House Authorizes Obama’s Plan To Arm and Train Syrian Rebels

al-qaeda-usaid

I really really want to be wrong about thinking this is a huge mistake, but I have a very bad feeling about arming people with values and loyalties so antithetical to ours with American weapons. My greatest fear is that these weapons will eventually be turned on American soldiers, and will lead to more Christians and ethnic minorities being slaughtered in the Middle East.

Why on earth do we think this is a good idea?

Via USA Today:

A wary Congress voted Wednesday to authorize President Obama’s mission to arm and train Syrian rebel forces as part of the administration’s effort to dismantle the threat posed by the Islamic State militant group.

The bipartisan 273-156 vote came after days of debate in which lawmakers across the political spectrum expressed doubts about the scope and merits of the mission but conceded that the potential threat to the U.S. is too great to ignore.

Roll call of the votes, here.

The authorization is limited in scope to training up to 5,000 members of the Syrian opposition in Saudi Arabia. It provides no new funding and requires the administration to provide status reports to Congress. The Obama administration said the mission may be funded by international contributions, but the resolution authorizes the Pentagon to shift funds from other accounts if necessary.

Lawmakers expressed doubts about the ability to vet the Syrian rebel forces and warned that the arms provided to them could ultimately land in enemy hands. “We don’t know if somehow down the line they will turn our guns right back on us,” said Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Calif., a member of the House Armed Services Committee, who opposed the resolution.

Sanchez also said there was not enough of an international coalition behind a strategy that is still being formed. “I’d like to know who our coalition is, and what they’re going to do before I vote for any plan,” she said.

For once I agree with Loretta Sanchez.

On Palm Sunday 2014 and the eve of the beginning of Passover,  a gunman opened fire outside the Jewish Community Center and a senior living facility in Overland Park Kansas, killing three people. Two of the victims  have been named – Dr. William Lewis Corporan, and his 14 year old nephew, Reat Griffin Underwood, both Christians, were there to audition for a show that was being held at the center’s theater.

Heartbreaking….there’s more at the Daily Mail. He was a Boy Scout with adorable dimples who loved to sing.

 Reat’s mother awed the standing room only vigil crowd that gathered at St Thomas the Apostle, Sunday night, with her words of faith. 

You can hear an audible gasp when she tells the crowd who she is – and then later – sobbing.

Authorities have not yet released the name of a woman who was killed minutes later in an attack at a Jewish retirement community a few blocks away.

The Kansas City Star reported:

People gathered to mourn the victims of the shooting at the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom during a vigil Sunday night at St. Thomas The Apostle Episcopal Church in Overland Park. Many of those in attendance were students from Blue Valley High School where Reat Underwood, one of the victims, was a student.

Police arrested Frazier Glenn Cross, a 73-year-old southwest Missouri man with a long history of anti-Semitic and racist statements, Sunday afternoon. He was booked into the Johnson County jail at 8:48 p.m. on suspicion of premediated first-degree murder but was not immediately charged.

Cross smiled and made an anti-Semitic statement when he was arrested outside Valley Park Elementary near the Jewish Community Center.

Police said the shooter used a shotgun in the slayings at the Jewish Community Center. He also had a handgun when he was arrested.

“We are investigating it as a hate crime,” said Overland Park Police Chief, but investigators are not sure of the motive.

Public records show that Cross, who lives in Aurora, Mo., a small town in Lawrence County, southwest of Springfield also uses the name Frazier Glenn Miller.

It is very safe to assume the “hate crime” angle given Miller’s White Supremacist background and the fact that he (according to witnesses) yelled, “heil Hitler” as he was being arrested. His website is http://www.whty.org/

Frazier Glenn Miller is the founder of the White patriot’s Party which was formerly the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and relocated to Aurora, MO in 2002 where he published racist newsletters.. He ran into trouble with the law in the ’80’s for threatening war against blacks, Jews, gays and the Federal government.

The former leader of the White Patriot Party, F. Glenn Miller Jr., was captured along with three other men, identified as Tony Wydra, Robert (Jack) Jackson and Douglas Sheets, said an agent of the Federal Bureau Investigation, Bob Davenport, and a United States Marshal, Lee Koury. 

Mr. Miller, 46 years old, was convicted in North Carolina last year of operating a paramilitary training camp and was freed on bond pending appeal. He was charged in a warrant last week with violating the conditions of his bond and was wanted as a fugitive. 

Last week the United States Attorney in Raleigh, N.C., Sam Currin, said that Mr. Miller had mailed 5,000 letters attacking Jews, blacks, homosexuals, Government officials and ”white race traitors.”


