BETRAYAL… “With the self-assured manner of a snake-oil salesman promising to cure all ills with his magic tonic, Barack Hussein Obama gave the people what they wanted…hope! But the hope he gave them was not based in reality, but on lies and deception”

Last November the American people sold their freedom for free stuff and traded their birthright for trinkets. The”messiah” stood before the unknowing masses and with lies and deception promised the people he would care for them, that while others sought to oppress them, he like Moses would lead the downtrodden to the promised land.
But the hope he gave them was not based in reality, but on lies and deception, on a promise he wouldn’t keep any more than the last promise he made, or the promises that were yet to be made.
The nature of the Benghazi disaster is now clear. Ambassador Stevens was engaged in smuggling sizable quantities of Libyan arms from the destroyed Gaddafi regime to the Syrian rebels, to help overthrow the Assad regime in Syria.
Smuggling arms to the so-called “Free Syrian Army” is itself a huge gamble, but Obama has been a gambler with human lives over the last four years, as shown by the tens of thousands of Arabs who have died in the so-called Arab Spring — which has brought nothing but disaster to the Arab world.
Benghazi Attack Was Botched Kidnapping To Trade Blind Sheik.
America watched in disbelief as Barack Obama tried to tell the American people that the attack on the Libyan consulate on September 11 was the result of an amateurish, anti-Muslim video that had been on YouTubefor three months with barely three hundred views.
Then suddenly the administration announced that it was, yes, a terrorist attack, but that it was the intelligence community that had fed him bad information, even though we knew our intelligence community had known it was an al-Qaeda-linked attack within twenty four hours.
“In Syria, I will work … to identify and organize those members of the opposition who share our values and ensure they obtain the arms they need to defeat Assad’s tanks, helicopters and fighter jets.”
This commitment by Mitt Romney in his VMI address has thrilled the neocons as much as it has unsettled the realists in his camp.
Two Failures by Andrew P. Napolitano… (“President Obama is a failure as a president, and Gov. Romney is a failure as a candidate.”)
President Obama is a failure as a president, and Gov. Romney is a failure as a candidate.
When he took office, Obama told the press that if he couldn’t cure the economic mess he inherited from President George W. Bush in four years, he wouldn’t deserve a second term. I guess he didn’t anticipate making the mess worse.
When he took office, the federal government owed $11 trillion to its creditors; today it owes $16 trillion. When he took office, gasoline was running about $1.85 a gallon and today costs about $3.85 a gallon. This is price inflation that he directly caused by flooding the markets with cash, and that directly harms the middle class and the poor. Unemployment has remained north of 8 percent throughout his presidency for those still looking for a job, and about 16 percent if you count all able-bodied out-of-work adults, half of whom have stopped looking for work on his watch.
The Arab Spring Becomes a Western Winter (“Let The arabs alone and let Them Run Their Own governments”) by Andrew P. Napolitano
Is the Arab Middle East ready for democracy? We know how the past two Americanpresidents have answered this.
The original stated purpose for invading Afghanistan was to destroy the folks who provided shelter to the 9/11 attackers, and the original stated purpose for invading Iraqwas to rid it of a government that possessed and might use weapons of mass destruction.
Beware an October state of ‘emergency’ (… Obama’s options should he fear electoral defeat) (“As the reincarnation of Meyer Lansky once said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”)
As the reincarnation of Meyer Lanskyonce said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
Well, wadda ya know, the Duplicitous Despot just happens to be a man badly in need of a serious crisis, and the Middle East just happens to be on fire. But surely Obama couldn’t have created the turmoil in Arab countries all by himself, could he?
Bachmann: ‘Obama Is the Most Dangerous President We Have Ever Had on American Foreign Policy’ (““And so now you see this media doing absolutely everything they can to scramble, to make sure that their guy doesn’t get the blame for what’s going down this week. It’s important to highlight the context of what got us to this point. It didn’t just happen out of nowhere,” Bachmann added.”)
“So let’s make sure that with everything within us, we lay it on the line in the next 50 days, because it is my belief and my opinion that Barack Obama has been the most dangerous president we have ever had on American foreign policy. And we cannot sustain another four years of Jimmy Carter-like policies,” she said at the summit, which is sponsored by the conservative pro-family group the Family Research Council.
The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) National Terror Alert Response Center released a new terrorism threat warning entitled,
“Egyptian-Iranian intelligence meeting prompts fears of a new Middle East terror axis.” According to yesterday’s release, U.S. intelligence monitored a secret meeting that confirmed the Muslim Brotherhoodin Cairo is working in consort with Iranian spies and “could begin covertly supporting global terrorism.”

