Remember when resignation was closely associated with honourable surrender and not just another politically correct way to preserve the illusion of honour and, to a certain extent, respect?

Just as resignation, that above question is rhetorical in nature.

Re·sig·na·tion: sudden urge to spend more time with one’s family, despite perpetually having chosen career over all. This seemingly calculated decision often coincides with one facing trouble or having to take responsibility by answering allegations of serious offences committed, which were or are are about to be brought to light to the public.

“One”, meaning “I”, along with perhaps a considerable amount of Japanese nationals, would trust that Seppuku, and certainly not an official statement delivered to the media and/or board of directors, would reflect the absolute essence of resignation.

In contrast to that essence, most would say that the most memorable resignation in modern western civilization took place on August 9, 1974, as Richard Nixon becomes America’s Greatest Disgraced President.

Moving forward to our recent times, the spectrum of various titles and professions eligible for resignation is no longer reserved for men of state, leaders of nations and military men.

Beloved athletes, risen to god-like status, bare the same pseudo-responsibilities as one who is required to influence a nation of soon-to-be responsible members of our well-balanced society. Along came, and almost went, Lance Edward Armstrong (born Lance Edward Gunderson), whom had won the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times between 1999 and 2005.

resignation-armstrong-thusalways

In 2012, he was disqualified from all his results; thus, stripped from all his titles, since August 1998, for using and distributing performance-enhancing drugs and was banned from professional cycling for life.

Last June, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) charged Lance “serial cheat” Armstrong with having used illicit performance-enhancing drugs, and announced a lifetime ban from competition, which applies in all sports which follow the World Anti Doping Agency code.

Recently, he was set to compete in an US Masters swimming event, but then withdrew, as a result of the International Swimming Federation’s (Fina) pressure.

Re·sig·na·tion…avoiding the complete dissolution of your self-founded corporation/foundation.

From one discipline to another…in November of 2012, David Howell Petraeus, retired American military officer and public official, who also served as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), also resigned. Prior to his assuming the directorship of the CIA, Petraeus was a highly decorated four-star general, serving over 37 years in the United States Army.

resignation-patraeus-thusalways

Petraeus began an affair with Paula Broadwell, principal author of his biography in late 2011 , when he was no longer an active duty military officer. Petraeus reportedly ended the affair the following year, when he learned that Broadwell had been sending harassing emails to a longstanding family friend of the Petraeuses, Jill Kelley.

Mission accomplished.

In our modern times, highly decorated military men, resign offer affairs, and perhaps no longer over burying their nations, and others, under an avalanche of their inadequacies.

Re·sig·na·tion…keeping as much truth about Benghazi and the military industrial complex, hidden from civilians.

From military to its twin profession…politics!

Gérald Tremblay, businessman turned disgraced Canadian politician, served as mayor of Montreal for a decade until his resignation. This decision, coerced or not, necessary or not, was followed by allegations of corruption and financing the mafia, made at the Charbonneau Commission of Inquiry on the Awarding and Management of Public Contracts in the Construction Industry.

resignation-tremblay-thusalways

He was accused, at the Commission, by construction industry contractor Lino Zambito. The latter alledged that Tremblay’s party, Union Montreal, received a sum equivalent to 3% of the value of sewerage rehabilitation contracts awarded by the City of Montreal to a mafia-linked cartel.

Following these allegations, amongts others of similar nature, Tremblay announced that he would be taking a few days off. On November 5, 2012, Tremblay announced that he was resigning as mayor, and was leaving politics.

Re·sig·na·tion…bending under perpetual public outrage and furthering Omertà.

Gilles Vaillancourt is a former Canadian politician. He served as the mayor of Laval, Quebec, from June 8, 1989 until November 9, 2012. During this time Vaillancourt was also the leader of the Parti PRO des Lavallois.

resignation-vaillancourt-thusalways

As part of the same Commission, the Awarding and Management of Public Contracts in the Construction Industry and the Permanent Anti-Corruption Unit inquired and searched Vaillancourt’s residence for evidence of corruption.

On November 9, 2012, Vaillancourt resigned as mayor and denied all of the corruption allegations against him as his party dissolved.

Re·sig·na·tion…bending under perpetual public outrage and furthering Omertà…same as above…politicians, all the same n’est-ce pas?