In 1984, Miller ran for Governor of NC as a Democrat, garnering 0% of the vote. In 1986, he ran for the US Senate in NC as a Republican, garnering 0% of the votes. Reportedly, when he ran for US Congress in 2006, both parties refused to accept his filing fee check – so he ran as an Independent in a write – in campaign.. He tried another write in campaign in 2010 for US Senate, again as an Independent.

Miller’s political ads were so outrageously racist, radio stations petitioned the FCC for an exemption from being required to air them.

…the FCC’s Media Bureau responded with informal, oral advice that “on the facts and pleadings submitted by all parties, including Mr. Miller, it would not be unreasonable for Missouri broadcasting stations to determine that Miller is not a bona fide write-in candidate and therefore, Missouri broadcasters may deny him access to their stations.”

Here’s one of his ads.

 

Law enforcement officials say they have no evidence that the Sunday’s shooting at the Jewish center is related to the KC area highway shootings – but it’s something I imagine they are looking into.

 

 

Cruz: “Those Who Lionize Convicted Cop Killers are Not Suitable for Major Leadership Roles at the DOJ” (Video)

Tomorrow, Obama’s race-baiting pick to head the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Dept, will get his up or down confirmation vote in the Senate. Obama had to search long and hard to find someone even more radical than now Labor Sec Thomas Perez, but by Gosh – he did it with cop killer advocate,  Debo Adegbile.

The FBI Agents Association, National Fraternal Order of Police, Major County Sheriff’s Association, National Association of Police Organizations, National Sheriff’s Assoc, and the New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association have all come out in public opposition to the nomination of Adegbile. But most Democrats will vote in lock step to confirm him tomorrow because that’s how Democrats roll. Vulnerable Democrats running for reelection in red states may think twice, however. Not because it would be the right thing to do, but to save their own hides.

Paul Mirengoff of Powerline reports:

Unless half a dozen or so Democrats vote no, the race hustler will be confirmed.

Pennsylvania Democrat Bob Casey has said he will vote no. Philadelphia, of course, was the scene of Mumia’s crime and of the disgraceful “free Mumia” movement. It is telling, therefore, that Pennsylvania’s Democratic Senator can’t swallow Adegbile’s confirmation.

Will other Democrats join Casey? Not unless, like Casey, they perceive that doing so will enhance their electoral prospects. Time and time again we’ve seen that the Democratic Senate majority marches in lock-step except where the electoral imperative dictates otherwise. Conscience and considerations of basic decency are never factors.

Fortunately, as Roll Call observes, “several Democrats up for re-election in swing or conservative states might think twice about wading into the hornets’ nest that surrounds Abu-Jamal.” Roll Call cites Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Mark Warner of Virginia, and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire. Perhaps Mark Udall of Colorado should also be included, especially now

that he is likely to face strong opposition in November.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, registered his opposition to the nomination on the Senate floor today while honoring the brave service of America’s fallen police officers.

 “It is out of respect for our nation’s police officers that I rise to oppose the nomination of Debo Adegbile to be the head of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division,” Sen. Cruz said. “We must remember our nation’s fallen police officers who have bravely given their lives to serve our nation and to protect us. They form the backbone of our country that supports the rule of law and they risk their lives every day to keep law-abiding Americans safe.”

In his remarks, the Senator noted that although every criminal defendant is entitled to an attorney, Adegbile’s representation of Mumia Abu-Jamal, a man convicted of murdering Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981, was pure political advocacy. Abu-Jamal’s guilt was not in doubt – four eyewitnesses saw the shooting and Abu-Jamal confessed and stated in front of three witnesses that he hoped that Officer Faulkner died. And although Abu-Jamal already had a team of high-priced volunteer lawyers that had filed dozens of petitions and appeals, Adegbile and his team joined the case in 2009, 27 years after Faulkner’s death, and then began politicizing it. Under Adegbile’s supervision, rallies, protests, and media campaigns instead dishonestly portrayed Abu-Jamal as a political prisoner and victim of racial injustice.

“This is not a matter of left wing or right wing politics,” Sen. Cruz continued. “We all should agree that violent criminals should be punished. We should all agree that those who advocate for, celebrate, lionize convicted cop killers are not suitable for major leadership roles at the United States Department of Justice. I urge every member of this body to oppose this nomination.”

In addition to his voluntary defense of a convicted cop-killer, Adegbile has a record of opposing common-sense voter ID laws, attacking religious liberties, advocating federal interference in religious institutions, and opposing Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

I agree with Paul Mirengoff that with Dingy’s blessing, some of the vulnerable Dems will join Casey in opposition, leaving Reid with just enough votes to confirm Obama’s race-baiting selection to head the Civil Rights Division.”

