Update III: The Third of July for Egypt. An announcement from the Egyptian army: Morsi is no longer president, constitution is suspended. Chief Justice of Constitutional Court replaced Muslim Brotherhood leader and Barack Obama pal Morsi. A good sign is that Coptic Christians along with conservative Muslims were at the side of the military during the announcement. Now Morsi is gone along with the Islamist Constitution. Barack Obama is probably crying. Turkey’s Erdogan better watch out or a house might fall on him too.
Update II: Big Media continues to protect treacherous boob Barack Obama. Recall that a big selling point by Obama Hopium guzzlers in 2008 was how Obama would make America popular in the Muslim world. Truth is America is hated by totalitarians and Muslims because of our beliefs and position in the world blocking their hideous ambitions. Not only has Obama failed to operate as advertised one of the big stories covered up by Big Media is how despised Barack Obama is by Egyptians protesting in the streets. Check out these pictures (click HERE) to see what Big Media is hiding.
Obama’s Brotherhood pal, Morsi, better start packing his camel. The reason: Egyptian military command meets as utimatum deadline approaches. The Egyptian military also issued a statement: “We swear to God that we will sacrifice even our blood for Egypt and its people, to defend them against any terrorist, radical or fool.” Almost sounds like a warning against Obama and Morsi.
Rumors are also swirling that State TV has been seized by the military. It won’t be long now. Just a few more hours and the Egyptians might have an Independence Day from the Muslim Brotherhood to celebrate on the Fourth of July too.
Update: Live video from Tahrir Square makes it clear the Egyptian people want the Muslim Brotherhood out.
Like their supporter Barack Obama the Muslim Brotherhood is wise in the world of treachery and deceit. Like their supporter Barack Obama the Muslim Brotherhood is ready, willing, and able to throw people under the bus. That explains the latest news from an Egyptian newspaper: Muslim Brotherhood asking for resignations from Prime Minister, Cabinet.
The Egyptian Army apparently will not fall for the Obama-level lies of the Muslim Brotherhood. The liberation of Egypt from the Muslim Brotherhood is dawning.
Our title today is from a banner held aloft in Tahrir Square. Millions of Egyptians today realize an Iron Veil is falling over their land. It is yet another “I told you so” moment from us to the cult of Obama that so believed in the nonsense of the “Arab Spring”.
Months after Obama Dimocrats and their affiliate Big Media blowhards came to realize that the Arab Spring was a disaster we 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?”
It’s almost as if Barack Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, doing everything he can with his speeches and actions to undermine Israel and the United States. Indeed even today Barack Obama acts as the protector of the Muslim Brotherhood, even against the Egyptian military and the millions in the streets.
This Obama support for the Muslim Brotherhood is not a new development. Barack Obama against the advice of Hillary Clinton, but urged on by John Kerry, decided his “brand” was more important than the interests of the United States in Egypt not only during his Cairo speech, but also during the “Arab Spring”.
Hillary’s “Arab Spring” warnings published in the New York Times about phony elections in Egypt went unheeded by Obama:
“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.”
Hillary understood the dangers to American interests and to Egypt. Hillary made clear what had to happen before Mubarak could be thrown out:
“In Munich, Mrs. Clinton and other Western officials put their emphasis on the “orderly” part of an “orderly transition” in Egypt. Mrs. Clinton ticked off the list of hurdles that had to be surmounted: Political parties had to be created, leaders had to emerge from an opposition that had been suppressed for 30 years, the Constitution needed to be amended and voter rolls assembled. [snip]
Administration officials insist that Mr. Obama was angered by Mr. Wisner’s remarks, not by Mrs. Clinton’s. But speaking to reporters on the flight home from Munich, Mrs. Clinton echoed at least part of Mr. Wisner’s argument, warning that Mr. Mubarak’s abrupt resignation could prompt a chain of events, stipulated by the Egyptian Constitution, which would lead to elections in two months — far too short a time.
A spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, Philippe Reines, said, “The secretary sees the need for profound transformation in the Middle East – and sees it as consistent with both our values and long-term interests.” But he added, “She is also very mindful of the challenges and seeks to insure it proceeds in a way where people’s aspirations are realized and not thwarted; where lives are valued and not lost.”
Instead of listening to Hillary’s warnings John Kerry was dispatched to wage war on Hillary as the New York Times reported at the time:
“Mr. Obama was furious, and it did not help that his secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Mr. Wisner’s key backer, was publicly warning that any credible transition would take time — even as Mr. Obama was demanding that change in Egypt begin right away.
Seething about coverage that made it look as if the administration were protecting a dictator and ignoring the pleas of the youths of Cairo, the president “made it clear that this was not the message we should be delivering,” said one official who was present. He told Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. to take a hard line with his Egyptian counterpart, and he pushed Senator John Kerry to counter the message from Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Wisner when he appeared on a Sunday talk show the next day.”
Barack Obama sent Senator John Kerry to “counter” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton via an appearance on Meet the Press.
American interests required the Muslim Brotherhood be kept from power. Indeed we recall well how we and others who shared our views about the absurdity termed the “Arab Spring” were mocked because the Muslim Brotherhood was at “only 10%” levels of support. But we made the correct historical analogies to warn that 10% was sufficient to seize power because democracy in Egypt was so fetal and the Muslim Brotherhood so wizened in the organizational abilities required to win elections.
