Krauthammer: Obama Looks Like He’s Chickening Out – US Credibility On The Line (Video)

Appearing on Fox News  after Barack Obama’s Syria speech, Saturday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer accused the president of leaving the region hanging, and making it look like he was “chickening out.”

“This is amateur hour,” Krauthammer said, and if you were sitting in Syria, Iraq, or Moscow watching this speech, then it looked like Obama was looking for a way out of striking Syria after he had boxed himself in.

After listing the arguments in favor of going war, he noted, “the only thing that matters at this point, is the word of the United States. That overrides everything.”

“Even though I think a limited attack is not the right thing to do, at this point he has to do something, or we will have reached the lowest ebb of American influence in the region since 1970,” he said.

As for Obama’s murky timetable for action, Krauthammer said:

“They hear a president who has no idea what he is doing and speaks about this in a leisurely way. What he ought to do, (and I can’t believe he actually decided otherwise!) is bring back Congress tomorrow. We’ve got Reagan Airport, we’ve got National Airport, we’ve got Dulles….you bring in the members of congress, you have a debate for two days, and you have a resolution. You can’t leave the region hanging…It looks absolutely as if the president has chickened out. And that;s the work of the president because of the way he did this.

John Bolton found Obama’s Rose Garden speech to be “absolutely stunning.” He continued, “I’ve been trying to fill in the blank in the following sentence, ‘Barack Obama is the weakest president since….uh – and I have to say, the best I can come up with is James Buchanan who watched the country dissolve into the Civil War. “

White House Dossier: Obama’s Serial Syria Mistakes:

Let’s count the ways in which President Obama has screwed up his Syria policy.

1. He failed to take a stand in a conflict that clearly involves our interests. Bashar Assad is an ally of our enemy, Iran, and a supporter of Iran’s interests and of terrorism throughout the Middle East. He arms people who want to destroy Israel, and Israel is our friend, whose continued existence we safeguard militarily. The chance to eliminate Assad should have been seized early with a robust program of assistance to rebels before Islamists and al Qaeda had fully infiltrated their ranks.

2. Obama drew a red line without thinking. He committed to United States to action without thoroughly understanding the consequences. America must be considered true to its word or it will not be taken seriously, and national security will be severely damaged. This type of irresponsibility is what happens when you elect someone with no relevant experience for the job to be president.

Obama About to Plunge Us into Another War w/o Congressional Approval, UN Approval, or Consent of the American People

Obama is considering a face-saving strike on Syria without the authorization of Congress, UN approval, or the consent of the American people.

Via Red State:

The plans being floated by President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry for a wildly unpopular military intervention in Syria are incoherent on any number of levels. Rather than identify an enemy and seek the enemy’s defeat, the essential requirement for using military force, the Administration is unwilling to declare the toppling of the Assad regime as a goal – despite Obama’s own proclamation two years ago this month that “[f]or the sake of the Syrian people, the time has come for President Assad to step aside.” Instead, according to one unnamed “U.S. official” quoted by the LA Times, the Administration wants a military strike “just muscular enough not to get mocked.” Churchillian, this is not.

116 Members of Congress signed a letter to Obama warning him about striking Syria without their consent.

 House lawmakers from both sides of the aisle sent a letter to President Barack Obama Wednesday asserting that striking Syria without prior Congressional authorization would be unconstitutional.

As we reported Tuesday, the letter penned by Rep. Scott Rigell, R-Va., pushes the president to “receive authorization from Congress before ordering the use of U.S. military force in Syria.”

While the letter lacks signatures from top leaders — Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, wrote his own letter to Obama Wednesday afternoon — it now has 98 Republican and 18 Democratic supporters.

The letter was sent to the president after 5 p.m. on Wednesday. Among the Republicans on the letter are Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul of Texas, House Republican Policy Committee Chairman James Lankford of Oklahoma and some close Boehner allies, including Tom Latham of Iowa, Mike Simpson of Idaho, Tom Cole of Oklahoma, and Tom Price of Georgia.

Democrats include Rep. Peter A. DeFazio of Oregon, the ranking member of the House Natural Resources Committee, and Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota, the ranking member of the House Agriculture Committee.

A GOP Congressman is telling Boehner: Call House Back Now to Deal With Syria

Rep. Scott Rigell (R.-Va.)–who served six years in the Marine Corps Reserves, sits on the House Armed Services Committee, and represents the congressional district with the largest concentration of military personnel of any in the nation–said today he is calling on House Speaker John Boehner to call the House back into session to prevent President Barack Obama from usurping Congress’s constitutional authority to authorize—or not authorize—the use of military force in Syria.

“He should be calling the House back right now,” Rigell said of Boehner. “I will be clear on this.”

“I do have a call scheduled with one of our senior leaders this afternoon and I will be making that case,” said Rigell. “I think we’re at this point, and I regret that we’re at this point. But that is where we are.”

He would be acting without the UN’s approval:

The State Department made clear Wednesday that the Obama administration plans to bypass the United Nations Security Council as it prepares for a possible strike on Syria, after having failed to win support from Russia.

In blunt terms, department spokeswoman Marie Harf said last-ditch efforts to win support for an anti-Assad resolution at the U.N. were unsuccessful, and the U.S. would proceed anyway.

“We see no avenue forward given continued Russian opposition to any meaningful council action on Syria,” she said. “Therefore, the United States will continue its consultations and will take appropriate actions to respond in the days ahead.”

And without the consent of the American people:

Americans strongly oppose U.S. intervention in Syria’s civil war and believe Washington should stay out of the conflict even if reports that Syria’s government used deadly chemicals to attack civilians are confirmed, a Reuters/Ipsos poll says.

About 60 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should not intervene in Syria’s civil war, while just 9 percent thought President Barack Obama should act.

Obviously aware of how unpopular the move is with the American people, President “Daddy Issues”, is avoiding talking to us about it.