In any event, we encourage constituents of Democratic Senators, especially the endangered ones, to make their views known. Here are some of the relevant phone numbers:

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!: 

 

The Regime Has a Stranglehold on the Republic and it’s not Letting Go

Jay Carney took not a single question at his press briefing, Monday, pertaining to CNN’s blockbuster story about CIA intimidation of Benghazi witnesses. Not a single question. Not even the CNN reporter questioned him about it.

Apparently, reporters are fearful that pushing the story will cost them White House access: Perhaps the White House has issued its own Stream of Threatening Chatter.

Some CNN reporters are reportedly fearful now that their access to the White House will be hampered following their probing into a story that members of the Obama administration would prefer remain uninvestigated.“Access is a very serious consideration when it comes to stories that could adversely impact a show, correspondent, or network’s relationship with the administration, a campaign, or any political leader,” one source with insider information told Mediaite.

Nobody considers suppressing stories by denying access a scandal in and of itself?

The stench of this corrupt Regime, its willing allies in the media, and the AWOL Republicans has  becoming suffocating.

I mean look at this – a few days ago, the indispensable  Keith Koffler tallied the number of real Obama scandals plaguing the country to 24 and counting.

President Obama claims that Republicans are busy probing “phony scandals.” But the sheer number of scandals suggests that misbehavior, abuse of power, and possibly corruption are not something being dreamed up by the GOP, but a defining characteristic of the Obama administration.

The number has grown since then. Now we have Obama Wastes Hundreds of Millions on “Worker Training” and Obama’s Utterly Corrupt, unilateral Rewriting of ObamaCare to benefit Congressmen and their staffers.

This guy just keeps ignoring the law and the Constitution, and apparently nobody seems to care.

It’s getting to the point where a massive act of civil disobedience seems to be our only remedy. We can’t use the courts because we will be denied standing. We can’t petition Congress because they are the ones benefiting from this. What choice do we have, other than to say: if you won’t obey the law, why should we?

Of course, the reason is: if we don’t obey the law, they will point guns at us and make us go to jail. If they don’t obey the law, they’ll just rewrite it so the law says what they want it to say.

Oh, and fresh off the presses: Exclusive: U.S. directs agents to cover up program used to investigate Americans:

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin – not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.

When does it end?

Obama could publicly declare himself Dictator for life and the Republicans would do nothing more than give some impassioned speeches and then maybe hold him in Contempt of Congress, and that would be it, because any response stronger than that could get them branded as racists and we can’t have that. . And then in two years they’ll try to retake the Senate by running as the anti-Dictatorship party, but they’ll lose because we’ll be living under a friggin’ dictatorship and the elections will be rigged.

People are alarmed and getting desperate. The scandals are horrifying and Washington doesn’t seem to be listening.

Tomorrow, during rush hour traffic, conservative activists from all across the nation will be manning overpasses with Impeach Obama banners. See the Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment facebook page for details.

It’s a cry for help.

Tea Party Nation goes there, Is Obama ‘Wagging the Dog?’

Is Barack Obama using the diversionary tactic known as Wag the Dog in order to justify his massively unconstitutional spying on ALL American citizens?  Are the closing of 21 foreign embassies in 17 countries because of real threats, or are they contrived by a corrupt regime in order to communicate the message, “See, we’ve uncovered all these terrorist attacks with NSA spying programs that we wouldn’t have otherwise known about. You don’t want to blow up do you? Don’t you want to be safe? If we stop spying on you, then terrorist attacks like the ones that were going to happen at foreign embassies would be left unchecked.” 

Am I accusing Obama of wagging the dog in regards to closing the Mid-east embassies? Am I saying that the threats aren’t real? Am I saying that the President of the United States would purposely lie about a terrorist attack (or in this case, a proposed one) for strictly political purposes?  I’m simply posing a question.

Oh that’s just wingnut crazy talk….

Yeah, you know what was crazy? Funneling guns to drug cartels in Mexico and blaming it on one ATF office in Phoenix.

You know what else was crazy? Blaming the Benghazi attack on a YouTube video.

You know what else was crazy? Blaming the IRS targeting on one IRS office in Cincinnati.

You know what else is crazy? Believing anything this Regime puts out at face value.

We’ve reached critical mass. The Regime has 0 credibility with Americans who pay attention. People don’t trust their government and don’t know what to believe.

Why is Obama Sending Tanks and F-16s to Muslim Brotherhood-Led Egypt? (Video)

In a video taken September 23, 2010, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said, “no reasonable person can expect any progress on this track. Either [you accept] the Zionists and everything they want, or else it is war. This is what these occupiers of the land of Palestine know – these blood-suckers, who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.”