Video report confirms Egyptian crucifixions

The English translation of a section of the Sky News report, circled in red in the video, references that members of the Muslim Brotherhood “crucified” dissidents “naked on trees in front of the presidential palace.”
Like most “average” Americans barraged by a daily onslaught of news headlines, sound bites and printed blurbs in newspapers and on the internet about current events, I’ve found it easy to become rather
desensitized to the majority of “white noise” that has become the daily news. As such, it’s easy to lose sight of significant events or “game changers” amid the chatter of everyone behind a microphone, television camera or typing at a news terminal.
Now add to this explosion of news and knowledge one’s own career where we “average” people are busy trying to make a living, keep the lights on, food on the table and the proverbial wolves from our door, it’s easy to lose sight of important events taking place right in front of us. Done by design, it’s also easier to be deceived and fall for big lies as well as the smaller ones.
(“President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim!”) Is Barack Obama the “Enemy from Within”? Yes, Domestically And Globally!
Today’s announcement that Hosni Mubarak is now gravely ill and apparently on his death-bed prompted me to remember the events of last year. I remember vividly turning on Fox News around 5:30am, clutching my cup of French vanilla/breakfast blend coffee.
I was greeted by an incredible scene– thousands of Egyptians in the streets, rioting/protesting. Four or five hours later, I also recall the White House held a briefing with Robert Gibbs (the then-Press Secretary). I honestly cannot remember which reporter asked him the question, but it went along these lines: Mr. Gibbs, can you tell us who or what group is behind these protest in Cairo? The response was simply, “No.” Next question, please.
If the United States saw similar turnouts at Federal and State government buildings, would our leadership resign without a fight as well? Are we to believe that the same logic being used to compel dictators in the middle east to step down would be applied domestically if the people, in a public show of protest, deemed our government to be tyrannical and it’s leaders dictators? Moreover, does this mean that any such civil disobedience, riots, and gunfire would be ignored by military and law enforcement, who would be ordered to, as Mr. Gates suggested to Syria, stand on the sidelines?
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s interview to an Egyptian televison network the other day gave us a rare insight into why America is has so quickly gone down the road of self-destruction – judicial tyranny, plain and simple.Excerpt Read more at setourchildrenfree.com …
Notorious human rights abusers draw inspiration from US authorities
Paul Joseph Watson
Monday, November 21, 2011
Egypt’s infamous state security apparatus, notorious for spying on political activists and torturing dissidents, has renamed itself “homeland security,” presumably in homage to its American namesake, which has also been used as a tool of political repression.
Egypts Secret Police Renames Itself Homeland Security egypt beating
As part of the re-branding of dictatorship in Egypt, the same security force implicated in the imprisonment and torture of anti-Mubarak activists is busy reorganizing itself while maintaining intimidation and spying campaigns targeted against parliamentary candidates by bugging phone calls and harassing prominent critics of the ruling military regime’s bloody crackdown on protesters.
Fresh off the back of bombing Libya under the guise of “humanitarian intervention” while calling on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down over mistreatment of protesters, the Obama administration has taken a noticeably different approach to Egypt’s brutal military junta that is now busy torturing and killing demonstrators on the streets of Cairo.
Islamist: We sparked violent protests in America

“We can say with full confidence that the latest spring in Africa and the Arab world and the uprising in Europe and the United States is the effect of Afghan jihad on [an] international level and all these revolutions have gotten inspiration from our [faithful] mujahideen and their resistance,” he wrote.
Remember a peculiar fact: even though Gaddafi was generally a horribly repressive anti-American dictator, in his final years he tried making a deal with the Americans. Gaddafi was frightened by the U.S. attack on Iraq in 2003 and didn’t want to be next on the list. So he cooperated, gave up his nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction programs, and reduced his foreign subversive efforts.
That did not save him from being overthrown by the United States, just as it did not save a genuine American ally, President Hosni Mubarak in Egypt. On this point, I’m not advocating anything about what the United States should have done in Libya but just observing how it will be received in the region.