From politics, to its close entity…economy! At this point, the military-politics duo is presenting itself as a full blown triplet set. The indefinite triangular axis of power some might say.

Ben Bernanke, an economist and currently chairman of the Federal Reserve, the central bank of the United States, since 2002.

Stop the press!

Before you initiate an email with the purpose of addressing my mistake, which will hopefully initiate my erratum, I am require to advise that I am fully aware that Bernanke is still active in his position, allowing the print of devalued currency at its usual healthy pace.

resignation-bernanke-thusalways-1

During his first term as Chairman, the Federal Reserve experienced its largest increase of power since its creation in 1913. Successor to Alan Greenspan, he will most likely step down from his position in January 2014.

He has been attacked for failing to foresee the financial crisis, for bailing out Wall Street, and, most recently, for injecting an additional $600 billion into the banking system to give the slow recovery a boost.

Re·sig·na·tion…stop the prints…a scandal of personal nature is in the works or perhaps even ready to be released at any time.

Who’s next?

– We shall see how this resignation trend will unfold. In these though economic times and omnipresent global conflicts, not only immunity is scarce but also the amount of backs left exposed and unscratched is exponentially increasing.

Where?

– Anywhere the chips may fall and everywhere desks can be cleared. Anywhere and everywhere.

“By the time I took my seat in the Gods, the opera was well into its final act”

– Barbara Covett, played by Dame Judi Dench, in Notes on a Scandal (2006)

Let’s go Camping

May 17, 2012

As the summer heat sneaks into Washington D.C. for its yearly reign, while our nation’s pockets are not as full as one would have planned for; austerity seems to be not only the necessary measure to adopt but also the new trend of the decade (hopefully not decades). The ones that aren’t privilege enough to summer in Cannes must find a cost-effective alternative. From ocean to ocean, the choice is ours. Many national parks are in need of tourists and road trips are always fun.

They say that location is everything, therefore, which camping grown is the most coveted in the United States? Somewhere in the Arizona desert? Perhaps Amish country in Pennsylvania or Ohio? Or even in Oregon or California’s State Parks?

Which camp site would meet the world leaders and celebrities standards? A place that would cater even to the paranoiacs, security would be provided by the US Navy and the US Marines. An”invitation only ” formula would only be natural.

Well folks, such location does exist. Although its exactitude is top-secret, it is in Catoctin Mount Park, Maryland, USA.

Pack your bags, we are going camping. Going camping at Camp David.

Formally known as the Naval Support Facility Thurmont, then Sangri-la (by F. D. Roosevelt), then known under its current name given by Eisenhower, in honor of his father and grandson, Camp. I mean David.

This historical gem is commonly known for Jimmy Carter’s Camp David Accord in 1978, between Anwar Al-Sadat of Egypt and Menachem Begin of Israel. Not only that Accord has provided an ease at Israel’s southern border, but also it granted all of them Nobel Peace Prices. When I say all I do mean just that. Eisenhower and FDR have also won Nobel Peace Prizes. Seems as this Camp David ground might just be blessed as it leaves its host with zen and serenity that has to be shared with others in need.

This year, President Barack Obama has decided to host the G8 Summit at Camp David. This decision is not based on a quest for serenity as he his already a Nobel Peace Laureate. The main reason would be as its original location, Chicago, is already hosting NATO’s summit on May 20th, right after this one. As protesters plan months in advance, why give them a two for one occasion to riot?

Another protester, somewhat indirectly, is Czar Vladimir Putin.

Putin stated that he will not be able to attend as he needs to finalize his duties as Russia’ second-time president, by approving cabinet nominations. A task that is, according to Putin, to sensitive for the former president, now second-time prime minister, Medvedev. Therefore, Medvedev will have to suffice for this year.

Or perhaps the real reason is that Putin’s survivalist camping skills are too advanced for these amateurs. He might just find it more exciting and challenging to camp with his fellow North Korean, Syrian, Chinese and Venezuelan scouts.

Can Cameron do that? No he cannot.

Can Harper do that? No he cannot.

Can Merkel do that? Actually, maybe, surprisingly she can do anything!

Can Hollande do that? No he cannot.

