During the third debate of the 2012 presidential campaign, Mitt Romney talked about Mali and the danger al-Qaeda represented there. The Obamamedia laughed and derided Romney, carrying Barack Obama’s water and continued advancing the fraud that Obama had decimated al-Qaeda, even though al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists had taken over an American consulate and killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya just weeks prior. Surprise!!!! Al-Qaeda in Mali is a serious enough threat that the French, The French!, have invaded Mali to fight them there. It looks like Romney was indeed
Comments: This is not an attempt to rehash our last election. It is a wake-up call to those who think Al Qaeda is dead [like 0bama claims] and that we are through fighting them when moving troops out of Middle East. No mention of Iran who we claim, are attacking our major banking computer websites recently. Because Mali overthrown in a coup, we must wait for "elected" government to ask for help [Ha, ha]. Al Qaeda wants an Islamic state that strictly follows Sharia law. Algeria where current fighting in oil-fields may be next.
We know that Romney raised this issue in October and was denounced as the liar of the year by the palace media. There are more Malis in the waiting and we are not going to hear about them until concealment is unavoidable. Thats what we voted for.
Obama, you are a Mikey Mouse, Milquetoast, sissy-faced, rose water squirting liberal. Get off your skinny backside and act like The President of the United States (for once in your potato-string backbone life) and deal with this. American citizens and Ambassadors are being slaughtered in North Africa.
The perception that Obama is simply naive or weak in dealing with Islamists is a continuing misconception, and a dangerous one, because it doesn´t address the true hazard...this guy is consciously and cleverly facilitating the creation of the worldwide caliphate. It´s inescapable if you simply track his behavior across the globe.
Uprisings that threaten an existing Islamist state (Iran, for example) are deliberately ignored. Uprisings that depose a West-friendly or neutral government and replace it with an Islamist one are openly supported and publicly encouraged (Egypt, Libya, etc.).
When the heck is Congress going to step up and do its duty? This guy must be stopped.
1. Impeach the corrupt enemedia, the bastid liars! 2.Impeach that Kenyan mulatto foreign exchange student and his demented VP liar! 3. Send Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein, Reid, Bloomberg, Cuomo, Hagel, Kerry, Clinton, Christie, Schumer, Weiner, and all other lefty liars straight to hell! 4. Place Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio in the White House and give them advisors like Giuliani, Gingrich, Ryan, Bolton, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Rush Limbaugh! 5. Restore all cuts to the military. Reduce the allocations to welfare recipients and give it instead to the troops! 6. Fire every public school employee and begin a re-hire marathon based on actual "well-qualified applicants" with no affirmative action or race criteria...just the smartest, and especially look for American veterans who want to teach and counsel students in order to make them intelligent! No more baby-sitting these dumbasses by chair-warming underachievers!
I hate to be picky, but "decimated" means decreased by a tenth (that is 90% still remain). It is quite possible that al-Qaeda has been decimated. However, a huge problem remains...wonder how long we wait until we get serious about it.
Mitt was right. Our pretend professor thinks he´s destroyed terrorism. Our noble peas prize winner thinks he and his alchemists at the Federal Reserve can create money out of thin air. Our great and industrious autobiographer thinks he can use children to take away our rights under the Constitution. Our Obamaham Lincoln has encouraged half of the American populace to "get in their faces". Say what you will about Mitt Romney, and believe me we´ve heard it all, but this is a decent man and he had a chance to turn the ship around.
This all tracks back to Egypt and Libya. Now those weapons are all over N Africa and Syria. And it isn´t just this president, but also morons like McCain and Lindsay Graham who are accomplices in it with him. Remember McCain on the floor of the Senate attacking Michelle Bachmanna and she was right about muslim influence at the state department. Hagel will fit in just fine along with Brenan. Now where are the Republicans who will back Bachmann and raise a fuss about any of this?
right on #12 the media reports the libs agenda media has ruined a few good men/women......clarence thomas.....herman cain......sarah palin..michelle bachmann....and partly W...but W remained calm in the face of the left.....and ignored them.......we´re now finding out mitt was right on ALOT OF WHAT HE SAID.......oh yeah
Romney made his statements shortly after he started getting intelligence briefings. So the Obamatons know. It shows that this is not an intelligence problem, it´s a political problem. Stemming from the White House.
