Woman informing Kerry, McCain’s opinions
on Syria also an advocate for Syrian rebels

Daily Caller, by Charles C. Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 9/6/2013 5:47:40 AM

The woman whose opinion lawmakers are relying on to go to war in Syria is also a paid advocate for the war-torn country’s rebels. On Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry encouraged members of the House of Representatives to read a Wall Street Journal op-ed by 26-year-old Elizabeth O’Bagy — an analyst with the Institute for the Study of War — who asserted that concerns about extremists dominating among the Syrian rebels are unfounded. “Contrary to many media accounts, the war in Syria is not being waged entirely, or even predominantly, by dangerous Islamists and al-Qaida die-hards,” O’Bagy wrote for the Journal

Comments:
Bret Baier discussed this on Fox last night. Fox has used her, too, without knowing this background.

The evidence mounts that the Obama Administration backs radical Islam. Fox may or may not have known this woman´s background but it is a sure bet that Kerry knows.

This is appalling. Why in the name of heaven is anyone listening to a 26 year-old anything about matters as grave as this. Then to find out this woman (girl) is deeply engaged with muslim factions and can´t possibly be objective in her own assessments. This is just the kind of seditious cr*p we should expect from this administration.

Well, well, well...

Isn´t this an interesting turn of events? So we can´t trust our government to shoot straight with us. Kerry and McCain are cut from the same cloth. They are both ruling elites, and they both used their military service as a leg up in politics. McCain is a war monger and I can´t for the life of me understand why considering his background. His opinion on anything should be suspect, but his opinion on anything having to do with going to war should be immediately rejected. They both have an agenda and it is not one that is good for this country.

I watched this pretty girl yesterday on C Span, and wondered at the time how she could speak with such great confidence as to the composition of the rebel forces. She went so far as to say, or intimate, that Al Quaeda was almost non existent, and that the rebels would be allies of the u.s.
amazing.

she´s been all over Fox. Very attractive. Very young. Well spoken, glib even. Yesterday someone - perhaps Cavuto - called her out on her position, opinions and source of funding. She kept saying that her only source of income was as a ´´contractor´´. That´s a very fluid term...

Gee, this "woman" is not even old enough to be off her parents´ health insurance policy!

In one instance, the Obama administration wants us to believe that she is a "child" and must be supported by her parents at age 26. In another, we are supposed to listen to this person as some kind of "expert" at age 26.

Wonder when she picked up her 10,000 hours toward expertise in war, al Qaeda, and Syrian rebels?

Kerry´s having relied on "an article" written by this woman was in an article posted yesterday.

At the time I commented sarcastically that that should make us feel better, and that he and the Obots were grabbing at "facts" to support what they had already decided they wanted to do.

http://lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=750839

It obviously isn´t working as she has imploded and their "facts" are out the window. They are left looking even more incopetent and foolish than before, if that is possible.

Even Bret Baier looked sheepish when he had to reveal the information about her yesterday. Fox had used her. She had apparently appeared on his program? Oy.

The agendas of so-called "pundits" must always be checked out. And then the weight to be given their opinions (often stated by them as "facts") can be determined.

This is going to be one informative vote coming up on Syria ... Per Republicans it will differentiate and expose all the political elitists with ties to big Gov, to the war machine (NSA, CIA, etc..) vs. the true conservatives (less Government). Per the democrats it will expose the political power grabbers at any cost with NO ethics (for Obo) vs. the "true" liberals who are against intervening ... Interesting, Interesting!

#25, the Constitutional separation of powers has it that the Commander in Chief is in charge of management of the military ~ in peace and in war, although only Congress can declare war or call up the militia.

So, a True Conservative, in your mind, can´t be in favor of national defense and the use of huge, colossal even, thermonuclear warheads mounted on really big rockets owned by, Voila, the federal gub´mnt?

That we´ve gotta´ be in favor of small gub´mnt, not simply our federal system, with little Delaware and Rhode Island out there conducting foreign affairs and fighting their own wars?

