Fantasy v. Reality
Legal Insurrection ^ | September 14, 2012 | Joel Engel

Posted on 09/14/2012 8:35:04 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

There has been a complete lack of reality this week in our government and media.

Words are not deeds. This is especially important to remember if you’re the President of the United States who has essentially talked himself into office.

Behold a paragraph from President Obama’s stirring acceptance speech at the convention:

"The historic change sweeping across the Arab World must be defined not by the iron fist of a dictator or the hate of extremists, but by the hopes and aspirations of ordinary people who are reaching for the same rights that we celebrate today. So now we face a choice. My opponent and his running mate are new to foreign policy, but from all that we’ve seen and heard, they want to take us back to an era of blustering and blundering that cost America so dearly.

Now take a look at this Atlantic map of Muslim protests around the world—too many of them to count without a scorecard.

Obama’s fantasy land was matched in the media.

To cap off the week in which our mainstream media beclowned themselves and proved conclusively that they are drowning in the Obama tank, the New York Times jumped the shark that jumped the shark.

On the paper’s homepage, in the above-the-banner box that appears only when there’s breaking news of importance to report but no time yet to write it up, comes the results of an…opinion poll.

And whaddya know? It’s a poll favorable to Obama?

Isn’t it time for Obama and The New York Times to throw themselves under the bus?

WAJ Adds — Just saw this — really shocking:

The State Department told reporters Friday afternoon that it won’t answer any more questions about the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans until the investigation into the incident is complete.

“I’m going to frustrate all of you, infinitely, by telling you that now that we have an open FBI investigation on the death of these four Americans, we are not going to be in a position to talk at all about what the U.S. government may or may not be learning about how any of this this happened –not who they were, not how it happened, not what happened to Ambassador Stevens, not any of it — until the Justice Department is ready to talk about the investigation that’s its got,” State Department spokeswoman Victorian Nuland told reporters late Friday afternoon.

“So I’m going to send to the FBI for those kinds of questions and they’re probably not going to talk to you about it,” she said.

Just weird how the topic was more about Romney instead of the Real News! Amazing.

We already have the sordid details.

The Arab “spring” was just an excuse to thoroughly destabilize the remaining countries holding the line for whatever reason in favor of regional stability.

When Iran was tested, did obama hop on the wagon to promote “freedom”? Of course not. He let that fire of freedom be extinguished.

But, he managed to meddle wherever it disserved our national interest.

Only blinded eyes can fail to apprehend these things.

The map is missing the campus shutdowns across the U.S. today.

I wonder how many football games will be disrupted Saturday?

Obama burned in effigy..... chants “Obama, Obama we are all Ossama”

Do you believe this is about an obscure video?

or

Was it caused by the boasting from the President of the US, the great Satan, that “bin Laden is dead, GM is alive”?

.....

The MSM and left has to deflect the blame to some video on Youtube to protect the President from embarrassment. The fact that the MSM is placing the blame elsewhere is only making the Jihadi’s even more angry and more prone to attacks.

Hey, no biggie. All the U.S. has to do is monitor YouTube now.

So begins the cover-up. The FBI will find, exactly what they're told to find.

Did anybody ever think that one regime could screw America over so much so fast?

It’s kinda amazing what these incompetent idiots have managed to destroy in under 4 years.

Obama says his grade is incomplete because he has a lot of work yet to do? I say, no Barry, you’re completely done, now hit the road ******.

They are making words/videos/phrases the culprit in an attempt to convince the Sheeple that we really need to curb the “abuse” of our Freedom of Speech. It’s just another stepping stone on the path to absolute control of the People...The are completely focused and will continue this lie because it is necessary for their goal of subjugation to come to “fruition”.

this is why we need to vote for Virgil Goode or anyone else not named Romney so we can send a message.. because we all know a protest vote is not wasted.

NO I don't believe this is about a video but what I don't understand is why these people did this NOW, before our election? They could have waited until after obozo won a 2nd term to do it. He is the best (read weakest) chance that they have.

Just an observation: The Arab street is very easily manipulated. Where is the intelligence on the manipulators? I would think they are likely members of the Muslim Brotherhood and the usual passel of crazy imams.

So why for just once, don't we bring it back to them? These simple fools are easily manipulated, why don't we do the same back to them?

Instead of dreading the million Muslim march at Tahir square, or the millions at Mecca during the haj, why don't we look at the real situation...ITS A TARGET RICH ENVIRONMENT!

No vote is ever wasted if it reflects your principles. If it sacrifices your principles on the altar of survival and victory, then and only then is it wasted.

Thanks for the ping. Obama is so incompetant, if he is reelected I see ww3 coming to our doors, of course not that it matters, as long as the people coming in our southern door get ‘free’ insurance.

The Muslim appeasing Marxist must go!

He’s deserted Prime Minster Netanyahu and Israel and lied about the stupid ‘film’ being the cause, when he and his bragging arrogance “I killed Bin-Laden”, his otherwise abandonment of M.E. countries, and apologies for the U.S. are the causes.

Those Muslims know he won’t go full board against them, when he won’t even water board!

VOTE him OUT, along with every other demonic-RAT.

Thanks for the ping. Do you have a current list of places where the peaceful religionists are expressing displeasure? I know the list continues to grow, and I’ve lost track completely.

Thanks. Wow, I can’t even count them all. Some of the tags overlap, so it’s hard to tell how many.

I’m hoping to find a list that I can copy and paste to my local news website. They don’t accept photos. Here at FR, everybody but the trolls already know what a dangerous person Obama is in the Oval Office. There are quite a few people at my local news site who are less informed. Our local news is liberal (surprise!) so they don’t inform the readers. Those of us who are informed, thanks to FR and other legitimate sources, must work overtime to get the truth out.

if it’s used on a candidate that has no chance but to spoil the general election in favor of a dictator, then I guess it’s not wasted.. the goal is achieved.