Can Monti do that? No he cannot.

Can Medvedev do that? Of course, he is KGB too. But not as well as I can.

From Russia with Love

Now if this doesn’t want to make you consider enrolling your children in KGB camp instead of scouting, I don’t know what will.

As for the rest of the G8 scouts, they will be present, as usual, at the summit. France will bring personal care products, sunscreen and picnic baskets. Germany will take care of bringing the hammer, axe, lanterns, ropes and knives. Italy will bring beverages, food and water. Japan will bring tents, trash bags, towels and sleeping bags. The U.K. will bring rain boots, rain coats, tea, coffee and fishing gear. And Canada will bring firewood, warm blankets, marshmallows, hot chocolate and first aid kits.

On the new financially relevant side of the world, as BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and the O5, also known as the Plus 5 ( Brazil, India, China, Mexico and South Africa) are closer and closer to become the economic powers.

As Putin will not attend Obama’s Camping Party, Obama has decided to return the favor and not attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Conference (APEC) this fall, in Russia.

And Obama’s reason for not attending? Let’s just say that he has decisions to make in regards of his re-electoral campaign. These decisions are too sensitive for Joe Biden to assist.

In the meantime … From Russia with Love.

“I’m Chiquita banana and I’ve come to say
Bananas have to ripen in a certain way
When they are fleck’d with brown and have a golden hue
Bananas taste the best and are best for you
You can put them in a salad
You can put them in a pie-aye
Any way you want to eat them – It’s impossible to beat them
But, bananas like the climate of the very, very tropical equator
So you should never put bananas in the refrigerator.”

– Words and Music by Montgomery, Mackenzie, and Wirges.

We should never put bananas in … the hands of Congress and White House Officials either.

Chiquita Brands International Inc, an American producer and distributor of mainly bananas, was founded in 1871. In 1998, the Cincinnati Enquirer published Chiquita Secrets Revealed, which accused the company of exploitation of workers on plantations, pollution, drug trafficking, bribing, land grabbing and other misdeeds.

Chiquita denied all the allegations, and sued after it was revealed that one of the reporters had repeatedly hacked into Chiquita’s voice-mail system. Therefore, an apology was published and the company was paid a mulch-million-dollar settlement. Let’s not jump to conclusion and automatically assume that the big bad multinational wolf must have done it all and successfully cashed out of court, as most of them do.

Right after, a Fair Trade movement counterattacked, by forming an alliance of social activists targeting the banana industry, specifically Chiquita. Down with corporations! Encourage small farmers!

As a result of this pressure, Chiquita partnered with the Rainforest Alliance, an environmental group dedicated to preserving the rainforest, and made major reforms in the way they plant and protect their bananas, especially in the use of pesticides.

It is results like these that keep us hoping and trying to make things right. Although 1998 doesn’t seem that far ago, times have changed more than we think. Corporations, not governments, are holding our fates in their hands for the sake of wealth and power.

Monsanto, created 30 years after Chiquita, perhaps abides by the same code of conduct as Chiquita. Even their Websites are incredibly similar not only in design but also in content and style. After exploring their sites, one is left lead to think that they are both advocate of social reform and the welfare of human kind. They are proud of making a difference.

Making a difference they do! In 2007, Chiquita was fined $25 million for having ties to Right-Wing and Left-Wing Colombian paramilitary groups which are all the U.S. State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations. World domination is easiest when merging both sides on your payroll.

They paid approximately $2 million to the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC) which is right-winged, in exchange for protection in Colombia. In addition, brides were also made to the left-winged Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), as well as the National Liberation Army (ELN).

Furthermore, that same year, 173 family members of victims of militia filed a lawsuit against Chiquita. If lost, it may put Chiquita out of business. Terry Collingsworth, a lawyer with International Rights Advocates who is involved with the multimillion dollar litigation, said: “This is a landmark case, maybe the biggest terrorism case in history. In terms of casualties, it’s the size of three World Trade Center attacks.”

Justice will prevail right? Not sure…

Photobucket

On a side note, I often reply “Not sure” to my statements for the idealists out there that still believe in Utopia and are quick to associate people with my points of view as overzealous, pessimistic and even extreme. For some reason, saying “not sure” appeases them. It is sweeter to their ears than “No”. “No, children, justice will not prevail!” is too strong of a statement for some fragile minds protected by bubbles.

