Pulled by advertising bikes over the weekend, the posters use themes from TV’s “Game of Thrones” and “House of Cards” in portraying Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton – and advisor James Carville – as evil, though they don’t indicate exactly what the advertising is for.
Watch Elizabeth “Pocohantas” Warren give a speech to her fold, and you realize she’s one of the rare Democrats who can excite her base in the same way Ted Cruz or Dr. Ben Carson can excite their own. As Politico‘s Katie Glueck wrote on Friday, liberals’ minds may be with Hillary Clinton, but their hearts lie with Warren.
Speaking on Friday at Netroots Nation, a convention for liberal bloggers and activists, Warren got the crowd more fired up than Vice President Joe Biden was able to do the day before. (To be fair, the crowd was in a solemn mood at the time in reaction to the news of the Malaysian passenger plane crash). In her speech, Warren outlined more clearly than other Democrats the social issues that galvanize progressives. Her performance was reminiscent of a certain other young senator in 2008.
McClatchy reported recently on the closing of U.S. embassies in 21 predominantly Muslim countries. The U.S. State Department issued a broad caution about travel during August, which sparked debate over the National Security Agency’s spying on American citizens.
Barack Hussein Obama’s State Department, led by Secretary John F. “Swift Boat” Kerry, attributes the embassy closings to Muslim observance of Ramadan:
Given that a number of our embassies and consulates were going to be closed in accordance with local custom and practice for the bulk of the week for the Eid celebration at the end of Ramadan, and out of an abundance of caution, we’ve decided to extend the closure of several embassies and consulates including a small number of additional posts.
Ramadan is a Muslim holiday, during which terrorists are typically extraordinarily active, reinforcing Islam’s stellar image as a “religion of peace.” The State Department did not say whether or not additional security was being deployed at embassies. Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton withdrew security from the U.S. consulate at Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2011, leading to the death of four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador.
No one in the Obama Regime has yet explained how tracking telephone numbers, capturing email messages, and other spying on American citizens gathers any intelligence that might be useful in combating Muslim terrorists. Yet the NSA spying continues unabated, with many Republican members of Congress, such as Sen. Lindsey Grahamnesty (RINO-SC), defending the unConstitutional surveillance.
WSBT television news broke this story in July 2011 about the U.S. State Department wasting more than $770 million taxpayer dollars, using our money for mosque makeovers and other highly questionable and Islamic “projects” worldwide. Not surprisingly, the old media pretended not to notice.
“Trying to buy respect in the Middle East just shows US weakness,” says Nonie Darwish, a former Muslim born in Egypt. Darwish is the author of Now they Call Me ‘Infidel’ and other books, as well as many articles like Why Muslims Must Hate Jews, posted on American Spectator. Islamic leaders have called for her murder, because she escaped Islam. President Barack Hussein Obama’s foreign policy amounts to nothing more than appeasement, she says.
At the direction of Obama and Secretary Hillary Clinton, the State Department is wasting hundreds of millions our our hard-earned dollars to pay for everything from mosque building repairs and remodeling to Internet service and computers. The report documents graft and corruption worldwide, with U.S. officials spreading the money around in far-flung places like Cyprus, Mali and Tajikistan.
“We came, we saw, he died.” And that from our illustrious Secretary of State? Make no mistake: The world is better off without a ruthless dictator like Gadhafi.
But compare this with the capture and subsequent trial of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. Saddam was convicted and executed. By contrast, Gadhafi was murdered in cold blood by a roving band of undisciplined, screaming thugs with AKs and pistols.
All indications are that post-Gadhafi Libya will be run by the Muslim Brotherhood or worse. Those running the US government today are just not serious people of substance.
