Scandal: The filmmaker blamed for the terrorist attack on our Libyan consulate and the murder of our ambassador goes to jail for an "unrelated" matter. If you believe that, you also believe al-Qaida is on its heels. If the Obama administration had heeded warnings from Ambassador Chris Stevens that, after two previous incidents, the consulate in Benghazi was surrounded by terrorist training camps and couldn´t withstand an organized attack, Mark Basseley Youssef might still be a free man today. If requests for enhanced security had not been repeatedly denied, or if
Just curious, but how does this offense compare to the illegal immigration status of an uncle and an aunt of the president. Surely we aren´t using different standards for different classes of people. Wasn´t there some silly attitude that we are a nation of laws and not of men?
There is a reason you have to search the internet to see a picture of this Mark Basseley Youssef (aka Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, aka Sam Bacile). The media would very much prefer you imagine him as a 50 year old southern white supremacist or perhaps a Jew, rather than an Egyptian identity theft criminal.
Mark Basseley Yousse is only today´s Emmanuel Goldstein for the daily two minute hate session. Every one has committed a felony or two by now if you dig deeply enough so there is more than enough reason for any enemy of Barack to go to prison if he needs a scapegoat to cover his bony rump. And there are more than enough Good Germans, er, Americans who are willing to do this kind of railroading. I bet there were parties last night or tonight to celebrate a job well done. Have a beer and mock us, folks. You just got four more years of the America you voted for.
The sentence is a warning shot across the bow of anyone daring to exercise their first amendment rights when said rights go against the policies of this Administration.
It should be a warning to talk radio and ANY conservative outlet for news and commentary. This videographer did nothing wrong but tyranny is this Administration´s best tool -- the threat of jail time for speaking your mind should send chills down the spines of any conservative website, radio talk show host, TV show, newsletteer, blog or any other source that/who says anything this Dictator doesn´t like.
President Jarrett will see to it that there will be an Enemies List as long as your arm and those individuals will be targeted. It has already begun; look at the Democrats calling for Rush Limbaugh to be shut down. They´ve got the truth and we can´t have that, can we?
Lets face it, Obama got elected based on perception. A perception within a people that have been conditioned by marketing and the media under direction of corporate greed. Logic, reasoning and evidence are so not with it, so archaic, so narrow minded, so bigoted and besides, it requires thought and effort. American´s slothful lives have made us overweight physically and brain dead mentally. The typical American today can´t make a choice or decision without the media telling them what to buy, what to think and what to do; so voting has become nothing more than an exercise in obedience to their masters. Americans don´t know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil or a lie from the truth. They turn on the tube and let all the subtle suggestions of morality and values permeate their empty brains until they are nothing more than walking zombies unable to take care of themselves, dead mentally. They are illiterate, can´t navigate through life, can´t add two numbers together, can´t communicate without a smart phone and would starve to death if there wasn´t a safety net from a vote seeking politician there to save them. Americans have redefined freedom and liberty to their perverted limits until they believe they can do whatever they want without consequences and with responsibility, because corporate greed has enabled them to do so; and the price has been the destruction of America from within.
Americans have been conditioned and are controlled by the media which is controlled by corporate greed and Obama is their Front Man.
#17 - Wait-a-hold-it... Real Americans don´t want free stuff. It is all the dumbed-down, barely aware, dope-smoking, self-absorbed, media-influenced, celebrity-obsessed, busted-ass, Kool-Aid drinking, uninformed, government-dependent zombies with hordes of couch-potato kids going to school for free breakfast, lunch, dinner and baby-sitting (who still can´t read, write or count) who want the free stuff or they´ll burn the MF place down. Real Americans work for their "stuff"!
The guy in prison is a career criminal. If he were out he´d be stealing more money through identity theft. He may be a patsy, but he was a convicted felon before the Benghazi terror incident, and he did violate his parole.
The videographer may well be the first political prisoner of Zippy’s second term, but I’m skeptical he’s the innocent victim of happenstance that’s being assumed.
