free choice is littered with many unforeseen obstacles, none of which are insurmountable. I have learned one very important lesson in the past forty years of service to our USG… Democracy is CONTAGIOUS!! 
There is an old German proverb about rulers:
“He/She who would rule must hear and be deaf; see and be blind.”

American Water: The Foundations for Environmental Racism [Michigan] and Class Warfare [Florida]!
I recently attended a local town meeting on the disproportionate power of public companies like Plum Creek [from Washington State]  and  other mega-corporations usurping the power and privileges of local county governments. I have never been involved in local politics; nor have I ever witnessed the relentless insurgencies of paid operatives who work on behalf of multi-billion dollar public companies like Plum Creek. Basically, this company is a real estate investment trust which buys up cheap lands and rezones them so that they can be ‘flipped’ to another buyer at a higher price.

In principle, ‘flipping’ is not illegal. However, when a public company like Plum Creek asserts that it will “create a new town over millions of acres” ---the  connotation is quite clear. Their past history in Montana and other parts of the country have demonstrated that Plum Creek, a combination of Weyerhaeuser and Georgia Pacific, have had very little to do with any form of business enhancement in the promised areas of acquisition; and instead have pilfered the local land and water rights as a way of enticing future builders to buy their “rezoned lands”. 

What a company like Plum Creek really does on the local level is to create class warfare; wherein the middle class ends up fighting with a disenfranchised minority class to prevent the mega-corporation from usurping the wetlands and unimproved lands from being used as a “pawn” for the rezoning of millions of acres that were never going to be developed in the first place.  In the lingo of the intelligence world, Plum Creek, and other companies like it, use “Agitation Propaganda” [Agit Prop.] to stir up a frightening division between people in a local community who should be working with each other rather than fighting each other.
In neo-Marxist terms, this is called, “class warfare” in the guise of crony-capitalism where the use of public funds from the IPO are transformed into a powerful political weapon brandished against any and all caring opposition; be it a concerned citizen or a dutiful commissioner. 
Similarly, Michigan has evidenced another form of environmental usurpation which has been accurately entitled “environmental racism”. The recent failures and incompetent management by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder over the disastrous water pollution problem in Flint, Michigan evidences a clear pattern of discrimination against the African-American community whose water was highly contaminated with lead and other corrosive foul metals. Snyder was and still is unwilling to assume responsibility for his inept performance as a Chief-Manager of Michigan. Instead, like Governor Rick Scott of Florida, he is willing to spend whatever funds are necessary to hire a private consulting firm to manage “his optics”[translated CYA].

I have not turned into a commie sympathizer. Yet, I have warned all you good people for over twenty five years when I first wrote State of Emergency that our federal, state and local officials will inevitably enter into a conflict regarding our most precious limited resource in the world: WATER!  At the time I wrote the novel, I was derided for attempting to portray an episode between federal and state officials in the southwest that would eventually lead to a Second Civil War.

https://stevepieczenik.com/stateofemergency

Now let me state categorically that if the governors and officials of every state of the union do not heed the wishes of their citizenry and instead bow to the imperatives of mega-corporations; then conflict will arise, once the tainted rational processes abate.
I hope that my prediction is wrong!
I am leery of “crony capitalism” which is neither capitalism nor invested with the desire to impart fairness into any arena of their endeavor. Be it “environmental  racism”or “class warfare”, I warn my fellow citizens to become active in their respective communities and stop the destruction of our land/water resources by the rapacious greed of those companies and individuals whom we have funded with our public acquiescence [an IPO or election].
American land and water belongs to no one person or company. It is an asset which belongs in principle and deed to those who nurture and care for its future. A public company like Plum Creek can be easily dissolved by a stockholder lawsuit; SEC investigations for illicit bribes and intimidation; or even a hostile takeover.
However, our waters and wetlands are not impervious to man’s follies. They are the legacy that we give to the future generations.
I will end with a quote from the famous Dean William R. Inge of Cambridge University [UK]:

“It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favor of vegetarianism while the wolf remains of a different opinion.”

Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning: All Violated U.S. National Security Top Secrets and All are in Hiding or Jail!
What about Hillary Clinton? SAP/Top Secret Violations. I vote for Hillary to go to Prison in 2016.
Just when I thought I was done with Hillary and there was absolutely no more for me to say, suddenly, I learned that she received Top Secret plus SAP on her mobile phone.

SAP, for those like me who did not know what that stands for, means Special Access Programs according to the Wikipedia- usually denotes highly sensitive, black-ops project actions with a mandate of nondisclosure. Accordingly, there are three categories of SAPs in the DOD:
Acquisition SAPS[AQ-SAP]; 
Intelligence SAP [IN-SAPS];
Operations and Support SAPS [OS-SAPS].
If you spend some time on Wikipedia, you will understand the major differences among these classifications. Sufficient to say that anyone, including General David Petraeus who had violated TS procedures, was punished with a monetary fine and a possible grade demotion. Assange, Snowden and Manning –all have the distinction of violating U.S. National Security secrets and eventually fled the country to seek some form of relief; or in the case of Manning, he/she went to prison.
Yet, Hillary, as usual, has not been able to admit that whatever she received on her unclassified, commercial, bath-tub constructed server was highly classified. She repeatedly makes mention of the fact that she did not read any or recognize any classification whatsoever on her open source mobile phone. Of course, she is lying. In fact, her crime is so perfidious that it is costing us, taxpayers, millions of unnecessary dollars for the FBI to allocate approximately100 special agents to sift through her supposedly unclassified emails.
It only gets worse for Hillary.
The longer she waits and refuses to admit her sins; the greater the sins become. It’s one thing to mishandle classified information up to the level of Top Secret [the highest level I had ever wanted]. It is another issue to deny any responsibility for violating SAPS which can compromise the lives and plans of black operations that in reality do not ever exist. To obviate the sanctity of black ops; and, at the same time, to place countless numbers of brave covert operatives’ lives in danger is a major violation of federal law, immoral and its anti-American. It is punishable by imprisonment and loss of one’s regular life while spending time in prison.

Hillary is no exception to that truth! Yet, we should know this by now, this is part of her known history: whitewater, fake commodity profits, white house scandals, 9/11, what else do we need as evidence that this family is trash and needs to be thrown out?
The longer she lies, the worse her sentence should become, compounding her time away by years if not decades. She may think that she cannot and will not be held to the moral standards to which, we all, in the intelligence/State Dept. service had to swear by and even sign special papers recognizing our culpability if we in fact violated that trust. Hillary will soon discover, like the rest of us, that this type of blatant crime will not pay.  
How do I know?
I have no special knowledge; other than the faith I have entrusted into a group of professionals in the FBI and Justice Department whom I believe, against all hope, will act accordingly. Do I think that Obama will interfere with the final investigation that I am certain will find Hillary guilty of crimes against the state?
No!
Yet, I believe that Obama has decided that his political ascendancy, as well as, his eight year tenure as POTUS, has had their fill of the Bill and Hillary Clinton Chicaneries. Obama wants to leave a legacy of domestic and foreign policy achievements that will supersede any mention of the Clintons—good or bad.
Obama will have to determine whether General Petraeus should be demoted for personal infractions against national security. I believe that Petraeus may have been guilty of confusing which “gun” he was supposed to be shooting in the presence of his biographer. That does not take away from whatever achievements he may have accomplished in order to warrant a four star promotion. One is based on warrior abilities. The other has to do with personal fallibilities. The two should not be confused when allocating a potential punishment. Nor should punishment be retroactive; otherwise, our history and personnel will be held accountable to the slightest whims.
Hillary has reached the apex of her career, she is post-peak. She has accomplished what no other Sec State has ever done—purposefully violated national security; as well as,  compromised covert operatives; risking their lives around the world for black ops programs that never existed in the first place; in order, to protect our country in the second place. I have never witnessed such infantile selfishness and self-delusion as Hillary has evidenced time and time again.
I suggest to the American Psychiatric Association [APA—to which I do not belong] that they create a completely separate category of sociopathy called “CLINTONISM”—where one considers oneself completely unbound by the rules of society; and by doing so becomes the model of faux future behavior. BTW, this disease may be contagious. It is known to occur in family clusters over several generations both in boys and girls. We might enter this new disease in the DSM of politicians or sociopathus extraordinaris.

