On the Embassy Closures
National Review Online, by Erick Stakelbeck

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 8/3/2013 12:04:38 AM

Some quick thoughts on the State Department announcement that American embassies throughout the Muslim world will be closed this Sunday, August 4, due to reported al-Qaeda terror threats: 1) The fact that this is reportedly an al-Qaeda plot shows once again that AQ is alive and well globally, contrary to President Obama’s ludicrous and willfully misleading statements over the past two years that it is “on the run” and “nearing defeat.” In fact, al-Qaeda, its affiliates, and its allies now cover more geographical ground across the Muslim world than they did on 9/11

Well Duh. Where oh where has the mind been wandering. First never thought about the closing of the embassies and obomba´s birthday being on or close to the same day. (frankly when is his TRUE birthday? He might have just been pieced together from rejects) Second item that just slipped by. Now that the regime has officially felt the need to close buildings due to security, does this indicate oh dark won is lying? If he does lie would this count as one lie covering the entire closing list or a number of lies --1 for each embassy? And, of course his lie that Al Qaeda is on the run. He must trim his elongated nose every evening just to look human.

Close ´em and leave ´em closed. They still benefit more from our having an embassy in their country than vice versa. And reciprocally, they would have to close their embassies in Washington. We´d rid ourselves of some enemies within our country.

Of course, this would not have happened at all during previous administrations when the US still had some respect.

Al-Qaeda must have figured out that the date of birth is the least suspicious thing on that digitized copy of that supposed birth certificate that was so quickly "revealed" then whisked away faster than you can say Benghazi cover-up.

Closing the embassies for one day? Well, I guess those big bad terrorists can´t fall back and regroup. Instead, they say, "No one´s home so just forget it. There is no way we could just do it another day." I don´t trust this administration to tell us the sun will rise in the east. Something is weird about this whole announcement.

If the main stream media and newspapers ever totaled up the complete list of bollox-ups of this President they would run screaming from the room. BUT THEY WON´T! And my own Democratic friends either don´t pay attention or willfully close their eyes! And of course, one of the most horrific things is, as in the WSJournal Daniel Henniger piece on Aug. lst, how Obama ignores the law, the Constitiution etc. and just ignores or appoints........he is changing our system of checks and balances with his own little hatchet and Congress and the Courts have little say. And of course, we have the elite Republicans in D.C. either saying nothing to speak of or promoting the elites wish for 12 million illegals to "come out of the shadows" in a desire for cheap labor and a fear of Hispanics. If THEY hadn´t turned off so many Tea Party conservatives who stayed home in disgust, Romney might have won.

Obama might as well be the head of Al Qaeda.

He has armed them with illegally transferred Stinger missiles from Benghazi. He has insured they were not arrested for the horrific torture and murders of Americans in Benghazi. He has helped them proliferate across the Middle East and in the USA he refuses to prosecute a Muslim who killed our men on a military base and the Muslim murderer continues with rights and advantages never seen before.

Perhaps he is the head of Al Qaeda...that would finally make all his moves understandable including his missing time at at Columbia....and the millions he spent sealing his records...and the statement he"ll stand with the Muslims...and the bizzare bowing. Who is our president...really?

Yes, #12, and magical thinking infects Leftism from top to bottom. Some al Qaeda attacks have occurred on "significant" dates, though they are often significant to THEM, not to us. However, history is so littered with Muslim grudge-events that ANY attack can be traced to some incident in the past that this new atrocity is supposedly "revenge" for. Stupid Obama thinks that his birthday is so important that naturally the terrorists would want to mark it with an attack. Very likely August 4 is the date some Crusader took a leak on a date tree in Aleppo 800 years ago, an insult to Islam that must be avenged!!! But the magical thinkers believe that if they can just interrupt the DATE, they can ward off the danger. As if this were a Harry Potter spell, where if you simply pronounce one word wrong, the whole thing will fail.

All I can say is feckless. I don´t know how much of this storyline to believe but the downward spiral in the ME under Obama is continuing. I´m certainly not in Intelligence but I get the feeling that Obama´s bungling of Benghazi is coming home to roost. We look weak. Al Qaeda may take advantage but in Benghazi it seems to me like we stabbed Russia and Iran in the back.

This is serious business. Syria has turned into a full blown proxy war and Obama has "led from his behind" as usual. This one has me concerned.

I have a few serious questions and haven´t seen them addressed elsewhere. Have we already deployed enough security people to protect these facilities? Where do all the personnel/families go during these closures? Will they be evacuated or just hunker down in some supposed ´safe rooms´?

How convenient will it be for a major AQ attack if everyone is in one place and the exact locations and time of the closures is announced three days ahead of time? Much more bang for the buck.

And when nothing happens the regime can beat its horn for saving us from this dangerous threat. I smell dog wagging.

Islam and its militant branch, Al-Qaeda, is on a quest to dominate the world. They have been planning it since its beginning and no one like Obama is going to stop them. Obama and the rest of the idiotic, naive Progressives believe if they act nice to them and treat them with respect, they will return likewise. They won´t and they don´t.
Our president and our government are there to protect us, but instead, they are acting like stupid children that don´t have a clue about what to do about it and as a result, we WILL one day face this threat as individuals, with our lives.
Scripture says that when the Anti-Christ comes into power, people will not be able to buy or sell anything without his mark on their hand of forehead and those that take the mark will be doomed eternally. The only thing with that kind of potential power and threat is Sharia Law; and Obama, instead of pushing back is allowing it to happen.
Stupid doesn´t come close to describing his mental ability, nor those that voted for him.

Yes, closing the embassy will confuse and frustrate A-Q and other terrorists. The bonus paid for suggesting that plan must have been enormous.

It might have been cheaper to announce Obama´s Birthday will be a secret this year. But if conditions improve it will be revealed again next year.

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

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

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.

Attorney General Eric Holder must be suffering from a sort of amnesia.

Aside from the fact that he seemed to have relished the combat with Representative Gohmert in quite unprofessional tones (“you don’t want to go there, buddy, alright?”/ “good luck with your asparagus”), he seems to forget what former attorney general Alberto Gonzales once endured both in the liberal media and before Democrats

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of
