The Supreme Military Council met with Mubarak and as I have said time and time again it is NOT going to pan out the way Obama wants it. There was false rumors stating Mubarak was going to resign, its not true, the truth is Mubarak is very ill, his health has been stressed and the Army is fed up. (They leaked the false report to the media to see who they carried the message to in the mobs hierarchy. They are going to declare Martial Law, its going to get ugly.
The Supreme Military council during a meeting yesterday stated in one voice, We will not be ordered around by the Obama regime and we will not hand over Egypt to the bastards he supports. If they think Mubarak is a tyrant they have seen nothing.

Little Leaguer suddenly hits the big time. Predictable result.
I don’t understand the title.
WOW! Thanks for posting.
How reliable is the source?
This meddlesome occupant of the White House is showing he truely had no qualifications for the office of President.
How wonderful it would be to see Obama have his head handed to him on a plate.
Wow. We don’t know who this Israeli source is, or how reliable what he says is. But I find it entirely believable. And powerful.
I’d like to see this spread around—although the source is unknown.
Have you ever witnessed a horse race?
It does explain some recent developments.
[Looks like Obama’s community organizing, anti-colonialist, media manipulating strategy is not paying off in Egypt.]
When all you have is a hammer (community organizing/rabble rouser revolutionary) is anyone surprised which way this is headed! A grand experiment in leftist ideology.
Look’s like we will have to return zero’s Nobel Peace Prize
“tea party nation”...what’s the tea party got to do with egypt?
btw, inside straight is a cardgame term, as in poker.
tap to monitor.
Potatoes do not get hotter than this.
I think that Gose happens to belong to the Tea Party Nation, suggesting that she is a conservative who would oppose the idea of Obama handing Egypt and perhaps the whole Middle East over to the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists.
And she happens to have an insider friend in Israel.
Note that the anonymous Israeli source says that he got this report on the meeting between Mubarak and his army council from an Egyptian attache. And I find that rather probable—because Israel and the Egyptian government, though opposed in many ways, have a strong common interest in keeping the Muslim Brotherhood from taking over the neighborhood.
This is encouraging anyway. I caught what Mubarak said about not letting other nations order him to step down. I knew he was talking about obammy. It gives credence to this report about what was said in the meeting.
I just found this post... it is an interesting ‘take’ on what we witnessed today...
Yeah. I know. Potato.
the problemis these idiots who haven’t worked with Middle Eastern countries/citizen have no clue how different they really are than the USA. Take for example the reporters who got their asses handed to them, guess what Skippy? Not everyone treats the press like the USA does. Obama has insulted a dictator and an Arab warrior, he will rue this day.

President Obama on Egypt
Posted by Jesse Lee on February 10, 2011 at 07:59 PM EST
Moments ago, the President released the statement below:
The Egyptian people have been told that there was a transition of authority, but it is not yet clear that this transition is immediate, meaningful or sufficient. Too many Egyptians remain unconvinced that the government is serious about a genuine transition to democracy, and it is the responsibility of the government to speak clearly to the Egyptian people and the world. The Egyptian government must put forward a credible, concrete and unequivocal path toward genuine democracy, and they have not yet seized that opportunity.
As we have said from the beginning of this unrest, the future of Egypt will be determined by the Egyptian people. But the United States has also been clear that we stand for a set of core principles. We believe that the universal rights of the Egyptian people must be respected, and their aspirations must be met. We believe that this transition must immediately demonstrate irreversible political change, and a negotiated path to democracy. To that end, we believe that the emergency law should be lifted. We believe that meaningful negotiations with the broad opposition and Egyptian civil society should address the key questions confronting Egypts future: protecting the fundamental rights of all citizens; revising the Constitution and other laws to demonstrate irreversible change; and jointly developing a clear roadmap to elections that are free and fair.
We therefore urge the Egyptian government to move swiftly to explain the changes that have been made, and to spell out in clear and unambiguous language the step by step process that will lead to democracy and the representative government that the Egyptian people seek. Going forward, it will be essential that the universal rights of the Egyptian people be respected. There must be restraint by all parties. Violence must be forsaken. It is imperative that the government not respond to the aspirations of their people with repression or brutality. The voices of the Egyptian people must be heard.
The Egyptian people have made it clear that there is no going back to the way things were: Egypt has changed, and its future is in the hands of the people. Those who have exercised their right to peaceful assembly represent the greatness of the Egyptian people, and are broadly representative of Egyptian society. We have seen young and old, rich and poor, Muslim and Christian join together, and earn the respect of the world through their non-violent calls for change. In that effort, young people have been at the forefront, and a new generation has emerged. They have made it clear that Egypt must reflect their hopes, fulfill their highest aspirations, and tap their boundless potential. In these difficult times, I know that the Egyptian people will persevere, and they must know that they will continue to have a friend in the United States of America.