Thousands of pages have already been written in explication of the British rioting and (quite lesser incidence of) American flash mobbing. If one combines these analyses with direct news accounts, op-eds, Youtube confessionals, and official government pronouncements describing constantly changing strategies, I think one can draw three disinterested conclusions.
1. Material well-being is now defined in relative rather than absolute terms. That is, poverty means lacking the opportunities afforded the 21st-century upper middle classes, not in being deprived, in a Dickensian sense, of food (obesity, not hunger, is a Western epidemic), shelter, hot water, or access to transportation.
2. There is a natural assumption that inequality is attributable to oppression of some sort, rather than luck, fate, circumstances of birth, hard work, education, and all the multitude of complex factors that determine that a few work for $200 an hour and far more earn $20 or less. That someone appears more fortunate ipso facto seems somewhat unfair, without much reflection about the unique circumstances that bestow such advantages (or the unfairness of nature herself in blessing only some with talent or good health), as if the emergency-room surgeon or nuclear-plant engineer was allotted such privileged employment rather than sacrificed to earn it.
3. There is a general expectation that the better-off, or even the middle class, as well as government and society at large, are either unable or unwilling to defend their values and accomplishments — or even to demonstrate much belief in their own innate good. This seems to be well known to the miscreant offenders who have little fear and less respect for “authority.” Perhaps it is because we in the West have ruined our education system and most of our youth are thus amnesiac, with no knowledge of past conditions or of the work and bequests of prior, far more deprived generations. Perhaps it is because our ethos frowns on rewarding good behavior and punishing bad — not that we can define either very easily these days. So when rioters hit the British streets, the ruling classes and technocratic elite debate over whether non-lethal force such as plastic bullets and water cannon could be seen as excessive, and an aristocracy wonders out loud whether society itself is to blame for the torching of a food market. (One’s physical proximity to the mayhem often calibrates such abstract speculations).
Very few Westerners proudly say that their social, political, and economic system has given untold numbers untold material wealth unimagined not just a century but even two decades ago, as well as a level of freedom of expression, security of the person, and consumer indulgence that would seem staggering to most non-Westerners today. Instead, the more fortunate classes adopt a therapeutic sense of publicly expressed guilt that seems rightly phony to the dispossessed, and is seen by themselves as a sort of medieval penance, an abstract caring that justifies their own concrete and rather segregated enjoyment of the good life. As for the law, it is too often a construct predicated on fluid social, race, and class considerations, and thus — whether in enforcing immigration statutes or arresting and trying hordes of attackers — not so easily applied. In general the misdemeanor of the law-abiding citizen is more of a target than the felony of the miscreant — the latter always being a money-losing and sometimes far more dangerous enterprise.
To start to address these pathologies would in the short term make things worse, since the transformation from state dependence to self-reliance and a change from a [blank]-studies curriculum to a classically defined menu of basic math, science, language, literature, history, etc. would provoke a level of social disruption and anger that few politicians would be willing to endure. (The problem is not really going from a separatist salad bowl to a unifying melting pot, but rather that so few people these days know much about a common culture and have the expertise and confidence to teach anyone its history and protocols.)
A final note: Furor often arises not over draconian cuts to entitlements per se, but over suggested cuts to the expansion of subsidies, and the most aggrieved at such cutbacks are not always just the recipients but also the worried state stewards who administer and are invested in the system of state support.
I’ve long believed that the legitimacy of the state – that is, the state as seen and judged by those it governs – has been declining. But I’ve come to conclude that decline is not the right word, as we are not heading to an anti-state moment.
Rather, the ability of the state to act and justify its actions is getting narrower. People are demanding as much of the state but becoming much harsher in their judgement of the state. And the state can no longer assume that because it acts, it can justify its actions merely because it’s the state.
“It’s the right thing to do because we say so. Nyaaah!”Allow me to try and explain.The modern state – the state birthed in the Protestant Enlightenment – possesses two very important monopolies. The first is on the moral and lawful use of violence and coercion.
The state alone can compel human action and punish human beings for actions against the law or for failing to act. This is “moral” because many perhaps most human beings through time have viewed state violence violence done by those who have been appointed agents of the state as having a moral legitimacy that mere individual violence does not have. And this is a trait of the state for as long as human beings have lived together.
This is not new, and it will not go away. This monopoly on lawful and moral violence is what makes the state the state.The other monopoly the state possesses is that of meaning. The state alone, especially from early 19th century through to about the middle of the 20th, took to itself the sole or primary right to construct the narrative through which human life within and often outside the state would be valued and given purpose.
The state would author the story and create the ideas that would determine the purpose and meaning of individual and collective human life, what human beings would live for, contribute for, sacrifice for and die for. The state would accept no alternative narratives, no different meanings – all were considered threats to the creation of a state-centered society society being that community contiguous with the nation-state. The state was the sole creator and sustainer of human purpose, and would accept absolutely no dissent…………………
anything but the fourth estate!

Is this why Obama is silent as Gadhafi massacres ?
WND ^ | February 23, 2011 | Aaron KleinPosted on Wednesday, February 23, 2011 6:16:33 PM by RobinMastersJERUSALEM – As pressure mounts on the White House to intervene to stop Moammar Gadhafi‘s bloody crackdown in Libya, many commentators have been wondering why Barack Obama has been cautious in his criticism of the dictator after the U.S. president so fervently supported the removal from office of U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak of Egypt.
But Gadhafi has been tied to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s spiritual adviser for more than 23 years.The Libyan dictator also has financed and strongly supported the Nation of Islam and its leader, Louis Farrakhan. Obama has ties to Farrakhan and his controversial group.
So far, White House officials have called for an end to the violence but have seemingly ruled out any unilateral action in Libya. Despite Gadhafi’s reported ordering of massacres that reportedly have killed hundreds of civilians in recent days, Obama hasn’t called on Gadhafi to leave office.
Pressure has been mounting on Obama to take a tougher stand, with the chairmen of the House and Senate foreign relations committees calling on the White House to re-impose economic sanctions on Libya that were lifted in 2004.
But Obama has multiple close ties to activists who have had relationships with Gadhafi.Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of Obama’s longtime Chicago church, went with Farrakhan to visit Gadhafi in 1984.

Staff investigators with the House and Senate intelligence committees say they are probing the domestic security threat posed by the radical Muslim Brotherhood and, specifically, whether Brotherhood operatives have penetrated the U.S. government.
As the Muslim Brotherhood threatens to effectively replace Egypt’s secular, pro-Western regime, the tentacles of its worldwide jihadist movement have reached deep into the Muslim community in America. Shockingly, federal court documents reveal that virtually every major Muslim organization in America is a front group for the Brotherhood.
They also show that its U.S. network has raised millions of dollars for Hamas, al-Qaida and other terrorist groups.”The most prominent Islamic organizations in the United States are all controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood,” said FBI veteran John Guandolo, who worked several Brotherhood-related terror cases out of the bureau’s Washington field office as a special agent after 9/11.
Read the inside story about plans to put America under Shariah, in “Muslim Mafia.”While the FBI has cut off ties to some of the well-established organizations, many others continue to participate in outreach programs with the Homeland Security and Justice departments, the former special agent says.

For the Love of Libertyby Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
Recently by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.:
A People’s Uprising Against the Empire When the Egyptian protests first broke out, most Americans celebrated. Though Mubarak’s military must still be circumvented or overthrown, the revolt has spread, like a cleansing fire, to Bahrain, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Jordan, and beyond.What is all this all about? Thanks to Western rule since WWI, this is a region of dictators and domination. Regardless of the spark, that is the issue. This might just be an old story and exactly what it appears to be: a struggle between the liberty of the people and the criminal power of the State.
Somehow, however, this is not obvious to many conservatives. Never mind that the people are denouncing the dictators, the jails, the political persecutions, the torturing and brutality, the disappearances and murders, and demanding the freedom to speak, publish, and live. Surely there must be some nefarious plot behind it all.
The liberty theme was clear enough in Egypt. Here we had multitudes of educated, young, tech-savvy, pro-freedom activists taking a brave stand against a national socialist dictator of 30 years – and the bad guy lost, thereby giving hope to all peoples in the world who struggle against tyranny.
hTe role of the military in the future of the country is still up in the air, and who doubts that another government will have to be overthrown again in the future? Still, victory is victory.
Cairo Moves To Madison: Protesters mass in hallways of Wisconsin state Capitol as debt black hole threatens riots.
Paul Joseph WatsonPrison Planet.comThursday, February 17, 201
Last month we speculated how long it would take for the scenes on the streets of Cairo to be repeated in America. After all, Americans are facing similar levels of economic rape to those that prompted Egyptians to rise up and overthrow 30 year dictator Hosni Mubarak.Now Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan R is making similar comparisons after protesters massed in the hallways of the Wisconsin state Capitol this morning as part of what Matt Drudge dubbed a “day of rage”.
The demonstrators are rallying against a “momentous bill that would strip government workers, including school teachers, of nearly all collective bargaining rights,” reports the Associated Press.The bill asks public sector workers to make a 5.8 percent pension contribution, roughly equal to the national average, along with a 12.6 percent health insurance contribution.
Ryan expressed his opposition to the demands of the protesters, but noted that the Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was now facing, “Riots — it’s like Cairo has moved to Madison these days.”
Similarly, noting that the Governor has threatened to break the union protests by deploying the National Guard, writer Noam Chomsky told Democracy Now that what happened in Egypt was “the beginning of what we need here – democracy uprising.”
Why has the media left untouched the mystery of Mubarak’s reported coma coinciding with his sudden departure? Was his untimely illness a side-effect of the U.S.-backed military coup that removed him from power only days ago?
Are we to believe that the Egyptian dictator’s 30-year political career and personal health failed at the exact same time with no correlation? Alex Jones examines these questions in a special video address.
These questions will remain until we are told the truth, but the implications of yet another suspiciously-timed political ousting, illness/death and/or coup signify something uncomfortably familiar. What they have done to Mubarak has been tried against countless dictators and legitimate rulers alike when they crossed the larger agenda of the New World Order.
The powers that be are trying to have Mubarak’s assets seized while sources indicate that Mubarak himself is likely near death.Meanwhile, globalist interests are utilizing this spreading popular revolt to inflame the Middle East and surround Iran for either covert or overt war.
Further, military control and a suspension of the Parliament and Constitution, not an era of new democracy, has emerged in Egypt. Elections are expected in 6 months. Stay tuned as the situation develops, but don’t wait to see through the globalist-laid plans in the region.
Their intent is known.

Yes, There ARE Liberals Who Want the Terrorists to Take Over
CounterContempt ^ | 14 FEBRUARY 2011 | David Stein

Yes, There ARE Liberals Who Want the Terrorists to Take Over
By David Stein
As the world (and, in particular, the West) nervously follows the course of events in Egypt now that President Hosni Mubarak has been forced out of office, a side-skirmish has broken out among conservatives regarding Glenn Beck’s recent claims that the Egyptian revolution is being driven by an alliance of Islamists and leftists, with the ultimate goal of creating a network of radicalized, Islamist-controlled nations throughout the Middle East (and beyond).
Beck’s recent broadcasts have polarized many on the right, and (predictably) drawn condescending disdain from the left.
It is not the intent of this article to examine Beck’s claims or the controversy surrounding them. Rather, I think it’s important that we understand, in a sober and rational way, that there are indeed some on the left – influential, respectable people – who do genuinely believe that terrorists should be allowed to take over in countries like Egypt………….
I popped the champagne cork to celebrate the Egyptian people’s success in driving out of office the American puppet, Mubarak. However, as I wrote on February 1, Mubarak’s departure doesn’t guarantee that his successor will not find himself wearing the same American harness. As Gerald Celente puts it, “Meet the new boss, same as old boss.”
It remains to be seen how much of a revolution has occurred. Marx and Lenin would be put off by the idealistic jubilation over a spontaneous revolution that caused Mubarak to resign after a couple of weeks of protests. Marx and Lenin would say that nothing has changed. The materialist basis of the old order is still in place: the elites, the police, the army, the bureaucracy, the U.S. Embassy.
Moreover, no vanguard has appeared to lead the revolution to completeness. Marx and Lenin would heap scorn on the prevalent idea that the material interests of the old ruling order, which is still in place, have been brought in line with the material interests of the Egyptian people.
An astute blogger has been putting the pieces together.
T. Monroe-Hamilton of The Noisy Room writes, “Google exec Wael Ghonim utilized Facebook to bring thousands into the streets and set himself up as a political martyr if need be. Youth groups along with Ghonim support ElBaradei and, by default, the Muslim Brotherhood. And who is financing such groups? Well, our old friend George Soros of course. He and ElBaradei both sit on the International Crises Group board of trustees.”
Call it Revolution 2.0. It’s what Google’s Wael Ghonim has named it, claiming their on-line tech-savvy ability to foment demonstrations was what ultimately toppled the Egyptian regime of Hosni Mubarak.
Cairo native and Google marketing exec Wael Ghonim helped organize Revolution 2.0, the anti-Mubarak protests, through “We are All Khaled Said”, the Facebook page that drew more than 70,000 friends.
Monroe-Hamilton observes, “The Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions did not just spontaneously erupt. No …they are well planned, drawn out, militant efforts to bring about revolutionary change on a global scale. This will be done using the Internet and the young, who will be manipulated into revolt, with either legitimate causes, manufactured wrongs or a combination of both. Enter The Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM).”
Just how influential were websites Facebook and Twitter in the rebellion? At least one skeptic argues not so much.

HAS THE U.S. MADE A BIG MISTAKE WITH EGYPT?
by Don Hank
Hosni Mubarak resigned the presidency yesterday after 18 days of protests by the Egyptian people
(Feb. 12, 2011) — Discounting the brief interruption in the Reagan era, American foreign policy since the end of World War II can be summarized by two rules which the State Department has followed with exemplary faithfulness and consistency:
1. Trade allied dictators for enemy dictators.
2. In so doing, trade authoritarian governments for totalitarian governments a thousand times more corrupt.
Sometimes in a direct, brutal, and overt way, sometimes in an indirect, subtle, and underhanded way, and sometimes helping those against whom they had fought until the day before, the United States replaced Chiang Kai-Shek with Mao Zedong, Fulgencio Batista with Fidel Castro, Shah Reza Pahlevi with Ayatollah Khomeini, Ngo Dinh Diem with Ho Chi Minh, and General Lon Nol with Pol Pot. In human terms, the cost of all this tinkering was no less than 80 million deaths. Because of specific differences beyond the scope of this paper I am not including in the list the fact that Americans managed to get rid of Adolf Hitler at the cost of a hundred fold increase in Josef Stalin’s power and half a century of Cold War that cost them dearly.
Now the United States is replacing an ally, Hosni Mubarak, with the superlatively hostile Muslim Brotherhood, mother of all anti-American movements in the Islamic world…

Egypt: Mubarak’s Not The One Who Should ResignThe Rubin Report ^ | Barry RubinPosted on Friday, February 11, 2011 11:59:13 AM by ventanax5This is not a game. This is the fate of the globe. This involves the lives of tens of millions of people. Partisanship and scoring political points is irrelevant.
Forget the spin; forget the ignorance about Egypt and the Middle East by instant experts and sometimes by top intelligence officials. What has happened in the Egypt crisis?
The first point—which I’ve been warning about for more than two years—is the incapability of the Obama Administration on several different levels. Following George W. Bush, many people thought, was an easy act to follow. But the quality of the American leadership has grown worse.There has been an attempt to spin President Husni Mubarak’s speech as some type of victory for the Obama Administration.
Yet within hours this effort collapsed. The nation’s highest intelligence officials showed they had no idea what the Muslim Brotherhood represents, joked that they didn’t know any more than did CNN, and provided completely inaccurate information on the course of events in Egypt.

The Psychology of a President
ChicoER Gate ^ | 2/11/11 | TobyPosted on Friday, February 11, 2011 11:46:23 AM by OneVikeHosted by imgur.com
In order to serve as President of these United States, one must have supreme confidence in one’s self. The question is, “When does that confidence cross into neurosis?
With increasing frequency, articles and editorials are beginning to appear, everywhere from the Boston Globe to the New York Times, denoting the expanding ego of Barrack Obama and his ever-expanding sense of autocracy.
A singular query that seems to be a common thread in the analysis of the stunning Democrat defeat last November is, “Will President Obama’s ego allow him to recognize and understand defeat and moderate his approach and policies, or will he continue in the same vein?”
The President’s misinterpretation of the results of his 2008 presidential election in conjunction with, or because of, his egocentric belief in himself has led to his decreased popularity and legislative failure thus far. Obama’s inherent inability to understand the ‘common’ man has had a direct effect on his ability to govern.
Obama and his administration wrongly assumed, based on the 2008 election returns, they had been given permission to govern as they pleased. Two years later, having accomplished little to nothing of a positive nature, they have yet to realize their error. Obama and his administration wrongly assumed the ‘Obama’ personality and presence would continue to carry the day as it did during his campaign.
Again, they have yet to realize the Obama personality is not enough. The President’s own response to the devastating loss in November is to deride the people for not understanding what he’s trying to do, and to endeavor to make better speeches to get his point across, that being we must all work together while he refuses to do so. Obama and his administration assumed they could ‘hit the ground running,’ and by doing so could pass desired legislation while his administration was still new. Once again, they misjudged the sentiment of the people, the current congressional climate, and their own abilities……………….
“Go Ahead, Make My Day”would be a great opening line for him…

Creating Orwellian Worldview ^ | 2/11/11 | AlaphiahPosted on Friday, February 11, 2011 8:37:01 AM by
Just how close is America from an Egypt like revolution? Travis Smiley and Professor Cornell West speculated the possibilities of America revolting against their government and the economic power establishments in America just like what is going on in Egypt in a recent radio interview.What is so interesting about this February 6, 2011 radio conversation is there is a Black man who is the Leader of America. The American Oligarchy and Plutocracy of which professor West advocates overthrow are both lead by a Black man, president Barry Hussein Soetoro.
The Soetoro stimulus and bailouts that funneled trillions of dollars into the pockets of Bankers and the political upper class left homeowners and the poor stranded. Because of Soetoro’s policies, the poor will remain so or get poorer while the rich get richer in spite of the Soetoro false claims that he is working for the poor.Excerpt Read more at creatingorwellianworld-view-alaphiah.blogspot.com …
The Corner ^ | 10 February 2011 | Barry RubinPosted on Thursday, February 10, 2011 5:28:44 PM by SE Mom
This is a huge lesson in political culture. It also shows just how bad the media coverage has been. Mubarak is not resigning. He’s managing the “reform” process. He is appointing a committee to study constitutional changes. He will decide when there are elections. He is going to “consider” changing the emergency law.
He basically said: I am an Arab warrior, not a community organizer. That speech should be required reading for anyone who wants to understand the Middle East.This is not over yet.
There has been no revolution so far, but the protesters are going to freak out. If Obama has been interpreted as applauding real and major change, either he didn’t know what Mubarak was going to say or he is going to look like a total fool.When Mubarak said he won’t accept outside advice, that was a direct slap at Obama.
Can you imagine the expression on Obama’s face as he watched the speech after being told by his intelligence that Mubarak resigned? After he made a speech about how the youth had forced change? If I had to summarize it, tabloid-style, I’d say: “Mubarak to Obama: Drop Dead!“The regime is not giving in — Mubarak will leave office, perhaps in September, but the regime will fight on.
course, we should not forget that this is a dictator refusing to step down. Mubarak and the army knew that this would inflame the crowd. The army would not have agreed to this unless it was willing to deal with the consequences.

An Egyptian Islamist terrorist organization founded by the Muslim Brotherhood is re-establishing itself amid the political upheaval in Cairo, WND has learned.Both Egyptian and Israeli security officials said the group, Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya, is being reconstituted at the direction of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The officials affirmed Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya serves as the de fact “military” wing of the Brotherhood, which originally founded Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya.Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya is suspected of involvement in the 1981 assassination of Egyptian president Anwar Sadat and it took credit for the 1995 attempted killing of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. It has carried out scores of deadly terrorist attacks, some targeting foreign tourists.Learn Islam’s global agenda to secure all nations under its only religious law:

Beck blasts Kristol: ‘Do anything to keep their little fiefdom together’Politico ^ | February 7, 2011 | Ben SmithPosted on Monday, February 07, 2011 4:19:36 PM by rightwingintelligentsiaFox News’s Glenn Beck lashed out at Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol on his radio show this morning, accusing Kristol of betraying conservatism and missing the significance of what Beck sees as an alliance between Islamism and socialism.
“I don’t even know if you understand what conservatives are anymore, Billy,” Beck said in his extended, sarcastic attack on Kristol. “People like Bill Kristol, I don’t think they stand for anything any more. All they stand for is power. They’ll do anything to keep their little fiefdom together, and they’ll do anything to keep the Republican power entrenched.”–snip–
Beck, in response, defended his broad theories by reading from the work of the Muslim writer Zudhi Jasser, a sharp critic of most Muslim leaders, to argue of the threat from “Islamic socialism.” He also accused Kristol of propping up Hosni Mubarak, of being stuck in 1973, and of failing to see that “we are fighting the forces of evil on this planet.”
“I think he’s still trying to get Bob Dole elected, i’m not really sure,” said Beck.Excerpt Read more at politico.com …

While our nation languishes amidst record food and energy prices, unprecedented underemployment including those excluded from the workforce and economic stagnation, crippling regulations, and an administration in contempt of two court decisions, the media would rather distract us with the Islamist uprising in Egypt. It is imperative that we keep up the pressure on Obama and the Democrats by denying them the opportunity to preclude our attention from more relevant and ominous domestic problems. On the other hand, there is one salient question that we should excogitate from Obama’s handling of the Egyptian insurgency.
If Obama is willing to listen to the protesters of a foreign country due to their grievances from high food and energy prices and an unresponsive government, shouldn’t he accede to the similar demands of his own citizens and resign immediately?

Philanthropist billionaire George Soros has funded opposition organizations in Egypt and throughout the Middle East, where anti-regime chaos has already toppled the pro-Western leader of Tunisia and is threatening the rule of President Hosni Mubarak, a key U.S. ally.Mohamed ElBaradei, one of the main opposition leaders in Egypt, has also sat on the board of an international “crisis management” group alongside Soros and other personalities who champion dialogue with Hamas, a violent offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Brotherhood, which seeks to spread Islam around the world in part by first creating an Islamic caliphate in Egypt, now backs ElBaradai, who has defended the group in the news media the last few weeks.Learn Islam’s global agenda to secure all nations under its only religious law: Get “Islam Rising” on DVD!ElBaradei suspended his board membership in the International Crisis Group, or ICG last week, after he returned to Egypt to lead the anti-Mubarak protests.
Soros is one of eight members of the ICG executive committee.U.S. board members include Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was national security adviser to Jimmy Carter; Samuel Berger, who was Bill Clinton’s national security adviser; and retired U.S. ambassador Thomas Pickering, who made headlines in 2009 after meeting with Hamas leaders and calling for the U.S. to open ties to the Islamist group.Another ICG member is Robert Malley, a former adviser to Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign who resigned after it was exposed he had communicated with Hamas.
WND first reported Malley had long petitioned for dialogue with Hamas.The ICG defines itself as an “independent, non-profit, multinational organization, with 100 staff members on five continents, working through field-based analysis and high-level advocacy to prevent and resolve deadly conflict.”Story continues below

“My fellow citizens of the world and happenstance winners of the reproductive lottery who now reside in the national entity bordered by Canada on the North and Mexico on the south….”TOPICS: Click to Add TopicKEYWORDS: iran; obama; rgypt; Click to Add Keyword[ Report Abuse | Bookmark ]“My fellow citizens of the world and happenstance winners of the reproductive lottery who now reside in the national entity bordered by Canada on the North and Mexico on the south, I address you tonight with clearly written and superbly delivered comments to address unsubstantiated criticism that I am treating the street mobs of Cairo differently than I treated the Green Revolution in Iran.
You need to understand, and let me be perfectly clear about it, that the two situation are completely different.Hosni Mubarak is eighty two years old, dying of cancer and has always believed himself an ally. He has done more to support and assist Israel, the only true stable and democratic government in the Middle East as much as I hate to admit the fact, than any other leader in the region. So, to summarize he’s old,sick, and ally and I can blind side him easily.Iran, on the other hand, has a president who is certifiably crazy, healthy, brutal and will soon have nuclear missles. If I stand up to that guy he’s likely to laugh at me or suggest I go do indecent things with a goat. So he is young, healthy, an enemy and he could belttle me and heap scorn upon me.Based on the careful political and diplomatic calculus involved I have decided that my already bruised ego cannot stand further abuse.
So I have drawn a line in the sand for Mubarak and have decided to pound sand for Mahmoud, may blessings and peace be upon him, because there’s no way he’ll take me seriously.In closing, I have asked three medicine men, two voodoo pacticioners and my dear friend, Reverend wright, to lead us in a dance, the killing of a chicken and a racist diatribe to secure upon me the blessing of the Great Whoever or Whatever you think may be guiding me.Good Night”
