The 3:00 a.m. Call May Be Coming Soon

Posted by courage On June - 8 - 2010

Obama has apologized for American “arrogance;” from Cairo to Germany to  France to an Al Quire interview, he has continually attempted to shame the United States for standing against tyranny and supporting freedom.  Through his words the United States has been delegated to the status of a child who is hesitant and unsure of the world around her.  The world looks at the leader we elected and questions his motivation, vision and character.  Even long time allies have broken their silence on the policy position of Obama in dealing with the rising threat of Islamic fundamentalism.

From The European Union Times, April 9th, 2010:

A new report circulating in the Kremlin today authored by France’s Directorate-General for External Security (DGSE) and recently “obtained” by the FSB shockingly quotes French President Nicolas Sarkozy [photo top right with Obama] as stating that President Barack Obama is “a  dangerous[ly] aliéné”, which translates into his, Obama, being a “mad lunatic”, or in the American vernacular, “insane”.

According to this report, Sarkozy was “appalled” at Obama’s “vision” of what the World should be under his “guidance” and “amazed” at the American Presidents unwillingness to listen to either “reason” or “logic”.  Sarkozy’s meeting where these impressions of Obama were formed took place nearly a fortnight ago at the White House in Washington D.C., and upon his leaving he “scolded” Obama and the US for not listening closely enough to what the rest of the World has to say.

Apparently, as this report details, the animosity between Sarkozy and Obama arose out of how best the West can deal with the growing threat posed by rising Islamic fundamentalism. Both Sarkozy and his European neighbors had previously been supported in their efforts by the United States in forming an alliance to strengthen the integration of Muslim peoples into their societies, and has including France and Belgium moving to ban the wearing of burqa’s.

Time-lines have been set by the administration for Iran to stop their race to acquire nuclear weapons, at each step the reset button has been hit by the administration giving Iran additional time to achieve their desire to join the nuclear arms club.  The recent United Nations resolution instituing an embargo against Iran this administration was forced to water down the sanctions by China and Russia to where the sanctions are meaningless.  This after 16 months of the world being “enlightened” to the Utopian vision of  a pResident, which is based in fantasy and theory, not the hard reality of insane dictators.

The United Nations countries of Brazil and Turkey voted against sanctions, previously they have voted in favor of efforts used to prevent Iran from reaching nuclear nation status, but thins are changing under this pResident.  Iranian leader Ack-maud-insane-job recently met with the President of Turkey, apparently this meeting has forged new alliances of which the US is not in the mix.

While some may believe that the United States should withdrawal from the global world and become more isolationist, the truth is that allowing countries with nut-job leader’s is a threat to the world.  Make no mistake Israel is not the only country which will be targeted by Iranian strikes, they hate us because of our freedom.  Those that do not believe this fact need to start reading the Koran and pay closer attention to the insidious methods of genocide which filter through Islamic faith.  Look to Europe  and as they welcomed those of Islamic faith to their bosoms, they have come to realize how the faith is an ideology which subverts their laws and advocates Sharia in their society.

Oh yes the 3:00 a.m. call made famous by the Clinton ad during the primary will come true, the catalysis for the call will be a direct result of Obama’s inability to lead and his lack of reality based ideology.  He has lead us down a yellow brick road and the monkeys will be flying from the trees, lets hope he does not vote “present.”

During the recent Jewish Heritage Celebration at the White House…

One has to wonder IF during a celebration of Black History month at the White House Thomas made a statement about returning all Black citizens to Africa, how that would be interpreted by the liberal/progressive/Left ?  In all likelihood we will never know, since overt racism like that would be quickly condemned by the Left and rightfully so.

From ABC News:

Former Clinton special counsel and spokesman Lanny J. Davis issued a statement Sunday calling on the White House to suspend Thomas’ privileges in the White House press room, and for Hearst to consider a similar suspension of her position as a nationally syndicated columnist.

“Of course Helen has the right as a private citizen under the First Amendment to speak her mind, even as an anti-Jewish bigot — but not as a member, much less privileged member with a reserved seat, in the WH press corps,” Davis wrote.

Indeed as an American citizen Thomas does have the right to speak any misinformed opinion she may hold, yet when the line of private citizen crosses over and affords her the platform of a “privileged” news correspondence with access to spew her ill-informed opinions something has to give.

Being a part of the White House press corps allows Thomas a position of power in the media.  Her skewed beliefs can be presented as fact and questions can be slanted toward increased anti-semantic intolerance, with little to no moderation.  I have teetered between having her White House press pass revoked, in essence disallowing her a platform to speak, to removing her from the esteemed “Dean” of the corps and relegating her to a backroom seat.  On one hand moments like this allow for discussion of the insidious nature of racism, yet how often do we as society do we allow those who have power to continually perpetuate ignorance?

So will the left call Helen Thomas out for her comments?  Or will them remain mute, condoning the ignorance through their silence?

In adding some depth to this question, take a look at Helen Thomas during a White House press conference as she questions Gibbs immediately after the Israeli incident with the Flotilla.  Prior to knowing   facts surrounding the incident Thomas castigates  the administration for not condemning Israel.

