Reality With James Edstrom

Barack Obama

What I am seeing on the Republican side of this election is just sick. They are anti GOD and they are anti American. They are only for money and greed.

Let me tell you about these hard core Republican voters. They never look at the facts. They never look at who is best for the job. When they hit the voting booth, they will only vote Republican. They only want to protect their money and power and they could care less about what candidate is the best.

New Yorkers just went through hurricane Sandy and we are devastated here. The New Jersey shoreline is destroyed, 90 percent of Long Island was without power, and Mitt Romney, who claims to be for everyone is no where to be found. Why you ask? Because Romney already knows he has lost here. So the Republicans instead of pulling together as Americans, would rather continue their rampage of lies, instead of doing the right thing, which is to help the people that are devastated by this storm.


 Mitt Romney could care less about the people that need help. They mean nothing to him. In fact he looks down on everyone that is not rich. Only the rich deserve to own a home, only the rich deserve medical care and only the rich deserve bailouts when Wall Street crashes, and he believes the middle class should walk away with nothing. Mitt Romney also believes that it is the middle class that should bail out the rich when things falls apart, because they are better than everyone else and they deserve it. This is the way the rich think and this is the way Romney thinks.

Romney is also full of crap that we should not raise taxes on the rich, because if we keep their tax rates low, it will trickle down to the middle class. This is a lie. Look what happened when we bailed out these banks and credit card companies and everyone said it would help the middle class. It helped none of us. The banks and credit card companies got our money and did not let go of a dime. They cut the credit for the middle class down to nothing and all it ended up being, was a way to save the rich. Yes, we saved the rich and they spit in our faces. They even got more aggressive in milking the middle class and the poor. They spent more money to get their way in Washington DC and the corrupt Republican Congress went right along with them.


It really makes me sick to watch Fox News. This network a very long time ago was really fair and balanced. Now it is just a arm of Rupert Murdoch and the Republican party. Watching Sean Hannity is really sick. He has his token African Americans on the show to back up his views and these guests should be ashamed of themselves. Hannity is just using them to get his biased view across, and to get his boss Rupert Murdoch's anti American agenda across. Rupert Murdoch is not even from America, he is Australian. It is not right that someone that is not from America has so much power in the American media.

Democrats John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson gave equal rights to African Americans, not the Republicans. The democrats freed African Americans, while the Republicans were against it. These token African American guests on Fox News are just being used, they are not being respected and they are a disgrace to all African Americans. They really are.


I don't believe in abortion, but I also do not want to go back to the days when woman had to go into some disgusting back room to get one and ended up dying. Mitt Romney will take away a woman's right to chose. If you vote for Mitt Romney and power hungry Paul Ryan, we will go back to those days. Our teenage children will be dying on some illegal abortion table. 


The Log Cabin Republicans, the gay arm of the Republican party, are a disgrace. After all the progress we made on gay rights, they continue to support Romney, knowing that Romney will never treat Gay Americans equal. Romney is anti gay marriage, anti gay rights and believes that straight people have more rights than gay Americans.


Barack Obama is for all Americans. Everyone deserves health care, not just the rich. Americans who paid into the Social Security system deserve their benefits, not because they are taking charity, but because they worked hard all their life and played by the rules. Mitt Romney will cut Social Security.

Mitt Romney cries about big government. He wanted to cut almost a billion dollars from FEMA and wanted to raise the amount given the military, even know they did not request it. Where would we be right now without FEMA? There is a place for Government if it can be run right and fair. Barack Obama is trying to do this, even know the Republican controlled Congress have tried to block his every move.

The Republicans instead of coming together as Americans to help our country, decided they wanted their power in Washington DC at any cost, even if it made our country collapse. They were so intent on making Obama fail, they even told us this is what they wanted. 


Barack Obama could have walked away from Governor Christie. The Governor has been a huge Romney supporter and has bad mouthed the President up and down the east coast. But Barack Obama and Governor Christie put aside their differences, because New Jersey and Americans needed the government. This is the way government should work. The government should be there when Americans need it and Obama knows this. Obama did not see Republicans or Democrats, he saw Americans that were devastated, and rushed in to help.

Watching Governor Christie and President Obama together really showed Americans how a President should act in a time of crisis. FEMA was on the spot almost right away. Obama was on the spot right away. Not like Republican George Bush, who stayed away from Hurricane Katrina for weeks.

Governor Christie scored big points with Americans during this disaster. Christie did not think about Romney and politics, he thought about the people of New Jersey and put down his anti Obama sword and worked with the President to help fellow Americans. This is how Government should work. The Republicans would have let New Jersey rot.


