Egyptian Egg on Obama’s Face (It's a Gigantic Egg)
Townhall.com ^ | July 7, 2013 | Michael Youssef

Posted on 07/07/2013 7:51:10 AM PDT by Kaslin

In 2011, President Obama quickly called on President Mubarak to acquiesce to demonstrators’ demands and leave office.

With Mubarak out of the way, Obama proceeded to support the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, who succeeded in stealing the revolution.

Obama’s support extended to an ex-con named Muhammad Morsi. By his own admission, Morsi was in prison during the January 25 demonstration. But he was in contact with members of Hamas, who broke into the prison and freed Morsi and other Muslim Brotherhood prisoners.

When Morsi ran for the presidency, Obama continued to support him, even when it was clear that the close election was rigged by dubious tactics.

With six possible Muslim Brotherhood operatives working in the Obama administration, and Obama’s full-fledged support of Morsi, you would think that Egyptians would be in love with Obama. But the deeply troubled Egyptian public is in no way enamored with this White House. Quite the contrary.

More than 40 percent of Egyptian citizens currently must survive on about $2 US per day. Lines to purchase gasoline stretch on for hours. The lines for a tank of propane—needed for cooking and other necessities of life—extend for up to nine hours. Electricity is cut off from 2-3 hours per night.

When the Egyptian masses finally couldn’t take it anymore, 22 million people signed a petition to recall Morsi’s election—more than twice the number of people than originally voted for him.

Then something totally unprecedented happened: 30 million people took to the streets. The largest mass demonstration in human history.

The Egyptian Army had tried on many occasions to mediate between President Morsi and the opposition. But Morsi autocratically and arrogantly refused to talk to anyone other than his masters in the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters.

In order to avoid the stigma of a coup, the military leaders met with a cross-section of the Egyptian population and religious leaders, including Islamists. As a result, they produced a wise plan calling for an election and appointing the chief justice of the Supreme Court as the interim president.

But here is the irony: while millions of Egyptians responded to Morsi’s ouster by joyfully dancing in the streets, the Muslim Brotherhood advisors in the White House helped Obama produce a non-descript statement. With his wishy-washy message about those who are democratically elected, Obama confirmed in Egyptian minds that he is in the pocket of the Muslim Brotherhood.

It is downright depressing to see the leader of the free world unable to comprehend the Islamic understanding of democracy. To the Islamist, democracy means “one man, one vote, one time.” Once they have their power, there’s no reason to ever have another election.

Thank God for the wise and courageous Egyptian people who comprehended that plan and stopped it before it was too late.

And thank God for the persecuted Christians in Egypt who have cried out to God while withstanding injustice during the reign of the Muslim Brotherhood. As a committed Christian, I believe God has heard their cries, even when President Obama covered his ears. They have set an example for every harassed believer in the world, including in America, to pray and hope that God will hear our prayers.

What the heck do you mean "even when"?? That fact alone probably got him ten points in The Won's score book.

Does anyone with a functioning brain think the DICKtator will adhear to this law?

Law requires Obama administration to cut off Egyptian aid

The $1.5 billion in U.S. foreign aid slated for Egypt next year is in jeopardy after the Egyptian army deposed democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday. Section 508 of the decades-old Foreign Assistance Act stipulates that “none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available pursuant to this Act shall be obligated or expended to finance directly any assistance to any country whose duly elected head of government is deposed by a military coup or decree.” A clause in the 2011 omnibus bill strengthens the provision, excluding from American aid any nation experiencing a “coup d’etat or decree in which the military plays a decisive role.”

It is a rhetorical question, no need to respond.

wow-I wonder if the protest signs with Obama’s pics will be in the future history books written in America about this event? /s

Imagine, as part of your “legacy”, being one of the reasons for the biggest protest in history-so big it could be seen from space? And it wasn’t even in your own country but you were so despised, they couldn’t leave you-a Peace Prize recipient- out of it?

Obama can’t spin the whole world anymore either-2008 is soooo over and they are done blowing him kisses...

Just about everything suggested in your rant is not limited to 0bama. The serious situation of US engagement within the sphere of foreign intrigue has been an on-going re-occurrence since 1948; the legal creation of the CIA which has been meddling around the world for over 60 years now.

All around the world, these “pet political projects” are boomeranging upon the people of the US. Why? Because the US government represents the US citizenry.

Ted Cruz made an excellent statement re the failures of Herr Obozo in Egypt:

Texas Republican Sen.Ted Cruz blasted the Obama administration’s policy toward Egypt in a scathing op-ed in Foreign Policy magazine, slamming the president’s stance on the Muslim Brotherhood “one of the most stunning diplomatic failures in recent memory.”