I am resolved to vote for Hillary Clinton to go to PRISON in 2016!!!!
Please vote with me and your fellow Americans to send her away for good!!!













As Our Novitiates of War Scream for Retaliation Against ISIS, Turkey is Ready to Invade Syria!
Sometimes multilateral diplomacy, in concert with military force structure, does work. Irrespective of the shrill cries that “our brave sailors were captured and humiliated by Iran”, a far more important narrative is evolving in the Middle East. BTW, Iran did not “capture” nor “humiliate” our sailors. They actually helped our young men to retrace their navigational mistake and place them out of Harm’s Way.

In the meantime, according to reliable intelligence [Stratfor; January 19, 2016] Turkey is in the process of preparing a major land invasion into Syria to finally clear the land that ISIS occupies along the Syrian-Turkish border. In conjunction with the Russians, Iranians and the US military forces, Turkey has sought permission to clear the minefields planted along the border of the ISIS-controlled Syrian town of Jarabulus in preparation for a land invasion of Syria. Concurrently, Russia has tempered its anger over the aberrant Sukhoi Su-24  which was shut down by Turkey some time ago. In return, Turkey has promised that it will not march toward the buffer zones of the Mediterranean Sea which are controlled by Bashar Assad and his Syrian Government forces; as well as Russian troops.

What is about to happen, in my humble opinion, is a massive Pinzer-like squeeze of the Saudi-sponsored ISIS via a northern attack by Turkish troops to clear ISIS from Aleppo [a once beautiful city where Agatha Christie wrote her mystery stories]; while the Kurdish People’s Protection Units[YPG] expand their successful assaults from the eastern part of Syria toward the west [Euphrates River]. From the south, Syrian Government forces, backed by Russian air/land firepower, are advancing north toward the city of al-Bab. From the west, rebel forces backed by Turkish military forces [Mare Operations Room] are moving eastward.
In effect, we should be witnessing the beginning of the end of ISIS control over Syria; and possibly even Iraq. Both VP Joe Biden and U.S. Assistant Secretary of Europe Victoria Nuland [our favorite profanity-shouting neo-con] will go to Istanbul to coordinate Turkish military advances with Iran, Russia, Hezbollah, and other parties in the conflict. For those of you who worry about the Holy Land, Israel, they have been guaranteed by the USG and Russia that no missiles or guerrilla warfare will encroach on any of their supposed territories.
This major Turkish land invasion into Syria, may be just the right catalyst that will justify Obama’s long-held wishes not to send American troops into Syria. We have American boots in the ground. Yet, like most shell-games of the different Presidents, these “American boots” are confined to such well-defined nomenclatures as mercenaries, Special Forces, and proxies. Not real, ordinary American foot-soldiers!

The new Drone Warfare has placed a premium on reversing our strategic military outcomes. Instead of measuring outcomes by body-counts; which we foolishly implemented during the Vietnam War [unfortunately contrived by MIT Political Science Department]; we are, now, ordering our officers to minimize battlefield casualties. Therefore a US military Captain or Major has to make certain that he does not win a conflict; but, instead he/she has to avoid an unnecessary engagement in order to maximize the number of men he/she brings back home safely and intact.That it is the new approach to modern-day warfare.
I have written over several years that our best allies in the zone of conflict have been those seemingly “Muslim terrorists” who had devastated our American soldiers during the inane invasion of Iraq. Americans are now depending primarily on the brave, highly combat-experienced Shi’ite soldiers provided by Iran[ IRG] and Hezbollah. So, we, Americans, should take heed of the fact that neither Ayatollah Khomeini nor Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah are insane, anti-American; nor anti-Israel. Any rhetoric to the contrary defeats the delicate coalition built over decades by several US Presidents and the CIA/MI community.
Times have changed. What were once were our enemies; have now become our allies. And, our erstwhile allies, the Saudis,  have become our potential enemies.That is the nature of Realpolitik.