Send Barack Obama back to finish the job. Vote out all these Republicans, so he can. The Republican party is not what it used to be. They are only for the rich and only care about power and wars. Send a message this election day. The message is Americans are not going to take it anymore!

Paul Ryan And Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan held a Campaign Rally at Henderson Pavillion yesterday,in Henderson, Nevada.

Story By: James Edstrom

Mitt Romney

How stupid does Mitt Romney think the American public is? First of all, now that he released his 2011 tax bill, he says he did not take all his deductions, in order to keep with his statement last month, where he said he never paid lower than 13 percent. If he had taken all the deductions, he would have payed less than the 13 percent in 2011.

Said Romney, "I don't pay more than are legally due and frankly if I had paid more than are legally due I don't think I'd be qualified to become president," I'd think people would want me to follow the law and pay only what the tax code requires."

Now this lair, yes he is a lair, throws out his 2011 tax bill with great fanfare and expects us to buy into what he is selling. LIES!

Since Romney will lose the election to Barack Obama, we guarantee after he loses, he will file a amended tax return to get the money back. He is legally allowed to do this.

It is disgusting that Romney expects Americans to trust him, yet he will not release all the other years of his tax returns, like every other president has done. Those tax returns will show how much the rich Romney makes, and how little he really pays in taxes.

The choice is clear and has been for a very long time. Barack Obama is the only one who can take America to where it needs to be. We need a thriving middle class, we need health care for everyone and we need to start putting these Wall Street crooks in jail. These Republicans can yell that regulation is bad for business, but without regulations the banks and Wall Street will continue to steal from us blind.

Barbra Streisand Blogs In Huffington Post

To Tell America The Truth

Barbra Streisand

FROM HUFFINGTON POST: In this election, the people of America have to make a choice between two candidates with very different values, visions and solutions to the most pressing problems facing our country. The question voters need to ask themselves when they walk into the voting booth on November 6th is: "Will the country be better off returning to the policies of George W. Bush's Administration?"

Like Bush, Governor Romney believes we need more tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% and fewer rules for Wall Street. He wants to roll back financial reform and set Wall Street free to write its own rules again. He wants to repeal health care reform and leave 30 million people without a safety net. And the trillions in tax cuts he wants to give to millionaires and billionaires will only force more devastating cuts to critical programs that serve the middle-class.

It's hard to believe that Mitt Romney would campaign on policies that nearly destroyed the country and virtually eliminated so much of America's middle-class. With stagnant wages, escalating medical costs, foreclosures, rampant unemployment, loss of good paying jobs and the disappearance of retirement savings due to deregulation and manipulation by Wall Street, Mitt Romney and the Republican narrative fail to address the key concerns of everyday Americans.

Time and again, Republicans' policies put corporations, not the people, first. They challenge current regulations and try to block new regulations that help to protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. Just recently, House Republicans went to great lengths to block the implementation of a new food safety law, while also trying to cut the budgets of agencies that oversee food safety. And many in the party either deny the science on climate change or refuse to support legislation that will begin to help mitigate the effects of global warming.

The only budget proposal that Republicans will support is the Ryan budget, which completely disinvests in America during a time when the country desperately needs investments to spur growth and competitiveness. Our country, and the notion of the American Dream, was built on the bedrock that government must play a vital role in providing investments that ultimately afford opportunity for all. If everyone was left to fend for themselves, and government failed to take the lead in investing in schools, roads, research and development, space exploration, and the Internet, we would have a very different country where the fate of a person's future would be sealed in the socio-economic status that he or she was born into. Ultimately, Mitt Romney and his party see an America where the wealth should trickle down, instead of building a strong middle class so that everyone can rise up together.


No matter how much undisclosed money floods into Romney affiliated super PACs from the likes of Sheldon Adelson, the Koch brothers, and their friends, the things they cannot change are the facts.

It's a fact that Mitt Romney became enormously wealthy, while his company, Bain Capital, bought and bankrupted companies, laid off American workers and shipped jobs overseas.

It's a fact that Mitt Romney had the 47th worst job creation record as Governor.

It's a fact that Mitt Romney has millions of dollars in Swiss bank accounts and secretive offshore investment funds in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda in order to avoid paying his fair share of U.S. taxes. And given his refusal to release more than two years of tax returns (unprecedented for a Presidential candidate), it's clear that the Romney campaign believes that the truth about what is contained in those tax returns is far more damaging than Romney's refusal to release them.

