President Obama needs to wake the hell up regarding the Muslim Brotherhood

Posted by: ST on November 29, 2012 at 4:05 pm » 11 Comments

No, I don’t expect any “waking up” to happen, as the left’s naive and dangerous tendency to treat established radical public figures and regimes - especially Islamists masquerading as “moderates” - as allies of America is well-documented.  But all the same, National Review editor Rich Lowry sounds alarms bells today in a blistering rebuke of the Obama administration’s fawning admiration of the Muslim Brotherhood, in particular, its President - Mohamed Morsi. Lowry writes: The […]

**Posted by Phineas In the wake of the presidential election earlier this month, a lot of people expressed their disappointment with the results by submitting petitions for secession at the White House web site.

**Posted by Phineas I truly thought this was satire when I read the headline, something Iowahawk would come up with. But, no. It’s real, and the author is serious: The book’s premise is God spoke to Professor [Barbara A. Thompson, Florida A&M], telling her that Apostle Barack Obama’s 155 speeches made between February 10, 2007 […]

 

Election Day: “Forth, and fear no darkness!”

Posted by: Phineas on November 6, 2012 at 11:00 am » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas Today is it, folks. The day of decision. After four years of being governed by the most left-wing administration in US History, as well as the most feckless since James Buchanan; after four years of suffering under incompetent boobs (save for their outstanding competence at corruption and cronyism) who treat the Constitution […]

That’s what you think, buddy (hat tip): President Obama again on Friday defended his administration’s handling of the attack that killed four Americans in Libya, and said he’s not holding back information ahead of Election Day. “The election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly […]

Oh, the suffering: Far from being a pauper, Sesame Workshop, the company that produces the beloved children’s television program that has become an unlikely point of partisan bickering in the presidential campaign, has put away more than $100 million in investments, including more than $20 million in hedge funds and $9.7 million in a private […]

From Rep. West’s Facebook page: In his speech today to the United Nations, President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on the 11th […]

**Posted by Phineas I really have nothing to add. Take it away, Pat! (Slight language warning.) President Obama, Secretary Clinton, and Senator Kerry — this is how it’s done. (Crossposted at Public Secrets)

 

LA Times op/ed writer argues “Innocence of Muslims” does not pass “free-speech test”

I rarely find myself at a loss for words, but this column pretty much gets me there. Excerpts: While many 1st Amendment scholars defend the right of the filmmakers to produce this film, arguing that the ensuing violence was not sufficiently imminent, I spoke to several experts who said the trailer may well fall outside […]
