  • Sipsey Street Exclusive: "In at the Beginning" The State Department and the Gunwalker Scandal

    Sipsey Street Irregulars ^ | 06 October, 2011 | Mike Vanderboegh
    Nothing there about gunwalking is there? Nor is there any mention of Fast and Furious, which had yet to be launched as part of the surge described. But that is the point, say my sources. Policy is strategy enunciated. Tactics flow from strategy. The policy that got the Obama administration into trouble was the surge and the desire, in the words of Napolitano, for "more prosecution of actual arms dealers who are intentionally and knowingly putting arms into the hands of the smugglers." This fit with the Obamanoids preconceived notion -- promoted by the Brady Campaign, the Mexican Government and...

    American Spectator ^ | September 16, 2011 | R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.
    Americans of a political cast of mind have focused this week on New York where Bob Turner, a Republican, was wrestling with David Weprin, a Democrat, for the seat vacated by Rep. Anthony Weiner (pronounced just as you would expect) owing to the public's distaste for Weiner's sending pictures of his best friend to women whom he hardly knew. Incidentally the seat has been in Democratic control since 1923. It went 54 percent to 46 percent to Mr. Turner, despite 1,000 Democratic apparatchiks hauling voters to the polls.

    The Mideast Update ^ | September 4, 2011 | Staff
    In an effort to stave off a Palestinian bid at the United Nations, the United States is currently working with the Mideast Quartet—the US, the European Union, the UN and Russia—to develop a new substantial proposal for re-launching Middle East peace talks, according to a US newspaper. The New York Times report, which cites unnamed officials in the US and foreign diplomats, said that the plan would attempt to bridge differences and outline steps to resume Israel-Palestinian negotiations towards the creation of a Palestinian state. The New York Times said the

    The White House is giving free-speech opponents a megaphone. An unprecedented collaboration between the Obama administration and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC, formerly called the Organization of the Islamic Conference) to combat “Islamophobia” may soon result in the delegitimization of freedom of expression as a human right. The administration is taking the lead in an international effort to “implement” a U.N. resolution against religious “stereotyping,” specifically as applied to Islam. To be sure, it argues that the effort should not result in free-speech curbs. However, its partners in the collaboration, the 56 member states of the OIC, have no...

“Friendship is an arrangement by which we undertake to exchange small favors for big ones.” 
Charles de Montesquieu Arab spring? It is to laugh. The United States has spent millions fighting in Libya. Now when we ask them to hand over a murderous terrorist who killed 189 Americans on Pan Am flight 103, and was released in a disgusting oil-for-justice deal, they refuse. They claim they believe he should be able “to die in peace.” Are you kidding me? I am having a very hard time seeing a difference here between Gaddafi...

    (CNSNews.com) – In its Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) on the Keystone XL pipeline, which would create thousands of jobs and transport 830,000 barrels of oil a day from Canada to Oklahoma and Texas, a State Department official said its investigation found “no significant impact to most resources” along the path of the 1,700-mile project. But the State Department also said the pipeline could adversely affect the American Burying Beetle, an endangered species. Kerri-Ann Jones, assistant secretary of the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs at the State Department, said during an Aug. 26 conference call...

    PARIS (AP) — The U.S. State Department said Thursday that WikiLeaks did inform it of the impending release of hundreds of thousands of sensitive diplomatic cables but stressed that it was in no way cooperating with the anti-secrecy group whose actions it said threatened national security and the safety of confidential informants. Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the group had told the department it intended to continue to release classified documents over the strenuous objections of the United States.

    Infiltration of the federal government by members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood is worse than some have warned recently, says a former FBI special agent in Washington. The agent confirmed that at least three operatives of the Egypt-based Brotherhood – whose credo is "Jihad is our way and death in the cause of Allah is our dream" – have penetrated the Obama administration. The shocking charge was first leveled by Muslim reformer Tarek Fatah during a recent speech in Toronto. "Today in the White House, there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama's policy," he told the...