As the Egyptian military ends President Mohamed Morsi’s rule, Cruz points out that the ire of many people in the streets of Cairo is not reserved for the Muslim Brotherhood alone.

“The people protesting in the streets were not only carrying anti-Morsi signs,” Cruz writes. “They were also carrying signs with slogans like ‘Obama Supports Terrorism’ and ‘Obama Supports Morsi,’ as well as pictures of the American ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson, with a large red ‘X’ through her face.”

Below are some examples of the pictures and signs carried by the enemies of Herr Obozo, the Egyptian People in Cairo as noted by Ted Cruz. These photos will not appear in the MSM.

A “One and done” election is a great cover story for pseudo-democracy leading to Obama-backed Muslim Brotherhood domination. Phony as all heck. But, the military does not appear to be a bunch of choir boys either.

Oh please, I have to commute two hours every day listening mostly to the news-- the media have their knee pads on for Obama every single day-- the vast majority of Americans will hear about Egypt, the NSA, and the IRS scandals.

But they will never hear anything pinning the blame on the Obama administration-- look at how the State Department just flat out lied to their faces about Lurch being out sailing while Egypt goes up in flames. I'm sure most everyone heard the State Department denial, but only a few heard the truth.

Nothing will change unless some state governments step up to the plate and start nullifying federal laws and regulations and start arresting federal officials.

The US is already a 'soft' despotism (see Steyn's recent stories on the bunny regulation enforcers) where you can be threatened to be fined into bankruptcy with no legal recourse. We're only a few steps away from political opponents of the regime and priests being arrested and jailed on trumped-up charges for "civil rights" violations for opposing "gay marriage" or abortion.

We can all talk about how we will "resist" individually, but that just means we'll be picked-off one by one. We need politically organized resistance backed by armed men, which is a combination only the state governments have in sufficient measure to be effective.

Sounds like a populace-driven election without paper ballots, with security provided by the military, ousted Morsi. That doesn’t sound quite like a military coup in the traditional sense to me.

The signs are in English because they are meant to be read by us, the Americans. And they are being read by American. It’s one of the benefits of our technological world

No idea who made them, but, unlike Rachel Jantel, I’m sure that a lot of Egyptians can read and speak English.

Egypt's version of campaign promise reform, and for a guy who's making campaigning 24/7 the new American Presidency, it sets a scary example of what could (should) happen to him.

When Obama gets scared he gets quiet, or at best mousey and squishy. Certainly nowhere near all wee-wee'd up! No eat your peas moments. No their turn in the back of the bus. No descriptions of what his son/s might look like.

If Obama were in a Morsi situation, what would his first reactions be?

1) Have the NSA pull the plug on all obamaphones.

2) Ask Eric Holder to call up his buddies Potts & Horriuchi.

3) Recall all amounts available on all EBT cards to any merchants in the protest areas.

4) Set up safe havens for all LGBT's, with refreshments Michelle's approved drinks list includes, no larger than 12 oz size.

5) Find some young men who might look like his sons if he had any. This is for future use no matter which side wins.

6) Call the SEIU to mix in with the crowd and tag or mark them with identifiers so the Teamsters can beat them to death at a point out of view of the cameras.

7) Find a global warming effect from the gathering and mobs in order to write an executive order banning the event. Email that executive order to Lisa Jackson's dog's email account to mobilize drone strikes.

Those are just a few.

“When did English become Egypt’s language? Why are the signs in English? Who made them?”

English is a common second language among the millions of unemployed college grads in Egypt.

I don’t know who printed/made the signs. It probably wasn’t the DNC, ACORN, WHITE HOUSE, or Muslim Brotherhood.

Several years ago, we had the same experience (power outage -- spoiled food). Since then, I've kept a few plastic jugs of salt-water ice in the freezer. When the power goes out for a few hours (a fairly frequent event, thanks to squirrels in summer, and ice in winter); the salt-water ice melts first, and saves the food from thawing even a bit. This simple expedient works for at least half a day.

If you try this, it's important to use salt water, not fresh. That's because salt water melts (goes through phase change) at a much lower temperature than fresh water. Because of the "latent heat of melting (or freezing)" the sacrificial salty ice can save a lot of expensive groceries.

I hadn’t thought of that. I see where the frozen saltwater will absorb heat, then go through a phase transformation and maintaining the same temperature until the transformation is complete and its transition temp will be lower than potable water.

Exactly right (and succinctly put).

I should have mentioned that it’s necessary to make sure that your salty water actually freezes. Very salty water freezes at 0*F (that’s how Fahrenheit originally calibrated his scale). If your freezer isn’t set to sub-zero temperatures, you will have to dilute the salt until it actually freezes. If it doesn’t actually freeze, it won’t be very effective.
