Obama Not Informed of Extent of
Egyptian Violence Until August 15

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 8/16/2013 8:57:08 PM

The Washington Examiner is reporting that Obama "apparently" did not know about the extent of the violence in Egypt until National Security Adviser Susan Rice informed him of it on August 15. CNN´s Jack Tapper reported that the violence that has filled world news outlets for two days and has resulted in hundreds of deaths is just now reaching the president via the individual who infamously blamed Benghazi on a YouTube video. On August 15 Tapper wrote: This morning, the president had a phone call, a principals meeting with Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Secretary of State John Kerry, and

This is really strange!

There´s a photo on the Weekly Standard website, dated August 12, 2013, with the caption:

"National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice briefs President Barack Obama during his Presidential Daily Briefing in Chilmark, Mass., August 12, 2013," reads the White House caption for the photo.

when one reads this and reads about Obama playing spades during Osama raid when he was photographed/advertised as supposedly watching/overseeing studiously in the Situation Room, one wonders if we are getting the "Hollywood" version of his presidency, while the guts of it are something entirely different, most unsettling.

This is bullfeathers. Even an arrogant Susan Rice is too smart to have kept quiet or downplayed this chaos in Egypt when she briefed the President. I´m sure he is briefed daily, but I can also believe he doesn´t really listen and doesn´t much care. This is a clumsy Obama attempt to explain his tardy report to the nation. "I didn´t know!!" Susan Rice is accustomed to being the patsy, so she doesn´t mind a repeat of the Benghazi video flimflam.

Obama War Room: Balk Like an Egyptian

JOHN KERRY: General al-Sisi agreed to accept your call as soon as he’s finished executing someone, sir. He´s giving you ten minutes.
OBAMA: What´ll that ten minutes cost us?
KERRY: Fifty M1A2 Abrams tanks and ten million hollow points in various calibers to help keep the peace. On line 2 now.
OBAMA: General! Good to speak with you.

Ignore what you´re hearing, sir. Egypt will receive all twenty F-16 fighters, as promised.

Yes, U.S. law does forbid military aid to leaders of a coup d´etat. However, my lawyers will argue that you’ve merely appropriated the media and are controlling the dissemination of news. We’re calling it a coup d’ata, which is a whole different kettle of fish.

Doesn´t matter if it flies. I’ll simply ship the planes, tanks, and ammunition to your Minister of Antiquities. What he does with them is his business.

I’m aware that unrest is spreading, sir. How may I assist you?

Unorthodox but logical, General. My Defense Secretary will coordinate with your people. We may yet stave off a civil war, inshallah. [hangs up]
KERRY: A plan, sir?
OBAMA: The masses need a distraction before internal strife rips Egypt apart. Sisi requested a green light to attack Israel. I agreed. That will rally the country around the military.
KERRY: But when Israel recovers from the surprise . . .
OBAMA: Then I’ll fly to Egypt and broker a peace between rounds of golf at the Katameya Dunes Lake Course in Cairo. Israel accedes or we cut off their aid.

[enter First Lady]

We’re going to Africa again? Let’s take Chicago’s entire South Side with us this time. They´re well-armed, so they´ll be safe in Cairo. We’ll need several aircraft carriers for transport. You hear me, Barack?

He probably told them not to discuss anything about Egypt while he is on vacation. He has too much to do; golf, ride bicycle, golf, eat out, party, golf...Why isn´t Valerie Jarrett being questioned about what is going on. No one has her on TV like they did Karl Rove. His brief insipid statement on TV could have been better made by anyone but him. He shows no emotion at all when talking. He really doesn´t care.

Has Obama suspended the daily briefing? Is he so confident in his ability to deal with the Middle East that he feels he can make decisions without facts? Look at the world today after 4 1/2 years of Obama´s reign. The Middle East is in serious continual conflict. Iraq and Afghanistan are where our men and women go to die thanks to this administration´s ROE´s. Russia and China have dismissed Obama as a lightweight. North Korea is even more unstable. South America is being gobbled up by socialism/communism. Africa is a awash in genocide. Then we have our beloved country that is financially, militarily, amd morally on its knees and you see Obama´s hands all over it. He is not only lacking in intelligence. He is too lazy and apathetic to do his job. He is a narcissist with passive-aggressive behavior and is totally unfit for the office he holds.

Either way, briefed daily or not, it´s dereliction of duty and impeachable. Not that any RINO would dare stand up to King Putt.

