20,000 shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles on the loose, and Obama’s role?


On this page and many others has been suggested that the American president had a responsibility to help manage well the so-called “Arab Spring”,  in order to avert further deteriorating conditions in the Middle East and in the world. …   But now comes word that while conditions deteriorate in Iraq /Afghanistan, and because of the Arab Spring , America’s ally Israel in the region now finds itself under additional extreme pressures from Egypt,  Iran and the Palestinians —  while reportedly some 20,000 shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles are missing  from unguarded weapon stockpiles in Libya. .. .

Deadly weapons acquired by the bad guys of the region and on the way to the black markets of the terrorists world-wide? 

Just sayin’. …

Persons of the Week: Mahmoud Abbas and Barack Obama


Persons of the Week in unison because their relationship and the results of the same shows that leaning over backwards and doing somersaults to appease the Palestinians while denigrating the Israelis, results not in useful outcomes, but in a naive American Middle East foreign policy detrimental to the interests of the United States. …  Is it also another example of how the Obama Administration has mismanaged   the “Arab Spring” and how the Palestinians have played the President? …

Just sayin’. ..’

Person of the Week: Anita Dunn, former senior aide to President Obama


Senior aide at the Obama White House, Anita Dunn, was merely a female potted plant, among other White House potted plants of the same gender?   The former White House Communications Director is quoted as saying  the Obama White House could have been taken to court for being a hostile workplace “…  because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.”

Draws additional attention to the fact that the “Hope and Change” rhetoric of the Obama White House is simply a smoke and mirrors creation?   . …

President Obama has misunderstood and mismanaged the “Arab Spring”?


Regarding the media-named “Arab Spring” uprisings in the Middle East, on May 7, 2011, on this page (as others did elsewhere),  PanAm pointed out that Dubya Bush deserved credit for encouraging democracy in places where democracy had been missing for ages — but also suggested it was imperative that the changes  needed to be managed wisely, otherwise chaos and damage to America’s interests would result. …  Well, there has been chaos, and America’s best interests are in  jeopardy   because  President Obama   has not managed  the changes well. …

Just sayin. …

Person of the Week: Valerie Jarrett


Yes, Valerie Jarrett, for urging the U.S. Congress to pass immediately the president’s “jobs bill“, tho’  it has yet to be presented to the Legislative Branch, nor is it reportedly even completely written  ( remember the Health Bill episode?!).  Whatever they do or say and however inaccurate, hypocritical and nonsensical, it seems politicians  such as Ms Jarrett will say whatever they think will put the other branches of government in a bad light — but apparently they are not aware that it reflects most poorly on themselves.

Any wonder why American hold politicians in so low regard? …

The enforcement of immigration laws of the U.S.A. depends on “who you know” and on political expediency?

The illegal immigration problem of the United States of America will never be solved because the politically well “connected” get preferential treatment and because whomever occupies the Presidency needs the votes of those who favor illegal immigration?

Just sayin’. …

Someone at the New York Times gives Palin a somewhat decent “shake”?!


Although PanAm does not care to see Gov. Palin enter the presidential race, again, it is  newsworthy from this perch that the powers that be at the TIMES permitted the publishing of “Some of Sarah Palin’s Ideas Cross the Political Divide“.   She is cited as having been critical of the  “Permanent political class” of all stripes that governs America and of  “Corporate crony capitalism”, as well as having been critical too of  “…  the collusion of big government and big business and big finance to the detriment of all the rest”. … 

Particularly so grating is that it’s so true that so many politicians  “… arrive in Washington of modest means and then somehow ride the gravy train to fabulous wealth.”…  Something IS rotten in,  Washington. …

Is it a new beginning for the New York Times,  transitioning to being fair?  Probably not, but it’s worth noting. …