Can I say that sounds like the ruminations of a 26 year old ~ just like the one we are talking about ~ someone who might even be an acrobatic ballerina pole dancer just like Snowden´s little co-worker?

Well, can I?

If you really want small, not just divided government ruled under constitutional principles, you can´t be a Conservative! We are realists and know there are bad guys in the world who´d murder us in the bed and fry our chillun´ for breakfast! We know they must be stopped. Assad is quite possibly not among that crowd, but there are others ~ lots of them.

Mooseface John Kerry the pacifist, anti-war, liberal demonstrator from the 60s getting his advice from a 26 year old muslim radical on thoughts of war. What a dupe.
If this group of Washington yahoos had been around in 1940 we would certainly be doomed to defeat by Hitler and the Japanese.
Just the fact that John McCain was playing cards on his cell phone tells me these jerkweeds are not serious. Not one dime or drop of American blood should be wasted on this middle east civil war. Bomb Iran if you have save face with the help of Israel. Ihat would get their attention.

On the one hand, Mr. Obama has chosen this pro-Syrian-rebel woman to parcel out information to his administration. On the other hand, he has Valerie Jarrett ordering him to stand down during critical moments requiring immediate US military response in our national interest. Is it any wonder this President always appears to waffle, to be ineffectual, indecisive, and without any core character principle?

Hey, McCain, and the rest of the wizards of smart, how about calling the NSA or your crack investigators, or even Google this woman, instead of playing poker while someone is briefing you? I appreciate his ability to multitask but it irks me that a topic so vital to national security bores this man so much that he amuses himself with poker while being advised. And we trust him? Sorry but his is the man who was captured and tortured, and glad he survived but clearly not one to show us how to evade and beat the enemy. Write about your experience and go home. We need hawks not dumbbells.

I don´t believe it´s any mystery that our government has been infiltrated by Muslim sympathizers. People have been writing same for about 10 years and while the warnings signs were there, no one seems to have had the incentive to do much about it.

Now we reap the whirlwind. Thank God some of these infiltrators, advocates of Sharia Law in America, are slowly being revealed.

One would think by now we´d be a tad cautious about vetting people. Obama´s "czars" are bad enough, but now we´ve got children advising Senators and Presidents how to further the cause of Islam in America.

Kerry, of all people, should know not to trust the opinion of a 26 year old:

Breitbart.com - September 2, 2013:

After Medea Benjamin of Code Pink broke into the hearing yelling anti-war arguments, Secretary Kerry retorted, “The first time I testified before this committee, when I was 27 years old, I had very similar feelings to that protester.”

Holy smoke! I watched Bret interview her on Fox the other day as a Syria expert and was thoroughly unimpressed. She was so bad I figured it must have been Bring Your Daughter To Work Day at Fox, and wondered who she was related to. She was stringing together these long, incoherent sentences that made no sense whatsoever. Very "what I did last summer." Very embarrassing. Very sophomoric.

I also understand the SETF organized McCain´s recent Syria trip. Who paid for it, since they are advocates for the rebels? And the ISW is worth a close look as well. Hardly a disinterested bystander.

When I saw this babe on Fox, I was amazed that she was being touted as some kind of authority on the rebel groups. She looked like an American but something was really off.

Then I heard her on the radio the next day as her assessment was being replayed. At that point "hearing" made me very suspicious because of her pronunciation of certain words - she did self-correct but not before I was truly alarmed. My question is: where was she educated?

By her Western appearance and her ability to speak English, I concluded that she is trying to pass herself off as an American, much like Valerie Jarrett. Hope McPain catches on that he´s being toyed with.

Dr. Kimberly Kagen started the Institute for the Study of War in 2007, according to their website. She is "a military historian who has taught at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Yale, Georgetown, and American University." I always enjoyed her pieces in the Wall Street Journal.

So this 26 year old O´Bagy lady comes out of the woodwork and calls for the USA to effectively conduct military operations in Syria.