It came to me this morning while I fixed breakfast for my dad. This administration is like a bunch of children playing "school". Remember back in the day when one of you was the teacher, one was the principal and the rest were the students? You really had no idea how to teach or lead and you never learned anything. There was just a lot of writing on the blackboard, shuffling papers and asking to go to the bathroom. Usually the game disintegrated into chaos as other "students" wanted to be the "teacher" and everyone knew it was just pretend. Then it was outside for some real fun. Sound familiar?

How many Egyptian people imprisoned for political reasons, raped, assaulted, died, had their churches burned down while the Morsi & the Muslim Brotherhood were in charge?

They are continuing to burn Coptic Christian churches - why is that? Is that the way they express their desire for democracy?

Obama should have pulled the aid THEN - and he is trying to resist calls to pull the aid now while the military is in charge because he is gambling that Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood will be back in charge again.

What would be the logistics involved in having to reauthorize a billion dollars of aid every year to Egypt, once Morsi and the MB are back in charge?

The only reason Obama even pretends to be president is his love of the title and, of course, the perquisites that go with that title. It´s simply grand to experience all the dumb adulation of the Lofo masses (which include 95% of the mainstream media) and have the ability to fly everywhere with retinues of literally hundreds of starry-eyed hangers on, eat lobster and wagyu beef, drink thousand dollar bottles of wine, party hearty ´til indecent hours, golf ´til you drop, smoke funny cigarettes, and play cards with Reggie while the world goes to hell all around you. Obama has never done any work before. Since he´s having such a great time, why should he start now? After all, he´s entitled.

Oh yes, and thank you, Sagman (#17). That was masterful.

One of two changes obviously need to be made in the WH, either:

1. The "daily briefing" needs to be given by someone who actually notes the most volatile situations in the world -- at least to the extent that lay news sources are already covering them.

or

2. Obama´s Czar of Propaganda needs to verify that there is no contrary photographic or video evidence before issuing an official (and blatantly untrue) excuse for Obama doing the wrong thing.

Foreign policy is not on this administration´s to-care list. It´s not the Chicago way, which is about using official means to extort treasure from whatever source is available. If anything, Democrats always seem to have a strong attraction to Islamic "freedom fighters", from the Ayatollah to now Morsi. If you´re a secular Ba´athist, you´re an evil dictator. If you´re an Arab royal family, however, you´re a sugar daddy worth protecting. Ask Saddam´s ghost how that works.

I just know this is all Israel´s fault. There they sit in the midst of all this chaos, while those ever loving Muslims destroy themselves. It´s like watching Chicago and Detroit on a typical night after the sun goes down.

I´m not sure our foreign born, fearless leader even knows where Egypt is on the map unless it is near a golf course, a vacation spa or Reggie Love. When he and John Kerry (he was in Viet Nam) both get snubbed by Putin in the same month you know the end is near.

Heard a discussion on Hannity the other day. The black panther (he calls himself hannity´s brother from another mother) and some white lady discussed the rodeo clown. And the lady blabbered something about defending the dignity of the Office.
This community organizer doesn´t understand the word dignity! It was all said about him but the cabal holds the TRUMP card: he is black and, I am sure, they threaten riots like we never saw in this country. Scary, isn´t it? Very scary indeed!

When Obama is out of the White House, is he out of contact with every official except Rice? What about the Secretary of State? Wouldn´t Kerry be updating the President about the upheaval in Cairo´s streets? The ambassador, who isn´t still in Cairo, but is somewhere keeping up with events, we hope. None of this can be believed. But, if it´s only partially true, Barack Obama is playing emperor, not leader of the free world.

In 2008 Soros Nanny and Harry were the puppet masters . They didn´t even notice that position gave way after Obe claimed he killed Bin laden. 2013 finds the strings passed to the Muslim brother hood leaving Obe dangling in fear and drugged sleep.
He mentally can´t go anywhere without enough security to protect a small nation.
In all kindness he should be relieved of the strings and allowed to enjoy life in Hawaii before it´s too late.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by

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

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

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. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

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

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

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

Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat

Washington Post, by Wesley Lowery    Original Article

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

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center.

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

U.S. blocks Iran’s pick as envoy to

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
mortgage relief could get
stuck with a big tax bill
Washington Post, by Dina ElBoghdady    Original Article

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

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.

Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight
