Two more Americans executed by our friends.

 I'm sorry, but there is no other way to describe it in my opinion. These people are not our friends and we cannot buy their friendship. They are executing our soldiers wholesale and this administration and their minions at the Pentagon are doing NOTHING!

We need to pull all of our troops and replace them with nuclear tipped tomahawk cruise missiles. End of story.


An Afghan soldier turned his gun on American troops at a checkpoint in the country's east, killing two Americans and at least two fellow members of Afghanistan's army in a shooting that marked both the continuance of a disturbing trend of insider attacks and the 2,000th U.S. troop death in the long-running war, officials said Sunday.
The string of insider attacks is one of the greatest threats to NATO's mission in the country, endangering a partnership key to training up Afghan security forces and withdrawing international troops.
Saturday's shooting took place at an Afghan army checkpoint just outside a joint U.S.-Afghan base in Wardak province, said Shahidullah Shahid, a provincial government spokesman.
"Initial reports indicate that a misunderstanding happened between Afghan army soldiers and American soldiers," Shahid said. He said investigators had been sent to the site to try to figure out what happened.
An Afghan official speaking on condition of anonymity said three Afghan soldiers were killed in the clash. It was not clear if the assailant was among the dead.

Obama financing Islam with money we don't have

 I wonder how many jobs in America could have been produced with a half a billion dollars? I mean....if we are going to be spending money that we don't have, maybe we should at least make an effort to spend it on something worthwhile.

Scratch that! Obama;s bowing and scraping to the Muslims is worthwhile right? Quick! Someone check the leftist meme! Someone check with the complicit mainstream media! Meanwhile, another half a billion dollars of money that your ass and my ass are on the line for is going out the door to finance our enemies.

U.S. Move to Give Egypt $450 Million in Aid Meets Resistance

The Obama administration notified Congress on Friday that it would provide Egypt’s new government an emergency cash infusion of $450 million, but the aid immediately encountered resistance from a prominent lawmaker wary of foreign aid and Egypt’s new course under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The aid is part of the $1 billion in assistance that the Obama administration has pledged to Egypt to bolster its transition to democracy after the overthrow last year of the former president, Hosni Mubarak. Its fate, however, was clouded by concerns over the new government’s policies and, more recently, the protests that damaged the American Embassy in Cairo.
The United States Agency for International Development notified Congress of the cash infusion on Friday morning during the pre-election recess, promptly igniting a smoldering debate over foreign aid and the administration’s handling of crises in the Islamic world.
An influential Republican lawmaker, Representative Kay Granger of Texas, immediately announced that she would use her position as chairwoman of the House appropriations subcommittee overseeing foreign aid to block the distribution of the money. She said the American relationship with Egypt “has never been under more scrutiny” than it is in the wake of the election of President Mohamed Morsi, a former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.
“I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and I cannot support it at this time,” Ms. Granger said in a statement that her office issued even before the administration announced the package.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, speaking at a meeting of the Group of 8 nations in New York, said on Friday that the world needed to do more to support the governments that have emerged from the Arab Spring uprisings, including those in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia.

It's not Obama's fault.

It's not Obama's fault, it never is. there is always someone else responsible for the shortcomings of this president.

Once again, Barack Obama steps out and makes a call and once again he is wrong. Does anyone care? Certainly not the forgiving complicit American media. Look closely at the prestidigitation going on with the puppet masters of mainstream media folks. Not once have they seriously questioned the failures of this administration or middle east policy or the fact that those failures led to the attack and the death of four Americans in Libya, including our ambassador.

Now we have the fall guy stepping forward to take the hit and assert that it really was an intelligence failure. Really? I seem to recall those who wanted to assert intelligence failure after 9/11 too. Back when it really was plausible and believable. The sycophants of mainstream media may want America to believe this hustle, but I don't and I know that I am not alone.

 All aboard! The #1600 is coming through! Pay no attention to that bump in the ride. From time to time casualties find themselves under this bus, but it keeps on going.

Intelligence office says it got Libya attack wrong, not White House

 Benghazi consulate destruction AP -cropped-
 Extremists from groups linked to al Qaida struck the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in a “deliberate and organized terrorist attack,” the top U.S. intelligence agency said Friday, as it took responsibility for the Obama administration’s initial claims that the deadly assault grew from a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam video.
The unusual statement from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence appeared to have two goals: updating the public on the latest findings of the investigation into the assault, and shielding the White House from a political backlash over its original accounts.
“In the immediate aftermath (of the assault), there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in Cairo,” spokesman Sean Turner said in the statement. “We provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of Congress, who used that information to discuss the attack publicly.”

So who pays?

 Since the end of WWII, the answer to that question has always  been 'government.'

Government pays for everything right? But who is government and where do they get the money to pay for everything.  Since the end of WWII, the government has increasingly gotten the money from borrowing and now that the borrowing has reached unsustainable levels, the new mantra of the who pays leftist has become 'the other guy.' More specifically, the 'rich guy.'

But do American really buy all that? Something tells me no. 
A large majority of likely voters believes all Americans should pay some federal income tax -- even if it is as little as one percent of what they make.
Seventy-nine percent say everyone should pay something, according to a Fox News poll released Thursday.  That includes 85 percent of Republicans, 83 percent of independents and 71 percent of Democrats.
According to the IRS, last year approximately 41 percent of tax filers did not pay federal income tax.  The Tax Policy Center estimates that will increase to 46 percent this year.
Most voters (73 percent) are at least somewhat familiar with the widely-broadcast videotape of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney talking about “47 percent of Americans” and the number of people paying no federal income tax.  Romney also talks about his concern that the country is becoming an entitlement society and that many are too dependent on government.  Journalists and pundits speculated the tape would damage Romney’s campaign.  Yet a 63-percent majority thinks the substance of Romney’s comment about dependence on government is mostly (36 percent) or somewhat true (27 percent).
Three out of four voters believes the “average American” is at least somewhat dependent on government (76 percent), while less than a third says they personally are (31 percent).  

And here are the French about to try the the ultimate socialist coup. A 75% tax on the evil rich.
At some point the corporate cash cows and the evil golden egg layers will also go belly up or go under. But the socialists never seem to nderstand that reality.

The French government revealed a tough 2013 budget on Friday that seeks to tackle a €37 billion deficit with tax rises and deep spending cuts as unemployment tops three million and the economy teeters on the brink of recession.

