MSNBC Claims It’s The Republican’s Fault The ObamaCare Launch Was a Disaster….
Oh, MSNBC. We expect you to cry about racism at every turn, to support jihadists because of ‘culture’ or ‘Islamophobia’ or something and kneel over and pucker up everytime Obama twerks in your general direction but no one in their right mind can even pretend to think that the Republicans had anything to do with that cluster that is ObamaCare.
I wonder what MSNBC watching liberals think of their ‘news’ station treating them like their chin drooling idiots who will believe anything they tell them.
Yesterday, the White House released a photo of the Child King and his court inside the situation room and, supposedly, discussing the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
A CBS News reporter noticed the very curious absence of the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, from the gaggle on sycophants bumbling around the table and went looking for him and, maybe not so surprisingly, found him on his wife’s yacht.
When the State Department was asked about where Kerry was, they reacted in the typical Obama Administration fashion….they lied.
But the State Department said Kerry was not aboard a boat on Wednesday and has spent the day working the phones on Egypt. “Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4 a.m., Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Unfortunately for them, another reporter had the common sense to visit the playground of the well-off and took a picture of Kerry working the State Department hotline…and when I say ‘State Department hotline’ I mean playing on his yacht.
Again, in using the typical Obama Playbook when caught in an “oops”…and when I say ‘oops’ I mean a lie…the State Department responded by saying, “oh…well…uh…okay. Yeah, he was on his yacht but only ‘briefly’.”
Where Kerry was isn’t so important. But the fact that the State Department lies so facilely, and has absolutely no compunction about doing so, does matter.
Of course, “briefly” is another way, again of trying to minimize, when it would appear it was not “brief” at all.
It is why they believe they can get away with lying over matters of great significance, like Benghazi.
But that was yesterday. Today is a new day and, you’d think, our leaders would learn from their mistakes and turn their attention to the matters that they get paid to pay attention to.
Not so much when it comes to people who work for the Obama Administration.
Mosheh, a CBS Producer, saw Kerry on the boat again today.
Likely, it was only “briefly” and doubtless, he is working on Egypt as he steers the boat his wife inherited from her dead husband.
CONGRESSMAN PETE SESSIONS (R-TEXAS): What we’re trying to accomplish is to end eligibility of food stamps that compete against those families, those needy families that we talked about, for rapists, pedophiles and murderers. Whether rapists, pedophiles or murderers will be eligible. But it’s pedophiles, murderers, rapists, those who have, should have enough money.
What he really said:
SESSIONS: The President’s inability to lead is what is causing this country to have massive unemployment and a GDP rate of about 1.5 percent. It is a nightmare for people.
So I do understand that we have those in our midst who are in trouble. I don’t think this bill is ever aimed at, and we shouldn’t try and say that it would be aimed at, the disabled, mothers with children. That’s not what we’re trying to accomplish here. What we’re trying to accomplish is to end eligibility of food stamps that compete against those families, those needy families that we talked about, for rapists, pedophiles and murderers. That’s why you see members of the Democratic Party coming down here today and they’re saying we’re going to take it away from other people. No – rapists, pedophiles, and murderers.
MSNBC is a network full of shameless idiots who treat both of their viewers like they’re stupid.
But then…anyone who watches MSNBC and takes them seriously is stupid.
The watchdog who tracks the billions of taxpayer dollars spent to rebuild Afghanistan says government officials have tried to silence him because they think he’s embarrassing the White House and Afghan President Hamid Karzai by pointing out the waste and fraud.
Most transparent administration ever!!
What could go wrong?
Hamas is lobbying for a stricter enforcement of Islamic law in Gaza – including provisions to cut off the hands of thieves, and execution of individuals who cheat on their spouses. A report in the Al-Hayat dailynewspaper said that Hamas expects the new regulations to take effect in the coming months, after introduction of the legislation in the PA parliament.
Existing laws mete out the death penalty to individuals convicted of murder, spying, homosexuality, or selling land to Jews. The new legislation will expand the crimes for which individuals can be executed to include disloyalty to a spouse – having sexual relations outside the context of marriage. Other provisions of the law include chopping off the right hand of a thief (along with at least a seven year jail sentence), and lashes for a large number of “crimes,” including drinking alcoholic beverages and gambling. All the punishments are derived from sharia, Islamic law.
In addition, girls age 15 will be able to decide to marry on their own, without requiring permission from their parents. Individuals age ten and over are considered adults under the new legislation, and are subject to the full force of the law for offenses.