With military action against Syria set to begin within hours, according to reports, President Barack Obama and his administration are determining what legal route to take in order to justify the attack. According to NBC News White House reporter Chuck Todd, the administration is leery of seeking Congressional support for a mission in Syria because Congress many decline to bless such an operation. Now, according to reports from POLITICO’s Glenn Thrush, Obama may seek to avoid the American people as well.

Thrush reported on Wednesday that, based on his conversations with aides to the president, Obama will not address the American people about the mission in Syria before hostilities commence. Thrush reports that Obama’s advisors believe addressing Americans from the gravity of the Oval Office or the East Room is “passé.” Furthermore, most Americans who care about the mission in Syria will learn the logic behind it from cable news.

All so he can save face over his stupid “red line” ultimatum which he gave in the heat of a presidential campaign to make himself look strong on foreign policy. We are about to align ourselves with al friggin’ Qaeda so Obama doesn’t look weak and ridiculous.  But he is weak and ridiculous, and the country already embarrassed itself when we reelected him – so who cares if the world laughs at us one more time at Obama’s expense?

Need I even need to mention how the Democrat media complex would be reacting if a Republican President were doing the same thing?

It’s OK When I Do It

The lesson of both Obama’s and Kerry’s history of criticism of the Iraq War (Kerry, you will recall, voted for the war after voting against the original Persian Gulf War on the theory that the first President Bush hadn’t assembled a large enough coalition) is that it was primarily driven by partisan opposition to George W. Bush, rather than any particular principled view of how to run American foreign policy. In that light, it is perhaps unsurprising that the arguments made against Bush have been discarded and forgotten, just as all but a tiny minority of the anti-war movement has been silent on Obama’s Libyan and Syrian adventures (and the internet chorus that branded Bush and Cheney as “chickenhawks” has been silent on Obama’s and Biden’s lack of military service). But being in charge requires more than just blind partisanship, and five years into his presidency, Obama seems lost in formulating an approach to the use of military force that makes any sort of coherent sense.

 

By the way, I’m not even convinced that it was the Syrian regime and not the rebels who used the chemical weapons.

Exhibit 1: Panetta, Sept. 28, 2012: WE LOST TRACK OF SYRIAN WMDS:

Today, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced that the US no longer had knowledge of the whereabouts of some Syrian chemical weapons, and admitted that those weapons may have been funneled to rebels or Iranian proxies. “There has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place,” said Panetta. “Where exactly that’s taken place, we don’t know.”

Panetta maintained that the most dangerous weapons were the ones still in possession of the Syrian government. But “with regards to the movement of some of this and whether or not they’ve been able to locate some of it, we just don’t know.”

Exhibit Two: Evidence: Syrian Rebels used Chemical Weapons (not Assad)

…even before Assad’s forces gained the momentum, a UN official reportedly found evidence of rebels using chemical weapons but no evidence Assad’s regime did. This, from a Washington Times article by Shaun Waterman dated May 6, 2013:

Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed. {emphasis ours}

Today, while the rebels are more desperate than they were at the time of that article, evidence of rebels using chemical weapons is available; evidence Assad’s regime has used them is not.

Waterman wrote…

Rebel Free Syrian Army spokesman Louay Almokdad denied that rebels had use chemical weapons.

That doesn’t square with a video uploaded on August 23, 2013, in which Free Syrian operatives threatened to launch chemical weapons:

Exhibit Three: John Brennan, the CIA, and Chemical weapons Propaganda:

It’s important to consider where this information is coming from – the CIA. This past February, in an article written by Steven Emerson that appeared on the Fox News website, the terrorism expert wrote about why John Brennan was the wrong man for the job of directing the intelligence agency:

Brennan’s White House tenure shows a disturbing tendency to engage with Islamist groups which often are hostile to American anti-terrorism policies at home and abroad. Those meetings confer legitimacy upon the groups as representatives of all Muslim Americans, despite research indicating that the community is far too diverse to have any one group represent its concerns.

A Feb. 13, 2010 speech Brennan gave at the New York University School of Law serves as an example.

It was organized by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group founded by Muslim Brotherhood members in the United States, some of whom remain active with the organization. And, although it denied any Brotherhood connection in 2007, exhibits in evidence in a Hamas-support trial show ISNA’s “intimate relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood.” {emphasis ours}

Exhibit Four: (The most solid evidence as far as I’m concerned…) Jay Carney says it’s “preposterous to suggest anyone but Assad Regime used the chemical weapons:

I’m not aware of any doubt,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters in response if there was a question if the Assad regime used chemical weapons last week in a heinous attack on Syrian civilians. “Suggestions that there is any doubt about who is responsible about this are as preposterous as suggestions that the attack itself didn’t occur,” Carney said.

That proves it.. The Assad Regime didn’t do the chemical weapons attack because as we know, every day is opposite day with Jay Carney.

Give me one reason why I should believe a single thing that comes out of that man’s mouth.

John Bolton slams Obama – President needs a character transplant to work effectively on Syria:

Col. Ralph Peters On Syria: Let  Our Enemies Kill Each Other!: 

 

Obama’s Silence Equals Consent As His Muslim Brotherhood Allies Torch Dozens of Coptic Christian Churches

Discrimination and violence are nothing new for Christians living in the Middle East, but after the Muslim Brotherhood rose to power in Egypt in the wake of the 2011 “Arab Spring”,  emboldened Islamists increased their attacks. Terrorist attacks on Christians at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood increased even more after Mohammed Morsi was ousted on July 3.

“The world is watching”, Mr. President:

After torching a Franciscan school, Islamists paraded three nuns on the streets like “prisoners of war” before a Muslim woman offered them refuge. Two other women working at the school were sexually harassed and abused as they fought their way through a mob.

In the four days since security forces cleared two sit-in camps by supporters of Egypt’s ousted president, Islamists have attacked dozens of Coptic churches along with homes and businesses owned by the Christian minority. The campaign of intimidation appears to be a warning to Christians outside Cairo to stand down from political activism.