By FRANCE 2 / Shirli SITBON (video)
France on Friday unveiled action to plug a 37-billion-euro hole in its public finances with the toughest package of tax rises and spending cuts the country has known in an economic downturn.
The 2013 budget adopted by President Francois Hollande's cabinet commits the ruling Socialists to an austerity programme at a time when the economy is teetering on the brink of recession.
Ministers defended measures that included a 75 percent top tax rate as unavoidable if France is to get its finances under control and meet European Union deficit targets deemed essential to avoid the collapse of the euro single currency.
But opposition critics derided a budget that will take billions out of the economy at a time when unemployment is close to record highs and contested government claims that the richest ten percent would bear the brunt of the pain.
"France is headed into the wall," warned Bruno Le Maire of the main opposition UMP party. Former budget minister Valerie Pecresse claimed: "This budget means 100 percent of French workers will be paying higher taxes."

Every American who cares about this country should watch this.

this video speaks for itself. Watch and beware..

Finally, some truth about American media

Finally, the real truth about media that intelligent people have known for years.  Walter Cronkite mastered the technique of media manipulation of thought and opinions during the Viet Nam war. As a result, as far as I am concerned, he and those like him were directly responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans in Vietnam.

Fast forward forty five years and we are seeing the culmination of their manipulation that is resulting in the destruction of America.

The great media slide continues

The distrust of the media becomes total. That’s hardly news to anyone, except to the clueless editors and publishers of the big newspapers and the big mules of the television networks, who see their audiences shrinking and wonder why.

A new survey by Gallup asked Americans how much trust and confidence they have in the mass media – newspapers, television and radio – when it comes to reporting the news fully, accurately and fairly: a great deal, a fair amount, not very much, or none at all. The result shows that “trust” disappeared long ago. Trust becomes disgust.
Gallup has been taking this measurement over the past decade or so, and the erosion of trust has been consistent and steady since at least 1998. Twelve years ago, 53 percent of Americans told Gallup that they had “a great deal” or at least “a fair amount” of trust in the media. By this year, only 40 percent of Americans put their trust in newspapers, television and radio to tell them what’s going on in the world. A remarkable 60 percent said they had “not very much” trust or “none at all.”
This should frighten editors and publishers, but it won’t. With few exceptions, they’re locked in to their high-minded prejudices and the noble conceit that the role of the media is not to report the news but to tell readers, viewers and listeners what to think about the news. This trend is vividly illustrated by the coverage of the presidential campaign this year. This latest survey was taken in the second week of September, so it’s hot off the press.
The results work out to a pretty miserable “favorable percentage.” If the media were a baseball team, it would be mired so deep in the cellar that it couldn’t even see next year. When Gallup asked these questions in the l970s, when the Watergate scandal was in full bloom with a new sensation across the front page every morning, the percentage of those who had a great deal of trust in the media was consistently in the high 70’s. Even allowing for the usual partisan divide – Gallup finds that Democrats, enjoying the liberal stroking of their “good” prejudices, alone in their approval of the press – this is a disastrous portent for the future of the mainstream media.
Two examples from the week’s news illustrate how and why. Mitt Romney finally released the awaited dump of information on his tax returns, after Sen. Harry Reid’s fanciful accusation that Mr. Romney did not pay any taxes for six years obsessed the media for weeks. The dump revealed that Mr. Romney had actually paid more than his fair share of taxes and that he gave away nearly 30 percent of his earnings to charity.
This compares to President Obama's 21 percent for charity -- and only 1.5 percent from Joe Biden, the miserly old uncle in the attic. Joe’s talent for squeezing every penny until Abe squeals recalls Bill Clinton’s taking deductions for old underwear he gave to charity. (To be fair, Bubba’s skivvies were little worn, since most of the time they were around his ankles.)
The reporters and pundits who were so obsessed with Mr. Romney’s taxes mostly passed on “analyzing” these facts. But the far more serious sin the media ignored was the debacle in Libya, where Islamic terrorists killed the American ambassador who, despite fervent pleas, had been left stranded in a hostile land without sufficient security.
For days the president, his secretary of state and the ambassador to the United Nations scoffed at the notion that the terrorism was the work of terrorists, and insisted it was spontaneous rioting by devout Muslims angry about a video they had never seen. It couldn’t have been the work of terrorists, because Mr. Obama had gone to Cairo as soon as he was inaugurated to bow to the imams and apologize for America being America. Nobody was any longer mad at us.
The big media had no interest in following the story; the celebrity journalists knew the president and they knew he was a stout fellow. He meant well and deserved a second term. Everybody knew that. When Philippe Reines, who holds Hillary Clinton’s horse at the State Department, was questioned closely about why the administration thought it necessary to tell such whoppers about the death of an ambassador, he blew his stack and resorted to trite schoolyard vulgarity.

The Obama administration finally conceded that it had been trying to sell a lie about what really happened in Libya, exposed by a few brave dissenters to the media consensus. Dissent was the work that all reporters and pundits once did, back in the day when “the press” was trusted to do its job. The fatal slide continues.

The cost of Obama's reign

Someone once remarked when told of the people's suffering: "Let them eat cake."

Surprising the similarities to modern day events in my opinion . 

So let's see. In the UK, we have a queen and her husband the prince. Two princes as children, two more as grand children. More dukes and duchesses (cousins) than you can shake a stick at? And all of that comes in at a cost roughly of 1/24th of the reign of the Obama's in America. Anyone else other than me bothered by that?

Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing, housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks.

In comparison, British taxpayers spent just $57.8 million on the royal family.
Author Robert Keith Gray writes in “Presidential Perks Gone Royal” that Obama isn’t the only president to have taken advantage of the expensive trappings of his office. But the amount of money spent on the first family, he argues, has risen tremendously under the Obama administration and needs to be reined in.

Gray told The Daily Caller that the $1.4 billion spent on the Obama family last year is the “total cost of the presidency,” factoring the cost of the “biggest staff in history at the highest wages ever,” a 50 percent increase in the numbers of appointed czars and an Air Force One “running with the frequency of a scheduled air line.”

“The most concerning thing, I think, is the use of taxpayer funds to actually abet his re-election,” Gray, who worked in the Eisenhower administration and for other Republican presidents, said in an interview with TheDC on Wednesday.

Obama gave us a phone!

Here is an interesting testimonial from an Obama supporter.

Obama's designated hitter to challenge the curve

There is a new Clint Eastwood movie in theaters and perhaps his talking to the chair moment at the republican convention isn't the only irony involving Eastwood and the Obama administration of late. Clint's new film "Trouble with the curve," could very easily signal an ever increasing reality concerning the Obama administration and its failures to handle tough pitches in middle eastern policy.

Obama has trouble with the curve of leadership that is for certain. To tell the truth, using a purely baseball metaphor, this guy can't hit a damn thing that isn't softball sized and lobbed down the middle for him to tag to the applause of the sycophants and party zombies who still think he is the messiah. .

Hence Hillary Clinton's re-emergence onto the big stage this week as a designated hitter.  This is the same woman who ran against Obama in 2008 and who would have been the president absent the complicit conspiracy of American media and Chicago politics via subversive political shadow parties like Obama's new party channeled by the likes of Bill Ayers.

