Change You Can't Believe In
by James Dahlberg
Guest blogger James does not have his own blog but like Ian T. was recently thrown off a big, pretentious U.S. newsblog after posting a long comment challenging claims made for a dodgy health product. It seems the blog owners do not agree with James and Ian that product placement has no place in what is presented as factual reporting James is on another topic here however. For his first contribution to The Daily Stirrer he looks at how the popularity of Barack Obama, the Yes We Can" man has collapsed from the record levels seen right after his inauguration as President to the latest polls that make him the most unpopular president ever after a year in office. The economy, unemployment, the disatrous health reform bill and weakness on foreign polcy have played a big part but how much is due to the failings of man himself.

Guest blogger James does not have his own blog but like Ian T. was recently thrown off a big, pretentious U.S. newsblog after posting a long comment challenging claims made for a dodgy health product. It seems the blog owners do not agree with James and Ian that product placement has no place in what is presented as factual reporting James is on another topic here however..

A shock defeat in the Senate special election in Mass. the safest Democrat state in the Union, poll numbers that already make him the most unpopular President ever after one year in office, an incipient rebellion in the ranks of his own party and former supporters in the media saying in public Hillary Clinton should challenge for the Democrat nomination in 2012. Where did it all go wrong for Barack Obama?

Many people are asking similar questions even if nobody has quite pointed out that he has noticeable failed to walk on water, feed the poor with five loaves and two fishes, bring Donald Young* back from the dead. One miracle he has performed however is to turn dollar bills into toilet paper. No wonder the currency is, to use a British phrase, going down the pan.

What has happened is simple to explain. The glib phrases of the campaign trail look shoddy and empty in the cold, hard light of office. Soaring rhetoric has not metaporhized into solid policies for dealing with real problems. "Yes we can" has become a more realistic "maybe we can but it will be tough." Worst of all Barack Hussein Obama, the Obamessiah, the chosen one, the beloved leader has displayed an unsuspected talent for pissing off the people who supported him. Why is that? One reason, his ego. The Obama Presidency is about making Barack Hussein Obama the most famous and most popular man in the world. Everything is about him.

Take a look at his health care reform. So much was promised, so little offered. This should have come as no surprise, Obama's objective was to go down in history as the man who reformed American health care but not necessarily to reform it for the better. His bill, purportedly to address the malpractices of the health insurers looked as if it had been written by those health insurers. Aside from benefits for a few minority groups Obama owed for services rendered during the campaign the only people other than the insurers who stood to gain were the very rich. The poor, the very people who needed a reform faced a scheme that made insurance compulsory and would impose fines on those who refused to buy insurance. And Obama's crooked administration had the audacity to try to ram this ill thought out and unconstitutional bill through the House without giving Representatives time to read it.

Barack Obama takes the arrogance of power to levels not seen since the Roman Emperors.

Was he ever the man of the people, whose common touch convinced a mass of people who had not previously registered not only to engage with the electoral system for the first time but to contribute and even to become campaign workers. Those people were shafted by the Great Pretender. Consider the words uttered in is recent State Of The union address when he said "People are disappointed with the lack of clear progress. I overestimated he ability of ordinary people to understand my agenda." This is clearly a mistake of mine."

In other words: "You schmucks are just too dumb to understand me."

Well that will take another couple of points off his poll rating when the next batch of surveys come through. But it it Americans who are too dumb to understand Obama or is it Obama who is too dumb to understand Americans and America. Consider his remark about Republican opposition to his economic stimulus bill soon after the inauguration; "Hasn't anybody told them I won?"

Many responded, "Hasn't anybody told Obie this is a democracy and the opposition's job is to oppose?" Time and again Obama has taken that imperious tone of command both at home and abroad. He seems to think he only has to say he wants something to happen and it will happen. What is worse, he is incapable of learning form his embarrassments. How many times do the Russians and Chinese have to make him look a fool before he learns "negotiate" is not a synonym of "command" and that he is not President Of The World.

More than a few Americans who have never been core Republicans are talking about how good a President George W. Bush was compared to Obama. That is a measure of just how bad Obama is.

The exponentially higher intensity of 5G frequencies however, takes the health risks to humans to a whole different level.

Criminal damage in Cambridge reveals the police soft peddaling on Extinction Rebellion crimes Nobody is allowed to walk on the grass outside Trinity College Cambridge.

Otherwise, set one foot on that sacred turf and you will soon find yourself experiencing the full force of Newtonian gravity; rugby-tackled to the ground by a puce-faced porter in a bowler hat.

Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified BioweaponFor the past two weeks mainstream media reporting of the epidemic of a new strain of coronavirus in China has been getting more and more hysterical. However, reports have pushed back against one "conspiracy theory" about the origins of the virus that has now infected as many as 70,000+ people in the central China city of Wuhan alone (depending on whom you believe).

Corona Virus: Should We Worry
The official data coming out of China and from other sources including the World Health Organisation (WHO) on the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus continues to suggest an exponential growth rate.

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.