Yep. And remember how the esteemed media "fact checkers" called one of Romney´s claims the
"LIE OF THE YEAR"
and now, shazaam, it´s January 15 or so, and shucks, the rich guy who killed the lady with cancer and cheated on his taxes and has money in (gasp) the Cayman Islands ... was RIGHT!
By the way, I was in the Caymans a couple weeks ago on a cruise. The bus driver was telling us that no, the Caymans aren´t a place to stash money (it´s a British colony and the British govt. would have problems with that) ... but a better place is a place called DELAWARE. Isn´t that big f´ing deal of a Vice President from that joint?
Question. What are we to do when the Republicans go belly up on every issue that is important in furthering Obama´s agenda? Don´t say, we´ll defeat them at the ballot box. By the time 2014 comes around, Obama will have what he needs. He is working on gun control now, but his main goal is immigration. If he is successful, it´s over. We will never be able to defeat the democrats again. I realize this question is silly, but why won´t the RNC get their act together and formulate a plan or a strategy to fight the tyranny that is consuming this nation? It can only be one thing, they are complicent. We have no one strong and courageous enough to make a stand. The Republicans are so worried about getting the blame. By doing nothing history is going to blame them for the loss of liberty and freedom because could not bring themselves to fight. If that is the case, and it appears it is, those cowards are dancing on the graves of every man and woman who fought and died to preserve the freedom they enjoy.
Mitt was right. Meanwhile back in SodØm: The second inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th President of the United States is scheduled to take place in a private swearing-in ceremony on Sunday, January 20 and in a public ceremony on Monday, January 21, 2013. The inauguration will mark the beginning of the second term of Barack Hussein Obama as President and Joe Dopey Biden as Vice President. And The Founders wept!
The MSM, written and voiced, did an excellent job of making the ´low information voter´ think that the lies they were being told by the Democrat Liberals were the truth and the truth that the Republican Conservatives were voicing were lies.
The Democrat Liberals and MSM must have studied how Hitler propagandist did it and took all the pages from that book to use themselves.
Reply 36, Romney made his charge about Mali and Obama said it was not true. What was Romney supposed to say: "TIs too!"
Not only was Romney called a liar on Mali but the Fact Check people claimed he lied about the Italian car company´s intention to move the making of jeeps from the US to China. Fiat lied to FactCheck and Fiat´s word was accepted as truth. Even some Republicans said that Romney lied.
And to the poster who is tired of hearing about Romney and can´t we stop it, no, we can´t. Not until the record has been set straight. Some are quick to fault the GOP for not being tenacious enough but can´t be bothered to listen when a point is pursued.
Romney knew what was happening over there and was rejected by the American electorate, while Obama laughed, and fraudulently told the American people through his media allies that he had decimated the enemy over there and was re-elected. Obviously the reality is that there is something terribly wrong in dog patch!
# 27 claims that Republicans are not fighting and going belly up. Ahem..many Republicans have spoken out forcefully on this situation in the past few days. The national media does not cover Republicans truthfully and will rarely report on their statements. Unfortunately, the same can be said of some right wing talkers. If a Republican condemns Obama and the media and right wing talkers don´t report it, apparently it didn´t happen. Legislatively , Republicans cannot actually do much , since they lost 8 House seats and now have a much decreased majority. Republicans lost 25 of the 33 Senate seats up this past November. Democrats now control the Senate 55 to 45. Demanding they " fight " sounds nice, but, no one ever presents a strategic plan on how to accomplish that legislatively considering the math , the Constitution and the powerful anti Republican media. Rep Mike Rogers ( R-Mich ) was on CNN blasting Obama ´s Algerian Al Queda disaster. “You have to have an overarching plan that puts pressure on these groups. You can´t just fire a few missiles and pack up and go home and hope for the best.” Rep Ileana Ros-Lehtinen ( R- FL ) told The Hill “I´m glad that the president woke up, finally." New House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said the terrorist attack in Algeria was “the latest demonstration of a large and growing radical movement across North Africa.” Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas)- “Today, North Africa is the next frontier in the war on terror ” and “Al Qaeda´s North African franchises have become emboldened by our timid response to Benghazi..."