It's a fact that Mitt Romney has taken both sides on virtually every issue important to voters. He was for and then against -- gun control, a women's right to reproductive choice, health care for all, and the economic stimulus. He once believed that people's actions contributed to global warming and now he has changed his position. He was against signing the no-tax pledge and now he is a strong supporter.

It's a fact that Mitt Romney's solution to stimulate the economy is further deregulation, a tactic that led to the growth of "too big to fail" banks, the BP oil spill, the housing crisis, and ultimately, the American and global financial and economic meltdown.

And it's a fact that Republican legislators across the country are passing new voting restrictions to disenfranchise voters, shutting down non-partisan voter registration drives, and cutting back on early voting. They hope that these shameful tactics to subvert the democratic process will have an impact on the election.

While the millions raised by Mitt Romney's super PACs to defeat President Obama may not be able to change the facts, these funds can saturate the media with misinformation and lies in order to bury the truth and persuade swing-state voters.


When Barack Obama was elected in 2008, the primary goal of the Republican Party was not to fix the country and get Americans back to work, but to defeat the President four years later. They spent these past few years obstructing the passage of important legislation. Since 2007, the Senate Historical Office has shown that Democrats have had to end Republican filibusters more than 360 times, a historic record for what had been a very rarely used parliamentary procedure.

Compared to George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, Obama has been more fiscally conservative than any other president in recent history, with the exception of President Bill Clinton.

President Obama has been far better at creating jobs than President George W. Bush. During the 7 years and 8 months of George Bush's presidency, before the financial crash, only 2.6 million new private sector jobs were created. In the final month of George Bush's presidency, the country lost 800,000 jobs, and in the last six months of the Bush Administration, the country lost over 3.5 million jobs.

However, in the last 30 months under President Obama's leadership, nearly 4.6 million new private sector jobs were created (averaging about 150,000 new jobs per month). In President Obama's last 2 ½ years in office, 40% more jobs were created than in nearly all of President Bush's eight years in office.

The last President who was elected amidst a severe economic crisis and high unemployment was Franklin D. Roosevelt. His policies strengthened government so that it would protect the people (creating Glass-Steagall to regulate the banks, the FDIC to insure bank depositors, the Securities and Exchange Commission to regulate the stock market, and Social Security to help people build a safety net for their retirement). FDR's strategy to spend money to create jobs and stimulate the economy is what ultimately helped pull the country out of a depression.

Even though the country's most respected economists have agreed on what history has already proven -- that MORE federal spending, not austerity, is necessary to stimulate the economy and create jobs, today's Republicans categorically reject this strategy. They are running on a platform of further deregulation and cutting spending to the bone, so that those earning millions will get more tax cuts, even though it means Americans who need a safety net won't have it.

Unlike Mitt Romney, President Obama believes we need to invest in education, energy, innovation and infrastructure and reform our tax system to create good jobs, grow our economy and pay down the debt in a reasoned way. He believes in an inclusive country where all people deserve equal protection and treatment under the law, as well as equal opportunity, whether they are gay, straight, black, brown, white, religious, atheist, old or young.

The choice is clear. Would you vote for a person who pays his taxes or someone who wiggles his way out of them? Do you want a President who has gained the respect of the world community or someone who on a recent diplomatic trip abroad provoked the ire and ridicule of other world leaders? Do we want a country where everyone is fending for themselves or where everyone is pitching in and working together? Do we want to go backward with Mitt Romney or move forward with President Obama?

On Tuesday, November 6th, the American people will have the power to make that choice. And I hope everyone, young and old, from red state to blue state, chooses progress over corporate profit. And over the course of the next four years, I hope we can all come together to re-build an America where opportunity and prosperity is once again within everyone's reach.


 We applaud  Miss Streisand and the Huffington Post for telling the truth. These are facts.

For someone as talented, powerful  and rich as Miss Streisand to lash out at a candidate that is only for the rich, it shows the compassion she has for the middle class and the poor. It shows the understanding she has for what is really happening in America these days and it shows that she understands how unfair everything is right now. 

Americans are suffering, not because of Barack Obama, but because of Republican greed that let Wall Street steal from us and get away with it. The Republicans let corporations dictate policy and also steal from us and then allowed us to bail them out, so the rich could keep their fortunes. Almost no one went to jail. In fact the banks and the giant companies still continue to steal from us and when caught, they pay a small fine, nothing compared to what they stole. To them, it is a cost of doing business.