Yet here Hillary is once again. Come to step to the plate and attempt to save the game in the middle of the 8th, with two outs and the world pitching curve balls at the Chi town hustler's team.  Think about it. Should we root for Hillary? Should we hope that she can make chicken salad from chicken manure? Should we support that which we know to be wrong headed and dangerous middle eastern policy by a demonstrably failed administration? I don't thinks so. As Clint aptly pointed out, sometimes when the guy isn't doing the job, you just have to let him go.

I am hoping America remembers that come six weeks from now.

The State Department confirmed late Wednesday that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will meet in New York on Thursday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after he delivers a speech to the U.N. General Assembly likely to focus heavily on the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran.

The meeting, which arrives amid heightened concern in Washington about the possibility that Israel is preparing a pre-emptive military strike against Iran, rounds out a week in which Mrs. Clinton has taken the lead for the Obama administration in connecting face to face with Middle Eastern leaders after the widespread anti-U.S. demonstrations that swept the region.

While past U.S. presidential election years have seen incumbents from both sides of the isle avoid the hectic schedule — and sensitive politics — associated with such high-level U.N. meetings, Mr. Obama has faced harsh criticism for opting to personally avoid them this week.

In his place, Mrs. Clinton has met with, among others, Presidents Mohammed Morsi of Egypt, Asif Ali Zardari of Pakistan and Mohamed Magariaf of Libya — three nations in which the anti-U.S. demonstrations tied to the recent YouTube clip denigrating Islam’s Prophet Mohammad were the most fierce this month.

A Toy Train in Space

Found this over at Brutally Honest. Too damn cook!

A journalist perspective on free speech

Here we have a woman who is represented as a journalist and someone who is a paid pundit on by several networks news agencies. This is how she sees freedom of speech in practice in America.

Freedom of speech provides (or should provide) the ability of anyone who disagrees, to destroy the property of others. Could acting and reacting violently to opposing speech be too far removed from her much sought after Egyptian perspective? I think not. I think that she is a product of her heritage and her culture and I think what you are seeing in this video is indicative of those influences.

Look closely America, this is what your mass media looks like in America today. A mirror image of the Nirvana perspectives of egalitarian representations that permeate every level of our society. Regardless of the reality of underlying hate and prejudice that many of these so called professionals possess, they are sought out and sought after by American media as if they are brilliant philosophers on societal evolution and politics.

In a word? BS! Or.....I should an acronym.

Mona Eltahawy has been arrested for defacing an anti-Muslim ad in the New York subway system. The video shows her spraying pink paint on the ad while a supporter of the ad tries to block her. She's a journalist for censorship.

Eltahawy, a former Reuters correspondent, has been a recent favorite of CNN and MSNBC’s weekend morning shows to discuss Egypt, and she often smears together the Islamist “right wing” and the American right wing, as she did on Melissa Harris-Perry just 11 days ago [video and transcript below]:

ELTAHAWY: We [Egyptians] have a president who is trying to establish his position somewhere in the middle and we have a group that is trying to establish themselves on the right wing. And you`re having a similar situation in the U.S. We are coming up to elections now in less than two months. There is a right wing fringe there as well. So, you`ve got a right wing and a right wing. Both minorities, both trying to provoke people and a whole lot of people with very, very, sometimes legitimate grievances, but sometimes utterly senseless grievances, being caught in the middle.
Eltahawy was even featured on the September 15 NBC Nightly News decrying America’s long-term support for Egyptian dictators. Here’s how the New York Post characterized the subway fight:

Moon river no more

 We have lost another one. Most who grew up in the 60's remember those specials and his weekly show and that beautiful voice. Most certainly a different time in America and a time when most of us were proud to be Americans. We will miss you Andy. Rest in peace

 Andy Williams performs in 2004 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Andy Williams, 'Moon River' singer, dies at 84

Andy Williams, whose soothing baritone and relaxed performing style made him one of America's top pop vocalists and a popular TV variety-show host in the 1960s when he recorded hits such as "Moon River" and "Days of Wine and Roses," has died. He was 84.

Williams, who announced in late 2011 that he had been diagnosed with bladder cancer, died Tuesday at his home in Branson, Mo., his family announced.
The Iowa-born Williams began singing professionally as a boy with his three older brothers in the 1930s, and he went solo when the quartet broke up in the early `50s.
After becoming a regular featured singer on Steve Allen's "Tonight" show in 1954, Williams had hits with songs such as "Canadian Sunset," "Butterfly," "Are You Sincere," "Hawaiian Wedding Song" and "The Village of St. Bernadette."
He continued to turn out hits in the 1960s and `70s, including "Can't Get Used to Losing You," "Dear Heart," "Charade," "Music to Watch Girls By" and "(Where Do I Begin) Love Story."
The singer hosted "The Andy Williams Show" on NBC from 1962 to 1967. After doing three specials a year for two years, he returned to the weekly series from 1969 to 1971.
"The Andy Williams Show" won three Emmy Awards, and its casual, sweater-wearing host received two Emmy nominations.
"In some cases, people who go on television, their record sales drop off; mine seemed to go up," Williams told the Orlando Sentinel in 1991.
"I think it's because the music is kind of soft and easy and it's not jamming down anybody's throat. It's just there and people find it pleasant and like it, and they go out and buy the albums."

The flag of his father


I am sorry, but this really pisses me off!

I suppose? This latest effort of team Obama goes with the "Dreams of my father" Obama collection of nuanced arrogance.

I have been seeing this flag represented in various sources for the past week or so across media reports. I literally thought that it was some slam representation aimed at the Obama camp by well meaning but over the top opposition groups.

Little did I know.

And now I come to find out that yes, this is a real rendition of their version of America's flag, made available on the Obama campaign website no less as a fund raiser. And once again the allies of hope have closed ranks to explain away the arrogance and any connectivity to the man's arrogance and the reality of how these people view this nation and its symbols. .

See Snopes

"the one organizing principle has been Islam.'"

Here is the president of the United States speaking of the recent attacks on our embassy in Libya and the murder of our ambassador as  bumps in the road, but more telling is his reference "the one organizing principle has been Islam.the one organizing principle has been Islam.'

Obama describes murder of U.S. ambassador to Libya and Mid East violence as 'bumps in the road'

President Barack Obama referred to recent events in the Middle East, including violent attacks on embassies and the terrorist murder of a US ambassador and three other Americans, as 'bumps in the road'.
The comment came in Obama's CBS '60 Minutes' interview that aired on Sunday night. 
Steve Kroft, the interviewer, asked: 'Have the events that took place in the Middle East, the recent events in the Middle East given you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the Arab Spring?
Obama responded: 'Well, I’d said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. The question presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change. 
Bumps in the road: The President said the killing of ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya was some of the 'bumps in the road' along the 'rocky path' to Middle Eastern peace
Terror attack: It took the White House some days to admit the sacking of the consulate in Benghazi was pre-planned
'I think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy, universal rights — a notion that people have to be able to participate in their own governance. 
'But I was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road because, you know, in a lot of these places, the one organizing principle has been Islam.' 