Who is this lady, is she even a US citizen? I smelled a whiff of Canada in her speaking style. She is obviously an agent for some foreign groups. It is up to the media to find all that out and report it.

The political mantra that came out of Chicago, but pretty much universally applies, is "we don´t want nobody nobody sent."

So, who sent O´Bagy? Who is her sponsor? Who vetted her? If she is "informing" US policy in Syria we are entitled to know.

She is credited with having studied at the American University in Cairo, but I can find no degree. Now she is reported to be in a joint MA/PhD program at Georgetown. But who are her parents? Where did she grow up? How did she come to study at the American University in Cairo? Is she even an American citizen? And is O´Bagy her real name, or is it something else trying to sound Western, like O´Bama would be? Is it really Obaji?

Press release last May:

Washington,DC–The Syrian Emergency Task Force is excited to announce the addition of Elizabeth O´Bagy as Political Director to our team in Washington, D.C. She joins us from the prestigious Institute for the Study of War, where she served as a Senior Research Analyst for Syrian politics and security.

"We are thrilled to have Elizabeth on board. Her skill set, expertise on the situation in Syria, and experience in Washington and abroad are invaluable to the work of the Syrian Emergency Task Force both domestically and in Syria," said SETF Board of Trustees Chairman Dr. Mohamed Kawam. (Snip)

The Syrian Emergency Task Force is a D.C. based non-profit organization created in March 2011 to convey the democratic aspirations of the Syrian people to Americans and the United States government. SETF also seeks to bring perpetrators in the Assad regime to justice through legal avenues in the United States. SETF provides policymakers with analysis and access to both the external and internal Syrian opposition.


She is being paid by them to promote Assad´s downfall.

Time for a complete RECALL Election for all House and Senate offices simultaneously!
And for the Presiduncy and Vice Presiduncy, of course... a national refer-end-dumb.

We must never wait any longer for Eastern-based Elites (all Elitists) to do

We need legal measures now...
to dump them all as we see fit by voting.
One of the Liberty Amendments or whatever you want to dub them...
Must be a citizen-generated immediate vote of NO Confidence in the Gummint...
And a complete RECALL Election to rid ourselves of this pile of worthless...

And why on earth is our government being advised by a 26 year old, especially one who says that despite the fact that she is the director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force, she is really only a consultant on humanitarian stuff with that group. Where did she come from? What is her education? Is she best buds with Huma?
How they must be laughing at this administration. And there are yet some who fear that if Congress nixes attacking Syria it will damage our reputation. That horse left the barn a long time ago. In fact, if Congress snubs Obama, it will be a good start at regaining our reputation.

27, I HAD to like your comment! That exact thought has been running through my mind too! So much so, I even went to youtube and looked the song up a couple of qweeks ago. I kid you not. I played it several times, because it just fit my mood ever so perefectly. Amazing you had the same thought and expressed it the same way!

Funny thing, a lot of the old anti-war songs of the 60´s fit so well now. Something´s happening here, what it is ain´t exactly clear. There´s a man with a gun over there, tellin´ me I got to beware...

O’Bagy is nothing but a modern-day Mildred Gillars (Axis Sally). What really scares me is the the our Secretary of State didn´t find out who she was before recommending her article publicly.

Lazy and inept. One of his aides probably handed him the article because it reflects the Administration´s naive and uninformed line about the rebels. He didn´t bother to find our who the author was - it was published in the NYT, after all - it must be the unvarnished truth.

ALL muslims are our enemies. There are no moderates. If there were they would work in their communities to suppress the murderous "radicals." Instead they just sit around silently waiting for the worldwide caliphate. The muslim religious/cultural/political/judicial/financial/social/militant system is all intertwined. A believer can´t just pick a portion to believe and ignore the rest and still be a "good" muslim. It ain´t a la carte.

This whole administration has bought into a finely-crafted muslim propaganda line. The religion of peace? Sure, there will be peace once we´re all under the thumb of a system dreamed up by a seventh-century pederast and warlord.

Now that I´m not on as much caffeine as I was while posting here yesterday...

