Are Latinos ditching the Democrats? Don't believe the hype

As the 2014 midterm elections approach, some national political observers are maintaining that Latino voters are pulling away from the Democratic Party. There's only one problem with this sweeping conclusion — it's practically meaningless.

نبوؤة نوسترداموس بــ مرسي .!!
يوليو 3, 2013

ترددت مؤخرا نبوءة نوستراداموس القديمة، والتي تخبر بأن الرئيس مرسي سيتحول لأشلاء؛ لأنه يحمل “ختم الشيطان” في جرح غائر برأسه، وهو الأمر الذي جعل أوباما يتهرب دائما من لقائه.
تردد أن النبوءة عمرها 500 عام، وتقول لرجل يقال إنه عاش غامضًا في أوربا وكان له موهبة خارقة في التنبؤ بالمستقبل، حتى صار أشهر العرافين وقارئي الطالع في العالم أجمع، إنه “نوستراداموس”.. وكانت ميزة هذا الرجل أنه لا يكتب تنبؤاته بشكل صريح، بل على شكل رباعيات وأبيات شعر يشير فيها إلى ما يقرؤه مما بين السطور.
وقد تنبأ نوستراداموس بمئات النبوءات التي تحققت بالفعل كما رواها حتى أنه ذكر أسماء العديد من القادة الذين غيروا وجه التاريخ وحدد أماكن حدوث الأحداث الكبرى في العالم، مسميًا كل مكان باسمه الذي يطلق عليه وقت حدوث هذه النبوءة.
إذ تنبأ بصعود الدولة العثمانية وسقوطها، واجتياح الإنجليز للعالم وانحسارهم، وصولًا إلى الحربين العالميتين الأولى والثانية وأسماء أشهر قادتها مثل هتلر وموسوليني وغيرهما، وكذلك الهجوم على برجي التجارة العالمي في نيويورك 11 سبتمبر وحتى اليوم، والغريب أن نبوءات الرجل لا تزال تتحقق في كل لحظة وكل مكان.
ومن أكبر المختصين في تحليل نبوءات نوستراداموس، هو العراف الأمريكي “جون هوج”، الذي فسر العديد من الأبيات الشعرية التي وضعها نوستراداموس وتحققت جميع تفسيراته لهذه التنبؤات.
والغريب، فيما يخص مصر، أن جون هوج تنبأ أثناء الانتخابات الرئاسية بفوز محمد مرسي رغم ضآلة فرصته في الفوز، وعدم وجود أي مؤشرات تجعله يدخل دورة الإعادة، لكن “هوج” خرج في حالة من الاضطراب الشديد على قناة “فوكس نيوز” قائلا: “سيفوز هذا الرجل…. فالشيطان يقف خلفه بكل أبناءه !!”.
وأضاف “هوج” وكأنه متأكد تمامًا مما يقول: “هذا الرجل سيفوز حتى لو لم يعطه أحد صوته، فإن اسمه ورد في نبوءة عنه، وهذه النبوءة موجودة أيضًا لدى بابا الكنيسة الأرثوذكسية في مصر!!”
وبعدها خرج أحد الصحفيين الفرنسيين ليعلن في صحيفة “لو فيجارو” أن لديه معلومات مؤكدة من مصر تؤكد أن محمد مرسي هو الذي سيفوز في سباق الرئاسة، وكان ذلك في الوقت الذي كانت فيه دورة الإعادة ما زالت في منتصفها، وقد انزعجت الرئاسة الفرنسية كثيرًا من هذا الخبر خاصة في ظل عدم تأكدها من نوايا الإخوان المسلمين حال تولوا الحكم في مصر، وعندما سُئل الصحفي الفرنسي عن مصدر هذه المعلومات قال: “إنه بالإضافة إلى ما يتضح من استقراء الأحداث، فقد تأكدت لديه بعد سماعه ما قاله جون هوج”.
الأكثر غرابة أنه بعد تحقق النبوءة وفوز محمد مرسي بالمنصب، قام هوج بإعادة تفسير نبوءات نوستراداموس من جديد بتركيز أكبر مما سبق، وكأنه يحاول التنبؤ بما سيحدث يوميا، وكانت أكثر من اهتم بكلام هوج وتفسيراته لنبوءات نوستراداموس وكالة المخابرات المركزية الأمريكية الـ”سي آي إيه”.
الـ”سي آي إيه” تهتم أحيانا بما وراء الطبيعة، فظلت تهتم بما يقوله هوج وبكل جديد يعلن عنه في الشأن المصري، وأبرمت اتفاقا مع هوج بمتابعة الشأن المصري فقط، دون أي بلد آخر، وقد ذكر هوج للمخابرات المركزية عندما أراد باراك أوباما استضافة محمد مرسي في الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية، ذكر هوج أنه يحمل (ختم الشيطان).. فقدمت المخابرات تقريرًا لباراك أوباما تقترح فيه على أوباما بعدم مقابلة مرسي مرة أخرى، سواء داخل أمريكا أو خارجها، وقالت في تقريرها إن السبب وراء ذلك “أنه يحمل ختم الشيطان”!! وذلك ما جعل أوباما يرفض توجيه الدعوه لمرسي للولايات المتحدة منذ العام الماضي وحتى الآن، كما رفض أن يمر على مصر في زيارته الأخيرة لإسرائيل.
أما “ختم الشيطان” الذي ذكره هوج أنه على شكل جرح غائر ناتج من جراحة في رأس مرسي، لكن المهم في الأمر أن هذا الجرح على شكل حرف “V” بالإنجليزية، وأكد هوج لـ “سي آي إيه” أن عمليات الجراحة بالمخ لا تترك مثل ذلك الأثر، وبالفعل قدمت المخابرات المركزية تقريرًا لجراح أمريكي عن الأمر والذي أكد كلام هوج، وكان ذلك كافيا بالنسبة لأوباما لكي يتجنب لقاء مرسي أثناء تواجده بالشرق الأوسط.. كما رفع اسمه من دعوات زعماء العالم لزيارة الولايات المتحدة !!
ويفسر هوج المزيد من نبوءات نوستراداموس ويطابق التاريخ عند نوستراداموس بالتاريخ الميلادي الحالي وقد خرج بما يعد أكثر النبوءات صدمة بالنسبة لمصر والمصريين.
فقال جون هوج إن اسم “محمد مرسي” مذكور حرفي في نبوءات نوستراداموس، وذلك باعتباره الملك الذي “يغلق دائرة القدر”.
حيث وجد اسم “Morsee” مكتوبا نصا في نبوءات نوستراداموس، وهو الملك الذي له مواصفات معينة، فيقول نوستراداموس إن هذا الملك سوف يكون ثالث من يحمل اسم “محمد” بالتتالي دون أن يفصل بين من حملوا الاسم ملك آخر من ملوك مصر، وأن هذا الملك الثالث الذي يحمل اسم محمد سيحمل ضمن اسمه بالكامل اسم “Morsee”، ليؤكد هوج أن هذه النبوءات معلومة للكهنة المسيحيين في مصر!!
ويضيف هوج أن هذا الملك من صفاته أنه لا يملك أن يتحدث من تلقاء نفسه، فشيطانه يتحدث بدلًا منه بل ويعاقبه بآلام مبرحة في رأسه كلما حاول الحديث من تلقاء ذاته!!
والغريب في الأمر أن حسابات التواريخ التي قام بها هوج بحسب التواريخ والحسابات الخوارزمية، تحدد نبوءة نوستراداموس بالعام الحالي 2013، الذي لن ينتهي قبل أن يخرج هذا الملك من عرش مصر ليكون أقصر حكام مصر عمرًا، ويضيف هوج في تفسيره للنبوءة أن نزوله عن الحكم لن يكون هادئًا، فجسده سيتمزق بشكل كبير حتى أنه سيستعصي على المصريين تجميع أشلائه !!
وسيفر رفاقه وأتباعه إلى الجبال شرق مصر ليطاردهم المصريون حتى يخرجوا من الدائرة التي يتواجد بها لعنتهم الأبدية وهي كل الحدود المصرية.
وتقول النبؤة إن هذه الأيام ستشهد “أياما من الدم والنار”.. وهي تشبه آلام الولادة الجديدة أو تعميدًا لمصر لتخرج بعده من حال سيئ إلى حال مغاير تمامًا!! وانتهت نبوءة نوستراداموس لكن هل سيتحقق ما يقال؟!.. لا أحد يعلم.