Morsi also promoted “all forms of resistance” against Israel, calling for military resistance against the “criminal Zionists” along with supporting “resistance fighters,” i.e. terrorists who attack Israeli civilians. He called on Muslims and Arabs all over the world to “support” such fighters, but did not specify what such support entails. He called on “Zionists” to be “driven out of our countries.” He stated that he does not recognize the “Green Line.” Morsi also called for boycotts against Israel and all countries that support it, including the United States.

Egypt and the United States held a joint ceremony  in Cairo, Sunday,  to mark the delivery of new F-16 aircraft to the Egyptian Air Force…

Why in God’s name are we arming our enemy?

“Today’s ceremony demonstrates the firm belief of the United States that a strong Egypt is in the interest of the U.S., the region, and the world,” said U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne W. Patterson. “We look to Egypt to continue to serve as a force for peace, security, and leadership as the Middle East proceeds with its challenging yet essential journey toward democracy.”

The U.S. delivery of four aircraft is part of a group of 20 F-16s that will arrive in Egypt over the course of the year. To date, the U.S. has delivered 224 F-16 aircraft to Egypt.

“Our thirty-four year security partnership is based upon shared interests and mutual respect,” said Ambassador Patterson. “The United States has long recognized Egypt as an indispensible partner.”

The F-16s are part of the $1.3 billion in the Foreign Military Financing (FMF) program from the U.S. in annual military and security assistance to improve Egypt’s defensive capabilities and support Egypt’s contributions to regional security that counter terrorist threats.

That explanation expired after the “Arab Spring” of 2011. It’s no longer operable in a Muslim Brotherhood led Egypt. What in the world is the Regime thinking?

In an appearance on Fox and Friends,  an exasperated Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said the decision to supply Morsi with the aircraft and tanks is consistent with what we recently found out is this administration’s foreign policy: “What difference does it make?! What difference does it make if we give weapons to our sworn enemies who want to wipe Israel and us off the map – so we give them the method to wipe them out – what’s the big deal?”

He continued, “we’re putting ourselves in danger when we’re sending jets and tanks to a leader whose only two enemies he’s said in the past are Israel and the United States.”

“This is going to help give Egypt an edge over Israel – they’ll have more M-16s than Israel, as I understand it.”

A Coptic Christian who called into the Sean Hannity Show, Monday, said that Sending F-16s and tanks to Morsi is like sending them to Osama bin Laden.

We’re also giving Egypt four Fast Missile Craft ships which cost the American people 2 billion dollars.

The first of four new fast missile craft for Egypt was dedicated Oct. 25 at a shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss., and the ship’s name was announced.

The S. Ezzat is named after Soliman Ezzat, the admiral who founded and led the modern Egyptian Navy from 1953 to 1967, shipbuilder VT Halter Marine said in a press release.

Construction of the ship began in a newly built fabrication facility at VT Halter in November 2009 under a U.S. Navy Foreign Military Sales program managed by the U.S. Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command.

The original contract for the program was awarded to VT Halter in November 2005. Since then, the U.S. has awarded the shipbuilder more than $800 million for the ships.

Mark Levin exploded on his talk show, a few days ago: “What the hell is this President doing sending F-16s to the regime in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood?!” he thundered.

“[They] ask questions about the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of our own government, and they’re treated like pariahs,” an agitated Levin shouted. “Well, the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated our government — it’s called Barack Obama! No, he’s not a formal member; he’s a sympathizer. There, I said it! Prove otherwise.”

In August of 2011, I reported that the Muslim Brotherhood Has Infiltrated White House.

Why would the President nominate someone like Chuck Hagel, as Levin noted, a sympathizer with the most radical elements in the Middle East, and an Israel hater? Obviously, the President and Hagel are simpatico on foreign policy. The real question is will Senate Republicans wave him through? Although Mitch McConnell raised the possibility of a Senate filibuster, Monday, it’s looks to me like Senate Republicans have no stomach for a fight on this.

None of this is going to end well.

AhramOnline reported: NSF blames President Morsi for Tahrir sexual assaults, police violence:

The opposition National Salvation Front (NSF) has condemned a recent spate of violent attacks on peaceful protesters.

 In a statement on Sunday, the front claimed organised violence, including sexual attacks using knives on female protesters, was designed to prevent people expressing their views.

President Mohamed Morsi, his government and the interior minister are responsible for the violence and torture, the front said. They have failed to protect peaceful protesters from attacks by militias and thugs, such as those carried out against women in Tahrir Square.

“These organised mob sexual assaults cannot be separated from the oppressive tactics [of the security forces] and the use of torture and intimidation against revolutionaries,” read the statement.

Such tactics would not stop women from participating in Egypt’s political life, it added.

Dozens of mob sexual assaults have taken place around Tahrir Square during recent protests. Many argue the attacks are systematic and organised.
