    ALL presidencies, Presidents, since Regan, for sure, are an illusion. The person you see, especially when they are campaigning for election,  is not the person they are, but it is what a team of people put together and present to the American people to elect. That doesn't mean it's true or factual, it is just "marketing".

    Pls correct me if I am wrong, but there are people like Jackson, Kennedy and Lincoln who tried to fix the problem. As far as I know, Jackson was relatively successful, but the later two failed and were killed by the oligarchs behind the scence.

    And that is the reason why American media usually demonized Jackson because he tried so hard to crush the oligarchs.

    Just my 2 cents. pwnd

    What is the US planning in Azerbaijan with the sanctions? I thought Azerbaijan was friendly with the US, so why the sanctions?

    This is a clear coercion attempt on the current regime.  The current regime was in Washington's pocket or so it seemed but
    has left the reservation.  The stellar intellects in Washington (and elsewhere) think they can pressure them back into
    conformity.  In reality, they can lose it all.

    Sanctions are one of their oldest and most favourite controls.

    US and UK sanctions which pretty much amounted to a blockade of Japan in the late 1930s led to Japan first expanding north towards Siberian oil where they were stopped and Khakalin Gol by Zhukov, so they turned south to the Pacific starting the Pacific War of WWII.

    Ironically now the attack on Pearl Harbour if it happened today would be described by the Bush family as pre-emptive self defence...

    so what are your opinions for Obama's presidency now that we enter in its final year?

    In a metro station in Athens i had a discussion with an American visitor and he told me that he considers him the president from 70s to today (that guy was obvious a liberal and pro-Democratic party)

    Obama is a trash talking liar dirtbag. His one statement that Kosovo had a UN supervised referendum on secession from Serbia
    sums up his level quite well. Nixon was squeaky clean compared to Obama. Nixon's transgressions during the Watergate scandal
    are nothing in comparison to Obama's NSA police state utopia. Funny how back in the 1970s Nixon got ousted from office over
    something so small by comparison. I guess Obama reflects the state of US society. It really has degenerated into a totalitarian
    toilet. But not the cheesy one from Orwell's 1984 but a more subtle one like Huxley's Brave New World. Americans think they
    are the freest and the best on the planet. Their egos are being stroked with correctly tuned propaganda that affirms their
    self-declared superiority. And in true totalitarian society fashion they cannot accept dissenting viewpoints that reflect reality.

    President Obama announces executive action on gun control.

    President Obama formally announced plans to expand background checks to buy guns and impose other restrictions on firearms through executive action. The executive order bypasses Congress, further feeding sentiments about the administration’s overreach.

    Amen, brother. You put it so much better than I did. I watched an hour of his speech last night and thought: "There's a sucker born every minute." Edited to add: what he was doing last night was politicking for the Democrats running for election!

    US President Obama has stated in his last State of the Union that the US government helps "Ukraine defend its democracy," and "that strengthens the international order." My research shows that, in fact, the US government supported a violent overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine by an alliance of oligarchic and far right organizations, which resorted to the massacre of the Maidan protesters and the police in order to seize power. As a result of this undemocratic transition, Ukraine moved from semi-democratic/semi-authoritarian towards largely authoritarian system with some vestiges of democracy remaining. This overthrow of the relatively pro-Russian government in Ukraine with help of the Maidan massacre was a tipping point in the conflict in Ukraine and in the conflict between the West and Russia over Ukraine that escalated into the civil war in Donbas, the Russian military interventions in Crimea and Donbas, and the annexation of Crimea by Russia. But it is amazing that so many intelligent people prefer to believe rhetoric of Western politicians concerning the conflict in Ukraine and that the Western media does not question their governments policy towards Ukraine. https://medium.com/…/president-obama-s-2016-state-of-the-un… Obama in his actual speech also said incorrectly that "Russia is pouring resources to prop up Ukraine" and then called Ukraine, which is a US client state, a Russian client state. http://ukrainian.voanews.com/…/ukraina-pro-sta…/3142877.html

    futher more, his TPP

    A recent study finds the TPP would spell a pay cut for all but the richest 10 percent of Americans by exacerbating income inequality, as past trade deals have done. That would contradict Obama’s 2015 SOTU inequality reduction goal. Macroeconomic theory predicts if Americans face more competition from workers in Vietnam who make less than 65 cents/hour, wages will be pushed down. Sixty percent of manufacturing workers losing jobs to trade who find reemployment face pay cuts, with one in three losing more than 20 percent, per U.S. DoL data. There is academic consensus trade has contributed to the major rise in inequality.

    Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Facts and Figures for SOTU Prep
    January 13, 2016   Public Citizen

    http://economyincrisis.org/content/trans-pacific-partnership-tpp-facts-and-figures-for-sotu-prep

    President Barack Obama is expected to prioritize the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in his State of the Union address. The TPP text was finally released in November after seven years of secretive talks during which this Washington Post infographic shows 500 U.S. trade advisors representing corporate interests had special access. Congress, the public and press were shut out. Now everyone can read the controversial deal that could undermine many landmark achievements of Obama’s presidency and thus his legacy on jobs and economic recovery, climate, healthcare access, gay equality, financial reform, the U.S. auto industry rescue and more. Only six of the TPP’s 30 chapters deal with traditional trade matters. As this recent New Yorker piece describes, the rest require limits on food, financial and other regulations, provide drug firms new monopolies and expand the contentious investor-state dispute settlement system.

    Zero U.S. Economic Growth from TPP:

    The Department of Agriculture issued the administration’s only major study on TPP’s economic impact and found it would result in 0.00% increased U.S. growth if all tariffs on all products were eliminated, which did not occur. The United States already has free trade deals in place with Canada, Mexico, Peru, Australia, Chile, and Singapore, which collectively represent over 80 percent of the trade counted in the oft-touted line about the TPP covering 40 percent of world trade. Even the major pro-TPP study found that in 2025 U.S. growth rates only would be .4 percent higher with TPP in effect – even using a model that assumed full employment and no increased income inequality. Yet, since the 1940s, standard economic theory has held that trade liberalization is likely to increase inequality in developed countries like the United States.

    Increased Income Inequality:

    A recent study finds the TPP would spell a pay cut for all but the richest 10 percent of Americans by exacerbating income inequality, as past trade deals have done. That would contradict Obama’s 2015 SOTU inequality reduction goal. Macroeconomic theory predicts if Americans face more competition from workers in Vietnam who make less than 65 cents/hour, wages will be pushed down. Sixty percent of manufacturing workers losing jobs to trade who find reemployment face pay cuts, with one in three losing more than 20 percent, per U.S. DoL data. There is academic consensus trade has contributed to the major rise in inequality.

    American Jobs at Risk:

    The TPP includes rules that make it cheaper and less risky to offshore U.S. jobs to low wage nations. The pro-free trade Cato Institute calls these investor protections a subsidy on offshoring. The administration stopped claiming the TPP would create jobs after a four Pinocchio rating by the Washington Post fact checker. Since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), more than 57,000 U.S. manufacturing facilities have closed and five million U.S. manufacturing jobs–one in four–were lost with more than 875,000 U.S. workers certified under just one narrow U.S. Department of Labor program.

    Russians Pay Tribute to America's Favorite Nobel Peace Prize Winner
    Obama's presidency - Page 2 QrIevfR
    Early this morning in Moscow, a 30-foot flag featuring Barack Obama was raised to the top floor of a building across from the U.S. Embassy. In blood red letters, the word “KILLER” is stamped beneath the face of the president.

    The evening before, a laser display projected “Obama Killer #1” onto the U.S. Embassy itself.


    The party responsible for such anti-American productions is the Moscow-based “Glavplakat” art society, who issued a statement saying the banner was in response to the “U.S. Government’s plans to invade the territory of yet another sovereign state.”

    “The word ‘killer’ defines the 44th U.S. President, and is given to him because of his decision to send the infamous 101st Airborne Division into the Syrian conflict,” states Glavplakat. “Let’s keep in mind that this division carried out practically every U.S. military invasion in the last decade.”

    Just wait for them to squeal about that.... it is of course OK for the west to paint Putin as a dictator, KGB agent, thief, murderer and invader, but you can't do that to western leaders... it is just unamerican.

    You have to respect western leaders... no reason for that, you just have to.