Prophecy Nustrdamos b Morsi. !!
July 3, 2013

Recently hesitated ancient prophecy of Nostradamus, which tells that President Mursi will turn to shreds; it carries the "Seal of Satan" in his head wound, which would make Obama always evades meeting.
Frequency that prophecy 500 years old, and she says to a man who is said to have lived obscure in Europe and was his uncanny knack for predicting the future, until he became months, fortune tellers and readers horoscope in the whole world, that "Nostradamus" .. It was this man advantage that it does not write his predictions explicitly, but in the form of quartets and verses referring to what we read between the lines than.
Nostradamus has predicted hundreds of prophecies that have already been achieved as told even mentioned that many of the leaders who changed the face of history and the names of places identified the occurrence of major events in the world, naming his name all over the place which is called the time of this prophecy occurs.
It predicted the rise of the Ottoman Empire and its fall, and the invasion of the British to the world and Anhsarhm, right down to the First and Second World Wars and the names of the famous leaders such as Hitler and Mussolini, and others, as well as the attack on the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York September 11, and even today, strange that the prophecies of the man is still realized in every moment and every place.
One of the biggest specialists in the prophecies of Nostradamus analysis, the US is the fortune-teller, "John Hogg", which was interpreted by many poetic verses set by Nostradamus and verified explanations for all these predictions.
Strangely enough, with respect to Egypt, John Hogg predicted during the presidential election victory of Mohamed Morsi, despite scant chance of winning, and the absence of any indicators make it enters the return cycle, but "Hogg" came out in the case of severe turbulence on the channel "Fox News Sunday," saying: "this guy will win .... The devil behind him all his children !! ".
He added, "Hogg" like quite sure what to say: "This man will win even if they did not give him a voice, the name mentioned in the prophecy about him, and this prophecy is also found at the door of the Orthodox Church in Egypt !!"
Then came one of the French journalists to announce in the newspaper "Le Figaro" that has proven Egypt information confirming that Mohamed Morsi is the one who will win the presidential race, and that was at a time when the return cycle was still in the middle of it, and the French were upset presidential much of this news, especially in light of the intentions of not being sure if the Muslim Brotherhood took power in Egypt, and when a French journalist asked about the source of this information, said: "It is in addition to what is clear from the extrapolation of the events, has confirmed he has yet to hear what was said by John Hogg."
Most unusual that after the check prophecy and win Mohamed Morsi, the job, the Hoge re-interpretation of the prophecies of Nostradamus again more focused than ever, like trying to predict what will happen every day, and was more than interested in the words of Hogg and his interpretations of the prophecies of Nostradamus and the CIA the "CIA" .
The "CIA" sometimes bother including metaphysics, remained interested in what Hogg says, and each new announced in Egyptian affairs, and entered into an agreement with Hogg follow-up only Egyptian affairs, without any other country, has said Hogg CIA when Barack Obama wanted to host Mohammed Mursi in the United States, Hogg said he holds (seal the devil) .. Providing the intelligence report to Barack Obama proposing to Obama not Morsy interview again, both within the United States or abroad, and said in its report that the reason behind it, "it carries the seal of Satan" !! That is what made Obama refuses to extend an invitation to Mursi to the United States since last year and so far, also refused to pass on Egypt in his recent visit to Israel.
The "seal of Satan" mentioned by Hogg it in the form of wound resulting from surgery in the head Morsi, but the important thing is that this wound in the form of the letter "V" in English, said Hogg's "CIA" that surgery operations of the brain does not leave such that impact, and indeed the CIA submitted a report to the US surgeon about it and who confirmed the words of Hogg, and that was enough for Obama to avoid meeting Mursi while he was in the Middle East .. also lifted its name from the calls for world leaders to visit the United States !!
Hogg explains more of the prophecies of Nostradamus and corresponds to the date when the current Gregorian date Nostradamus has emerged as a shock is more prophecies for Egypt and the Egyptians.
John Hogg said that the name "Mohammed Morsi," stated verbatim in the prophecies of Nostradamus, and that as a king who "closes the circle of fate."
Where he found the name "Morsee" text written in the prophecies of Nostradamus, a king who has certain specifications, Nostradamus says that this will be the third king of the bears the name "Muhammad" consecutively without separating carried the name of another king of the kings of Egypt, and that the King the third, which bears the name of Mohammed will carry within his full name, the name "Morsee", to emphasize that these prophecies Hogg information Christian priests in Egypt !!
Hogg adds that this King of the qualities that he does not have to speak on his own, Vhitanh speaks instead of him and punish him but excruciating pain in his head whenever tried to talk of its own !!
The strange thing is that the accounts of dates by Hogg, according to dates and accounts algorithm, define prophecy of Nostradamus current year 2013, which will not end before the King comes out of the throne of Egypt to be shorter rulers of Egypt lived, adds Hogg in his interpretation of the prophecy that descends from the judgment will not be quiet, Vgesdh torn apart so dramatically that the Egyptians Sistasa assemble blown !!
Sever and his companions and his followers into the mountains east of Egypt for the Egyptians chased even get out of the circle where there are eternal Anthm which every Egyptian border.
The prophecy says that these days will witness the "days of blood and fire" .. it looks like a new birth or Tbrigada to Egypt after the pain to come out of the case to a bad case of completely different !! And ended with a prophecy of Nostradamus but do you achieved what is being said?! .. No one knows.

