  • Obama Will Continue to Skip Intelligence Briefings Unless Jay-Z Raps Them!

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 9-15-2012 | MOTUS
    Here’s everything we know so far, and everything we’re likely to know for the foreseeable future as the State Department has announced a “no further questions” policy. Not that the MSM would ask any questions likely to embarrass Big Guy anyway. Lessons learned: 1. It’s wrong to politicize lethal attacks on our embassies if you’re running against Big Guy. 2. The best way not to politicize this is to keep calm and carry on as if nothing happened; i.e., continue to skip daily intelligence meetings and attend all previously scheduled fundraisers. 3. This “volatile situation” in the Mid-East is not...

    Someone had better roust Barack Obama from whatever fundraiser he is attending at the moment and let him know there is a crisis going on. The State Department is belatedly trying to secure our embassies and consulates around the world; in the meantime, rioters swarmed over the U.S. Embassy in Tunisia, tore down the American flag and replaced it with the black flag of al Qaeda.

    Drudge highlights part of the story that the LA Times, of course, does not. The president was updated throughout the evening, and notified late Tuesday that Stevens was unaccounted for. Obama learned Wednesday that Stevens was confirmed dead Wednesday morning, the official said. Man needs his rest. He's in Vegas right now. You can't do Vegas right if you're short of sleep. By the way, the media is all dutifully reporting the Obama line: That while he is jetting his ass off to Las Vegas, "it's not a day of politics as usual" (via Mark Knoller) and that his Political...
  • GOP pins Jimmy Carter on Barack Obama

    GOP pins Jimmy Carter on Barack Obama By: Glenn Thrush September 13, 2012 06:39 PM EDT When the going gets tough, Republicans get Jimmy Carter. Republicans and their surrogates spent much of Thursday pinning the Carter kick-me sign on Barack Obama, portraying the current commander-in-chief as a Carter-esque wimp unwilling to challenge Islamist militants raging outside U.S. consular buildings in Libya, Yemen and Cairo. Crazy-gluing the 44th president to the 39th has been a favorite Republican pastime for years. Carter is the brand name for fecklessness, indecision and weakness in the Oval Office. But up until now Mitt Romney, running...

    Ambassador Chris Stevens did not have a Marine detail in Benghazi, Libya. But White House Senior Advisor and Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett has a full Secret Service detail on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, according to Democratic pollster Pat Caddell.That’s the pathetic foreign policy of the Obama administration, says Caddell today in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News. “Jarrett seems to have a 24 hour, around the clock detail, with five or six agents full time,” Caddell explains. “The media has been completely uninterested. We don’t provide security for our ambassador in Libya, but she needs a full Secret Service security...

    [Obama and Clinton] again perpetuated the kind of intellectual dishonesty that cripples the U.S. response to radical Islamists. This concept of “senseless violence” is at the heart of the left’s refusal to confront the reality of radical Islamists. These are not acts of senseless violence. These are acts of war. Our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans...are combat casualties... ...the president is so committed to a leftist worldview that he cannot allow himself to face these facts. It is inconceivable that there just happened to be attacks in Egypt and Libya on Sept. 11. Yet...it had clearly not occurred...

    Israel media - Channel 2 - just reported that the US-commanded Multi-National Force Observors headquarters in the Sinai is under assault. Salafists laid seige to the building this afternoon and some 50 armed men stormed it. There is fighting going on in the building and there are dead inside. The MFO is the force that was established under the Israel-Egypt peace treaty. It is charged with guaranteeing the demilitarization of the Sinai. The MFO has two bases. I believe that the one under attack is in northern Sinai, built on an old Israeli Air Force base. The MFO has come...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 9/13/2012 | Caroline Glick
    ...With President Barack Obama’s inauguration, the imaginary world inhabited by the American foreign policy elite shifted again. Obama and his advisers agree that jihadist Islam is the predominant force in the Muslim world. But in their imaginary world, jihadist Islam is a good thing for America. Hence, Turkish Prime Minister Recip Erdogan is Obama’s closest confidante in the Middle East despite his transformation of Turkey from a pro- Western secular republic into a pro-Iranian Islamic republic in which secularists are jailed without trial for years on end. Hence Israel – the first target of jihadist Islam’s bid for global supremacy...

