Obama's First Week: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

"After a few days in office...

The Good, the bad and the ugly?

It's hard to analyze the actions of the new administration as far as the good goes. That remains to be seen.

The ugly is easier.

Drone attacks
in Pakistan kill civilians. Of course the media whores are telling us some of those killed are 'al Qaeda' types.

We can't accuse Obama of lying. He's been telling us for a good while that he's taking the "War on Terror' to Afghanistan and Pakistan, whether they like it or not. Look for a lot more of this. Killing from the sky is now as American as apple pie and as kosher as a pasture-raised, humanely slaughtered cow.

Obama's abortion stance could get ugly.

Besides making abortion on demand a "fundamental right" throughout the United States, FOCA would effectively nullify informed consent laws, waiting periods, health safety regulations for abortion clinics, etc.

Furthermore, medical professionals and institutions that refused abortions also would lose legal protections. FOCA would expose individuals, organizations, and governments - including federal, state, and local government agencies - to costly civil actions for purported violations of the act.

States and individual rights do not seem to matter to a federal government that acts like a 'Father Knows Best' authoritarian figure.

Potential domestic 'stimulus' funds will be diverted all over the world.

President Obama yesterday lifted a ban on U.S. funding for international health groups that perform abortions, promote legalizing the procedure or provide counseling about terminating pregnancies.

Obama said he would also work with Congress to restore U.S. funding support for the United Nations Population Fund "to reduce poverty, improve the health of women and children, prevent HIV/AIDS and provide family planning assistance to women in 154 countries."

Much of this funding will be going to Africa for population control, a long term agenda of the elite.

The Freedom of Information Act gets a makeover.

The Freedom of Information Act should be administered with a clear presumption: In the face of doubt, openness prevails. The Government should not keep information confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure, because errors and failures might be revealed, or because of speculative or abstract fears.

I'm excited about this. Just think of the previously hidden information about the facts of the 9/11 attacks, all of the lies that took us into false wars, the crimes and corruption of the federal government, Wall Street insider scams and maybe even some information about the Federal Reserve that will come to light.

We'll watch and wait, mostly wait.

An Executive Order -- Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Personnel

That will keep the crew in line, don't you think.

Guantanamo Bay

Here's an interesting statement from the executive order;

Over the past 7 years, approximately 800 individuals whom the Department of Defense has ever determined to be, or treated as, enemy combatants have been detained at Guantánamo.

Real 'change' will come from truth and honesty.

The continued wars and murders are not part of the honesty we need.
