Assad calm, comfortable and clearly
delusional in Fox News interview

Fox News, by Richard Grenell

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/19/2013 6:05:14 AM

In one of the most fascinating foreign policy interviews of all time, Fox News aired an unedited, lengthy and exclusive interview with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad Wednesday. The in-depth interview focused on diplomacy, chemical weapons, the death toll from the two-year-old war, the rebels’ goals, future governing and the region’s stability. Assad appeared calm, comfortable and yet delusional, talking in almost perfect English, as he consistently labeled the rebels as “terrorists,” claiming that 80 - 90% of the opposition fighting against his military was comprised of Al Qaeda supporters and other jihadists. In talking about the origins of the conflict, Assad failed to

What was Fox thinking? This was 45 minutes of barely decipherable blather from a brutal thug who has killed 100,000 people followed by the Fox News ´panel´ conceding that every word of it was a lie. What was their point?

He may have been lying, and then he may not have been lying. (Think about the rebels shooting prisoners in the back of the head.) But he made more sense than Obama ever has. Don´t kid yourself, Assad made Kucinich look like a schoolboy and I kept thinking that FOX reporter should grill our politicians like that. We only know what the MSM (and FOX) tells us. Assad seemed more honest forthright and sincere than Hillary, Bammy, Rice, Kerry and our pathetic team. He impressed me ... And I am not alone.

I have no idea who are the good guys or bad guys in the Middle East and I don´t trust one person in our government to know either. But I do know that in French and Arabic accented English, with a slight lisp, Assad is more coherent than our pResident. He´s not to be underestimated.

He struck me as a hybrid of Obama and Jodi Arias. His description of the war in his country was like Obama´s version of what is happening with Obamacare. Nonetheless, I suspect it was something of a win for Assad because of his demeanor.

Too bad our own president doesn´t receive the same level of journalistic scrutiny. And yeah, the accent was a bit of a challenge on the ears, but Assad´s command of French and English is much better than Obama´s command of English - just English.

I don´t blame Fox News for doing this interview. It gives the public a fuller view of one of the main players in this foreign policy game Obama´s playing - even if the guy lies about as much as our pres. does.

I thought Assad did not come across as a madman, and he answered tough questions. I wish Palkot would have asked him if his chemical weapons came from Iraq. I also wish Fox would have put subtitles at the bottom of the screen because there were many times I didn´t understand what Assad was saying, due to the lisp and accent.

Overall, this will make it harder for the regime to attack Assad, and that is why Assad sat for this interview.

Fox, et al, are delusional if they actually believe there aren´t foreign fighters in Syria. Indeed, this is mostly al Queda trying to take over yet another Arab country and further control the region.

If you think anything else, you´re not paying attention and have fallen for Iran´s (and its allies´) propaganda.

Sat aside the fact that the Qatar gas pipeline depends on an Assad ouster, and that the Saudis called for a Jihad against Syria for a stake in said pipeline. Also set aside that the muslim brotherhood see an opportunity to control another country with help from al qaeda. And Russia fears that pipeline will hurt their gas pipeline servicing europe.

What´s left is we have Russia, Turkey, Iran and Syria on one side, and the saudis, Qatar, the muslim brotherhood and al qaeda on the other. The question is should we even take sides ?

Delusional is the wrong word. He might be lying in some parts but I suspect he believes most of it AND WE DON`T KNOW HE´S WRONG, we just think he is. For example he says 90% of the rebels are foreign terrorists. We say 25%. Nobody knows, they don´t take a census in a war. If Assad is delusional then we´re delusional too. The war in Syria is just another battle between the Shi´ites and the Sunnis, two Arab tribes. It might have started because of protest movements over living conditions, wealth distribution etc. (e.g. the Arab Spring) but it rapidly devolved into the same old tribal conflict with Assad`s forces representing the Shi´ites and the Muslim Brotherhood and their terrorist outfit al Qaeda representing the Sunnis. It was never a war for freedom and democracy, that´s our delusion. Those things are meaningless to Islamists. Both sides are evil to the core from our point of view. We will eventually have to fight the winner.

A few things:

First: Assad came across as more coherent and credible than many in the Establishment elite, including the Emperor and John McCain.

Second: Whether he spoke the truth or not: the interview gave us a look into his thinking. Most of who have been branded "evil" - and I make no judgement here other than to acknowledge and mourn the 100,000 who have been killed - have rationalized that they are doing the "right thing" in their own mind. This is their delusion, and this is also the starting point where we must deal with them. Like Putin´s offer itself, it gives us moral leverage.

Third: This is simply not our fight. Assad is Putin´s client, and Putin has now assumed responsibility for any future use of these weapons by Assad. As to war crimes and punishment therefor: that is an issue for a tribunal at The Hague, not "international vigilante" justice from the US military.

Fourth: Assad, Putin, and the American People share a common enemy: radical Islamsits. While the "enemy of my enemy" is not necessarily my friend, he is definitely somebody I should try to work with. Witness Roosevelt and Stalin in WWII: for all that went wrong, they won a war that they easily could have lost. Whose side is our Emperor on, anyway?

Fifth: Our hands are not entirely "clean" in this matter. We were the ones who first armed and enabled Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, when we thought it was the "right thing to do" in order to contain Soviet expansion

Finally: Who are more "delusional" than the people who elected and continue to support Barack Hussein Obama, and others in the Establishment - of both parties - who continue to enable him and his destruction of America?

The Syrian rebels tortured soldiers, showed one eating the dead man´s heart. I would say say there are no good guys in this sectarian civil war, perhaps the rebels even worse. It would not surprise me if Assad lied. However, from those parts I saw, he certainly did not come across as delusional. Manipulative and clever yes, delusional no. I was surprised how well he spoke English and actually was more effective in making his case than Obama.

I´m late getting here, but why is Dennis Kucinich interviewing for FOX. He is an ultra leftist. Some of the points the interviewers were making haven´t been proved, merely alleged and the article wrongly states them as fact.

I´ve seen pictures in other articles of the rebels executing prisoners by shooting them through the head and I wonder why any leader would ignore that fact.

Kerry said today in an article that sarin gas was used and that had been verified by the UN. He somehow omitted they couldn´t prove which side used the gas. This is becoming a bait and switch operation to cover up scandals by the Obama Administration.

Why are we now moving a carrier into the area and sending in drones. I would trust a Bush to be circumspect in a situation like this, but if anyone trusts the people in his administration to do anything but lie, then good luck in this increasingly Nazi/Marxist nation.

Washington Post, by Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:08:09 PM     Post Reply
It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger does regret that Lincoln’s

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying.

His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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.

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