The Mali guys are a barrel of laughs. They have outlawed music. If you have a cell phone and it rings with a ringtone they take it and maybe you. No music. It is a product of the evil west. The only ringtones permitted are verses from the Koran. There is a singer from Mali and they state if they catch her they will cut her tongue out so she can never sing again. I hate to come across as narrow minded and intolerant but I really hate these idiots. They destroy anything western or non Islam even if it is relic from antiquity. If they get the pyramids they are gone too.
#41 may have inadvertently made #27’s point with his list of Republican representatives quoted on TV and in articles. Of the four listed, the highest-ranking member was the new Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs committee. Where’s the “leadership” including Boehner and McConnell, their Whips, and caucus leaders?
What we have here are some good responses made by lone representatives, usually from conservative districts, but without any strong backup from the “leadership”. This allows the GOP to be on-the-record to prove that they’re “conservative enough”, but they will cover their intended inaction with complaints that the mean old media (including the right-wing talkers!) won’t give them any airtime.
Why not this for a strategic plan? The “leadership” needs to make the rounds of the Sunday “news” shows, they need to hold press conferences on the steps of the Capitol, and to write op-ed pieces for all the major newspapers. Every representative should be on their local TV “news” shows and doing op-ed in their local papers. They must stand up and make the case against Obama loud and constant. Where’s the RNC? Why aren’t they running ads like the NRA?
We’re expected to believe people smart enough to achieve elite positions in the GOP are somehow thwarted because they cannot overcome “the math, the Constitution, and the powerful anti Republican media.” If they’ve got a math problem its because they don’t stand for anything. We’re not asking them to “overcome” the Constitution but to use it and defend it. They’ve had 30 years experience dealing with the “powerful anti Republican media” and they’re still victims of it? Smart people, indeed.
#27 is right. Collusion with the big government statists is the only explanation.
And during theelection and after , Jhon and Ken of KFI640 in LA referred to the republican primaries as a colledtion of mental patients. Fifty thousand watts, heard to Mississppi river.Millions of listeners, and nevera comment on Obama and his Tong. I just don´t know who the advertizers think the customers are. All This from a wsupposed right -center stgation. Is thius related to Malio? sure. Obama manuevers-noting reported. Thye GOP trying to debate issues and tell and inform people of the waiting disaster?// "mental Patients". We have todo this our selves even if w have to drop flyers on our neighbohood doorsteps
Blame game isn´t it fun especially the reactions of the legion of ABR´s who smirked as they sat on their hands and didn´t vote. They probably lost us those House seats too. Now why should the survivor GOp Congressional critters listen to them at all?
The “feminist nightmare” is recurring. Unbowed by Politico labeling her with this epithet a couple of weeks ago, Michelle Obama continues to do what her critics regard as frightening behaviors. Last week, she assaulted independent women by showing off the White House Christmas decorations. “Our goal is for every room and every tree to tell a story,” she explained to an audience of military families in the East Room, where her two-tone gray dress matched the silver ornaments on the trees. She spoke of Christmas trees made from stacks of books (“they’re very cool!”) and described the “first dog display”
Anyone who’s ever gone on a diet is told to lay off the booze because it’s high in calories. And that, of course, must make it very fattening indeed. Go onto the NHS Direct website, and you’ll be told a glass of wine contains as many calories as a slice of cake. Or if you prefer beer, the British Nutrition Foundation reminds you two pints are roughly the equivalent in calories to a full glass of single cream. So you may be surprised to learn that there’s no scientific evidence whatsoever to support the idea that alcohol makes you on weight. That’s hugely counter-intuitive, I know, because alcohol certainly is said to contain lots of calories.
President Barack Obama sounded a nostalgic personal note Sunday night and offered a rare self-assessment while criticizing congressional Republicans as an "impediment" to governing during the start of a West Coast fundraising tour for the Democratic Party. Obama told donors the sight of Mt. Rainier illuminated by a setting sun was particularly special because it reminded him of his mother, who attended high school in the Seattle area. "I feel the spirit of my mom," he said. He also attempted to contrast himself with Republicans who control the House of Representatives, saying they are "more focused on positioning themselves for
Los Angeles - Rather than thanking a list of friends and colleagues, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis used their American Music Awards acceptance speech to send a message of tolerance on Sunday night. Ben Haggerty, the rapper known as Macklemore, accepted the award for favorite rap/hip-hop album, then quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in a live satellite feed from the rap group´s latest tour stop. "Due to the fact that we are in Florida tonight accepting this award I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it," he said.
