Hilary Caught Out In Lies – Again.

Posted in America, Britain, British Humour, Canada, Elections, England, News, Obama, Politics, USA with tags , , , , on 30/09/2016 by floroy1942

A friend sent me this and it set me to wondering what the American people would think of it. Read this and see what you think:

Moderator: Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Let’s start the first questions with you Mrs. Clinton.

When you were Secretary of State why did you let a Russian company purchase 1/2 of the United States Uranium reserves?
How much money was donated by Russian companies to your Foundation?
When you worked for the State Department how did you conduct Secret Classified business without using a secure email server?
What kind of assault weapons were you funneling through Benghazi to ISIS in Syria before Ambassador Stevens was murdered?
Why were you interested in the over-throw of Assad in Syria?

When you left the White House after your husband’s last term as president, why did you steal $200,000.00 worth of furniture, China, and artwork that you were forced to return?

Mrs. Clinton, when you were Secretary of State, why did you solicit contributions from foreign governments for the Clinton foundation after you promised President Obama you would not?
Mrs. Clinton, why do you and your husband claim to contribute millions of dollars to charity for a tax write off when it goes to your family foundation, (slush fund), that gives out less than 5% of the funds
You collect and you use the balance to support yourself tax free?

Mrs. Clinton, why are you unable to account for 6 billion dollars of State department funds that seem to have disappeared while you were Secretary of State?
Mrs. Clinton, why did you say you were broke when you left the White House, but you purchased a $2 million home, built an addition for the secret service, and charged the tax payers of the United States rent in an amount equal to the entire mortgage?
And Mrs. Clinton, how is it that your daughter, Chelsea, can afford to buy a $10.5 million apartment in New York City shortly after you left the White House?

And speaking of Chelsea, how is it that her first paying job, in her late 20’s, was for more than the salary of the President of the United States? Was there a quid pro quo of any sort involved??

Mrs. Clinton why did you lie to the American people about the terrorist attack in Benghazi but managed to tell the truth to your daughter the same night it happened?

Mrs. Clinton why did you lose your law license? Why did your husband lose his?
Mrs. Clinton, what really happened to Ron Brown when he was about to testify against you and your husband?

Why did you lie to the public for over a year that you never sent classified information from your private illegal server? Why did you delete over 33.000 e-mails and then bleach your computer hard drive from that same server?

Why did you lie about being in danger and taking fire when you landed in Bosnia? 

Take your time to respond Mrs. Clinton…….

 

Ps. There are hundreds of other examples of her lies, just not enough time to list them all.

Some people will think I am taking sides in the presidential debate, but I am not. Most politicians get voted in because the public, well some of them, believe the lies they tell. This is just an example of the some of them. There are a lot more, in fact, the list is endless!

Whatever Happened To Honesty And ‘Truth’?

Posted in America, Britain, Children, Christianity, Justice, Parenting, Police, Religion, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 28/07/2013 by floroy1942

Rahoy - WHAT? Spanish Politicians Are Not Corrupt!

Rahoy – WHAT? Spanish Politicians Are Not Corrupt!

Over the past few years there have been various examples of famous people like Strauss-Kahn (who denied prostitution charges and is now charged with pimping), and the current Spanish Prime Minister Rahoy, who denies corruption charges (not proven – yet), who prove beyond doubt that honesty and truth are all but dead.

Finally Caught? Maybe!

Finally Caught? Maybe!

The word ‘truth’ has little meaning today, for everyone from politicians to the man in the street will never own up when they have done something wrong. The two ‘gentlemen’ mentioned are by no means the only public figures to be caught out, there have been many cases in Britain and other countries too, for they all do it. Criminals, and particularly killers, who have been literally caught in the act all plead ‘Not Guilty’ in court.

Do I need To Elaborate?

Do I need To Elaborate?

