- The word, DEMOCRACY, has been perverted with the most gullible fools being the UN and the American people.
There is a dark force of chaos-merchants afoot in our world who live to cause and then witness the disruption, suffering, enslavement, and death of others.
- Once again we have Uri treading on a topic never discussed much in the US. American media virtually self censors itself on all things Israel.
The USA should stop sponsoring phony “democracy revolutions” around the world. The world – and the American people – should sponsor a “democracy revolution” in the USA.
Phony “98% approval” shows Egypt’s “constitution” is a joke.
How has Iran become coup-proof, Zionist-proof Islamic democracy – while Egypt can’t escape its oppressors?

I’m tired of the power brokers whose only concern is whether or not the storms of nature and the storms of mankind will affect their outsourced pocketbooks.
Let’s dress in black for “black Tuesday” – to mourn the death of democracy.

Much of the terror has been imported…
In June 2009, Obama orchestrated Honduran President Manuel Zelaya’s ouster. A US supported fascist despot replaced him.

Let’s alienate as many people as possible right away. Nazi Germany was more “democratic” than America is today.