Instead of concern about American interests Obama put his “brand” self interests above American interests by choosing to oust Hosni Mubarak immediately and without preparing for a transition to real, not faux, democracy. Now, one year after the Big Media/Barack Obama praises for the “Arab Spring”, which many presciently warned against, Egypt is once again at the precipice to disaster. Barack Obama is to blame.
This week we have had many examples of Barack Obama placing his own selfish interests above American interests.
Instead of praising America Barack Obama acts as the defender of Africa against America:
“Obama to Africa: Be wary of foreign powers, even United States
President Obama pledged $7 billion in aid Sunday to provide electricity to sub-Saharan Africa, as he warned Africans to be wary of exploitation by other countries, including the U.S.
As we have written, Barack Obama should stay in Africa and declare himself a god there.
When Obama visited the Robben Island prison shrine to Nelson Mandela he signed the visitors book on behalf of himself and his family. It was all about Obama, not the American people:
Obama is actually on Robben Island representing the United States – which is paying enormous sums for the trip – not his family. The occasion of America’s first African American president visiting the place where Mandela was imprisoned is historically significant for the United States, symbolically tying America’s own struggle for civil rights to that of South Africa and the world’s greatest living civil rights figure.
That Obama proclaimed himself and Mrs. Obama “deeply humbled” by the experience in fact adds an incongruously self-referential feature – and no small amount of hubris – to an event that should have little to do with the personal feelings of the Obamas themselves.
It’s all about Obama for the Obama cult of Obama Dimocrats and of course for Barack Obama himself. American interests be damned!
American interests require the immediate removal of the Muslim Brotherhood from power in Egypt. But Obama is now more concerned about the Muslim Brotherhood remaining in power than anything else:
President Barack Obama insisted Monday that he isn’t taking sides in the standoff between Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and millions of protesters who’ve taken to the streets to protest his policies.
But that’s not likely to be enough for many in those angry crowds, who seem firmly convinced that the White House has bolstered the Muslim Brotherhood leader, even as ordinary Egyptians — and some in his own Cabinet — have grown increasingly dissatisfied with his rule. [snip]
“The Egyptian turmoil stems from the Morsi government’s predictable power grab, which the Obama Administration has been far too accepting of,” House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said in a statement. “U.S. aid has failed to compel the Morsi government to undertake the political and economic reforms needed to avert this crisis.”
Rep. Ilena Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) echoed the criticism. “We should have been leveraging our assistance to Morsi to push his government to implement real democratic reforms – the ones these demonstrators have been desperately crying out for – from day one instead of providing aid unconditionally and legitimizing Morsi’s government,” she said. [snip]
U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson has become a particular lightning rod for demonstrators after saying in a recent speech that the United States was “deeply skeptical” protests would improve the situation in Egypt, and suggesting that the government’s opponents needed to show greater patience.
As protests swelled Sunday, some demonstrators waved signs with a red ‘X’ imposed on a distorted photo of Patterson. Street graffiti and at least one banner urged her to leave the country.
Obama has come in for his share of direct criticism from the crowds as well. Above Cairo’s Tahrir square, a large sign declared in broken English that the U.S. president supports “dictator Morsi,” according to a photo snapped Friday by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
The notion that the U.S. might be Morsi’s best hope doesn’t seem limited to the Egyptian leader’s opponents. Britain’s Guardian newspaper quoted an unnamed Morsi aide Monday saying that a drive towards a “military coup” was underway, but “won’t be able to move forward without American approval.”“
Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood leak their opinion that a military coup cannot happen without “American approval”. Immediately Barack Obama Rejects Intervention by Egypt’s Military. Amazing coincidence isn’t it?
Then we have today’s amazing coincidence as Morsi shrugs off military ultimatum as protesters surround palace. Why should Morsi worry when Brother Barack has his totalitarian back?
Then we have the Kerry/Obama State Department (recall it was John Kerry who was sent to Meet the Press to “counter” Hillary) instead of attacking Morsi is attacking the protestors in the streets:
”You’ve seen some of these photos of the ambassador, and we really find it abhorrent and reprehensible that people are sort of personalizing this,” Ventrell told reporters at a daily briefing. “The ambassador has very much stated U.S. policy. She’s one of our finest ambassadors, and we really find it reprehensible that people that people have personalized it, and a lack of understanding on the part of some that we really don’t take sides.”
Attack the protestors, defend Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood is the Obama policy in Egypt:
“President Obama today refused to call for Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to step down, despite massive protests against the Muslim Brotherhood-backed leader that appear to exceed those that toppled former President Hosni Mubarak.
“It’s not our job to choose who Egypt’s leaders are,” Obama said today during a press conference in Dar es Salaam. “We do want to make sure all the voices are heard and it’s done in a peaceful way.”
And yet, Obama’s withdrawal of U.S. support for Mubarak in February 2011 was a key factor in causing the Egyptian leader to step down.
Mubarak was a strong ally of the United States.”
If you want to determine what Barack Obama’s foreign policy will be, just think of what harms the United States the most.