Remember: Americans really have no friends only national interests; and, we build alliances accordingly. For the moment, let’s give POTUS and our military/intelligence community some breathing room so that they can do what they have done best—keep our women/men out of Harm’s Way with a minimal body count!!
Once again, Erdogan, welcome to Syria! Please don’t take too long to wipe out ISIS… Also, please, try to stop your infighting with the Kurds.
As the 2000 Year old man, Mel Brooks, once said—“Good luck”!

Anthony Weiner Scandal Marks the Death Knell for the Hillary/Bill Clinton Clan
Insidious Sexual Pathology Resurrects the Underlying Self-destructive Nature of Hillary/Bill Clinton!
Just as famous musicians like Glenn Frey and David Bowie pass away into an ethos of fond memories, the stories of lascivious sexual pathology once again arise like a phoenix to alert America that the Clinton Family and their entourage are one sick clan. A recent article in the NY Times, January 19, 2016  entitled “Film Shows Clinton Aide’s Own Struggle With Anthony Weiner Scandal”, written by Amy Chozick and Brooks Barnes, highlights the major characteristics of the Clinton family and their entourage: Self Destructive Personal/Group Pathologies, that seem to never go away. Never in my professional life have I ever witnessed such self-destructive political actions as evidenced by Hillary, Bill Clinton and Huma Abedin and her pathetic husband, Anthony Weiner [of selfie-dick fame].

Without belaboring the egregiously sick nature of both Bill and Anthony’s sexual inadequacies, the story points out a far more revealing factor that has always fascinated me: the considerable ineptitude of Huma Abedin and the coterie of Clinton advisors. Who in their right mind would even consider a documentary that relives the shameful nature of both husband and wife in the Anthony Weiner affair? Certainly not a normal, intelligent individual.
However, when one is discussing the Clintons or their sycophant entourage, one has to take stock in the fact that someone like Huma Abedin, who is supposedly the person closest to a presidential contender, Hillary, might have more intelligence and composure than her emotionally twisted boss.
Wrong!
Without belaboring the point, I found that Huma Abedin’s past behavior for having received outside payments while working at the State Department was completely illegal/immoral; and, placed into question the competency/ethics of Under Secretary for Management, Pat Kennedy of Benghazi ill-repute. The entire Clinton entourage is one that appears to be bereft of common sense and intellectual gravitas. I knew many of those people involved in both policy and administration and found them quite wanting in intellect and sagacity. Not a very impressive assessment of a political dynasty that wanted to remain relevant for some time.
The present election with the presence of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump will eventually eradicate the shame and stigma that the Clintons have brought upon an American legacy. If I were as talented as the American writer, Theodore Dreiser, I would have reclaimed the title of his best-selling novel, “An American Tragedy”, as the keystone description of the Clintons. It’s time for Hillary to bow out or… hopefully go to jail.

Are you listening, Director of the FBI--- James Comey?
Whatever the outcome, we, Americans, can be sure that the final curtain has not been drawn on those perfidious politicians in and about the Clintons. Whatever else may arise, I can assure, you good readers, that the Clinton’s will continue on their inevitable road of self-destruction.
Hubris Ate Nemesis!
Pride is its own downfall.

one of my fav bands, the Eagles. Glen Frey RIP. http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/18/entertainment/glenn-frey-obit-feat/
Jerry Falwell Jr on Trump http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/donald-trump-jerry-falwell-jr-liberty-university-speech/2016/01/18/id/709880/?ns_mail_uid=95421024&ns_mail_job=1650946_01182016&s=al&dkt_nbr=9rgctvyt




Ted Cruz: Tartuffe-- The Modern Day Religious Hypocrite!
with the Full Support of his Goldman Sachs/ Council on Foreign Relations Wife, Heidi. They Both try to Make Fools of Evangelical Christians and Us, Americans!
Hypocrisy and lying are two essential components of creating a convincing narrative as a candidate for POTUS. The issue is always to what degree does the narrative reflect reality; or, is it simply a vehicle of propaganda, intended to denigrate the intended audience with Goebbels-like lies, repeated incessantly?