Obama is blocking out the noise.

An admission like this make one wonder just how much other 'noise' this president is blocking out. That and just what he considers as noise. How about 'white noise?' That thought definitely crossed my mind as a metaphor after seeing this 60 minutes snippet.

America had better wake up. We are literally headed toward Armageddon with this man and his policies of embracing and ignoring the threats of islam, while bowing and scraping to our enemies in defiance of our historical allies.

Obama administration not so transparent after all

 It has taken more than a week for the white house to admit that the attack in Libya was a terrorist attack. I wonder why that is? More importantly? I wonder why the American media has allowed them to get away with it. I wonder why more Americans are not challenging the piss poor and complict coverage of mainstream media in America. Even Fox News is in on the look the other way attitude of media as it concerns this administration.

I am sorry, but if this were Bush or any other republican president, there would be non stop coverage and calls for congressional hearings and indictments. Mean while, Eric Holder and Obama are already getting away with murder literally, as it concerns the Fast and Furious scam that they created and allowed to run a muck.

Why Did The White House Take So Long To Admit Libya Attack Was Terrorism?

After the deadly attack on the United States Embassy in Libya, it was apparent to many that the attack was premeditated and designed to kill Americans – not to protest an amateur-made movie that mocked Islam and disrespected Mohammad. The militant 9-11 attackers totally achieved their goal by leaving the United States Embassy in shambles with charred and blood-stained walls as well as a trail of death.
Yet the current administration in the United States government insisted otherwise. President Barack Obama, United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney led the way by denouncing those who dared state the obvious version of what had happened in Benghazi, Libya – that it was about terrorism and not about the anti-Mohammad film.
Finally, a week later, the obvious has been addressed by Jay Carney at the White House and Mathew Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, who both now admit that the deadly acts against United States Ambassador to Libya Christopher Steven and three other Americans were indeed an act of terrorism, obviously committed on 9-11.
With Americans watching the nearing of the date September 11, 2012 on the calendar for weeks – if not months – and dreading the stark reality that something disastrous may happen to innocent Americans again, the president and his political cronies refused to believe what happened.

It's all in the eye of the beholder

When it comes to freedom of speech and religious tolerance, apparently it all resides in the eye of the beholder as it concerns our president. this article depicts the dichotomy of perspectives displayed by Barack Obama on the issues when viewed from alternate perspectives.

Apparently it is Okay to piss on Christ and call it art work and fund it with American taxpayer money, but God forbid that the "prophet' be sullied or placed in contempt by anyone in any fashion. To do so suddenly becomes justification for Jihad, murder and mass rioting globally.

But all is well or should be, because after all, our president is a Christian.

WH Silent Over Demands to Denounce ‘Piss Christ’ Artwork
Sep 21, 2012
By Todd Starnes
Religious groups are blasting President Obama for not condemning am anti-Christian art display set to appear in New York City and one Republican lawmaker said he is “fed up with the administration’s double standard and religious hypocrisy.
 “Piss Christ,” once branded as a “deplorable, despicable display of vulgarity,” will be displayed at the Edward Tyler Nahem Gallery in Manhattan on Thursday. The artwork features a “photograph of the crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine.”
The artwork debuted in 1989 and was funded through prize money provided by the National Endowment for the Arts. The art gallery hosting the retrospective salute to Andres Serrano is privately owned.
Religious groups and some lawmakers have already started sounding off – and making comparisons to the controversy over a recent anti-Muslim film. The low budget movie “Innocence of Muslims” sparked violent and deadly clashes across the globe.
It also brought strong rebukes, condemnations and apologies from President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a host of administration officials.
The administration tried to have the film removed from YouTube – but Google rebuffed their request. The State Dept. spent $70,000 on a Pakistani television advertisement rebuking the film. And the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff personally telephoned a Christian minister in Florida to ask him to withdraw his support of the film.
Rep. Michael Grimm (R, C-NY) wants to know why President Obama hasn’t denounced the exhibit and said he’s fed up with what he called the administration’s “religious hypocrisy.”
“The Obama administration’s hypocrisy and utter lack of respect for the religious beliefs of Americans has reached an all-time high,” Grimm told Fox News. “I call on President Obama to stand up for America’s values and beliefs and denounce the ‘Piss Christ’ that has offended Christians at home and abroad.”
So will the Obama Administration condemn the anti-Christian art display? Will they air a television ad denouncing the exhibit? Will the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ask the gallery to cancel the exhibit?
The White House did not return calls seeking comment. Neither did the Pentagon.
The State Dept. referred to a previous statement Clinton made in reference to the anti-Islamic film.
“America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation,” Clinton said. “And as you know, we are home to people of all religions, many of whom came to this country seeking the right to exercise their own religion, including, of course, millions of Muslims. And we have the greatest respect for people of faith.”
Grimm said the lack of response from the White House is unacceptable.
“Perhaps they’ve forgotten the controversy that surrounds this deplorable piece depicting a crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine,” Grimm said. “It outraged Christians in American and throughout the world.”
Grimm, who is Catholic, said he found the artwork to be vulgar and offensive, “just as many in the Islamic world found ‘Innocence of Muslims’ to be highly offensive.”
“Like most Americans, I condemn both yet remain tolerant as the First Amendment demands,” he said. “Unfortunately, this administration has yet to echo these views in regards to the religiously offensive ‘art’ here at home.”

"Obama, our patience has its limit. Don't blame us if your citizens die. Blame yourself. U started it!"

The plot is thickening for Obama and his dealings with global Islam. The man who promised that dealings with Muslims would ease once he was elected president, is now seeing in dramatic detail, just how false that representation was to the American people.

Many have known from the beginning, that his attempts to placate Muslims would at best be met with contempt, but now his Muslim brothers are coming after him directly and telling him and America directly what their perceptions adn intentions are.

Can America afford to stand idly by and wait for this imposter to act or react to the threats that are mounting daily? Many always worry about October surprises in any election cycle. What will happen to blow the doors off of set perceptions of one candidate or the other.

Obama's October surprise may very well become his Jimmy Carter moment when he has to look the American people in the eye and admit that he has failed them in the face of a devastating attack on this country.

Islam globally is not the friend of America or Barack Obama. By the faithful, he is looked at on at best as a political opportunist to be exploited. While he is looked on by others as an apostate to islam and just another infidel to put to the sword.