Isn’t this just peaceful and so worthy of respect? Let’s keep laws that allow the government to murder gay people and people who sell land to Jews. What a tolerant, freedom of religion loving group of misunderstood, victimized “Palestinians”.
But on the plus side, at least little girls, who would be too young to drive in the US, can now marry and do the dirty with the 50 year-old men who buy them from their families now.
And who hasn’t said that 10 year-old kids should receive the same punishment as an adult? I mean, it’s not like they aren’t completely mentally developed and are totally aware of the consequences of their actions. So what if he only shoplifted a Snicker’s bar from the local bazaar…off with his hand!!!
These people and the idiots who support them are animals.
The 3am phone call came on September 11, 2012….and both Hillary and Obama ignored it.
Gun crime has plunged in the United States since its peak in the middle of the 1990s, including gun killings, assaults, robberies and other crimes, two new studies of government data show.
Looks like the media, fear-mongers and low forehead sycophants have done a good job of snowballing the average citizen, so far.
American Middle East analysts often claim that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate organization, nothing like the more radical Salafis. If true, what do we make of the fact that the most intolerant, anti-American, hate-filled Salafis and jihadis also happen to be the greatest and staunchest supporters of Morsi? Doesn’t such unequivocal support indicate shared ideologies and goals?
Consider: A few weeks ago, while discussing the ongoing protests against Egypt’s President Muhammad Morsi—himself a leader of the Brotherhood—Sheikh Abdullah Badr, an Al Azhar trained scholar and professor of Islamic exegesis, made the following assertion on live TV:
“I swear to Allah, the day those who went out [to protest], and at their head, the [Coptic] Christians—I say this at the top of my voice—the day they think to come near Dr. Morsi, I—we—will pop their eyes out, and the eyes of all those who support them, even America; and America will burn, and all its inhabitants. Be assured, the day Dr. Morsi is touched by any hand whichever, and connected to whomever, by Allah it will be the last day for us. We will neither leave them, nor show them any mercy.”
Such a peaceful and religious people. Aren’t you glad Obama decided to support them, give them money and weapons and take them on as advisers?
Oh, there’s nothing to worry about with such pious people as this as our ‘allies’.
A mass exodus of Christians is currently underway. Millions of Christians are being displaced from one end of the Islamic world to the other.
We are reliving the true history of how the Islamic world, much of which prior to the Islamic conquests was almost entirely Christian, came into being.
The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recently said: “The flight of Christians out of the region is unprecedented and it’s increasing year by year.” In our lifetime alone “Christians might disappear altogether from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Egypt.”
Ongoing reports from the Islamic world certainly support this conclusion: Iraq was the earliest indicator of the fate awaiting Christians once Islamic forces are liberated from the grip of dictators.
In 2003, Iraq’s Christian population was at least one million. Today fewer than 400,000 remain—the result of an anti-Christian campaign that began with the U.S. occupation of Iraq, when countless Christian churches were bombed and countless Christians killed, including by crucifixion and beheading.
The 2010 Baghdad church attack, which saw nearly 60 Christian worshippers slaughtered, is the tip of a decade-long iceberg.
Now, as the U.S. supports the jihad on Syria’s secular president Assad, the same pattern has come to Syria: entire regions and towns where Christians lived for centuries before Islam came into being have now been emptied, as the opposition targets Christians for kidnapping, plundering, and beheadings, all in compliance with mosque calls telling the populace that it’s a “sacred duty” to drive Christians away.
In October 2012 the last Christian in the city of Homs—which had a Christian population of some 80,000 before jihadis came—was murdered. One teenage Syrian girl said: “We left because they were trying to kill us… because we were Christians…. Those who were our neighbors turned against us. At the end, when we ran away, we went through balconies. We did not even dare go out on the street in front of our house.” […]
In Mali, after a 2012 Islamic coup, as many as 200,000 Christians fled. According to reports, “the church in Mali faces being eradicated,” especially in the north “where rebels want to establish an independent Islamist state and drive Christians out… there have been house to house searches for Christians who might be in hiding, churches and other Christian property have been looted or destroyed, and people tortured into revealing any Christian relatives.” At least one pastor was beheaded.
Gosh! I wonder what people would say if Christians were persecuting, killing and driving Muslims out of their countries by the hundreds of thousands.
But the reverse is just a-okay. You know…because Muslims are so misunderstood, peaceful and culture…or something.
For some reason, my Templar icon is twitching.
Barack Obama in a speech shortly after the Benghazi attack in which he vowed to bring the terrorists “to justice”.