China and India’s success in weakening the latest global warming agreement created friction with other developing nations that are seeking to step up the fight against climate change. The two countries insisted on single-word changes for a deal at a United Nations conference involving 190 nations on Nov. 23. Instead of making “commitments” to roll back fossil fuel emissions, they signed up for “contributions,” a formulation that allows more flexibility in their action. Those last-minute revisions at a meeting that ran overtime by almost 30 hours underscored the reluctance of China and India to join in the sort of emissions
Washington - Hobby Lobby, a chain of crafts stores, closes on Sundays, costing its owners millions but honoring their Christian faith. The stores play religious music. Employees get free spiritual counseling. But they do not get free insurance coverage for some contraceptives, even though President Obama’s health care law requires it. Hobby Lobby, a corporation, says that forcing it to provide the coverage would violate its religious beliefs. A federal appeals court agreed, and the Supreme Court is set to decide on Tuesday whether it will hear the Obama administration’s appeal from that decision or appeals from one of
A historic agreement on Iran´s nuclear programme was made possible by months of unprecedented secret meetings between US and Iranian officials, in further signs of the accelerating detente between two of the world´s most adversarial powers, it emerged on Sunday. The meetings ran parallel to official negotiations involving five other world powers, (Snip) The Obama administration asked journalists not to publish details they had uncovered of the secret diplomacy until the Geneva talks were over for fear of derailing them. The Associated Press and a Washington-based news website, Al-Monitor, finally did so
Tokyo - Japan’s foreign minister on Sunday refused to recognize China’s newly claimed air defense zone over disputed islands, signaling that Japan would not back down as tensions increased in the maritime dispute. China on Saturday said its “air defense identification zone” would give it the right to identify and possibly take military action against aircraft near the islands in the East China Sea. The uninhabited islands are administered by Japan but claimed by China and Taiwan. China’s announcement appeared to be the latest step in what analysts have called a strategy to chip away at Japan’s claims of control of the islands.
Seattle - Boeing´s ties to the Pacific Northwest date back more than a century, when William Boeing purchased a Seattle shipyard that would become his first airplane factory. In recent years, however, those ties have been fraying, first with the company shifting its headquarters to Chicago, (Snip) In the contract vote late Wednesday, The International Association of Machinists District 751 rejected the proposal with 67 percent of the votes. Union members who called for a no vote did so in protest of Boeing´s push to end a traditional pension plan and increase their health care costs.
"Character is what you do when no one is watching." It´s a bit of a trite saying, attributed to coaches, motivational speakers and fortune cookie authors (by the way, whose idea was it for fortune cookies to replace predictions with treacly aphorisms from the "Successories" reject pile?). Still, the expression´s popularity illustrates the power of the idea behind it. Character is what you do when the only controlling authority is your conscience. Because young people do not yet have fully formed characters, they often need incentives beyond exhortations to do the right thing.
Washington - Problems with the federal health insurance website have prevented tens of thousands of low-income people from signing up for Medicaid even though they are eligible, federal and state officials say, undermining one of the chief goals of the 2010 health care law. The website, HealthCare.gov, is primarily seen as a place to buy private insurance with federal subsidies, but it is also a gateway to Medicaid, which generally provides more benefits at less cost to consumers. That door has been closed for the last six weeks, with the federal government unable to transfer its files to state Medicaid
Corydon, Iowa - The hills of southern Iowa bear the scars of America´s push for green energy: The brown gashes where rain has washed away the soil. The polluted streams that dump fertilizer into the water supply. Even the cemetery that disappeared like an apparition into a cornfield. It wasn´t supposed to be this way. (Snip) But the ethanol era has proven far more damaging to the environment than politicians promised and much worse than the government admits today. As farmers rushed to find new places to plant corn, they wiped out millions of acres of conservation land, destroyed habitat and
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has high praise for potential 2016 contenders Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “I think Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever, and he has been with me, at my side, in every tough decision that I’ve made,” Obama told MSNBC in an interview Thursday held at American University. “Hillary, I think, will go down in history as one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve ever had, and helped to transition us away from a deep hole that we were in,