Watch the words coming out of the middle east as this crisis sickens and continues to spread. America is in jeopardy and those with common sense can both see it and sense it.
 Malaysian protesters burn US flag over anti-Islam film

About 3,000 Muslims marched on the US embassy in Malaysia on Friday, burning an American flag, over a US-made film that has sparked anger in the Islamic world.
Malaysian protesters burn US flag over anti-Islam filmAlthough there was no violence, angry demonstrators declared their willingness to sacrifice their lives to defend the honour of Prophet Mohammed and warned "there will be consequences" over the film.

"We will not allow the prophet to be insulted. We are willing to sacrifice our lives and property," said Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, an official with the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS), which spearheaded the march.

About 60 percent of Malaysia's 28 million people are Malay-Muslims.

Protesters shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest) and held up signs denouncing the film, America and Jews.

One placard read: "Obama, our patience has its limit. Don't blame us if your citizens die. Blame yourself. U started it!"

Demonstrators handed a memo to an American embassy official, demanding a US apology, "maximum sentences" for the movie-makers and an investigation into whether there was a "planned agenda to provoke hatred and anger towards Muslims".

However, PAS officials said they were not behind the flag burning, and condemned it.

Three things you should know about Islam

1. The Qur'an the Bible and the Torah are not similar and cannot be used to compare or make judgmental evaluations of radicalism as it concerns Islam when compared to other religions. The Bible was written by numerous people over centuries as was the torah. The Qur'an was written by one man over a lifetime.The same man who plagiarized the Christian Bible and the Jewish Torah, then condemned both of them as inferior to his own principles of belief.

2.. Muslims have been commanded to insure that Sharia law is instituted world wide and to force all the peoples of the world  to either become Muslims or they are commanded destroy them as infidels. Sharia law supersedes all other laws with practicing Muslims.

Christians have been commanded to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ world wide. The major difference between Islam and Christianity being, Christians have not been told to force Christianity onto all of the world and to kill everyone who fails to comply, where as.Muslims have been commanded to spread Islam and kill all who fail to become Muslim . The Qur'an (Muhammad)  commands it.

3. Muslims are allowed to deceive non Muslims if it helps Islam. The Bible commands to always be truthful and to love thy neighbor. The Qur'an commands Muslims to hate and murder all who are not Muslims and believers in Allah. Fully 60% of the Qur'an deals with instructions to force the beliefs of Muhammad and Islam on the world and to kill all who refuse to comply.

And as this short video states, the most current passages in the Qur'an are to be adhered to according to Muhammed.

Watch, listen and decide for yourself.. Better yet, obtain a Qur'an and read it for yourself.

"I actually believe in redistribution ,,,ah at least at a certain level, to make sure that  everybody's got a shot"

More "leaked" videos of Romney

It appears that the newest attack of democrats against Mitt Romney is to "leak" videos of Mitt Romney taken during a May 2012 fund raising dinner. I am sure that both the leftist and their media minions are wetting themselves believing these video "leaks" represent a bigger political coup than the Kate Middleton nude paparazzi photos. But do they?

So far from what I have seen and heard of Romney's remarks on these much touted "leaked videos," is precisely the kinds of things that mainstream conservatives think and believe already. Mitt Romney isn't plowing any new ground and he isn't revealing any state secrets of his own or the republican party. What he is doing is speaking truth to the liberal power elitist in the democrat controlled media as it concerns the paid voters of the left and the reality as it concerns Palestine and Israel.

47% of Americans don't pay any federal income tax and that same 47% expects and demands the government to give them more entitlements. That same 47% are not likely to vote for Mitt Romney and he knows it.

As it concerns the Palestinians and the middle east, there is no placating of appeasing the radicals of Islam. Creating a Palestinian state resolves nothing. What it does do as Romney rightly points out, is place a launching pad right next door to the Israelis. As a result, they like anyone else in a similar situation, are prepared to defend themselves and to prevent that from happening.

On a lesser point, I would be interested to learn who paid the $50,000 to infiltrate Romney's fund raiser.

The new Democrat attack front

While the middle east is in crisis and American soldiers are dying almost daily at the hands of terrorist masquerading as Afghan army and police personnel, the media gives Obama a complete pass. With literally volumes of reports coming forth around the world stating that the white house was warned of the Libyan terrorist attacks that killed a US Ambassador, the media continues to  soft play the reality and pursue Mitt Romney and his policies.

The bottom line, Mitt Romney is spot on in his assessment of the American base. The problem is? The truth plays right into the leftist class warfare meme and the media will give them all the air time they need to beat Romney over the head with a crafted perception of the evil rich against the poor.

Romney Calls 47% of Voters Dependent in Leaked Video

12:26 a.m., Sept. 18 | Updated
WASHINGTON — During a private reception with wealthy donors this year, Mitt Romney described almost half of Americans as “people who pay no income tax” and are “dependent upon government.” Those voters, he said, would probably support  President Obama because they believe they are “victims” who are “entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it.”
In a brief and hastily called news conference Monday just after 10 p.m., Mr. Romney acknowledged having made the blunt political and cultural assessment, saying it was “not elegantly stated,” but he stood by the substance of the remarks, insisting that he had made similar observations in public without generating controversy.
The video of Mr. Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, was made in May, offering a rare glimpse of his personal views. Mr. Romney told reporters that he had been “speaking off the cuff in response to a question” at the fund-raiser, and said he wanted “to help all Americans — all Americans — have a bright, prosperous future.”
Democrats quickly condemned the remarks as insensitive, and Mr. Obama’s campaign accused Mr. Romney of having “disdainfully written off half the nation.”
The video surfaced as the campaign enters its final 50 days and as Mr.  Romney sought to restart his campaign with new ads and new messaging, in response to calls in his campaign and from outside for him to be more specific about how his policies would fix the nation’s economy and help the middle class.

Now, the video has raised the possibility that Mr. Romney’s campaign will be sidetracked, with attention focused again on his proposed tax cuts for the wealthy, the release of his personal tax returns and his ability to connect with middle-class voters. With its unvarnished language, the video seems to undermine what aides have argued is an enduring attribute that would appeal to independent voters: a sense that Mr. Romney is, at base, an empathetic and caring man.

Unicorn? Or UNICORE

 Obama's Unicorn UNICORE jobs creation plan.

Here is yet another example of that Obama flavored version of job growth. Take away from the private sector and expand the government sector at a greater cost to the taxpayer. Of course the other part of Obama's plan is to dramatically reduce the American military, therefore, eliminating the quantities of these uniforms. Even though the prison industries version will cost the American taxpayer $5 more per unit to provide.

So....the bottom line, Obama wants to put convicts serving prison sentences to work and lay off honest law abiding citizens who have jobs. Is mainstream media getting any of this? Do they really care?