Via The New York Sun:

In the past 48 hours alone, some 57 Egyptian churches have been burned to the ground in the Nile valley. It will not be lost on the Egyptians that Mr. Obama has spent the crisis playing golf at Martha’s Vineyard.

Scores of Christians are being consumed in this conflagration, some burned beyond recognition defending their churches, even as Mr. Obama’s much-despised envoy in Egypt, Ambassador Patterson, still tries to effect a reconciliation between the the Muslim Brotherhood conducting this devastation and the Egyptians who revolted against the Brotherhood’s rule.

Mr. Obama came out against a pastoral background to urge the Egyptian military and government to take it easy on his favored Islamists and to hint at even more sanctions if they do not. As Mr. Obama retreated back to the beach, his aides warned of a cutoff of the $1.5 billion a year that American has been providing, though such aid is now being overwhelmed with a package of $12 billion that began flowing from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates only last month.

In Arab culture, such language and mannerism, including the wagging of fingers, will be seen as insulting, which at least partly explains the rush by the oil-rich countries to help the revolutionary government in Cairo.

Unless the president puts out a strong statement condemning this latest spate of attacks on Christian in Egypt, I think it’s reasonable to assume that he consents to violence against Christians.

Obama has rarely mentioned religious freedom, or made a point of condemning violence against Christians in Muslim countries. He’s airbrushed over it a few times – but the growing problem of Muslim atrocities against Christians  has been given short shrift by the Obama administration. This has been the appalling pattern since he took office.

Now, his allies, the Muslim Brotherhood,  want “the world to believe that it is comprised of persecuted and repressed underdogs that it is not,” according to former Muslim Brotherhood terrorist, Walid Shoebat.  “On the contrary, the Brotherhood is a group that will lie, cheat, steal, and murder while fooling others into believing it is on the short end of that stick.”

Western media continues to play along with the Brotherhood’s Pallywood script. It’s simply not believable that these figures are dupes too, which makes them accomplices in a despicably deceptive narrative.

Egypt’s State Information Service (SIS) released a scathing statement Saturday  accusing the media of “steer[ing] away from objectivity and neutrality,”  resulting in “a distorted image” of events in Egypt to their audiences.

Via Foreign Policy: 

“Egypt is feeling severe bitterness towards some Western media coverage that is biased to the Muslim Brotherhood and ignores shedding light on violent and terror acts that are perpetrated by this group,” the statement read.

The SIS laid out seven ways in which international coverage of Egypt was lacking. In addition to ignoring the Brotherhood’s “thuggery and sabotage,” the statement said, some media “are still falling short of describing the [anti-Morsy protests] of June 30 as an expression of a popular will.” The Egyptian government, in other words, objects to international coverage describing Morsy’s ouster as a military coup.

The statement also accused foreign press of ignoring the support that the Muslim Brotherhood is allegedly drawing from foreigners and jihadists. It accused the media of “completely ignor[ing]” that the Brotherhood had sought support from al Qaeda elements, alleging that five vehicles flying the Islamist “black flag” and armed with automatic weapons had driven into Cairo’s Ramses Square during pro-Morsy protests there on Friday. “[The foreign press] also ignored making reference to the participation of non-Egyptian elements from Pakistan, Syria and Palestine in violent acts committed by the Brotherhood,” the statement read

Egyptian officials have also echoed the statement’s criticisms in their public remarks. In a press conference yesterday, Egyptian presidency spokesman Mustafa Hegazy opened with remarks in English — a sign that his message was geared to foreign media. He said that Egyptians were “bitter” that the foreign press had ignored stories of Brotherhood supporters killing soldiers, burning churches, and using women and children as human shields. The events in Egypt were not a political disagreement between two sides, he said, but a “war with terrorism … and Egypt will defend its sovereignty.

Egyptians are Lashing out at Obama: “Damn You Obama! Damn You!”

damn-you-obama.jpg.pagespeed.ic.FFV8DBAsmn

Israel Matzov links to a report that Egyptian army chief Abdel Fateh al-Sisi is refusing to take phone calls from  Barack Obama and US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.

Egypt is bleeding and angry. While the army and Muslim Brotherhood clash in the streets, at a high cost of hundreds of casualties in just one weekend, many Egyptians — especially the military — are furious at Washington. The United States, Egypt’s number one ally in the world with an annual aid package of $1.3 billion, has all of a sudden become irrelevant. One can assume that this is not what the American president had in mind when he delivered his famous Cairo speech in 2009. In Egypt, Obama is seen not as the person who did not prevent Mubarak’s downfall, rather as the person who supported the Muslim Brotherhood. At the same time, Obama could be perceived at home as breaking the law due to his refusal to recognize a military coup in Egypt, which would prohibit him from transferring aid funds. This is without doubt an awkward situation for the president.

Obama is humiliated. After he refused to answer U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel’s calls, Col. Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, currently the strongest person in Egypt, also refused to answer a call from Obama. The Egyptian defense minister is waging a military campaign against the Muslim Brotherhood while simultaneously opening a diplomatic front against the United States. The cancellation of a joint military exercise with the U.S. is not much of a concern for Sissi. On the contrary, the cancellation is more of a concern for Jerusalem, which needs a friendly, professional and strong Egyptian army along its southern border.

Four short years ago, Obama seemed on top of the world when he gave a speech to the Muslim world in Cairo (to mixed reviews at best.)  Open Doors USA, a ministry to persecuted Christians, pointed out that Obama had failed to elaborate on the persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt or the plight of minority Christians in other Muslim countries.

A year later,  a bipartisan government commission  criticized Obama and  the Regime’s handling of religious freedom in the world.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom in its annual report stated that Obama has rarely mentioned religious freedom since his Cairo and Ankara speech last year. The president and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the report stated, have also exchanged the phrase religious freedom for the narrower phrase “freedom of worship.”

It took Obama more than two years to fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, that works against religious persecution across the world.

Obama filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and Congress. Suppose that there was a country where Muslims were being massacred every month, would the Obama Administration and media remain silent on a Muslim holocaust?

