Remarks by the President at the National Defense University

(May 23, 2013)

So I look forward to engaging Congress and the American people in efforts to refine, and ultimately repeal, the AUMF’s mandate. And I will not sign laws designed to expand this mandate further. Our systematic effort to dismantle terrorist organizations must continue. But this war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises. That’s what our democracy demands.

Nina’s unfortunate loss is further proof that working with the Democrats is a dead end road for folks seeking to challenge the status quo. Democrats will spend millions of dollars (at a time like this!) and pull out all the stops to undermine candidates fighting for the people.

Nina lost for a very simple reason. In the closing stretch THIS happened: „Democratic Majority for Israel, a hybrid PAC/super PAC that has spent $1.2 million on ads supporting Brown and opposing Turner“ – & the ads viciously lied about her. The lies stuck

Sommer der Freiheit – Verboten!

Es gibt ganz offensichtlich mehr als das, was von Teilen der deutschen Linken (sichtbar) übriggeblieben ist. Würde dieser Teil der deutschen Linken auch gegen Leute vorgehen, die gegen Gesundheitspass und Impfpflicht zu Hunderttausenden auf die Straße gehen? Würden sie auch in Paris an der Straße stehen und die Demonstranten als „Schwurbler“ und „Verschwörungstheoretiker“ diffamieren?
