Monday Post

So begins the work-week...

Premier Kathleen Wynne to re-introduce the May 1st budget when the legislature returns on July 2nd:

Speaking to reporters at Queen’s Park, Wynne said she is “very excited” to implement the budget. She also stuck to her promise of eliminating the $12.5-billion deficit by 2017-18.

The Liberal budget, presented on May 1, includes a 10-year, $2.5-billion jobs plan, $15 billion for transit projects in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton areas and $14 billion for infrastructure projects.

Remember- the province of Detroit Ontario's debt is over $271 billion. The manufacturing sector is depleting. Ontario also has some of the highest energy costs in the country. Its "sunshine list" has expanded by eleven percent. There is no money to pay for these projects, pay down the debt and not freeze the wages of public servants.

Ontario Liberal voters, this is your government.

The Obama administration is willing to talk with Iran over deteriorating security conditions in Iraq and is not ruling out potential U.S.-Iranian military cooperation in stemming the advance of Sunni extremists, Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday.

Now, I think it's not a matter of Obama's idiocy, weakness or indifference. There is no way one cannot see this as an attempt to empower Iran and destabilise the region or at least remove any vestige of American influence and authority on the global stage. One can conclude that was Obama's endgame. It seems clear given his weak posturing and overtures to dictators and his platitudes to the ignorant electorate. Obama withdrew from Iraq. He even gave a time-table. He has never responded to any crisis or threat in the region the way previous leaders had and has no intention of doing so. Iraqi soldiers simply walk away leaving behind American material for ISIS. Yet another humanitarian crisis erupts in the Middle East. Yet, with a crippled American economy, he still insists on the use of foreign (ie- Venezuelan or Saudi) oil, further empowering dictatorial regimes.

Impeach him. Now.

Further aggravating already tense relations between Russia and Ukraine, the Russian energy giant Gazprom cut off natural gas supplies to its neighbor on Monday, warning that the reduction could diminish the amount of gas flowing to Europe.

And now, Pixel Trek will take you where no pixel has gone before.

In fairness, the "U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement" was signed by Bush, don't forget. It's important when refuting claims that #44 "ended the war."

The act does also say ;
"The Iraqi government requests temporary assistance from the U.S. Forces to support its efforts in keeping peace and stability in Iraq, including cooperation in conducting operations against al Qaida and other terrorist groups and outlaw groups and the remnants of former regime."

While we're going over history, why not read Clinton's 1998 "Iraq Liberation Act" re; weapons of mass destruction.

But this ball was in Obama's court, the same man who gave a time-table for complete withdrawal, who claimed al Qaeda was on the run and who may now give Iran the upper hand in this.

This will not end well.