36 Ways to Make a Killer Business Presentation

What makes a good business presentation? Bombarding your audience with information isn't it. Neither is boring them to death with charts and figures. And forget about reading every one of those 20 bullet points you've crammed into each PowerPoint slide (note: this is definitely a don't). What really makes a good business presentation boils down to one thing: engaging your audience.

Granted, getting an audience involved and truly tuned in to a business presentation is easier said than done. Nonetheless, the quality of your presentation can mean the difference between persuading your audience and wasting their time. To help you knock your next gig out of the park, Business News Daily asked presentation coaches, speechwriters and business owners everywhere for their advice and the do's and don'ts of public speaking. Here are 35 tips, tools and secrets to making killer business presentations, regardless of your topic and audience.

No. 1: Be your own stage manager. Check out ahead of time where you will be presenting, find out about the setup, make sure you have tested all your AV. Move the chairs, if needed. Check the room temperature. Remember, hot rooms put people to sleep. — Lydia Graham, CEO, Graham & Associates

No. 2: A good business presentation contains only the necessary information. It has one main point and everything is structured around that point. It doesn't rely heavily upon PowerPoint or slides filled with text, and it allows time for discussion and asking questions. — Eddie Rice, speechwriter, CustomSpeechWriting.com

No. 3: Keep it short and impactful. Your audience will pick up quickly on the fact that you simply enjoy hearing yourself talk if your presentation goes on too long. You should also provide a takeaway. Even if it is a link to a website that gives a free report, if you leave the audience with something, you increase the value that you've provided. — Holly Rodriguez, chief communications strategist, H-Rod & Associates

No. 4: Remember, when making a business presentation, PowerPoint is not *the* point. Your job is to present the information. If your audience can take away just as much by reading it, you are superfluous. Also, I'm sure there is a special room in hell for presenters who merely read their slides to the audience. They deserve it. — John F. Dini, executive business coach, The Alternative Board (TAB)

No. 5: No secret sauce, tech, or gimmicks. What makes any presentation engaging and effective is to put the bottom-line up front (BLUF)and then provide whatever backup data which may be needed. I've seen many presentations where the story is dragged out and tension is built, as if the person was trying to make a movie and build to the climax. But most people appreciate getting to the climax quickly without lots of buildup or foreplay. It isn't a movie and it isn't sex — people are busy and need to deal with the issue and then move on. — Mark McMillion, president, McMillion Leadership Associates LLC

No. 6: Use body language to connect with your audience. Dynamic presenters use their hands, facial expressions, and eyes to keep the audience engaged. If possible, use props and stage movement to keep the audience interested. — Matt Reischer, chief information officer, Legal Marketing Pages Corp.

No. 7: The presenter should be the star, not his or her slides. You want to be a critical part of the presentation. Focus more on what you will say and how you will say it rather than on having the coolest slides. Not everything you say should be on your slides. Focus on your best insights and ideas, or the coolest thing about what it is you are trying to sell. No more than 3 sentences per slide. Present your best data, or no data, not all your data. — Michal Ann Strahilevitz, Ph.D., professor of marketing, Golden Gate University

No. 8: The best way to improve a business presentation is to exceed audience expectations. Sometimes, less is more. The best presentations I have done to buyers for my company at Royce Leather have been presentations in which I used no technology at all. If using technology, the key is to utilize high definition images and short, less than 60 second videos to convey your point. — Andrew Royce Bauer, CEO, Royce Leather

No. 9: As an engineer, we always tried to be as technical as possible to show people we knew our stuff. Now I act as an expert witness in cases where cell phones are used as evidence. My first job is to teach a jury how cell phones work. I've learned to put myself in the seat of someone who's completely out of my field, but still intelligent in their own right. Keeping it simple is key. Assume they are smart but know nothing and teach the way you would want to be taught. — Ben Levitan, telecommunications expert witness, BenLevitan.com

No. 10: Your presentation should trigger a reaction from your audience. Some examples:

- Whoa! = Could you say that again or their nudging the person next to them, asking what did he/she say? (You need this to break into the clutter of people's ADD, OCD and preoccupied minds)
- Wow! = Yep, that really was worth repeating and hearing again
- Hmmm = I'm writing that down, because that is just too good to not use somewhere
- Yes! = I just found out where I'm going to use it (and then they do)

— Dr. Mark Goulston, business psychiatrist and author, Just Listen Discover — the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone

No. 11: The key is simplicity! Simple explanations coupled with simple graphics equal one amazing presentation. People think you need to jam a bunch of data in the slides, but it's a huge mistake. Pick specific points to talk about and create simple graphics to re-enforce the point, not give the view extra information. — Gary Tuch, co-founder, Professor Egghead Science Academy

No. 12: Use natural humor (not jokes). Humorous quotes work well, especially during your introductions. For example, one section of my presentation skills workshop has to deal with speaking anxiety, and I usually begin this section with the following quote: "Mark Twain said it best: 'There are two types of speakers. Those that are nervous and those that are liars. Which one are you?'" This usually results in a chuckle or two from the participants in my workshop. — Lenny Laskowski, president and CEO, LJ Seminars

No. 13: What makes a good business presentation is practice, practice, practice! It's just like sports! You have to repeatedly practice your presentation to improve it. — Andrew J. Zurbuch, president, HealthPlanBrokers.com

No. 14: We would be lost without new technology like SlideShare and GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting helps us attract a nationwide audience and allows people to tune in, listen to, and engage with our presentations, no matter where they are. After a presentation is over, we immediately upload any visual aids to SlideShare, which helps us reach people who may have missed it. More than anything else we want to help small business owners, and thankfully the internet and services like GoToMeeting and SlideShare make that mission much, much easier. — Deborah Sweeney, CEO, MyCorporation.com

No. 15: Don't: a) be defensive, b) pretend you know something you don't, c) try to BS your way out of anything, and d) extend the presentation after it has run its course. — Tim Montgomery, president, TIMIT Solutions. LLC.