I can recall I meant to include another comment about O-Bagy...
when she was just O-Baby, 26 years ago or so...

Should we not demand to see HER birfin´ certimicut... ?
Seems as though her bio, her history, is just a tad suspect...
What about her transcripts, her passport and visa records...
All those things we also needed about O-Bomber the NO-Bomber and never were provided.

Dealing with this Badmininstration and all its Bad Actors seems to be an exercise in
utter futility.

Propaganda experts like the Marxists. There was an article about a 1979 article about the commies aiming for the black folks after the Civil Rights struggle and had a coalition with Muslims and their money also in the mix. I can´t get it with an online search but it seems the conspiracy or secret combine is at work..

Muslims have been schooled here, know what makes us tick but do not want to emulate us and do know how to fool us.Our strengths like openness and trust or is it our projection of our own goodness looked at as being in everyone?

The Folly Of The Bundy Ranch Rebellion
The Federalist, by Grace Olmstead    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/18/2014 4:21:46 AM     Post Reply
It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

VA hospital backs down after slapping

The VA hospital that slapped a $525 federal fine on a man after he refilled his 89-cent drink without paying has backed down, choosing to issue a warning instead of a citation, a spokesperson for the facility said Thursday. Christopher T. Lewis, of North Charleston, was issued the $525 citation on Wednesday after he ignored signage indicating that there’s no such thing as a free lunch — or complimentary drink refills — at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston. Lewis, who is not a federal employee, told responding officers he had done the same thing “multiple times” before

For the last few weeks, Marisol Sanchez took pains to drive miles out of her way to avoid highways in the Kansas City area. On Thursday, she said she was breathing a little bit easier. Police Chief Darryl Forte announced Thursday night that a man has been taken into custody in connection with as many as 20 highway shootings in the Kansas City, Missouri, area, that began in early March. The suspect´s name won´t be released until charges have been filed. A news conference is scheduled for Friday. Residents greeted the news with relief. "It´s actually been really nerve-wracking," Sanchez told CNN affiliate KCTV.

White House Updating Online Privacy Policy
Associated Press, by Martha Mendoza    Original Article

A new Obama administration privacy policy released Friday explains how the government will gather the user data of online visitors to WhiteHouse.gov, mobile apps and social media sites, and it clarifies that online comments, whether tirades or tributes, are in the open domain. "Information you choose to share with the White House (directly and via third party sites) may be treated as public information," the new policy says. The Obama Administration also promises not to sell the data of online visitors. But it cannot make the same assurances for users who go to third-party White House sites on Facebook, Twitter or Google

‘Holy Grail’ of muscle

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

Are platinum ingots worth $3 billion sitting on the ocean floor, 50 miles northeast of Cape Cod? The United Kingdom--owners of a torpedoed WWII freighter said to have been carrying that cargo (plus jewels, gold and silver)--would like to know. So, too, would a group of U.S. investors who have sunk $8 million so far into the salvage effort, without having much to show for it. The Maine Office of Securities this week announced it will be seeking information from Maine residents who invested in—or were approached about investing in—Sea Hunters, L.P., and two other companies associated with Greg Brooks, the treasure

What Happened to the Tea Party?
The Federalist, by Robert Tracinski    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/17/2014 4:50:07 AM     Post Reply
It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear. The nurse handing over my garb calls it my "space suit." I can´t help but think that going into an Ebola

Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

Almost 300 people are missing off the coast of South Korea after a ferry there, carrying mostly schoolchildren, capsized and sank. About 164 people have been pulled from the wreckage, and the race to find survivors is well underway. No one ever expects a disaster, but this one has especially stunned people. Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell.

WASHINGTON — It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered. Mrs. Clinton played an energetic role in virtually every foreign policy issue of President Obama’s first term, advocating generally hawkish views internally while using her celebrity to try to restore America’s global standing after the hit it took during the George W. Bush administration. But her halting answer suggests a problem that Mrs. Clinton could confront as she

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