But it extends much further than that, for governments, and their opposing groups, will all fabricate the number of dead and injured in, e.g. a civil war to suit their purpose. Prime examples are the Syrian government when they tell us the rebels have killed ’80 people and 30 children’ just for the propaganda benefit, or use chemical weapons and say it was the rebels.

Hamas have always grossly exaggerated the number of civilians killed in Israeli attacks purely for propaganda purposes. As you can imagine, the Press play a major roll in this for they too sometimes boost the figures and certainly exaggerate the women and children deaths in such conflicts to increase circulation. Its become a pattern that has spread across the world.

Muslim Brotherhood Violence In Egypt

Muslim Brotherhood Violence In Egypt

The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt are falsifying the number of people supposedly shot by the Army during demonstrations. I can just imagine the conversation: “The government is reporting 6 dead and 14 wounded in our last demonstration”. To which some bright spark will say: “That’s not enough, let’s make it 50 dead and 70 wounded. That sounds much better!”

As another example, there are few nations in the world where elections can be held without accusations of vote-rigging afterwards. In innumerable countries these charges are made by the losers simply because they lost, and in others it is a fact.

Ariel Castro - At Least He Pleaded Guilty

Ariel Castro – At Least He Pleaded Guilty

Ariel Castro, the American kidnapper, rapist and killer has for many years been the only criminal in a court of law to actually plead guilty, and he did it to escape a death sentence. He had an ulterior motive that saved him from an almost certain death sentence if found guilty after a trial, and he presumably thought it better to continue living in prison than to die. But as to the rest, the days of someone caught red-handed pleading guilty to their crime are long gone.

In most homes, our children lie to us on a daily basis these days. “Have you been drinking”? to which the answer is invariably “No Mum!”, or when home late they will say they were with so-and-so when in fact they were with someone they know you do not approve of.

$1.4 Left On A Bench - Would YOU Hand It In?

$1.4 Left On A Bench – Would YOU Hand It In?

If you found a bag full of money or an iPad on, say a park bench that has been left behind by someone, would you turn it into the police? If you saw the person who had left it behind walking away, would you run after them to return it? Most people today would say No! Many people who find a wallet or purse with money in it just take the cash and drop the item in a convenient waste-bin.

I am from a much older generation where we were taught the value of honesty and truthfulness, and I can assure you that I would hand the bag, purse or wallet in to the police, and if I knew who it belonged to I would return it, but these days I am in a distinct minority with the exception of many older folks like me.

Honesty Is Right

Honesty Is Right

When out and about in the summer I usually carry my wallet and phone etc. in a ‘belly bag’. A couple of years ago I was in a bar with my wife, and after going to ‘water the flowers’ I accidentally left it in the toilet. I didn’t realize until about five minutes later, when a waiter came by and asked a group of about six young Englishmen drinking at a nearby table if it belonged to them. Immediately one of them jumped up and said it was his, but for some reason the waiter didn’t believe him, perhaps it was his eagerness I don’t know, but then he approached our table. I told him it was mine, described what was inside and he handed it over. It was a good demonstration of the dishonesty of very many people these days, and the basic honesty of one, that I will not readily forget.

As a child it was instilled in me that I should always tell the truth, I should not steal, and I should always turn in lost property to the police. Sadly, parents do not seem to take the trouble to teach their children basic honesty these days, and for that matter neither do the schools. In most cases this is because the parents themselves have either not been taught honesty, or have conveniently forgotten it.

Sunday School For Kids

Sunday School For Kids

Part of the reason could be that my generation were brought up in a more Christian atmosphere where practically everybody went to church at some time or other, and we even had religious education in schools. Now-a-days of course many people are atheists, and even those who are not only go to church one time to be married and never darken the churches door again until they die.

Many people today have a strong dislike or an utter disdain for religion and most of the time cannot be bothered to even think about it. We are even afraid to wear a religious symbol for fear of upsetting the Muslims. Say what you like about the old believe in Christianity, but the one thing it taught everyone was a profound respect for each other, the law, and honesty. I am not saying that everyone should start going to church again, but it would be nice if the old values of respect, truth and honesty were to return, but I doubt they ever will.