    Judicial Watch ^ | August 3, 2011
    While the nation’s Homeland Security secretary repeatedly assures Americans that the southern border is more secure than ever, a separate U.S. government agency has quietly issued an alarming report warning of “recent violent attacks and persistent security concerns” in the area. It’s like the Abbot and Costello version of government, where one agency can’t even coordinate with another to provide the country with a consistent story. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claims the Mexican border region is “as secure as it has ever been.” In fact, she embarked on a publicity tour to the area, using sound-bite opportunities to specifically...
  • Hillary Clinton Trying To Stop A House GOP Bill That Would Llimit Aid To Eygpt & Pakistan

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is urging a group of House Republicans to give up their push for a bill that would slash payments to the United Nations and limit aid to Egypt, Pakistan and the Palestinian Authority, among other groups. Clinton said in a letter Tuesday that she would urge President Barack Obama to veto the bill if it passes in both houses of Congress because the measure “would be debilitating to my efforts to carry out a considered foreign policy and diplomacy, and to use foreign assistance strategically to that end,” The Washington Post reported. The bill cleared...

    As the White House and Congress debate cuts in federal spending, millions of dollars are being funneled overseas to help build many Islamic mosques and structures. An Atlanta television news station, WSB, reported that "the State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas. This investment has received criticism as the United States makes an effort to slash nearly $4 trillion in government spending." The anchor noted that the U.S. Agency for International Development has granted copious funds for mosques in Cairo, Cyprus, Tajikistan and Mali. A USAID official spoke with FactCheck.org and confirmed that about $2.3 million...

    A House panel on Thursday endorsed a ban on giving federal money to international groups that perform abortions or provide abortion information, a fresh effort to reverse Obama administration policy. On the second day of a marathon session, the House Foreign Affairs Committee struggled to complete a sweeping foreign aid bill that would block U.S. assistance to Pakistan, Egypt and the Palestinian Authority unless the Obama administration reassures Congress that they are combatting terrorism. It also would slash U.S. contributions to international organizations and limit President Barack Obama's authority on overseas issues. Overall, the bill would cut $6.4 billion from...

    Secretary of State praises 'pioneering work' of congressman's terror-tied mother-in-law. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at a Saudi women's college, where she was introduced by a professor who has represented a Muslim charity known to have spawned terror groups, including one declared by the U.S. government to be an official al-Qaida front. That professor, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is also the mother of Clinton's chief of staff, Huma Abedin, and therefore mother-in-law of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y. Saleha Mahmood Abedin is an associate professor of sociology at Dar Al-Hekma College in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, which she helped to...

    It’s been a rocky first year of marriage for Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin, but the couple nonetheless celebrated their wedding anniversary together in Miami over the weekend. The former New York congressman, who recently resigned amid an embarrassing Internet scandal, and his wife, an aide for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, dined out with friends at Prime 112 steakhouse on Saturday night, according to the New York Post. After dinner, the two strolled together down Ocean Drive. Onlookers at the restaurant described the pair as “being very affectionate” and noted that Abedin “had a noticeable baby bump while wearing...

    Barack Obama is an illegal President, who has likely committed felonies in office and there is an active conspiracy to prevent the American people from learning the truth. There is evidence that Obama’s birth documents and Selective Service registrations are forgeries and that he is using a stolen Social Security number. Yet there are no investigations to ascertain the facts. There is only willful ignorance. Many of our political leaders and government officials are either actively or passively complicit in this crime against our Constitution and our country. Attorney Leo Donofrio has documented evidence that Justia.com, the main resource on...

    A few weeks ago, Malawi’s Ambassador to the United Nations said privately that the Obama administration had threatened to withhold $350 million in aid unless Malawi’s government struck down its laws on sodomy. Let’s take a look at tiny Malawi. According to the CIA World Fact Book, among Malawi’s roughly 16-million inhabitants, the life expectancy is a paltry 5I.7 years, which turns to be the 211th lowest life expectancy in the world. Malawi has the eleventh highest infant mortality rate in the world. And 44 percent of the population does not have safe sanitation, meaning they very well might be...

    A CIA/FBI agent was responsible for creating the first Al-Qaeda training manual from classified military sources; he covertly moved up through the ranks undetected until the Al-Qaeda spy, Egyptian born Ali Mohamed, was finally discovered. Though arrested in 1998, Mohamed's whereabouts and legal status remain unknown. Fort Hood Jihadist, Nidal Malik Hasan benefited from the same faulty screening. Jordanian born “reformed” Jihadist Humam Al-Balawi deceived some anxious CIA agents concerning the whereabouts of Ayman Al-Zawahiri. As he passed their guard he detonated a suicide belt, killing the agents. We were the first to translate the sinister plan of this Taliban...
