Made-up Threat Rehabilitates
the Big Brother

The U.S. State Department issued a global alert about the terrorist threat allegedly posed by Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany. However, this was only an attempt to justify the activities of the National Security Agency.Last Saturday, right after alerting of the terror threat civilians and BOLO complex ("be on the lookout") that includes law enforcement and federal officials, President Barack Obama went to play golf, and then celebrated his birthday at the presidential retreat at Camp David.

I am glad we can access the Russian and British papers to get news. I wonder why US papers are being unloaded at fire sale prices.

Is The Won afflicted with ADD? Was the terrorist threat an actual phony scandal?

As with the exit-announcements for Iraq and Afghanistan, all this last weekend´s posturing has done is tell the adversary how long he has to wait.

In the words of Obama, terrorism is a man-caused disaster. By Obama´s man-caused panic and evacuation, Obama caused the death´s of eight American lives. This also is a man-caused disaster. By Obama´s own definition, he is a terrorist.

With all the unanswered questions and obvious coverups perpetrated on U. S. Citizens, Washington DC has proved it will lie without compunction. In my opinion, the Federal Government has lost all credibility.

Hey, #3, I have serious ADHD. I have owned successful businesses, have many fascinating friends, love and am loved and enjoy my life tremendously. I am neither deficient or disordered, thank you. My ADHD is extreme, BTW -very. And I only took medication once, for two days- horrible stuff- Adderol. The doctor actually told me I would hate it -stop giving it to your kids!

That´s not the reason for Skippy´s behavior, he is lazy, irresponsible, self-absorbed, immature, unconcerned about other people and a pathological liar. That isn´t ADD. It´s...being lazy, irresponsible, self-absorbed, immature, unconcerned about other people and a pathological liar. (Not being antagonistic, ADD/ADHD is a great gift. There would be a smile on the end of this for you too, but I can´t put in a smarticon, can I?)

I take news from Pravda with a bit more than a grain of salt. However, in this case they may have more than a kernel of truth. Zippy playing golf during a crisis is nothing new, nor is advertising what we are going to do to the enemy. If you start adding up all the little things such as "massive chatter from Al Qaeda" "Our intelligence shows..." and so on is sure takes the steam out of the NSA spying on Americans, deflects any interest in Benghazi, puts the IRS on the back burner and who cares about Obamacare when we are about to be attacked. Would this administration lie to the American people for political gain? I can think of a one word answer and it starts with the letter Y.

No matter what are the motivations for this action, the obvious fact is that large numbers of people have a very cynical view of our government and they have lost the trust of a huge segment of the population.

This is too easy for intelligent human beings. Why is it so hard for American liberals to understand?:

They also strongly emphasized that the information was intercepted by the National Security Agency (NSA) notorious for the recent scandal with total surveillance. The New York Times (a mouthpiece of the Democrats)...

The closing down of all our embassies smelled from the moment it was revealed. It reeks of a futile attempt to justify the NSA´s wholesale invasion of the privacy of Americans. The question remains about why this Administration is gathering all this information on every American´s private communications when a simple profiling of Muslims, foreign and domestic, will work just as well.

Is anyone else beginning to wonder who is actually running the country? I´m beginning to believe it is the duo of Michelle and Valerie. Principally Valerie. Their ties go back to the Chicago machine even before Barry.

One of these days I´ll post what I really think is going on with our President. For me the circumstantial evidence continues to mount. From Choom Gangs to couch photos of himself and a gay Pakistani. I´m convinced the only thing that is preventing him from his vision of grandeur is his alternative lifestyle and his considerable drug use. Further, I firmly believe his marriage was arranged. I´ll leave it there.

If you are cynical enough, this was actually a three-fer. First, you get to announce that our intelligence agencies are keeping the people safe. Next you get days of needed distraction from the mess Obama is making of his job. Finally, you get to make America look weak, which seems to be Obama´s natural instinct.

Phony POTUS gives phony alert.
FTA " According to the American political scientist Mike Baker, many military veterans and U.S. law enforcement agencies believe that the terrorist alert announced this weekend is ungrounded. "The problem is that Obama cannot decide whether Al-Qaeda is on the run or the al-Qaeda is a threat to the American people," said Baker. It seems, however, that in this instance it was an operation for domestic consumption designed to rehabilitate the "Big Brother."
Baker is former? CIA - he is outing our phony POTUS and his phony alert.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev. Al Sharpton‘s National Action Network.The visit comes days after revelations surfaced that Sharpton worked with the FBI. The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev.

Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged 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.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values.

The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