Every month we have thousands of Christians massacred around the world, but Obama and American media ignores the Christians holocaust around the world. A mob attack on Muslims in Burma immediately resulted in a condemnation from the State Department and Obama. But a carbombing and shooting attack on two churches in Nigeria have not been similarly commented on by the State Department.

Atlas Shrugs bluntly asks, “why is the Obama administration in league with these jihad butchers?”

At PJ Media, RAYMOND IBRAHIM writes:

With the recent decision to arm the opposition fighting Syrian President Assad, the United States has effectively declared a proxy war on Syria’s indigenous Christians — a proxy war that was earlier waged on Christians in other Mideast nations, resulting in the abuse, death, and/or mass exodus of Christians.

Ironically (if not absurdly) this proxy war on Christians is being presented to the American people as a war to safeguard the “human rights” and “freedoms” of the Syrian people.  Left unsaid by the Obama administration is the egregiously inhuman behavior these jihadis visit upon moderate Syrians in general and Christians in particular, from bombed churches to kidnapped (and often beheaded) Christians.  Days ago they massacred an entire Christian village.

Nor can one argue that the Obama administration is unaware that Christian persecution is an ironclad aspect of empowering jihadis.  Both past precedents and current events repeatedly demonstrate this.

I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that a Regime that has been conducting its own war against Christians here at home, would be aiding and abetting acts extreme persecution and violence against Christians abroad — but it’s appalling nonetheless.

Did you ever think you’d live to see a president this horrible?!

Judge Jeanine Pirro: ‘Mr. President, It Looks Like You Support Fanatical Muslims’ (Video)

Judge Jeanine Pirro seems to get devilish enjoyment out of pantsing the president  every weekend on her show.

This Saturday in her opening statement, she gleefully castigated Obama for his horrible handling of the Middle East.

She started out by reminding her audience of Obama’s infamous speech to the Muslim world in June of 2009 that was supposed to help undo the damage the monster Bush had done in his eight years to US/Muslim relations.

“Mr. President, with all due respect,” Pirro began impishly, “I have news for you. George Bush was more popular in the Arab world than you are, right now. The truth? Your indecisive, unclear and feckless foreign policy has literally run our relationship with that region into the ground. And here’s the rub. You’ve been giving billions of our dollars to countries who not only give us nothing in return, but who literally hate our guts.”

She went on to ask, “how can one possibly resolve differences with Islamist fanatics who burn Christian Churches – about 50 now, they say, so far –  topple police vehicles, and use women and children as human shields? And have as their mantra, “with life, with blood – we sacrifice for Islam. Then she lowered the boom. “Mr. President, now it looks like YOU’RE  supporting fanatical Muslims.”

Pirro also weighed in on the latest revelations in the NSA scandal.

“Edward Snowden must be laughing in his vodka,” she quipped. “It’s almost like he choreographed it so that every time the president denies anything, Snowdens leaks are able to rebut his lies.” (Could he have learned that trick from the late great Andrew Breitbart?)

Also, she had on that ridiculous truther doofus, MD Rabbi Alam who actually ran for Sec of State in the Democrat primary in Mo, last year:

Washington insiders told the Beacon that Democrats really need to distance themselves from Alam.

“What is shocking is how someone with such repugnant views can rise so quickly to a position of prominence in the Democratic Party,” said one D.C.-based communications adviser.

“The Democratic Party of Missouri needs to disavow him,” said the source. “The DNC and its Asian American caucus need to disavow him, and the White House needs to make clear he will not be credentialed or granted access to the Democratic National Convention.”

Alam appeared with some other Muslim moke to debate the so called “Million Muslim March” that has been organized for Sept. 11. Such a great way for Muslims earn the good will of fellow Americans –  march as victims of intolerance at Ground Zero on 9/11. It probably actually makes sense to liberals.

You could say this debate got a little heated.

Amid Death Threats and Censorship YouTube’s ‘La Blonde’ Speaks Out Against Islamization of France

blonde

This brave young French woman, known as ‘La blonde of YouTube’ is  being censored and suppressed by the Muslim Lobby because she boldly speaks the truth about the Islamization of her beloved homeland.

She’s kinda like a french, Catholic,  female version of Pat Condell – well reasoned, passionate, articulate and unafraid.

As she noted in this video,  there have been mass complaints about her videos for “racism etc” (the left operates the same way everywhere, do they not?) and she fears that her Facebook page will be deleted soon.

But then she stares straight into the camera and says, “you will not stop me…I will open other pages and other sites, I will go to Ru-Tube where one is not censored, I will go on all the sites – Daily Motion – anywhere – but you will not silence me… okay?”

Here she expresses her incomprehension at being branded a racist for speaking in defense of her country and culture.

She’s a rock star, n’est pas?

Judge Jeanine Pirro: The US Is No Longer Respected Or Feared (Video)

On Saturday night’s Justice With Jeanine, the good Judge began her opening statement with scissors in hand. She was working on a paper cut-out of a paper tiger to signify the United States’ weak stature under Obama.

“There was a time when the United States was both respected and feared”, she said, “today however in the eyes of the world, we are neither respected nor feared. And it’s Obama’s feckless foreign policy that’s diminished our stature on the world stage. That policy mimics a paper tiger,” she explained. “Seemingly dangerous, but in truth, timid and weak.”

(Oh yeah? Tell that to Osama Bin Laden!, the left cries in unison at such arguments.

Yeah, I hate to break it to you drones, but Obama had to be dragged kicking and screaming into that decision. The gutsy call was really a putzy stall. )

“Every time there’s an issue, we roar”, Pirro continued, “and then turn tail and run.” (Unless you’re poor and helpless Honduras and you just kicked out a Chavez-like, communist, wannabe dictator – then there’s a roar, aggressive bullying and removal of aid.)

Pirro compared all Obama’s big talk and promises with the actual results.

His deceptive buffoonery would be funny if there wasn’t a plurality of Americans who actually believe him, and his lies weren’t so damn detrimental to the country.

