A Tale Of Two Countries – Egypt Awake, America Sleeps

In an attempt to defend his father’s support for British appeasement of Germany in the 1930s (this apologia is not discussed by those who seek to deify JFK) as well as to detail the rise of German militarism and fail of the British government to in any way block the coming conflagration known as World War II, John F. Kennedy in his last year at Harvard College wrote a lauded thesis which later became the book Why England Slept.

Profits from the British sales of the JFK book helped the citizens of Plymouth recover after a boisterous nighttime visit by the Luftwaffe. The United Kingdom itself eventually recovered from the consequences of its 1930s narcolepsy albeit in a much diminished status on the world stage and its own history.

Almost 100 years after after the dawn of the catastrophic long war we divide into parts I and II, America is fast asleep while the wolves gather.

In the fourth part of our continuing “unravel” series we asked a question which we are pleased to note is increasingly being asked, “Why Won’t Obama Demand Morsi Resign?”:

“Why won’t Barack Obama demand Morsi resign? Egyptian demonstrations? Check. Violence in the streets? Check. Government officials resigning in protest? Check. Egyptian government institutions such as the military and judiciary threatened? Check. Why won’t Obama demand that Morsi resign?

The only difference between Mubarak and Morsi we see is that Morsi is an Islamic extremist. Why won’t Barack Obama demand Morsi resign?”

Since we wrote those words Egyptian media have joined the protests, the Judiciary as well, and protestors have been shot dead in the streets. Obama? Obama is still bowing to Morsi.

Today, David Ignatius tries to explain the disgusting intercourse Obama is engaged in with Morsi while at the same time helping dismantle one of the most embarrassing pro-Obama arguments in answer to our question “Why won’t Obama demand that Morsi resign?”.


Ignatius asks the right questions:

How did Washington become the best friend of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, even as President Mohamed Morsi was asserting dictatorial powers and his followers were beating up secular liberals in the streets of Cairo? It’s a question many Arabs ask these days, and it deserves an answer. [snip]

And let’s be honest: The Obama administration has been Morsi’s main enabler. U.S. officials have worked closely with him on economic development and regional diplomacy. Visiting Washington last week, Morsi’s top aides were touting their boss’s close contacts with President Obama and describing phone calls between the two leaders that led to the Gaza cease-fire.

Morsi’s unlikely role as a peacemaker is the upside of the “cosmic wager” Obama has made on the Muslim Brotherhood. It illustrates why the administration was wise to keep its channels open over the past year of post-revolutionary jockeying in Egypt.”

It is insensible to call Barack Obama the main Morsi enabler then to change the argument to state that “the administration was wise to keep its channels open” to the Muslim Brotherhood creeps. The problem is not open channels, but enabling.

Obama is enabling the Muslim Brotherhood creeps – that is the problem:

“Probably thinking he had America’s backing, Morsi overreached on Nov. 22 by declaring that his presidential decrees were not subject to judicial review. His followers claim that he was trying to protect Egypt’s revolution from judges appointed by Hosni Mubarak. But that rationale has worn thin as members of Morsi’s government resigned in protest, thousands of demonstrators took the streets and, ominously, Muslim Brotherhood supporters began counterattacking with rocks, clubs and metal pipes.

Through this upheaval, the Obama administration has been oddly restrained.”

Barack Obama is enabling the Muslim Brotherhood, undermining American interests, moving the world closer to conflagration – all while America sleeps and many Egyptians awaken, possibly too late to do much good:

“You need to explain to me why the U.S. reaction to Morsi’s behavior is so muted,” one Arab official wrote me. “So a Muslim Brotherhood leader becomes president of Egypt. He then swoops in with the most daring usurping of presidential powers since the Pharaohs, enough to make Mubarak look like a minor-league autocrat in training by comparison, and the only response the . . . [Obama administration] can put out is [Nuland’s statement].” This official wondered whether the United States had lost its moral and political bearings in its enthusiasm to find new friends.”

Egyptians who desired freedom and went into the streets during what was described by American fools as the “Arab Spring” are waking up to the fact that they have been used as pawns by the well organized campaign apparatus of the Muslim Brotherhood and its enablers such as Barack Obama. Some very few of us never drank the Hopium of the nightmare sold by Obama as the “Arab Spring”.

As a Pharaonic dictatorship grabs Egypt and the Iron Veil falls over the Middle East Barack Obama is lying about his role in the Arab nuclear winter to come. Ignatius dismantles the defense by Obama Hopium Guzzlers to our question “Why won’t Barack Obama demand Morsi resign?”:

“The administration’s rejoinder is that this isn’t about America. Egyptians and other Arabs are writing their history now, and they will have to live with the consequences. Moreover, the last thing secular protesters need is an American embrace. That’s surely true, but it’s crazy for Washington to appear to take sides against those who want a liberal, tolerant Egypt and for those who favor sharia. Somehow, that’s where the administration has ended up.

Obama’s embrace of the anti-Mubarak demonstrations did not hurt the protestors so why is it possible to think that Obama demanding the ouster of Morsi is any different? It isn’t. A demand for Morsi to step aside would be welcomed by those in the Egyptian streets. Why won’t Obama demand Morsi leave and take the side of the Egyptian people? Why?

Ignatius is exactly right about what American policy should be:

“America will help the Arab world through this turmoil if it states clearly that U.S. policy is guided by its interests and values, not by transient alliances and friendships.”

In this instance American interests and values coincide with the Egyptian street. Why won’t Obama demand Morsi resign?

This past weekend Morsi tried an Obama style flim-flam by announcing his dictatorial decree is now muoot even as he issued a replacement decree which keeps in place the referendum on the draft constitution which will fully plunge Egypt into darkness.

American idiots who defend the Muslim Brotherhood because “after all they won the elections” don’t understand that the aim for Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood, as in the 1930s, is to use democratic means to destroy democracy.

Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood have as their first priority the policy of “one vote, one time”. Once they rewrite the Egyptian constitution they will never cede power. The names of those holding power may change, but the seizure of power by Muslim extremists will be complete:

“CAIRO (AP) — One of Egypt’s most prominent ultraconservative Muslim clerics had high praise for the country’s draft constitution. Speaking to fellow clerics, he said this was the charter they had long wanted, ensuring that laws and rights would be strictly subordinated to Islamic law.