    In 1219 the Shah of the Islamic Khwarezmid Empire (present day Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan), Ala ad-Din Muhammad had the ambassadors of Genghis Khan killed.  This affront to diplomatic convention led to a devastating invasion and the total destruction of the Khwarezmid Empire.No-one would advocate the slash and burn/take no prisoner response of the Mongols in the thirteenth century.  However, to allow the first murder of an American ambassador since the Carter debacle to go unanswered is beyond the pale of poor leadership straying towards the realm of either complete ineptitude or dereliction of duty.President Obama reminds us at every...

    Breaking: Libyan Official Confirms Benghazi Assault a Pre-Planned Militant Attack Timed for 9-11 The film blamed for the riots: far less relevant to the attacks than the date on which they occurred. A senior security official says the attack that killed four Americans in Libya, including the U.S. ambassador, was an organized two-part operation by heavily armed militants that included a precisely timed raid on a supposedly secret safe house just as Libyan and U.S. security forces were arriving to rescue evacuated consulate staff. Wanis al-Sharef, eastern Libya’s deputy interior minister, said on Thursday the attacks were suspected to have...

    The bullet holes, smashed masonry and blood on the walls of the burned-out consulate on the southern outskirts of Benghazi are testament to the gun battle that raged through the building, claiming four lives including that of the US ambassador, Chris Stevens. As the owners of the damaged building and the accommodation block a mile down the road took the Guardian on a tour of the sites on Thursday, reports that the attack was the work of an isolated group seemed to be at odds with the physical evidence and what their staff had told them. "Better security would not...

    On 9/11, in response to an anti-Islam video that went viral on YouTube last week, Obama's Egyptian embassy released a statement deploring “the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.” This is beyond imagination: On 9/11, the anniversary of the attacks by radical Islamists on our nation, Islamic protestors compromised the U.S. embassy in Cairo, tearing the American flag to shreds to cries of “We are Usama!” and the Obama administration responds that our concern needs to be the “hurt feelings” of Muslims.

    WASHINGTON — The storming of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and the brutal murders of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, produced chaos this week in the so-called mainstream media. Instead of asking about how the heck this could happen in the aftermath of the Obama administration's Arab Spring euphoria, "reporters" started looking for scapegoats. The potentates of the press first focused their ire on something few of them even had seen — a puerile Internet video titled "Innocence of Muslims" — and then they turned their guns on Republican presidential...

If the scenes in Benghazi and Cairo seem eerily familiar, they should. They are similar to the days before our embassy in Tehran was seized in 1979 and held for 444 days, the rotten fruit of a policy that deposed a loyal friend in the name of human rights and instead brought the world a government of, by and for fanatics in Iran...

    US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens' fate was determined by Barack Obama. Obama set these events into motion when he decided Moammar Gaddfi had to go. Gaddafi's overthrow resulted in the disappearance of countless weapons, including RPG's and stingers. Hundreds of surface-to-air missiles have gone missing from Libyan arms depots since the fall of the Gaddafi regime, according to reports. Around 480 Russian SA-24 man-portable missiles, along with SA-7s and SA-9s, were said to be missing from a commercial storage unit in Tripoli after being moved from the headquarters of Khamis al-Gaddafi’s 32nd Brigade in the early stages of the...

Obama ran to the cameras and raced to tell the world that bin Laden was dead– just hours after his body bobbed beneath the waves in the wake of the USS Carl Vinson. He was anxious for the credit, not realizing that the credit would keep. He forgot about the military advantage of surprise. In his hurry, Obama forgot the two trash...

    The murder of the US ambassador and three consulate staff in the Libyan city of Benghazi should act as an urgent wake-up call to President Barack Obama to address America's security concerns properly, rather than trying to avoid them all the time. Ever since Mr Obama entered the White House he has tried to position himself as a politician who has no interest in getting involved in overseas conflicts. Having withdrawn American forces from Iraq and ordered the withdrawal of US combat troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2014, he has tried to appease his Democrat supporters by making...