Pirro sounding like me, here: “Mr President, when you talked about the most transparent administration in history, I guess you really meant that most transparent would be our phone calls and our records – terrorists, of course, excluded.”

If she’s like me – she’s not kidding. That’s the country we live in today and it’s pretty friggin scary.:

Pirro Tears Into Rolling Stone For Boston Bomber Glamour-Boy Cover (Video)

Judge Jeanine Pirro took aim at the Rolling Stone on her show, tonight, slamming them for their obscene and inexcusable glamorization of Boston bomber,  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who also received a severe tongue lashing from the Fox host.

Apparently, the New York Times tried to argue that the writer was just describing how a normal American kid could go wrong.

But Pirro said she  read the article twice, and came away “with no explanation as to why he went wrong”.

“Maybe he’s a terrorist because he wants to be a terrorist. Because he chose to be a terrorist…Or maybe he was raised by good ‘ol Jihadi mom to be a terrorist….or maybe he’s just plain evil, like the devil!” Pirro exclaimed.

When it comes down to it, “I really don’t give a damn,” she said, and then she proceeded to explain why.

She concluded, “Dzhokhar…you’re not the one in pain, you’re not a rock star – you’re not a cover boy…you’re a damn terrorist, the spawn of Satan who should go directly to hell, sooner rather than later!”

Houston “Peaceful Activist” Who Organized March That Blocked Traffic and Intimidated/Assaulted Drivers Was NBPP Member

protester-grandma

On Monday evening,  a “Justice For Trayvon”  march got out of hand when hundreds of demonstrators spilled out onto the street and blocked traffic for about 15 minutes.

That’s when Georgia, a grandmother on her way to a Texas Children’s Hospital with her daughter and 7-year-old granddaughter, was assaulted through an open window of her car.

Georgia’s daughter was driving and tried to go around the demonstrators by driving on the grassy shoulder.

“One of them was hitting the windshield and I was just screaming, ‘We’ve got to get to the hospital,’ and they were screaming and chanting,” she said. “All I could think of was, I got to get my granddaughter to the hospital.”

A Local 2 camera covering the protest recorded the entire incident. On the video you could see Georgia sitting in the front seat of an SUV, she had her window down and you can see a man reach in and grab her. Georgia said she was hit.

“When we got on the road I told her, ‘Let’s call 911,” and I could feel I had been hit,” she said.

The family is upset by the whole incident and thinks the demonstrators took things too far. Georgia filed a police report and hopes that things will quiet down.

“It wasn’t peaceful,” she said. “It was terrifying.”

Now, that’s the story, and here’s KPRC’s headline and byline: Local family’s emergency trip to hospital interrupted by demonstrators. The coordinator of the protest says he gave specific instructions to participants not to break any laws and not to touch or harm anyone.

KPRC uncritically reported:

Quanell X, the community activist who planned the event, told Local 2 he thought the protest was peaceful.

He also said he gave specific instructions to participants not to break any laws and not to touch or harm anyone.

You can watch their report of the incident, here - note that some of the demonstrators were carrying NBPP flags.

For some reason, they neglected to mention in their report that peaceful “community activist”, Quanell X is a member of the New Black Panther Party. He joined that organization after being thrown out of the Nation of Islam for being too violent.

According to Wikipedia:

In September, 1990, Quanell Evans was inspired by a Louis Farrakhan speech at Sam Houston Coliseum and joined the Nation of Islam against his parents’ wishes. The newly dubbed Quanell X quickly became a spokesman in the organization.[3]

Quanell X was forced out of the Nation of Islam for publicly inciting violence with his televised, and highly publicized, exhortation to Houston-area blacks:

“[i]f you feel that you just got to mug somebody because of your hurt and your pain, go to River Oaks and mug you some good white folks. If you’re angry that our brother is put to death, don’t burn down your own community, give these white folks hell from the womb to the tomb.”[6]

After leaving the Nation of Islam, Quanell X joined a paramilitary group named “MFOI”, for “Mental Freedom Obtains Independence.” The new faction was not designed to attract significant exoteric membership.[7] After the MFOI removed Quanell, he joined the New Black Panther Party under the leadership of Khalid Abdul Muhammad and is now a local leader of the organization.[3]

When contacted, an employee at KPRC  admitted they knew Quanell X was a member of the NBPP, and couldn’t say why it was not mentioned in the report — an unforgivable omission considering their byline.

How about “black radical with troubling  background belonging to various black militant groups including the Nation of Islam (which he was thrown out of for being too violent) and the NBPP”?

3 New Black Panthers Hold Vigil Outside Of Tampa Courthouse – Gets Sympathetic Media Coverage (Video)

A “justice for Trayvon” rally in Tampa fell flat on Monday, as only 3 New Black Panther protesters showed up to protest the Zimmerman verdict.

WFLA reported:

Only three demonstrators showed up at a Justice for Trayvon Martin rally organized by the New Black Panther party near a Tampa courthouse Monday.

The representatives with the New Black Panthers told us they scheduled a gathering in front of the George Edgecomb Courthouse on Twiggs Street to bring attention to the broken judicial system and to demand justice for Trayvon Martin.

As the morning wore on, a few people going in and out of the courtroom stopped to listen for a moment or two, and were interviewed by ABC Action News. Note the sympathetic treatment the reporter gave the odious New Black Panthers, whose foot soldiers have found ways to inject antisemitism into the Zimmerman case,  vowed “the black man will exact justice on Zimmerman” and   declared that the Zimmerman verdict means “war”. Last year they put put a $10,000 bounty on Zimmerman’s head.

“For Ali Mohammed, there is no riding the fence since the verdict came down…..with the Zimmerman not guilty verdict weighing on his heart and boiling in his soul, Ali is calling for change in how ‘Lady Justice’ sees the law,” the reporter intoned.

Good grief!

Thank God for the last woman interviewed who injected some sanity and common decency into the farce, reviving my faith in humanity just a little bit.

Imagine if a tea party rally drew only 3 protesters. Do you think anyone in the media would have been there to cover it?

