If a person was going to attempt to list everywhere the US government fails at something, let alone anything, one realizes there is not enough room in a blog, or time to even write it. The list is so vast for a country so young. Where to begin.


Ever since “white people” came to North America, killed and took the land from the native Indians they havent changed. America has shown in their short years of existence, that their policies in how they deal with their own people or others is no different. America has the reputation of taking what they want, period. If you dont give them what they want, they will take it in whatever way they think will work.


The Unites States has proven time and time again that they are no different than the most spoiled ugliest bully on the playground. That very same kid everyone cant stand. But who would we blame for that reputation? EVERYONE! From the people of the United States who have allowed their politicians and secret services to flourish and act as they have to the leaders of other countries who do the exact same. Every single one of us is responsible. A bully has to have a payoff for his ugly behavior to continue, or he wouldnt bully, and the US is no different.


The United States has a process to which laws come into play as explained in the photo above. Sounds good, but in this process there are flaws. Who are these people that vote everything into place including who to go to war with? I started to research “criminals” within the government of the USA, and to my surprise (sarcastically said), the list is quite long. From a country who states to be “exceptional” or states “to set the standards,” the United States should do anything BUT set the standards for others.

Hypocrisy in the United States…

Couldnt be more evident when you look at the convictions or guilty please out of the law makers of the United States. They have NO MORALS or STANDARDS in the congress (who by the way can serve like any ruling family until they drop dead). While the US dictates to others, please remember how they conduct themselves, and who the “dictators” really are.

As you world politicians, leaders, presidents etc deal with the United States of America…

Understand YOU are as much a part of the problem as the United States is. You ALLOW them to continue their behavior, and in most cases, turn a blind eye to it, or work with them out of fear. YOU are part of the problem! If you want things to change in the world, YOU MUST stand up to them, stop paying for them, aiding them. Hold yourselves and your people to a BETTER standard than the American government does (which doesnt look to be too high).

Press TV Reports:

Israeli citizens hold key US government positions:

Apart from the significant presence of Israeli citizens at sensitive non-elected federal positions such as head of Homeland Security, a large number of Israelis sit in the Senate and House of Representatives.

The Israeli lawmakers at the Congress have the power to propose and vote on crucial bills like waging wars on any country, forcing the US to veto any UN Security Council resolution unfavorable to Israel, and approving funds and lucrative government contracts in favor of Israel.

The prominent US-Israeli officials in the list include Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Head of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, Chairman of Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board Richard Perle, former Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowits, Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith, National Security Advisor Elliot Abrams, White House Deputy Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten, Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Marc Grossman, Director of Policy Planning at the State Department Richard Haass, US Trade Representative (cabinet-level position) Robert Zoellick, Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board Eliot Cohen, former UN Ambassador John Bolton, White House Political Director Ken Melman, White House Speechwriter David Frum, Deputy Secretary of Commerce Samuel Bodman, and Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board Henry Kissinger.

Israel receives billions of dollars of American taxpayers’ money each year. Under an existing 10-year aid agreement between Washington and Tel Aviv signed in 2007, USD 30 billion of American money is flowing to Israel.

The US’ annual military aid to Israel has been elevated from USD 2.4 billion to USD 3.1 billion through 2017 under the existing agreement.

Meanwhile, US and Israeli officials have discussed a surge in US military aid to Israel in a new aid package that would extend through 2027.

Notice, as the time goes on with each presidency, the list gets longer and longer, and the sentences to the criminals gets shorter and shorter. (end)