As you know, I approach all my articles in a very sarcastic but realistic manner. Therefore, I will tell you the following:

Michael Taylor, responsible for introducing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) into food supply without appropriate testing, was just appointed by the Obama administration, senior advisor to the commissioner of the FDA. Before that he was one of Monsanto’s attorney, Vice President and chief lobbyist. When questioned, the White House refused to reveal relationships with Monsanto.

Also, in the 2007 case that I was referring to earlier, the defense lawyer for Chiquita Brands international was Eric Holder. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, he has been promoted by the Obama Administration to U.S. Attorney General.

Again, Justice will prevail right? ….

Photobucket

Bananas or not, in the meantime, let the bees do their work and pollinate as they were created to do. If it weren’t bananas, it would have been something else. Something else indeed … such as bees themselves!

Yes, Chiquita is to bananas as Monsanto is to … almost everything. However, for now, let’s just focus on bees. Monsanto’s bio engineered compounds have been killing off bees as they are highly toxic. In an effort to replace them, why not make them better as Monsanto knows how to do best. Hybrid bees have been created and they are bigger, better and work harder. Better for all you might think? Think again, they were designed only to pollinate Monsanto crops.

They are so effective that Monsanto has no time to let their toxins destroy nature. They would benefit by taking the destruction into their own hands. Which they have. Why just settle for the title of creator? Might as well seize the title of destroyer one as well. Once their job is done, what will pollinate your crops, gardens and even flowers?

Only Monsanto-engineered creatures will have the ability to proceed.

Photobucket

Did you know that bees communicate with each other with pheromones? When in danger, they release this compound, which smells exactly like bananas, in order to warn others.

In fact, introducing a ripe banana in their environment will create chaos and terror, such as yelling “terrorist” in an NRA meeting.

Or yelling __________ in a Monsanto-Chiquita White House meeting.

From accomplished chess player, to Minister of Finance, to Managing Director and Chairman of the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund, to Socialist Party politician, to alleged sexual predator, to vice ring Pimp.

Indeed, Strauss-Kahn has to respond, once again, to accusations, sexual in nature. This time, related to his involvement in hiring prostitutes and taking part in sex parties in Paris and Washington D.C.

In May 2011, Nafissatou Diallo, a hotel maid, accused DSK of sexually assaulting her. His semen was found on the maid’s shirt. DSK admitted to inappropriate sexual behavior with Diallo but insisted that violence was never involved. He pleaded not guilty. The following month, Diallo’s credibility was put in question as her statements diverged. Therefore, his culpability could no longer be established beyond reasonable doubt.

He then returned to France as a hero who survived the intrusive American Media, which painted him as a sexual predator, and overcame the flawed American Justice System. Another accomplishment to be proud of, another exploit that his political campaign could use as these sorts of situation would play for one and not against one in France. Regardless of the fact that prostitution is legal in France, the French not only are tolerant but also embrace sexual prowesses, leader or not. François Mitterrand is still one of France’s most beloved president, despite the many scandals.

DSK would have officially ran against Nicolas Sarkozy. The preliminary polls indicated an undisputed advantage for DSK. His downfall would mean and did lead to Sarkozy’s survival and presidential win.

However, until this day, more than half of the French population and almost three-quarter of their socialists believe that he was the victim of a plot. But yet again, they now almost all despise Sarkozy.

As the French elections are approaching, another socialist is ready to face Sarkozy: François Hollande. Leftists tend to be unpopular to say the least, despite the poor state of Europe’s economical state. But on the other hand, it is in times like these that the virtues of capitalism are promoted and emphasized in order to keep everyone’s focus unrattled.

I am not too familiar with François Hollande’s nature; but, if you are amongst the French “conspiracy theorists”, if Hollande was morally reproachable in any way, it would have been already publicized. Unless, his time in the spotlight has not come yet.

Angela Merkel’s patronage will be yet again be introduce via the French-German border. How dare anyone remotely think of severing Merkozy !?!

Thus, a few days ago, DSK, a left-leaning socialist, was charged with aggravated pimping. He denies the charges and affirms that he was unaware that these women were prostitutes and did not pay them, especially not with corporate funds. Nevertheless, he proudly flaunted his “healthy” sexual appetite.

