Do You Know What
is Happening in Mali?

Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Prof. Phyllis Chesler

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/19/2013 2:05:15 PM

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!

There, I fixed America!

Obama initiated & his minons trained the Muslim Brotherhood his tactics for community organizing as a cover for The Arab Springs, lying that it was locals seeking democracy.

Of course, that lie doesn´t work when overthrowing an existing democracy so the leader becomes the evil one.

Mali, Alberia, India,Somalia & others battle the same Arab Springs but the MSM win´t cover them.

Now that the Islamist raiders have gained power in Somalia, Hillary is scheduled to bestow upon the invaders the title of Legitimate Government for Somalia this week!

The only ray of sunshine in all this is that the UN, Cameron & Hollande now know exactly who Obama is.

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?

His administration and the complicit media are doing it one step at a time. We have given him four more years to destroy America as it was founded.

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.

It´s going to get worse before it gets better in America. That´s why it is imperative that we assert our 2nd Amendment rights and all that goes with it.

Otherwise, once the islamoterrorists win the smaller battles, we will become Mali on a bigger scale. The terrorist in the White House and her puppet barry will have given them the key to the gates.

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.

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.

Issa: IRS coordinated with
Dems to attack tea party group.
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/9/2014 6:08:46 PM     Post Reply
House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa on Wednesday accused his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, of coordinating with the IRS to attack one of the tea party groups that was targeted by the tax agency for intrusive scrutiny and long delays. Mr. Issa and five other top Republicans said they have just last week been given emails showing Mr. Cummings sought information from the IRS about True the Vote, a conservative tax-exempt organization that drew the ire of liberals for pushing states to eliminate potentially bogus names from their voter rolls. Mr. Issa said the IRS employees appear to have

Prepare for drones that ‘perch’

Imagine a world where drones never have to touch the ground after takeoff. That’s what MIT PhD. candidate Joseph Moore did, and now he’s on the cusp of creating a drone that can “perch” on power lines just like birds to recharge its batteries. Mr. Moore gave Business Insider a demonstration of the technology he’s perfecting by using a glider as proof of concept. In short, if a drone is equipped with the a magnetometer it should be possible to make the aircraft capable of identifying magnetic fields given off by power lines, hone in on the signal they emit, and then maneuver in such a way that would allow the drone to perch

Army goes to war with National Guard,

The National Guard is following a direct order — but it’s not happy with it. All of the Guard’s AH-64 Apache helicopters are scheduled to go to the active Army, and there’s nothing its top brass can do about it. “None of us like what we’re having to do,” National Guard Chief Gen. Frank Grass told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, the military website Defense One reported. “My big concern right now is figuring out how I’m going to move, and how many states I’m going to have an impact on, and what’s the cost of facilities and to retrain pilots. I’ve got to tackle that because the decision’s been made.”

Alec Baldwin deletes homophobic
tweets toward former Romney aide

Nearly five months after Alec Baldwin was fired by MSNBC for using anti-gay slurs, the actor has again waded into troubled waters by sending a homophobic tweet to a former Mitt Romney aide. First reported by Buzzfeed, Mr. Baldwin got into it with former Romney aide Garrett Jackson after the actor sent out a tweet criticizing the Keystone XL pipeline documentary “Above All Else.” “The film Above All Else shows how oil, and keystone in particular, destroy our lives,” Mr. Baldwin said. Mr. Jackson replied, “Need to do a film on how you and Hollywood distort our lives.” The two went back and forth for a bit until

IRS workers in several offices have been openly supporting President Obama, including by donning pro-Obama paraphernalia and urging callers to reelect the president in 2012, according to allegations contained in a new government watchdog report. A report by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, released Wednesday, cited accusations that workers at a Dallas IRS office may have violated federal law by wearing pro-Obama items like shirts, stickers and buttons. The Hatch Act forbids Executive Branch workers from engaging in partisan political activity. The report comes as two House committees move to take action against former IRS

Washington - Less than three months before the Boston Marathon bombings, a bitter, frustrated Tamerlan Tsarnaev visited a federal immigration office in the Boston area and signed forms seeking to legally change his first name. Eager to recast himself in the model of a well-known rebel figure killed by Russian forces in 2009, Tsarnaev chose as his new name "Muaz," according to a previously undisclosed Homeland Security Department petition form, which was obtained by The Times. It was not only a tribute to Emir Muaz, a celebrated fighter in Russia´s Dagestan republic, it was also the nickname rebels had given Tsarnaev

The UMass guard — a redshirt sophomore who hails from Plainfield, NJ, and attended St. Patrick in Elizabeth — came out to his teammates last Wednesday, according to an espnW story. Gordon’s gotten help from coach Derek Kellogg to deliver his message to the team. Kellogg had called an impromptu team meeting and said, “We’re all here together, and we need to love each other for who we are. One of your family members, your brother, wants to let you know something about himself.” Gordon wasn’t immediately able to speak

Pretoria - A South African prosecutor forced Oscar Pistorius on Wednesday to look at a forensic photograph that showed the head of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after it was blown open by a hollow-point bullet fired by the Olympic and Paralympic track star. In a dramatic opening to his cross-examination of Pistorius, prosecutor Gerrie Nel made him admit he had killed Steenkamp (Snip) Early in his questioning, he asked Pistorius if he knew what a "zombie stopper" was, to which the defendant answered no. After a brief adjournment, the court then viewed video footage broadcast before the trial by Britain´s Sky News of Pistorius

Bashar al-Assad´s Lebanese ally Hezbollah said his Western foes must now accept he will go on ruling Syria after fighting rebels to a standstill - a "reality" to which his foreign enemies seem increasingly resigned. (Snip) He said the United States and its Western allies were in disarray and lacked a coherent policy on Syria - reflecting the quandary that Western officials acknowledge they face since the pro-democracy protests they supported in 2011 became a war that has drawn al Qaeda and other militants to the rebel cause. Syria's fractious opposition - made up of guerrillas inside the country and a largely impotent political coalition in exile - had,

Whatever deal the U.S. and its international partners think they agreed to with Iran last November, the Middle Eastern nation’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei wants to make one thing clear: Its nuclear research will continue. “These talks need to continue, but all must know that despite continuation of the talks, activities of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the field of nuclear research and development won’t be halted at all,” Mr. Khamenei told scientists in Tehran on Wednesday, the BBC reported. In January, Iran began to slow down its uranium enrichment to below 5 percent — the level needed to use the material for military

Paris - Keen to ensure his ministers are paying attention, the French president, François Hollande, has imposed a ban on mobile phones during cabinet sessions. Ministers will now be forced to leave their portable devices at the door when they join the French government´s weekly cabinet meeting, government spokesman Stéphane Le Foll told reporters. "To focus on what we must do, the president has decided that there will be no more mobile phones in cabinet," Le Foll said. "Each of us will now have to talk and listen to what is said and will no longer be able to tap away at this magnificent tool," he said.

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
