With Obama In Office It Is Great To See Protests At The UN Shift From The US President Toward The President Of Iran

Iranian President's UN Appearance Brings Protests

More than a dozen rallies were held around the city today to coincide with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's appearance at the United Nations General Assembly.

At one rally at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza near the United Nations, protesters with Iran 180 Degrees held a mock trial – indicting Ahmadinejad for many alleged crimes, including persecuting activists and journalists, persecuting women, holding nuclear war ambitions and being a puppet of powerful fundamentalist clerics.

Iran 180 Degrees is made up of representatives from the New York Civil Liberties Union, the NAACP, 100 Hispanic Women and the Progressive Iranian Committee, as well the UJA-Federation.

"The people inside Iran who are willing to go out there and risk their lives to basically confront this regime with ill doings that it has perpetrated on the people of Iran for the last 32 years, love to see the fact that Iranians here feel the need to come out here and support them," said rally organizer Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi. "And stand up with them and get their voices heard."

Another rally against Ahmadinejad featured former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

“For too long, the world has acquiesced a regime in Iran that through mass murder, violence and intimidation has denied basic rights to your brothers and sisters and friends and relatives," said Giuliani.

Ahmadinejad addressed the General Assembly this afternoon and denounced sanctions against his country. The U.S. delegation walked out during the speech.

The Iranian leader said that some in the world speculated that the U.S. government supported the terrorists behind the September 11th terrorist attacks, in order to support Israel. Ahmadinejad did not provide any reasons for his volatile statements.

Meanwhile, after days of tips to avoid East Side gridlock that would worsen as President Barack Obama moved throughout Midtown for his U.N. speech, city drivers heeded the warning. Most avenues near the United Nations had easy-flowing traffic worthy of a Sunday morning.

"It's been organized pretty well, I can't really complain," said one New Yorker.

"I think people used different things to come to work, like the train. It's easier," said another.

"I have no expectations of finding a taxi. I'm walking everywhere," said a third.

The side streets did have the worst traffic, with many in the East 40s shut down between First and Third Avenues.

More closures are scheduled for Friday, but police say by next week all streets will be reopened.

Jon Stewart "Saddened By Obama" - Is Now A Racist

Stewart 'saddened' by Obama

(CNN) – Count Jon Stewart among the legion of frustrated supporters of President Obama.
Appearing on Fox News' The Bill O'Reilly show Wednesday, the liberal comedian said he thought Obama would do a better job when he voted for him in the 2008 presidential election.
"I think people feel a disappointment in that there was a sense that Jesus will walk on water and no you are looking at it like, 'Oh look at that, he's just treading water' … I thought he'd do a better job," said Stewart.
Stewart, who maintains he ultimately does not regret his vote for Obama, said he is "saddened" the president hasn't done more to change the structure of Washington.

"I thought we were in such a place [in 2008], much like the Tea Party feels now, that the country … needed a more drastic reconstruction – I have been saddened to see that someone who ran on the idea that you can't expect to get different results with the same people and the same system has kept in place so much of the same system and same people," he said.

Obama's Boot On The Corporate Neck Philosophy In His Own Unscripted Words

Obama's Boot On The Corporate Neck Philosophy In His Own Unscripted Words

* Stripped Student Loan Servicing away from the Banks and gave it to the government
** NO mention of regulating the increasing tuition costs as he did with health care. Instead THROW MORE GOVERNMENT MONEY in response to invoices sent from schools

* Regulated Bank Credit Card and Mortgage Loan Approval Policies
**No mention about how lack of confidence in Obama's policies and concern about if they will be attacked later by the Government Confiscators is restricting banks from taking risks and thus are not lending (See the comments of the founder of Home Depot)

* Banned discrimination against "Preexisting Conditions" and "You can't be dropped if you get sick" -
** No mention that Obama will INCREASE THE COST OF HEALTH CARE because as RISK POOLS these policies have effectively NATIONALIZED the risk. THERE IS NOT going to be net cost savings. Reports are now showing this, regardless of what the CBO said last year prior to the vote.
** In summary - in order to prevent INDIVIDUALS from going bankrupt - he runs the risk of bankrupting the entire nation by putting in a blockbuster plan that will be hungry like a furnace for firewood

Home Depot Founder Issues "Racist" Attack On Obama Economic Policies That Are Hurting Business

AJC: Bernie Marcus unloads on Obama administration in CNBC interview

Oh brother. If you thought that the boycott against "Whole Foods" and "Target" was bad - wait until we see picket signs by progressive-fundamentalists outside of Home Depots throughout the land.

Bernie Marcus did not have any kind words for the Obama administration’s policies during a CNBC interview today.

Here’s part of CNBC’s story of the interview:

In a scathing criticism of the Obama administration, Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus told CNBC Friday that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner should have a reality-TV show about small business to illustrate how out of touch Democrats’ policies are with the private sector.

“My solution is that you take a guy like Timothy Geithner and put him in a new reality show. It’s called ‘Timothy Geithner Does Small Business’, something like [the porn movie] ‘Debbie Does Dallas’, and it ends up the same way,” said Marcus. ”Basically, what they’re doing to small business is very similar in this case [to what ‘Debbie’ did to Dallas.]”

To play out his story, Marcus said Geithner would have to deal with the state, federal and local regulations that he contends stymie business, and then the public official may understand the challenges that small business people face.

Hyperbole aside, Marcus said the administration’s poor performance warrants the Democrats being voted out of office. He did not, however, call for Geithner to resign.

Nobel Peach Prize Winning Obama Approves Record $60B Military Arms Deal To Saudi Arabia

Saudis, U.S. near $60 billion arms deal

The American "Military Industrial Complex" trumps "War Is Not The Answer".

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration will soon notify Congress of an arms package for Saudi Arabia worth up to $60 billion, U.S. officials said Monday, a potentially record-breaking deal that may help counter Iran's growing regional muscle.

The deal would apparently represent the largest single U.S. arms sale ever approved. It would allow Saudi Arabia, the most militarily advanced of the Arab Gulf states and one of the richest countries in the world, to buy top-line U.S.-made helicopters and fighter jets with ranges that would span the Middle East and beyond.

Criticism Of Obama That You Will Never Hear From An Establishment Democrat

You probably do not have the Flash Player (Get Adobe Flash Player Here) installed for your browser or the video files are misplaced on your server!

I have far more respect for the "Unattached Progressives" that are more likely to express their views on "Democracy Now" than I do for "Establishment Progressives" who will protect their party - regardless of how much they have to compromise their ideology in the process.