We know that the Muslim Brotherhood have been “visiting” the White House throughout the first term, and that Obama supported and facilitated the “Arab Spring” in both Egypt and Libya while appearing nonplussed at the MB government takeovers. We also know that Al Queda (wholly owned subsidiary of the MB) planned and orchestrated the riot and takeover of the Cairo Embassy to coincide with the military attack on the “diplomatic mission” in Benghazi. A trigger incident was needed that provided an “offense” for which Obama could apologize and not have to publicly identify the true nature of the “incident”, i.e.; a terrorist attack against U.S. soil on the 11th anniversary of 9-11-01. These people would not wait for some opportune “anti-muslim” video or surf the internet hoping to find one. I submit they manufactured one.
IIRC the storyline described Youssef as an Egyptian immigrant with U.S. citizenship and several fraud convictions. He was also supposed to be a Coptic devout enough to defend his faith by making a video against Islam at the request a wealthy Christian businessman in Egypt. As a cover story this places the blame specifically on Christians and Free Speech, presenting a public focal point that allows persecution of Christians and limits on the 1st Amendment.
Isn’t it odd that a wealthy Christian businessman in Egypt would fund such a project in the middle political upheaval and not be taking care of his family and business assets? I think the “videographer” is a MB agent. Did anyone acknowledge this man? Not is priest? Not fellow parishioners? We do know he is a criminal that emigrated from Egypt. That could make him an opportune operative willing to take the public fall. He was swept from the public within 48 hours of the Benghazi attack being announced, held incommunicado until the election, now convicted and sentenced in pubic. However, I don’t think he’s off to prison. I think he’s now part of the islam witness protection program. Removing tin foil hat.
Oh dear. I wonder where the first Konzentrationslager will be established. Maybe there are a few barbed wire enclosures remaining out west, relics of Roosevelt´s adventure in Japanese-American population control.
The Konzntrationlager is the prison that Obama bought in Sept ´12 in Illinois. Itis brand new, nver been occupied, and he bought it with some Presidential fund I never had heard that our Presidnets had access to. Typically spending bills come fromt he HOuse. But Obama just did and Executive Order on it. Just horrible.
Political Correctness: Its force structure decimated by sequestration and budget cuts, the Marine Corps considers exchanging its proud and honored look for hats similar to the gendarmes who direct traffic in Paris. If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June. But those who remain will at least be fashion-conscious if a proposal for changes in their dress headgear goes forward. Men and women in the Marines
Junk Science: Al Gore, patron saint of climate fraud, argues with Australia´s prime minister that its brushfires are not caused by warming and that the record shows the koala bear, like the polar bear, is quite safe. They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle. And they occurred in February 1851 during one of the coldest years on record. Bushfires have been part of Australian life for centuries
Energy: The Golden State´s governor has signed legislation that regulates but does not ban the technology that has sparked an energy boom nationwide — and which may yet restore the state to solvency. If any state were to ban hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, the process that releases oil and natural gas trapped in porous shale formations, one would think it would be California. Gov. Jerry Brown, who leads the government in a state that hosted Solyndra and embraces endangered bird-chopping wind turbines,
Scandal: A deadly battle involving grenades between a drug cartel and Mexican police has added to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects that U.S. officials watched but did not stop. The same Obama administration officials responsible for letting thousands of weapons walk into Mexico and right into the hands of drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious also passed on several opportunities to arrest and prosecute an arms smuggler who was busy supplying the cartels with hand grenades. This according to a report by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, the one reporter
Corruption: The crash-prone government health-care site asks applicants if they want to register to vote as they try to sign up for ObamaCare. By sheer coincidence, a plurality of the uninsured are likely Democratic voters. Call it Motor Voter on steroids — the piggybacking of voter registration to an otherwise unrelated government function. Those trying to navigate Healthcare.gov, a website that looks and functions as if designed by the department of motor vehicles, are being asked if they want to register to vote just in time for crucial 2014 midterm elections
Regulation: From lost jobs to fewer hours to premium hikes that would make a loan shark drool, Barack Obama´s home state is a case study in why the first rule in health care reform, as in medicine, should be to do no harm. The president and his cohorts in the media have long accused Republicans of being out of touch with ordinary people. Remember the concocted story about President Bush the elder being so out of touch he was unfamiliar with supermarket bar-code scanners? But it´s President Obama who´s out of touch with ordinary people
Health Care: In a stunning admission, our Health and Human Services secretary admits ObamaCare is part of the fundamental transformation of America away from a free market in anything to a nanny state on steroids. Maybe Kathleen Sebelius was being sarcastic, or maybe she thought it might be a good way to reach the "young invincibles" who feel they had better things to do with their money than enroll in ObamaCare. But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart´s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare´s train wreck of a rollout.