I think not on both counts.
Two southeast companies that make U.S. military uniforms are shedding hundreds of jobs, as the government looks to federal inmates for the fatigues.
American Power Source makes military clothing in Fayette, Ala., but its government contract expires in October. Federal Prison Industries – which also operates under the name UNICOR will snag the work, and leave the task to inmates. FPI has the first right of refusal for U.S. Government contracts, under a 1930 federal law.
American Apparel, the Selma, Ala., based military clothing manufacturer closed one of its plants and continues to downsize others due to the loss of some of its contracts to FPI. According retired Air Force colonel and spokesman Kurt Wilson, the company laid off 255 employees and cut the hours of 190 employees this year alone. So private workers end up losing their jobs to prisoners.
"The way the law is – Federal Prison Industries gets first dibs and contracts up to a certain percentage before they have to compete against us," Wilson, the executive vice president of business development and government affairs, said. "The army combat uniform, for instance, is an item that they take off the top. As a result American tax payers pay more for it – but the bottom line is each soldier is paying more for their uniform."
American Apparel charges $29.44 per uniform, but the FPI uniform costs $34.18 – a 15 percent difference.
FPI has been around since the 1930s. It provides training, education and employment for inmates in federal custody. With more than 13,000 inmates, FPI operates in about 80 factories across the United States. The company is not allowed to sell its goods to the private sector -- and the law requires federal agencies to buy its products, even if they are not the cheapest.
"It has been going on for some time," Wilson said. "Unfortunately what comes to bear now is, as demand for uniforms begins to decrease, budgets decrease and the problem gets bigger for us. Therefore we have to lay people off."
FPI officials were unavailable for an interview, but the company does offer a number of statistics which dispute the criticism.
"It is important to note that FPI produces only 7 percent of the textile garments purchased by DLA. The other 93 percent are produced by other entities," Julie Rozier, an FPI spokeswoman said in a statement to Fox News.
"FPI's percentage has remained fairly consistent over the past decade, with slight declines. FPI is a program that directly protects society by reducing crime and preparing inmates for successful release back into society to become law-abiding citizens; FPI does not receive a congressional appropriation for its operations," the statement said.
Inmates working for UNICOR or FPI are 24 percent less likely to reoffend and 14 percent more likely to be employed long-term upon release, according to the government company's website. More than 40 percent of Unicor's supplies were purchased from small businesses in 2011.
The battle between the two has caught the attention of lawmakers in Washington.
Representative Bill Huizenga, R-Mich., is sponsoring a bill which would reign in the ability to take work from private companies.
"We all have seen those terrible statistics, forty-plus months of 8.1 percent unemployment. We know the actions the government has taken it doesn't look like this is going to get better any time soon," Huizenga said. "Here we are having a prison population coming in and taking jobs away from the private sector - why in the world we think this is OK. I can guarantee you if this were a Chinese product with Chinese prisoners making that - we would be outraged."
Huizenga went on to say the outrage amongst his constituents is palpable.
"It's just this outside entity called UNICOR or Federal Prison Industries coming in and saying sorry - that work is now ours. We are going to having prisoners doing this," he said. "Of course they are outraged, of course they are frustrated. They are angry, they're hurt frankly that their own federal government would come in and do this to them at a time when their watching their friends and neighbors struggle with $4 gasoline and they're trying to keep their mortgage in check."

Since when does America need permission to defend its people

Since Barack Obama took office.

Sudan rejects U.S. request to send Marines to guard embassy

Sudan has rejected a U.S. request to send a platoon of Marines to bolster security at the U.S. embassy outside Khartoum, the state news agency SUNA said on Saturday.
On Friday, around 5,000 people protested against a film that insults the Prophet Mohammad, storming the German embassy before breaking into the U.S. mission.
They also attacked the British embassy. At least two people were killed in clashes with police, according to state media.
A U.S. official told Reuters on Friday that Washington would send Marines to Sudan to improve security at the embassy, which is located outside Khartoum for security reasons.
"Sudan is able to protect the diplomatic missions in Khartoum and the state is committed to protecting its guests in the diplomatic corps," Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Ahmed Karti told SUNA.
The U.S. State Department declined to comment.

Obama administration in complete denial

According to our ambassador to the UN? Her best assessment of what happened in Libay could be summed up by a famous bumper sticker. "Sh@t Happens." Really? Hijacked by individual cluster of extremist? absent any pre-planning whatsoever? This is the rose colored world as viewed by the leftist presently in power in Washington. Nothing is ever anyone's fault other than America.

Ambassador Susan Rice: Libya Attack Not Premeditated

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi was not premeditated, directly contradicting top Libyan officials who say the attack was planned in advance.

“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice told me this morning on “This Week.”

“In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated,” Rice said, referring to protests in Egypt Tuesday over a film that depicts the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud. Protesters in Cairo breached the walls of the U.S. American Embassy, tearing apart an American flag.

“We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to – or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo,” Rice said. “And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons… And it then evolved from there.”
 The Libya president seems to believe that the attack was planned. The only difference is that he wants to blame 'outsiders' and "Al Qaida" for the attack. Not that he would admit having any Al Qaida indigenous to Libya (heaven forbid)..

Libyan president: 'No doubt' attack 'preplanned'

Libya President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf said Sunday that 50 arrests have been made in connection with last week's "preplanned" attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead.
"The way these perpetrators acted and moved -- I think we, and they're choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, I think we have no, this leaves us with no doubt that this was pre-planned, determined," Magariaf said on CBS's "Face the Nation."
"And you believe that this was the work of al Qaeda, and you believe that it was led by foreigners. Is that what you’re telling us?" CBS host Bob Schieffer asked.
"It was planned, definitely. It was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago. And they were planning this criminal act since their arrival," Magariaf said.

Managing America's security threats via ipad

 But Mr. Carney says "in-person briefings aren't necessary for Mr. Obama; the iPad works just fine." 
"His record of evaluating and acting on intelligence, I think, speaks for itself," I believe the comment and defense by Jay Carney says it all about the realities of this president's failures. He is right. this presidents acting on intelligence speaks for itself.

Obama's Skipped Intel Meetings Under Scrutiny

A simple three-page report by the Government Accountability Institute tallying up the number of days President Barack Obama has attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) on intelligence has ignited a firestorm of controversy that places the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three members of his staff in a new and critical light. 