Such a character is Ted Cruz whom the brilliant French playwright, Moliere described in detail as “Tartuffe,” as far back as the 1600s. No candidate in the 2016 Presidential race has relied on the Evangelical Christians of Iowa; as well as, the southern tier of the American states, as today’s Tartuffe, Ted Cruz. He has organized his personal narrative around a fictitious portrait of himself as the ‘Humble Servant of Christ’ and the “grateful son” [read draft-dodger] of “America”.
Nothing in his life denotes an iota of Christian sanctity; least of all his own arrogant, obnoxious behavior, bereft of compassion, or any form of empathy. As if that were not bad enough and even insulting to us, Americans, Tartuffe [Cruz] has been ENABLED by Heidi, his ‘devoted house frau’. Nothing exposes the hypocrisy of Ted as much as the background of his politically ambitious, financially rapacious Heidi who probably should have run for POTUS based on her own political ambitions.

Please indulge me for a few descriptive riffs here. Her CFR file, which was quickly removed from my perusal, reveals some very interesting evidence denoting a potential personae akin to our beloved sociopath,  Hillary Clinton.
Heidi is a member of the globalists, CFR; where her research recommends that Mexico and Canada [Cruz’s birthplace/citizenry] should be amalgamated into one North American entity. She is a true Globalist, denying American Exceptionalism!
Heidi served loyally to one of the most corrupt, inept Sec States, Condoleeza Rice; whom I could barely consider either intelligent or truthful. Condi was one of those “affirmative action candidates”, like Obama; who ascended up the “greasy pole” of Republicanism through her minority status at the expense of dismissing other more qualified candidates, who could have prevented 9/11.
Heidi was a special assistant to Robert Zoelleck whom I knew quite well. He was/is a Bush Family loyalist whose performance both in the FANNIE MAE and housing crisis leaves his tenure open to questions of financial irregularities.
Heidi is a Managing Director of Goldman Sachs. Nothing bespeaks a greater hypocrisy concerning the Cruzs’ “Christian Values” then that “esteemed” title which represents the worst type of avarice and political cronyism required to ascend the troughs of that corrupt NYC bank.

Interestingly enough our Tartuffe stupidly attacked ‘NY Values’; when in fact, he and his wife were buried up to their chins in the manure represented by the dregs of two miscreant banks. Ted and Heidi owe Goldman, a mere $1M at the same time, they owe Citibank, another $500K. What more could be said about this modern-day Tartuffe husband/wife team—brilliantly described some five hundred years ago? Let us not forget that he is not a natural born citizen of America; despite the fact that his mentor Lawyer Alan Dershowitz, a NYC blowhard defends him ad infinitum while Alan is being indicted for sexual deviant behavior.

We must and can produce far more convincing, compelling characters than this Canadian reject. Yet, what would I and other bloggers do without a buffoon like Ted Cruz-- to whom I donated some moneys in order to observe what this Cuban/Canadian version of Tartuffe would say and do under the onslaught of reality?
As a writer,  I am thankful that we will always have a plenary of Tartuffes, just in different shapes and forms always willing to play the hypocrite at will…..
There is always Rubio, Christie, Jeb, Fiorina…..and of course, Hillary!
Thank you Jesus!!

Thanks to MIT/CIA, forgot to mention this gem in my "roundup" http://pieczenik.blogspot.com/2015/11/sicario-gem-of-film-tight-action.html

2015 Academy Award Nominees is a Complete Joke for the So-Called “Best Films”
Something Is Rotten In Hollywood!
I just finished watching most of the films that were sent to me by the Academy. I was extremely impressed by a few of the smaller films about which I had previously blogged. They include the exceedingly brilliant, “The Danish 
Girl”

Amazing writing, photography, acting, directing and producing. A fifteen year development jewel. Next, I lauded several highly dramatic, well-produced films:
“The Big Short”
“Spotlight”
“Legend” 
“Concussion”

A special blog was posted about that incredibly daring, self-critical script/movie—“Trumbo”—a must see for all Americans---starring two outstanding stars: Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren. This movie was both enlightening and extremely entertaining with outstanding performances across the board. Unfortunately, Hollywood is trying to hide its past; or, something else is going on—no mention whatsoever of this great film.