I’ve been to rallies that have drawn thousands that were ignored by the local media. We live in an upside down world.

After Speaking To Obama, Morsi Rebuffs 48 Hour Ultimatum – Will ‘Pursue His Own Plans’ (Video)

 wake up

Monday, the head of Egypt’s army, General Abdel Fattah Sisi, called for the army to intervene within 48 hours “if the demands of the people are not realized.”

Sisi’s call for intervention was taken to mean either Morsi should resign or call for new elections.

An aide to Morsi said, “Obviously we feel this is a military coup. But the conviction within the presidency is that [the coup] won’t be able to move forward without American approval.”  The implication was that the Egyptian army would not intervene without the support of the United States, since it depends on American largesse.

Early Tuesday morning, after speaking on the phone with Obama on Monday, Egypt’s embattled President Morsi  “rebuffed an army ultimatum to force a resolution to Egypt’s political crisis,” and said he would “pursue his own plans for national reconciliation.”

The Islamist leader described as potentially confusing Monday’s 48-hour deadline set by the head of the armed forces for him to agree on a common platform with liberal rivals who have drawn millions into the streets demanding Mursi’s resignation.

Members of his Muslim Brotherhood have used the word “coup” to describe the military maneuver, which carries the threat of the generals imposing their own road map for the nation.

But in a statement issued at nearly 2 a.m., fully nine hours after General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi delighted Mursi’s opponents by effectively ordering the president to heed the demands of demonstrators, the president’s office used considerably less direct language to indicate he would try to take little notice.

“The president of the republic was not consulted about the statement issued by the armed forces,” it said. “The presidency sees that some of the statements in it carry meanings that could cause confusion in the complex national environment.”

Official video was released showing Mursi meeting the uniformed Sisi. Their body language seemed awkward, although it was unclear when it was shot.

 

The statement from Mursi’s office continued, “The presidency confirms that it is going forward on its previously plotted path to promote comprehensive national reconciliation … regardless of any statements that deepen divisions between citizens.”

Describing civilian rule as a great gain from the revolution of 2011, Egypt’s first freely elected leader, in office for just a year, said he would not let the clock be turned back.

But in referring to his plans for reconciliation as those he had spelt out before, he was speaking of offers that have already been rejected by the opposition, leaving it improbable that such compromises would bear fruit before Sisi’s deadline.

Mursi also spoke to U.S. President Barack Obama by phone on Monday, the presidency said in a separate statement. Mursi stressed that Egypt was moving forward with a peaceful democratic transition based on the law and constitution, it said.

General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke to his Egyptian counterpart, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Monday, although it was unclear what was said.

President Barack Obama has urged Mursi and his rivals to compromise. But Washington has also defended the legitimacy of Mursi’s election. It is unclear how far the Egyptian military has informed, or coordinated with, its U.S. sponsors.

NBC’s Chuck Todd tweeted, (h/t WZ): POTUS will not criticize Morsi specifically, says not U.S. Position to pick Egypt’s leaders.

Charles Krauthammer, hearkening back to the 2009 Green revolution in Iran,  called Obama just “a bystander” again, as millions of Egyptians take to the streets – but I’m not sure it’s correct to call him a bystander, this time. He sent 140,000 Canisters of U.S. Teargas to Egypt’s Morsi. That’s pro-active.

Obama is a bystander, again. Here are the Egyptians in the millions out on the street, trying to bring down an Islamist government, increasingly dictatorial, increasingly intolerant, arresting journalists and judges, trying to Islamicize the military and the people are saying no, and what does the president of the United States do? He takes a position of studied neutrality, says he is not supporting either side. And yet, as you point out in the Mubarak revolution, he obviously strongly took the side of the people. He demanded that Mubarak had to go, he was not neutral.

This reminds me of the Green Revolution in Iran in 2009 when the same thing happened. Islamists, dictatorial government, the people out in the street, and they were shouting Obama, Obama, are you with us or against us. And he took a position that was essentially supportive of the regime, and the reason was he wanted to negotiate a nuclear deal which he thought he could do and he didn’t want instability.

That was a shameful episode. But there’s also idea of national interest. Mubarak was pro-American, he was an ally of ours, he helped us in all kinds of ways. Obama worked against him. Morsi represents a movement which is essentially deeply anti-American, and deeply anti-democratic, yet he is neutral on this. This is a shocking position for a president to take.

Via Townhall, a memo surfaced, last week that has been reported on in the Arab world, not yet been acknowledged in the American MSM.

Multiple sources have confirmed this document details several confessions of the six Egyptians in Libyan custody for the 9.11.12 bombing of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

The document details the involvement of the Muslim Brotherhood and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi as being involved with and in the funding, support, planning, and execution of the attack.

What is unique about this document is that its content wasn’t leaked to the press in some sort of salacious move. This is simply an interdepartmental memo from the Libyan National Security offices in Tripoli to the Ministry of the Interior. Written solely as a perfunctory after-action report as the results of the Libyan investigation in the events of that night.

It was prepared by Mahmoud Ibrahim Sharif, the Director of National Security of Libya.

In his report Sharif conveys that the Libyan investigation unearthed an Egyptian (terror) cell that had been involved in the planning and execution of the attack. Six confessions from those arrested at the scene–all of them Egyptian–and all connected to the U.S. terror watch listed group Ansar al-Sharia.

Concerning the most important claim of the Libyan memo, Raymond Ibrahim, (an American research librarian, translator, and author, whose focus is Arabic history, language, and current events) indicates that “during interrogations, these Egyptian jihadi cell members ‘confessed to very serious and important information concerning the financial sources of the group and the planners of the event and the storming and burning of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi…. And among the more prominent figures whose names were mentioned by cell members during confessions: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi…’”

The investigation also seems to have unearthed a video taken the night of the attack in which members of the jihadists identify themselves as being sent personally by “Dr. Morsi.”

If in fact Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was even remotely involved, tacitly aware, or even seen giving nodding approval, why on earth did President Obama turn around and deliver 16 fighter jets and 200 tanks to the Egyptian regime roughly three months later?