“This constitution has more complete restraints on rights than ever existed before in any Egyptian constitution,” Sheik Yasser Borhami assured the clerics. “This will not be a democracy that can allow what God forbids or forbid what God allows.”

The draft constitution that is now at the center of worsening political turmoil would empower Islamists to carry out the most widespread and strictest implementation of Islamic law that modern Egypt has seen. That authority rests on the three articles that explicitly mention Shariah, as well as obscure legal language buried in a number of other articles that few noticed during the charter’s drafting but that Islamists insisted on including.

According to both supporters and opponents of the draft, the charter not only makes Muslim clerics the arbiters for many civil rights, it also could give a constitutional basis for citizens to set up Saudi-style “religious police” to monitor morals and enforce segregation of the sexes, imposition of Islamic dress codes and even harsh punishments for adultery and theft — regardless of what laws on the books say.

The spiraling crisis is threatening to turn into an outright fight for the identity of post-revolutionary Egypt, splitting the nation between those who want an Islamic state and those who oppose it, two years after the fall of autocrat Hosni Mubarak.”

Barack Obama is on the side of those who support an Islamic state of Egypt. That is what Obama’s support of Morsi means. The Muslim Brotherhood will destroy democracy via democratic means:

“For Islamists, the constitution is the keystone for their ambitions to bring Islamic rule, a goal they say is justified by their large victory in last winter’s parliamentary elections. President Mohammed Morsi, who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood, has rejected opposition demands that he cancel a Dec. 15 nationwide referendum on the draft.”

Use democracy to destroy democracy – that happened in the 1930s. It’s happening now.

In January 2011, as the Iron Veil began to fall in Egypt, we warned against the gathering wolves. We quoted Hillary Clinton who saw the danger of using democracy to destroy democracy:

“Everything is falling apart in Egypt except for the wolves. The wolves are organized and running in packs. [snip]

Hillary Clinton understands the stakes and is fighting to keep the Iron Veil from falling:

“Democracy, human rights and economic reform are in the best interests of the Egyptian people,” she told ABC News.

“Any government that does not try to move in that direction cannot meet the legitimate interest of the people.” [snip]

“We want to see an orderly transition so that no-one fills a void, that there not be a void, that there be a well thought-out plan that will bring about a democratic participatory government,” Mrs Clinton told the “Fox News Sunday” programme.”

Hillary Clinton understands what must be done to hold the wolves at bay:

“She warned that the U.S. would not accept two alternatives as potential ends to the current crisis: “democracy of six months or a year and then evolving essentially into a military dictatorship” or – a scarier specter for American policymakers –what she described on NBC’s “Meet The Press” as “faux democacy like the elections we saw in Iran…where you have one election 30 years ago and the people stay in power and become less and less responsive to their people.” [snip]

“We want to see free and fair elections and we expect that that will be one of the outcomes of what is going on in Egypt right now,” Clinton said.”

[snip]

We do not want to see a change or a regime that would actually continue to foment violence or chaos — either because it didn’t exist or because it had a different view in which in which to pose on the Egyptian people,” she said.

That’s diplo-speak to say: Egypt and the Egyptian people must be protected from the wolves.

The wolves are gathering. The Iron Veil unfurls, ready to fall, and plunge us all into darkness.”

Since we wrote that a year ago, the wolves have been feasting in Egypt and America. In Egypt the danger is clear and becoming clearer every day:

“Egypt is Islamic, it will not be secular, it will not be liberal,” thousands of Morsi supporters chanted Friday after the funeral of two men killed in clashes earlier this week. Witnesses say the violence began when Islamists attacked an anti-Morsi protest camp outside the presidential palace.

“Bottom line, this is a struggle between ideologies — the Islamic ideology moving with a clear plan with public support, and the secularists,” said pro-Morsi demonstrator Khaled Omar, his head bandaged from Wednesday’s fighting. [snip]

The Brotherhood is “unleashing its gang chanting jihadi slogans, as if they are in a holy war against the infidels,” said businessman Magdi Ashri, who opposes Morsi. “Their agenda is to monopolize power in Egypt, whatever it takes.

Egypt’s Islamist-dominated Constituent Assembly debated the draft for months, until most liberal members — and all the Christian ones— walked out to protest what they called hard-liners’ railroading of the process.

Islamists rammed through approval of the final draft in an all-night session Nov. 30. Of the 85 members who voted, 80 percent were members of the Muslim Brotherhood or the ultraconservative movement known as Salafis, or their allies. [snip]

He said that by defining Egypt’s political system as “democracy and Shura” — the Islamic term for “consultation” — the draft prevents what he called an “American or European” democracy that “gives the power of legislation to people and not to God.”

Before liberals and Christians quit the panel, Islamists convinced them to allow a number of crucial clauses that solidified Shariah, either because of bargaining or because they didn’t realize the articles’ significance, he said.

They didn’t understand it well at first,” he told the clerics, according to a full video of his speech posted on YouTube. “They only got it later and that’s why they said it was disastrous.”

Read the entire article to see how democracy is used to destroy democracy. See how fools vote to approve their own destruction then only too late they “get it”.

Also read Evan Hill’s report in The Atlantic about what is happening in the streets of Egypt as Egyptians awaken to see themselves surrounded by devouring wolves.

Egypt is waking up to the devouring wolves who use democracy to destroy democracy. In America the population sleeps and takes sleeping potions to sleep some more.

In 2008 Barack Obama and his pollutants used democracy to steal democracy during the “Democratic” primaries. In 2012 Barack Obama and his well organized army of thugs utilized race-baiting, fear and smear to win themselves a duplicitous victory. As we wrote on the Monday before election day:

“A Mitt Romney win on Tuesday will mean that race-baiting as a political movement will end – character, not skin color will determine our choice in leaders. A Mitt Romney win on Tuesday will mean the American voter believes in accountability as to elected officials and not smear and fear slime tactics as practiced so dexterously in Chicago. A Mitt Romney win on Tuesday means the American future is not the Greece present.

If Barack Obama wins on Tuesday all restraints on race-baiting, fear/smear politics, and unaccountable elected officials will get worse.”