No. 16: Authenticity is engaging; let your true personality show. Too many presentations are technically proficient but lack heart. If you are not genuine, there will be an unbridgeable gap between you and your listeners. Authenticity is the most important element of an effective communication in any context. — Brandt Johnson, principal, Syntaxis Inc.

No. 17: Begin with a bang and finish with a flourish. Be more dynamic. Stand instead of sit. If you're talking about something big, make a balloon shape with your arms. Describing a surprise? Clap your hands loudly. Talking about a big step? Take a big step. Use drama: "It killed me," versus "It was disappointing." — Bill Rosenthal, CEO, Communispond

No. 18: Keep eyes on the audience even when using PowerPoint to maintain connection. Divvy the venue into sectors and designate one person in each sector to look at directly during the presentation so that the audience feels connected to you. — Albert Goldson, executive director, Indo-Brazilian Associates LLC

No. 19: My must-have toolkit combines a set of eight colored white-board markers and an arsenal of business experience. A quality presenter will take any agenda and any questions throughout a presentation, draw out key concepts in an interactive manner that engages the audience, and finish five minutes early so everyone is happy. Slide decks fail because they are linear, so you can't rearrange the order without looking disorganized. Too many presenters rely on technology to gloss over their flaws in memory or expertise. — Jacob Aldridge, international business coach, JacobAldridge.com

No. 20: Start with "why." You need to ask yourself: Why you are there to speak? What is the point of your speech? What do you hope to achieve? Keep your ego aside and understand that the audience is not there to watch you fail, but to find value in what you have to say. When it isn’t about you, it is much easier to reduce stage fright and convey the information in an interesting and engaging way. Keep the "why" at the center of your presentation and don't let fear take you off track. — Michelle Stansbury, founder and CEO, Little Penguin Public Relations

No. 21: One key is for presenters to determine which presentation style to use. If you're trying to entertain or inform a large audience, use ballroom style. If you're trying to persuade or educate a smaller audience, use conference room style. Two very different styles, but most mistakes occur when presenters confuse the two purposes. — Paul Radich, master trainer, Extreme Presentation

No. 22: The presenter should do an analysis of the audience and determine the best way to present to them. The delivery and the content should be specific and relevant to them. The presenter should know the purpose of the presentation and exactly what the end result is to be. In business, the end result is usually some form of action. — Glenn Schroeder, president, Glenn David Productions

No. 23: Keep it brief. If not, the consequences can be brutal: wasted time, money and resources; decisions made in confusion; and worthy ideas rejected. If you can’t capture people’s attention and deliver your message with brevity, you’ll lose them. Not sure if you’re brief enough? Ask yourself these 6 questions:

- Can I hear an hour's worth of complex information and summarize it in a two-minute debrief?
- Do my PowerPoint presentations contain fewer than 10 slides, with plenty of images and little text?
- Can I translate complicated ideas into a simple story, analogy, or anecdote?
- Can I expertly deliver headlines like a reporter?
- Do I speak clearly and concisely—in plain English rather than confusing corporate jargon?
- Do I know instantly when I’ve "lost" somebody?

— Joe McCormack, founder, The BRIEF Lab

No. 24: Have a high energy level. It's the most important step to take in presentations. This applies to any type of speaking, any size audience and any topic. If you seemed bored or tired, that vibe will translate to your audience. — Ken Boyd, owner, St. Louis Test Preparation

No. 25: When going from topic to topic, good segues are important. Here are some ways to create great segues: Use Bridge Words, such as "furthermore," "meanwhile," "however," "consequently" and "finally." There are also Bridge Phrases, like "in addition to," "a similar example is," "do you remember when I said," "on the other hand," and "in conjunction with." And use Bridge Actions, such as by asking the audience questions, going point-by-point, using visual aid, pausing and physical movements. — Parker Geiger, CEO, CHUVA group

No. 26: Think about your speech rhythm. It's one thing to say don't be monotone, but there is more to it than that. You should be able to clap to your words. Listen to Barack Obama speak to get a feel for this. Good speeches have a rhythm like a song or a poem. — Bill Balderaz, president, Fathom Healthcare

No. 27: One absolute don't in presentations is reading slides. Tell stories and talk to the slides, but by no means read the slides. If you need notes, then keep those separate from the presentation content for use in meetings. — Justin Honaman, managing partner, Teradata

No. 28: You must be able to make the complicated simple. A confused mind NEVER buys, so focus on finding ways to make you the most OBVIOUS choice. — Michael Bremmer, CEO, Telecomquotes.com

No. 29: One concept that I've borrowed from the book Presentation Zen with great success is the 'take away.' What's the one point that you want to drive home? Your presentation should start by declaring a 'big idea' that will be the take away. You should follow with three or four points that support the big idea, and then bring it back around and restate the idea to summarize. — Michael Assad, vice president of sales and marketing, Argenia Systems Inc.

No. 30: Use visuals, not words. A great business presentation that is both effective and engaging must leverage visual storytelling in order to capture your audience's attention. This is proven by The Picture Superiority Effect, which found that concepts are more likely to be remembered if they are presented as pictures, rather than words. In fact, research has proven that visuals are recalled six times better than words alone. If you're using text-only presentations, it's time to rethink your strategy. — Tim Riesterer, co-author, Conversations That Win

No. 31: The biggest mistake presenters make is lack of preparation. They believe they can wing it — they know enough about the topic to just stand up in front of their audience and go. This idea is a total myth! Your audience can tell if you didn't prepare, and they will respect you less for it. — Andi Enns, marketing and public relations consultant, The Ethical Communicator

No. 32: Your audience may be viewing your slides on-the-go, so make sure your deck is mobile-optimized. Use highly contrasting colors, like white text on a black background, to increase readability and help your images stand out. In addition, text-heavy slides aren't well-suited for mobile screens, so look for opportunities to replace words with images. If you're using video presentation software, use a solution that automatically optimizes your presentation for the mobile device accessing it. — Joan Babinski, vice president of corporate marketing, Brainshark

No. 33: Respond to the audience like a DJ. Strive to create an experience. A good DJ pays attention to how people are responding and can adjust the mood in real-time. The same goes for presentations. You can prepare, yes. You can plan, yes. But, once on stage, it's the audience that will define what goes through and what is forgotten. Feeling their interests and responding is key. — Adam Somlai-Fischer, co-founder, Prezi

No. 34: Have different versions of your presentation for different situations (sales, informative, investment, etc.). And make sure to have an email-friendly PDF version you can send out afterwards that an individual can skim and get the gist without you having to be there to narrate each slide. —Jordan Warzecha, co-founder, backstitch

