    Walid Shoebat, a former Muslim Brotherhood member now peace activist broke news Saturday night that anti-Al Qaeda Libyans living in exile are in possession of highly classified documents that reveal Obama and his administration’s involvement with Al-Qaeda in Libya, more than what has been previously known. The anti-Al Qaeda Libyans told Shoebat in reference to Obama’s statements that Al-Qaeda had been destroyed that Obama had gift-wrapped Libya, handed it over to Al-Qaeda, and that they can prove it. The group plans to turn over the countless documents an intelligence to the National Center For Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism. The group informed...

    Talking about the election to many friends and family who had been rooting for Romney , I found their emotions ran the entire gamut from despair to despondency. Everybody was way down. I found myself unexpectedly blue as well. Our emotions were not so much caused by the Romney defeat. Few of us were particularly excited about him. It was the Obama victory that concerned us . . . . . . Yes, a little over half of the people who voted, a little over 60 million people, thought Obama deserved a second term. But about 59 million (the combined...

    With Obama's reelection, there is absolutely no reason for Israel to wait any longer to attack Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu knows that America/Obama will not be there to aid them.That also means Obama will not be able to interfere with Israel's plan for a raid on Iran any longer. IDF_AirforceWe now know that -- as we reported some days ago now -- the Obama Regime has been secretly negotiating with Iran -- behind Israel's back -- for some sort of compromise deal on suspending Iran's endeavor to create the "Islam Bomb" (An Atomic Bomb).

    BALTIMORE (CBSDC) — Attorney General Eric Holder might not be sticking around for a second term. Holder told law school students at the University of Baltimore School of Law that he does not know if he will stay in his job. “That’s something that I’m in the process now of trying to determine,” Holder said. “I have to think about, can I contribute in a second term?” Holder says he needs to sit down with his family and President Obama to see if he wants to continue on the job. “[I have to] really ask myself the question about, do...

    This is a long post, but in light of current political situation it benefits those that take the time to read it. No doubt many people are waking up today and wondering what has become of our nation. I'm there myself. I've often said that if President Obama were re-elected, I would have to do an extra two years in the military because I want someone else signing my retirement certificate. Today, I just can't see that happening either. I find myself increasing looking at either early retirement or going ahead with the medical retirement I've been hoping to avoid....

    Washington Barack Obama’s reelection was barely sealed before some international voices began trumpeting how the president’s victory would mean a renewed American focus on foreign policy issues that languished during the campaign. President Obama could now revive the search for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, international Middle East envoy Tony Blair said. The US will be bolder now in pressing for a resolution of Syria’s deadly and dangerous civil war, some US allies, including Turkish officials, predicted. Have these foreign friends heard of the “fiscal cliff”? (Snip) Mr. Obama will no doubt be looking broadly to

    It is being suggested that President Obama's reelection was at leaset in part helped by the auto industry bailouts , or more accurately, the portrayal of the bailouts by the president and the media. It is therefore important to surmise that the precedent setting auto bankruptcy proceedings saw billions of taxpayer dollars used to not only help the industry, but to fund the reelection of the sitting president that orchestrated the process. The greatest travesty of the 2012 election campaign may have been that the auto bailouts were never properly debated. The main point should not have been whether or...

Delaying job-killing regulations until after the November election, the EPA is currently sitting on numerous proposed rules sure to increase the cost of energy. A recent report from Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.) unearths thirteen EPA regulations likely to hit American consumers should President Obama be reelected. ... 316 (b)...

    According to the Naval Enlisted Reserve Association, scores of military absentee ballots cast in the 2012 Election will not be counted. U.S. Military personnel and their families are outraged: “Where the hell is this country’s moral compass?!” stated the mother of a 25 year old Marine who served in Afghanistan. The military mail service is notoriously slow, and lawmakers have said that it could be almost two months after the election before ballots even arrive to be processed. Add to that the incident on October 19th, just two and a half weeks before the November 6th elections, when a transport...

