Egyptian President Morsi
flees presidential palace
as protests turn violent

CAIRO – Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi fled the presidential palace Tuesday as violence erupted between police and at least 100,000 protesters gathered in Cairo. In a brief outburst, police fired tear gas to stop protesters approaching the palace in the capital´s Heliopolis district. Morsi was in the palace conducting business as usual while the protesters gathered outside. But he left for home through a back door when the crowds "grew bigger," according to a presidential official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Comments:
That Arab Spring the leftists are so proud of sure is working out well. s/o Sadly for us 0bama is the last guy you want in office while the whole Middle East is blowing up.

The Egyptian people know another dictator when they see one.

Sadly I must call it the last spring of optimism. Of course the muslim brotherhood will put this down with great force, showing their true faces. And of course no one in the west will do anything, not even weakly cheering from the sidelines. Obama and friends have already put their money on Morsi in their efforts to continue the destabilization of the middle east and eventually attempt the destruction of isreal. That was the intentions of Obama and friends from the begining.

Actually, #3, there is a chance for a more optimistic outcome - the muslim brotherhood may not be quite strong enough to beat down the protests, and instead Egypt may destroy itself completely in a grand and destructive civil war.

well, that´s what passes for optimism in the middle east.

What kind of image would it make if Obama went to his inauguration and was kept from returning to the White House by several hundred thousand that refused to let him return.

Flip a coin about who will win in Egypt. And laugh as Hillary explains it all to us.

Morsi left for home?

No matter. Apparently in Egypt the Presidential Palace is not the President´s residence.

They key, as usual, is how far the police and army will go to suppress dissent. I doubt the MB can win in the streets otherwise.

The problem with any of these ME countries is that the educated class in the cities is secular and wants democracy. The uneducated in the hinterlands are ignorant and vote for sharia. The uneducated outnumber the educated. Morsi and the Brotherhood is the result. The big demonstration of Morsi supporters was made up of people bussed into Cairo from the rural areas.

One man, one vote, one time. Egypt is lost.

Hmmm, Dictators seem to have a hard time staying alive in that part of the world...Morsi obviously knows that.

Maybe it is time for him to do what he said not what he meant...let this be a lesson to other world leaders. The citizens are tired of their Dictator crap and it soon will become time for payback!

Why should Morsi act like such a wuss and run away like a little girl? He´s the one that talked big. Those protestors are his Islamist supporters. Everyone there wants Sharia law and to be ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood. Where is he problem?

Just saw Howitzer Explosion Guy ("Party on, Wayne!") get a live report from a cnn guy on the ground in Cairo. He seemed to be relieved upon hearing that the dictator was never in any danger and that his faction now had the momentum and was gaining the upper hand in the demonstration. That would make sense because, like the Won, the new dictator in Egypt is the media´s guy.

#3 and #4: I believe that the outcome may be much different. The only institution that historically has been able to govern since Nasser has been the military.

I expect a young officer to rise to power, quell the protests from the left and the Ikhwan (muslim brotherhood) and take control. It may be bloody, but they got the guns.

(In the olden days the Soviets would have swept in to take control of the power void. I don´t think Putin has that play in mind now, but we´ll see.)

Remember just a month or so ago Barry tried
to send his friend Morsi and the Muslim brotherhod a half-billion dollars of U.S. taxpayer money. Only the adults in the Republican House stopped that money from being sent. We´ve got a crazy man in the White House.

David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll. "If Eric Cantor´s campaign or any of his affiliates has hired Shaun Kenney’s consulting firm, any pretense of fairness in the upcoming Seventh District Congressional Race is diminished," Brat wrote in a letter to Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPVA).

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Bloomberg Plans a $50 Million

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