No. 35: People generally make this mistake when making business presentations: they list their achievements, the benefits or features of their product/service/cause or, heaven forbid, they talk about pricing. What should they be presenting? Their story. Stories give us context, and context helps everyone understand. Why did you start your company? How has this product helped other people? What difference am I/are we making? A good business presentation paints a vivid picture and helps you understand why you would want to do business, or continue doing business, with that company. — Christine Clifford, CEO and president, Christine Clifford Enterprises

No. 36: Choose the right presentation medium. For many presenters, PowerPoint is the default, and that's fine. However, PowerPoint gets a lot of criticism as the cause of poor presentations, but it is not the fault of PowerPoint if a presentation isn't good. You should pick a medium based on the audience. How big is it? What about the venue? Will you present live, face-to-face on stage before a big audience, via a web meeting or one-on-one in a coffee shop or conference room? What kind of technology is at your disposal? Consider all these factors as you determine which medium makes the most sense. — Jerry Rackley, chief analyst, Demand Metric Research Corporation

NOT TRUE
"It’s obviously beyond dispute that President Obama’s support is nowhere near its heights from 2009, but the perception of Obama in freefall just isn’t correct. The most recent Pew Research Center poll showed the president’s approval rating inching higher. So did the latest Fox News poll. The latest Washington Post/ABC poll showed the president’s approval rating up three points. The most recent CNN poll released earlier this week found Obama’s approval rating reaching its highest point of the year.

The new Gallup tracking poll results haven’t been published just yet, but yesterday, the president had a 43% approval rating. At the start of the year, it was 42%.

By no fair definition would anyone characterize Obama as popular, but the data clearly doesn’t support the “plunged to record lows” talk.

So why do we hear it quite so often? I suspect is has something to do with attempts to make sense of the 2014 midterms – Republicans are running a hyper-aggressive anti-Obama campaign, predicated on the assumption that voters who’ve turned against the president will also turn against candidates from the president’s party.

Indeed, there’s already been amble Beltway chatter about how much responsibility Obama should shoulder for the Democrats’ midterm difficulties. The answer is, not much.

In fact, Brian Beutler explained that several key Dems are already outperforming the president in their respective states.
If I had to, I’d put money on Democrats losing [Senate races in Georgia, Kansas, and Kentucky]. But you have to be really invested in a certain conception of politics to explain races that close in states that red as evidence of a national anti-Obama wave. Or to attribute their losses to insufficient Obama bashing.

If roles, parties, and states were reversed, and Democrats were barely hanging on to Senate seats in (for instance) California, Washington, and Connecticut, the obvious story wouldn’t be that Republicans were compounding their disadvantages. It would be that Republicans were outperforming fundamentals in Democratic strongholds. If those Republicans went on to lose anyhow, it wouldn’t support the view that their strategies were flawed, or executed poorly. It would rather suggest that even a good, well executed campaign strategy usually can’t overwhelm the basic nature of the electorate.
Obviously, if the president were riding high in the polls, we’d see a very different midterm dynamic. But despite the chatter, the picture of a president with plummeting support, making it impossible for Democrats to compete, isn’t an accurate one.

36 Ways to Make a Killer Business Presentation

What makes a good business presentation? Bombarding your audience with information isn't it. Neither is boring them to death with charts and figures. And forget about reading every one of those 20 bullet points you've crammed into each PowerPoint slide (note: this is definitely a don't). What really makes a good business presentation boils down to one thing: engaging your audience.

Granted, getting an audience involved and truly tuned in to a business presentation is easier said than done. Nonetheless, the quality of your presentation can mean the difference between persuading your audience and wasting their time. To help you knock your next gig out of the park, Business News Daily asked presentation coaches, speechwriters and business owners everywhere for their advice and the do's and don'ts of public speaking. Here are 35 tips, tools and secrets to making killer business presentations, regardless of your topic and audience.

No. 1: Be your own stage manager. Check out ahead of time where you will be presenting, find out about the setup, make sure you have tested all your AV. Move the chairs, if needed. Check the room temperature. Remember, hot rooms put people to sleep. — Lydia Graham, CEO, Graham & Associates

No. 2: A good business presentation contains only the necessary information. It has one main point and everything is structured around that point. It doesn't rely heavily upon PowerPoint or slides filled with text, and it allows time for discussion and asking questions. — Eddie Rice, speechwriter, CustomSpeechWriting.com

No. 3: Keep it short and impactful. Your audience will pick up quickly on the fact that you simply enjoy hearing yourself talk if your presentation goes on too long. You should also provide a takeaway. Even if it is a link to a website that gives a free report, if you leave the audience with something, you increase the value that you've provided. — Holly Rodriguez, chief communications strategist, H-Rod & Associates

No. 4: Remember, when making a business presentation, PowerPoint is not *the* point. Your job is to present the information. If your audience can take away just as much by reading it, you are superfluous. Also, I'm sure there is a special room in hell for presenters who merely read their slides to the audience. They deserve it. — John F. Dini, executive business coach, The Alternative Board (TAB)

No. 5: No secret sauce, tech, or gimmicks. What makes any presentation engaging and effective is to put the bottom-line up front (BLUF)and then provide whatever backup data which may be needed. I've seen many presentations where the story is dragged out and tension is built, as if the person was trying to make a movie and build to the climax. But most people appreciate getting to the climax quickly without lots of buildup or foreplay. It isn't a movie and it isn't sex — people are busy and need to deal with the issue and then move on. — Mark McMillion, president, McMillion Leadership Associates LLC

No. 6: Use body language to connect with your audience. Dynamic presenters use their hands, facial expressions, and eyes to keep the audience engaged. If possible, use props and stage movement to keep the audience interested. — Matt Reischer, chief information officer, Legal Marketing Pages Corp.

No. 7: The presenter should be the star, not his or her slides. You want to be a critical part of the presentation. Focus more on what you will say and how you will say it rather than on having the coolest slides. Not everything you say should be on your slides. Focus on your best insights and ideas, or the coolest thing about what it is you are trying to sell. No more than 3 sentences per slide. Present your best data, or no data, not all your data. — Michal Ann Strahilevitz, Ph.D., professor of marketing, Golden Gate University

No. 8: The best way to improve a business presentation is to exceed audience expectations. Sometimes, less is more. The best presentations I have done to buyers for my company at Royce Leather have been presentations in which I used no technology at all. If using technology, the key is to utilize high definition images and short, less than 60 second videos to convey your point. — Andrew Royce Bauer, CEO, Royce Leather

No. 9: As an engineer, we always tried to be as technical as possible to show people we knew our stuff. Now I act as an expert witness in cases where cell phones are used as evidence. My first job is to teach a jury how cell phones work. I've learned to put myself in the seat of someone who's completely out of my field, but still intelligent in their own right. Keeping it simple is key. Assume they are smart but know nothing and teach the way you would want to be taught. — Ben Levitan, telecommunications expert witness, BenLevitan.com