Like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, like every flim-flam man in history, Barack Obama won. This does not mean it is a permanent victory.

If the Egyptian people can wake up it is possible that the American people will wake up – before it is too late. It’s a slim reed upon which to base our hopes for salvation – but this is the season of miracles isn’t it?

  1. ADmin always well researched. It is a terrifying situation that probably 95 percent of AMericans haven’t a clue.

  2. Great article admin but you are far more optimistic than me.

    “If the Egyptian people can wake up it is possible that the American people will wake up – before it is too late.”

    I think it is too late. Feels like my guts have been ripped apart. The only time I have had a similar sensation is when I discovered my ex was not the nice guy I thought I had married but a psychopathic “person of the lie.”

    I do not know all the facts and all the history of things but I do trust my gut instinct and it tells me “head for the hills.”

    The pos will allow no miracles except those approved by him. Like “killing” OBL.
    It is beyond depressing.

    Why doesn’t the pos do anything about Morsi? It’s because he supports the MB, shariah, unlimited power.

    For those who wonder what life is like for Muslim women read “Infibulation” by Esther Hicks.

  3. Admin

    ….If the Egyptian people can wake up it is possible that the American people will wake up – before it is too late. It’s a slim reed upon which to base our hopes for salvation – but this is the season of miracles isn’t it?

    Yes admin, it make take going further over the cliff to wake up the delusional ones, the day their taxes are raised, their savings are plundered while they watch BO and MO have a wonderful time on their vacations and Barry still campaigning at every opportunity he can muster up. As long as he keeps the country divided, they will not unite against him and his corruption. This will be a test as to how intelligent the American public is…so far, four years of circling the drain does not seem to outweigh the free pass of skin color.

  4. It is insensible to call Barack Obama the main Morsi enabler then to change the argument to state that “the administration was wise to keep its channels open” to the Muslim Brotherhood creeps. The problem is not open channels, but enabling.
    ————————
    This is exactly why I cannot stand Ignacius. He always manages to talk out of both sides of his mouth, where this adminstration is concerned. Journalists who do that are moral cowards and intellectually dishonest. When the propositions they advance are mutually exclusive, they cancel eachother out. They treat this guy like he is some foreign affairs heavyweight, why I do not know. I see this same kind of pussyfooting by Gerald Seib. But the time you get done listening to him, you know less than you knew before he opened his mouth.

  5. I remember the first time Obama sided with a newly self appointed dictator. It was when Hondorus’ Zelaya defied the nations constitution and claimed he would be eligible for a third term. The supreme court of Hondorus ruled against his decision which was supported and instigated by neighboring socialist dictators of Venezuela and El Salvador. Of course Obama supported Zelaya, it is in his nature as he was raised by and educated by left wing radicals who detest freedom, except for the kind that frees you from responcibility. It was proof positive that Obama has ambitions to be a dictator himself. His fathful followers would love to see that as well.

  6. Back to the cliff for a moment.

    I think the repub party is dead if they cave to the pos’s tax hike demands.

    Not that I’m a repub myself but I am avidly anti-dim. Without an opposing party I see no way to turn the tide and slow the rabid anti-white sentiment spreading across the country at the hands of 13 % of the population. It is appalling. I still don’t understand how the US turned into a country where it’s ok for Jamie Fox to boast about killing all the white people in his new film, where idiots like Bernie Sanders call non-dims traitors, where the MSNBC crew bandies about accusations of racism if anyone so much as sneezes in the pos’s direction. It is horrible.

    If whites don’t take a stand pretty d@mned soon it’s over. I don’t get why white people with kids can stand by and allow their race to be trashed 24/7. I am not a parent myself but if I was I would be sickened by this environment.

  7. Excellent Post. How can we see things so plainly that millions remain oblivious to? Or are we just stuck in the apathy phase? I feel so helpless. During the “Arab Spring” there were networks of support set up for the protesters, but now there seem none. Is there a way to fight this or do we just have to let it get so very bad?

    My suspicion is that a million white people are silent, but locked and loaded. The sale of guns and blammo has spiked since Obama took office. The vast majority of these people simply want to be able to defend themselves if the thugs whom FOX encourages to kill them, decide to do so. In that scenario, you cannot count upon the police to protect you. You need to have the will and capacity to do so yourself. What would help bracket the seriousness of the situation would be for Pew to conduct a poll to determine how many african Americans would follow FOXX’s advice, if they thought they could get away with it. The number would surprise some people. And they owe it to the race baiting tactics of Obama, the dimocrat party and big media. It is a real tragedy.

  9. BASIL99

    Americans were taught a pack of lies when it comes to the history and current existance of slavery. Slavery was and still is an African institution. Slavery existed for severla centuries in Africa before the Spanish and Portughese arrived on the western shores of Africa to by slaves from their Black and Arab Muslim owners. Obama is more likely to be the decendent of slave owners from both sides of his family than someone like me who is a second generation Italian American. And slavery still exist today in Africa. Women are slaves there. They are raped and traded like animals. Islam is slavery. It doesnt allow convertion to any other religion with the threat of beheading or stoning to death. Women and non Muslims are treated like animals. And even young Muslim men are not free, but must live the life their parents planned for them which almost always includes marriage to their first cousin! So if you have anyone in your life who is carrying the burden of white guilt for no good reason, educate them as to what slavery is and where it still exists. Educate them to how Obama has now brought slavery make to Egypt and other parts of North Africa. I was an indoctrinated democrat until 2008. If I can be awakened so can others.

  10. Or are we just stuck in the apathy phase?
    ——————————-
    The wages of sin–in this case, the sinner is big media. Their coverage has bamboozled the American public. Just look at the Real Clear Politics poll today, and you will have your answer.

  11. wbboei,

    Only a million? that’s not good enough. The number needs to be 100 million. I hope to join that group, soon. Got my permit app in and waiting for the judge. Two in this county. One interviews all applicants and the other approves all. Hoping for the second.

  12. LU,

    Me too. (helpless). This is far worse than the 2008 HRC defeat. At least I, personally, had hope over the past four years that we would get rid of the pos and things would improve. Now, it feels like it’s all over.