Sure would be nice to see Code Pink operatives suck on the business end of an Egyptian .50 cal.
What are ‘universal rights?’ Where did this phrase come from recently? Is it another leftist term like social justice?
What does this have to do with The Tea Party?
Sorta but more global in its application.
I can't wait until the adults come back in 2012. Can we survive until then or will Obama set up the Apocalypse in his quest for world community organizing? Obama, Clapper and Panetta today made very dangerous statements. . May God help us all. Pray for America and Israel. Prepare. . .
It’s just 0bami being confused again. I’m sure he means “inalienable rights endowed by our creator”, right???
The Supreme Military council during a meeting yesterday stated in one voice, We will not be ordered around by the 0bama regime and we will not hand over Egypt to the bastards he supports. If they think Mubarak is a tyrant they have seen nothing.
. . . . Check out article at link.
If the article is correct—I read it all—this is not a hot potato: It is twice baked!
So any guesses who they selected to plant the rumor? Didn't the CIA director say he got his information like everybody else from the media?
He makes Harry Truman or Jerry Ford, ON THEIR FIRST DAYS AS PRESIDENT, look like George Washington or Ronald Reagan on their final day.
Did Obama really make this public statement??? It sounds like Chicago huff-n-puff politics,but hasn’t he and his enablers got the message Mubarak was sending?
Be careful what you organize.
I also do not understand the title either. An inside straight generally means a long shot, or a bad bet. A general rule in Draw Poker is: Do not draw on an inside straight. This is because there is only a 9% chance of completing it. For instance if you are dealt the 2, 3, 10, 5, 6 of mixed suits and discard the 10 hoping to draw a 4 you only have a 9% chance of completing your hand. With an open end straight such as 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 you could discard the 10 as there us a 17% chance of completing your hand drawing either an Ace or 6 to complete.
So the title might mean the Tea Party Nation has little chance of achieving something. But what it is I do not know. The title does not make sense to me.
It’s a United Nations thing:
Where did this phrase come from recently?
It's not recent...
President Obama Speaks Out on Iran Violence December 28, 2009
The United States will always bear witness for and stand by those in Iran, and around the world, who seek to exercise their universal human rights.
It's just been used more 'recently'.
Is it another leftist term like social justice?
As for myself I would say...
A 1998 sign up and you don't know about this stuff?
H*LL NO! NOT AS LONG AS WE LIVE AND BREATHE! (Whoops! That's all about Egypt...)
“I also do not understand the title either. An inside straight generally means a long shot, or a bad bet. A general rule in Draw Poker is: Do not draw on an inside straight.

Although the title probably could have been better, I believe what it’s trying to convey is that the Tea Party unexpectedly had some unlikely good fortune - in other words it successfully drew the inside straight (”has”) against the odds.
A poor way of stating that 0 is looking like a complete fool given the unfolding events in Egypt. In general anything bad that happens to 0 is a good thing. I hope he fails, and he seems to be doing well at it. ;-)
0 as President has been an expert at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
“It is twice baked!”
Obama’s half-baked pronouncements needed a twice-baked response.
Thanks for the explanation of an inside straight, which I’ve heard repeatedly, but never actually understood until your explanation (I obviously spend too much time on FR and too little time playing poker).
The actual title of the post was: “Tea Party Nation has the inside straight on Egypt” It then says “Kathleen Gose at Tea Party Nation writes:” and proceeds to provide all this “insider” information about what’s going on.
I’m wondering whether the blogger didn’t simply mean that TPN (meaning Kathleen Gose at TPN) has the “inside dope” or “inside information” on what’s really going on. I don’t see how the blogger could have really intended to say “inside straight” unless she didn’t know the meaning of the term, i.e., that it meant the opposite of what she thought it did.
If Islam can cause problems in European countries where it is a tiny minority, one can only imagine what it will do where it is a great majority. Democracy in a country dominated by vampires produces a vampire democracy.
I think his background is more of hammer and sickle, watch what he cuts off...
To my knowledge, there has only been ONE reasonably free, Democratic country in North Africa or the Middle East in the past 1500 years or so (excluding Israel).
That country was Lebanon, where they had a coalition government of Christians and Muslims. I say WAS, because the Muslims revolted, Syria intervened, and the Democracy in Lebanon vanished.
Islam is incapable of building a Democracy, because the religion of Mohammed denies the existence of free will or free choice. It’s all about submission to a completely arbitrary and irrational god, or his human representatives on earth. Islam and freedom are simply incompatible.
If the truth will set you free, what can one say of a "religion" that enslaves you?
Thanks. That must be it.
I don't think too many people today know what an Inside Straight is. And there are several Poker terms that have found their way into the vernacular and lost some of their original meaning. For instance "passing the buck". And Poker itself is changing all the time. I have no idea what the terms "The River" and "The Turn" mean in Texas Holdem because I have pretty much lost interest in Poker.