The report found that of the first 1,225 days of his time in office, Mr. Obama has attended less than half (43.8 percent) of his daily intelligence briefings.  As Breitbart News reported last week, in the week prior to the slaying of U.S. Ambassador Stevens, the White House official calendar shows no record of Mr. Obama attending his PDB. 
When the GAI report was initially reported in a Washington Post article by Marc Thiessen, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney dismissed the report's findings as "hilarious."  The very next day, Ambassador Stevens and three American members of his staff were murdered. 
Now, with the Middle East ablaze, White House reporters on Friday once again pressed Mr. Carney on why Mr. Obama has attended less than half of his daily intelligence briefings, even as he makes time for parties with Beyonce and Jay-Z, as well as numerous fundraisers.  According to ABC News, Mr. Carney did not dispute the GAI report's numbers or findings, but said it depends on what the definition of "attended" is:
The White House does not directly dispute the numbers, but insists they are a "selective representation of the facts." Obama has never "skipped" a Presidential Daily Briefing, aides say, even if an in-person briefing isn't listed on his schedule.
While his predecessor might have preferred an oral daily briefing, Obama religiously reads a written version of the same prepared material, often on a secure iPad (as seen in this official White House PHOTO ).
But as Marc Thiessen points out, the in-person briefings afford presidents and their intelligence officers the ability to challenge assumptions, drill deeper into threat assessment, and ascertain what additional information a commander in chief may need to make sagacious intelligence decisions.
But Mr. Carney says in-person briefings aren't necessary for Mr. Obama; the iPad works just fine.  "His record of evaluating and acting on intelligence, I think, speaks for itself," Mr. Carney said on Friday. "I'll leave it at that."

Freedom of speech? Not really...

Say the wrong thing? And you could be called to answer to the thought police. The president may be apologizing for you to Muslims and the FBI and others might be sent to get you. Just to see if they can trump something up to arrest you for.

I have seen the trailer to this so called film that is pissing off the Arab world. Actually, there are several trailers on the net about it. In my opinion, is is a weak minded attempt at film making and the satire is lacking any understandable intent other than to attack Islam and their prophet, but is that really the point of the present crisis in the middle east? Or is this just one more excuse to flai about and burn and kill and claim offense to their religion. .

I have seen and read a lot of things in my life that I believe are reprehensible, but the bottom line remains, as long as America is a free country, people have a right to express their views. Regardless of how senseless, stupid or inflammatory those views are. 

Watching Hillary Clinton giving her speech on the return of the four killed in Libya was something I also found reprehensible. Not to the same degree as this jerk's film, but none the less her remarks of apology and prominently asserting that America had nothing to do with this film had no place at a solemn (or supposedly solemn) honorable transfer service of the remains of the dead.

Go back to Washington and politic for your boss Hillary, there is no place for it in a setting such as that. As for this Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and his so called film? Quit playing it. Quit remarking about it. Quit giving it media coverage and do the same with the heathens in the middle east who have made a vocation out of being insulted and threatening America.

Meanwhile, try voting for a president who might actually do something in response to attacks like these, instead of some apologist who like all leftist, always believes that America is wrong regardless of the facts.

LA Sheriff: Feds interview Calif. filmmaker
A Southern California filmmaker linked to an anti-Islamic movie inflaming protests across the Middle East was interviewed by federal probation officers at a Los Angeles sheriff's station but was not arrested or detained, authorities said early Saturday.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was interviewed at the station in his hometown of Cerritos, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Don Walker said.
Federal officials have said they were investigating the activities of Nakoula, who has been convicted of financial crimes. If the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.
Walker said Nakoula traveled voluntarily in a squad car with deputies.
"He went to the Cerritos station to talk with probation officers. He's not under any arrest," Walker said.

The Federal Pump

The feds are pumping, but it isn't the economy that's getting pumped. And it isn't common sense or reason flowing through the pump. The Fed is pumping smoke and manur at a maddening rate. trying to stay just ahead of the Tsunami of disaster that is only weeks or months from engulfing America and the rest of the world.

Does anyone actually believe that printing 40 billion more dollars a month to "pump" into the economy is actually going to be beneficial? It further devalues the dollar and will lead to price increases of goods and services across the board. Inflation is what is coming and at the same time it hits, the news from Washington will be that it is time to cut the budget by billions.

Have a look at the article below. this is the future that is looming on America's horizon. 

With excruciating detail, the White House’s budget office on Friday laid out exactly where it will have to cut $109 billion from federal spending in January, including $11.1 billion from Medicare and $54.7 billion from defense spending.
The defense cuts include $21.5 billion from operations and maintenance for the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines and the reserves and National Guard, and nearly $1.4 billion from military aide to Afghanistan, with tens of billions coming from procurement and other Pentagon accounts.
“The report leaves no question that the sequestration would be deeply destructive to national security, domestic investments, and core government functions,” the White House’s budget office said in the report.
Everything from fencing and technology along the U.S.-Mexico border to the government’s own internal watchdogs to local environmental programs are also on the chopping block.
The cuts fall particularly heavy on the federal civilian workforce, where staffing levels and salaries would be docked more than 8 percent almost across the board.
Also facing slashes are the National Institutes of Health, which would see a $2.5 billion cut, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which would have to trim $464 million, according to the 394-page report, issued by the White House Office of Management and Budget in response to a law.
The cuts are due under the terms of last year’s debt deal, which set up the automatic “sequesters” in exchange for granting the administration the borrowing authority to go deeper into debt. Last year’s deficit super committee was supposed to come up with replacements for the sequesters, but the bipartisan committee failed, leaving the automatic cuts in place. They take effect Jan. 2.

The Day I'm Inaugurated Muslim Hostility Will Ease

Just listen and then consider what you have seen and what you are seeing.

Does the world have confidence in Barack Obama?

Does the world have confidence in America? Have relations with Muslims "eased?"

What did they know, and when did they know it.

What did they know and when did they know it?

Sound familiar? That is one of the first questions asked when it becomes apparent that failures of management have occurred in any organization, particularly in government. Such is the case now as it concerns our murdered diplomat in Libya and three other Americans who died in the attack on our embassy in Libya.

While the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton were dancing on the head of a pin and attempting to contain and control the media reporting of the attack, the truth was seeping out through the cracks and once again it isn't American media that is covering or reporting the rising stench of cover up and betrayal in Libya and the middle east.

While Obama was busily apologizing for America in the wake of the embassy attacks in Libya and while Hillary was attempting to white wash the photographs of our ambassador being drug through the streets dead, Hillary was engaging in bogus narratives in fornt of the media and asserting: 'that these were only photos of  Libyans carrying the ambassador to the hospital.' Reall Hillaryy?

Mean while the truth was being revealed along a broad front of other world media outlets that the Americans were warned (The Obama administration was warned) and they did nothing..

I wonder how this will play with the American people. Probably pretty well, seeing as how the complicit American media will focus more on Baby boo Boo and the Kardasians than they will scrutinizing why America is and remains under attack by the Islamic forces of radicalism all across the middle east.

Exclusive: America 'was warned of embassy attack but did nothing'

The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach, The Independent can reveal.

American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.
The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".
Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.
According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted.