No. 10: Your presentation should trigger a reaction from your audience. Some examples:

- Whoa! = Could you say that again or their nudging the person next to them, asking what did he/she say? (You need this to break into the clutter of people's ADD, OCD and preoccupied minds)
- Wow! = Yep, that really was worth repeating and hearing again
- Hmmm = I'm writing that down, because that is just too good to not use somewhere
- Yes! = I just found out where I'm going to use it (and then they do)

— Dr. Mark Goulston, business psychiatrist and author, Just Listen Discover — the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone

No. 11: The key is simplicity! Simple explanations coupled with simple graphics equal one amazing presentation. People think you need to jam a bunch of data in the slides, but it's a huge mistake. Pick specific points to talk about and create simple graphics to re-enforce the point, not give the view extra information. — Gary Tuch, co-founder, Professor Egghead Science Academy

No. 12: Use natural humor (not jokes). Humorous quotes work well, especially during your introductions. For example, one section of my presentation skills workshop has to deal with speaking anxiety, and I usually begin this section with the following quote: "Mark Twain said it best: 'There are two types of speakers. Those that are nervous and those that are liars. Which one are you?'" This usually results in a chuckle or two from the participants in my workshop. — Lenny Laskowski, president and CEO, LJ Seminars

No. 13: What makes a good business presentation is practice, practice, practice! It's just like sports! You have to repeatedly practice your presentation to improve it. — Andrew J. Zurbuch, president, HealthPlanBrokers.com

No. 14: We would be lost without new technology like SlideShare and GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting helps us attract a nationwide audience and allows people to tune in, listen to, and engage with our presentations, no matter where they are. After a presentation is over, we immediately upload any visual aids to SlideShare, which helps us reach people who may have missed it. More than anything else we want to help small business owners, and thankfully the internet and services like GoToMeeting and SlideShare make that mission much, much easier. — Deborah Sweeney, CEO, MyCorporation.com

No. 15: Don't: a) be defensive, b) pretend you know something you don't, c) try to BS your way out of anything, and d) extend the presentation after it has run its course. — Tim Montgomery, president, TIMIT Solutions. LLC.

No. 16: Authenticity is engaging; let your true personality show. Too many presentations are technically proficient but lack heart. If you are not genuine, there will be an unbridgeable gap between you and your listeners. Authenticity is the most important element of an effective communication in any context. — Brandt Johnson, principal, Syntaxis Inc.

No. 17: Begin with a bang and finish with a flourish. Be more dynamic. Stand instead of sit. If you're talking about something big, make a balloon shape with your arms. Describing a surprise? Clap your hands loudly. Talking about a big step? Take a big step. Use drama: "It killed me," versus "It was disappointing." — Bill Rosenthal, CEO, Communispond

No. 18: Keep eyes on the audience even when using PowerPoint to maintain connection. Divvy the venue into sectors and designate one person in each sector to look at directly during the presentation so that the audience feels connected to you. — Albert Goldson, executive director, Indo-Brazilian Associates LLC

No. 19: My must-have toolkit combines a set of eight colored white-board markers and an arsenal of business experience. A quality presenter will take any agenda and any questions throughout a presentation, draw out key concepts in an interactive manner that engages the audience, and finish five minutes early so everyone is happy. Slide decks fail because they are linear, so you can't rearrange the order without looking disorganized. Too many presenters rely on technology to gloss over their flaws in memory or expertise. — Jacob Aldridge, international business coach, JacobAldridge.com

No. 20: Start with "why." You need to ask yourself: Why you are there to speak? What is the point of your speech? What do you hope to achieve? Keep your ego aside and understand that the audience is not there to watch you fail, but to find value in what you have to say. When it isn’t about you, it is much easier to reduce stage fright and convey the information in an interesting and engaging way. Keep the "why" at the center of your presentation and don't let fear take you off track. — Michelle Stansbury, founder and CEO, Little Penguin Public Relations

No. 21: One key is for presenters to determine which presentation style to use. If you're trying to entertain or inform a large audience, use ballroom style. If you're trying to persuade or educate a smaller audience, use conference room style. Two very different styles, but most mistakes occur when presenters confuse the two purposes. — Paul Radich, master trainer, Extreme Presentation

No. 22: The presenter should do an analysis of the audience and determine the best way to present to them. The delivery and the content should be specific and relevant to them. The presenter should know the purpose of the presentation and exactly what the end result is to be. In business, the end result is usually some form of action. — Glenn Schroeder, president, Glenn David Productions

No. 23: Keep it brief. If not, the consequences can be brutal: wasted time, money and resources; decisions made in confusion; and worthy ideas rejected. If you can’t capture people’s attention and deliver your message with brevity, you’ll lose them. Not sure if you’re brief enough? Ask yourself these 6 questions:

- Can I hear an hour's worth of complex information and summarize it in a two-minute debrief?
- Do my PowerPoint presentations contain fewer than 10 slides, with plenty of images and little text?
- Can I translate complicated ideas into a simple story, analogy, or anecdote?
- Can I expertly deliver headlines like a reporter?
- Do I speak clearly and concisely—in plain English rather than confusing corporate jargon?
- Do I know instantly when I’ve "lost" somebody?

— Joe McCormack, founder, The BRIEF Lab

No. 24: Have a high energy level. It's the most important step to take in presentations. This applies to any type of speaking, any size audience and any topic. If you seemed bored or tired, that vibe will translate to your audience. — Ken Boyd, owner, St. Louis Test Preparation

No. 25: When going from topic to topic, good segues are important. Here are some ways to create great segues: Use Bridge Words, such as "furthermore," "meanwhile," "however," "consequently" and "finally." There are also Bridge Phrases, like "in addition to," "a similar example is," "do you remember when I said," "on the other hand," and "in conjunction with." And use Bridge Actions, such as by asking the audience questions, going point-by-point, using visual aid, pausing and physical movements. — Parker Geiger, CEO, CHUVA group

No. 26: Think about your speech rhythm. It's one thing to say don't be monotone, but there is more to it than that. You should be able to clap to your words. Listen to Barack Obama speak to get a feel for this. Good speeches have a rhythm like a song or a poem. — Bill Balderaz, president, Fathom Healthcare

No. 27: One absolute don't in presentations is reading slides. Tell stories and talk to the slides, but by no means read the slides. If you need notes, then keep those separate from the presentation content for use in meetings. — Justin Honaman, managing partner, Teradata

No. 28: You must be able to make the complicated simple. A confused mind NEVER buys, so focus on finding ways to make you the most OBVIOUS choice. — Michael Bremmer, CEO, Telecomquotes.com

No. 29: One concept that I've borrowed from the book Presentation Zen with great success is the 'take away.' What's the one point that you want to drive home? Your presentation should start by declaring a 'big idea' that will be the take away. You should follow with three or four points that support the big idea, and then bring it back around and restate the idea to summarize. — Michael Assad, vice president of sales and marketing, Argenia Systems Inc.

