The Will of Alfred Nobel

By: Barbara

 The will of Alfred Nobel reads as follows:

“The whole of my remaining realizable estate shall be dealt with in the following way: the capital, invested in safe securities by my executors, shall constitute a fund, the interest on which shall be annually distributed in the form of prizes to those who, DURING THE PRECEDING YEAR, SHALL HAVE conferred the greatest benefit on mankind.”

Please note carefully the precise words Alfred used in his will “annually distributed in the form of prizes to those who, during the Preceding year conferred the greatest benefit on mankind” Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for……2008?

Alrighty then, what did Barack Obama do in 2008? What was it Barack Obama did in 2008 that “conferred the greatest benefit to mankind”?

Think Think Think

Will continues…

“The said interest shall be divided into five equal parts” -snip-… “and one part to the person WHO SHALL HAVE DONE the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”

Pretty clear here… “SHALL HAVE DONE” Past tense as in has done, has Achieved. The person receiving the Prize for Peace SHALL HAVE DONE IN THE PRECEDING YEAR(2008). Nowhere in Alfred Nobel’s will does it state it is awarded as Barack Obama Has stated his reason for accepting his prize as “A Call to Action.”

Nor does the will state as Barack Obama stated “The Peace Prize is awarded to “build momentum for a cause” Sad, that in the year 2008 the person that “did the most and the best work for fraternity of nations” was one of the candidates who spent:

 Jan-Aug 2008 campaigning for their party’s nominee for President.
Aug 2008 Securing that nomination with yet another speech about what he hoped to do IF the people of the US elected him in Nov 2008 and gave him the power in Jan of 2009 to actually do more than Hope.
Aug-Nov 2008 campaign speeches.
Nov 2008 elected POTUS, with another speech about his hopes in 2009.
Nov -Dec 2008…President elect.

How sad that in 2008….the most, the best anyone did for world peace was to speak about it. That can’t be right? No one achieved a thing, just talk, talk, talk about what they hoped to achieve.

Poor Greg Mortensen spent 2008 building schools in Afghanistan with the belief that “Books not Bombs” is the way to Peace. He even wrote a book “Three cups of Tea” one man’s mission to promote PEACE one school at a time.When Greg was nominated for the Prize he was called the ultimate Peace maker who fights terrorism and builds nations. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Mortenson

Greg, sorry you wasted so much time and energy actually doing. This ought to teach you and everyone else to Put down your tools, come on home to the US, where it is safe, and this year TALK about what you Hope to do. Yep, you don’t have to live and risk your life in Afghanistan. You can do it from a big fancy stage with some international symbol, like Greek Columns and get yourself a speech writer and a few teleprompters and you are good to go. You do not have to leave the US and put yourself in harm’s way and live in the bowels of the earth. Get yourself a nice comfortable hotel room with climate control, room service and a personal chef and a whole staff catering to your every whim in a big safe American City, you can step out every once in a while and speak about what you hoped to do to change the world.

The Nobel Prize will be yours in no time at all. How many years have you been working in Afghanistan? You may want to pass this advice on to Sima Simar she like you spent her time working to achieve equal rights for women and girls in Afghanistan and with the UN on human rights in Sudan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sima_Samar

The two of you could work, aaagh, talk together. The worst that could happen is you both will share the Nobel Peace Prize but the 1.5 million prize money will surly achieve both your goals of PEACE. So to all those who argue Did Barack Obama earn the Nobel Peace Prize? According to the will of Alfred Nobel the answer is NO.

I will end with the words of Alfred Nobel “and that for champions of Peace Prize It is my express wish that in awarding the prizes no consideration be given to the nationality of the candidates, but that the MOST WORTHY shall receive the prize, whether he be Scandinavian or not.” The Will of Alfred Nobel http://nobelprize.org/alfred_nobel/will/index.html

  1. If in 2008 Hope and Change were the basis for the committees choice, they obviously, did not do their homework!

    I always believed that to be called a humanitarian, that one must care about and consider the needs of those over and above your own needs and to improve their wellbeing and to keep them out of harms way.

    HOPE What hope? Where is the hope when your freedoms are being taken away from you?

    Where is the hope for bailing out everyone else except for those who are really suffering through these hard economic times and the ever growing group of jobless Americans?

    Where is the hope for those who have lost their homes or are getting ready to lose their homes?

    Where is the hope for our children and grandchildren and are we to tell them that there is no such thing as HOPE, that it is nothing but a “dream” and it no longer exists in America?

    CHANGE Nothing has really changed! We the People are nothing but tax I.D#s to this administration and this government to pay for all debts, their lavish lifestyle and disgraceful spendings until the day we die!

    We all once thought that those we placed into office, who represented the People could be trusted, but we were wrong! Corruption and treachery abounds on Capitol Hill and it has gone on forever!

    If these were considered as the two factors back in 2008 for BO receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, I would almost say that Alfred Nobel is now “turning over in his grave” at the thought of his beloved award being given to someone who obviously did not deserve this!

    I am sadden by the fact that there were more who were true humanitarians in every sense, who should have received this most worthy award!

    • Barbara pointed out that he was quite ineligible and you pointed out there were others who should have been considered – let me point out that just as he was handed everything else – he was handed this prize and no one seems to give a damned that everyone knows it!
      It is painfully obvious that this pissant has not earned one damned thing not in the past – not now nor will he in the future – so get ready whatever else there is to be awarded – he is automatically slated to get it.
      He is and always will be historic but in my eyes he will always be the first living affirmative action hero– nothing more than a real live cartoon character – an experiment if you will – a plaything — a toy that the rich white guys built just to see if they could pull it off.
      And the blacks have no idea that this puppet is on a bunch of white strings. A well paid slave to the almighty white dollar! They made him and they can and probably will break him- mark my words – do the blacks really think they are going to take over the country now? hehehehehhehh 4 -8 years then it’ over and they will be told stop whining you got you POTUS now go away!
      Then they may even throw us a token woman and we can dance around for about 4-8 years while the rich white guys laugh their asses off knowing they hold all the cards.