  13. Juliette,

    Absolutely right.

    The story of American slavery is the story of black Africans selling their own people. Period.

  14. On a lighter note: Glad to read my dinosaur skills and ornery convictions might not be so useless.

    http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/adventure/2012/12/have-gps-devices-taken-the-fun-out-of-navigation/

    Personally I REFUSE to get a GPS device for my car. I can’t STAND to hear the annoying voice and besides I like to figure things out myself. Guess that makes me backwards. I feel the same way about music, writing, exericise. Nothing like personal experience. No way to master anything without putting in time and effort.

    I do consult mapquest but then it’s up to me when I’m on the road.

    Oh, and I don’t use cellphones, either, except for the emergency use one in my car. Can’t STAND being available 24/7. Need privacy.

    Guess I’m dating myself.

  15. I cannot and will not believe that Hillay Clinton would be doing anything different than what Obama is doing in regards to the Muslim Brotherhood. All of this globalist remaking of the world is and has been cooked up at the United Nations since George H. Bush was in office. Everything that Glenn Beck has predicted has been happening. I have a friend who was a big wig government insider. Just before the 2008 election just after the orchestrated market crash he came into the resturant where I and a friend were waiting for him. He was aggitated and really freaking out. He said that we are heading towards a global dictatorship. Finally I thought, someone who gets it; we were in N.Y.. Then I thought back to a friend on the opposite side of the economic spectrum. He is a refugee from Serbia, an Orthodox Christian. He had a job in N.Y. with a catering company as a server. He told me that he was at this big global event in N.Y., I forget where. He said that Hillary Clinton was there and Queen Noor and other world leaders. He told me they wee discusing plans for global government and a world religion. I don’t doubt either one of these friends. They are not the type to wear a tin hat. This is happening and both Bill and Hillary are major players in this global scheme. Only the Tea Party Patriots are our hope for an AMerica that remains sovereign and free of UN jurisdiction. They would not stand for a bunch of dictators telling American how to live. The Clintons have already signed onto the UN’s Agenda. I’ll never trust them again.

  16. Unfortunately the Tea Party is just a distant memory. The press demonized, vilified and destroyed the base. Now they’re going after the repubs with pretty good success.

    We are doomed.

    Personally I will ever vote for another dim. Not that voting or not makes any difference these days in the results. Those are etched in stone.

    It is all lies from the politicians to the talking heads to the newspapers and the cable shows.

    I trust no one.

  17. I don’t sumitt to despair BASIL99. And I don’t believe that the Tea Party is history. It is a movement that represents the majority of Americans. Leftists cowards have done great damage to this nation but America is not finished. It is key to speak to young people. They have been brain washed. I tell my young neices and newphews that they will not have the kind of opportunities I had when I was young because we will no longer be a free and prosperous nation under Obama. When they graduate college and try to find jobs they will understand. Not all young people want to be on welfare. I have a family friend who’s son was going to go to graduate school in Tennessee to get his masters degree in World History. He wanted to focus on Egyptian history and the University he was all set to attend had a program that would send them to study in Egypt. He was planning to ove to Tennessee with his wife but because of current events in Egypt the University had to be canceled. This young man is smart enough to know why. Obama is destroying the future of our young people. They will turn on him just as the youthful idiots who voted for Morsare turning on him.

  18. so I live on the side of a valley in the country and today and for a while now we have been hearing gun shots regularly. today counted six sets of shots and late I saw a guy and his lady carrying guns while I was driving by. a few years ago we rarely heard gunshots.
    I told my wife that people are practicing/getting ready and she said probably so.

    its a sad state of affairs our country is in and going to get worse.
    why cant people see whats coming?

    Just in: Benghazi–Muslim Brotherhood Connection

    Well isn’t this interesting?

    Just in: Benghazi–Muslim Brotherhood Connection Spells Impeachment…

    By Linda Santucci

    No matter how many other articles/comments or references there have been out there ever since the Benghazi murders, this item below was specifically verified before it was released. There is more yet to come, once the proper Investigatory Venue is begun in the Congress (Senate+House, et al).

    Forwarded: I received this message yesterday from a trusted source. IF this proves to be true, it is “:impeachable grounds” PLUS. It also may help explain why Petreaus was forced out a few days before the Benghazi hearings coming up. It explains a lot of behavior by Obama and his administration…the pulled security, the “stand down” orders, and blaming that stupid video. The fireworks are coming. It will be the first of many disasters ahead. I held back till this morning where I got final info that this is real and NOT made up. How this plays out will be more than interesting…

    ———————————————————————————–

    Actual Message:

    According to sources in the State Department and the CIA, and intercepted communications from the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama “staged” the attack in Benghazi in order to create a monumental “October Surprise” that would guarantee him re-election.

    Yes, you read that right, and no, I’m not making this up. Obama, we now know, is and has been ‘working’ with the “Muslim Brotherhood” secretly to engineer the release of the “Blind Sheik,” Omar Abdel Rahman, the mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center attack.

    In Obama’s October Surprise, he intentionally set up the consulate to have “no security” so that Chris Stevens could be “kidnapped”, and held for “ransom” by Al-Qaeda (and the Muslim Brotherhood). Then, several days before the election, the plan was:

    to trade Chris Stevens for the Blind Sheik, making himself look like a hero, and all but guaranteeing re-election.

    This was one of the top reasons why Obama was so insistent on the Muslim Brotherhood getting $1.2 Billion in U.S. Aid.

    They were to have a primary role in getting Obama re-elected. That is why, even though they knew days before the attack that it was going to occur, ‘no’ effort was made to bolster security.

    It was intended to be non-existent. The Libyan security forces were intended to quietly slip into the night when the attack began. And they did, just as planned. That is why, even though 2 C-130U gunships, which were built SPECIFICALLY for this kind of attack, and which could have saved the lives of our people there and were a mere 45 minutes away, were ‘never’ scrambled at any time during the attack.

    There was to be “no resistance” whatsoever. That is why there were not one, but TWO “armed” drones flying over the consulate during the conflagration… our CIA operatives on the ground were painting targets because they knew air cover was available. That is why, even though requesting support and backup three times, their requests were NOT ignored, but were intentionally, specifically “DENIED” three times, and they were told to “stand down,” which basically means to “surrender.”