No. 30: Use visuals, not words. A great business presentation that is both effective and engaging must leverage visual storytelling in order to capture your audience's attention. This is proven by The Picture Superiority Effect, which found that concepts are more likely to be remembered if they are presented as pictures, rather than words. In fact, research has proven that visuals are recalled six times better than words alone. If you're using text-only presentations, it's time to rethink your strategy. — Tim Riesterer, co-author, Conversations That Win

No. 31: The biggest mistake presenters make is lack of preparation. They believe they can wing it — they know enough about the topic to just stand up in front of their audience and go. This idea is a total myth! Your audience can tell if you didn't prepare, and they will respect you less for it. — Andi Enns, marketing and public relations consultant, The Ethical Communicator

No. 32: Your audience may be viewing your slides on-the-go, so make sure your deck is mobile-optimized. Use highly contrasting colors, like white text on a black background, to increase readability and help your images stand out. In addition, text-heavy slides aren't well-suited for mobile screens, so look for opportunities to replace words with images. If you're using video presentation software, use a solution that automatically optimizes your presentation for the mobile device accessing it. — Joan Babinski, vice president of corporate marketing, Brainshark

No. 33: Respond to the audience like a DJ. Strive to create an experience. A good DJ pays attention to how people are responding and can adjust the mood in real-time. The same goes for presentations. You can prepare, yes. You can plan, yes. But, once on stage, it's the audience that will define what goes through and what is forgotten. Feeling their interests and responding is key. — Adam Somlai-Fischer, co-founder, Prezi

No. 34: Have different versions of your presentation for different situations (sales, informative, investment, etc.). And make sure to have an email-friendly PDF version you can send out afterwards that an individual can skim and get the gist without you having to be there to narrate each slide. —Jordan Warzecha, co-founder, backstitch

No. 35: People generally make this mistake when making business presentations: they list their achievements, the benefits or features of their product/service/cause or, heaven forbid, they talk about pricing. What should they be presenting? Their story. Stories give us context, and context helps everyone understand. Why did you start your company? How has this product helped other people? What difference am I/are we making? A good business presentation paints a vivid picture and helps you understand why you would want to do business, or continue doing business, with that company. — Christine Clifford, CEO and president, Christine Clifford Enterprises

No. 36: Choose the right presentation medium. For many presenters, PowerPoint is the default, and that's fine. However, PowerPoint gets a lot of criticism as the cause of poor presentations, but it is not the fault of PowerPoint if a presentation isn't good. You should pick a medium based on the audience. How big is it? What about the venue? Will you present live, face-to-face on stage before a big audience, via a web meeting or one-on-one in a coffee shop or conference room? What kind of technology is at your disposal? Consider all these factors as you determine which medium makes the most sense. — Jerry Rackley, chief analyst, Demand Metric Research Corporation

Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner: "Mr. President Barack Obama
I am writing to you to bring to your attention a matter that, if confirmed by you, would have grave implications for relations between our two countries. What I wish to know is whether Nancy Soderberg, the person you have appointed as Chair of the Public Interest Declassification Board (PIDB), which reports directly to the Government of the United States of America, is also the Co-Chair of the American Task Force Argentina (ATFA), an entity specifically created to attack and slander the Argentine Republic and its President.
As you are certainly aware, the functions of the PIDB encompass sensitive issues of national security and include giving advice to the President and to other US Executive Branch officials. In fact, on 10 November 2012, upon reappointing Ms. Soderberg, the White House publicly described such post as “key”. However, the biography distributed by your office does not mention Ms. Soderberg’s position in ATFA and the biography of its Co-Chair distributed by ATFA does not include the high post held by that person in the White House. Could this be a case of namesakes?"

Libya, A Nation in Despair

By Timothy Alexander Guzman

The spirit of democracy cannot be imposed from without. It has to come from within -Mahatma Gandhi

The US-NATO invasion of Libya in 2011 to remove Muammar Gaddafi for a government that would be subservient to Western interests has proven to be a disaster for North Africa and Europe. They have managed to destroy one of Africa’s wealthiest nations with the highest GDP per capita and less people living below the poverty line. Libya also had the highest life expectancy than any other nation in the African continent before the US-NATO invasion which leads to my next point. There were more than 30,000 deaths, 50,000 injured and 4,000 missing in Libya during the 2011 civil war that lasted several months. The West conveniently called it a “humanitarian intervention” for public relations, but the invasion was a “humanitarian disaster”. Manlio Dinucci’s article ‘The “Humanitarian War” against Libya: How the West Destroys Countries and Creates “Failed States’which can be found at Global Research explains the role played by Italy (a member state of NATO) in Libya. He wrote:

This state, in addition to being a factor of stability and development in North Africa, had used its investments to facilitate the emergence of organizations that one day might have made the financial autonomy of Africa possible: the African Investment Bank, based in Tripoli; the African Central Bank, with headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria; the African Monetary Fund, based in Yaoundé, Cameroon.

After having funded and armed hostile tribal areas in Tripoli, which caused the “Arab Spring” in Libya to assume from the outset the form of armed insurrection, and thus provoking the government’s response, they waged a war that destroyed the Libyan state in 2011: in seven months the U.S./NATO Air Force carried out 10,000 attack missions, unleashing more than 40,000 bombs and missiles.

Since then, scores of people have been killed due to the ongoing civil war between government forces, militias and terrorists organizations that is based on sectarian hatred and for the control of the oil industry. Amnesty International UK (AI) published a report that explains Libya’s situation titled ‘Rule of the gun: Abductions, torture and other abuses by militias in western Libya’. Libya’s situation is now even worst according to Amnesty International’s recent press release:

Militias and armed groups in western Libya are carrying out rampant human rights abuses, including war crimes, according to a new briefing today (30 October) from Amnesty International. The 30-page briefing – Rule of the gun: Abductions, torture and other abuses by militias in western Libya – shows that armed groups have tortured – and probably summarily killed – detainees in their custody, and have committed a wave of abductions targeting civilians based on their origins or perceived political allegiance.