If found guilty, he could face up to 20 years in prison and order to pay €3 million in fines.

In addition, Strauss-Kahn’s civil case filed by Diallo will proceed in New York.

It is difficult to think that Dominique Strauss-Kahn was once France’s would-be President. Or is it?

In 2011, before his first arrest in the United States, Dominique Strauss-Kahn stated that the three biggest hurdles in his campaign to become president of France are money, women and being a Jewish.

No matter the outcome of his trials, one thing is clear, he is guilty of bluntness. Some might even add that he is guilty of leaning to far to the left. Nevertheless, his statement could be, and in my opinion is, applicable to the better part of our World Leaders.

The Canadians are usually discrete and respectful.

The Americans always rush to volunteer as moral authority.

The French and Italians are _______________ .

“Yes you Can … control yourselves Gentlemen Statesmen,
learn from us American Puritans.
We take our marriage vows seriously. In God We Trust.”
– President Barack Obama (unofficial quote)

Well maybe not… dearly beloved American Presidents. Them too Socialists, Democratic Socialists by the way.

Thus Always …

…To Genius.

George Lucas, a Science Fiction pioneer, just as Jules Verne was, would agree with the fact that Sci-Fi is anything but figments of our imagination. It is only a precursor of things to come.

Star Wars films depicted various types of drones. The more impressive ones were massive self-piloting star ships controlled by a module. Lucas made us dream and contemplate a world in which Darth Vader would not perpetually rule the universe.

In our world and our time, Drones (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), which were experimentally manufactured in 1916, were first armed in order to attempt to kill Osama bin Laden.

They were and still are proven to be unreliable due to the fact that their target abilities are far from surgical precision, they are unstable when flying in less than perfect weather and they crash very often. In addition, loss of communication with these drones is one of the many technical issues that lead to their sub par performance. After consideration, President Clinton decided to shut down the project.

Later on, Bush reopened the project, refinanced it and made used of these drones 44 times, despite the acknowledgement of the performance reports. The attacks evidently lead to casualties; bodies were often hidden and buried by troops on the ground.

However, for now, most drones aren’t exploited for military purpose. They are mostly used for surveillance, reconnaissance, news reporting, border patrolling, intelligence and inspection.

As such, most industrialized countries such as China, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, India, Canada, Australia, Pakistan, Japan and Brazil do “harvest” drones. Some of the super drones have even been baptized. Israel named theirs Heron; the United States upgraded their Predator with the Avenger; and, last but not least, Iran named theirs Karrar, which is Farsi for Striker. President Ahmadinejad infamously nicknamed his Persian Menace: the Ambassador of Death.

Episode X : The Persian Menace

Do not let the Ambassador of Death mislead you into being alarmed. The Ambassador of Death is not Darth Vader’s vehicle of choice. This drone is intended for, and I quote: “Peace and Friendship“. Logically, why should we be nervous over Iran since they have not initiated any attack towards any other country in over 200 years? And yes, the Persian Gulf War has been taken in consideration when making that statement. But no, I chose not to take the Iran hostage crisis in consideration.

That being said, it evidently is not the case when shifting our attention towards the previously mentioned pro-drone countries. Over 239 drone strikes were ordered under the Obama administration. Many of these attacks were carried out against the advice of U.S. Officials and Diplomats. In fact, that tendency has led the Obama Administration of being responsible for at least 85% of drone strikes around the world, particularly in Pakistan.

This is the same Obama that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Even then, his addition seemed unsuited and undeserved, when one remembers past laureates such as Desmond Tutu, Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa, Nelson Mandela, Kofi Annan and Jimmy Carter. Nevertheless, the Obama devotees might hide behind the ideology that peace cannot exist nor be implemented without war.

As mentioned in a previous article of mine, the five countries (United Kingdom, United States, France, Russia and China) that have secured permanent United Nation seats are also the top global arm dealers. These same countries have been accusing Iran of secretly building nuclear weapons and pressuring them to halt their nuclear program.

The classic allies turning into foes pattern … It is important to understand or remember that the U.S. did not only assist but also coordinated the launch of the Iranian Nuclear Program in the 50s. This program was maintained for decades, until the 1979 revolution.

