If I were a family member of one of the police officers killed, most recently in Baton Rouge, I would not want to see President Obama. How can he go to funerals for slain police officers when by his conduct, he has encouraged the execution of police officers in this country. The President does not understand – Americans of every color and ethnic origin depend on our police for protection from those who want to destroy this country. We have a President who doesn’t want to offend radical islamists who want to destroy this country, but who has had no problem offending and denigrating the police in this country during his presidency. Why should Americans be surprised when radical groups start executing our police?
What has the so called Republican establishment done for this country? It gave us George W. Bush and the never ending wars in the Middle East with no end in sight. It gave us trillions in debt as a result of the wars in the Middle East. It bailed out Wall Street and the big banks while the middle class started dying in 2007. But even worse it gave us Obama. The Republican establishment gave us McCain and Palin (remember I can see Russia!) to run the first time against Obama, and the second time against Obama they gave the country Romney (called 47% of the country welfare bums), a friend and part of the Wall Street establishment. Yes, by electing Obama the country repudiated the policies of Bush and the Republican establishment. Now the Republican establishment says Trump must be stopped. The Republican establishment does not care about conservative values, but it does care about Wall Street and the big banks. It’s okay to bail out Wall Street, but when millions were losing their homes, the Republican establishment said they never should have bought homes they could not afford. Teach them a lesson – let them lose their homes. The Republican establishment should not tell us who we should elect since the values of the Republican establishment are not the values of America.
President Obama indicated prior to his State of the Union address that his speech would be short. As with everything with this President – Promises, Promises, Promises. For over an hour President Obama lectured the American people. It was not the speech of a leader, but a speech by a President who is so pompous that he is unable to comprehend the damage he has done to this country. President Reagan’s State of the Union speeches averaged 40 minutes as opposed to President Obama’s which averaged 1 hour 7 minutes. http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/national-international/As-Obamas-Last-State-of-the-Union-Nears-a-Look-at-What-His-Predecessors-Said-364900721.html
I guess he must believe that if he talks long enough the American people might actually believe the nation is headed in the right direction. Unfortunately, the next morning his speech is like bad hangover.
Ronald Reagan never forgot his roots in rural Illinois when he was President. President Obama has spent six years as President apologizing for being an American. Ronald Reagan loved America and never apologized for being an American. Ronald Reagan never apologized for America’s Judeo-Christian values. President Obama, while radical Muslims are killing Americans, equates American Christians with radical Muslims. It is sad, but true. We now have a President who golfs after it is announced that radical Muslims have again slit the throat of an American. President Obama’s image may never be added to to Mt. Rushmore, but I am sure his picture will be displayed prominently in every mosque around the world!
President Obama will give his seventh State of the Union Address at 8:00 pm and Freeport City
Council will meet at 6:00 pm in its temporary quarters at 524 W. Stephenson Streeet, 3rd floor.
If you have Comcast Cable, go to channel 17 to watch live. Since most council meetings are over before 8:00 pm, you will be able to watch both events! It easy to summarize President Obama’s talk without hearing it – more taxes on the “rich” under the guise of helping the middle class and more regulations. Obama has had 6 years to help the middle class. If we get any more help, there won’t be a middle class.
As to the council meeting, don’t miss Alderperson KIemm (1st Ward) leading the Council in the Pledge of Allegiance. Some items of interest on the council agenda are as follows:
2nd reading of ordinance amending Flood Management Areas which expands Yellow Creek
Flood Hazzard Area on the south side of Freeport. See memo on change at
Resolution Adopting 2015 Economic Development Goals
Resolution in support of expanding Enterprise Zone for Swift Hospitality Group. They propose building more senior residential care units. Our only hope is that said units will pay real estates immediately after being built. Otherwise, they will just be another burden on the services in the City with more of the tax burden for said services being shifted to the few remaining small businesses and homeowners.

It was no surprise that President Obama was not in the United States on Veterans Day. Pictures were all over the news showing the President dressed like the Communist Chinese leaders. It was just another insult from a man who never wore the uniform of his country, but has enough nerve to cozy up to the Chinese communist leaders on Veterans Day. On Veterans Day we salute those who served and are serving our country. Obama on Veterans Day saluted the communist Chinese.
Thomas Frieden, CDC Director, has known for months that Ebola was killing thousands in Africa. He continually appeared on American television shows saying that Ebola would not be a problem in the United States. Surprise! Like everything else in the Obama administration, nothing is a problem until it is a crisis. How many Americans must die around the world until President Obama decides we have a problem? The answer is simple – lots of Americans. On its website the CDC states in regard to the Ebola crisis:
“CDC urges all US residents to avoid nonessential travel to Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia because of unprecedented outbreaks of Ebola in those countries.”
What about keeping individuals out of this country with Ebola? What about a travel ban from countries with a high number of Ebola cases? From Ebola to ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria), there is no leadership. On October 3, I asked – How much more damage can Obama do in the next two years? The answer is more obvious every day.
