The Clinton Emails, What did the Secretary know? - 2016 Election


Lets Get Real:

The above is interesting, for days the Obama Administration was spinning that the terror attack in Libya was spontaneous, this shows that Secretary Clinton knew the truth and did not want any of the blow back to hurt her,  the more you dig in to Libya the more you smell that the Obama Administration is hiding something, the voter still does not know what President Obama was doing during the vital hours of the attack.   The House Select Committee should make sure it has all the information, that means getting Obama's schedule for the day, and developing a minute by minute guide, down to the last hour to see what POTUS and Secretary Clinton were doing, then we might find the real answer to Libya. 

Ed Balls and the 2015 General Election - Post 2015 Election


Lets Get Real:

At least Mr Balls is taking the election result on the chin, unlike his former Leader who from reports thinks he lost the election because Labour voters were to lazy to come out and vote. This blog is being serious.   The Labour Party has to move to the right, it needs to be for people who are at work, yes it should care about those on the bottom of society but it should be a balance.   The idea of mansion taxes, attack on business and more welfare did not help the Labour Party, as this blogger found when talking to Conservative voters, the one theme they had was that the Conservative Party was for the working man ( generic sense ), somehow Labour has become about what the elite sees, that is not the country.   At least Mr Balls is not blaming the voter. 

Obama on 42% Approval - 2nd Term Blues

Gallup: Reports on its daily tracking poll on the job approval for POTUS, today President Obama is on 42% approval,  while 53% disapprove of the Obama record

Lets Get Real:

This kind of numbers does not get Party loyalty in the Congress, the President has many problems, there is Iraq and Syria and the new war on terror, their are internal arguments with the Democratic Party over free trade, and while the unemployment is low that has more to with the fact that people have just given up, this blog understands that feeling.   The Oval Office does not care that that its low numbers could damage the Democratic nominee in 2016, the ego of the Oval is over the top, thus the lack of new action of IS.    The US voter can see that POTUS wants to pass the problem on to his successor, a strong President would send the troops back in to Iraq and the US voter gets that fact, they are not fools, they know its going to happen, thus they do not trust their President. 

Lets Get Real:

The worry for the US voter is that if Secretary Clinton is elected POTUS she will think that she has the right to decide what is released by the White House.   One can almost see it now, a future,  breaking news,  "  POTUS kept Server in White House, "  The Clintons do not think the laws applies to them, they make Richard Nixon look honest, at least he kept his tapes, okay fought over there release but at least the Government had the tapes, not in this case, the House Select Committee has to have a tough investigation, all the Clinton staff have to be bought before the Committee, if something stinks there is a reason. 

The Clinton Emails - Election 2016


Lets Get Real:

As the emails were chosen by the Clinton Camp there is little chance of these emails causing any problems for the Clintons, it was on their server, they chose which emails should be kept and which should be deleted.    These emails concern the terror attack on the US Consulate in Libya, the article states that the New York Times reviewed the emails before released and has stated, "appear to back up Mrs. Clinton's previous assertions that she did not receive classified information at her private email address".".   The select committee should not take the world of Hillary Clinton, lets see what her staff were up to the night of the terror act and their reaction and the Secretary's reaction to the attack.   This scandal is far from over.

The Strategic importance of Palmyra Part 2 - New War on Terror


Lets Get Real:

Thus the question what will the US and its Allies do about Palmyra, the answer NOTHING, the Obama Oval is weak, it would have to reverse years of policy to do something NOW, the Oval would have to admit that it was wrong in 2011 when it removed ALL troops from Iraq, as this allowed for the growth of IS in Syria and Iraq.    The Oval Office wants to hand over the issue of IS to its successor, of course by then it will be worse, one has to question will Obama defend Baghdad if he as too, is he willing to allow IS to take OVER all of Iraq as the cost of not using US ground troops.    The failure of the Obama Oval when it comes to Syria  and Iraq will be a major issue of the 2016 Presidential election, when the new President takes over he or she will have a lot to deal with when they reach the Oval Office, the damage will have been done by a weak US President. 

What should the West do about Palmyra - New War on Terror


Lets Get Real:

This is where the Middle East gets murky, the Assad Regime is a vile and murderous regime, but they are secular, also at present the Assad Regime has the backing of Russia, so lets get the Russians to pull their finger out, they like going in to other Countries, let pressure Putin to send troops and planes to take on IS in Syria.    Then everyone would have skin in the game as it is said by our American cousins.   This would show that Russia does get the fact that its part of the international community, of course the Russian military might not to be hot on the idea, we have seen what happens to prisoners of IS.    The UN and this means the US and Russia have to DO SOMETHING, when you wipe out history you destroy the past for future generations and help in the destruction of civic society,