Another film that I thought was worthy of mention but I did not have the time to write about was “Creed”-starring Michael B. Jordan, an extremely talented young actor; as well as, the all-time favorite, Sylvester Stallone. Special mention has to go to Ryan Coogler, the young director/writer who did an outstanding job of creating some very exciting scenes. This film brings back both the pathos and vitality of the original “Rocky” franchise, first created some 40 years ago.
I did not write about the films that I thought should never be considered for an academy award; let alone a film that should have never been made in the first place [real chutzpah on my part!].  I held back from writing my list of “stinkers” until I saw the chaotic Golden Globes Awards which was often an unfortunate presage of the flops that would be considered as best films for 2015. Here is my list of bad movies that somehow won Globes. Avoid paying to watch the following movies, save them for a real off night if nothing else is available:
“The Revenant”—the fact that the title was so esoteric gave me a hint that at best, this film by the non-talented Alejandro G Inarritu; whose former film, “Birdman,” spoke volumes about inanity in films that lack drama, cohesion or raison d’etre. This time around Alejandro was true to his genetic coding for pretentious social messages which should be relegated to half-hour documentaries. This time around, the Mexican director engaged the talents of one very talented producer, Arnon Milchan [an Israeli gunrunner with 130 films credited to his name]. At the same time, two of the most talented actors, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy [“Legend”]  were the leading stars in this ersatz National Geographic film of a bear tearing a man apart. Other than a very long boring chase scene through the woods, nothing compels this film to be anything other than mediocre—at best.
“Carol”—a tepid, boring movie about a 1950’s Lesbian love affair. An outdated film that spends most of its time on the road going from one run-down motel to another one. Harvey Weinstein could and should do a lot better.  
“The Martian” starring the very talented Matt Damon and directed/ produced by the formidable Ridley Scott is a dud! This film was not even worthy of being made. It’s basically a monologue interspersed with some unimpressive scenes of a planet. The film is bereft of drama, action, tension. So if you want to see Damon talking to himself for an hour or more; and you have nothing better to do than watch this film and go to sleep five minutes after it starts.

“Joy” another paean to the blessed unholy relationship among the neurotic writer/director David O. Russell and the two talented actors, the underpaid Jennifer Lawrence [ a mere $53 million] and Bradley Cooper. If anyone wants to learn how to sell a mop on the Home Shopping Network [HSN], please see this discombobulated film which should never have been made.
“Bridge Of Spies”—A 1950 spy film produced/directed by Steven Spielberg and written by the two moribund, overrated clones—Ethan Coen and Joel Coen made a fictional account of a one of the most boring episodes in the history of spydom –the Russian’s destruction of the U2 spy plane. This movie sounds highly contrived and has the deadly beats of dialogue that only two brothers completely bereft of any skills; other than to write about their boring solipsistic world.
“Room”—despite solid performances from Brie Larson and child actor Jacob Tremblay, the film lacks drama, touted for reasons beyond my limited comprehension. It’s as bad as it is claustrophobic.
“Brooklyn”—cute, non-eventful film about an era in Ireland that was long forgotten because it was and is not very important. 
“Steve Jobs” –written by Aaron Sporkin, the talented play wright who should have remained writing long, tedious dialogues that belong in an Off-Broadway play. This is boring film that explores nothing more than the constant harangues of the talented actor, Michael Fassbender shouting to the equally gifted actress, Kate Winslet. As for the British director, Danny Boyle, he has a clear inability to dramatize the life of a real SOB as he goes from one Silicon Valley company to another one.
That’s my round up of the films that I suggest that you watch on your DVD or NETFLIX and the ones to save until you are desperate. It will be interesting to see how far afield I am from my colleagues in the film industry, who presumably should know better than I.  Academy Awards Ceremony is on February 28.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/ted-cruz-is-not-eligible-to-be-president/2016/01/12/1484a7d0-b7af-11e5-99f3-184bc379b12d_story.html




