Americans among 20
hostages seized in Algeria

Washington Post, by Joby Warrick and Ernesto Londoño

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/17/2013 12:16:59 AM

Islamist militants seized at least 20 hostages, including as many as seven Americans, at an Algerian natural gas complex Wednesday in a brazen attack linked by the assailants to France’s military intervention in neighboring Mali. At least one foreign worker was reported killed in the early morning assault on the vast In Amenas gas field near Algeria’s eastern border with Libya. The attack, attributed to a unit of al-Qaeda’s offshoot in North Africa, raised concerns about a broadening of Mali’s civil war five days after French forces joined the country’s fight against Islamist insurgents.

watched the movie Delta Force tonight. It gave me a feeling of when I was really proud of how we would rescue the hostages.

Today with this bimbo in the White House.....nothing. Kiss the hostages good-by.

England still has SAS #1. And not all Frenchmen wave white flags. The French Resistance during WWII did amazing things helping the allies escape through France. Let´s not paint them with that awful wide brush. And whether Zippy is able to make any decisions or not, the US Special Forces must be anxious to go. We can use that brush for the current White House occupants.

The Islamo leader was also in Benghazi... and fully expects Obama to respond the same, as in Do Nothing. Obama can´t respond. Taqiyya Tactics allow him to target & kill only rogue arabs, not members of The Muslim Brotherhood invasion team!

France may have failed at their Somalian rescue, due to US giving the Mo Bro´s a heads up...

Can´t have a hostage rescued the week before Obama sends Hillary to Somalia, to bestow Legitimate Government Status on the Arab Spring invading Islamist Muslim Bro´s now in power.... Just like Egypt, Tunisia & Libya!

France... Please keep your rescue tactics in the Sahara close to the vest. May God protect you.

The media will simply pass this off as bad luck for Obama who can´ tbe expected to be perfect everywhere. What he´s accomplishing at home far outweighs some foreign mishaps.

I mean what could be better than going uninsured and then getting same day coverage after you get a brain tumor.If the republicans weren´t so outdated,they could come up with this form of government benevolence.

What could be better than using you house for an ATM and then after the money is blown,the banks eat your underwater value.It´s a mystery to me why people can´t get 2 years behind on their car payment and still keep their cars. Afterall,they need a way to work.

What could be better than getting an extra 6 or 7 grand every time you re-up a student loan and you´re really not expected to pay it back. Rich people and greedy corporations should pay for free college.We need more people with degrees in African studies.

Perhaps Morsi will use his influence and broker a trade of these hostages with O for the Blind Sheik in the course of his "state visit" to O-land, the place formerly known as the USA.

msm will not do it so we all have to: the proximate cause of the this mali rebellion is the intervention in libya by obama. Obama broke the libyan policy that had been in place since Nixon and that finally, finally had started to work under W. Obama smashed it to hell and the Khadafy forces fled to Mali where they have started all this. It´s on him.

Ironic -- isn´t it????

Last time a social/libbies was in the White House -- WE had hostages....

So let´s see if the bamboozler calls carter to ask his advice.

The president´s weakness in foreign affairs will put these people in jeopardy. Best case scenario -- a private black/ops team be hired by their families to get them out.... OR perhaps Bill O´Reilly can work some magic like he did with the Marine illegally held in Mexico. The goooooberment couldn´t get him out -- BUT O´Reilly did....

Hey Bill -- what do you say?

I pray for these hostages and hope they return home unharmed. I can´t help but wonder if shortly after September 11, had we gone into Afghanistan and destroyed their country and broken their will that the terrorists would be rethinking the whole jihad thing. We had the ability but not the will. Now we are being pecked to death by these barbarians. The only way to stomp out this cancer is with overwhelming force and the will to do it. The world knows Obama is weak and that he will never do what needs to be done. The bad guys use to fear us, now they don´t. Our people are sitting ducks who can´t rely on our government to try and rescue them.

Were a Republican in the White House, it would be his or her fault that Americans were taken hostage. The media will give Obama and Mrs. Clinton a pass.

Actually, I think Obama is cover for Mrs. Clinton. If Obama weren´t her boss, she´d take more heat for foreign policy failures. The media will give cover for a lazy black man who has accomplished nothing on his own in life, but not a white woman.

Folks . . . Obama is LAZY and his Marxist views just support his laziness as it is EVERYONE ELSE´S fault that black folks are poor in his way of thinking. There´s no thought to personal responsibility or the Democrat policies that keep black folks in chains.

My prayers go out to all the families of all involved in this horrible situation.

Obozo and Hitlery are no doubt pouring over Youtube videos searching for 1 made by an American to blame this situation on. Can´t possibly be al qaeda responsible because he dismantled them and had them running scared - even though they claim responsibility on a video.

I am quite sure the Americans who escaped saw the blood on the wall in Benghazi and knew they were on their own.

How long before Obozo speaks about this? No dead children involved to push gun control, so I´m sure there is no rush - maybe after tee time?!

I think the Hil wound was from a "LifeStyle Lift as it is called on TV. They picture these folks, men and women, looking like deflated foot-balls in the before and pretty great in the after. How it works is that the muscles attach in the area behind the ear. The surgeon snags it with a hook and pulls back.Presto! tight-face.

These folks are ´on their own´. WIth the incompetent people in the current administration running things ´into the ground´ no one is safe abroad.

I highly suggest folks like those taken hostage become very heavily armed for self protection and have many escape/evade options at their ready.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it.

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