Senator Harry Reid is a Buffoon

Posted by courage On June - 3 - 2010

From the Washington Times:

During a press conference last Friday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, told reporters about a bipartisan amicus brief to the Supreme Court supporting the right of military families to bury the remains of their loved ones without being protested. I asked Mr. Reid if the same right to privacy should extend to private citizens whose homes are protested by public unions. Mr. Reid dodged the issue saying, “I don’t know anything about lawns and Bank of America executives.”

Of course, why would Reid know anything about the SEIU workers who stormed the home of a Bank of America lawyer and protested on his front lawn?  This act of terrorism by SEIU thugs was widely reported on by the media when it happened.

Are these congresscritters that disconnected from what is happening in this country or is his feigned ignorance because SEUI is intimately tied to the Democratic party and could be considered the enforcement arm of the party?

In any case.. Senator Reid, you are a buffoon!

From Jack Tapper ABC News:

Andrew Romanoff, the former speaker of the Colorado house of representatives, issued a statement Wednesday evening claiming that the White House raised the possibility that he might be offered an administration job if he opted to not challenge incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo.

Romanoff also released what he said was an e-mail from White House deputy chief of staff Jim Messina outlining three possible jobs — deputy assistant administrator for Latin America and Caribbean for the U.S. Agency for International Development; director of the Office of Democracy and Governance at USAID; and director of the U.S. Trade and Development Agency – he could have if he didn’t run.

Romanoff did not accept any of the offers, and currently is challenging Bennet, who has the endorsement of President Obama.

The White House did not comment. The statement comes as the White House attempts to distance itself from the controversy stemming from attempts – also unsuccessful – to convince Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., to not challenge Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., in the Pennsylvania primary. Sestak ultimately defeated Specter.

What you hadn’t heard about this quid pro quo deal to drop out of the Senate race in exchange for a White House job offer?  Funny this was originally reported on back in September 2009 by the Denver Post.

There appears to be a new era of “transparency” in the White House, actually a re-definition of standard English.  Transparency now means this administration is allowed to display through words one sentiment in the public arena and do something quiet different behind the scenes.  There are now two cases by the White House which on appearance violate federal law Romanoff and Sestak.  ahe recent statement release from the White House on the Sestek offer opens more questions for additional inquiry then it answered. IF and again this is a big IF, there was no shady dealings involved in these circumstances then why did the White House wait months to answer questions regarding the facts surrounding the job offer with Sestak?

Time and again parts of the lamestream media are commenting on how situations as these are standard operating procedures in politics, if true and I have no reason to doubt them the public should be outraged and demand a full independent investigation.  We have a pResident who championed how he would do things different if elected pResident, little did we know that he was talking about bringing overt partisanship, backroom deals and the corruption which plagues Chicago to Washington.

Islamic Terrorists: Manipulating the Truth

Posted by courage On June - 1 - 2010

The International community was quick yesterday to condemn Israel  for attacking a “Peace envoy” headed to Gaza, mind you this was prior to facts being known.  The United Nations is calling for an emergency session on the incident and at the same time condemning Israel for the set-up by terrorists.

Of the numerous reports of the incident, Melanie Phillips’ article dissecting the situation is perhaps the best.  Take time to view the videos contained in the body of the article, they allow context in understanding.

Melanie Phillips from The Spectator U.K. :

As the international community rushes to condemn Israel for the violence on board one of the ships in the Gaza flotilla, which left a reported 10 people dead and dozens injured, it is now obvious that the real purpose of this ‘armada of hate’ was not merely the further delegitimisation of Israel but something far worse.

Gaza’s markets are full of produce, thousands of tons of supplies are travelling into Gaza every week through the Israeli-controlled border crossings, and there is no starvation or humanitarian crisis. It was always obvious that the flotilla was not the humanitarian exercise it was said to be. Here is footage of the IDF offering to dock the Marmara — the main flotilla ship — at Ashdod and transfer its supplies and being told ‘Negative, negative, our destination is Gaza’.

And now we can see that the real purpose of this invasion — backed by the Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), a radical Islamic organization outlawed by Israel in 2008 for allegedly serving as a major component in Hamas’s global fund-raising machine — was to incite a violent uprising in the Middle East and across the Islamic world. As I write, reports are coming in of Arab rioting in Jerusalem.

The notion – uncritically swallowed by the lazy, ignorant and bigoted BBC and other western media – that the flotilla organisers are ‘peace activists’ is simply ludicrous. This research by the Danish Institute for International Studies details the part played by the IHH in Islamist terror in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Chechnya. According to the French magistrate Jean-Louis Bruguiere testifying at the Seattle trial of would-be al Qaeda Millenium bomber Ahmed Ressamin, the IHH had played ‘[a]n important role’ in the al Qaeda Millenium bomb plot targeting Los Angeles airport. It was also involved in weapons trafficking, and played in addition a key role in galvanizing anti-Western sentiment among Turkish Muslims in the lead-up to the 2003 war in Iraq. ‘Peace activists’ these people most certainly are not.

And this flotilla was but the latest jihadi attack, deploying the Islamists’ signature strategy of violence and media manipulation. Here from MEMRI (via Just Journalism) is a clip showing the hysteria against Israel being whipped up on board before the ships set sail, with the chanting of intifada songs about ‘Khaybar’ – the iconic slaughter of Jews by Muslims in the 7th century which is used as a rallying cry to kill the Jews today — and threats of ‘martyrdom’. This was not merely a propaganda stunt, but a terrorist attack.