Senator Ted Cruz, a Vanishing Candidate!
For some time now, I have been watching the ascendancy of Ted Cruz, a once promising Presidential Candidate. Yet, several recent intervening variables have created some concerns about his legitimacy as a viable candidate.
The first issue relates to the well-known fact that he was born in Calgary, Canada. Clearly the issue of a Canadian-born candidate raises the appropriate question as to what constitutes a ‘natural born citizen’? The fact that we know nothing about his mother, other than the fact that ‘she and her husband [ now an Evangelical Minister] were both alcoholics’, does not lend very much credence to the serious issue –why should we vote for a Canadian-born citizen?
Next, Cruz has made quite an issue of the fact that he and his loving wife, Heidi, have ‘self-funded’ his respective campaigns as Texas Senator and Presidential nominee with their “own hard-earned monies”. He and Heidi forgot to write on their application for federal finances that Ted received one million dollars for margin calls from Goldman Sachs; as well as, another $500,000 from the equally corrupt, Citibank.

Now, we find out that Heidi, a Christian-loving, family-dedicated-mom, is a managing director of Goldman Sachs Banking–a ruthless, corrupt financial institution that was a principle contributor the 2008 US financial crisis.  Ironically, Goldman Sachs also hedges its political bets by heavily supporting Hillary Clinton directly; as well as, making major yearly donations to Bill Clinton through the Clinton non-profit foundation. No mention of these financial discrepancies from our sanctimonious so-called “conservative, born-again God-fearing Christian, Ted Cruz.” 
Are we supposed to believe that Heidi received a highly coveted job at Goldman based on her looks and dedication to Christ? Most probably, she must quite ruthless, if not more so than her husband; otherwise, she would not have received that heavily coveted position in a primarily Jewish banking firm. 
It is clear to me and others that someone will undoubtedly file a law suit in Supreme Court contesting Cruz’s viability as a presidential candidate who was not born in America. 

As if Ted does not have enough self-imposed problems, he has solicited the help of his once alcoholic, wanderlust of a Cuban father. Apparently, Dad Cruz fought with Fidel Castro and the other misbegotten Communists in Cuba. Now, Rafael Cruz has become the enthusiastic spokesman for Jesus and our American Founding Fathers. He, of course, forgot to mention that he was a considered a ‘snitch’ by both the Cuban communists and Batista’s operatives. Neither side trusted him. Both sides correctly claimed that the father, like the son, had never seen combat or even fought for his supposed Marxist ideals.
What we now see, in both father and son, is an ability to distort history and sound extremely bellicose and self-righteous, encouraging others to initiate wars that both men were afraid to fight. We see that the father and son are two cowards who are more than eager to create wars that they will never have to fight; nor will their kids.  
Cruz is in trouble! His stories become conflated with bellicose statements that belie his own loyalty to America and his willingness to die for our country. Ted Cruz reminds me of the most egregious panderer for money [like Jeb, Rubio, Fiorina, Carson] whose only merit is his talent to augment his self-aggrandizements to the highest levels of incredulity. He casts himself as the savior of a country who afforded him the best Ivy League educations available without having to stub his tiny toes in Harm’s Way.
As a natural born Cuban, I served my adopted America on countless number of occasions. This makes me find Ted Cruz [as well as Marc Rubio’s] and his Cuban-American- inspired narrative quite repulsive. Distortions and omissions conflate into one screaming Ben Carson-type sociopathic lie! Haven’t we had enough of fakers who pretend to be American?

Let’s go back to the major candidates whom I think deserve to be considered seriously.  
On the Democratic side—American-born; NYC bred, Bernie Sanders.
On The Republican side—American-born; NYC bred, Donald Trump.
The true Americans in this race come from the city in which I grew up after leaving Cuba—NUEVA YORK!!!!!
This time around NYC will determine the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. 
Welcome to America!!!