    That was part of Obama’s plan.

    They were not to fight back. That would potentially undermine the kidnapping effort and cause unnecessary “complications.” That is why, even though the CIA operatives and ex-Navy Seals were on the ground, providing real-time reports, and even though they were “lighting up” the source of the mortars attacking the compound with lasers, no gunships or support ever came. They weren’t supposed to resist.

    That wasn’t “part of the plan.” It also wasn’t part of the plan for one of the CIA operatives to intentionally defy Obama’s orders, and who rescued the body of Sean Smith and then stood up again, and engaged the enemy who was attacking American soil. It was supposed to be “clean.” Quick. Efficient.

    Kidnap the Ambassador and get out. Then Save The Day in the “nick of time.” They didn’t factor in a tiny group of highly trained ex-Navy Seals/CIA operatives… American Patriots and heroes. Even though they eventually lost their lives in the firefight, they managed to employ the full measure of their skills, and took out over 80 attackers in the process… which enraged the attackers, who were led to believe that they would encounter no resistance.

    THAT is why Ambassador Stevens was “raped” (sodomized), murdered, and dragged through the streets. In their warped minds, they believed that “they had been betrayed by the U.S”. yet again. They believed that Obama was their friend. They believed that they were going to get their beloved Blind Sheik back. And yet, here were 80 of their own… dead by American hands.

    Obama was asked directly in an interview if he denied their request for assistance, he refused to answer, and instead droned on with a canned response promising to “bring those responsible to justice.

    “Former CIA and State Dept. personnel are coming out now with damning evidence that indicts President Obama, and reveals the truth about what is going on. Hillary Clinton, who is now openly laying the blame at the feet of the President, after falling on her sword in a premature show of loyalty for the Administration.

    The “Video” defense was carefully crafted WEEKS in advance, to explain the attack. If this doesn’t outrage you, If you are not moved enough to contact your congressman about this, you are not worthy of your citizenship.

  20. OBAMA ADMINISTRATION PUSHING FOR UN RESOLUTION PROHIBITING CRITICISM OF ISLAM
    http://americanpowerblog.blogspot.com/2012/12/obama-administration-pushing-for.html
    This week, the United States meets with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in London to discuss whether speaking about religion can violate international law. The meeting represents round three of the “Istanbul Process,” an effort Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched in July 2011 in the eponymous Turkish city. The initiative’s goal is to implement non-binding UN Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18, which itself calls for the criminalization of various forms of speech concerning religion. The OIC, an association of 56 Islamic member states and the Palestinian Authority, represents the largest voting bloc in the United Nations.

    Q

    A Chinese group agreed to buy 80.1 percent of American International Group Inc. (AIG)’s plane-leasing unit for $4.23 billion in the nation’s largest acquisition of a U.S. company.

    The International Lease Finance Corp. acquirers, led by New China Trust Co. Chairman Weng Xianding, have an option to buy another 9.9 percent, New York-based AIG said today in a statement. The transaction, which values ILFC at $5.3 billion, passes China Investment Corp.’s $3 billion purchase of a stake in Blackstone Group LP (BX) in 2007 as the biggest Chinese-U.S. deal.

    The acquisition gives the group control of the world’s second-largest aircraft lessor as rising travel in China and Asia spurs demand for planes.

  22. Unfucking believable.

    Asshole carried the swing states based on overwhelming support from then non-religious affliated voter.

    And what was the issue that drove them to the polls?????????

    1. unemployment?—-no! (immaterial)

    2. the deficit?——no! (immaterial)

    3. foreign policy meltdown?—–no! (immaterial)

    4. erosion of the Constitution?—-no! (immaterial)

    5. loss of sovereignty?(immaterial)

    Well, then, what is it that drove these jackasses to vote for the asshole?

    Why, abortion and same sex marriage. What else could possibly be more important than that?

    What, if anything, can we glean from this collective madness, this abdication of the principle of self government?

    Three things:

    First, nobody ever went broke–or lost an election underestimating the intelligence of the American People.

    Second, big media drives the dialogue, and is a mouthpiece of the dimocrat party. Big media must be destroyed.

    Third, we have entered the age of identity politics, where the issues that will determine are future are immaterial to large voting blocks who determine elections. They are children.

    Benghazi Terrorists Were Armed By Obama

    ——————
    I wonder whether there is an executive order that touches on this issue. I am sure this is correct–how could it be otherwise, when we are saturating the middle east with weapons for anyone who claims to be a Syrian rebel. When and if the full facts come to light, it will be obvious that this was Fast and Furious on steroids. It seems to me that we are advancing the interests of the royal family of Saudi Arabia, to keep the winds of change off their doorstep, and to fight a religious war. This is NOT our fight, and Obama has been the great enabler.

  24. Referring to a comment in the previous thread, and made by Lu4PUMA December 8th, 2012 at 2:52 pm, stating [in part]:
    “One thing since the 2008 campaign, though is that the FEC does make them list the unitemized amounts in the summary reports and they are issuing notices to the O campaign on the overlimit contributions.”

    I really have to hand it to Lu because she managed to change some things Obama was accustomed to doing another way.

    “…Right now, each state has until December 14, 2012 to decide whether or not they will set up state-based health care exchanges. Each state has an option to choose one of the following:
    Set up a state-based exchange (that will be managed by the state)
    Set up a partnership exchange (shared management between the state and the federal government)
    Or do nothing and default to a federal exchange (managed by the federal government)

    “Because of how quickly the law was rammed through, many experts are saying that the federal government doesn’t have the resources to set up numerous exchanges in the states. Right now 17 states have decided to opt out of setting up an exchange and there are currently 9 that remain undecided. The more states that opt out of the state-based exchanges, the harder it will be for the federal government to fully implement Obamacare and the more likely it will be that we can turn back the clock and re-frame the health care debate. The time to put pressure on the federal government in regard to Obamacare has come to an end for now and it is time to shift our focus on the states….” Email then give map graphic.

    I know AFPPennsylvania is working hard on this as Gov COrbett is undecided.