It would make sense, that in the future when a bank or corporation steals from the American Public, they should be fined what they stole and millions more to show them that we will not stand for corruption. The heads of these companies should go to jail. If I stole one billion from the public, I would go to jail. Why aren't these CEO's of these companies rewarded the same way I would be? 

Now I am sure that many readers think I am Democrat. The fact is, I have been a Republican all my life. But I look at the facts when I vote, I do not go down party lines. This is a very stupid way to vote. I vote for who is best suited for the job and the fact is, Republicans have not gotten my vote in many years. George Bush was a horror and the Republicans would have you believe that Mitt Romney is different. He is not. 

Mitt Romney is for the rich. He is against the middle class and the poor. He is against the senior citizens who paid into the Medicare system all their life and now Mitt Romney wants to take it away. Mitt Romney is anti-gay and believes only straight Americans deserve the full rights and protections that marriage gives. Looking at Mitt Romney's sons, there are two that look pretty dainty to me.

All Americans should vote for Barack Obama. If you are that stupid to think that Mitt Romney will help the poor and middle class, then I would like to sell you part of the Brooklyn Bridge.

 Copyright Infringed Mitt Romney

The Silversun Pickups have asked Republican candidate Mitt Romney's campaign to stop using their song "Panic Switch" at events. The band has issued a cease-and-desist order and released the following statement statement Wednesday, denouncing Romney and his campaign.


Seems as if the GOP is once again whimsically ignoring our great nation's laws to do whatever it wants to do, and shooting itself in the foot in the process. Without any regard for copyright or intellectual property laws, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has, without permission, begun to use Silversun Pickups' 2009 smash "Panic Switch" at campaign stops across the country. Neither the band nor its representatives were contacted to gain permission for the use of the song and the band has no intention of endorsing the Romney campaign. The band's attorney issued a cease and desist today.

"We don't like people going behind our backs, using our music without asking, and we don't like the Romney campaign. We're nice, approachable people. We won't bite. Unless you're Mitt Romney! We were very close to just letting this go because the irony was too good. While he is inadvertently playing a song that describes his whole campaign, we doubt that 'Panic Switch' really sends the message he intends."

Bitching By: James Edstrom

 Barack Obama

It is amazing that the Congress is not voting on anything good for the Country, yet it keeps voting to repeal the new health care law. I think this is the 30th time they voted to repeal it, even know they know it won't pass the Senate. This is such a disgrace. It really is.

This do nothing Congress, controlled by the Republicans, who were sent to Washington to get things done, refuse to do their jobs. They do not care if a bill is good for the Country, their main objective is to make it look like Barack Obama isn't doing his job.

Election day is coming very soon. It is time to tell these overpaid Republican members of Congress, who have great health care, to leave. It really is. Being a life long Republican, I am so disgusted at these guys. They do not represent me and most of my Republican friends have decided to vote for Barack Obama. What a sad day when the Democrats represent the needs of the Republicans better.


Anyone that can not see that Mitt Romney is for the rich, needs to get their head examined. His off shore accounts, his inventing of Out-Sourcing Jobs overseas and so many other things. Mitt Romney has no idea what it is like for Americans now. Everyone I know, that used to live the good life, is suffering. Everyone that I know that used to be living the American dream is now living the American Nightmare. Barack Obama knows this and Barack Obama wants to fix this. The Republicans would rather vote down every bill, even if they are good for the Country, to give the rich more money and to give themselves more money.

George Bush


The Republicans would have you believe that the Country is a mess because of Barack Obama. They twist and bend everything to fit their needs when the reality is George Bush and the Republicans ran this country for the rich. When Wall Street and the Banks failed, they saved their rich friends. They made it look like they were saving you and me. Then when Americans expected Wall Street and The Banks to do the right thing with our bailout money and make America whole again, they only looked out for the rich, while Middle Class Americans lost just about everything. These are facts and anyone that says they are not, is either very dumb or for the rich.

Denise Rich Gives Up America


Having known Denise Rich around 20 years, I am really disgusted that in order to save money on taxes, she would give up her American Citizenship. America has done so much for her, but the rich always want to be richer. I like Denise in a weird sort of way, she has always treated me nice, but on the other hand her lifestyle disgusts me. It really does and it always has.

Denise Rich does not know the real world and never has. Everything in her life has always been handed to her. She came from a rich family and married a rich crook, Marc Rich. In 1983, Marc Rich was indicted in federal court of evading more than $48 million in taxes. He was also charged with 51 counts of tax fraud and with running illegal oil deals with Iran during the hostage crisis. He became known as the fugitive financier, because the coward ran away. Then in 2001, President Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, but there was a paper trail leading to huge donations to The Clinton Library by Denise Rich. Denise Rich got her ex-husband pardoned, and she got away with it. 