The Shutdown: Federal closure threatens to bar priests not on active duty from conducting services on military installations or from ministering on base, and they risk being arrested if they attempt to do so. The latest Obama shutdown shame is the news that, until it´s over, none of the families of those killed in Afghanistan can expect to receive the $100,000 death gratuity promised to reach them within 24 to 36 hours. Grieving families also cannot expect the military to cover all the usual costs of family travel to meet their loved ones at Dover Air Force Base where they return
Global Warming: Temperatures have flat-lined for 15 years, the Arctic and Antarctic are gaining record amounts of ice, most computer models have been wrong, yet the networks are buying into the alarmists´ narrative. Earth might not have a fever but the media do, judging by their hyperventilating about the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s quite fraudulent report (Fifth Assessment Report or 5AR) released Sept. 27. One network — CBS— even turned a blind eye to the truth and claimed that temperatures "could have risen by more than 200 degrees." This fiction came from CBS´ Ben Tracy
A confirmed atheist when he was 15, C.S. Lewis came around to believing in God when he was 31. "I knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England," he wrote in his autobiography, "Surprised by Joy." Soon he embraced Christianity. A lecturer at English universities, Lewis became a superstar author by explaining his faith and weaving it creatively into novels. Books including "Mere Christianity," "The Screwtape Letters," "That Hideous Strength" and the series "The Chronicles of Narnia" have sold a total of 200 million copies, but he wasn´t always popular.
Energy Revolution: America´s natural gas boom threatens Russia´s economic strategy, an expert says, leaving it with few alternatives to rescue its economy while threatening to shatter its energy stranglehold on Europe. Russia´s abundance of energy resources has long allowed it to use energy both as a foreign policy weapon and as the bedrock of the Russian economy. Whenever energy prices rose, Russia benefited and its neighbors often felt the restraining leash of dependence on Russian energy, particularly natural gas. Government-controlled energy giant Gazprom was in such a strong position it could demand decade-long contracts
Health Reform: Those icons of voter fraud have been tasked and paid to guide an unwilling public through the ObamaCare enrollment process — while getting access to confidential information on thousands of people seeking health insurance. Somehow it does not surprise us that among the conductors on the train wreck known as ObamaCare will be leftist agitators from President Obama´s beloved Acorn, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. They´ll get up to $48 an hour as "navigators" to lead us through the dead-end ObamaCare maze. As Mathew Vadum reports on the American Spectator blog
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
If you go down on the ice today you´re sure of a big surprise - a rare glimpse of 20 polar bears gorging on a bloody midnight feast. These photographs show a rare cluster of males, females and cubs all dining out on the remains of a whale carcass. They spent a night and a day stripping every last morsel from the mammoth sea creature. Usually Polar bears are solitary and would never tolerate being so close to each other. But with food in plentiful supply and bellies dragging on the floor they seem too lethargic to fight.Wildlife photographer Michal
The Sexiest Man Alive is being enlisted to spice up Obamacare. Pop singer Adam Levine, who won the designation from People magazine last month, is among the celebrities who’ll be promoting enrollment in online health insurance exchanges as part of a social media campaign kicking off tomorrow. With enrollment totals behind administration projections after the botched start-up of the federal exchange, 17 state exchanges joined by an advocacy group are drawing on Obama administration allies in entertainment and sports to promote sign-ups, using social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Reprising a tactic President Barack Obama successfully employed in his 2012 re-election, organizers