Keep reading… there are a few more questions that need answers – not the least being,  “Will the White House press corps do its job and press for answers on Egyptian involvement in 09.11.12?”

And can the American people handle the truth?

Look What Egyptians Are Saying About Obama’s Awesome Ambassador To Egypt (Part II)

Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians are demonstrating today in opposition to Obama’s close buddy,  President Mohamed Morsi. They are “launching an all-out push to force Mohammed Morsi from office on the one-year anniversary of his inauguration.” It only took one year for Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood’s pal’s corrupt and thuggish Islamic government to drive hundreds of thousands of  citizens to the streets in protest. (Of course, it only took Obama one month.)

Fears of violence were high, with Morsi’s Islamist supporters vowing to defend him.

Waving Egyptian flags and posters of Morsi crossed out in red, crowds packed central Cairo’s Tahrir square, the birthplace of the 2011 uprising against autocrat Hosni Mubarak, thunderous chants of “erhal!”, or “leave!” rang out.

***

On Saturday the group announced it had more than 22 million signatures – proof, it claims, that a broad sector of the public no longer wants Morsi in office.

It was not possible to verify the claim. If true, it would be nearly twice the around 13 million people who voted for Morsi in last year’s presidential run-off election, which he won with around 52 percent of the vote. Tamarod organizers said they discarded about 100,000 signed forms because they were duplicates.

Morsi’s supporters have questioned the authenticity and validity of the signatures, but have produced no evidence of fraud.

Doug Ross: You know that totally insane Benghazi conspiracy theory? It keeps getting less totally insane by the day…

This week Raymond Ibrahim reported on a troubling Libyan intelligence document. It asserts that the Muslim Brotherhood, including Egyptian President Morsi, were involved in the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
On Wednesday, June 26, several Arabic websites … quoted the intelligence report, which apparently was first leaked to the Kuwaiti paper, Al Ra’i… It discusses the preliminary findings of the investigation, specifically concerning an “Egyptian cell” which was involved in the consulate attack. “Based on confessions derived from some of those arrested at the scene” six people, “all of them Egyptians” from the jihad group Ansar al-Sharia (“Supporters of Islamic Law), were arrested.
According to the report, during interrogations, these Egyptian jihadi cell members “confessed to very serious and important information concerning the financial sources of the group and the planners of the event and the storming and burning of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi…. And among the more prominent figures whose names were mentioned by cell members during confessions were:Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi; preacher Safwat Hegazi; Saudi businessman Mansour Kadasa, owner of the satellite station, Al-Nas; Egyptian Sheikh Muhammad Hassan; former presidential candidate, Hazim Salih Abu Isma’il…”

Walid Shoebat: Hostage Crisis: The Blind Sheikh, Benghazi and Smoking Guns:

Ever since assuming the office of President on June 30, 2012, Mursi has been extremely clearabout his strong desire to have the “Blind Sheikh” released. The Washington Post reported that Mursi “assumed office with a pledge to press the United States for Abdel Rahman’s release” and that al-Qaeda’s number one – Ayman al-Zawahiri – echoed the sentiment (EXHIBIT K).

Fox News reported on July 3, 2012, that Mursi “proclaimed to hundreds of thousands of supporters in Tahir Square… that he will gain the release of Rahman” (EXHIBIT L).

In an interview between CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Mursi from January 7th of this year, Mursi doubled down on his support for the release of Rahman (the “Blind Sheikh”) while making an appeal for sympathy for the mass murderer (EXHIBIT M):

While admitting his desire for the release of the “Blind Sheikh”, Mursi said that if release is not possible, increased visitation and freedom should be granted to Rahman. A letter attributed to Rahman appeared in an al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine (EXHIBIT N). In an article published by The Hill, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) pointed to this letter in which the convicted terrorist is credited with ordering a bombing in western Egypt in 1997 that killed dozens of people. This demonstrated that the “Blind Sheikh” still has deadly tentacles.

Four-star Admiral James Lyons (Ret.) who on November 14, 2012, appeared on Fox Business Network with Lou Dobbs (EXHIBIT O). During that interview, Lyons said he believed the only reason that made any sense relative to Ambassador Stevens being in Benghazi on 9/11 was a kidnapping operation in which Stevens could be traded for the “Blind Sheikh”:

Consider the itinerary for Ambassador Stevens, who arrived in Benghazi on 9/10/12 and was scheduled to depart on 9/14/12 (EXHIBIT P). That the State Department’s top official in Libya would be sent to Benghazi one day before the anniversary of 9/11 is indeed vexing but that he would be sent to a location that was woefully unprotected and had been attacked with an I.E.D. that blew a large hole in the perimeter wall is beyond troubling. There had been several terrorist attacks on western installations as well prior to September 11th as chronicled in a letter (EXHIBIT Q) from House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa to President Barack Obama.

I bet most if not all of Congress already knows the truth about this.

Via Bizpac review, this video provides “a comprehensive look at all of the new developments in the story, including the fact that just last week, four more subpoenas were issued for officials at the State Department,” according to Fox News. This report aired on Fox News Friday night.

Whose Side Is Obama On? (Video)

Obama has never been a president for all of the American people. From the very beginning of his Regime,  he immediately set out to divide Americans and pit us against each other. He is a president who  has been  working to demoralize, discourage and defeat a large percentage of us. For the first time in our lives, we know we have a president who is not on our side.

Frank Gaffney, The Washington Times asks  Whose side is Obama on?

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, the investigation into its perpetrators has been marred by a series of bizarre and even alarming actions by President Obama and his administration. Unfortunately, these increasingly suggest a pattern that is at odds with our national and homeland security. The question must be occurring to many Americans: Whose side is he on?

Consider just a few of the recent examples suggesting the ominous answer is “not ours”:

Team Obama decided precipitously to charge the surviving alleged bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, in civilian court. This action resulted in his being read Miranda rights and obtaining a lawyer, prompting him to refuse to answer more questions from investigators. Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy observed, “Obama was determined to end the public debate over whether the jihadist is a wartime enemy combatant or a mere criminal defendant.”

Mr. McCarthy theorizes on what is going on here: “[We] are being softened up. Steered by its Gitmo bar veterans and lawyer left compass, the Obama administration is executing a massive national-security fraud: the farce that the jihad against America can be judicialized, that civilian-court processes are a better answer to enemy warfare than are combat protocols.”

Then there is the peculiar case of the Saudi “student,” Abdul Rahman al-HarbiGlenn Beck and syndicated columnist Diana West have done yeoman’s work connecting the proverbial dots on this young man, starting with his detention at the scene of the bombing (where he was wounded) and initial designation as a “person of interest” in the investigation. The FBI reportedly spent seven hours searching his apartment but, following an in-person and unscheduled intervention with Mr. Obama by the Saudi foreign minister, Mr. al-Harbi ceased to be classified as even a witness to the jihadist attack.

Keep reading….

And with an answer to Gaffney’s question, here’s Glenn Beck: How far down the road are we with the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Arabia?

GOP Rep. Gohmert To Glenn Beck: Holder Has “Spent More Time Defending the Terrorists than Defending the Country” (Video)

Glenn Beck had Republican congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas on the show to talk about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into the highest reaches of government, and he had some astounding things to say.

On the FBI investigation into Tamerlan  Tsarnaev after being tipped off by the Russians that he was a potential terrorist, he said, “can you imagine what that interview was like?”  Because the FBI lexicon has been stripped of all references to Islamic extremism, he figured that it was “a complete waste of time.”

Beck asked Gohmert about the Judge who read Dzhokhar the Miranda rights. Gohmert noted how the  FBI was shocked but the Justice Dept wasn’t.

Referring to Holder’s days as a partner at the law firm the Washington, DC law firm of Covington & Burling, which *represented terrorists detained at Guantanamo Bay, Gohmert snarked, “When your Atty Gen has spent more time defending the terrorists than defending the country – well we all have certain biases and lean certain ways”.

As for the Muslim infiltration, he noted that “an Egyptian magazine has said that there are six members of the Muslim Brotherhood who are active and are playing a vital role in this administration, and they sent out their names.”

Glenn Beck said he believes the Regime is obviously aware of this, but Obama considers the Muslim Brotherhood, the good guys.

*One of the Guantanamo detainees, from Kuwait had contributed to an anthology of detainee poetry compiled and published by Holder’s C&B colleague, Marc Falkoff.

Falkoff likened the plight of these “gentle, thoughtful” poets, to that of the Jews who had been held in concentration camps during World War II. The aforementioned Kuwaiti was released from Guantanamo in 2005 and promptly resumed his terrorist activities. In March 2008 he blew himself up with a truck bomb in Mosul, Iraq, killing 13 Iraqi army soldiers and wounding 42 others.\

Big Government: OBAMA DEFENDS FBI, HOMELAND SECURITY ON BOSTON BOMBING FAILURES:

Obama held fewer press conferences in his first term than any of his recent predecessors. Calling a surprise press conference absent any breaking news is highly unusual. Given recent developments on several fronts, however, it is indicative of a White House on the defense. Critical missteps by the Administration have been exposed over the past two weeks.

The investigation in the Boston Marathon bombing has revealed that the FBI had been warned about Tamerlan Tsarnaev and alleged ties to terrorists back in 2011. The FBI found no evidence, at the time, to support the allegations, yet his mother was placed on the terrorist watch list that same year.

A few months after the FBI closed its investigation, Tamerlan spent 6 months abroad in an area of Russia known to be used by terror groups. He returned to the US less than a year before this month’s attack, yet the FBI never followed-up their investigation.

Soon after his brother and accomplice Dhokhar was taken into custody, a special team of federal agents began interrogating him about assistance the brothers might have received. The suspect was cooperating. While the interrogation was going on, however, a federal judge, with the apparent blessing of Eric Holder, “mirandized” the suspect, reminding him that he didn’t have to cooperate. He has since stopped answering questions.

But at his press conference, Obama upheld the work of the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, explaining, “Based on what I’ve seen so far, the FBI performed its duties. Department of Homeland Security did what it was supposed to be doing.”

Video: Greg Gutfeld And The Five Dissect And Expose Muslim Extremism And its Apologists

After a full week of watching the left go from trying to blame the tea party for the Boston bombing, to cautioning people not to speculate about motives once the suspects were identified, to actually making excuses for them, The Five’s Greg Gutfeld has had enough.

“What do hacks do when they’re wrong about terror?” Gutfeld asked.  “They cling to relativism. Yes, Muslim extremism is no different than any other kind of extremism – but in order to make that stick, you’ve got to really suck at math.”

I think he’s hit on something! Liberals are notoriously bad at math!

The Conversation: News Alert: Boston Marathon Bombing Suspects Motivated by Religion not Ben Affleck Movies:

Via the AP:

Two U.S. officials say preliminary evidence from an interrogation suggests the suspects in the Boston Marathon attack were motivated by religion but were apparently not tied to any Islamic terrorist groups.

Someone alert MSNBC host, Melissa Harris Perry, because over the weekend, she bloviated that Tsarnaev’s faith is about as relevant to the investigation as Ben Affleck movies.

Yes, really.

Her panel guests agreed and added that Americans have to “otherize” violent actors in order to absolve themselves from responsibility for or connection to their violence.

Actually, no. I feel no responsibility for, or connection to, what they did in Boston. Only seething anger, sadness, and revulsion – aka normal reactions.

“We don’t really know,” said Harris-Perry, throwing her hands up about the discussion into the Tsarnaev’s motives. “The younger brother, he’s getting all kinds of tweets from his friends. I think part of the answer is that it’s still an open question.”

Wrong again. By the time they had this discussion it was no longer an “open question.” It was pretty darn obvious that they were motivated by radical Islam. You had to be willfully blind not to have picked up on that, by then.