2011 – A Good Year?

Posted in Britain, Environment, Spain, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , , on 23/12/2011 by floroy1942

It’s Christmas again and you have to wonder where the year went. For many of us this last 12 months has been somewhat of a trial, what with the economic crisis in Europe and the introduction of austerity measures, the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ that has brought death and destruction to many families in many countries, and not forgetting the various disasters worldwide.  Soon another year will be starting and we can only hope it will  be better than 2011.

February 24 2011 - New Zealand

Everyone lives in hope that things will improve, and the world can settle down once more to a period of comparative peace. The last year has seen more than its share of death and heartache, but when all is said and done, we do this to ourselves. Without dictators there would be no need for  an ‘Arab Spring’, and without greedy bankers and corrupt politicians there would be no need for austerity measures, but we are after all human and no-one is perfect.

February 26 2011 - Libya

As we see in countries like Egypt, there is no point in overturning a dictator if he is to be replaced by a military that will not bow to the will of the people. It is after all, the people that make a country, not governments or its landscape. In other arab countries there has been continued unrest because the will of the people has not been heard. Libya is still engaged in sporadic fighting since the fall of Gaddafi, and of course in Syria the story is far from over. If you wish to count all the countries that are embroiled in unrest you would run out of fingers and toes. In Iraq, now the last troops have taken their leave, we have secular fighting that looks set to continue for a long time, until one or other comes out on top, but as usual its the common people who suffer.

If you look to countries that are not actually fighting among themselves, you will find a long list that has suffered riots and/or major demonstrations over the past year. Chief among them Greece, Italy, Spain, America and even Russia. Most of these events are due to people protesting about the austerity measures put in place by their governments in an effort to try and balance the books. That they should need to do this is only due to their incompetence over the last five years, for they failed to live up to the golden rule; i.e. “Never spend what you don’t have”!

October 19 2011 - Greece

All today’s monetary problems stem from the fact that once political parties get in power they want to stay there, and will promise anything to achieve that. They say “Power Corrupts” and that is never more true than today. The governments of countries like Greece and Italy have raised salaries and encouraged massive tax fraud etc. just to keep the populace happy and themselves in  power. As most European countries are now finding out, eventually you have to pay the piper! I was going to include Spain in that category, but in truth, here the problem is massive inefficiency everywhere, from government down to the local shop. How these people ever had the audacity to think they could invade England in 1588 defies logic! Better they had stayed in South America where they only had to fight the local indian tribes!

Friday March 11 2011 - Fukushima

This last year has also seen its share of natural disasters in the shape of earthquakes, tsunami’s, drought and major flooding. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their lives in these catastrophes, and in truth we have no-one to blame but ourselves. For as long as we continue to destroy our world piecemeal it will only get worse. As I have often said in the past, we are entering a new phase of mankind, and in the words of the ‘Bard’: “We ain’t seen nothing yet!”

Indonesia - Rain Forest Destruction 2011

However, the optimists among us will still hope that the next year in man’s evolution will see an improvement over the current troubles that beset our world. It can happen, if only people would think a little less of themselves and a little more of others. It is time to put away self! With more cooperation and an end to the constant power struggle that afflicts our leaders, the world could once again become a peaceful place where everyone can benefit. If we ourselves stop judging everything by ‘what is best for us’ we can go a long way to solving the major problems that beset society in most countries of the world. If nations like Brazil, China and many other Far Eastern countries can stop their constant attacks on our environment, and everyone can finally agree on measures to cut carbon emissions, maybe we can eventually slow the onset of global warming and reduce the natural disasters that plague our planet ever more frequently.

In the short and long term it is up to everyone, be we banker or beggar, to make the necessary changes in our lives that will bring about what we desire most, a happy and carefree life.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a wonderfully happy Christmas, and of course, a fruitful and happy New Year.

Roy.