This support was even symbolized and categorized as the “Atoms for Peace” Program, implemented in 1953 by Eisenhower. Let’s acknowledge that a program would not be complete without an appropriate inaugural speech. And where else but at the United Nation General Assembly can a prestigious one take place? In this case, the cleverly named “Atoms for Peace” speech quickly followed Eisenhower’s “Chance for Peace” speech.

All this backing did result in the inception of Iran’s first nuclear power plant, which was completed and activated thanks to Russian assistance, in 2011.

The irony! The Atoms for Peace Program’s main principle was to reassure the world during the Cold War (between 1945 and 1991). Sarcastically, the Russians presided over its closing ceremony.

As a counter attack, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board, nations and multinational entities officially reprimanded and sanctioned Iran. This judgment was internationally supported by detailed tangible and evidence. The Iranian authorities, or should I say THE Iranian Authority, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Hosseini khamenei, has not yet been successfully coerced by the international pressure. The U.N. inspectors can come and go as often as necessary, it’s all in good faith, from both parties. Remember, it’s all about Peace and Friendship.

“Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane… No, it’s a drone!”

The Empire Will Strike Back. It is just a question of which Empire will strike first.

Guess who’s building nuclear power plants now?

Election Carnival Season has arrived.

On Mardi Gras (French for “Fat Tuesday”), Christians would eat rich fatty foods before the beginning of Lent season, which begins on Ash Wednesday. Lent is a reminder of one’s religion obligations, mainly penitence. Hence, the reason why traditional Christians refer to Mardis Gras as “Shrove Tuesday”. This period of abstinence lasts 47 days, until Easter Sunday, which represents the Christ’s resurrection.

The agnostics tend to take part of popular practices associated with celebrations, which includes dancing, wearing masks and costumes and participating in parades.

Speaking of celebrations, I still remember 2009 as it was yesterday, when President Barack Obama assumed office. The spirit of the American people resurrected with hope and optimism in dark times as if they were witnessing the second coming of Christ: “Yes, We Can”. Four years passed by and it is a whole new day filled with the same old …

Things got better? Not sure. Things got worse? Not sure either. All we know is that most of us are left feeling torn between sustaining hope in the Obama administration and just giving up on the whole political system. The rest of us might just be in plain old denial; still wearing our now faded and washed out “Obama for President” t-shirt that now reads “bama side”. Yes, as in “by my side”. That’s right, every step of the way, that is where we were: by his side. Lately, I am no longer sure where I now stand.

This dilemma is familiar to believers of any religion as we tend to be torn between our holy scriptures and the actual existence of any divine being. As we wait for the Second Advent of Jesus of Nazareth, which could coincide with the presidential election in the United States, provided that Obama wins, we wear our rosaries around our necks and keep our bibles close by.

We will patiently wait 245 days for Tuesday November 6, 2012, to come around. Obama of Honolulu could rise again. But rise from where? Rise towards where? … Not sure either.

As the idealists debate with the pragmatists, let’s pause for a moment and pay attention to what currently matters. Who will win the primary election on this Super Tuesday?

Super Tuesday has been taking place for almost four decades. It refers to a Tuesday in February or March of a presidential election year, when the greatest number of states hold primary elections to select delegates to national conventions, at which each party’s presidential candidates are officially nominated. These candidates seeking the presidency must do well on this day to secure their party’s nomination.

This year, these republicans; Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich, campaign and preach to get as close as they can to the Promise Land.

As election season begins, let’s allow them to put their masks on, and off, before initiating their pseudo penitence, while awaiting their canonization.

While we are left under the impression that we are taking actual sides, voting for one party over another, believing in certain promises and shutting down other ideologies, we fail to remember the essence of belief. There is only one fundamental core, sedentary in Washington, which embodies all: Republican or Democrat; aristocrat or working class, Black or White, Catholic or Protestant … Evil or Good. Same difference.

The Devil is after all considered to be an angel who was condemned to the Lake of Fire after rebelling against God.

How art thou fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down
to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

– Isaiah 14:12 (Holy Bible, King James Version)

“Yes We Can! ”

– Barack Hussein Obama II
