imageLAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles®) – Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry characterized the recent shooting in Charleston as an “accident” during an interview on Friday, accusing President Obama of using the massacre, which claimed nine lives, as a pretext for pushing a gun control agenda.

“This is the MO of this administration anytime there is an accident like this,” Perry said during an appearance on Newsmax TV. The former Texas governor said the president “doesn’t like guns,” so “he uses every opportunity” to tighten restrictions on gun ownership.

Another Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, described the U.S. involvement in the Iraq war as an accident, saying that former President George W. Bush and his Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld accidentally believed that Saddam Hussein was concealing weapons of mass destruction.

It seems that Republicans have found the perfect excuse for everything that’s wrong with America and it’s a recurring theme that we will see throughout the presidential campaign season between now and the 2016 elections.

Senator Rand Paul is reportedly preparing a major speech this weekend in which he will describe the election of Barack Obama as an accident — twice over.


Manila, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Forget the ‘shock and awe’ that Baghdad experienced when the U.S. launched its first airstrikes that began the war on Iraq. It is no match to what Manila saw on New Year’s eve: widespread ground and air strikes.

‘Shock and awe’ (technically known as rapid dominance) is a military doctrine based on the use of overwhelming power, dominant battlefield awareness and maneuvers, and spectacular displays of force to paralyze the enemy’s perception of the battlefield and destroy its will to fight. The doctrine was written by Harlan K. Ullman and James P. Wade in 1996 and is a product of the National Defense University of the United States.

Filipinos were getting ready to wish family and friends a happy and peaceful New Year when at the strike of midnight, the whole metropolis was hit with shock and awe a hundred times the intensity that Baghdad experienced in 2003.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police were unprepared for the invasion and were unable to pinpoint exactly where the strikes started or who the perpetrators were. But it was a chaotic scene that lit Manila’s sky for seemingly endless minutes.

But as usual, the calm and peace-loving Filipinos took the attack in stride then proceeded to partake of their  Media Noche, the family midnight meal that is the tradition on New Year’s eve.


gty_white_house_replica_wy_141028_16x9_992Ebril, Iraq (The Adobo Chronicles) – The latest secret document to be published by WikiLeaks, the international online organization that has been uncovering classified information, reveals that President George W. Bush wanted to transfer the seat of the U.S. Government to Ebril in Northern Iraq.

It was purportedly part of the overall plan that began with the U.S. invasion of Iraq disguised as a search for Saddam Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).

The document shows that Bush was so confident that he could find WMD to justify his desire to colonize Iraq that he ordered the construction of a White House replica in Ebril.  His plan was to occupy the “other” White House in Ebril for the rest of his presidency. Bush is known to fancy desert weather.

Following the latest leak, ABC News went in search of the  White House replica in Ebril (see photo), and found that it was never fully completed.  It is still undergoing the final touches but it is now owned by a prominent Kurdish businessman.

So the next time you see a photograph of the White House, it may not be the one on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
