FNC Exclusive: 8/16/2012 Classified Cable WARNED Benghazi Consulate Couldn't Withstand 'Coordinated Attack'..
No Mr President, this isn't going away anytime soon thanks to 'whistle blowers'.
Catherine Herridge at FOX
The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News.Update: Catherine Herridge and Rep Chaffetz on Greta:
Summarizing an Aug. 15 emergency meeting convened by the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Aug. 16 cable marked “SECRET” said that the State Department’s senior security officer, also known as the RSO, did not believe the consulate could be protected.
“RSO (Regional Security Officer) expressed concerns with the ability to defend Post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support, and the overall size of the compound,” the cable said.
According to a review of the cable addressed to the Office of the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Emergency Action Committee was also briefed "on the location of approximately ten Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi … these groups ran the spectrum from Islamist militias, such as the QRF Brigade and Ansar al-Sharia, to ‘Takfirist thugs.’” Each U.S. mission has a so-called Emergency Action Committee that is responsible for security measures and emergency planning
The details in the cable seemed to foreshadow the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. compound, which was a coordinated, commando-style assault using direct and indirect fire. Al Qaeda in North Africa and Ansar al-Sharia, both mentioned in the cable, have since been implicated in the consulate attack.
Women United Ad: When They Called; President Obama failed on Benghazi
Women United PAC ( www.womenunitedpac.com): "It is in times of crisis, usually after lives have been lost, when the paramount importance of national security is brought home to the American people. We know — as the mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of the men and women who volunteer to serve in harm's way — that their security and the security of our country depends on clear-eyed, unfaltering leadership. Today, we release "When They Called," as a demand for President Obama to come clean with the American people, and as a call for Americans to rise up and elect a new Commander in Chief."I'm sure Obama will come clean, after the election or something.

"And we’re tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind. We make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an American is in need all of us stand together providing the help that's necessary."
Obama also urged the Hurricane support team to "lean Forward," a transparent reference to his campaign slogan.
Meanwhile, the media thrashing Romney for putting his campaign on hold to collect non-perishable goods, money, and blood donations for Hurricane victims. MSNBC is appalled he would use the disaster relief for a political rally.

Spy vs. Spy
Georgia's CERT deliberately infected one of its own PCs with the malware, and planted a ZIP file named "Georgian-Nato Agreement" on its drive, hoping it would prove irresistible for the hacker.Hat Tip: Internet Anthropologist.
Sure enough the hacker stole the archive file and ran malware that Georgia CERT had planted inside, meaning that now investigators had control over the hacker's own computer.
This made it relative child's play to capture images of the suspect at work in front of his PC.

Shocking News! Facebook Censoring Political Speech Critical of Romney
Ward said Facebook pulled the re-posted meme down within 7 or 8 hours and suspended the SOS account for 24 hours.
In other words, Facebook put the Navy SEALS in timeout in order to shield Obama.
OK, so not shocking, but if they had pulled political speech critical of Romney that really really would be shocking.
They do that hoping that will "fix" the issue. But its not the issue. The real issue is the obvious liberal slant and lack of neutrality of Facebook's moderators.
This image should have never been removed, no one should have ever been suspended. Moderators should be suspended or fired. Otherwise this kind of political censor gaming will continue with Facebook only caving on posts that become known to the wider public with everyone else who is unfairly targeted left on their own.
*Personally I've no fear of liberals speaking their mind, obviously that's not the case on the left. They want to regulate and suppress the speech they fear.
I could really go into what a bunch of N0eo-Communist partisan Obama sucking douchebags Facebook are. Like telling me my 2200 followers didn't want to follow me. But what really pisses them off is they can't ban me from here. LOL
Suck it Facebook!
*The occasional proscribed foreign terrorist organization, yeah sure.
al-Shabaab Murders Warsame Shire Awale Over Criticism
Gunmen have assassinated a well-known comedian and musician who poked fun at al-Shabab fighters in the Somali capital, police and colleagues have said, the latest in a string of attacks against media and cultural figures.There is no doubt that Shabaab and those sympathetic to the terrorists murdered this man. Shabaab's press office are known liars, but its nice of al-Jazeera to slip in the savages denial so I don't have to go look for it.
Warsame Shire Awale, a famous composer who had worked with Somalia's national army band before joining Radio Kulmiye as a drama producer and comedian, was attacked by two armed men in Mogadishu, the capital, late on Monday.
"Gunmen killed him ... we are investigating the matter and the killers will be brought to justice," police chief Ahmed Hassan Malin told journalists.
"Two men armed with pistols shot and wounded him near his house in Waberi district, he died shortly after in hospital," said Abdi Mohamed Haji, a colleague at Radio Kulmiye.
Ali Mohamed Hussein, a senior al-Shabab official, said denied the group were responsible for the death, blaming instead government forces whom he said "kill people for their telephones and their petty belongings".
"This gentleman was an old man and we had no wish to kill him," Hussein said. "Blaming al-Shabab for this is a politically motivated issue."
FTO Jamat-ud-Dawah Wants To 'Help' Muslim #Sandy Victims
US Embassy in Islamabad: Thanks But NO Thanks
Documents found by US special forces at Osama bin Laden's final hideaway in Abbottabad, 22 miles north of Haripur, last year apparently linked Saeed with the al-Qaeda leader. The evidence was said to have shown that bin Laden played a key role in planning the 2008 Mumbai attacks.Dickhead founded terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba. They use the "dawah group" for their fundraising.
PC, by a Embassy staffer, in the first tweet regarding Saeed's offer to send volunteers, medicine and food to help Muslims affected by Sandy. "Volunteers? Just what the jihad ordered!

Contrast: Cindy Sheehan v. Charles Woods
Cindy Sheehan & Nancy Pelosi
During the 2004 presidential campaign, a media eager to deny George W. Bush a second term made Cindy Sheehan, who lost a son in Iraq, a national heroine and reported virtually her every word and move.
"Cindy Sheehan," gushed NBC News, "is single-handedly bringing the Iraq debate to Mr. Bush's doorstep." ...
A few conservative outlets have talked to him, notably Fox News, and he's had much to say about how and why his son was abandoned by the government he served.
Woods is especially angry "that apparently the White House situation room was watching our people die in real time, as this was happening."
If Cindy Sheehan had made such a comment, it would have led every evening newscast.

Disney's .... Star Wars VII?
I know you are tempted to ask yourself the age old question: If there really was some all-knowing, all-powerful God, then how could he let George Lucas ruin so many people's lives?
It's a legit point. But just remember: Absolute Evil is evidence of Absolute Good.
I present to you Absolute Evil:
The Walt Disney Company announced today it has agreed to acquire Lucasfilm and is planning Star Wars Episode 7 for 2015! In a conference call, Disney revealed that they are planning a new trilogy starting in 2015 with a new movie coming every other year.Yes, there is a God. I know this because George Lucas is His opposite corollary in the universe.
Paying Terrorists w/ Tax Dollars
If this report is true, then isn't it also true that US taxpayers are helping pay the salaries of convicted terrorists as well? The last time I checked, the US was also funding the PA, which in turn pays convicted terrorists a salary.
If the numbers are correct, then at today's exchange rate the US dollar equivalent is $3,146 a month to each terrorist. That's not an insignificant amount:
A report by watchdog organisation Palestinian Media Watch shows how Palestinian Authority legislation – introduced last year – sets out eligibility criteria for the payments, which a minister claimed were ‘social assistance’ for prisoners’ families.Your tax dollars at work. Thanks to 0000
This includes those serving multiple life sentences for acts of terrorism, such as the planning and directing of suicide bombings.
The minimum salary is £230 a month, for a prisoner starting his sentence, and increases to a maximum of £1,957 a month for those serving more than 30 years, many of whom have been convicted of shocking atrocities.
White House Refers Hurricane Victims To Internet
It's pretty important to keep up-to-date when the power goes out...
When President Barack Obama urged Americans under siege from Hurricane Sandy to stay inside and keep watch on ready.gov for the latest, he left out something pretty important — where to turn if the electricity goes out.
Despite the heightened expectation of widespread power and cable television failures, everyone from the president to local newscasters seem to expect the public to rely entirely on the Internet and their TVs for vital news and instructions. [...]
A call to FEMA’s news desk, however, found even they didn’t have any non-Internet information readily available beyond suggestions that people call 911 in an emergency. When asked where folks should turn for information if they have no power, a FEMA worker said, “Well, those people who have a laptop with a little battery life on it can try that way. Otherwise, you’re right.”
Yeah, I always keep a battery powered modem and ISP on hand for just such an emergency...
Landslide for Romney on the Horizon?
With only a week left before the official election day, I'm growing confident. Especially given that conventional wisdom suggested Obama would be way ahead among those who early voted -- yet Romney leads among these voters significantly.
If that holds up then prepare for more than a few blue states voting Romney next week.
"Osama bin Laden" Donates to Barack Obama
This isn't evidence that Obama supports al Qaeda. This is just more evidence that the Obama campaign is intentionally running a sloppy internet fundraising effort so that they can collect illegal contributions from overseas.
I think, though, that the limits of plausible deniability were stretched to the breaking point months ago when the campaign was first notified about the flaw in their system yet did nothing. The Romney campaign, on the other hand, uses industry standard verification for donors and therefore is much less susceptible to this sort of fraud.
I hate to link it, but I will make the rare exception in this case since I like Aaron Klein despite his affiliation with ... WND:
Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, “Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign.READ THE REST.
The “Bin Laden” donations, actually made by WND staff, included a listed occupation of “deceased terror chief” and a stated employer of “al-Qaida.”
“Bin Laden” is currently set up on the official campaign website to contribute more to Obama’s campaign. The name is also registered as a volunteer.
Since the “foreign” contribution was sent, “Bin Laden’s” email address has received several solicitations from Obama’s campaign asking for more donations.

Sandcrawler Hurricane Check in
Superstorm Sandy slammed into the New Jersey coastline with 80 mph winds Monday night and hurled an unprecedented 13-foot surge of seawater at New York City, flooding its tunnels, subway stations and the electrical system that powers Wall Street.We now go to a citizen journalist in the field.
The National Hurricane Center said that as of 5 a.m. Tuesday, the storm was moving westward across Pennsylvania and was centered about 90 miles west of Philadelphia.
At least 16 U.S. deaths were blamed on the storm.
Update: Pretty bad damage due to a fire in the Breezy Point area of Queens. New Jersey also took a beating. Lower Manhattan is soaked. Widespread power outages.
We're have faith those on the East Coast are tough and will recover quickly. Still we pray for all those who have lost life or property.
Update: Reports are not that 33 people were killed as a result of the storm. That's quite a toll considering all the warnings.

Compare: Air Force One Delivers Pizza & #Benghazi
Due to Hurricane Sandy, Obama cancelled scheduled campaign stops except for one. While in Florida, all he did was deliver pizzas, because he can.
Washington Times: Mr. Obama had already flown to Florida on Sunday night to hold campaign events on Monday but canceled them and flew back to the White House on Monday morning. The only campaigning he did was to deliver pizzas to a campaign office — prompting one reporter, Bloomberg's Hans Nichols, to tweet: "Obama's 12 hour trip to Orlando. ... Most expensive pizza delivery in history?"I was curious about the Tweet from Hans Nichols, so I checked it out and ran across this:
I suppose someone thinks it's funny to compare the Obama's administration screw up with the Benghazi terror attack to toppings on a pizza.
All I can do is shake my head in disgust.

#Sandy Video: Coast Guard Rescues 14, Searches for 2 from HMS Bounty
Via CTV News
PORTSMOUTH, Va. -- The U.S. Coast Guard rescued 14 members of a crew forced to abandon the Canadian-built tall ship HMS Bounty caught in Hurricane Sandy off the North Carolina coast and continued to search for two other crew members Monday.
The crew members were rescued by two helicopters around dawn after the ship started taking on water and they moved into two lifeboats, Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Brandyn Hill said. He had no immediate word on their conditions.
The historic-looking ship was built at Smith and Ruhland Shipyard in Lunenburg, N.S., for the 1962 film "Mutiny on the Bounty," which starred Marlin Brando, the HMS Bounty Organization website said. It was also used in the film "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest."
The rescue took place amid 5.5-metre waves.[More...]
The Coast Guard rescued 14 people from life rafts in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 90 miles southeast of Hatteras, N.C., Monday, Oct. 29, and two people remain missing. The first MH-60 Jayhawk crew arrived on scene at approximately 6:30 a.m. and hoisted five people into the aircraft, and a second helicopter arrived and rescued nine people and all were taken to Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C., with no life-threatening conditions.

IDF Discover 'Carrier Pigeons' On-board Ship To 'Gaza' (Estelle) Carried Photos Of Israeli Soldiers
I haven't posted on the latest leftist, Islamofacist flotilla "Estelle" not wanting to give them more publicity. That's all they seek in their never ending quest to break the blockade ie disinformation campaign against Israel.
The carrier pigeon thingy is worth posting on though:
When Israel Defense Forces soldiers nine days ago overtook the "Estelle" ship, which sought to breach Israel's naval blockade on Gaza, encountered a strange surprise. Between the crates containing toys and medications, they discovered a carrier pigeon.Tasers? Really?
According to IDF assessments, the pigeons carried digital tags, which were attached around their legs, containing photos of Israeli soldiers as they seized the ship. It is believed the photos were aimed for global media distribution.
Pro-Palestinian Israeli activist Yonatan Shapira, who was on board the ship, confirmed the IDF assessment, saying: "We tagged some of the carrier pigeons with digital memory cards containing photos showing IDF soldiers using taser guns."
The Israeli Navy soldiers operated as planned, and took every precaution necessary to ensure the safety of the passengers. After boarding the vessel by IDF soldiers, who did not need to use force, the passengers were attended to and offered food and beverages.Iran TV Channel's propaganda interview with one of the activists.

Prayers for Howie: Howie-aid 2012
UDATE: HOWIE IS BACK!
UDATE: HOWIE IS BACK!
Good morning Jawas!
I'm back! I'm not really sure what to say here so bear with me.
As you all know I've been out for a little longer than I expected. Some screenings had turned up some bad cells. So it became necessary to have a look see. That happens as you get older, there's always some doctor wanting to probe you. Anyway during the probe they found a tumor in my bladder about the size of a half dollar.
That's the bad news, the good news is they removed it. The pathology report is good. They believe they got it all and there is no evidence that it has spread past the lining into the muscle. Also the pathology says that for the most part it was "non aggressive" with only two very small areas showing any sign of a more aggressive and more dangerous cancer.
So the prognosis is good, no radiation or chemotherapy required at this time. I will require a followup surgery in January just to be sure they got everything this time and then yearly probings after that to watch for any recurrence.
I want to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and donations. It really means a lot to know how much you all care. The prayers really helped out as you can see from above.
Also I haven't gotten my part of the bill yet, but special thanks to all who donated. I really hate to ask but it sure will help me out. I wasn't really in a good position to pay for the large bills I'll be getting. So any and all donations are very much appreciated.
Special thanks to Rusty for keeping on me to have the procedure done and also to my heroine and inspiration Stable Hand the Brave. You guys rock.
And also thanks to all the the Docs and nurses and to Mrs. Howie for fixing me up.
I'm feeling pretty good considering, you know, how this surgery is done. Let me just say that surgery done through er your urethra. NOT A GOOD IDEA!
Also if it seems a little unfair that I've come through all this so well, with such a good prognosis not to mention all this love and support. Um yeah, not my doing at all.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.Again thanks to you all and its good to be back.
Abu Mansour Al-Amriki Still Not Dead
Abu Mansour Al-Amriki aka Omar Hammami released a second message on his Youtube channel while I was out.
On October 19, 2012, American Al-Shabab commander 'Omar Hammami (aka Abu Mansour Al-Amriki) released a three-minute video titled "An Urgent Message" on his YouTube channel. In it, Hammami discusses a serious schism between the Somali (i.e. ansar) and foreign (muhajirin) Al-Shabab fighters, over what appear to be strategic matters. Specifically, Hammami describes the clash as centering around the foreign fighters' desire to extend Al-Shabab operations beyond Somalia.The video is here, I've downloaded a copy but not put it on my channel yet. I'll check with a few sources to see what's up.
Hammami's message is addressed to the "leaders of jihad," i.e. the Al-Qaeda leadership, whom he asks to intervene in Al-Shabab's "bitter" situation in Somalia as an impartial arbiter, in order to achieve a sustainable resolution to the internal strife affecting the group.
At the end of his video message, Hammami notes that he has provided further details in a written letter; however, as of this writing, no written message appears on Hammami's YouTube channel or Twitter account.
Here are a few translated quotes Via MEMRI
.To the leaders of jihad and the virtuous scholars, [this is a message] from Abu Mansour Al-'Amriki...I beseech your good health of Allah...Update: Christof Putzel, whom Omar has taken a liking to, was also contacted and has this report.
"As to the content of this letter, I ask your forgiveness for its extreme brevity and the hastiness of its preparation; however, the difficult conditions, changing situations, and shortness of time play a major role [in the writing of this letter] and place a significant constraint upon us... I wished in this brief message only to allude to the bitter situation that currently engulfs the Somali muhajirin [i.e. foreign fighters], in order to bring the situation to your attention in hopes of a fundamental solution being achieved through your intervention as an impartial... judge.
"Generally, Somalia's history has witnessed some level of friction between the ansar [indigenous fighters] and the muhajirin – to put it another way, between the men who advocate global jihad and those who focus on the local [i.e. Somalia]. I have witnessed important events in this history during my contact with Al-Qaeda men, such as Abu Talha Al-Sudani, Abu 'Abdallah Al-Sudani, Abu Mansour Al-Bayhani, Saleh Al-Nabhan, and Abu Fadl Al-Qamari. And the conflict that took place between those men and the ansar leaders persists [today], after the imprisonment of some and the martyrdom of most, in the framework of the relations between the muhajirin and the ansar, both on the individual and group levels.
"We are concerned that soon, this conflict [between the ansar and muhajirin] will be decided in favor of those who wish for the companies of global jihad not to depart from the land of the two hijra [an epithet for the historical Abyssinia; here, Somalia in particular]... in order to devastate the interests of the unbelievers worldwide. Yet worse, we are worried that the end will have undesirable [consequences, including] injustice, imprisonment, and infighting. Therefore, [I ask you in the name of] Allah [to come to the aid of] your mujahideen brothers, and to rein in the internal strife before it is too late. Be aware that we have sought a means to communicate with you for an extended period of time, especially after the martyrdom of [Saleh] Al-Nabhan, however, many obstacles stood between us. [But] today, the opportunity [to communicate with you] has arrived.
"Do not abandon us, and make sure to contact your muhajirin brothers who rely on you greatly, and even some of the ansar [who rely on you as well]. [Further] details can be found in [my] written letter. We hope for [your] impartial and just [intervention]..."
Omar Hammami, the Alabama-born Jihadist who abandoned his roots to join an Islamic extremist group in Somalia, publicly spoke out against the beleaguered Al Shabaab militants on Friday and appealed to al-Qaida for help.On a side note my Tee Vee provider was carrying Current for a while. So I intended to check Christof out on one of the shows there. I wasn't able to catch him on and now its gone again from my list.
Hammami, 28, who goes by the name Abu Mansour Al Amriki (the American), posted a video of himself on YouTube condemning his former comrades in arms, accusing them of mistreating foreign recruits and ignoring the principles of their Islamic faith, focused only on retaining power for themselves.
In an exclusive interview with Current TV that Hammami gave from Somalia, he said that he knew the brash tactic could get him killed, but that he felt it was important to speak out about how Al Shabaab is “running a police state to keep those in power in power, as opposed to what is in the best interest of Islam.”

But Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta are in effect giving that power to the Committee on American Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America and other pressure groups when it comes to what and how our warfighters learn about Islamist terrorism
The pressure groups’ target since this spring has been Lt. Col. Matt Dooley, a West Point-trained, 20-year Army veteran who did six operational and combat tours in the Middle East (including Iraq) before coming to teach at the Joint Forces Staff College, where he was a graduate himself.
So even though JFSC administrators had vetted Dooley’s course and found nothing objectionable, Dempsey and Panetta told a press conference this May that it was “academically irresponsible” and ordered it suspended.Flash forward to what happened in Benghazi, on September 11th into the 12th of this year. The terror attack was initially called, by this administration, a spontaneous protest against a anti-Islam video--Isamophobia! Remember, Lt. Col. Matt Dooley was accused of teaching such.
A month later, Dempsey ordered Dooley fired “for cause” (knowing that as an officer in uniform he couldn’t publicly defend himself), and in August made sure his Officer Evaluation Report turned negative — a career-ender. [...]
Catherine Herridge: Two days after the Libya terror attack, representatives of the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center gave Capitol Hill briefings in which they said the evidence supported an Al Qaeda or Al Qaeda-affiliated attack, Fox News has learned.
The description of the attack by those in the Sept. 13 briefings stands in stark contrast to the now controversial briefing on Capitol Hill by CIA Director David Petraeus the following day -- and raises even more questions about why Petraeus described the attack as tied to a demonstration.
The Sept. 13 assessment was based on intercepts that included individuals, believed to have participated in the attack, who were celebratory -- as well as a claim of responsibility.
FBI and NCTC also briefed that there were a series of Al Qaeda training camps just outside of Benghazi, where the attack occurred and resulted in the deaths of four Americans. The area was described as a hotbed for the militant Ansar al-Sharia as well as Al Qaeda in North Africa.
Fox News is told there was no mention of a demonstration or any significant emphasis on the anti-Islam video that for days was cited by administration officials as a motivating factor.
The FBI and NCTC did not immediately respond to a request from Fox News for comment.
Fox News is told that the Petraeus briefing on Sept. 14 conflicted with that of the FBI and NCTC.
Just some of my thoughts on Muslim Brotherhood linked groups advising this administration on Islam, Islamophobia and blasphemy. The Mo video maker is still in jail. Hillary had told the father of fallen SEAL Ty Woods at Andrews AFB: "I will arrest and prosecute...... the maker of the video".

Obamabots Dumped Nails in Parking Lot at Racine TEA Party GOTV Rally
Via Mount Pleasant Patch:
The Tea Party faithful gathered Saturday for a loud and enthusiastic rally aimed at to getting out the vote on Nov. 6 and putting Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in the White House.h/t @UniqueName099
A crowd of around 1,000 grew to about 2,500 at the rally, which took place inside the old Sam's Club on Regency West Drive[...]
Before the event could get under way, though, organizers say a truck affixed with "Obama" stickers drove through the parking lot and dumped quantities of nails.
"We went outside and picked up what we could," said Lou D'Abbraccio, holding a cup filled with nails. "But this was just wrong."
Lora Halberstadt, a Tea party member, said the group did call the Racine Police Department to file a report.
Obamabots certainly have been busy in Wisconsin, for instance this thuggery:
A Gay GOP Worker Hospitalized in Politically Motivated Attack
Wisconsin Senator Neal Kedzie's Son Viciously Beaten Over His Romney/Ryan Yard Sign
Vandals Key "Obama" Into Cars
From CBS Los Angeles:
Someone keyed the word “Obama” into two cars and slashed seats in another outside a residence that had Mitt Romney campaign signs.
CBS2 and KCAL9 reporter Rob Schmitt spoke to Ken Slown, owner of one of the keyed vehicles.
Before you feel too outraged by this immature, stupid political hate crime, it gets better:
Slown actually supports President Obama!
He explained to Schmitt that he and his wife — both currently unemployed — are staying with her parents and it’s her parents who support Romney.
Lol! Now, I'm not suggesting the Slowns, both Obama supporters, deserve to have their vehicle vandalized. They don't. But as one who enjoys ironic humor, it is priceless that pro-Obama vandals would damage two vehicles in an anti-Romney attack and both happen to belong to Obama supporters!
Another delicious irony - the only two Obama supporters at the residence happen to be unemployed and living with their mother. So, I guess that "Hope & Change" isn't working out so well for them. One has to wonder why they would continue to support Obama, given their circumstances.

Indonesia Reports 11 Arrested, Planned Attack On US Embassy In Jakarta
After the Benghazi terror attack and this administrations response during and after, maybe they thought it would be a piece of cake to hit
Seriously, I'm glad these mujahidiots were stopped from carrying out their plans.
JAKARTA, Indonesia – Indonesia's anti-terror squad arrested 11 people suspected of planning a range of attacks on domestic and foreign targets including the U.S. Embassy and a site near the Australian Embassy, police said Saturday.A few days ago a major al-Qaeda terror plot was foiled in Jordan. Among the targets was the US Embassy in Amman.
The suspects were arrested in raids Friday and Saturday in four provinces, national police spokesman Maj. Gen. Suhardi Alius said.
He said the suspects belonged to a new group called the Harakah Sunni for Indonesian Society, or HASMI[...]
Alius said the group planned to target the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta and a plaza near the Australian Embassy and the local office of U.S. mining giant Freeport-McMoRan. It also planned to attack the U.S. Consulate in Surabaya and the headquarters of a special police force in Central Java, he said.
Alius said police are still investigating whether the group has ties with established terrorist organizations such as Jemaah Islamiyah. An investigator who spoke in condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to provide information to the media said HASMI's apparent leader, Abu Hanifah, was a Jemaah Islamiyah sympathizer.
Nothing to see here, move along
Obama Can't Bring Himself To Call Benghazi Attackers "Terrorists"
To Obama, the Benghazi victims - our heroes - are "these folks."
And their murderers, the terrorists, are "those folks."
“What happened in Benghazi is a tragedy. We’re investigating exactly what happened. I take full responsibility for that fact. I send these folks in harm’s way, I want to make sure they’re always safe and when that doesn't happen, that we figure out what happened and make sure that doesn't happen again. But my biggest priority now is bringing those folks to justice and I think the American people have seen that’s a commitment I'll always keep.”
Equality. They are all the same to Obama. Just one letter difference.
Audio below the fold.
Obama White House: Cold, Calculating And Bizarre
Charles Woods, the father of murdered Benghazi hero Tyrone Woods, had three encounters that seem to epitomize the Obama Administration.
First was his encounter with Barack Obama. Woods described Obama's demeanor at his son's funeral (all emphasis The Blaze):
“When he finally came over to where we were, I could tell that he was rather conflicted, a person who was not at peace with himself,” Woods said. “Shaking hands with him, quite frankly, was like shaking hands with a dead fish. His face was pointed towards me but he would not look me in the eye, his eyes were over my shoulder.”
“I could tell that he was not sorry,” he added. “He had no remorse."
Also at the funeral, Woods met with Hillary Clinton:
After apologizing for his loss, Woods said Clinton told him that the U.S. would “make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”
Obviously, Clinton was referring to the anti-Muslim YouTube video that the Obama administration spent nearly two weeks blaming for the attack. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice, Clinton and the president himself all blamed the video at various points. Beck pointed out that the White House is now trying to claim that it has always considered terrorism as the cause of the attack.
“When she said that, I could tell that she was not telling me the truth,” Woods said about Clinton.
Then came a bizarre, and highly inappropriate, comment from Vice President Biden:
Woods said Biden came over to his family and asked in a “loud and boisterous” voice, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”
“Are these the words of someone who is sorry?” said Woods.
No, they are not. They are words from an incompetent, uncaring Administration that knows it screwed up, but would never admit it.

Al Qaeda Support Rally in Central Russia
Here's an image of "the al Qaeda flag" in Kazan, Russia as reported by the Kavkaz Center. The important thing to remember about this is that Kazan is nowhere near the Caucuses mountains, home to "Islamic Emirate of the Caucuses".
Kazan is a major Russian city.
The bad news is that this is an indication that support for radical Islam is not a regionally limited phenomenon in Russia. The good news is that Vladimir Putin doesn't seem to be the type of quasi-dictator who will put up with this kind of thing for very long.
But the fact that the image is from Kazan and not Grozny is a surprise. Perhaps this will send a signal to Moscow that they can no longer expect to be able to feed radical Islamism with one hand when it is directed against the US and not expect it to bite the other hand domestically.
Thanks to 44.
Cornhole Watch: Dearbornstan Man Found Guilty of 'Honor Killing'
The PC crowd would call this pre-meditated murder of his step-daughter
A Muslim man from Minnesota, who police say followed his step-daughter to Michigan to kill her in an “Honor Killing,” has been found guilty by a jury.RIP dear child, RIP. Justice has been done.
Rahim Alfetlawi, 47, was convicted Friday of first-degree premeditated murder by a Macomb County Circuit Court jury. He is scheduled to be sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole on November 15th.
Alfetlawi was charged in the death of his 20-year-old stepdaughter, Jessica Mokdad, at her grandmother’s home in Warren, MI, in April 2011[...]
Prosecutors have said the motive was rooted in the fact that Alfetlawi had been sexually abusing Mokdad and that she might go public with the assaults

WASHINGTON (AP) - Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.Read the poll[PDF] and then ask yourself, how in the hell did the AP come up with that headline.
Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-election, the survey found, though the effects are mitigated by some Americans' more favorable views of blacks.

Lebanon: Muslim Cleric calls For Peace; Immediately Shot Dead
It was just before sunset. The area was extremely tense following news of the assassination in Beirut of Wissam al-Hassan, head of the Internal Security Forces’ information branch. Around 80 gunmen, supporters of the Future Movement or allied Islamist groups, gathered about 500 meters away from the headquarters of the Islamic Tawheed Movement. The gunmen prepared to attack the headquarters, as is common when the security and political situation in Lebanon and Tripoli reaches boiling point.
Sheikh Asmar approached the scene unaccompanied. He spoke to the men calmly, maintaining a demeanor familiar to anyone who had attended his Friday sermons or religious classes. “What you are doing is wrong,” he was heard telling them. “Who do you want to kill? Don’t you know that it is impermissible for a Muslim to shed another Muslim’s blood?”
The men did not reply, instead, they encircled him. It’s likely that Sheikh Asmar didn’t expect a response, given that the highly-charged political and sectarian climate deafens people to all voices of reason. He repeated his appeal, but was cut short by one of the gunmen who fired a bullet into his head, killing him instantly.

[Bumped]CIA DIA Denied Help for Consulate
Fallen SEALs Denied Requests For Military Back Up
[Bumped, scroll down for newer]
Developing... Update: FOX
Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that three urgent requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack nearly seven hours later were denied by officials in the CIA chain of command -- who also told the CIA operators to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.[Update within-an-update by Rusty] Did they stand down? No, they disobeyed orders. But by doing so they became heroes:
Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to "stand down."
Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.OMG, WTF?
At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing[see update on laser below fold..ed] and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours -- enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators
Update II: Video added [Prof Jacobson: "No, the CIA is not going to take the fall for Obama on Libya-gate"]
Update III: Ty Woods father was on the phone with Megyn Kelly: "I only wish those in the White House who made the call not to help my son would have had the same moral courage as my son displayed" [Update: video below of the interview]
“I Do Not Appreciate Cowardice, And I Do Not Appreciate Lies”: Father of Former Navy SEAL Killed in Libya Attack Reacts to Learning His Son Disobeyed Orders to Save Fellow Americans"
Note: Meghn Kelly just noted a correction from the interview. Former SEAL Doherty flew in from Tripoli with the rapid response team and was delayed at the Benghazi airport because of arguments among the Libya military of some sort as to who would escort them.
God Bless this man, how heartbreaking this news must be for him let alone others that are just know learning this. Obamamedia will likely not be interested in this.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the heroes families.
At Blackflag a retired Delta operator had this to say to about the 'laser on target'
One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not "paint" a target until the weapons system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station.Also, this via The Right Scoop:
Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area.
Where's The Outrage?
“I was getting ready for work and there was a knock at the door,” Wood emailed The Daily Caller late Wednesday. “I opened it, and a guy wrapped a ligature around my neck, slammed my head into the doorway, and smashed my face into a mirror, telling me ‘You should have kept your [f*******] mouth shut.’”
“He then kidney-punched me, while at the same time saying I was ‘warned,’ and continued to beat me,” he added.
Wood told The Daily Caller that vandalism preceding the assault, along with his attacker’s statements during the incident, suggested his sexual orientation and his politics each played a role.
Wood said his attacker’s reference to a warning likely pointed to graffiti he found painted on his car last week. The vandalism included the phrases “house trained republican faggot,” “traitor,” and “ur like a jew 4 hitler.”
It seems a hate crime is only a hate crime if perpetrated by a conservative against a liberal. The hypocrisy of the left is astounding.
God Hates Obama
But God has a sense of humor. After teasing the liberals with hurricane Isaac, He sent another hurricane, Sandy, to successfully close down an Obama fundraiser. Damn, and Barack needed those hundreds of dollars too!
While I laugh at Obama's fundraiser being closed down, I am happy no one has yet been injured by the hurricane. I've been through many and it is a very frightening experience. I hope no one is hurt and damages are minimal.
UPDATE: When I wrote the above I had Florida in mind. But as pointed out in comments, there have been some unfortunate deaths in the Caribbean.
PS: I am joking about God hating Obama. Just poking fun at the liberals who prayed hurricane Isaac would wipe out the GOP at the convention a couple of months ago.

NC Moosehead Bar & Grill: New Low From Panther Fans To Marine Wounded in Afghanistan: 'Stop Using Your Wheelchair As A Crutch'..
Why is this in a UK paper and not here? If it is then excuse my PO'd dismay at our MFM.
A U.S. Marine who lost both his legs in Afghanistan was forced to leave a Charlotte restaurant with his family after local football fans hurled vile abuse at them for wearing Dallas Cowboys jerseys.Carnes and his family were asked to leave the restaurant to diffuse the situation.
Marine Garrett Carnes, of Mooresville, North Carolina attended Sunday’s Carolina Panthers’ game against the Cowboys with his wife Courtney, their parents, and friends Brett and Nicole Coburn.
After the game, which the Cowboys won 19-14, the group stopped at the Moosehead Grill for dinner. Several members of the party, including Garrett Carnes, were proudly wearing their Dallas Cowboys jerseys.
Carnes, who is still undergoing treatment for his wounds at a Washington-area hospital, told them he was a veteran who had lost his legs in Afghanistan.
The situation quickly deteriorated and according to witnesses the two parties almost came to blows after one of the Panthers fans approached Carnes in a threatening manner.
Panther fans were clearly out of line, big time. Beside, the restaurant staff making them leave? This is one restaurant I don't care to visit, ever.
Update: The owner of the restaurant is "heartbroken". OK, why was the Marine and his family asked to leave then? Pfffft, spare me.
No Matter Who Wins, The Islamist Threat Won't Go Away
An excellent article by Michael Totten who reminds us all that no matter who is President, the threat of those wishing to unite mosque and state will remain:
Everything the United States does is viewed with suspicion across the political spectrum. Gamal Abdel Gawad Soltan, the director of Egypt's Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, admitted as much to me in Cairo last summer when I asked him about NATO's war against Gadhafi in Libya. "There is a general sympathy with the Libyan people," he said, "but also concern about the NATO intervention. The fact that the rebels in Libya are supported by NATO is why many people here are somewhat restrained from voicing support for the rebels." When I asked him what Egyptians would think if the U.S. sat the war out, he said, "They would criticize NATO for not helping. It's a lose-lose situation for you."Read the whole thing.
So we're damned if we do and we're damned if we don't. And not just on Libya. An enormous swath of the Arab world supported the Iraqi insurgency after an American-led coalition overthrew Saddam Hussein. Thousands of non-Iraqi Arabs even showed up to fight. Yet today the U.S. is roundly criticized all over the region for not taking Assad out in Syria.
I don't blame Obama for screwing up the Middle East. The place was screwed up before and so shall forever remain. What I really blame Obama for is that his first instincts are always to blame America first.
If that's your default position, then you shouldn't be the President.
But I have fairly low expectations for the Romney Administration when it comes to fixing the Middle East. The best we can hope for is moral clarity on who the bad guys are, and prayers that President Romney will come to the conclusion that the rest of us have and just give up.
Lest this be taken as somehow advocating an abandonment of Israel, let me remind you what American intervention has gotten Israel in the past: stopping them from complete victory over their enemies.
What Israel needs is moral support. Romney will give them that. What they don't need is an "ally" telling them to withdraw every time they have their enemies on the ropes, and which insists they can't bomb the country threatening their annihilation should it ever get the bomb.

#Benghazi: Fallen SEAL's Father: Hillary Told Me 'We're Going to Arrest & Prosecute ... The Man That Made The Mo Video' At Funeral
That burned me when I heard Hillary say that, standing in front of the coffins of the fallen. Repeating that phony story to him and knowing damn well it wasn't the video that caused the attack. CYA thy name is the Obama administration.
Charles Woods, the father of former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was killed in Benghazi on September 11th, called into the Lars Larson show yesterday. The call was not scheduled; Mr. Woods indicated that he does not usually call into radio programs. But in light of recent news reports about what happened on the ground in Benghazi, and the discovery that the administration monitored events real time, Tyrone's father says he felt compelled to speak out.[...]Wow, just wow:
The show ended with a chilling statement from Ty's father:We do need to find out who it was that gave the order not to protect our military people there, and whoever it is needs to have the guts to stand up and say, "I was the one that gave the order not to send troops to protect," because they could have, the military would have wanted to. Someone had to have said don't rescue them.
My heart goes out to this man and the other families of the fallen. They, more than anyone, deserve the truth instead of the spin coming from the Obama administration, fed to the Obamamedia, ............... because of the upcoming election.
Update: Ace has the flaming skull out, so yeah, this is important, damn straight it is important. The maker of the video wasn't arrested for a parole violation, he was arrested because of the video. He is their scapegoat...
Update: Mr Woods called into the Glenn Beck program today and said Biden told him, at Edwards AFB, "Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls"? “Are these the words of someone who is sorry?” said Mr Woods.

Obama Campaign Intentionally Taking Illegal Foreign Contributions
China Responds, Blocks Obama.com
At some point, poor policing crosses over into negligence and then into out-and-out law breaking. Given that the Obama campaign has been well aware of the flaws in their online contribution campaign for months now and yet have not fixed the problem, I think we can safely say that we have crossed that particular Rubicon:
It’s been reported that Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is knowingly accepting donations from non-U.S. citizens, and PJ Media can confirm that it’s not only possible, but very easy, for foreign citizens to make contributions. I’ve been able to donate $25 to the Obama campaign in three separate transactions, despite being a lifelong British citizen resident in the UK. What’s more, two of my donations were processed despite the Obama campaign noting that I had provided a non-U.S. address, and despite my failure to provide proof of American citizenship when asked to do so.READ THE REST.
As a control, he tried to do the same thing with the Romney campaign but it didn't work.
The Chinese government has blocked access to a Web site used as a conduit for donations to President Obama’s re-election, The Post has learned.Are we still pretending Obama's campaign doesn't know where a lot of their money is coming from? When the Chinese government knows of the problem and takes action, but the Obama campaign pretends it's not an issue then ... Houston, we have a problem.
The action comes following a report in Sunday’s Post that the Obama.com site had been registered to Robert Roche, an Obama campaign bundler who lives and works in China.
An analysis by the Government Accountability Institute found that Obama.com gets almost half its traffic from foreign computer addresses.
One Benghazi Suspect Arrested, Another Killed in Cairo
A Tunis judge has charged a Tunisian man arrested in Turkey for being part of a terror cell, his lawyer said on Thursday, amid reports he is linked to last month's attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.Better suspect:
A man suspected of involvement in an attack on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi last month has been killed in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, officials say.To be honest, the killing of the suspect isn't good news given that our own Administration has been far less than forthcoming on the attack and the only way to really get to the bottom of it now seems to be in the less than capable hands of Arab Spring countries.
The man was killed after an exchange of fire with security services in the Cairo suburb of Madinet Nasr.
Authorities named the man only as Hazem.
American Taliban Preaching Terrorism Against Catholics
The American Taliban? You mean Tea-Partiers, right? Ummm, not exactly:
JZ Knight’s contributions to Democrat at all levels total more than $120,000 for the current election cycle.That's Pat Robertson she's meeting in this pic, right?
“F— you, you Catholics!” Knight bellows over cheers from her audience.
“We will come on you in a terror,” Knight growls in another cut. “We will bring… St. Peter’s temple down and we will swallow it in the sea.”
I doubt we'll here any more about this since it goes against the narrative, but Catholic voters might be well served if you forwarded it to them.
And no, this doesn't mean Obama hates Catholics. But imagine if a Republican donor said the same or similar things. Not only would there be demands that the candidate give back the money, but there would be insinuation after insinuation that the candidate really hates Catholics, but just can't say it out loud.
Somali Taliban Stones Girl to Death for Adultery
I'd say something sarcastic about gender equity -- since the boy in the relationship got 100 lashes -- but really there's nothing funny about a girl in her early teens being murdered for having sex with someone who isn't her husband:
Al Shabaab has stoned a early teen girl to death for alleged (sin) adultery in Lower Shabelle region in southern Somalia, witnesses said on Wednesday. Hundreds of villagers can be seen standing around as the early teen girl is buried up to her waist in a four foot hole in the ground .... the crowd begins to throw rocks at her head and body, she collapses to the ground, covered in bloodThere's a picture at the link if you can stomach it. But all liberals who think sharia is really no different than Western secular law ought to be forced to view it.
Democratic Congressman's Son Encourages Voter Fraud
Update: Rep Moran's 'Field Director' Son Resigns
I was just saying earlier this morning that I witnessed what I think was attempted voter fraud. I also noted that the attempt failed because early voters in my state have to show some sort of photo ID. But also that the attempt might have worked on election day because photo ID is not required.
This is worse. It shows the son of Democratic Congressman Jim Moran, Pat, not only encouraging voter fraud but promising DNC resources to help perpetuate it.
They say that they are against voter ID laws are there to protect voting rights. They're lying. They're against voter ID laws because it makes it harder for them to commit fraud.
Watch at least the first 8 or so minutes. The rest of it is the raw unedited footage. A preemptive strike against the Left's accusations of taking the words out of context.

Four military planes attacked an arms factory in Khartoum where there was a huge fire overnight, a Sudanese minister said on Wednesday, blaming Israel for the air strike.Word is Iran, Syria, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas, al-Qaeda and insert other terror groups here are really burned out over this.
"We think Israel did the bombing," Culture and Information Minister Ahmed

"We reserve the right to react at a place and time we choose,” he said, adding that evidence pointing to Israel was found among remnants of the explosives.
The explosion at the military factory in Sudan's capital before dawn Wednesday sent detonating ammunition flying through the air, causing panic among residents, the official news agency and local media reports said.
Officials said there were no reports of deaths, although some residents had suffered from smoke inhalation.[More...]
Potential Voter Fraud Alert: Who's Watching the Polls, Who's Watching the Watchers?
I just voted early, which may seem hypocritical since I don't support the idea of early voting. But who stands on principle when it's just so damn convenient?
So I voted early so I wouldn't have to wait in line on election day. But there was a line. I was surprised. It was the first time I'd seen this many people voting early. It wasn't a lot of people, but in the past when I voted early it was me and maybe one other person tops. This time there were four or five voting machines, each of them occupied, and then a line four or five deep.
I was about to leave when the guy in front of me said that the line was moving pretty fast. So I waited. And waited some more. The people at the voting machines finished and left, but the line wasn't moving. Something was wrong. The poll worker was spending an awful long time helping the person at the front of the line. This went on for maybe five minutes, which seems like an eternity when you're trying to get in, get out, and get to work.
Finally I heard her say to the person, "It says here that you are ineligible to vote since you've voted at two different locations in federal elections."
I don't think she was saying that the person attempting to cast their ballot had voted twice, just that over the past two elections she'd voted in two different precincts and that she hadn't re-registered if she'd moved. But I don't know what she meant for certain. For all I know, the person in question had voted twice. I really don't know.
But it gets better. It happened again to the next person in line. This time, the poll worker said the there was no record of her registering to vote.
What are the odds that of the five people left in the room trying to vote that two of them were ineligible? Seems pretty low to me.
But isn't this a validation that our voting laws work? That people trying to vote who aren't eligible got caught and were prevented?
You see, in my state -- and I assume in many other states -- those who vote early have to show either their voter registration card or photo ID. Also, they cannot cast a provisional ballot.
But when they vote on election day, there is no requirement to show ID. Instead, all that is required is that they sign their name on the election roll ledger. Any one can sign any name they want. No ID required.
Moreover, the place where early voting takes place is in the County Courthouse and manned by professional staff. The other voting precincts are in various churches and schools and manned by unpaid volunteers. Which means that they are much less knowledgeable about voting laws and much more likely to make errors. I once had one of them try and discourage me from voting Republican when I asked for the Republican ballot in a primary.
This was the poll worker. The person in charge of enforcing the law, breaking the law.
Now, I know this isn't a scientifically representative sample of the electorate .... but 2/5 who were prevented from voting today but who wouldn't have been prevented from voting election day? You don't need a Ph.D. to figure out that's a big number that could lead to fraud on a massive scale.
Even if it leads to fraud on a minor scale, in a close election it could mean the difference between one candidate winning over another.
And yet the Democratic party opposes voter ID laws and says they are unnecessary.
I'm pretty sure that both of these individuals who were prevented from voting were going to vote Democratic. Call it a 90% "guess".
I hope the Republican Party has a lot of poll watchers this election cycle. Because if what I witnessed carries over into swing states, then we are going to need a lot of them.
Benghazi Terror Attack: Emails To White House Show There Was NO Reference To Mohammed Video
Via Jim Hoft:
** White House officials watched the terror strike live by unmanned Predator drone
** White House knew Al-Qaeda linked group was behind terror strike at 6:07 PM EST on 9-11
** US Troops in Italy were not called in to rescue officials
** 200 attacks in Benghazi before 9-11
** The Obama Administration was concerned using troops from Italy would violate Libyan sovereignty
The US had troops in Sigonella, Italy – about an hour away.[More...]
The White House continues the spin today by scoffing at these emails. In other words, nothing to see here, move along

'Within Hours' State Dept Emails Show Obama Administration Knew Benghazi Attack Was Claimed By Al Qaeda Linked Terror Group
Mohammed video? What Mohammed video?
A series of internal State Department emails obtained by Fox News shows some some of the initial assessments of last month's deadly consulate attack in Libya, including one email within hours of the attack that noted that the group Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility.Obama and his administration f*cked this up and lied to us and the damn MFM helped him do it.
Ansar al Sharia has been declared by the State Department to be a an Al Qaeda-affiliated group. A member of the group suspected of participating in the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi has been arrested and is being held in Tunisia.
The emails obtained by Fox News were sent by the State Department to a variety of national security platforms, whose addresses have been redacted, including the White House Situation Room, the Pentagon, the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence.
Fox News was told that an estimated 300 to 400 national security figures received these emails in real time almost as the raid was playing out and concluding. People who received these emails work directly under the nation’s top national security, military and diplomatic officials, Fox News was told.

A trio of British Muslims accused of plotting terror attacks more devastating than the 7/7 atrocities planned to attach butchers' knives to the front of a truck before driving it into a crowd of people, a court heard.Thanks to someone.
Inspired by a [the slain American Samir Khan's al Qaeda "Inspire" magazine], the alleged would-be terrorists Irfan Naseer, 31, Irfan Khalid, 27 and Ashik Ali, 27, discussed turning a truck into 'The Ultimate Mowing Machine' by fixing metal plates and knives to the front to cause maximum damage to victims in its path.
The trio, from Birmingham, talked of using the deadly vehicle to plough into crowded areas and slash 'kuffars', or non-believers, Woolwich Crown Court was told.

Registered Republicans Targeted In Voter Scam
Voters are getting letters that look like they are from local elections offices, questioning their citizenship. But Local 6 has learned the letters are fake, and they are going out across Central Florida and other parts of the state.
Officials said the voters who have received the letters thus far are white, registered Republicans who consistently vote in elections. [...]
Inside the letter is the resident's supervisor of election's name, the resident's name and address, and a warning that doubts the voter's citizenship, saying the resident is not eligible to vote unless a letter is returned in an enclosed form within 15 days.
Don't worry, I'm sure the UN Election Monitors and Eric Holder's Department of Justice are investigating...

City of Milwaukee Disregarded Ineligible Voter List on First Day of Early Voting
Felons voting, again?
State Election Watchdogs at the GAB Yet to Comment
[MILWAUKEE...] During early voting on Monday, Milwaukee election officials did not check newly registered voters against a department of corrections list of felons ineligible voters, the MacIver News Service has learned.
Moreover, the problem may be more widespread.
According to Wisconsin Statutes:The board shall provide to each municipal clerk a list prepared for use at each municipal clerk's office showing the name and address of each person whose name appears on the list provided by the department of corrections under s. 301.03 (20m) as ineligible to vote on the date of the election, whose address is located in the municipality, and whose name does not appear on the registration list for that municipality.
"I alerted officials at the Ziedler building that they were not in compliance with state law at 9:40am on Monday," an Milwaukee-based election observer told MNS. "They told me they never received a list from the GAB and appeared to make no effort to find one."Where are the UN election monitors when you need them? /sarc
The Republican Party of Wisconsin has filed an open records request to provide the names of all individuals who have cast absentee ballots in the City of Milwaukee for the November 6th general election.
“Outside City Hall yesterday, Mayor Barrett was posing for pictures with actress Ashley Judd. But inside, the City of Milwaukee was failing to use the state’s ineligible voter list for individuals registering and casting absentee ballots,” stated Nathan Conrad Communications Director for the Republican Party of Wisconsin.
“Mayor Barrett and his hand-picked director of the City of Milwaukee Election Commission, Neil Albrecht, have clearly dropped the ball. It is incumbent upon both Mr. Albrecht and Mayor Barrett to begin following standard procedures and protecting the integrity of the election process.
3rd Debate: Did Obama Slam The Horse Soldiers of 9/11?
In Obama's attempt to paint Romney as old and out of touch he showed just how out of touch he is with military tech.
When Romneyaccused the president of cutting back on military spending by noting the U.S. Navy had fewer ships today than in World War I, Obama shot back: "Well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military's changed."The DNC in return shows how out of touch they are by being so proud of Obama's out of touchiness with this video:
He also said in an almost derisive tone, "We also have things called aircraft carriers that planes land on and
submarines[no ABC he said "ships"] that go under water."
A statue of a member of the U.S. Special Forces on horseback was just unveiled at Ground Zero in New York City. When our Special Forces invaded Afghanistan post-9/11, many did so on horseback. I personally remember sitting for a lecture in Austin, TX in 2005, given by a member of one of the first Special Forces teams to arrive in Afghanistan. He talked at length about their reliance upon horses.Our Marines still train with bayonets
While the Army discontinued traditional bayonet training in 2010, the USMC still trains Marines with bayonets and issues them as standard equipment. The Army has also begun training soldiers in a different style of bayonet use--not affixed to the end of a rifle but as a secondary melee weapon.Mr President, you FAILED at honoring our military with those comments.

Wisconsin Senator Neal Kedzie's Son Viciously Beaten Over His Romney/Ryan Yard Sign
Update: More at NBC15
.....Fortunately, an alert neighbor heard the commotion, scared the individuals away, and called the police.
[Sen Kedzie]My wife and I were awakened by a telephone call from Sean’s roommate that Sean had been taken by ambulance to Fort Atkinson Memorial Hospital.
Sean was treated for his injuries and released from the hospital the same day.
As this was a private family matter, we chose not to remark publicly about it and allow law enforcement to do their job. But we understand these types of incidents will eventually become public and questions will arise, particularly in my position as a state legislator.
Sean is still recovering from the injuries he sustained as a result of this beating, and we are confident he will make a full recovery.
But obviously, as parents, we are shaken by this event and very troubled it was apparently initiated and motivated for political reasons.

Vodka For Votes: Arkansas Dem Rep Hudson Hallum, Operatives Await Sentencing In Fraud Scheme
The plan: offering cheap vodka ... for votes.Meanwhile, the UN is going to be monitoring our elections looking for voter suppression by "conservative groups
It was part of a scheme to steal an election in eastern Arkansas that included absentee ballot fraud and buying votes with money, food and even alcohol.
"I guess I always knew all along it was wrong, but I really didn't think it was that big a deal," explained former Democratic state Rep. Hudson Hallum. "I always heard ... that's what everybody did."
Hallum and three others have pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to commit election fraud during the special election that put him in the Arkansas House of Representatives in 2011. A total of nine people have been charged by federal and state authorities in connection with the plan.
According to the indictment filed by the U.S. attorney's office in Little Rock, Hallum told co-defendant Phillip Wayne Cater, a West Memphis, Arkansas City Councilman, "We need to use that black limo and buy a couple of cases of some cheap vodka and whiskey to get people to vote."[...]
The conspirators did not end up following through with the plan to trade vodka, but did allegedly trade money and food, determining that "$20 to $40 was too much to pay for one vote ... but was acceptable to pay for the votes of multiple members of a household." In addition to offering goods and money in exchange for votes, the indictment alleges that Hallum and his father even opened unsealed absentee ballots -- and the ones that were cast in favor of his opponent, Kim Felker, were "destroyed" so they wouldn't count.
Hallum received a lopsided landslide in the absentee ballot count, garnering 394 votes to Felker's 67.
"I was horrified," Felker told Fox News about the vodka-for-votes scheme, as she sat on her porch in Crawfordsville, Ark. "This is not a third-world country, this is east Arkansas, and this is something you hear of in another part of the world. ... The people in our district have been duped, really. And we are the ones who are suffering."[Continue reading]
Reporters 'Not Allowed' To Talk To Voters At Biden Event

Cornhole Watch: Terror Trial Begins in Britain
London (CNN) -- Three men accused of plotting a suicide bombing campaign in Britain went on trial Monday.h/t Shelle
If authorities hadn't foiled the plan, the scale of the terrorist attack might have been bigger than the 2005 London bombings that killed more than 50 people, prosecutor Brian Altman said. One of the alleged jihadists described the plot as "another 9/11," he said.
Irfan Naseer, Irfan Khalid and Ashik Ali [pictured above...ed] were arrested in September 2011 in what authorities called a major operation.
Altman told jurors that the men planned to use up to eight bombs inside rucksacks in suicide attacks aimed at causing mass casualties.
In the house where they allegedly researched and experimented with bombs, investigators found an audio recording of slain al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, Altman said.
If they were found guilty of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts, they would face maximum sentences of life in prison. All three men deny the charges.[More..]

Obama Administration Outs Libyan Rights Activist Then Blames House Oversight Committee
(Thanks to Gateway Pundit)
In this case, a women's rights activist working with U.S. in Libya was exposed by the U.S. State Department. Not only was she featured in a video from March 2012 wearing a State Department identification badge, she was hosted by the State Department for the International Visitor Program of the World Affairs Council in Seattle, Washington, in December 2011.
But the Obama Administration once again tries to pass blame for policy failures. This past weekend, the Obama campaign placed blame for exposing the activist on House Oversight Committee and Government Reform chairman Darrell Issa.
Issa issued this statement in response:
“The Libyan rights activist who was highlighted by the Obama administration in news accounts as having not been, ‘publicly associated with the U.S.’ until the Oversight Committee released documents had actually been brought to the U.S. in December 2011 by the State Department and her trip is highlighted on the Internet. President Obama should be ashamed of yet another example where his administration has been caught trying to mislead the American people about what happened in Libya.”
“Obama Administration officials and their surrogates are clearly reeling from revelations about how the situation in Benghazi was mishandled and are falsely politicizing the issue in a last ditch effort to save President Obama’s reelection effort. To see such prominent officials as Sen. John Kerry, Sen. Dick Durbin, Sen. Carl Levin, Rahm Emanuel, and Obama Senior Advisor David Axelrod paraded out over to weekend to make false charges about the Oversight Committee putting Libyans in danger only shows their desperation to hide the truth. As the Committee had previously indicated, the State Department has had these documents for two weeks but never contacted the committee about making specific redactions. The Libyans noted in these documents worked in positions where their interactions with westerners would not be surprising.”
The Obama Administration has failed on so many levels, it would be laughable if it weren't so dangerous to our nation.

A Red Carpet for Islamist Radicals at the White House
And why it matters:
A year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House, meeting with top administration officials.The report included the Muslim Public Affairs Council's (MPAC) influence on this administrations policy. The name Haris Tarin, MPAC's Washington director, stood out to me:
Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations.
The IPT made the discovery combing through millions of White House visitor log entries. IPT compared the visitors' names with lists of known radical Islamists. Among the visitors were officials representing groups which have:
~Been designated by the Department of Justice as unindicted co-conspirators in terrorist trials; Extolled Islamic terrorist groups including Hamas and Hizballah;
~Obstructed terrorist investigations by instructing their followers not to cooperate with law enforcement;
~Promoted the incendiary conspiratorial allegation that the United States is engaged in a "war against Islam"— a leading tool in recruiting Muslims to carry out acts of terror;
~Repeatedly claimed that many of the Islamic terrorists convicted since 9-11 were framed by the U.S government as part of an anti-Muslim profiling campaign.
MPAC's Influence on PolicyToday, along with Ambassador Susan Cook and others, the US Institute for Peace is hosting a webcast about "religious tolerance" aka Islam. Haris Tarin is one of the panelists
The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) has secured the closest working relationship with the Obama White House despite a record of anti-Semitism, whitewashing the terrorist threat and hostility toward law enforcement. Fifteen MPAC officials have been welcomed by the White House. Executive Director Salam al-Marayati enjoyed at least six White House visits between September 2009 and July 2011, mostly involving meetings with Monteiro. Alejandro Beutel, who was MPAC's government liaison until July 2012, had 10 White House visits between July 2010 and May 2012.
MPAC's Washington director Haris Tarin made 24 trips to the White House between December 2009 and March 2012. Those meetings often were intimate in nature, involving a handful of people at most.[More..]

Religion, Violence, and Coexistence

The Internet release of a trailer for the anti-Islam film "The Innocence of Muslims" recently sparked protests around the world, some of which turned violent. These events serve as a stark reminder of the relationship between freedom of expression[1st Amendment...ed], religious coexistence, religious freedom, violence and security[...]

Best Endorsement For Mitt Romney
The UN is warning Americans not to elect Mitt Romney. That's good enough reason for me to vote for him.
The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has warned Americans not to elect Republican Mitt Romney in next month’s presidential election, saying that doing so would be “a democratic mandate for torture.”
The UN’s Ben Emmerson was referring to Romney’s refusal to rule out the use of waterboarding in interrogating terror detainees, a practice that President Barack Obama has ended. [...]
U.S. intelligence services were able to pinpoint Osama bin Laden’s location and carry out the successful mission to kill him in May 2011 based on information yielded during waterboarding of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and information from Al Qaeda operative Hassan Ghul, who was captured in Iraq in 2004.
UPDATE: Dictator endorsements - for Obama! Chavez, Castro, and Putin have all endorsed Barack Obama. Don't think for a second it's because they respect or admire him. He is weak, and as long as he is President, America is weak. Those dictators love to see America weak.
Report: Jordan Foils Major Al Qaeda 'Linked' Terror Plot, 11 Perps Arrested
US Embassy in Amman, Jordan Among The Targets
Amman, Oct. 21 (Petra) -- The General Intelligence Department has foiled a major terrorist plot while in the planning and preliminary stages. The plot by a group of 11 terrorists associated with the ideology of Al Qaeda, was designed to target and carry out attacks against vital targets in Jordan including shopping centers, residential areas, diplomats and foreign nationals.Update: The 11 mujahidiots entered Jordan from Syria:
The objective of the plot, labeled as 9/11 (2) in reference to the Amman hotel bombings of 2005, was to cause chaos and anarchy and spread fear among the population, setting the stage for further operations to follow. The group had intended to take advantage of what they believed was the Intelligence "preoccupation" with other files, to carry out their plans.
The terrorist group made comprehensive preparations to carry out their crimes against selected targets. They performed surveillance and casing of these potential targets and laid plans for execution using explosives, booby-trapped cars as well as submachine guns and mortars.
The group, under constant surveillance at every stage by GID, experimented with explosives after procuring basic material and consulting with senior explosives' experts from Al Qaeda in Iraq through terrorist websites.
Their objective was to create a highly destructive explosive that would cause the highest number of casualties and extensive physical damage. They had planned to bring TNT explosives and mortar shells from Syria, exploiting the ongoing crisis there.
Information Minister Samih Maayatah told a news conference, meanwhile, that the 11 suspects had entered Jordan from neighbouring Syria.The best part?
"The prisoners came across the border from Syria and were caught red-handed," he said, adding that authorities seized weapons and maps showing the locations of the sites they planned to attack.,
"They will face two charges: conspiracy to carry out terrorist acts and possession of explosives," said the source who declined to be named. The charges carry the death penalty.Update: Per WaPo, the 11 are Jordanian nationals
Update: The US Embassy in Amman among the targets the terrorists wanted to hit. Gee, what did Obama say? alQaeda on the run?
[WaPo]A Western official briefed on details of the plot confirmed that the U.S. Embassy in Amman was among the targets

Anti-Muhammad Filmmaker To Be Imprisoned Until After The Election
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man behind the anti-Muhammad filmmaker
Ingsoc the Obama Administration insists on blaming for the Benghazi attacks, will remain in custody until after the election. The Ministry of Love The Department of Justice has detained Nakoula for blasphemy uploading a Youtube video while on probation:
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the 55-year-old filmmaker responsible for the anti-Muslim video that President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice initially and wrongly blamed for inciting the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, is still being held at the Los Angeles Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) without bond. [...]
Mr. Nakoula’s next court date is on November 9, three days after the presidential election. In the meantime, while the Obama administration passes blame around over who dropped the ball with the attack in Benghazi, Mr. Nakoula remains locked up and muzzled in a Los Angeles detention center until after the ballots for president are counted on November 6.

Some lulz for the night
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Saturday denied a New York Times report that said the United States and Iran had agreed for the first time to one-on-one negotiations on Iran's nuclear program, saying it remained committed to working with major powers to resolve the standoff.Talks were to happen after the election. I suppose the Mad Mullahs are praying that Obama wins. Think: Jimmah Carter, Ronald Reagan and the Iranian hostage crisis..
The Times, quoting unnamed Obama administration officials, said earlier on Saturday the two sides had agreed to bilateral talks after secret exchanges between U.S. and Iranian officials. Iran had insisted the talks not begin until after the November 6 U.S. election because they want to know which U.S. president they would be negotiating with, the newspaper said.
The White House moved quickly to deny the report, which came two days before President Barack Obama is due to face his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, in a debate focused on foreign policy.
Nothing to see here, move along.
Update and well worth the read: NYT and AP at Odds (For Now) on Whether Obama Admin Is 'Nearing a Diplomatic Breakthrough' With Iran
Seventeen days before Election Day and 45 months after Barack Obama's inauguration following a presidential campaign during which he expressed his eagerness to meet enemy leaders "without preconditions" (Obama responded "yes" to a 2008 presidential debate question containing those words), the New York Times is reporting that the U.S. and Iran "have agreed in principle for the first time to one-on-one negotiations," despite the fact that the White House has "denied that a final agreement (to negotiate) had been reached," and despite a reactive AP report (saved here for future reference, fair use and discussion purposes) claiming that while "The White House says it is prepared to talk one-on-one ... there's no agreement now to meet."[...]
In a piece that's supposed to be about a supposedly important international development, Cooper and Landler predictably blow through quite a bit of ink and bandwidth trying to paint this development as a problem for Obama's GOP opponent Mitt Romney (bolds are mine):
Report: Top Suspect In Benghazi Attack Still Hasn't Been Questioned
Abu Khattala, U.S. officials and witnesses in Libya have said, is the top suspect in the Benghazi consulate. So it came as a surprise when The New York Times found him sipping juice on the balcony of a Libyan hotel. He says no one has even come to ask him about his involvement -- which he denies.You can listen here:
New York Times Reporter David Kirkpatrick sat for two hours on a hotel patio with Ahmed Abu Khattala, the man that U.S. authorities and witnesses say was a ringleader of the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benhazi.
That attack killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, but Abu Khattala denies any responsibility. In fact, while he admits he was present at the attack, he says he was only trying to help out.
To be sure, Khattala isn't worried about anyone coming after him because of the attacks. He called the Libyan National Army a "national chicken." And he scoffed at the notion that the United States would do anything about it.[More....]
Why they keep bringing up the Mohammed video is beyond me. But more important, if true, why hasn't this man been questioned?
Just think, the video maker in sitting in jail and this man is sitting on balconies sipping juice. Obama Administration justice?
WASHINGTON – Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and National Security Subcommittee Chairman Jason Chaffetz today sent President Obama a letter and 166 pages of documents related to security threats and the process of ‘normalization’ in Libya. The letter requests that the White House respond to questions about its role in the controversial decision to have the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya pursue a course of ‘normalization’ that was intended to help create the perception of success in Libya and contrast it to U.S. operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.You can read all of the documents here[PDF] and they are mind blowing. The constant requests for more security due to the escalation of violence, and even to keep the same they had, were either denied or ignored.
Update: Pizza the Hut reminded me of this:
Obama Administration officials were watching the attack in real time and failed at taking action:

What? UN Affiliated Election Monitors Will Be Looking For Voter Suppression By Conservative Groups..
As one person stated: Are they replacing the New Black Panthers?
United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia will be at polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week. The intervention has drawn criticism from a prominent conservative-leaning group combating election fraud.h/t Tabitha
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe ( OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers around the county on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places.
Liberal-leaning civil rights groups met with representatives from the OSCE this week to raise their fears about what they say are systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP and the ACLU, among other groups, warned this month in a letter to Daan Everts, a senior official with OSCE, of “a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans — particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities.”
The request for foreign monitoring of election sites drew a strong rebuke from Catherine Engelbrecht, founder and president of True the Vote, a conservative-leaning group seeking to crack down on election fraud.
“These activist groups sought assistance not from American sources, but from the United Nations,” she said in a statement to The Hill. “The United Nations has no jurisdiction over American elections.”
Previously, on October 7th, Rep Elijah Cummings and Senator Boxer targeted True the Vote
...Cummings is upset that Engelbrecht would train Americans to ensure poll veracity. So is California Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), who tweeted, “I don’t believe this is ‘True the Vote.’ I believe it’s ‘Stop the Vote.’” She asked the Department of Justice to “protect Americans from voter intimidation … No group can be allowed to intimidate or interfere with this fundamental right that is essential for American democracy.” In other words, don’t purge voter rolls of improper voters. Leave it full of dead folks, people registered to homes that don’t exist, and the like.[...]The dems want conservatives to leaver their illegal, jailed, dead, dog, cat and Mickey Mouse voters alone!
Breitbart News spoke with Engelbrecht about Cummings’ and Boxer’s attempts intimidate poll volunteers. “Rep. Cummings has no power to independently issue a subpoena,” Engelbrecht said. “But that didn’t stop him from leaking his letter to the same Los Angeles Times reporter who wrote the original story slandering us. Then Rep. Cummings went on Soledad O’Brien’s show on CNN and, just as Sen. Boxer had done the previous week all over MSNBC, he used his power of office to assault private citizens. Leaders on the left, including Soros funded organizations like Common Cause and DEMOS, are working overtime to discourage citizens from volunteering this election cycle; fear mongering to perpetuate the myth that they are somehow being victimized. Why? They are either trying to rally their base, trying to hide something, or both.

France 24 TV: Cairo Female Reporter 'Savagely attacked'
PARIS (AP) — A correspondent for France 24 TV was ‘‘savagely attacked’’ near Cairo’s Tahrir Square after being seized by a crowd, the network said Saturday. It was the latest case of violence against women at the epicenter of Egypt’s restive protests.F'n women hating Islamic sexual perverts.
The news channel said in a statement that Sonia Dridi was attacked around 10:30 p.m. Friday after a live broadcast on a protest at the square and was later rescued by a colleague and other witnesses. France 24 did not give further details about the attack, but it said its employees were safe and sound, though ‘‘extremely shocked,’’ and that it will file suit against unspecified assailants.
The network, which receives state funds but has editorial independence, said it and the French Embassy were working to bring Dridi back to France.
‘‘More frightened than hurt,’’ wrote Dridi in French[and English..ed] on her Twitter page Saturday. Referring in English to a colleague, she tweeted: ‘‘Thanks to (at) ashrafkhalil for protecting me in (hash)Tahrir last nite. Mob was pretty intense. thanks to him I escaped from the unleashed hands.’’[...]
The square has seen a rise in attacks against women since protesters returned this summer for new rallies, including incidents of attackers stripping women — both fellow demonstrators and journalists — of their clothes.
The attack on her brings to mind non Jewish mother of two, Lara Logan, who was sexually assaulted in Tahrir Square during the beginning of the Arab Spring.
“60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan was repeatedly sexually assaulted by thugs yelling, “Jew! Jew!” as she covered the chaotic fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo’s main square Friday, CBS and sources said yesterday.

Religion, Violence, and Coexistence
On October 22, 2012, the U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) will host a panel discussion about civil society’s role in preventing and addressing provocative statements of religious bias and violent responses to it.

The Internet release of a trailer for the anti-Islam film "The Innocence of Muslims" recently sparked protests around the world, some of which turned violent. These events serve as a stark reminder of the relationship between freedom of expression[1st Amendment...ed], religious coexistence, religious freedom, violence and security.I highlighted just one above, MPAC. The group is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood and the only religion they believe should not be spoken ill of is Islam, period.
On October 22, 2012, the U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) will host a panel discussion about civil society’s role in preventing and addressing provocative statements of religious bias and violent responses to it. The panelists will discuss the complementarities and tensions between the freedoms of expression and religion, use of the media in fomenting religious discrimination, and how to work with the media to promote respect for all religious traditions. The conversation will focus on how these issues are playing out in the context of political transitions occurring throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and the way in which civil society and the U.S. government can collaborate constructively to advance peaceful religious coexistence, freedom, and security.
This public discussion is co-sponsored with the Office of International Religious Freedom at the U.S. Department of State.

This webcast is important considering the use of the Mohammed video, as an excuse, by the Obama Administration following the terror attack on the Benghazi compound. The powers that be would like nothing better than make it a "crime" to speak ill of their moon god. The maker of the film is still in jail, no?
Using shariah loving, Muslim Brotherhood supporting, anti-Semitic MPAC as a speaker instead of bringing in a pro Israel and pro US Constitution Muslims such as Dr Zuhdi Jasser to speak is telling.
Is it any wonder the Muslim Brotherhood and groups that support them, such as MPAC, are constantly smearing Dr Jasser?

Science! Debate Stacked in Obama's Favor
Is there nothing SCIENCE! can't prove?
President Obama cut off Mr. Romney in mid-sentence 36 times, while Romney cut off Obama 28 times. Moderator Candy Crowley cut off Romney 23 times, compared to the 15 times she cut off Obama.
Combining these figures, Romney was interrupted while speaking 59 times, or 37% more often than the 43 times Obama was interrupted.
Ms. Crowley interrupted the two candidates a total of 38 times, nearly twice as often as the 20 times they interrupted her (11 times by Romney and 9 times by Obama). By contrast, the candidates interrupted moderator Jim Lehrer 30 times during the first presidential debate, as an earlier CMPA/Chapman study reported.

Virginia Elementary School Teacher Charged With Assault After Injuring Student While Teaching "Islamic Hand Signs"
Instead of the scheduled reading and math classes, the teacher spend two days indoctrinating the children with "Islamic hand signs." When one little girl was having trouble, the frustrated teacher twisted the girl's arm, which was cut against a metal wire on a folder.
From The Blaze:
An elementary school teacher in Chesapeake, Va. has been charged with simple assault after a parent claimed her daughter’s hand was cut open as a result of the teacher yanking her arm aggressively while trying to teach students an “Islamic hand sign.” [...]
When Bennett’s daughter was unable to do the Islamic hand sign correctly after two days of instruction, Harris became frustrated and attempted to twist the girl’s fingers to make the Islamic gesture meaning “power and strength.” The way Bennett described it, it sounds like an upside A-OK hand gesture. It is unclear exactly which “Islamic hand sign” was being promoted as the source information comes from children.
“When she didn’t get it right, [Harris] went over and yanked her hand out of her desk and my daughter’s hand got hung up on the metal wire on her file folder and the skin got caught on it,” the mother explained, her voice cracking with emotion. “The other children saw my daughter’s hand dripping with blood after the teacher had gotten so mad that she went to twist my daughter’s hand into an Islamic sign.”
The school involved is Butts Road Intermediate School. Contact information is at the link. Just remember, if you decide to voice your concerns, keep it civil.
If you have children in public schools, you better talk to them. Apparently, none of the parents of these children knew what was happening until this little girl was injured. Find out what teachers are teaching your children.
As for the hand signs, I have to admit I am not familiar with any. I did find THIS Youtube video about Islamic hand signs. The sign in the article is described as an upside down A-OK gesture, which would be similar to the "insha'allah" sign.
Obama's Second Terrorism Cover-Up: Ft. Hood
That last post about the Little Rock terror attack reminds me of Pres. Obama's second terrorism cover-up: the Ft. Hood attack.
The Justice Department still won't call it a terror attack, even though Nidal Hasan was in contact with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, shouted "Allahu Akbar" in the process, and considers himself a mujahideen in the war against the infidel.
Here's a video about the soldiers attacked that day.
And a website advocating a change in the Army's listing of the terror attack from "workplace violence" to an act of war.
But, of course, that will never happen with this President in charge of the DOD.
Update by SH: If you are on Twitter please follow the wife of one of the injured Ft Hood soldiers, he spoke in video above, Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning. @WWWife:
Autumn Manning, Wife of Soldier wounded at Fort Hood terrorist attack Nov 5th 2009...Never forget 13 dead, 34 wounded. Combat status denied thanks to Obama.
Obama's First Terrorism Cover-Up: Little Rock Recruitment Center Attack
It wasn't Benghazi, it was a terror attack in Little Rock, Arkansas:
Though Carlos [Bledsoe] was trained by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, crossed state lines to carry out multiple crimes, and confessed to killing [Pvt.] Andy [Long] as part of his personal jihad, the Justice Department refused to bring any Federal charges against him. The murder was prosecuted in Arkansas state court as a simple drive-by shooting. The Defense Department has refused to give Andy Long a Purple Heart, which would signal that he died by the hands of an enemy combatant in a hostile act on a uniformed military man. The victims of the Fort Hood shooting are likewise denied recognition with a Purple Heart.To this day President Obama still won't call this an act of terrorism.
Tonight the documentary Losing Our Sons will be broadcast on the internet documenting the case and other cases of Islamic radicalism on US soil. You can watch it here. I expect the entire video will be posted by tomorrow.

Obama Drops Al Qaeda 'On The Run' Line From Stump Speech (Update)
Via Free Beacon:
Gee I wonder why
Update: Obama just said "alQaeda is on the run". So I guess he noticed what we noticed.
Obama, Always Thinking Of Others
During the debate Tuesday night, one questioner, Kerry Ladka, asked President Obama, "Who denied enhanced security [for Benghazi embassy] and why?" Of course, Obama didn't answer the question. His response was a vague explanation about how diplomats are often in harms way and how his political opponents took advantage of the situation.
After the debate, Ladka had the opportunity to ask Obama the question again:
As to Ladka’s question about who turned down the Benghazi security requests and why, Obama reportedly told him that “releasing the individual names of anyone in the State Department would really put them at risk,” Ladka says.
Really? But Obama had no concerns about putting an American citizen at risk. He had no concerns about the media revealing the real name and the real address of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man behind the anti-Muhammad film. And Obama had no concerns about parading Nakoula off to jail to face charges of
blasphemy probation violations.
For two weeks after the 9/11/12 embassy attack, Obama and his administration continued to blame Nakoula's film, giving the video more publicity and exposing Nakoula to more danger and more death threats.
It's one thing if Obama feared the safety of State Department employees. Don't put them at risk by naming names. But it's a whole different issue to falsely place blame and risk on an innocent person, to throw an American citizen under the bus in order to appease an irrational mob on another continent.
That is not leadership. That is tyranny. And there's is no place for such cowardice behavior in the White House.
American Crossroads: "Act of Terror"..
This is what Obama said on September 12. At 3:12 he brings of 9/11/01 and leads up to mentioning "no acts of terror":
No Mr President, you did not call Benghazi a terror attack as you stated in the debate.
In his weekly address on Saturday, September there is no mention of terror attack, just "outrageous attack". He also mentions the Mohammed video.
For whatever reason, I can't "embed the video"
Update: Here is the 9/15 weekly address video from another YouTube user:
Below the fold is the 9/15 transcript:
Weekly Address: Carrying on the Work of Our Fallen HeroesNo Mr President, you did not call this a terror attack
This week in Libya, we lost four of our fellow Americans. Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and Chris Stevens were all killed in an outrageous attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi.
These four Americans represented the very best of our country.
Glen and Tyrone had each served America as Navy SEALs for many years, before continuing their service providing security for our diplomats in Libya. They died as they lived their lives – defending their fellow Americans, and advancing the values that all of us hold dear.
Sean also started his service in uniform, in the Air Force. He then spent years at the State Department, on several continents, always answering his country’s call. And Ambassador Chris Stevens died a hero in two countries – here in the United States, where he inspired those of us who knew him; and in Libya, a country that he helped to save, where he ultimately laid down his life.
On Friday, I was able to tell their families how much the American people appreciated their service. Without people like them, America could not sustain the freedoms we enjoy, the security we demand, and the leadership that the entire world counts on.
As we mourn their loss, we must also send a clear and resolute message to the world: those who attack our people will find no escape from justice. We will not waver in their pursuit. And we will never allow anyone to shake the resolve of the United States of America.
This tragic attack takes place at a time of turmoil and protest in many different countries. I have made it clear that the United States has a profound respect for people of all faiths. We stand for religious freedom. And we reject the denigration of any religion – including Islam.
Yet there is never any justification for violence. There is no religion that condones the targeting of innocent men and women. There is no excuse for attacks on our Embassies and Consulates. And so long as I am Commander-in-Chief, the United States will never tolerate efforts to harm our fellow Americans.
Right now, we are doing whatever we can to protect Americans who are serving abroad. We are in contact with governments around the globe, to strengthen our cooperation, and underscore that every nation has a responsibility to help us protect our people. We have moved forward with an effort to see that justice is done for those we lost, and we will not rest until that work is done.
Most of all, we must reaffirm that we will carry on the work of our fallen heroes.
I know the images on our televisions are disturbing. But let us never forget that for every angry mob, there are millions who yearn for the freedom, and dignity, and hope that our flag represents. That is the cause of America – the ideals that took root in our founding; the opportunity that drew so many to our shores; and the awesome progress that we have promoted all across the globe.
We are Americans. We know that our spirit cannot be broken, and the foundation of our leadership cannot be shaken. That is the legacy of the four Americans we lost – men who will live on in the hearts of those they loved, and the strength of the country they served.
So with their memory to guide us, we will carry forward the work of making our country stronger, our citizens safer, and the world a better and more hopeful place. Thank you.
Tingles: Challenging Obama Is Unconstitutional
After the clip ended, Matthews seemed appalled. “I don’t think [Romney] understands the Constitution of the United States,” Matthews said. “He’s the president of the United States. You don’t say, ‘You’ll get your chance.’”

Congrats MEMRI and thank you Facebook
MEMRI's series of articles on Hizbullah's Facebook activity and its multiple Facebook pages was followed by Facebook's August 2012 removal of Hizbullah and Al-Manar pages; MEMRI's activity against Hizbullah's social media activities has been reported by the Lebanese media.Sh*t happens
Following this removal of the previous Hizbullah and Al-Manar TV Facebook pages, and after vowing to return to Facebook, Hizbullah created two new Facebook pages for its Al-Manar TV, as MEMRI reported on August 22, 2012.
Last night, Facebook removed these two new Hizbullah Al-Manar TV pages, as well as a page belonging to Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah. This latter page, while it was created in October 2011, has never been shut down; its removal is a new move for Facebook.[More...]
Texas Man, Manssor Arbabsiar, Pleads Guilty In Plot To Kill Saudi Ambassador
Shhh, Obama wishes this would go away
NEW YORK – A Texas man pleaded guilty Wednesday to plotting to assassinate Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, agreeing to hire what he thought was a drug dealer in Mexico last year for $1.5 million to carry out the attack with explosives at a Washington restaurantHis accomplice is still at large, most likely plotting more killing while in the safe arms of the Mad Mullahs:
Manssor Arbabsiar, 58, entered the plea to two conspiracy charges and a murder-for-hire count in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, where Judge John F. Keenan repeatedly asked Arbabsiar whether he intended to kill the ambassador. Arbabsiar, a U.S. citizen who holds an Iranian passport, said he did
At the plea, Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward Kim asked Arbabsiar if officials in the Iranian military were involved in the plot. Arbabsiar said they were.[...]
Authorities have said they secretly recorded conversations between Arbabsiar and an informant with the Drug Enforcement Administration after Arbabsiar approached the informant in Mexico and asked his knowledge of explosives for a plot to blow up the Saudi embassy in Washington.
They said Arbabsiar later offered $1.5 million for the death of the ambassador.
Arbabsiar admitted Wednesday that he eventually made a $100,000 down payment wired from an overseas account through a Manhattan bank.
The feds charged that Arbabsiar and Gholam Shakuri, a member of the Quds force Iranian military unit, conspired to kill al-Jubeir in a bombing at the diplomat's favorite restaurant in Washington. Shakuri is still at large.[More...]h/t Laura
Another Online Jihadi
Another Attempted Bombing
A Middle Eastern man tried to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in Lower Manhattan this morning, law-enforcement sources told the Post.It will be interesting to see who this actually was.
The terrorist parked a van filled with what he thought were explosives outside of the Liberty Street building, sources said, then tried to set them off using a cell phone detonator.
The suspect, who was not immediately identified, was provided the explosives from an undercover FBI agent that he met on the Internet and believed to be an accomplice, the sources said.
The suspect raised red flags after posting about Jihad online, they said.
The agent made contact with the jihadist about three months ago. The suspect told him that he wanted to blow up the bank, the sources said.
Update by SH: Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis is the perps name
Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis , 21, was arrested this morning in downtown Manhattan after he allegedly attempted to detonate what he believed to be a 1,000-pound bomb at the New York Federal Reserve Bank on Liberty Street in lower Manhattan's financial district[...]Update by Howie: The image is of one Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis from Google +
According to the criminal complaint filed today in the Eastern District of New York, defendant Nafis, a Bangladeshi national, traveled to the United States in January 2012 for the purpose of conducting a terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
Nafis, who reported having overseas connections to al-Qaeda, attempted to recruit individuals to form a terrorist cell inside the United States. Nafis also actively sought out al-Qaeda contacts within the United States to assist him in carrying out an attack. Unbeknownst to Nafis, one of the individuals he attempted to recruit was actually a source for the FBI.
I mean how many Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis can there be?
The complaint is here(pdf). Of interest to Jawa Report readers is the fact that he was an avid fan of Samir Khan's Inspire magazine. Also that the main channel of communication he used was Facebook.
From the complaint.
During that meeting, which was consensually recorded, NAFISUpdate by SH: The perp sure has a interesting interesting Facebook friend
told the UC, in sum and substance, that he wished to launch a terrorist
attack against the United States. NAFIS further told the UC, in sum
and substance, that he was collaborating with two other individuals
-- “Yaqueen” (the CO-CONSPIRATOR) and the CHS -- and that those
individuals also wanted to participate in the attack. NAFIS stated,
“We are ready for action.” NAFIS then said, in sum and substance,
that he, “Yaqueen” and the CHS “don’t care anything about our work.
We just want to meet our lord as soon as we can.” NAFIS continued:What I really mean, is that I don’t want
something that’s like, small. I just want
something big. Something very big. Very very
very very big, that will shake the whole
country, that will make America, not one step
ahead, change of policy, and make one step
ahead, for the Muslims . . . that will make us

"Civility": More Death Threats Against ______ After Debates
If you guessed Obama, you're .... wrong. The death threats are against Romney, and yet we are constantly being told by our betters in the media that the Right has an exclusive monopoly on crazies threatening violence.
And if that wasn't enough, the crazies on the Left are also accusing Mitt Romney of being a closet polygamist.
How's that "reality based community" thing working out for you Lefties these days?

Good News: Obama's Libyan Policy Yields Results
I'll defend Obama here. There is a history involving Libya and Russian made Strela missiles. But Syria was also a Soviet client. The missile could have just as easily come from rebels Obama supports there.
I know, but defending Obama is a tall order. ;-)
But given Gaza's proximity to Egypt and Egypt being right next door to Libya, Libya would be the most likely source.
Taliban: Killing of Malala Yousufzai Halal
Islam is a Religion of Peace......
Pakistan's Taliban described Yousufzai as a "spy of the West".Any questions?
"For this espionage, infidels gave her awards and rewards. And Islam orders killing of those who are spying for enemies," the group said in a statement.
"She used to propagate against mujahideen (holy warriors) to defame (the) Taliban. The Quran says that people propagating against Islam and Islamic forces would be killed.
"We targeted her because she would speak against the Taliban while sitting with shameless strangers and idealized the biggest enemy of Islam, Barack Obama."
UK: NHS Doctor, Shajul Islam, Accused of Kidnapping 2 Journalists in Syria Makes 1st Court Appearance
Via the Telegraph
Shajul Islam, 26, appeared in court yesterday charged with his role in the gang which kidnapped and injured British photographer John Cantlie and Dutch journalist Jeroen Oerlemans in July this year[...]Pushing Shariah 4 name that country brings to mind such al-Qaeda loving Islamists as UK's Anjem Choudary and convicted terrorist, Omar ( the goat humping) Bakri Mohammed.
Mozammel Hossain, defending him, said: "This is a bright young man with a very promising future in this country as an NHS doctor.
"He has a first-class degree in biochemistry. He has qualified as a doctor and completed his training.
It is alleged that Islam, with others, unlawfully and injuriously imprisoned John Cantlie and Jeroen Oerlemans against their will, between July 17 and 26. He was remanded in custody and is next due to appear at the Old Bailey on November 2.
It has been alleged that the ringleader of the group, which wants to establish Shariah law in Syria, is also a British resident who is still at large and being hunted by the police and security services.
He is said to head the 40-strong group, which also includes Chechnans and other foreign jihadists.
The intelligence services have previously warned as many as 100 Britons may have travelled to Syria to either join jihadi groups or to fight alongside rebel forces attacking the regime of Bashar al – Assad.
The arrest of Shajul is a very interesting development, to say the least.
Ryan Schools Stephanopoulos About Obama's Benghazi Claims
Debate Moderator Defends Obama's Lie
CNN's Candy Crowley jumped to defend Obama during last night's debate:
Crowley was wrong. Obama used the phrase "acts of terror" but only in referring in general terms to acts of terrorism. In context, he was speaking about 9/11 and other attacks against America. Obama never said the Benghazi attack was an act of terror.
In fact, over the next two weeks after that embassy attack, Obama and his Administration consistently blamed the attack on "spontaneous protests" sparked by the Youtube video about Muhammad.
During an interview with Anderson Cooper, Crowley later admitted Romney was correct:
Former Obama Supporter: Obama Lied To Us
A Luntz Focus Group member commented about Obama after the debate. It wasn't good for Obama.
From Gateway Pundit:
Obama Administration Had Intelligence About al-Qaeda in Libya for Months
In the months before the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. and allied intelligence agencies warned the White House and State Department repeatedly that the region was becoming an increasingly dangerous vortex for jihadist groups loosely linked or sympathetic to al Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.Really there is no excuse for not anticipating revenge in Libya for the drone strike against Abu Yahya al-Libi.
Despite those warnings, and bold public displays by Islamist militants around Benghazi, embassies in the region were advised to project a sense of calm and normalcy in the run-up to the anniversary of the September 11 attacks in the United States.
So brazen was the Islamist presence in the Benghazi area that militants convened what they billed as the "First Annual Conference of Supporters of Shariah (Islamic law)" in the city in early June, promoting the event on Islamist websites.
Pictures from the conference posted on various Internet forums featured convoys flying al Qaeda banners, said Josh Lefkowitz of Flashpoint-Intel.com, a firm that monitors militant websites. Video clips showed vehicles with mounted artillery pieces, he added.
al-Libi's funeral was held openly in Libya and received lots of coverage and sympathy in the Arab press.
This article on ABC's blotter from June 12th this year discusses al-Libi's death and also contains a video of Ayman al-Zawahiri confirming al-Libi's death and vowing revenge.
Basically Obama's claims about the intelligence leading up to the death of Ambassador Stevens suggest that the administration needs to start reading The Blotter and Jawa Report.
Also his debate claims about his advances against al-Qaeda are contrary to what we all know about recent Jihadist advances in the wake of the Arab Spring. al-Qaeda as a centralized organization may be somewhat weakened by the loss of some of its leaders, however al-Qaeda as a state of mind as the primary philosophy of jihadist groups is stronger and more influential than its ever been.
This truth is one Obama can hardly afford to become part of the public discussion. That his policies have promoted, not thwarted the long term goals of al-Qaeda and their sympathizers.
But what about attacks? Direct Jihad against the US homeland is really not required. The US is disengaging for the most part it does not interfere with the Jihadists. al-Qaeda can concentrate on other areas with only the occasional direct attack against US interests in special cases such as revenge for the death of al-Libi.
This dovetails nicely with Obama's interest that the American electorate be blissfully unaware of the danger, ignorant for the most part of the true strength of the al-Qaeda, the Salafi Jihadist movement and its current advances across the Middle East.

My greatest hopes, that Obama and Mitt would throw down did not quite come to fruition. But it was close.

DU: Romney/Neo-Cons Behind False Flag Benghazi Job
Democratic Underground thread (artist rendition)
Speaking of conspiracy nuts, it's been a long time since I trolled the Democratic Underground since there are only so many computer monitors I can safely put my fist through before Mrs. Shackleford starts to complain. Fortunately, AW1 Tim puts on a gas mask, full bio-hazard suit, and clicks on over to the DU for this little nugget of the crazy:
Republicans trying so hard to make our ambassadors killing political makes me think they were possibly behind the whole thing. Remember they have their mercenary killing machine formerly known as black water at their any whim.Okay, so every forum gets the random nut. Maybe other Democratic Underground readers shouted the guy down?
Maybe that is what Romney and his billionaire jewish supporter discussed in their secret meetings. I may be wrong on this but after seeing what their killing machine did in Iraq I do think it possible they are wiling to do anything to embolden middle east turmoil.
Just me thinking out load. I hope I am wrong, but I do feel now the republicans will do anything to get elected including killing innocent people.
What i have learned about the Republicans is when they say look over here, look over there.
Nope. There was criticism of the comment, but not over the Romney-Blackwater false-flag killing of the US ambassador to Libya all in an effort to make Obama look bad plot. No, only the part which links the Republican killing machine to the J-O-Os gets any negative feedback (various responses aggregated).
Anti-semitic comments have no place on DU...So, there you are. Today's equal opportunity crazy.
I said asserting that the Rmoney campaign's lies, distortions, and -- okay, possible criminal conspiracies -- are due to their support from a Jewish billionaire donor is an anti-Semitic comment.
I'm no Zionist apologist, but what is the point of emphasizing Rmoney donors' religious affiliations in this case?....
And thanks to AW1 Tim for dropping that in the comments.
Masada al Mujahideen Says Hamas Is Responsible For Death of Abu Al-Waleed Al-Maqdissi, Threatens Attacks
Jihadi power struggle continues in Gaza.
Via Threat Matrix:
Masada al Mujahideen has threatened to carry out attacks against Israel and Hamas in response to the assassination of Abu al Walid al Maqdisi, the former emir of the Tawhid and Jihad Group in Jerusalem. Al Maqdisi was released by Hamas in early August, and received congratulations from Masada al Mujahideen at the time.Aside from the threat against Israel, terrorists vs terrorists, what's not to like?
Masada al Mujahideen released its latest statement, titled "Important Statement to the Islamic Ummah and the Palestinian People about the Martyrdom of the Mujahid, Sheikh, Scholar, the Commander of the Tawhid Group," on jihadist forums on Oct. 14. The statement was obtained and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group.
In the statement, Masada al Mujahideen said that Hamas was responsible for the death of al Maqdisi and that Hamas "has become the loyal agent and a quicker executor than its predecessors of the orders of the occupation." The group threatened to make Hamas pay "dearly for these foolish, heinous crimes, but at the time we find suitable, whether it's sooner or later, and we will do it."
While the bulk of the statement was directed at Hamas, it concluded with a "message to the Jews." "[T]he war between us and them is long and ongoing, and the more they continue targeting the mujahideen leaders, the more oil they pour over the fire, like someone digging his grave with his own hands," the group said[ More
Awesome: Court Reverses Terrorist Conviction
And now we see the down side of civilian courts overseeing the trials of terrorist captured abroad:
Members of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington overturned the decision of a U.S. military tribunal, arguing that Salim Hamdan's actions did not violate the war crimes standards that were in place at the time of his military trial four years ago.So, what to do with this guy? The last time I checked we still are in a shooting war with al Qaeda.
“At the time, the international law of war did not proscribe material support for terrorism as a war crime,” Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh wrote in the panel's majority opinion reversing the Hamdan conviction.
Hamdan was found guilty by a U.S. military tribunal of war crimes for providing "material support" to al Qaeda in his role as bin Laden's driver four years ago.
So, are the courts now really saying that: a) You cannot hold an enemy combatant without a trial; b) You cannot convict them because fighting the US is not (or was not) a crime?
Because if that's the case, then the Court's have just set up an impossible standard for the remaining detainees at Gitmo.

Drudge Throws Alex Jones a Link
We had a Drudge link once -- once -- and it nearly shut the server down. So, I'm happy when Drudge throws the bottom feeders like us a link. But to give Alex Jones' and the conspiracy nuts over at Infowars a link? Come on Matt, you're better than that.
I'm also going to use this as a post to review the movie "Dreams from my REAL father" which I watched on Netflix yesterday since I got the idea from an advertisement at Drudge promoting the film.
Here's the review: that's 90 minutes of my life I'll never get back. It takes birtherism to whole new levels of silliness. The main thesis of the movie being that Obama's radicalism can't be explained by his mother's communist sympathies, or to his fascination with the biological father he never really knew (Barack Obama, Sr.) who also had communist sympathies and was rabidly anti-colonialist (the main point in D'Souza's 2016: Obama's America).
Instead, the filmmaker constructs an elaborate cover up in which Ann Dunham (Obama's mother) gets knocked up by Communist organizer Frank Marshal Davis and then Grandpa Dunham arranges a sham marriage with Barack Sr. so that she won't have to bear the shame of illegitimacy.
It's not enough that Frank Marshal Davis was a mentor to Obama (a point made at length in D'Souza's movie) -- he had to be Obama's real biological father.
Biology now apparently becoming the source of ideology from one generation to another.
The movie was so preposterously silly that, to be honest, about an hour into it I turned it off. So, it's only an hour of my life that I want back and not the full 90 minutes.
As you know, I have a love/hate relationship with conspiracy theories. I'm fascinated by them, but have spent countless hours of my life debunking them.
For the latest example, see my debunking of the Obama "Muslim" ring here.
I especially hate it when people on the right fall for conspiracy theories because, frankly, it makes us look bad.
Glenn Beck made a good point this morning on his show when he said something to the affect that there are a lot of disillusioned Obama voters who are hesitating to support Romney because they don't want to be associated with nutty conspiracy theorists. Whether it's Truthers like Alex Jones or Birthers like the crew at WND, we have our fair share of conspiracy theorists on the Right.
We need to admit that they are there, distance, and renounce ourselves from them.
Of course it isn't fair the way the media treats us. There are just as many -- if not more -- wacky conspiracy theorists on the Left. 9/11 Truthers, for instance, are far more likely to be on the Left these days than on the Right. The paranoia often found in minority communities are also an example of a conspiracy theory not often covered in the disdainful way that it so deserves by the media.
But complaining about unfair media treatment gets us nowhere. It's there and for the time being we're going to have to live with it.
What we don't have to live with is being lumped in with a bunch of nuts simply because we are on the Right and some random nut is also no the Right.
Barack Obama is bad enough on his own merits. We don't need yet another conspiracy theory to explain why he is the worst President in the past 100 years. The facts speak for themselves.
UNC Denies In-State Tuition For NC Soldier While Mulling In-State Tuition For Illegals
The University of North Carolina is denying an Iraq war veteran in-state tuition. At the same time, the university is considering giving illegal immigrants in-state tuition:
Perez was honorably discharged in September 2009, and, after giving birth to daughter Calleigh, and sought to build a post-military career. When her husband won a transfer back to Fort Bragg to rejoin his family, Perez started applying to colleges in the area in hopes of pursuing a master's degree as a physician's assistant. She told FoxNews.com she was accepted to both UNC’s Fayetteville and Pembroke branches and chose Pembroke. But Perez was shocked when UNC-Pembroke officials told her she was not considered an in-state resident, even though the Fayetteville branch said she was. The G.I. Bill Perez hoped to use for school does not cover out-of-state tuition. [...]
Adding insult to injury, says Thigpen, is the fact the UNC is currently considering granting in-state tuition benefits to illegal immigrants at all 16 of its branches, including Pembroke.
Her name is Perez. She should have just said, "no habla ingles" and pretended to be a non-citizen. UNC would have rolled out the red carpet for her.
It's a sad day when an illegal gets more benefits in America than a U.S. soldier.

White Liberals Threaten Race Riots If Obama Loses
I don't know which is more racially offensive - the claim that blacks will riot if their black candidate doesn't win or that white liberals have such a low opinion of blacks they think they can manipulate blacks into behaving erratically and uncivilly if the election doesn't go as desired.
Ann Coulter notes the real antagonists:
“I will note that white liberals are always threatening black riots whenever they’re about to lose an election. Al [Gore] did it in 2000.” [...]I think Ann Coulter is correct. If there are riots, it won't be racial 'black versus white' riots. These white liberals - the same people we see at #Occupy protests smashing windows and throwing Molotov cocktails at police - are essentially hoping the black community will do their dirty work for them. It's insulting to me as an American. I can only imagine how much more so it would be to a black American.
“It was very clear that [Gore] was speaking in both cases about black people rioting,” Coulter said. “Black people don’t riot, but thanks for the hat tip, liberals. And if it’s white liberals who are threatening to riot, I don’t think we have much to worry about from the people who have been hysterical about Big Bird over the last two weeks. You know, what are they going to do, knock over their sippy cups or throw a tantrum when mother is changing her blouse in the department store too long? I don’t think we have much to worry about white liberals rioting, and black people have not shown a disposition to riot, despite liberals slandering them by saying they are about to.”
I do disagree with Coulter about the severity of the riots, if they do take place. It will be a bit more than tantrums. Property damages will be high. But probably not much more than we've seen at #Occupy protests.
Good News: Obama's Friends Free Suspects in April Attack on US Consulate
Obi-One has really done a bang up job there in Libya.
State Department officials suspected that two Libyan guards hired by its own security contractor were behind an April incident in which a homemade bomb was hurled over the wall of the special mission in Benghazi, according to official emails obtained by Reuters.The unraveling of Obama's foreign policy, um, yeah.
But the men, who had been taken into custody the day of the attack, were released after questioning by Libyan officials because of a lack of "hard evidence" that could be used to prosecute them, the State Department emails show.
"Amazing," wrote Eric Nordstrom, then the regional security officer with the U.S. Embassy in Libya, describing the obstacles in prosecuting the suspects.
Fake Relatives Try to Get Access to Malala Yousufzai
Police on Tuesday questioned two people at a hospital where a teenage Pakistani activist is recovering after being shot, raising fears about the girl's security amid pledges by the Taliban to finish the job.Yeah its probably people just being overly curious. I mean its not like there is anyone in the UK who are sympathetic to the Taliban and would think they were doing Allah a service by finishing the job.
Medical Director Dave Rosser of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham stressed Tuesday that security was "under control." He said several individuals had turned up at the hospital claiming to be the girl's relatives — but didn't get very far. He said the people were arrested, but police said they had merely been questioned.
"We don't believe there's any threat to her personal security," Rosser told journalists, explaining the hospital did not believe the suspects were related to Malala. "We think it's probably people being over-curious."
Hillary Falls on Her Sword
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday tried to douse a political firestorm over the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya, saying she's responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts.To be fair then Hillary kind of ducked behind the "security teams" that "make considered decisions." So that's mighty white of her.
I guess that's true. But all of these deciders work under the framework of Obama's policies. Its Obama's policy in Libya that lead to this. Its Obama's green agenda that put the purchase of Chevy Volts above the security of our people and the plane they might have needed to leave had they had the opportunity.
As much as one can admire the Secretary for doing almost the right thing, the flip side is Obama throwing yet another of his friends under the bus.
Sad to say I didn't really expect better from him.

OBAMA'S CHANGES! (Official Music Video)
UK: Not Treating Wounded Taliban = "Murder"
I'm not saying that not treating the enemy's wounds isn't wrong .... but murder? Isn't that a bit over the top? Even for the Brits, who are increasingly acting like, well, the French?:
Five Royal Marines have been charged with murder over the death of an injured Taliban fighter last year.Maybe they should be drummed out of the service, or stripped of rank, or something for letting their emotions overpower their reason, but since when has letting an enemy soldier who was just trying to kill you five minutes before bleed to death constitute murder?
Royal Military Police officers arrested the troops after video footage was found on a Marine’s laptop that allegedly showed members of 3 Commando Brigade discussing what to do with a wounded gunman caught inside a compound in Helmand....
The Service Prosecuting Authority (SPA), an independent body that conducts prosecutions on behalf of the military, decided the five should face murder charges.

Ministry of Boobies: Guidance Counselor Fired for Slutty Pics
Tiffany Webb thought her past as a lingerie model more than 17 years ago was behind her, but those racy photos caught up to her. Webb's attorney Stewart Karlin says The New York State Department of Education terminated Webb's employment from Murry Bergtraum High School last year, because scantily clad photos of her are still on the internet.The New York Post has more.
Webb, now 37, said she posed in seductive undies between age 18 to 20, but stopped modeling several years before she became a city teacher in 1999. She has worked in elementary, middle and high schools.Well apparently she has not asked the NY Post to take those down. Hmmm....
But the photos — virtually all Photoshopped or altered, she says — kept popping up without her permission on sleazy sites such as “Mo Girls Entertainment” and “Showgirlz Exclusive,” even though she demanded their removal.
I've a personal interest in when Boobies get fired. You see when I was little I stuttered a bit, so they sent me to the speech therapist. I went to a really small school in a really small town. But we had a really really pretty young speech therapist just out of college. And I got to spend two hour with this angel every week. Cured baby! Stuttering gone! Replaced with new healthy boobie obsession!
But Coach was reading Playboy in the Coaches office and low and behold there was our new speech therapist. So did they fire the coach for, you know, reading porn in his office? Hell no. They fired my speech therapist for the Playboy pics.
I was heartbroken by this terrible injustice! So its kind of become a personal crusade for me if you will.
Anyway I've been doing some research to find out just what this scandal is all about. And as far as I can tell the pics are pretty strait forward and the school seems to be overreacting.
10,000 Muslims Protest Google Over Anti-Muhammad Video
Over 10,000 Muslims turned out to protest Google to pressure the company into removing the Youtube video about Muhammad:
TEN thousand Muslims protested outside Google's London HQ yesterday, in a bid to get an anti-Islamic video removed from YouTube.
The demonstrators want the internet giant to take down an offensive clip called The Innocence of Muslims, which mocks the Prophet Mohammed.
Police flanked the doors of the Google offices as thousands gathered outside holding placards.
And they say it is the first in a number of actions they plan to take to get the film banned.
Liberal Plant At Romney Rally?
But Robert Stacy McCain wrote Saturday that the man in the photo “is not in fact a Republican, but rather is a plant sent out by the Democrats as a dirty trick.”
McCain says there are three clues that indicate the man in the photo is a plant.
First, he says, “nobody” wears a Romney/Ryan sticker on the back of his t-shirt.
Second, McCain says, “It’s kind of chilly in Ohio this time of year, and the guy’s wearing only a T-shirt, while those around him are wearing coats.”
But the third and most telling clue is that the man remains unidentified.
“A press photographer is going to take a picture like this and make no effort to ID the guy? Nuh-uh,” McCain wrote.
Report: 'Climate Change' One Of The Top Five Threats to National Security
Climate Change: The national security ramifications of climate change are severe, according to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. While the topic of climate change has been hugely politicized, Panetta casts the issue as a serious security crisis. “In the 21st century, we recognize that climate change can impact national security — ranging from rising sea levels, to severe droughts, to the melting of the polar caps, to more frequent and devastating natural disasters that raise demand for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief,” Panetta said. The administration projects that the change wrought by a warming planet will lead to new conflicts over refugees and resources and catastrophic natural disasters, all of which would require increased U.S. military support and resources. The scientific community, in this area, cannot agree on what it will take to reverse this trend. There is agreement, though, that there is no silver bullet.Quote: "increased U.S. military support and resources"
I point you to this video from FNC's Breit Baier special: Behind Obama's Green Agenda:
The US Embassy in Vienna celebrated "greening" by using a Government Motors product, the Chevy Volt. A good time was had by all, champagne sipping, etc. The Obama administration had no problem with funding this wonderful achievement.
In a May 3, 2012, email, the State Department denied a request by a group of Special Forces assigned to protect the U.S. embassy in Libya to continue their use of a DC- 3 airplane for security operations throughout the country.Meanwhile in Libya, there were no Chevy Volts or other "climate change solutions" to celebrate, I suppose.
The subject line of the email, on which slain Ambassador Chris Stevens was copied, read: “Termination of Tripoli DC-3 Support.”
Four days later, on May 7, the State Department authorized the U.S. embassy in Vienna to purchase a $108,000 electric vehicle charging station for the embassy motor pool’s new Chevrolet Volts. The purchase was a part of the State Department’s “Energy Efficiency Sweep of Europe” initiative, which included hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on green program expenditures at various U.S. Embassies.
In fact, at a May 10 gala held at the U.S. embassy in Vienna, the ambassador showcased his new Volts and other green investments as part of the U.S. government’s commitment to “climate change solutions."
The "greening" of our national security can be summed up with these two images:
Obama Administration: "Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive". Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods are dead but General Motors is alive.
Media Withholds Names of 10 Men Convicted in Gang Rapes Of French Girls
One of the girls was a virgin when she was taken by a local Muslim gang and passed around as booty from the Kafir.
Imagine. The name one of the gang-rape victims but give no name or information whatsoever of the 10 men CONVICTED of aggravated serial gang rape of teen girls in France. I get it that names should not be given of the accused. After all, you should not be able to destroy the lives of good people on the mere accusation of sexual misconduct. This would make blackmail a national sport. But these men where CONVICTED.The men dismissed women's claims, uncovered meat you know
The 14 men on trial, now aged between 29 and 33, many of whom are married with families and jobs including one ambulance driver, deny rape. Some of them said sex took place but was consensual and that the alleged victims "liked sex". Details from the trial conveyed to the press showed some defendants making comments such as that the women were too ugly to rape, or that sexual relations had not taken place "because if they had I would have heard Nina moaning in pleasure". The women's lawyers complained that some had dismissed the alleged victims as "liars or nymphomaniacs".Also blogging Archbishop Cranmer and Blazing Cat Fur.
Another CEO Under Fire for Telling the Truth About Obama
ASG CEO Arthur Allen is my hero.
From the CEO's email:
"Would you hire a person with no experience to do brain surgery? Of course not, but that's what the US voters did in 2009. Why does the world keep hiring politicians to run our global economies when they have no experience? It just makes no sense, and yet the world keeps doing it over and over again. Let's take the lead on November 6th and show the world how it should and can be done."
Meanwhile in Russia
Russia maintains it's not supplying cluster bombs to Syria - which are allegedly being used by the government in its fight against the rebels there. Human Rights Watch earlier claimed that Soviet-era munitions are being dropped on residential areas.
You know Putin needs to get in there show them how to Russian weapons really work.
I mean both our vice Presidential candidates are trusting Saudi Arabia and regional powers to let us know which elements of the Syrian resistance are trustworthy and/or not terrorists.
You know, like Libya only bigger. The way Saudi money has worked wonders in places like Pakistan. You know the we're so fucking retarded strategy.

Shocking News! Black Voters Support Obama
I'm not really sure why AP took this story down, I mean its a mantra repeated in many stories.
Surviving slavery, segregation and discrimination has forged a special pride in African-Americans. Now some are saying this hard-earned pride has become prejudice in the form of blind loyalty to President Barack Obama.Obama is popular in the black community because blacks can identify with him. Not to mention that first black President thingy? And also many in the black community lean left as well, because they believe it aligns with their interests.
Are black people supporting Obama mainly because he's black? If race is just one factor in blacks' support of Obama, does that make them racist? Can blacks' support for Obama be compared with white voters who may favor his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, because he's white?
When does it become Taboo for discussion? Well when a black person bucks the trend and votes for Mitt. And gets crucified for NOT deciding to vote just based on the wholly acceptable because he is like me.
Stacey Dash, who also has Mexican heritage, is best known for the 1995 film "Clueless" and the recent cable-TV drama "Single Ladies." On Twitter, she was called "jigaboo," "traitor," "house nigger" and worse after posting, "Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future."In so much as whatever racism becomes apparent from this episode, the solution that AP chose, to sweep the discussion under the rug, is the least acceptable and the only decision guaranteed insure there is never any progress on*the issue.
The theme of the insults: A black woman would have to be stupid, subservient or both to choose a white Republican over the first black president.
Also if the AP's story gets flushed from the Google Cache, well I thought of that.
Hat Tip: DMartyr.

State Dept. Confirms: Marines on 9/11/12 Were Protecting U.S. Embassy--in Barbados
(CNSNews.com) -- When terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 of this year and killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, there were no U.S. Marines deployed in Libya to defend U.S. diplomats, diplomatic facilities and classified information and equipment.
However, says the State Department, a Marine Security Detachment was deployed on that day to carry out those duties at the U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown, Barbados.
“U.S. Marine Security Guards serve at the U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown, and at other diplomatic missions around the world, to protect and safeguard American diplomacy,” Rebecca Ross, the U.S. Embassy to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean Counselor for Public Affairs, said in a statement to CNSNews.com
Security for Barbados on the anniversary of 9/11 but not for Benghazi, Libya.

Tanzania: Christian Boy Pees On A Koran To Prove To His Muslim Friend He Won't Turn Into A Snake
Violent clashes erupted in Dar es Salaam’s Mbagala suburb yesterday when scores of Muslim youth stormed a police station and demanded that a 14-year-old boy accused of urinating on the Quran be handed over to them.The only one running mad are the Islamic Rage Boys.
In the aftermath of the confrontation, at least five churches were attacked, several car windows smashed and passersby injured as the angry mob moved from street to street at Mbagala Kizuiani protesting the desecration of the holy book. [...]
A source told The Citizen on Saturday that the origins of the clashes could be traced back five days to an incident in which a Christian and Muslim boy got into an argument over the power of the Quran to turn anyone who defiled it into a snake.[...]
According to those reports, the Christian boy swore he would not be harmed if he played with the Quran while his Muslim friend maintained that he would turn into a snake or run mad if did so.
The Christian boy then urinated on the book—and set off a chain of events that would turn the area into a battleground for what the Muslims described as a defence of their faith.
The protesting group initially arrested the boy at around 9am on Monday and took him to a police station.
The incident turned deadly after the angry Muslims mobilised more support during Friday prayers, reportedly in an attempt to grab the boy from the police station and behead him.[More...]
8/3/2012: Hamas Frees Abu Al-Waleed Al-Maqdissi, a Qaeda-Tied Leader Of Jihadist Group In Gaza10/13/2012: IAF Splodes Him & Fellow Mujahidiot
A twofer, I love happy endings:
JPost: The air force launched an air strike on Saturday night on members of a Palestinian jihadi organization that fired a rocket into southern Israel over the weekend – and which were planning terror attacks on Israel – the IDF said.Next?
Palestinian medical sources said two men riding a motorcycle in northern Gaza were reportedly killed in the strike.
he interior ministry of Hamas, the Islamist group that controls Gaza, said one of the men killed was Hisham Al-Saedni, also known as Abu Al-Waleed Al-Maqdissi, believed to head the Jihadist Salafi group Tawhid and Jihad (One God and Holy War).
The group, rival to Hamas, has an Islamist ideology shared by al-Qaida and sources have said that Saedni joined al-Qaida in Iraq at the beginning of the US-led invasion in 2003.
In March 2011 Hamas detained Saedni for 17 months and had freed him in August

The Good News: The tax-payer funded government program "Text Against Terrorism" has produced no credible tips about possible terrorist activities.
The Bad News: The tax-payer funded government program "Text Against Terrorism" has produced no credible tips about possible terrorist activities.
From Judicial Watch:
The U.S. government has blown nearly $6 million on an experimental “anti-terrorism” program in New Jersey that encourages the public to send tips via text message from their cellular phones.
Since it was launched in mid-2011, the federally-funded “Text Against Terror” project has produced no credible tips, according to a local newspaper report that reveals the feds have poured $5.8 million into the initiative. Police in New Jersey claim 307 tips have been texted so far and that includes people “testing the system.”

6/6/12 Attack at US Consulate in Benghazi by Brigades of the Imprisoned Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman(Blind Sheikh)
This video, uploaded a month ago by Siteintel group only leads to more where in the hell was the security for the Benghazi compound?
The Brigades of the Imprisoned Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman, which claimed the June 6, 2012, bombing of the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, released a video of what it says is the attack. In a communiqué posted on jihadist forums on June 11, the group reported that its fighters planted an explosive in the wall of the consulate, the blasting of which injured a number of guards. It added that the attack came in response to the drone strike on al-Qaeda official Abu Yahya al-Libi in North Waziristan, and also in response to American drones flying in Libyan skies.I think this video is more important than the Mohammed vid, no? Most certainly the intel community has seen this, and yet, four Americans are dead.

It's Friday, after prayers protest day. Apparently, from what I can gather, some Egyptians are not too pleased with their Muslim Brotherhood President. The protest is rather confusing because there are so many groups so unsure "who" the opposition is.

White House: Obama & Biden Were Never Aware Of Requests For More Libya Security
During the hearing on Benghazi this week, it was known several requests were made to at least keep the security they had and even more was needed. The requests were denied repeatedly.
Joe Biden, during the debate last night, denied there were security requests. He used the word "we" never knew. Why, especially leading up to the 9/11 anniversary, didn't they know and who is "we"?
I call BS

Out: Birthers - In: Ringers (Updated & Bumped)
UPDATE: It appears this conspiracy is busted!
New hi-res image:
The thing about human nature is this: when you want to believe something bad enough then you start seeing everything as "evidence" of the thing you want to believe.
For instance, that Barack Obama is a super-secret Muslim. Is it any wonder that the source of this startling "revelation" is WND -- the same people who even after Obama released his birth certificate continued to claim -- and claim to this day! -- that it's a forgery?
It's the same mindset that gave us 9/11 Trutherism. No matter how much evidence to the contrary, there are millions of people who believe that 9/11 was an "inside job". Why? Because they want to believe that it was an inside job.
Okay, so let's look at the "evidence" that Obama's ring has Arabic script on it which reads, "There is no God but God".
Here are the images that WND uses that show the first part of the Shahada. The image is exactly as published on WND, only shrunk to 70% of size to fit on our pages a little better.
Do you see what WND is doing? They've taken a very grainy photo and overlayed it with the Arabic script in such a way as to suggest to the reader what they should be seeing. And because it's not clear what we are seeing, the mind's natural tendency is to see the thing suggested.
It's a common trick. A simple optical illusion. See this page for similar examples. Such optical illusions are amplified when a suggestion is made to the observer as to what they are supposed to see.
In the example above of Obama's ring, the script is overlayed in such a way as to suggest to the observer what ought to be seen.
Further, notice that the first image of the ring in the upper right hand corner labeled "original" isn't in fact the original. Instead, someone at WND blacked out parts of the ring that they didn't want the observer to see. The actual original is the one in the lower right corner.
This actually makes a big difference in the second "but God" script inasmuch as what appears to be a simple gap from the change of one design to another design in the ring is used as part of the script.
Here are the two actual original photos, but with no suggestive outlines.
But let me make another suggestion and see if the script I suggest below is as plausible or more plausible than the one suggested by WND. I've taken the original photos -- back to 100% zoom this time. Unlike the WND "analysis", notice that I compare both original photos, including the side angle photo they published but which they -- conveniently -- didn't use when they "found" the alleged Arabic script.
As you look at my alternate design, think about the power of suggestion on the way we see things that aren't clear. Also, please excuse the shaky outline of my analysis. I'm doing this in my spare time and, to be honest, I never did have much of a steady hand. I also blew the image up to 300% in order to see if I was missing anything, and then reshrunk the image back to the original WND size. This explains why the commentary I overlayed is a little fuzzy.
What I'm suggesting is that this is nothing more than a grainy photo of a ring with a simple pattern on it and since the people at WND already believe that Obama is a Muslim, they are seeing patterns in the ring that aren't there.
Further, the un-named Duke Arabic expert was probably shown the WND image with the text. That is, he was given the very images published by WND but which were manipulated in such a way as to lead whoever is seeing them into seeing what WND wanted them to see.
As a Ph.D. myself, I can readily attest to the fact that we are every bit as human as any one else.
But before you say, "Rusty, he's an expert!" let me remind all of you about the experts in academia constantly telling us that global warming is about to destroy everything. Even experts can be mislead.
I'll also note that the only expert willing to go on the record for the Blaze's story:
While the Duke scholar seemed certain of the Arabic script present on the ring, Harvard University’s Dr. Ali Asani, a professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic Religion and Cultures, told TheBlaze that the images of Obama’s ring were not clear enough to make a determination.I agree. But only if it says anything at all. It doesn't look, to me, like it says anything.
“I’d actually have to see it much closer to see exactly what it says,” Asani said.
The entire debate condensed down to two minutes:[Update by SH: I changed the video]
You don’t win a nationally televised debate by being rude and obnoxious. You don’t win by interrupting your opponent time after time after time or by being a blowhard.
Damn it. There's goes Obama's strategy for next week.

Veteran Of Three Wars Dies At 92
Retired Command Sgt. Major Basil L. Plumley died yesterday. In case the name doesn't ring a bell, maybe this will:
Discussing the movie based on his book, "We Were Soldiers Once... And Young," writer and war correspondent Joseph Galloway said of Command Sgt. Major Plumley:
Galloway said several of Elliott’s gruff one-liners in the movie were things Command Sgt. Maj. Plumley actually said, such as in the scene in which a soldier tells the sergeant major good morning and is told: “Who made you the [expletive] weatherman?”
“Sam Elliott underplayed him,” Galloway said. “He was actually tougher than that. He was gruff, monosyllabic, an absolute terror when it came to enforcing standards of training.”
That’s not to say he was mean or inhuman, Galloway said. “This was a man above all else who had a very big, warm heart that he concealed very well.”
Command Sgt Major Plumley, we salute you. RIP.

Good Riddance: Texas Murderer Executed
A Texas man whose lawyers argued was mentally ill and incompetent for execution was put to death Wednesday evening for killing a 12-year-old girl more than a decade ago. [...]
He then looked down and said his left arm, where one of the needles carrying the lethal drug was inserted, and said, "It's hurting me bad." But almost immediately he began snoring loudly. The sounds stopped after about six breaths.
Green was pronounced dead 18 minutes later at 10:45 p.m.
Green was condemned for the abduction, rape and strangling of Christina Neal, whose body was found at his home in 2000 about a month after she was reported missing. Her family lived across a highway from Green in Dobbin, about 45 miles northwest of Houston.
I hope it hurt like hell. I only wish you could have suffered as much as the little girl you murdered. Good riddance.

Rep Kelly: Libya Security Cut While Vienna Embassy Gained Chevy Volts
[Washington Times]In a May 3, 2012, email, the State Department denied a request by a group of Special Forces assigned to protect the U.S. embassy in Libya to continue their use of a DC- 3 airplane for security operations throughout the country.
The subject line of the email, on which slain Ambassador Chris Stevens was copied, read: “Termination of Tripoli DC-3 Support.”
Four days later, on May 7, the State Department authorized the U.S. embassy in Vienna to purchase a $108,000 electric vehicle charging station for the embassy motor pool’s new Chevrolet Volts. The purchase was a part of the State Department’s “Energy Efficiency Sweep of Europe” initiative, which included hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on green program expenditures at various U.S. Embassies.
In fact, at a May 10 gala held at the U.S. embassy in Vienna, the ambassador showcased his new Volts and other green investments as part of the U.S. government’s commitment to “climate change solutions.”
The event posting on the embassy website read: “Celebrating the Greening of the Embassy.”
While the embassy in Vienna was going green, the consulate in Benghazi was getting bombed, and little was done to stop it.
Before the terrorist attack that took the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, there were more than 230 security incidents in Libya between June 2011 and July 2012.
However, Sean Smith's mother does comment on this:
Note she says she watched yesterday a report saying my son died of "smoke inhalation". That came out in the Benghazi hearing yesterday.
A mothers plea for answers going unanswered because Obama has a re-election to win.

Yemen Security Chief At US Embassy Killed In Sanaa
Nothing to see here, Osama bin Laden is dead and al-Qaeda is on its heels
SANAA, Yemen – A masked gunman assassinated a Yemeni security official at the U.S. Embassy in a drive-by shooting in the capital Sanaa on Thursday, officials said.Maybe he was killed because of the video or maybe this tweet. ten hours ago, from Ambassador Rice in support of LGBT community.
The Yemeni officials said the killing bore the hallmarks of an Al Qaeda attack, but it was too early to determine if the group was behind it. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
Wait, she tweeted that after the House Oversight Committee were investigating the Benghazi attack? The St Dept account RT'd it as well as Barack Obama.

Malala Yousafzai, a campaigner for girls' rights, is reported to be in a stable condition after the operation.
The attack sparked outrage among many Pakistanis, who gathered in several cities for anti-Taliban protests and held prayers for the girl's recovery.

The headless bodies of three men who formerly cooperated with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) were found at dawn dumped in the streets of the provincial capital east of Sanaa, the source said. He described the executions as a message to tribes not to work against al Qaeda.
The men had been accused of planting tracking devices and providing Yemeni and U.S. intelligence with information which led to the killing of several al Qaeda members.
The national intelligence agency PET was directly involved in the hunt for one of the world's most wanted terrorist leaders – al-Qaeda's Anwar al-Awlaki – before he was killed in a US drone attack in September of last year.So now they are just killing random people who use the internet and have thumb drives because they are unable to get Murad Storm.
Morten Storm, a 36-year-old PET agent working with the CIA, told Jyllands-Posten newspaper that he infiltrated al-Awlaki’s inner circle and was responsible for the series of events that led to the al-Qaeda leader’s demise.
“I helped the CIA and PET track Anwar so the Americans could send a drone after him,” Storm told Jyllands-Posten. “That was the plan, which was created by the CIA and PET.”

Obama Supporters Becoming More Unhinged As Romney Popularity Surges
Obama supporters have taken to Twitter to boast about "civil unrest" in light of new polls showing Romney with a commanding lead. Among their most proud moments:
- Tweetdowns* (verbal beatdowns aimed at dissenting voices, usually reserved for celebrities who tweet support for Romney)
- Threatening riots if Romney wins
- TWAT-ing* conservative users (A variant of SWAT-ing - Faking retweets to make it appear the original tweeter made a death threat against the President and then sending retweet to @SecretService)
- Poo Attacks
Unhinged, violent, immature, and disgusting. All rolled up into Obama supporters.
*New words coined by me! Feel free to use!
Taliban Claim Attempted Murder of Fourteen Year Old Female Peace Activist
The #proudsavage Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan claims responsibility for the murder by telephone from hiding. Apparently Malala Yousufzai had more guts than the cowardly Ehsanullah Ehsan has testes.
Reuters: Taliban gunmen in Pakistan shot and seriously wounded on Tuesday a 14-year-old schoolgirl who rose to fame for speaking out against the militants, authorities said.There are some people who just need killing, the Taliban and their ilk are good candidates whenever those cockroaches step out into the light.
Malala Yousufzai was shot in the head and neck when gunmen fired on her school bus in the Swat valley, northwest of the capital, Islamabad. Two other girls were also wounded, police said.
...On Tuesday, gunmen arrived at her school and asked for her by name, witnesses told police. Yousufzai was shot when she came out of class and went to a bus.
Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said his group was behind the shooting.
"She was pro-West, she was speaking against Taliban and she was calling President Obama her idol," Ehsan said by telephone from an undisclosed location.
"She was young but she was promoting Western culture in Pashtun areas," he said, referring the main ethnic group in northwest Pakistan and southern and eastern Afghanistan.
I'm sure that President Obama will correct me, If only she had not offended any Muslims they would not have had to murder her.
You have to understand how it makes them feel. Maybe secretary Clinton can sign onto a new UN resolution making it an international crime to like Barack Obama and peace?
Hmmmm: Obama Campaign Allowing IP Proxies for Donors
I haven't had much time to follow the latest Obama donor scandal. Quite frankly, four years ago the Obama campaign had a lot of illegal foreign donations and it didn't affect the outcome of the election one iota, so why waste our time on it?
However, this time it's getting interesting.
John E. has this about the weak security that Obama uses to match donor information from redirects which are mostly foreign, and Doug Ross now sees evidence in the websites html that Obama's people are intentionally allowing proxy IP's to be used by their donors.
That last bit? That's more than a little fishy.
Check both the stories out and then do me a favor and drop a comment if you have any insight. Is this something?
Andrew Sullivan: Crazy
A buddy sent me this link to Andrew Sullivan's latest piece in whatever gossip journal he writes for now. The thing about Sullivan is that he's crazy. I mean that literally. I feel sorry for the guy.
He keeps using the word "liar" to describe Romney when, in fact, Sullivan is just a partisan hack who uses the term as a non-descriptive pejorative. He, like most of Obama's fan boys, pretends like the last four years haven't happened.
That somehow a Romney plan for the future can be empirically tested, found wanting, and then labelled a "lie" based on ... well, the potential for it not producing the expected outcome. He forgets the fact that Obama's "plans" have been implemented, can in fact be tested, and have in fact been found wanting.
Obama promised to cut the deficit in half, instead he has doubled or tripled it for each of the past three and a half years. Either Obama was lying -- which makes him a liar -- about "plans" to cut the deficit or his "plan" didn't work -- which just makes him a failure.
Did I also mention that Andrew Sullivan is crazy? I'm completely totally serious. Which is why I just feel sorry for the guy. But more so for his readers who are not aware of his slow mental deterioration.
Huffpo: Five Most Overrated Krackers
Today, our nation engages in one of its most bizarre cultural rituals: the celebration of Columbus Day as a national holiday. Although history proves that Christopher Columbus was an immoral treasure hunter who merely stumbled upon a region that had already been "discovered" by indigenous non-whites, we continue to praise the vicious conquistador as a hero.I hate every iota of an overrated Kracker!
To honor the true spirit of Columbus Day, I have created my own list of overrated white people. Of course, this list is not exhaustive, as there are countless other White people who are equally underwhelming.
Breaking: Obama Kills Founder Of Zeta Drug Gang
Well, replace "Obama" with "Mexican marines" and the headline would be more accurate.
MEXICO CITY — Top Zetas drug cartel leader Heriberto Lazcano has apparently been killed in a firefight with marines in the northern border state of Coahuila, the Mexican navy said late Monday.
I just figured that after his heroic exploit in killing Bin Laden, not to mention making all the countries of the world love us and getting the seas recede, he'd go ahead and take credit for this one too.
And, if this report turns out to be inaccurate, and it isn't the head of the Zetas, expect Obama to blame Bush.

Black Actress Target Of Racist Attacks From Liberals After Voicing Her Support For Romney
Stacey Dash: Beauty and Brains!
Actress Stacey Dash tweeted her support for Mitt Romney, unleashing a flood of racist attacks from Democratic followers on Twitter. According to her attackers, the fact she cares about her country and wants competent leaders only proves she is a "slave" and a"jiggaboo." Some of those oh so tolerant liberals encouraged her to kill herself.
Disgusting. If you tweet and want to show your support for Stacey, tweet a message including the #ISupportStaceyDash hashtag.
MILF Jokes Temporarily on Hold
The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) has reached a deal with the Filipino government. I give it two weeks before "radical" MILFS decide the "moderates" have sold them out and that that the Islamic Emirate can only be established when the moderates have all been beheaded:
The Philippine government and Muslim rebels agreed on a deal to end a 40-year conflict that has killed more than 120,000 people, President Benigno Aquino said on Sunday, paving the way for a political and economic revival of the country's troubled south....Thanks to Lou.
The MILF and the government still need to thrash out details of their broad agreement in the months ahead as a 15-member commission drafts a law by 2015 to send to Congress.
The two sides agreed only that there would be "just and equitable" sharing of resources, which are believed to include large reserves of natural gas. Determining how much power the area will have over law, such as its scope to administer sharia justice, is another remaining challenge for negotiators.
PS -- Never do a Google image search for MILF vs. MILF with the office door open!
Hook Handed Terrorist Wants His Hooks Back
After almost a decade of appeals, Abu Hamza al-Masri is finally in the US ... and already whining. This is the part where I offer $100 to the Federal Marshals to let me lick the tears from Abu Hamza's face:
In the Manhattan courthouse, al-Masri’s court-appointed lawyer asked that his prosthetic hands be returned immediately “so he can use his arms.” The preacher typically uses hooks on his arms, but he showed up in court with exposed stumps, for reasons that were not immediately clear.Help, he's being oppressed! Come see the violence inherent in the system!!
Pentagon Reports the Obvious: al Qaeda a Threat in Libya
Your tax dollars hard at work:
“Al Qaeda has established a core network in Libya, but it remains clandestine and refrains from using the al Qaeda name,” according to the report produced jointly by the Library of Congress and the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office’s Irregular Warfare Support Program, a unit under the assistant defense secretary for special operations.The government has two kinds of reports: 1) Lie spinning; 2) Stating the obvious.
The report concludes that al Qaeda poses “a significant threat to the state-building process in Libya.”
The 54-page unclassified report describes al Qaeda—which President Barack Obama recently declared to be in decline—as “seeking to create an al Qaeda clandestine network in Libya that could be activated in the future to destabilize the government and/or to offer logistical support to al Qaeda’s activities in North Africa and the Sahel”—the Sahara desert region stretching across northern Africa.
This clearly falls in the latter category.

Help Defend Bloggers from Leftist Lawfare
An appeal from Aaron Worthing to help the non-profit that is defending him pay the bills. You can donate to the Bloggers Defense Team here.
Convicted domestic terrorist, perjurer, and drug dealer Brett Kimberlin’s reign of “lawfare” intimidation is reeling from its first sustained challenge, and he is showing signs of cracking. The support we’ve received from so many other freedom-loving people has made that possible! But “the Dread Pirate Kimberlin” is one tough & vicious customer and he won’t go down without a hard legal fight! We need your support to continue the fight for free speech!!
For years Mr. Kimberlin’s ‘sue first, ask questions later’ tactics have been based on the premise that if you threaten, intimidate, and harass your opponents most people will figure it isn’t worth it to tangle with you – and so far it’s worked.
Kimberlin put these deplorable tactics to work when he confronted Aaron Walker, but Aaron Walker fought back – losing his job and being SWATted in the process! Now, the Bloggers Defense Team led by Dan Backer has stepped in and dealt Kimberlin a series of defeats in their defense of Aaron Walker’s Constitutional right of Free Speech. Walker’s Virginia lawsuit against Kimberlin is moving forward, with Kimberlin under a COURT ORDER to produce discovery for the first time – and order he has stated he will defy.
Kimberlin’s defiance of the order seems to be based on an attrition strategy. He thinks he can outlast us if he drags out the process at every stage. WE CAN’T LET THAT HAPPEN. Kimberlin isn’t fighting against discovery so ferociously for nothing - but we may never know what he’s hiding if we run out of funding.
The Dread Pirate’s latest motion seeks to silence us by bringing baseless sanctions against Backer. He thinks if he can get sympathy from the court he can stop discovery. We won’t let that happen, but we can’t do it without your support.
Kimberlin has also been feeling the heat in Maryland, where a different case focusing on the chilling effect he and his nonprofits have had on Free Speech is also underway.
Mere days after being added to the case, the “brietbartunmasked” website that many think is run by Kimberlin has mysteriously shut down, citing legal pressure from Backer as a major reason. They won’t get off the hook that easily.
Kimberlin may be on the run but the job is far from over. The lawyers on this case that are absolutely essential to support Backer can’t work for free like he does, no matter how noble the cause, and we can’t continue to win without them. And without continued support from the blogging community, we can’t keep doing the work of defending the rights of bloggers everywhere.
We need your help. We need it now. Please stand up for free speech, robust political discourse and internet freedom by donating TODAY to the Bloggers Defense Team!
Luke Skywalker Turns to the Dark Side
The thing is, liberal douches like this are so wrapped up in the media's alternate reality that they actually believe that what they are saying is true:
Mark Hamill, the actor best known for portraying Luke Skywalker in the "Star Wars" movies, posted some harsh criticism of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in his Twitter account Thursday that drew some interesting responses.
"I've never seen a candidate for president lie more than Romney," Hamill stated. "He lies effortlessly, shamelessly. This snake oil salesman must be defeated!!!"
Israel: IAF Shoots Down Unidentified Drone
UAV spotted entering Israel's airspace from Mediterranean sea heading from West to East, and was shot down in open area by Israeli Air Force; Defense Minister Barak says Israel takes "severe view" of incident.
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) crossed into Israel's airspace and flew over settlements and military bases in the Negev on Saturday morning, according to the IDF Spokesman's Office.
The unmanned aerial vehicle was shot down at around 10am in an open area in the northern Negev by the air force.[...]
Defense Minister Ehud Barak praised the IDF and the air force for their quick and effective interception, adding that the incident occurred in an area south of Hebron.
"We take a severe view of the attempt to harm Israeli airspace, and we will consider our response," Barak said.
IDF ground forces collected the fragments of the UAV and have begun analyzing them.
The unmanned aerial vehicle did not come from #Gaza. It's origin is currently investigated.— Avital Leibovich (@AvitalLeibovich) October 6, 2012
Taxpayers Foot The Bill; Big Bird Cleans Up The Profits
Shows like Sesame Street are multi-million dollar enterprises capable of thriving in the private market. According to the 990 tax form all nonprofits are required to file, Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 -- nearly a million dollars -- in compensation in 2008. And, from 2003 to 2006, "Sesame Street" made more than $211 million from toy and consumer product sales.
That works out to around $50 million a year in profits. In the end, it's the U.S. taxpayer that loses. It's time Big Bird is weened from the public teat.

This means, each household, on average, claimed 17 new jobs.

Pakistani Taliban Warning To CODEPINK's Drone Protests: Our Suicide Bombers Are Ready For You
Sploding Pink vaginas, oh my:
ISLAMABAD (AP) — A group of American anti-war activists are in Pakistan to join a march into the country’s tribal belt to protest U.S. drone strikes in the rugged northwest territory. Their presence has energized organizers behind the protest but also added to concerns that Islamist militants will target the weekend eventLeftists will never learn, even if it kills them.
The American activists — around three dozen representatives of the U.S.-based activist group CODEPINK — along with Clive Stafford Smith, founder of the London-based legal advocacy organization Reprieve, want to march with Khan and publicize the plight of communities affected by the U.S. drones.
Ahead of the march, local media carried reports Friday of alleged suicide bombings planned against the demonstration and a pamphlet distributed in a town along the march route warned participants they would face danger. The main Pakistani Taliban faction issued a statement criticizing the event[...]
The local newspapers carried short items referring to an Interior Ministry warning that several suicide bombers planned to attack the march. Separately, pamphlets signed by a group calling itself the Army of the Caliphate were distributed in Tank, a town just outside South Waziristan. The fliers criticized Khan as an “agent of America, Israel and Jews.”
I really don't give a damn what happens as long as our troops don't have to save their sorry asses.
Email Shows Obama's State Department Rejecting Request of Security Team To Retain DC-3 at US Embassy in Libya
Fly the friendly skies of Libya Airlines, sh*t.
Via Jake Tapper @ABCNews
ABC News has obtained an internal State Department email from May 3, 2012, indicating that the State Department denied a request from the security team at the Embassy of Libya to retain a DC-3 airplane in the country to better conduct their duties.It was bad enough those in Benghazi had no quick transport out, but the Obama Administration rejected military intervention during the attack
Copied on the email was U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in a terrorist attack on the diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, Sept. 11, 2012, along with three other Americans. That attack has prompted questions about whether the diplomatic personnel in that country were provided with adequate security support.
No one has yet to argue that the DC-3 would have definitively made a difference for the four Americans killed that night. The security team in question, after all, left Libya in August
The hour is 5 p.m., Sept. 11, Washington time, and the scene is an Oval Office meeting among President Obama, the secretary of defense, the national security adviser and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi has been under assault for roughly 90 minutes. Some 30 U.S. citizens are at mortal risk. The whereabouts of Ambassador Stevens are unknown.Continued below the fold:
What is uppermost on the minds of the president and his advisers? The safety of Americans, no doubt. So what are they prepared to do about it? Here is The Wall Street Journal's account of the meeting:
"There was no serious consideration at that hour of intervention with military force, officials said. Doing so without Libya's permission could represent a violation of sovereignty and inflame the situation, they said. Instead, the State Department reached out to the Libyan government to get reinforcements to the scene."
So it did. Yet the attack was far from over. After leaving the principal U.S. compound, the Americans retreated to a second, supposedly secret facility, which soon came under deadly mortar fire. Time to call in the troops?
Some officials said the U.S. could also have sent aircraft to the scene as a 'show of force' to scare off the attackers," the Journal reported, noting that there's a U.S. air base just 450 miles away in Sicily. "State Department officials dismissed the suggestions as unrealistic. 'They would not have gotten there in two hours, four hours or six hours.'"Obama did build this.
The U.S. security detail only left Benghazi at 8 a.m. on Sept. 12, more than 10 hours after the attacks began. A commercial jet liner can fly from D.C. to Benghazi in about the same time.
Why Is The Obama Administration Defending Terrorist Supporting, 9/11 Truther MPAC's Salam al-Marayati?
Is it any wonder Ft Hood attack happened? Or Benghazi? Or the military brass blacklisting of radical Islam course instructor **Lt. Col Matthew Dooley?
Via Free Beacon
Jewish leaders expressed outrage Friday over the State Department’s praise for, and defense of, a controversial Muslim leader who has defended terrorist groups and suggested that Israel may have been responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.His twitter account is not very active but he did RT this from MPAC, hence the ** above:
Salam al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), was picked to represent the United States government at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s (OSCE) annual 10-day human rights conference, the Human Dimension Implementation Meetings (HDIM).
Al-Marayati’s well-known anti-Israel bona fides prompted Jewish leaders and others to express outrage over the Obama administration’s selection.
“It is regrettable that someone with such distorted, conspiratorial views—even with a lackluster apology—is delegated by our government to represent our country abroad,” the Anti-Defamation League said in a statement to the Free Beacon.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, argued that the State Department is showing inconsistency by touting an individual who has defended the militant groups Hezbollah and Hamas, both of which are designated by the U.S. as terrorist organizations[...]
Josh Block, a former Clinton administration official who now serves as CEO of The Israel Project, said the State Department’s defense of al-Marayati lacks credibility.
“That statement, defending a person who is clearly a terrorist sympathizer and deeply hostile to Israel, calls into question the credibility of the person who gave it, and it raises a very serious question: What exactly is the U.S. government saying here?” Block asked.
Salam al-Marayati went on Los Angeles radio claiming that Israel was behind the terror attacks. CAMERA has a list of al-Marayati's greatest hits.The Investigative Project has an extensive profile of MPAC.[PDF]
In a profile of Marayati at the Investigative Project we discover that MPAC not only has urged removing Hezbollah and Hamas from US terrorist lists, but openly defended the Hezbollah suicide bombing in Beirut in 1983, which killed 241 US service members:

Military Brass Blacklists Radical Islam Course Instructor Who Offended Terrorist-Linked CAIR
From FNC (emphasis mine):
Lt. Col Matthew Dooley, a West Point graduate and highly-decorated combat veteran, was an instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College at the National Defense University, where by most accounts he won praise from students and faculty alike. But when Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey excoriated Dooley during a Pentagon press conference in May, characterizing his course, “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism” as objectionable, unprofessional, and “against our values,” Dooley's once-bright career effectively hit a dead end, say his backers.Update by SH: Thanks to wtd in comments, here is the letter that started this bullshit[PDF]
“This was a very heavy-handed approach from the very top,” said Richard Thompson, chief counselor and president of the Thomas More Law Center, a national nonprofit public interest law firm handling Dooley’s case. “He had a brilliant career ahead of him," Thompson said. "Now, he has been flagged.”
Following Dempsey's criticism, Dooley received a negative Officer Evaluation Report (OER) after acing them for the past five years, according to Thompson. In military circles, the bad OER was a scarlet letter.
“They [superiors] ordered a negative evaluation. He will never have the opportunity for promotion unless this is overturned,” Thompson said. [...]
More Law Center attorneys believe Dooley was doomed by a letter sent to the White House, Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies a year ago and signed by more than 50 Muslim-American groups, including the Council of American-Islamic Relations. The missive decried what groups described as the government's “use of biased, false, and highly offensive training materials about Muslims and Islam.”

Teacher Berates Student For Wearing A Romney Shirt
A Philadelphia high school teacher is under investigation after she reportedly ordered a student to take off a t-shirt supporting Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign and compared the shirt to a Ku Klux Klan sheet. [...]
The teacher reportedly told the 16-year-old student that the high school was a “Democratic school” and then threatened to use a marker to cross out Romney’s name.
Can you imagine the outrage if a teacher had a similar response to an Obama shirt? Or even a Che Guevara shirt?
Good News: Syrian Rebels Discard Pesky Geneva Conventions
In Syria, the Free Syrian Army says in two days they could start executing 48 Iranians they kidnapped in August. They claim their captives are Revolutionary Guards, Tehran says they're pilgrims. The threat would be carried out if the Syrian regime does not fulfill demands to release rebels fighters and stop shelling. RT talks to John Laughland - from the Paris-based Institute of Democracy and CooperationThe Free Syrian Army seems to be more and more influenced by the al-Nusra front. The al-Nusra Front appears similar in style and tactics to Iraqi insurgent terrorists from AQI and Ansar al-Sunnah(Sharia).
At first the Free Syrian Army made statements that all prisoners of war would be treated well in accordance with the rules of civilized conflict. It appears those statements were window dressing as now they have adopted the tactic of threatening to murder hostages unless demands are met.
I seriously doubt they are bluffing.

Race Bating from Patrick Murphy Campaign
For some reason I'm on Allen West challenger Democrat Patrick Murphy's email list. Usually I just delete them and move on. But when I saw that the latest piece of email came from Congressman John Lewis, I decided to read it.
This is pure unadulterated race baiting. The email uses a prominent black politician to try to convince minority voters in Allen West's district that West -- who is also black -- doesn't want them to vote.
I'd say I was surprised, but this is par for the course for John Lewis who is likely to cry racism at the drop of a hat. But trying to pull that card against a fellow black member of Congress? That's pretty low.
Here's the email:
Friends,This is your modern Democratic party. They try to scare black people into voting for them, even when the victim of those scare tactics is another black man.
This is deeply personal for me.
I’ve been marching and preaching and fighting for voting rights for over 50 years. Today, we’re seeing a deliberate and systematic effort on the part of Republican officials to prevent minorities, seniors, the young, and the poor from casting their ballots.
Republicans are intent on beating my friend Patrick Murphy, running for Congress against Tea Party leader Allen West in Florida's Treasure Coast, and we can’t let them steal this election. We must do everything we can to protect the vote.
Will you stand with Patrick and help today so we can make sure he wins this November?
Patrick believes like I do that voting is critical to our society and it matters. We must do everything we can to protect the vote. Too many courageous people have fought to secure the vote. Don’t let it be taken away. Stand up for Patrick and help us today with a gift. Please contribute now.

Obama’s State Department CUT Security at Benghazi????
I think I've been more than patient with the Obama administration on the debacle at Benghazi that led to the murder of our ambassador, two intelligence agents, and a State Department employee. I wanted to believe that the low security profile there was intentional. That, given the mission and al Qaeda presence in the city, that our intelligence community wanted to keep a low profile. I gave Pres. Obama, Sec. of State Clinton, and the powers that be the benefit of the doubt.
When it comes to foreign policy, especially in hot zones like Libya, I think we should cut the President -- whoever that is -- a great deal of slack.
But it looks like I was wrong. If this report is true, then I'd say some firings are in order. And since it looking more and more like Sec. of State Clinton and Pres. Obama have been in full cover up and/or denial mode for weeks now, then perhaps the buck needs to stop somewhere closer to the White House?
In the six months leading up to the assault on the United States consulate in Benghazi, the State Department reduced the number of trained Americans guarding U.S. facilities in Libya, according to a leading House Republican investigating the Sept. 11 anniversary attacks. The reduction in U.S. security personnel increased America’s reliance on local Libyan guards for the protection of its diplomats.And what was Obama doing as our ambassador was being murdered and our embassies invaded? Skipping his security briefing in order to fund raise and then appear on The View.

American to Spend Life in Iraqi Prison
An Iraqi court has sentenced an American citizen to life in prison on charges of assisting al Qaeda and financing terrorist activities in Iraq, according to a government statement.
The Interior Ministry said Omar Rashad Khalil, 53, was recruited by al Qaeda in Iraq in 2005. Khalil, an architectural engineer, is of Palestinian descent and entered Iraq in 2001, the ministry statement said.
The ministry released excerpts from a confession it said Khalil made in which he admitted to receiving money from a Syrian man in the United Arab Emirates to pay for terror attacks.
Also known as Abu Mohammed, Khalil was sentenced by Baghdad's central criminal court on Wednesday. Iraqi government officials could not immediately be reached for more details Thursday.
A spokesman for the US Embassy in Baghdad, Frank J. Finver, said embassy officials were aware of the reports and were checking them. He declined immediate comment.
Young Turks Think Better of Obama's Momma Story
I've heard the accusations that Ann Dunham was a fun girl, but then again what's wrong with fun girls? Besides, never speak ill of the dead. And why bring attention to those speaking ill of the dead. And also its not at all relevant, Obama's record sucks on its own. Cheap political attacks intended to defame the President via his mother are pretty low. So low in fact that even Jawa Report has declined to run stories on this subject although we've been tipped to them many times. But catching the Young Turks eating their words for breakfast.

The Sleeper Has Gone Back to Sleep
I see that this morning even 4 out of 5 NPR panelists surveyed says Mitt Romney won the debate.

I will give Romney credit, he smells the blood of Obama's record in the water. But he didn't pound it home hard enough.
Meanwhile the Media is painting the hapless President narrative, I think Obama wants to be the underdog in the up and coming debates. Conservatives are all too happy to spike the football a little prematurely.

Obama Justifies Violence Against People Who Have "Stuff"
Transcript from Gateway Pundit (emphasis is Gateway's):
The philosophy of nonviolence only makes sense if the powerful can be made to recognize themselves in the powerless. It only makes sense if the powerless can be made to recognize themselves in the powerful. You know, the principle of empathy gives broader meaning, by the way, to Dr. King’s philosophy of nonviolence. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but rich people are all for nonviolence. Why wouldn’t they be? They’ve got what they want. They want to make sure people don’t take their stuff. But the principle of empathy recognizes that there are more subtle forms of violence to which we are answerable. The spirit of empathy condemns not only the use of firehoses and attack dogs to keep people down but also accountants and tax loopholes to keep people down. I’m not saying that what Enron executives did to their employees is the moral equivalent of what Bull Connor did to black folks, but I’ll tell you what, the employees at Enron feel violated. When a company town sees its plant closing because some distant executives made some decision despite the wage concessions, despite the tax breaks, and they see their entire economy collapsing, they feel violence…
FBI Offers Reward for MA Terrorist
You may remember Ahmad Abousamra as a co-conspirator in the the trial of Massachussetes blogger Tarek Mehanna. Mehanna was convicted of giving material aid to al Qaeda, in which he helped al Qaeda in Iraq's media division by providing them with translation services for their propaganda. Mehanna was a cause celbre among the Islamist sympathizers in the Northeast, and his case is often cited as an example of government persecution of Muslims.
Mehanna's buddy, Abousamra is on the lam, presumably in Syria. I'd hope his body shows up among the dead mujahideen, but that would deny someone the right to collect the $50,000 reward for information leading to his arrest. FBI:
The FBI today announced a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the arrest of Ahmad Abousamra, a U.S. citizen from Massachusetts charged with traveling to Pakistan and Yemen to seek military training so he could kill American soldiers....Here's the FBI video.
Abousamra is charged with conspiracy to provide material support or resources to al Qaeda. He was indicted in 2009 for taking multiple trips to Pakistan and Yemen in 2002 and 2004 to seek jihad training. He also traveled to Iraq with the hope of joining forces fighting against Americans overseas. Abousamra left the U.S. in 2006 and may be living in living in Aleppo, Syria with his wife, at least one daughter, and extended family.
Abousamra’s co-conspirator, Tarek Mehanna, was convicted of terrorism charges by a federal jury in December 2011 and sentenced last April to 17.5 years in prison.
“Both men were self-radicalized and used the Internet to educate themselves,” said Special Agent Heidi Williams, a member of our Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in Boston who has been working the case since 2006. “They came to it independently, but once they found each other, they encouraged each other’s beliefs,” Williams said, adding that both Abousamra and Mehanna were inspired by the 9/11 terror attacks. “They celebrated it,” she said.
Abousamra is of Syrian descent and has dual U.S. and Syrian citizenship. He is 31 years old, 5’11” tall, and at the time of his disappearance weighed about 170 pounds. He has dark brown hair and brown eyes. He is fluent in English and Arabic, has a college degree related to computer technology, and was previously employed at a telecommunications company. Abousamra last lived in the U.S. in a prosperous Boston suburb and has family members in the Detroit, Michigan area.
One of his distinguishing characteristics is his higher-pitched voice, which can be heard on [the video below].
A #ProudSavage Calls For Beheading German Citizens To Serve As Warning
Abu Assad al-Almani asks Muslims in Germany to attack any German citizen who supports the film by “cutting their heads from their bodies and capturing it on film so that it is accessible to the public, so that the whole of Germany, and even the whole of Europe, knows that their criminal games will be thwarted by the sword of Islam.”
(Hat Tip: Don Laird)
Like Jews In Nazi Germany...
Jews, Jews, Jews. Perpetual antagonists unless a moral equivalency can be drawn between the holocaust and that of politically correct "victims" which conveniences the leftist agenda. These days every "victim" of a perceived offense compares to the plight of Jews under Nazi Germany - Muslims, Christians, immigrants, Palestinians, politicians, animals...
Every victim is like "Jews in Nazi Germany", except of course, the actual Jewish victims of Nazi Germany!
But one California attorney is now comparing child molesters to the victims of the holocaust. Not that I'm comparing those listed above with child molesters, but "Like Jews in Nazi Germany" seems to have become an all-purpose gauge of victimization.
From NBC Los Angeles (emphasis mine):
Registered sex offenders are also required to post signs with on their front doors reading, in 1-inch letters, "No candy or treats at this residence." Those offenders visible to the public on the state's Megan's Law website and convicted of a crime against a child are required to post the sign.
"We consider that to be a violation of the U.S. Constitution," [Attorney Janice] Bellucci said Tuesday.
The ordinance both imposes "forced speech" – the sign – and restricts speech by prohibiting Halloween celebrations, she said.
"It's similar to Jews in Nazi Germany who had to wear the yellow star on their clothing," Bellucci said.
No, it isn't similar. It isn't even remotely close. Jews in Nazi Germany were innocent people persecuted solely because of their ethnicity and religion. Child molesters are criminals who prey on the weakest and most innocent in our society.
Have we really sunk so low that violating a child molester's "right" to give children candy compares with being cremated alive?

Also, he just added: DAILY CALLER PLANS EXCLUSIVE RELEASE OF 'UNSCRUBBED' OBAMA VIDEO... DEVELOPING...
Update: Daily Caller has the video/post up now.
I am trying to wrap my head around Obama comparing 9/11 and Katrina.
“Down in New Orleans, where they still have not rebuilt twenty months later,” he begins, “there’s a law, federal law — when you get reconstruction money from the federal government — called the Stafford Act. And basically it says, when you get federal money, you gotta give a ten percent match. The local government’s gotta come up with ten percent. Every ten dollars the federal government comes up with, local government’s gotta give a dollar.”Related:
“Now here’s the thing,” Obama continues, “when 9-11 happened in New York City, they waived the Stafford Act — said, ‘This is too serious a problem. We can’t expect New York City to rebuild on its own. Forget that dollar you gotta put in. Well, here’s ten dollars.’ And that was the right thing to do. When Hurricane Andrew struck in Florida, people said, ‘Look at this devastation. We don’t expect you to come up with y’own money, here. Here’s the money to rebuild. We’re not gonna wait for you to scratch it together — because you’re part of the American family.’”
That’s not, Obama says, what is happening in majority-black New Orleans. “What’s happening down in New Orleans? Where’s your dollar? Where’s your Stafford Act money?” Obama shouts, angry now. “Makes no sense! Tells me that somehow, the people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!”
It’s a remarkable moment, and not just for its resemblance to Kayne West’s famous claim that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” but also because of its basic dishonesty. By January of 2007, six months before Obama’s Hampton speech, the federal government had sent at least $110 billion to areas damaged by Katrina. Compare this to the mere $20 billion that the Bush administration pledged to New York City after Sept. 11.

Racism and Stupidity on Display at HuffPo
Or, why English professors need to get bent:
For decades, scholars in the field of critical race theory have demonstrated how "whiteness" is not a universal standard but instead a specific social identity built upon unearned entitlements. Romney's whiteness is most flagrant not in the remarkable privilege he enjoyed, but in his denial of how his race has fundamentally influenced his life's trajectory.Alternate subtitle: Why my IQ drops every time I read Huffpo; and/or: Where academia went tragically wrong.

Obama Administration Reduces Women To "Lady Parts"
Much like in Islam, the Democratic party views women as sexual organs. We are now just a hair away from being asked to cover up.
From Gateway Pundit:
The Democrats believe the only issue important to women this year is abortion.
They’ve reduced women to the sum of their reproductive organs.
This is the real 'war on women.'
Video Shows American Hostage Austin Tice
Here is a video of Austin Tice posted on the internet, an American journalist in Syria who went missing some time ago. It is the first public proof of life that we've seen of him.
I just watched a CNN International report on the video, which raises doubts as to just who is holding Tice. The inference is that while the video does show Tice, that since the captors are not wearing the right clothes for Syria, that it's some kind of put on my the Syrian government to make the opposition look bad. However, given that there are thousands of Islamist radicals who have come from abroad to Syria in order to fight the Assad regime, it's not clear to me why they wouldn't be wearing clothes that were ... un-Syrian?
Whoever is holding Tice, the video does make them look bad. From the shouts of "Takfir!" and the replies of "Allahu akbar", this seems very much a precursor to the hostage being murdered. It's a mantra, a kind of way to psych one self up to the horror of taking an innocent life.
And Tice's reaction seems to indicate that at least he believes that he is about to be murdered.
This is not good.
The video below is not graphic, but its implications are upsetting. Let's pray that the "mujahideen" here are only trying to scare the American hostage. The alternative is horrible.
MEMRI: Tehran Declares Intent To Enrich Uranium To 90% For Military Purposes – Nuclear Submarines
Mad Mullah's but, but we didn't really mean 90%, honest
Introductionh/t Mean Kitteh
In recent months, Iranian regime spokesmen have conducted a campaign of statements regarding Iran's intent to enrich uranium for use in nuclear-fueled ships and submarines – the latter a patently military use of nuclear power. Regime officials, regime dailies, and websites close to the regime issued no fewer than 12 such statements, in which they declared Iran's intent to enrich uranium for nuclear fuel to power both surface sea craft and submarines. It should be noted that while nuclear fuel for surface craft entails uranium enrichment of 50-60%, nuclear-powered submarines require enrichment of 90%, which is the same level needed for the production of a nuclear bomb.
From its inception, this campaign of statements was meant as a counterargument to heightened Western sanctions. The regime said that in the face of sanctions restricting its use of oil, Tehran had no choice but to develop an alternative source of energy to fuel commercial transport, in order to maintain its ties with the world. However, in what would seem a strategic error, regime spokesmen in their statements conflated nuclear fuel for surface vessels for use in trade, with nuclear fuel for submarines which are categorically designated for military use, not civilian use.
For this reason, after realizing that these statements had exposed Tehran's intentions to attain the 90% enrichment needed for a nuclear bomb, the Iranian regime has over the past month issued no further declarations regarding nuclear submarines. Moreover, several regime spokesmen backed down from the declarations, stating that Iran has no need at this stage for uranium enriched beyond 20%, and that the country is nonetheless capable of higher enrichment.
The following report will review these statements and the attempts to back down from them:

Arab Spring! Woman Charged with Indecency in Her Own Rape
Outraged Tunisians took to the streets by the hundreds Tuesday, angrily protesting the treatment of a woman who was allegedly raped by police officers -- and then charged with public indecency when she filed a complaint.Lets be strait on this one huh, this is what Sharia law does for women. The men who raped her know Islam and the Sharia and according to Sharia this woman was engaged in fornication. Fornication is against Sharia. Now had she been married to someone else the penalty is death. But since its only fornication this couple was engaged in the Sharia says the punishment is corporal. They both should be severely beaten after a proper trial in a Sharia court.
"At best, charging the victim of a rape by police officers instead of protecting her from intimidation and stigma highlights the deep flaws on Tunisian law and criminal justice system," said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, deputy Middle East and North Africa program director at Amnesty International.
"At worst, it is an insidious attempt to discredit a rape victim and protect those she accused of raping her."
In this case the officers implemented a more informal on the spot Sharia. The young man should count himself lucky he was only extorted, instead of imprisoned beaten and fined. As for the young lady she has no recourse, under Sharia she needs four supporting male witnesses or 8 supporting female witnesses to verify her claim of rape.
In the opinion of the Police, since she was obviously an unchaste woman under the Sharia they are perfectly within their rights to just do what comes naturally with uncovered meat and just take her knowing she'll not only have no recourse but that her story will be a warning to chaste women not to violate the Sharia.
Sharia law is antithetical to freedom for everyone, but especially to females. And any system that implements the Sharia or has a constitution that enshrines Sharia as its basis and uses Sharia as its basis for family law will be inherently unfair and oppressive to women.
Enjoy the tunes.

U.S. Consulate in Benghazi Bombed Twice in Run-Up to 9/11 AnniversaryJihadis Posted Threats On Facebook
Jihadists twice set off explosives at the consulate prior to the incident that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, and announced threats on Facebook about escalating attacks on Western targets in the run-up to the 9/11 anniversary, according to whistleblowers reaching out to House Republicans.You can bet your boots Obama wants to know who these "whistleblowers" are. He has a re-election to win and to hell with the fallen at the Benghazi consulate.
n the five months leading up to this year’s 9/11 anniversary, there were two bombings on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and increasing threats to and attacks on the Libyan nationals hired to provide security at the U.S. missions in Tripoli and Benghazi.
Details on these alleged incidents stem in part from the testimony of a handful of whistleblowers who approached the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in the days and weeks following the attack on the Benghazi consulate. The incidents are disclosed in a letter to be sent Tuesday to Hillary Clinton from Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the oversight committee’s subcommittee that deals with national security.
The new information disclosed in the letter obtained by The Daily Beast strongly suggests the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and the late Ambassador Chris Stevens were known by U.S. security personnel to be targets for terrorists. Indeed, the terrorists made their threats openly on Facebook.
For example, following a May 22 early-morning attack on a facility that housed the International Committee on the Red Cross, a Facebook page claimed responsibility, and said the attack was a warning and a “message for the Americans disturbing the skies over Derna.” That reference was likely to American surveillance drones over a city that provided fighters to al Qaeda in Iraq in the last decade.
The State Department did not offer comment on the record last night.
In June a Facebook page associated with militants linked to the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi posted a threat to Stevens based on the route he took for his morning jog[...]
Rep. Chaffetz told The Daily Beast Monday that the allegations detailed in the letter were based on whistleblowers he described as “people who have firsthand knowledge of the incidents themselves.” Chaffetz declined to provide more details about the whistleblowers other than to say they were U.S. government employees and there were fewer than 10 of them.
Obama Will Cover Legal Costs for Companies Who Withhold Layoff Notices
Due to Obama's failure to lead and craft a solution to the debt crisis, the Department of Defense is slated for massive cuts.I've also heard that the Department of Justice (cough) will cover legal fees. That is the cost of defending lawsuits and any settlements.
These cuts mean massive layoffs in both the DoD and affected industries.
200,000 or more layoffs.
The law requires that companies which know they're going to lay people off provide advance notice of this.
But Obama doesn't want those notices going out before the election.
So he's warned contractors to not comply with the law.
And if that weren't illegal enough, he's also promising to waive the fines the law says they must pay due to failure to notify.
But all the reports I've heard on this speculate that is because of the election. And it is but then again it isn't.
Obama told a lie to the American people on the events in Benghazi as well. There are now reports that the British Ambassador was attacked shortly before Chris Stevens was murdered. Not only that but our consulate had been attacked twice prior.
In the five months leading up to this year’s 9/11 anniversary, there were two bombings on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and increasing threats to and attacks on the Libyan nationals hired to provide security at the U.S. missions in Tripoli and Benghazi.So why did Obama lie about the deteriorating security and ascendance of al-Qaeda aligned Islamic militia in Libya?
Details on these alleged incidents stem in part from the testimony of a handful of whistleblowers who approached the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in the days and weeks following the attack on the Benghazi consulate. The incidents are disclosed in a letter to be sent Tuesday to Hillary Clinton from Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the oversight committee’s subcommittee that deals with national security.
Sure its the election. But also it ruins the Obama foreign policy narrative all the way around. Obama can't risk becoming the any more the weak horse than he already is. It will embolden our enemies and further deteriorate the situation.
So no matter how much right the American people have to know, Obama has at least two angles here that motivate him to be deceptive about the general security situation and his failures in defending us from Islamic terrorists.
In the same way these layoff notices are about politics and the election. Obama can hardly afford more bad numbers leading up the election. Every bad report supports the narrative that whatever Obama says about the economy, he's not cutting the mustard.
So he's not going to tell you how the economy is going to look in the near future. Manufacturing is down, its a leading indicator. The fed is dumping dollars to devalue the currency at a rate upwards of 40 billion per month. Prices are high and wages are not rising. Unemployment %8+.
In the same way if Obama is strait with America on our economic situation and his failures, it not only hurts his chances for reelection. It also lets the economic cat out of the bag.
He doesn't wan't you to know that its very possible that in the next six months we could find ourselves on the downward slide of a new recession. You have every right to be told the truth so you can make accurate judgments about your future.
Its in Obama's interest that as many as possible are kept in ignorant bliss about these dark clouds. Not only because his ass is on the line in November but because he's gotten America in such a bad way that he can't afford to be strait on the economy. Lest the truth coming out becomes the straw that broke the back of Obama's at best tepid recovery.
Naco, Arizona: 2 US Border Patrol Agents Shot, 1 Killed, Near Major Drug Smuggling CorridorAgent Indentified as Nicholas Ivie
The shooting happened in the same area where Border Agent Brian Terry was killed.
Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were shot, one fatally, Tuesday morning in an area south Arizona known as a major drug-smuggling corridor, authorities said.Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected by this.
The identities of the agents were not immediately released, but the shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, Ariz., which is just south of Tucson. The station was named after an agent who was killed in the line of duty in December 2010.[More]
Update: Via AZ Family
The agents were shot while patrolling on horseback in Naco, Ariz., at about 1:50 a.m. MST Tuesday, the Border Patrol said in a statement.
The agents who were shot were on patrol with a third agent, who was not harmed, according to George McCubbin, president of the National Border Patrol Council, a union representing about 17,000 border patrol agents.
The last Border Patrol agent fatally shot on duty was Brian Terry, who was killed in a shootout near the border in December 2010. The shooting was later linked to the U.S. government’s Fast and Furious gun smuggling operation.
McCubbin said he had no further information regarding the shooting[More...]
Update II: Mudered Border Patrol Agent identified as Provo, Utah native 30yr old Nicholas Ivie:
[Tucson Sentinel]A U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed and another wounded in a shooting Tuesday morning near Naco, the agency said. Border agents are searching the hills between Bisbee and Douglas for the gunman.Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and children. May those responsible for his murder be found and brought to justice.
Nicholas Ivie, 30, was killed around 1:50 a.m. after he and two other agents responded to a sensor hit near mile marker 352 on State Route 80, the Border Patrol confirmed about 12:30 p.m.
At an afternoon news conference, FBI Special Agent in Charge James Turgal refused to release specifics on the case; he declined to comment on reports that two suspects in the shooting have been detained in Mexico.
I'm not going to talk about any issues regarding suspects at this time," Turgal told reporters at 2 p.m.
The wounded BP agent, who has not yet been identified, was airlifted to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He underwent surgery and was in stable condition Tuesday morning. The agent was expected to be released from University of Arizona Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon, said George McCubbin, president of the National Border Patrol Council, the union representing border agents.
The slain agent was identified as Nicholas J. Ivie, a native of Provo, Utah. Ivie joined the Border Patrol in January 2008. Ivie is survived by a wife and two children, agents said.

The Graph All Obama Supporters MUST See (Sticky)
Please send this to all of your Obama supporting friends and acquaintances. The graph represents the labor participation rate for the past 10 years. As you can see, when Obama took office 65.7% of adults were working. Today, that number has decreased to 63.5%
Click for bigger
Put another way, about 4 million fewer people are working today than when Obama took office. And as you can also see, since Obama's "recovery" began there are even fewer people working then in the worst of the recession he inherited.
The unemployment rate is defined as people looking for work divided by the number of people actually working. The one and only reason unemployment has "dropped" from the recession high is that far fewer people are looking for work today.
Obama inherited a bad economy. No one is arguing that he didn't.
But Obama's policies have made it worse. Fewer people have jobs, incomes are down, government has grown unchecked, the debt has skyrocketed, the economy is growing at the speed of a crawl, and the US is less prestigious in the world.
He is an utter failure. Empirically the worst President in modern history by all fair and objective measurements.
Obama Energy Policy Hurts Poor the Most
Last week, Examiner columnist and Manhattan Institute fellow Diana Furchtgott-Roth, author of the new book “Regulating to Disaster: How Green Jobs Policies Are Damaging America’s Economy,” explained that:Not only that but the policies also hurt small producers more than the so called Majors.Most people think green is good but pay little attention to associated increases in costs. In 2015, it will cost between $49 and $79 to generate one megawatt hour of electricity from natural gas. A megawatt hour from onshore wind will cost between $75 and $138, and from solar photovoltaic will cost between $242 and $455.As her book demonstrates in this chart, rising costs of energy hit lower income Americans the hardest, because they spend a higher proportion of their incomes on energy:

Censorship For the Common Good
The idea that censorship is something to be embraced for the common good has been around since at least Socrates, who you will no doubt not remember from your Intro. to Philosophy class, was the first to propose "the noble lie" as necessary to keeping the state well oiled and ordered.
Given the not-such-a-coincidence that his most loyal follower, Plato, named the very first institution of higher learning The Academy, it should come as no surprise that the neo-fascists have found such a welcome embrace in academia.