  28. James Carville: 90% of Dems Want Hillary Clinton

    Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s decision about whether to run for president in 2016 will be key to the makeup of the Democratic and Republican fields in 2016, ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd told me Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week”. And James Carville – former strategist for President Bill Clinton – said Democrats are relishing the possibility that she’ll enter the race.

    “I think that, whether or not other Democrats run, it’s all going to pivot off of her. And even the Republicans to a degree are going to pivot off what she does.” Dowd said.

    With Clinton’s popularity across the board surging in the four years after her first run for the presidency, Carville says that the consensus among Democrats is that Hillary Clinton would give the party its best chance to win.

    “I don’t know what she’s going to do, but I do know this: The Democrats want her to run. And I don’t just mean a lot of Democrats. I mean a whole lot of Democrats, like 90 percent across the country,” Carville said. “We just want to win. We think she’s the best person and shut it down. And that’s across the board.”

    But Republican political adviser – and Carville’s wife- Mary Matalin said it’s unlikely the Secretary of State would be able to clear the field.

    “I wish she would run. But it defies human nature to think that Democrats, even though they are redistributionist and utopians, would not be competitive, that [Virginia Senator Mark] Warner or all these other Democrats who’ve been waiting in the wings are going to have a dynasty, since Democrats are always complaining about these dynasties, they’re going to have another Clinton step up, and everyone’s going to go, yeah, step back? I don’t think so,” Matalin said.

    Before any of you feel the need to jump in and once again talk about how you will never vote for Hillary, let’s just say we know how you feel and the 90% Carville is talking about doesn’t not take into account approximately 40%? of Big Pinksters.

  29. Everyone is talking about Hillary today, here is another one…

    What Hillary wants

    Never has so much been written (and spoken) about a politician so unknowable.

    Over the weekend, the New York Times published a lengthy piece about soon-to-be-former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and whether she might run for president. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who is regarded as a likely 2016 candidate in his own right, said Sunday that Clinton would be a “great president” if she decides to run. Democratic strategist James Carville took the praise a step further, insisting that “90 percent” of people in his party want Clinton to be a candidate in 2016.

    Lost somewhat in all of the hype around Clinton is a very simple question: What does she want?

    The answer is virtually impossible to glean since a) Clinton is a decidedly private and cautious person, particularly as it relates to her future plans, b) those who actually know what she may be thinking don’t talk publicly about it, and c) Clinton seems to be genuinely undecided about what’s next.

    Here’s how Jodi Kantor described Clinton’s mindset in the Times story:

    “Right now, aides and friends say, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s plan looks like this: exit the State Department shortly after Inauguration Day and then seclude herself to rest and reflect on what she wants to do for the next few years. Those who have invited her for 2013 engagements have been told not to even ask again until April or May.”

    Publicly, Clinton has been resolute if not Sherman-esque about her lack of plans to seek the presidency again. In 2011, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked her if she would like to be president; Clinton responded “no.” She added: “I had a wonderful experience running, and I am very proud of the support I had and very grateful for the opportunity, but I’m going to be, you know, moving on.” (Wordsmiths — and the Fix — will note that denying that you would like to be president in 2011 is not close to the same thing as saying you won’t run for president in 2016.)

    Privately, there seems little question that Clinton has yet to turn her mind to whether she wants to run again and/but those around her — up to and including her husband — want badly for her to make the race. (Bill Clinton cannot — and will not — ever get enough of politics. God love him.)

    But again, what those around her want is not the same thing as what Clinton wants. And, in truth, no one — or damn close — really knows what she is thinking about a second bid for president in four years time. Clinton has lived so long — and at times so painfully — in the public eye that she is a closed book for almost everyone. She has a first-class political poker face.

    Here’s what we do know. Clinton would enter the 2016 race as the overwhelming favorite for the Democratic nomination — buoyed by stratospheric poll numbers and the hard-won wisdom of her unsuccessful 2008 bid. She likely wouldn’t clear the field, but it’s hard to imagine a candidate like New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, perhaps the frontrunner if Clinton doesn’t run, staying in to challenge her.

    To be clear: A 2016 bid for Clinton is far from a sure thing; her numbers would drop the moment she re-entered the political sphere, and she would be subject to many of the same critiques she faced in 2008. But if she retains any desire to be president, it would be very difficult to pass up a race that looks tailor-made for her.

    Does she have that desire lurking somewhere in her? We probably won’t find out for another year (or so). In the meantime, we’ll write — and wait.

    Jamie Foxx Jokes About Killing ‘All The White People’ In His New Movie

    By Noel Sheppard | December 10, 2012 | 10:49

    Two weeks ago, Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx made national headlines when he called President Obama “Our lord and savior.”

    While hosting NBC’s Saturday Night Live this weekend, Foxx joked about how in his new film “Django Unchained,” “I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

    JAMIE FOXX: My name is Jamie Foxx. Give it up, give it up, New York City, Saturday Night Live. Come on, make some noise, man. New York City, New York City, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Queens, it’s crazy. I’m black, and I’m dressed all black cause it’s good to be black. Black is the new white. I’m telling you, how black is this right here? Nice fly, I’m saying. You know how I know black is in right now? Cause the Nets moved to Brooklyn. How black is that? They got black jerseys, black court. I mean, how black is that? And Jay-z is the owner, a rapper. How black is that? And Jay-z only own about this much of the team. But he act like he own all of New York. How black is that?

    And I got a movie coming out, “Django,” check it out. Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson. “Django Unchained” I play a slave. How black is that? And in the movie I had to wear chains. How whack is that? But don’t be worried about it because I get out the chains, I get free, I save my wife, and I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that? And how black is that?

    But I’m going to tell you right now, speaking of blackness, my President, President Obama is back up in the White House four more years. How black is that? And not only that, he’s so black, he was playing basketball during the Election Day. How black is that? But he was also late for his acceptance speech. Okay, all the white people, this is your turn – how black is that?

  36. Slavery alive and well in – Africa and Muslim countries.

    Born to be a slave in Niger

    By Hilary Andersson
    BBC Africa Correspondent, Niger

    Slavery continues to blight the lives of many millions around the world. Although officially abolished in some countries two centuries ago, people trafficking, bonded labour and child labour still exist.

