“I’ve never seen devastation like this. It is heartbreaking,” said Obama Friday while touring the state of Alabama—decimated by what was the worst tornado outbreak in at least 37 years, and maybe even the worst in history.
On Tuesday and Wednesday approximately 258 tornadoes, some up to a mile wide, hit not only Alabama, but also Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, and Virginia, with some of the twisters traveling more than a hundred miles on the ground. The storms included a multiple-vortex tornado that hit Cullman County, Alabama, as well as one particularly massive funnel cloud, perhaps a mile wide, that rampaged through both the cities of Birmingham and Tuscaloosa and is estimated to have traveled some 180-225 miles altogether. At least 350 people were killed and thousands were left homeless.
Well, we once again seem to be at a similar junction. The latest news , as of late in the day Tuesday, places the death toll in Joplin at 117 (that number may rise, however, for at least 1,500 people are still missing), while a new tornado has just struck Oklahoma City. But what transpired on Sunday, as the Zionist plunderers were holding their “policy conference” in Washington, is winds of 198 miles per hour wrought a six-mile path of destruction through Joplin, completely obliterating a hospital, a school, smashing cars, and splintering homes into kindling. The Weather Channel has an interesting "before" and "after" photo comparison of the city’s St. John's Regional Medical Center. Have a look.
The same site also provides "before" and "after" satellite images of parts of two different counties in Alabama that were leveled by the tornadoes of late April. In this case, you simply run your mouse over the images to see the contrast in views—but again, it's well worth having a look.
In his speech at AIPAC (see transcript ), Obama gave assurances that American tax dollars will continue to flow in the billions to the Zionist state. His words, you will notice, were met with repeated rounds of applause:
Well we can understand why his audience would be so blissfully happy. Israel receives approximately $3 billion a year in direct military assistance, or roughly $8.2 million per day, from the U.S. taxpayers. Add in the cost of the wars currently being fought on the Zionist state’s behalf, as well as other “indirect” assistance, and the figure shoots up into the trillions. At present, the national debt of the United States stands above $14 trillion. Why, mired in such colossal arrears, are we still giving huge sums of money each year to Israel, a state which has more billionaires per capita than any other nation in the world? With this kind of wealth, why can’t Israel fund its own military? Why must it continuously, year after year, leech off of America? The national wealth of the American nation is being plundered. With our politicians bought off and our media controlled by Zionists, the American people are being played for suckers. What in essence we are witnessing here is a classic case of a parasite slowly killing its host. And as we watch the host inch closer and closer to ruin and deprivation, we now observe the parasites, lo and behold, preparing to invade a new host.
Two days ago, I posted some information on an interview Cynthia McKinney did over the weekend with Iran's Press TV in which the former Georgia Congresswoman revealed that candidates for federal office in the United States have in the past been required to sign pledges of support for Israel. Refusal to sign the pledge resulted in the candidate being unable to obtain funding for her or his campaign. If you have not read the story or seen the Cynthia McKinney videos, I urge you to do so, for they are an eye-opener.
In my article on the tornadoes of three weeks ago, I talked about disaster relief monies allocated to FEMA by way of the Department of Homeland Security's annual budget. For 2011, the funding level requested was $1.95 billion—more than a billion dollars less than what Israel received this year in direct aid from our government. Here in part is what I wrote:
On Sunday, Obama closed out his speech at the AIPAC conference with a perorative appeal that no doubt will win him many Jewish votes in the 2012 election, and probably (even more importantly) lots of Jewish money for his campaign. Here is what he said:
But as I noted in a three-part series of articles I wrote seven months ago, our support for the racist, murderous, apartheid state of Israel does not seem to be bringing us many blessings from God.