Denise Rich also declined to testify to Congress, citing her Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination. This really disgusted me. If you did nothing, then tell the truth. Once again Denise Rich got what she wanted.


I went to many parties in Denise Rich's 5th Avenue Penthouse Apartment. Sometimes I was a guest, sometimes I was hired as a extra photographer. The extravagance amazed me. Million dollar paintings on her walls, billion dollar views of the whole city, servants everywhere. Celebrities performing in her living room, the finest champagne and food. When Denise would entertain, the world begged for a invite. She had publicity people always running around to cater to the media, and the press of New York City ate it all up, hook, line and sinker. They loved being catered too and they repaid Denise with great stories.

Aretha Franklin


I have no doubt that Denise Rich would never have had  a Grammy Nomination if it was not for her high profile entertaining of the people in power. Denise buys everything and everyone. From Patti Labelle to Aretha Franklin, she entertains them all. 


Denise Rich should just stay out of America with her very ugly boyfriend. She is claiming in the media that she is selling her properties. Let her do that. And while Denise Rich is at it, she should stop throwing The Angel Ball here in New York City, a event that is a charity for her deceased daughter. You don't want to be a American, then don't ask Americans for money. Start your fundraising in Iran, your ex-husband should have those connections for you. 

 Mitt Romney


This is the way it will be in America if we don't let Barack Obama fix this country. People like Denise Rich will just get richer and the middle class will die. People like Denise Rich will dine in the finest restaurants while we wonder how to feed our family tomorrow. People like Mitt Romney and Denise Rich will sail on the oceans on their yachts, while we drown in a ocean of debt. The rich get richer off our backs and when will we get smart and make them play by the same rules. This is what Barack Obama will do and Mitt Romney will only bend the rules some more to make the rich Denise Richer!

 Anti-Gay Mitt Romney

I am ashamed to be a Republican. I really am. Watching this garbage that the Republicans throw out at the media and the American public is a disgrace.

The Supreme Court has spoken. Why can't the Republicans start to concentrate on the real issues. They can't, because they have no real answers for anything. They flip-flop on everything and all they are concerned with is getting their power back. This Mitt Romney is a absolute joke. He really is. The new health care law was modeled after his Massachusetts law. Yet he sits there knocking down the new Health Care Law on every single interview. Is this all the loser has to talk about? Mitt Romney has no new ideas and his Republican cronies have nothing new either. They are the ones that destroyed this country. They allowed all their rich friends to destroy Wall Street and the economy, and then they want to be back in power so they can continue to destroy whats left of the American Dream.

All the Republicans talk about is the new Health Care Law. They swear they will repeal it when they get into office again. Let me tell you one thing. First of all Mitt Romney will not win this election. It is his kind of thinking that got us all into this mess and Americans are not stupid. Mitt Romney is just a rich guy looking out for the rich and more important, he is looking out for his own interest. He could care less of the people who are un-employed. He has the money and now he wants absolute power. This must be stopped and will be stopped.


I also can not believe these Log Cabin Republicans, the gay arm of the Republicans, have the balls to support these anti gay Republicans. Mitt Romney is anti-gay marriage and could care less about Gay Americans having the same rights as him. These Log Cabin flames, act like they speak for the gay community, but they do not. All they are interested in is the same thing as their straight counterparts. Power and privilege. Makes me wonder what glory holes they are all working!


Michelangelo Signorile had a very interesting piece in his column in The Huffington Post. It's about the privileged Mary Cheney who gives money to anti gay candidates, but she gets to enjoy the rights that everyone else has fought for. What it looks like is that she only wants rights for her gayness and not for anyone else.


 Barack Obama

I firmly believe Barack Obama could be one of the best Presidents in history if we can vote out this Republican Congress. I think Obama has the right ideas, but he can not get anyone in the Republican controlled Congress to vote on anything, even if it's a good bill. They just have one thing in mind, they all have said it from the start, and that is to win the election and get Obama out. They said this from day one of the Obama presidency. They never cared for the American people and they still do not. They let all these banks and crooks ( Their Friends) ruin this country and now they expect us to vote them back in to finish the job. It is so sick that all we have now are politicians who only care about the money from rich people to win elections.

If we do not vote these Republicans out of office next election, I think we will only have two classes of people left. The Rich and The Poor. This will be the end of The American Dream.
