President Bill Clinton spoke before a small group at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia on Monday, mostly regarding the biggest challenges facing the world today.
The biggest short-term challenge to the world is job creation, asserted Clinton.
A country like Egypt graduates roughly 400,000 new college students each year. Yet, as Clinton said, there aren’t nearly enough jobs to handle the influx, which leads to discontentment and instability.
Clinton says the biggest mid-term challenge to the world is Iran’s nuclear endeavors, calling the situation “far more serious than anyone realizes.”
The biggest long-term challenge is global warming, said the unofficial leader of the Democrats.
“I just wish Clinton had addressed the troubling trend in politics,” says political intelligence expert, Robert Williams, who attended the event.
President Obama’s worth an estimated $12 million.
Mitt Romney’s total assets are worth roughly $250 million.
Paul Ryan’s net worth exploded by as much as 130% during a decade marred by one of the worst economies in history.
“It’s absolutely stunning,” says Williams.
“What Ryan accomplished during a decade devastated by a deep economic recession is virtually impossible. He must have been playing with a loaded deck.”
Williams just released the shocking results of his investigation into the secret affairs of the nation’s most prominent legislators.
While the investigation exposes – at times, even embarrasses – D.C.’s top brass, Williams admits that even he’s surprised by the findings…
“I now know things that very few Americans know. Shocking things. It’s scary, actually.
“Nobody realizes how many secrets the government is hiding from the American public.”
According to the U.S. Information Security Oversight Office, the number of new secrets (designated as such by the U.S. government) rose 75% from 1996 to 2009.
Over the same period, the number of documents referring to those secrets skyrocketed by a factor of nearly 10 – from 5.6 million to 54.7 million.
The United States presently has over 2.3 million national secrets (designated as such by the government over the last 10 years).
“Secrecy is spreading like an infection on democracy, and it’s going to affect the outcome of the election if we’re not careful,” says Williams.
Big government, big secrecy and big corruption walk hand-in-hand through presidential administration after presidential administration. Lately, the corruption is bleeding into the candidates’ personal checkbooks.
If elected, Romney would be the richest president in history.
While it’s not unusual for a president to be wealthy, we’re seeing a profound shift in the way the wealth is being amassed.
Throughout history, the fortunes of American presidents have been tied to the economic eras in which they lived.
But in the last few years, the performance of the economy is virtually insignificant. The money keeps rolling in, regardless. It defies all logic.
“If the American people can’t find out exactly what their elected officials are up to, then their elected officials are likely up to no good,” says Williams.
Roughly 854,000 people presently hold top-secret security clearances.
More ominous still, 33 building complexes have been built in (and around) the Capital Beltway over the last 11 years for top-secret use.
Williams spent 10 months inside of Capitol Hill exposing important secrets and pinpointing exactly where all the corruption evidence was buried.
Although the high-profile targets of the investigation would certainly have preferred to keep the findings buried, Williams isn’t breaking any laws by releasing this information to the public.
Besides, such shocking information should never be hidden from Americans. Especially when we’re all being asked to make an informed decision in November.
The United States Presidential Election is Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