In unrelated news: Two years later, new reports indicate:
The Ansar al Sharia Brigade, the Islamist terror group linked to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, continues to operate freely in that Libyan city, according to U.S. military officials.
The group remains active in the Mediterranean port city, operating patrols and checkpoints, and earlier this year reached an agreement with other Islamist groups allowing it to operate openly, said military officials familiar with intelligence reports from North Africa.
So much for ‘bringing those folks to justice”. But then, that vow did come from Obama’s mouth so we should have known it was a lie from the get-go.
From Daily Beast:
The volatile country, still reeling after the Benghazi attack and several recent bombings, has become a magnet for al Qaeda terrorists determined to sow instability in the region.
“Libya has become AQIM’s headquarters,” says the intelligence source, adding that in just the last few weeks three new al Qaeda camps have opened in southern Libya.
In his usual short-sightedness, Obama was part of the circumstances that have led to a resurgence of al-Qaeda and has not only allowed, but also supported, the cause of radical Islam within the Middle East.
On March 15, 2011, Obama took the podium and announced to the world that he had authorized US Military action in Libya.
“Today I authorized the armed forces of the United States to begin a limited military action in Libya,” Obama. “That action has now begun.”
A few months later, Hillary Clinton found it to be pretty hilarious when she received word that the Libyan dictator, Muammar Qaddafi, had been beaten to death and drug through the streets.
"We came, we saw, he died," she laughed when told of news reports of Qaddafi’s death by an aide in between formal interviews.
And what was the result of their chuckle-worthy actions? The murder of four Americans in Benghazi and the establishment of terror training camps in a previously somewhat secure country and the return of al-Qaeda.
Just like the return of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, who has spawned and supports terror organization to this date, Obama has not only supported but facilitated the return of vocal enemies of America and, even now, is planning on arming known terrorists, and lay the groundwork for future terror training facilities and bases of operations in Syria.
Providing aid and comfort to our enemies is no longer treasonous under the Obama administration but is, instead, well practiced policy.
Possible future votes trump American citizen’s safety according to the Obama administration.
From The Daily Caller:
In part three of three of his six-part interview with The Daily Caller, National ICE Council president Chris Crane explained what President Obama’s actions on immigration and blind eye to illegal immigration has made it nearly impossible for ICE agents to enforce the law.
“We can’t have Presidents of the United States picking and choosing which laws will and will not be enforced.” Crane said.
Crane went on to explain how President Obama’s de facto repeal of immigration enforcement has led to serious and dangerous criminals being set free. “What the Obama Administration has ICE agents now doing is we now go into jails and prisons looking for illegal aliens inside of those facilities who have committed and been convicted of crimes. So we apply the Dream Act not to kids, in schools, but to adult inmates and have to ask them basically ‘Do you qualify for President Obama’s Dream Act?’ When they tell us ‘Yes we qualify’ we can’t even require them to give us any kind of proof, a transcript, or anything like that. We can’t detain them for investigation to substantiate the claims, we simply have to release them to the street. They walk out the back door of the jail as ‘Dreamers.’ There is nothing we can do about that.”
While it should be no surprise to anyone who has been following the Benghazi fiasco, this should be another indicator that Obama and his crew do not give two licks for the safety of the American people. Just like Obama left four Americans to be murdered in Libya for no apparent reason other than it would contradict his ‘al-Qaeda is on their heels” statement and cost him votes during the 2012 election, Obama is willing to jeopardize the safety of Americans for no reason other than generating votes and a positive image in the Hispanic community.
Besides his habit of choosing what laws he will enforce, while ignoring others that will not benefit him during elections, he is now willing to release convicted criminals back out on the streets…even though those criminals are here illegally to begin with.
But he has ‘swag’ and hangs with Jay-Z so it’s all good, I guess.
…You know, to make sure everyone “pays their fair share”.
Because so many 1%ers do their shopping online.
If the US Airforce did all airline food, it would be strawberries dipped in dark chocolate and grilled chicken salads all round.
Unfortunately this luxury is reserved for top US politicians alone, as new documents detailing Nancy Pelosi’s travel expenses reveal.
The former House Speaker was showered with a cornucopia of gourmet food and alcohol as she travelled over 90,000 miles around the world in just nine months last year – all courtesy of the US Airforce (USAF).
On one overseas excursion, her office even wrote to the USAF asking for strawberries dipped in dark chocolate as a birthday treat.
The documents, uncovered by political corruption watchdog Judicial Watch, reveal that the US taxpayer was billed for $101,429 in Mrs Pelosi’s in-flight services over a period of two years.
