By Olivier Knox President Barack Obama is “deadly serious” about wiping out the massive backlog in veterans’ disability benefits claims by 2015, White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Tuesday. A leading veterans group said Obama must still show that he is “personally” involved in resolving the issue. The problem predates Obama’s arrival [...]
Overall, President Obama has been “a force for destruction” who has “advanced inequality, wealth concentration, deportations, imprisonments, and the de-funding of basic services in order to fund banks, billionaires, and bombers,” distinguished peace activist David Swanson says.
The job market for Veterans has shown some promising signs of strength, but that doesn’t mean we’re letting up now. Instead, we’re piling on—focusing on securing the gains in veteran employment this summer with two important events.
In a recent interview, Noam Chomsky said he never expected much of President Obama, adding, ”The one thing that did surprise me is his attack on civil liberties. They go well beyond anything I would have anticipated, and they don’t seem easy to explain.”
In the last month of 2011, the United States Senate voted in approval of the National Defense Authorization Act and President Obama expressed no concern about the law which would strip Americans of their fifth and sixth amendment rights.
We knew the Bush/41 administration hated vets. What government would cut funding for veterans in the middle of a war? Bush and Cheney, themselves notorious draft dodgers during the Vietnam War, led by Senator McCain, kept out of prison by a secret presidential pardon, used their wartime “moral authority” to label vets as “freeloaders.”
President Bush and Vice President Cheney claimed they had repeatedly visited Dover AFB to honor American war dead. Their claim that this was done quietly, with no cameras and no publicity is now proven to have been a total lie.
Last week, President Obama gained what he called a “great diplomatic victory” when he “convinced” Israel to issue an apology to Turkey over their “misunderstanding” involving the massacre of peace activists and journalists on the high seas.
We now know that President Obama believes there is little or no prospect for peace in the Middle East unless enough Israeli Jews, in particular the young to whom he appealed directly, understand that the only way for Israel to survive as a Jewish and democratic state is “through the realization of a viable and independent Palestine” and then insist that their government commits itself in negotiations to ending the occupation of the West Bank (now well into in its 45th year).
From my Press TV debate with Lee Kaplan: “I’m not accusing you of dual loyalties. You only have one loyalty and it’s to Israel. It’s not to the United States…you should be in jail right now, sharing a cell with Jonathon Pollard.”
