Some Democrats are questioning Obama’s decision to send air assaults last week without Congressional approval or a clear definition of America’s role in the mission in Libya.
“Our dear brother [Obama] has to be very careful in his decision…whenever government wants you to think and act in a certain way that would bring justification to an action that they are already planning to make, they must make the person that they hate, the boogey man.”
Farrakhan states that in every nation there is dissatisfaction and the CIA moves into a country and aligns with the people to stimulate a revolt against a leader that they don’t like. Although the Libyan people have legitimate grievances, The Minister suggests that imperialist powers such as France, England and the United States aren’t truly concerned with the countrymen.
“What is their dissatisfaction about?” Asks Farrakhan, “…do they have jobs? Yes. Do they have food? Yes. Has Gaddafi used the oil money to build Libya? Yes…Did he impose farming in the desert so that they could feed their own people? Yes.”
He warns that the Libyans may unite against the US and other countries if they kill Gaddafi. He advises that Barack meets with the country’s leader instead of using force and Louis gives his thoughts on the actual reason for war strikes.
“Don’t tell me and wise Black people or White people that you’re interested in Black suffering. Where were you in Rwanda? Where are you in the Congo? Why did you go to Darfur? Because oil is there! No, you don’t want to save the Libyan people, that’s your noble motive to hide your wicked agenda.”

WASHINGTON — Something seems fishy about the timing of President Barack Obama’s speech on job creation at the Brookings Institution on Tuesday and word from the Treasury Department on Monday that losses on the government’s bailout program have been $200 billion less than expected.
On economic matters, the president is riding a wave of relatively good news. Last week, the Labor Department announced that the national unemployment rate declined to 10% in November from 10.2% in October. Later this week, the Treasury Department will issue a report to make official the statements from administration officials that the Troubled Asset Relief Program’s expected losses will be $141 billion instead of $341 billion.
But here’s the odd thing: It’s been known for months that some of the TARP recipients have repaid their bailout cash for what has amounted to a 17% profit. At the same time, the government’s official watchdog said in an October report that it “will take years to assess all of the costs associated with TARP.”
The smaller than expected TARP losses followed by a presidential speech on job creation amounts to a one-two punch from the Obama administration. Why now? Neither White House nor Treasury officials responded to a request for comment on the timing, but it’s probably no coincidence that the president would like to see some of the remaining TARP money go to pay for a jobs bill that Democrats in Congress are now considering.
“That’s something that this White House is looking at,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters Monday.
In his remarks Tuesday, Obama is expected to address the issue of using TARP funds to further aid the recovery. According to Gibbs, the president is particularly concerned with the plight of small businesses, which have had a difficult time accessing credit as a result of the downturn.
A new batch of ecstasy pills favoring the president have hit the streets — and the approval ratings for the new pills are high.
Ecstasy is known for a sense of elation, diminished feelings of fear and anxiety, and ability to induce a sense of intimacy with others.
A stash of the brightly colored tablets was found Monday during a south Texas traffic stop.Police in Palmview detained a driver after finding black tar heroin, cocaine, marijuana and several Ecstasy pills in the back of his car.”
Although some are taking the news humorously, police departments worry that the pills look like vitamins for kids.
Police say that other Ecstasy pills they found were made to look like the cartoon characters Homer Simpson and the Smurfs.
The 22-year-old driver faces felony drug possession charges.