Time to pull the Marines out of Egypt and every other US embassy

This is what happens when you have a leftist in the white house and his appointments reflect his same anti American anti common sense strategy to foreign policy. What the hell is the point of having Marines assigned to embassies other than to protect the mission. If they aren't going to allow them to be armed? then they should leave if you ask me. And that should be done immediately, regardless of what this so called ambassador wants.

If her little panty waist opinion of firearms is so colored and convoluted as to carry forth into idiocy, then perhaps she and her staff should be left to be attended to by the Egyptians who she obviously trusts more than her own countrymen.

Looks like their brethren in Libya did a jam up job this week on protecting the US Mission there. Put her on a fast freight back to Cairo and let her rub elbows with her Egyptian friends and security. Tell the Marines mission over, it's time to come home. No point in protecting people who do not want to be protected.

REPORTS: No Live Ammo for Marines

Marine blogs say U.S. embassy did not authorize service members to carry ammo

U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.
Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson “did not permit U.S. Marine guards to carry live ammunition,” according to multiple reports on U.S. Marine Corps blogs spotted by Nightwatch. “She neutralized any U.S. military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.”
U.S. officials have yet to confirm or comment on the reports. Time magazine’s Battleland blog reported Thursday “Senior U.S. officials late Wednesday declined to discuss in detail the security at either Cairo or Benghazi, so answers may be slow in coming.”
If true, the reports indicate that Patterson shirked her obligation to protect U.S. interests, Nightwatch states.
“She did not defend U.S. sovereign territory and betrayed her oath of office,” the report states. “She neutered the Marines posted to defend the embassy, trusting the Egyptians over the Marines.”
While Marines are typically relied on to defend U.S. territory abroad, such as embassies, these reports indicate that the Obama administration was relying on Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood-backed government to ensure American security, a move observers are questioning as violence in Cairo continues to rage.
Marc Toner, the State Department’s deputy spokesperson, did not respond to a request for comment from the Free Beacon. White House National Security Council spokesperson Tommy Vietor also did not respond to a request for comment.
The U.S. ambassador to any nation ultimately decides whether Marines are authorized to carry ammunition, according to a GOP national security adviser knowledgeable about American embassy protocols.
“In the end, the ambassador of any country has the final call on what to do in a country,” the source said. “The buck stops with you. You make every decision.”
Security procedures are subjective and subject to change depending on locale, the source said.
Each ambassador, in consultation with their Regional Security Officer (RSO), sets the policy regarding the rules of engagement, according to the adviser. The RSO is responsible for coordinating all security measures and reports directly to the ambassador in any given nation.
“A decision or order to set rules of engagement that you can’t carry live ammunition and can’t engage violent crowds climbing over your walls and tearing down your flag stems from direct orders from the Chief of Mission and possibly whoever the Chief of Mission reports to,” the source explained.
Given that the siege of the Cairo embassy unfolded over many hours, the source wondered if new orders pertaining to the rules of engagement were ever issued.
Ambassador Anne Patterson was in D.C. during the attacks, according to reports.
“I cannot believe that over an eight hour period that nobody … in that chain of command did not ask those questions of their superiors,” the source said. “These protestors did not just appear and within 20 minutes climb the wall.”
The Free Beacon will continue to update this report as events warrant.

Arabs call on UN to intervene to silence freedom of speech

The time has come and passed for America to satnd up to these sharia inspired Arab clerics and other Muslim radicals and let them know, that we don't give a damn what they think of our freedoms. That and the fact that Americans will fight for their freedoms, regardless of the present interloping Muslim sympathizer in chief who is in the white house.

Many have warned for years of the growing threat of the UN and Americans had better be paying attention, especially with Obama in the white house. There is no telling the extent that he and those like Eric Holder will go to to sell this country out to international socialist and Islamic extremist.

Israeli Arab Official Warns Of ‘Armageddon’ Over Anti-Islam Film

Israeli Arabs protest outside the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv Thursday following the attacks on U.S. compounds in Libya, Egypt and Yemen.
The Times of Israel reports about 100 peaceful demonstrators marched outside the embassy to protest the anti-Islam movie which mocks the prophet Muhammad.
A radical group called the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement led the demonstration, according to the Times of Israel.
A top Israeli Arab Knesset official warned of “Armageddon” if the United Nations does not intervene.
“If the U.N. does not mobilize to stop this erosion, it will be Armageddon,” MK Talab el-Sana told the Israeli paper.
This is the latest round of protests on the heels of the attacks on U.S. compounds in Libya, Yemen and Egypt.
U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three American personnel were killed at the Benghazi embassy, in which officials believe now may be part of a terrorist attack.
In Sanaa, Yemen, and Cairo, Egypt, thousands stormed the embassies and burned the American flag.

Obama's intentionally set fires are spreading

U.S. embassies attacked in Yemen, Egypt after Libya envoy killed

That is right folks, this president may very well go down in history as the biggest arsonist of all time. Watch what happens now all across the middle east. The seeds have been planted and nurtured by the Obama administration. Arab Spring is going to bring forth terror as has not yet been seen in the world. And the hustler from Chicago, whose only experience prior to becoming president was organizing civil unrest, will finally demonstrate to America and the world what his greatest achievement will be.

He will be solely responsible for setting the middle east a blaze and for seeing Israel attacked and our troops attacked in the middle east.Millions will die.  No jobs worries here, no economic worries to concern himself with, no cares or concerns for the plight of America period.

Hell no, this president is on a mission of nation destroying. Imperialist and colonialist be damned! Yo hell with your petty miseries! It is time to pay for your transgressions against the world and the savior of Africa and Islam is here to see to it that the dreams of his father are fulfilled.

SANAA/CAIRO | Thu Sep 13, 2012 8:53am EDT
(Reuters) - Demonstrators attacked the U.S. embassies in Yemen and Egypt on Thursday in protest at a film they consider blasphemous to Islam and American warships headed to Libya after the death of the U.S. ambassador there in related violence earlier in the week.
Hundreds of Yemeni demonstrators broke through the main gate of the heavily fortified compound in eastern Sanaa, shouting "We sacrifice ourselves for you, Messenger of God". Earlier they smashed windows of security offices outside the embassy and burned cars.
"We can see a fire inside the compound and security forces are firing in the air. The demonstrators are fleeing and then charging back," one witness told Reuters. A security source said at least 15 people were wounded, some by bullets. An embassy spokesman said its personnel were reported to be safe.
In Egypt, protesters hurled stones at a police cordon around the U.S. embassy in central Cairo after climbing into the embassy and tearing down the American flag. The state news agency said 13 people were injured in violence which erupted on Wednesday night after protests on Tuesday.
A day earlier, Islamist gunmen staged a military-style assault on the U.S. consulate and a safe house refuge in Benghazi, eastern Libya. The U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans died in the assault, carried out with guns, mortars and grenades. Eight Libyans were injured.
