State of the Nation : Obama's Farewell Writing History

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.Listening and yet blogging while Barack Hussein Obama delivers his last State of the Nation address, as any sitting President starts on his administrations successes. Watching these speeches on television over the years one thing I've noticed was a change on how the applause was on this congress. The Speaker of the House who sits by the Vice-President seem to be real serious including the Presidential Candidates Republicans on the audience. In saying this, it's the first time I've noticed there were not applauding when the rest are. Over the years as a gesture I remember everyone was applauding or standing.

The President touched a lot of points from the Economy, Unemployment, Auto Industry, HIV-Aids to even Cuba and Bin Laden. Although such audience gesture might indicate agree or disagree, we should looked at the facts of Obama's case. First and foremost he was the first sitting minority as President, he started with one of the hardest part - A Recession, a post Iraq invasion and a climate to redeem trust in the Presidency.

I do want to note the differentiation of then Senator to President Elect Obama as a political figure transcending to a realist commoner leader. From depending Social Security towards his fourth talking point about the future moving forward. Democracy he said goes into a haul distinguishes the difference of the rich and poor  reminiscing his greatest frustration. 

I remember in my year as APEC Youth Representative and the last year of Bill Clinton's Presidency, the similarity of both siting Presidents is this transformation of the true reality of what's going on in America.

Even as a private citizen openly active in youth and political affairs then and now as middle age, you start off with all the ideals that you want to accomplish and over time you augment things, you learn, deviate, mature and transcend your vision towards the real time factors and prevailing conditions.

One ideology I'm proud of is when we started ADLE International in 1998 with the vision of affordability we have endured this vision 18 years after. It's because more than ever what I've seen is that Obama's disparity on the gap between rich and poor really affects a lot of students. This is why till this day we have special promotional prices for textbooks, etc..

Do we make money on this special deals, not really but it's about the vision and mission of what we started and Entrepreneurship is a long development process which one should be looking at the long term results, customer loyalty, fulfillment and   brand recognition. 

As I finish writing this, Obama has just ended his farewell Sate of the Nation. My take, regardless on how history writes about Obama, a salute to a visionary realist the greatest minority President the United States ever had.

America's Dreyus Nixon's Case to Trump's Present Scenario

America's Dreyfus written by Bestselling Author Joan Brady author of the Theory of War writes on the trial of the century during the Nixon years. Similar to incumbent Donald Trump, Richard Nixon also had a single aim in life, "Win".
In 2016 this book had so many reviews about the real story of Alger Hiss. Joan Brady believes that Hiss was innocent but thinks, as did many of his friends at the time, that he was suicidally naive about what he faced. Chambers had appeared before HUAC in 1948 and, in the fashion of the day, had produced a list of alleged communists in government service.
The main summary of this book is that it is about the dirty tricks employed by Richard Nixon and his allies in the late 1940s and early 1950s to secure the conviction of Alger Hiss, a former government official, on a trumped-up charge of perjury. 
Thus, the start of the discussion on the statements of conversations could have been taped, was just a strategy to ensure the loyalty of Former FBI …

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails



Touching on Hillary's campaign rift with the Democratic party and talking about the reluctance of supporters of Bernie Sanders in supporting Clinton as front runner sort of explained initially why people then thought they had a flawed presidential candidate.



The book discusses on Clinton's winning the popular vote yet was not really successful in getting a lot of Senator Sanders supporters. Although Sec. Clinton's campaign staff are her deep loyalist, she spent enormous amounts of time asking existential questions to them.



Yet in summary although the book centers around on the ultimate failure of Hillary, the problematic circumstances and fiasco has nothing to do with her.

Stalin and The Psychology Behind North Korea, Why It Is A Country Hard to Understand for many

The Real North Korea by Andrei Lankov published in 2013 talks about the birth of the regime in 1947 after the election of Kim Il Sung known as "Liberator of Small Nations Generalissimo Stalin!"
Thus, the book describes that since 1972, all North Koreans above 16 years old are required to patch a badge showing Kim Il Sung's visage when they leave their homes. Likewise Kim Il Sung's portraits were to be placed at every office and house. As it goes by 1980 portraits of his successor son Kim Jong Il were displayed side by side his father. By the 90's Kim chng-suk, Kim Il Sung's wife and Kim Jong Il's mother were added. There were special instructions on hoe such images were supposed to be maintained in pristine condition as one would be punishable should they be missing or damaged. 
Parts of the book describes how Kim Il Sung spent some years in the Soviet Union while the complete media control of the regime. This book authored by Andrei Lankov is so far I'…