    Niger nomads
    Slaves come from the poorest communities in Niger

    There are some places on earth that few outsiders visit or know about, vast empty sections of the earth where time has stood still for centuries.

    Niger is one of those places. It is a country that you can drive through for hours without seeing a soul.

    A nation of vast, barren and windswept landscapes, a country of people who live almost entirely off cattle, and off the labour of human slaves.

    Slavery in Niger is not an obscure thing, nor a curious relic of the past, it is an intrinsic part of society today.

    A Nigerian study has found that almost 8% of the population are slaves.

    You wonder how this can be in the 21st Century and why people do not know about it?

    We began a journey to find out more.

    Humiliation

    This article is from 2005 but nothing has changed in Nigeria where 1 million are slaves.

    And now America, if in doubt, watch the above video on the apartment leasing’s. It was like lemmings, all running to hide when the camera’s were on…and we turn our head and do nothing, except give support to the slavers through turning our heads and entitlements.

    I really can’t stand it.

  39. gonzo,

    Me either. I hate the pos and what he has turned this country into. The Jamie Fox’s “I got to kill all the white people,” the Eric Holder’s calling Americans shameful hypocrites, the JayZ’s and Beyonce’s “Take that Mytch.”

    How much more will whites take?

  40. Back in 2009:

    Eric Holder Calls US “Nation of Cowards”

    Attorney General Eric Holder just raised our hopes for his tenure: at a speech to his Justice Department, he called the United States “a nation of cowards.”

    Specifically, we are a nation of cowards when it comes to “talking about race.”

    “Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,” said Holder, nation’s first black attorney general.

    “America in the year 2009 does not in some ways differ significantly from the country that existed almost 50 years ago. This is truly sad,” said Holder.

  41. Slave masters in Mauritania exercise full ownership over their slaves. They can send them away at will, and it’s common for a master to give away a young slave as a wedding present. This practice tears families apart; Moulkheir never knew her mother and barely knew her father.

    Most slave families in Mauritania consist of dark-skinned people whose ancestors were captured by lighter-skinned Arab Berbers centuries ago. Slaves typically are not bought and sold — only given as gifts, and bound for life. Their offspring automatically become slaves, too.

    Al-Qaeda complicating anti-slavery drive in Mali
    West African country estimated to still have 200,000 slaves
    By Rick MacInnes-Rae, CBC News
    Posted: Nov 26, 2012 5:36 AM ET

    Since the coup that unseated Mali’s president, Amadou Toumani Touré, this past summer, most Africa watchers have worried about the growing influence of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).

    This week, western African states are expected to submit a report to the United Nations on how they would go about driving the Islamists out of Mali.

    Ibrahim Ag Idbaltanat, however, is preoccupied with how al-Qaeda feeds a more systemic problem: slavery. While Mali officially abolished slavery in 1960, an estimated 200,000 people are still effectively in bondage, owned by masters who deed them down through generations.

    Rather than wading into villages and spiriting slaves out to safety, Ag Idbaltanat’s organization is a lifeline for those who work up the nerve to run, or negotiates with their masters

    RI gets on my nerves. He wove a pretty good story but there certainly isn’t anything new in it.

    What really bugs me is the statement about conservatives not voting.

    “But millions of them stayed home…didn’t vote…and that was critical to getting Barack Obama re-elected.”

    I don’t think that’s true. I think the pos “stole” the (s)election.

    There was too much enthusiasm and momentum for Mitt to have lost.

  46. I was just having a discussion on the fiscal cliff and someone challenged me on Obama saying during the debates, before the election, that the fiscal cliff was not going to happen. Since I had to look it up, I feel obliged to post it in case anyone else has cause to debate with a bobot. Yes, the F’er said it.

    Exactly! I have been saying that the reason Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and Bath House Barry tried so hard to sell the American people the lie about a video tale causeing the masacre in Benghazi was that they were trying to gain support for the UN’s proposed ban on the criticism of Islam. Americans have been duped before into blaming Christians who disrespected Islam in some harmless way for the savage behavior of savage inbreed Muslims. And yet both Hillary and Barry’s approval ratings are on the up tick. This nation is a mess. But in a year or so people will begin to understand that the democrats are traitors to this nation and always have been.

    People have had four years—four years to figure him out, and it has not happened.

    Everybody keeps saying it will change.

    I say the people—over half of them, are impervious to logic, history and common sense.

    They lack the mental acuity to evaluate leaders, hence, they settle for the false canard of likeailty.

  52. I am so goddamned tired of tying to make sound logical arguments to people who are stupid, or in the case of David Sirota, clinically insane. It reminds me of trying to teach pigs to sing–it merely annoys the pigs. I sent David a nice email–he says he reads them all, so lets hope he reads mine. I took the quote from Lu about Obama being the money candidate–which presents an intractable problem for David. Why? Simple: i) David loves Obama, ii) David hates corporations, iii)the election reports clearly show that Obama is the corporate candidate–as if there was any doubt. There I going being logical with an illogical mind, if mind it be. If he thinks that one through, he may require a strait jacket.

    Clinton was expected to make news at the event by formally recognizing the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, the new opposition leadership organization put together last month in Doha with the help of the State Department, as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people. That designation would pave the way for the U.S. to increase its aid to the Syrian opposition.

    She was expected to leave Washington Monday, but initially delayed the trip for one day due to the stomach virus. Late Monday evening, her spokesman Philippe Reines said Clinton was cancelling the whole Middle East trip.

    “Since she’s still under the weather, we’ll be staying put this week instead of heading to North Africa and the Middle East as originally planned,” Reines said. “In her place, Deputy Secretary [Bill] Burns will travel to Marrakech for the Friends of the Syrian People meeting. We will let you know when she shakes this bug and resumes a public schedule.”

A new petition posted on the ‘We The People’ section of the WhiteHouse.gov website demands that the Obama administration cease all funding and support for terrorists and extremist rebels in Syria, as news emerges of 29 different Syrian rebel groups pledging allegiance to the Al-Qaeda affiliated Nusra Front, a group responsible for killing U.S. troops in Iraq and one that is currently the primary fighting force in the NATO-backed bid to topple President Bashar Al-Assad.

    I have missed hearing from you. Who knows what the new year will bring, but we will face it together. Come back soon.

