Egyptian President Morsi
flees presidential palace
as protests turn violent

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/4/2012 2:57:50 PM

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.

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.

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!

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.)

The Coming Obamacare Shock

Barack Obama declared victory this week as the deadline to avoid the penalty for the individual mandate to carry health insurance passed on Monday. “The Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” the President insisted as he announced that 7.1 million people had enrolled in private insurance through Obamacare. “The debate over repealing this law is over.” Consider that presidential wish casting in a midterm cycle in which Democrats will have to constantly defend their support for the unpopular law. As Jimmy Fallon pointed out later the same evening, the numbers were neither impressive nor reliable. “It’s amazing what you

Miley Cyrus is few people´s idea of a role model, what with her overtly sexual stage show, infatuation with marijuana and willingness to take off her clothes when the mood--and camera--strikes. One reality show star thinks the erstwhile Hannah Montana sets a good example for today´s young women all the same. Kendra Wilkinson, who parlayed her romance with Playboy founder Hugh Hefner into a reality show career, told E! News that more young women should take a page out of Cyrus´s playbook.

The Environmental Protection Agency is under fire for exposing children to pollution as part of an experiment at the University of Southern California. This information is coming to light from the website junkscience.com after an investigation from the EPA´s Office of the Inspector General stated in a recent report that the EPA’s pollution experiments on older people, done at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, were more harmful to the subjects than what the EPA presented. The IG also said that while the experiment´s subjects did consent to exposure, the “risks were not always consistently represented.” “Further, the EPA did not

Speaking at the University of Michigan University in Ann Arbor Wednesday, President Obama told students that Republicans don´t like them and don´t want to help them. Students greeted his remarks with applause and cheers. "I´m determined to do my part to lift wages, improve take-home pay any way I can," the president said in making his pitch for a higher minimum wage. "Here´s the problem," he continued. "You´ve got some Republicans saying we shouldn´t raise the minimum wage because -- (chuckles) -- they said this: Because, well, it just helps young people. Now, first of all, I think it´s pretty

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has escalated his war of words against the billionaire Koch brothers by publishing an anti-Koch hit piece on his Senate.gov page, despite official rules prohibiting the use of U.S. senators’ .gov websites for political purposes. The Senate.gov web page belonging to the Nevada Democrat currently features a list a list of “facts” about the Koch brothers, their limited government views and financial support for candidates that support these views. “The Kochs want to abolish Social Security,” reads the page. “The Kochs spent $400 million on misleading attack ads in the last election cycle.” The post

The Dartmouth students known as “Concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students” have followed through on their threat to take “physical action” if the College’s administrators don’t reply to their demands.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

"As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke.