    The Libyan-flagged vessel Al Entisar (The Victory) was on the port of Malta on Ausgust 27 2012. According to a Fox News investigation, shipping records confirmed that the Al Entisar docked at the Turkish port of Iskenderun on September 6. Iskanderun, or 'Alexandrette' on the map below is quite close to Idlib (where the Syrian revolution is raging now). [source] Fox News reported that, according to a report by the Times of London (September 14, 2012), the Al Entisar was carrying 400 tons of cargo when it dock in Iskanderun. Some of it was humanitarian, but also reportedly weapons,...
  • Obama Got Over 99% of Vote Where Inspectors were Removed; Turnout Somehow "30%" Above Gov't Numbers

    Across Philadelphia, GOP poll inspectors were forcibly (and illegally) removed from polling locations. Coincidentally (or not), Mr. Obama received "astronomical" numbers in those very same regions, including locations where he received "over 99%" of the vote. Ward 4, which also had a poll watcher dressed in Obama attire, went massively for Obama. Mr. Obama received 99.5% of the vote, defeating Mr. Romney 9,955 to 55. Is it odd that a county that dispelled GOP inspectors and had people openly campaigning for Obama ended with 99.5% for Obama and 9955 votes for him? It's up to you to decide. Another problem:...

    Is there a smaller, more unprincipled man in the national political debate than Chris Matthews of MSNBC? No, there is not. Bereft of decency and devoid of soul, what mattered most for Matthews is that his candidate — in this case, President Obama — somehow was boosted over the top. And if millions of his fellow citizens encounter appalling deprivations along the way — well, to Matthews, they’re just eggs to be broken for the Obama omelet. “I’m so glad we had that storm last week,” he said Tuesday. By which he meant Hurricane Sandy, which sowed death and destruction...

    If Republicans don’t go along with calls by President Obama for higher taxes and the nation goes off a “fiscal cliff,” then the GOP is to blame, says a Democratic congressman. <SNIP> Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday it’s actually Democrat policies of massive borrowing and spending that’s pushing the nation over the edge. “We are going over a financial cliff. Everybody in the Obama camp knows we are going over the financial cliff whether we raise taxes on the rich or not,” Limbaugh explained. “Raising taxes, confiscating the wealthy’s money would not save us. There isn’t the money....

    Two boys were assigned to shovel a stable full of horse manure. One of the boys was depressed. The other enthusiastically shoveled with glee. “Why are you happy?” asked the depressed lad. His happy associate responded, “With all of this excrement, there must be a pony in here.” As a Christian, I must trust and believe that God has a pony in allowing Obama to be reelected. Therefore, I will not join those who think we have lost the battle for America. Nor, do I subscribe to the nonsense that our Tea Party values are extreme. Our values are aligned...

    Obama supporters out celebrating his win on election night gathered on State Street Tuesday evening. I asked one man why he was celebrating Obama, and what that meant to him. He said, "It really means to me, no more Israel...Mitt Romney would go to war with Iran...Obama said f*** that sh*t. Kill those mother f***ers." Another said, "Palestine was there first, and Israel moved in in the 1940s and that's an unfair attack." A man of Jewish heritage accompanying him said, "I really do not think that us being with Israel is a good choice for us":(continued w/video)

    Initial jobless claims fell by 8,000 to 355,000 last week, although Hurricane Sandy is hampering efforts to actually collect data on jobless claims. We will have to wait three to four weeks to see the real impact. The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort index rose to its highest level since March, printing at -34.4. This may be the new normal since it indicates that 2/3rds of those surveyed are more pessimistic about their financial situation than are optimistic. In fact, 70 percent call it a bad time to spend money and 52 percent rate their personal finances negatively. Now that the election...

    In a city where President Obama received more than 85 percent of the votes, in some places he received almost every one. In 13 Philadelphia wards, Obama received 99 percent of the vote or more. Those wards, many with large African American populations, also swung heavily for Obama over John McCain in 2008 --snip-- Randall Miller, a history professor at St. Joseph's University, said politicians almost never get 99 percent of the votes anywhere except, perhaps, the towns where they were born.

    Again, a rejection of a RINO who has a Youtube video of him bashing a coal-fired power plant, all the way to articles of him flip-flopping on practically any subject you can think of running as a conservative (and then losing in the general election), isn't tantamount to conservatism being over. Let's face it - Romney had a long track record of being a RINO. There are plenty of past threads here detailing his RINO past as governor, as well as his flip-flops before, during and after the primaries. Yet the GOP-e thought that putting up someone whom they said...