  64. Admin, yes. A million times one million thank you’s. Reminder: I have asked before that you change your Paypal access to include credit cards. Not happy to report I have not yet read this post, yet have commented. Tomorrow though.
    Meantime I bring some insight on Corey Booker. Cannot locate the very latest broadcast since it has not yet shown up in a search. But here’s some previous analysis which tee vee ignores. This woman who challenged him is doing a great job. As reported at a wordpress blog, post entitled Booker, Mayor Of Newark —- Let His Mouth Write A Check Posted on November 21.http://suyts.wordpress.com/2012/11/21/booker-mayor-of-newark-let-his-mouth-write-a-check/

    In it:
    “The challenge arose when Booker and a woman who goes by the name TwitWit and uses the handle @MWadeNC began talking about the idea Sunday night while discussing the role the government should play in funding school breakfast and lunch programs.

    “During their Twitter exchange, TwitWit wrote, “nutrition is not the responsibility of the government.”

    “The conversation soon changed to food stamps.

    ““why is there a family today that is “too poor to afford breakfast”? are they not already receiving food stamps?” TwitWit wrote.

    ““Lets you and I try to live on food stamps in New Jersey (high cost of living) and feed a family for a week or month. U game?” Booker responded.

    “This is an interesting exchange. There are a couple of things to notice. TwitWit observes that most of the children receiving free breakfasts are already the beneficiaries of free food via the SNAP (food stamp) program. Booker then leaps at the opportunity to avoid that discussion and challenges TwitWit to eat off of foodstamps for a week or a month. Stupid, poor argument skills, and will embarrass Booker….”

    I put in a request to follow TwitWit; it is pending.

  65. Some of the poor are not so poor.
    I know a family hubby retired Army getting his pension.good.
    The grown child living with them on disability. Mom gets a check as caregiver.the kid gets food stamps
    So poor but doing alright in today’s world. 🙂

  66. Well we ain’t going to the moon, but sounds like the mini shuttle is used for defense…

    X-37B Launch: Air Force sends mystery mini-shuttle back to space

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (AP/Florida Today) – A top-secret mini-space shuttle has blasted off from Cape Canaveral.

    The Air Force launched the unmanned spacecraft Tuesday aboard an Atlas V rocket. Cloud coverage in the area threatened to scrub the launch all day, but the weather cleared just enough for an on-time liftoff at 1:03 p.m. at Launch Complex 41.

    The Atlas rocket and its Centaur upper stage performed flawlessly through the first 17 minutes and 34 seconds. The mission then switched into a classified mode, and an information blackout followed.

    That’s Standard Operating Procedure for classified military missions launched from Cape Canaveral.

    It’s the second flight for this original X-37B spaceplane. It circled the planet for seven months in 2010. A second X-37B spacecraft spent more than a year in orbit.

    These mystery machines are about one-quarter the size of NASA’s old space shuttles and they can land automatically on a runway.

    The military isn’t saying much if anything about this new secret mission. But one scientific observer, Harvard University’s Jonathan McDowell of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, speculates the spaceplane is carrying sensors designed for spying and likely is serving as a testbed.

    The two previous secret flights were in roughly 200-plus-mile-high orbits.

    The X-37B is capable of autonomous atmospheric reentry and landing, and the first two missions concluded on a runway at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

    Air Force officials say there is a chance the third mission will culminate with a landing on the shuttle runway at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

  67. Ayrault is right, in a sense, except that France doesn’t have so many “filthy rich” people and they’re parasites wherever they choose to live anyway, so good riddance. No need to get upset about it.

    When Mitterrand was elected, there was a big stink about investors fleeing the country. Rothschild picked up his marbles and went to live in California.

    At the time, the Germans said the investors were crazy and rushed in to fill the void. That’s what’s happening now: Qatar announced last week that it was investing €300 million in small and medium-size companies in France.

  68. Remember that Menendez sex story the press refused to tell? There’s more and it involves an intern who is an illegal immigrant AND a sex offender.

    And DHS instructed authorities NOT to arrest the other person until after the (s)election. Isn’t that illegal?

    😯

    NOT.

    Gov’t arrests illegal immigrant Senate intern

    By ALICIA A. CALDWELL

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez employed as an unpaid intern in his Senate office an illegal immigrant who was a registered sex offender, now under arrest by immigration authorities, The Associated Press has learned. The Homeland Security Department instructed federal agents not to arrest him until after Election Day, a U.S. official involved in the case told the AP.

  69. Hillary Clinton Says She’s Not Running in 2016 (Again)

    Not even Newt Gingrich giving us his best Nate Silver impersonation or Nate Silver himself being Nate Silver was enough to coerce Hillary Clinton from what she’s been telling us for the past two years, not to mention the past week: she won’t be running for president. “I’ve said I really don’t believe that that’s something I will do again,” Clinton tells Barbara Walters in an early clip released from Walters’s 10 Most Fascinating People special, set to air tonight. “I am so grateful I had the experience of doing it before. I think there are lots of ways to serve, so I’ll continue to serve.” As if that wasn’t clear enough, there’s one more denial:

    I just want to see what else is out there. I’ve been doing this incredibly important and satisfying work in Washington as I say for 20 years. I want to get out and spend some time looking at what else I can do to contribute.

    As late as last week, The New York Times’s Jodi Kantor reported, Clinton was still telling friends she’s not running — even though that Sunday front-page story was all about when and if she will. If you look far back as 2010, Clinton has been telling everyone that she isn’t running. But instead of listening to her, maybe because we think we know better, people like political over-estimator Newt Gingrich and political number witch Nate Silver have both come out this week and said that Clinton would immediately become the frontrunner in 2016. Which, yeah, obviously.

    “I don’t believe…” doesn’t sound like, “Hell NO, I don’t want the job and quit asking me!” 😉

  70. “I don’t believe…”

    No, Shadowfax, you missed the word “really”. What she said was, “I really don’t believe…” as in

    I really really REALLY don’t believe…” and you know how emphatic that makes her denial, I mean you really do, don’t you?

  71. Yeah, that is a nice photo. It’s so easy to catch her in an evil pose now, with her wrinkles. In most photos, she looks haggard at best.