Likewise, satellite images released today by Amnesty show that fighters on all sides in the conflict have displayed an utter disregard for civilian lives, launching indiscriminate rocket and artillery fire into crowded civilian neighbourhoods which has damaged homes, civilian infrastructure and medical facilities. Those responsible include members of the Libya Dawn coalition (groups from Misratah, Tripoli and other towns in western Libya), and the Zintan-Warshafana coalition (groups from Zintan and the Warshafana area). Satellite images obtained by Amnesty show significant damage to civilian property in the Warshafana region, including at Al-Zahra Hospital which has come under heavy rocket fire. The intensive care unit at Zawiya Hospital has also been struck by a rocket which injured ten people, including doctors, nurses, patients and visitors.

Since July at least 287,000 people have been internally displaced as a result of indiscriminate attacks and a fear of being targeted by militias, and a further 100,000 have been forced to flee the country in fear for their lives.

There are constant rocket and artillery shells being fired by various militias and terrorist organizations which have resulted in mass civilian casualties. Libyan infrastructure and hospitals have been destroyed. Hundreds of thousands of Libyans have been either displaced from their homes or forced to migrate to neighboring countries in Northern Africa and Europe to its north. ‘The Spectator’ a conservative magazine based in London explained Italy’s immigration crisis concerning what they call “Libya’s boat people” after a tragic accident that resulted in the deaths of more than 366 people who were desperate to reach Europe’s shores:

The decision to open the floodgates came in a moment of national moral panic after 366 people drowned in a single boat which caught fire and sank a stone’s throw from an idyllic beach on the island of Lampedusa, an exclusive resort favoured by the right-on rich. The dead included a mother who had given birth during the voyage and was still attached to her newborn child when divers found their bodies trapped inside the sunken vessel.

The policy change, driven by a perverted mix of human decency and political correctness, was pure folly: it has acted as a green light to wannabe boat people everywhere, whose numbers soar as the chaos in Africa and the Middle East escalates. The result is an exodus of biblical proportions out of Africa into Italy. So far this year, more than 100,000 boat people have arrived in Italy — two thirds of them brought ashore by the Italian navy. That is more than double the number who arrived in 2011, the previous record year. It is estimated that the total by the end of 2014 will surpass 200,000. So far this year Italy has deported only 10,000.

The Spectator states that “numbers soar as the chaos in Africa and the Middle East escalates.” Yes, that is true. It is also true that Libya and other African and Middle Eastern nations that suffer from the chaos imposed by the same Western nations that preach Democracy. The US and European style of Democracy by force is not a Democracy. Democracy has to be a grassroots effort, a natural process that is not imposed by a foreign government or entity. The American and European notion of “Bringing Democracy” to the world is an Imperial agenda. Let’s look at a number of examples since the September 11th attacks when President George W. Bush was President, starting with Afghanistan and Iraq, now both countries are in total chaos with numerous militias and terrorists organization battling each other along sectarian lines and for political power. New and old terrorist organizations now have expanded throughout Africa and the Middle East such as Boko-Haram (Nigeria), Al-Shabaab (Somalia and Ethiopia) and the Lord’s Resistance Army (Uganda) and the Islamic state of Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL), Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda and the so-called Khorasan (supposedly made up of former Al-Qaeda members) in the Middle East plus any new organization that arises out of the ashes of war. Let’s not forget that the Military-Industrial Complex has made enormous profits from both wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and on the “War on Terror.” Africa is the future for the US-NATO war industry starting with Libya. However, the Amnesty International report paints a very disturbing picture concerning innocent civilians caught in the crossfire:

Scores of civilians have been abducted by armed groups in Tripoli, Zawiya, Warshafana and towns in the Nafusa Mountains, with numerous people held hostage for up to two months in a spate of tit-for-tat attacks based on their town of origin or perceived political affiliation. In some cases civilians have been abducted as bargaining chips in order to secure prisoner exchanges. While several such exchanges have taken place since the start of the conflict on 13 July, abductions and other reprisals have continued.

Tripoli residents originally from Zintan told Amnesty that Libya Dawn militias have carried out door-to-door “manhunts” to seize people based on their tribal affiliation or presumed political allegiance. Militias have also carried out extensive raids against civilian homes, looting and destroying property, and setting homes and farms ablaze in the area of Warshafana.

Libya’s invasion by the West was not for democratic purposes, it was for its oil reserves. They also wanted to remove Gaddafi from power because he was in the early stages of creating a gold dinar for trade, not only for Libya but all of Africa. It was a threat to the petrodollar. King World News interviewed multi-billionaire Hugo Salinas Price of Mexico in 2011 and said:

The central bank is definitely afraid of doing anything that is not being done by all of the other central banks. They feel they are part of a brotherhood and they can’t betray the rest. They don’t want to present a currency that would be viewed as out of line, that’s the way they think. It’s a sad thing but this is the mentality.

Thinking about it a little bit more, what happened to Mr. Gaddafi, many speculate the real reason he was ousted was that he was planning an all-African currency for conducting trade. The same thing happened to him that happened to Saddam because the US doesn’t want any solid competing currency out there vs the dollar. You know Gaddafi was talking about a gold dinar.

Libya is a nation in chaos because of the Western powers and their “humanitarian intervention” policies which was designed to expand their footprint on African territory. The US, UK and France were the main powers that instigated Gaddafi’s removal. Libya was not perfect, but it sure was a lot better than most African nations who are under a financial dictatorship imposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. Since then, Libya has become a haven for terrorists who commit human rights abuses on a grand scale. When President Barack Obama announced that the US and its NATO Allies will launch military strikes against Libya to protect its civilians was a lie. Obama began his speech by acknowledging that he had already authorized U.S. and NATO forces to invade Libya to protect civilians:

Good afternoon, everybody. Today I authorized the armed forces of the United States to begin a limited military action in Libya in support of an international effort to protect Libyan civilians. That action has now begun.

In this effort, the United States is acting with a broad coalition that is committed to enforcing United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, which calls for the protection of the Libyan people.

U.S. and NATO’s intervention in Libya has made life for ordinary citizens a living hell. If this is Western-style Democracy then who in their right state of mind would welcome it? I believe that most nations in Africa and the Middle East would pass on Western-imposed Democracy because it would only lead to a political crisis with the possibility of war following in its footsteps. The aftermath of Iraq and Syria is a perfect example of what happened after Washington and its NATO allies decided to intervene, whether by military force or by simply financing opposition groups to overthrow their government for the sake of Democracy, but that resulted in unintended consequences. However, the unintended consequences of invading Libya have benefited big oil corporations, the petrodollar and the US-NATO militaries by expanding their bases into Africa to fight terrorism.

Then again, it is appropriate to ask ourselves, Cui Bono?
