Scandal: The filmmaker blamed for the terrorist attack on our Libyan consulate and the murder of our ambassador goes to jail for an "unrelated" matter. If you believe that, you also believe al-Qaida is on its heels. If the Obama administration had heeded warnings from Ambassador Chris Stevens that, after two previous incidents, the consulate in Benghazi was surrounded by terrorist training camps and couldn´t withstand an organized attack, Mark Basseley Youssef might still be a free man today. If requests for enhanced security had not been repeatedly denied, or if
Just curious, but how does this offense compare to the illegal immigration status of an uncle and an aunt of the president. Surely we aren´t using different standards for different classes of people. Wasn´t there some silly attitude that we are a nation of laws and not of men?
There is a reason you have to search the internet to see a picture of this Mark Basseley Youssef (aka Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, aka Sam Bacile). The media would very much prefer you imagine him as a 50 year old southern white supremacist or perhaps a Jew, rather than an Egyptian identity theft criminal.
Mark Basseley Yousse is only today´s Emmanuel Goldstein for the daily two minute hate session. Every one has committed a felony or two by now if you dig deeply enough so there is more than enough reason for any enemy of Barack to go to prison if he needs a scapegoat to cover his bony rump. And there are more than enough Good Germans, er, Americans who are willing to do this kind of railroading. I bet there were parties last night or tonight to celebrate a job well done. Have a beer and mock us, folks. You just got four more years of the America you voted for.
The sentence is a warning shot across the bow of anyone daring to exercise their first amendment rights when said rights go against the policies of this Administration.
It should be a warning to talk radio and ANY conservative outlet for news and commentary. This videographer did nothing wrong but tyranny is this Administration´s best tool -- the threat of jail time for speaking your mind should send chills down the spines of any conservative website, radio talk show host, TV show, newsletteer, blog or any other source that/who says anything this Dictator doesn´t like.
President Jarrett will see to it that there will be an Enemies List as long as your arm and those individuals will be targeted. It has already begun; look at the Democrats calling for Rush Limbaugh to be shut down. They´ve got the truth and we can´t have that, can we?
Lets face it, Obama got elected based on perception. A perception within a people that have been conditioned by marketing and the media under direction of corporate greed. Logic, reasoning and evidence are so not with it, so archaic, so narrow minded, so bigoted and besides, it requires thought and effort. American´s slothful lives have made us overweight physically and brain dead mentally. The typical American today can´t make a choice or decision without the media telling them what to buy, what to think and what to do; so voting has become nothing more than an exercise in obedience to their masters. Americans don´t know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil or a lie from the truth. They turn on the tube and let all the subtle suggestions of morality and values permeate their empty brains until they are nothing more than walking zombies unable to take care of themselves, dead mentally. They are illiterate, can´t navigate through life, can´t add two numbers together, can´t communicate without a smart phone and would starve to death if there wasn´t a safety net from a vote seeking politician there to save them. Americans have redefined freedom and liberty to their perverted limits until they believe they can do whatever they want without consequences and with responsibility, because corporate greed has enabled them to do so; and the price has been the destruction of America from within.
Americans have been conditioned and are controlled by the media which is controlled by corporate greed and Obama is their Front Man.
#17 - Wait-a-hold-it... Real Americans don´t want free stuff. It is all the dumbed-down, barely aware, dope-smoking, self-absorbed, media-influenced, celebrity-obsessed, busted-ass, Kool-Aid drinking, uninformed, government-dependent zombies with hordes of couch-potato kids going to school for free breakfast, lunch, dinner and baby-sitting (who still can´t read, write or count) who want the free stuff or they´ll burn the MF place down. Real Americans work for their "stuff"!
The guy in prison is a career criminal. If he were out he´d be stealing more money through identity theft. He may be a patsy, but he was a convicted felon before the Benghazi terror incident, and he did violate his parole.
The videographer may well be the first political prisoner of Zippy’s second term, but I’m skeptical he’s the innocent victim of happenstance that’s being assumed.
We know that the Muslim Brotherhood have been “visiting” the White House throughout the first term, and that Obama supported and facilitated the “Arab Spring” in both Egypt and Libya while appearing nonplussed at the MB government takeovers. We also know that Al Queda (wholly owned subsidiary of the MB) planned and orchestrated the riot and takeover of the Cairo Embassy to coincide with the military attack on the “diplomatic mission” in Benghazi. A trigger incident was needed that provided an “offense” for which Obama could apologize and not have to publicly identify the true nature of the “incident”, i.e.; a terrorist attack against U.S. soil on the 11th anniversary of 9-11-01. These people would not wait for some opportune “anti-muslim” video or surf the internet hoping to find one. I submit they manufactured one.
IIRC the storyline described Youssef as an Egyptian immigrant with U.S. citizenship and several fraud convictions. He was also supposed to be a Coptic devout enough to defend his faith by making a video against Islam at the request a wealthy Christian businessman in Egypt. As a cover story this places the blame specifically on Christians and Free Speech, presenting a public focal point that allows persecution of Christians and limits on the 1st Amendment.
Isn’t it odd that a wealthy Christian businessman in Egypt would fund such a project in the middle political upheaval and not be taking care of his family and business assets? I think the “videographer” is a MB agent. Did anyone acknowledge this man? Not is priest? Not fellow parishioners? We do know he is a criminal that emigrated from Egypt. That could make him an opportune operative willing to take the public fall. He was swept from the public within 48 hours of the Benghazi attack being announced, held incommunicado until the election, now convicted and sentenced in pubic. However, I don’t think he’s off to prison. I think he’s now part of the islam witness protection program. Removing tin foil hat.
Oh dear. I wonder where the first Konzentrationslager will be established. Maybe there are a few barbed wire enclosures remaining out west, relics of Roosevelt´s adventure in Japanese-American population control.
The Konzntrationlager is the prison that Obama bought in Sept ´12 in Illinois. Itis brand new, nver been occupied, and he bought it with some Presidential fund I never had heard that our Presidnets had access to. Typically spending bills come fromt he HOuse. But Obama just did and Executive Order on it. Just horrible.
Political Correctness: Its force structure decimated by sequestration and budget cuts, the Marine Corps considers exchanging its proud and honored look for hats similar to the gendarmes who direct traffic in Paris. If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June. But those who remain will at least be fashion-conscious if a proposal for changes in their dress headgear goes forward. Men and women in the Marines
Junk Science: Al Gore, patron saint of climate fraud, argues with Australia´s prime minister that its brushfires are not caused by warming and that the record shows the koala bear, like the polar bear, is quite safe. They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle. And they occurred in February 1851 during one of the coldest years on record. Bushfires have been part of Australian life for centuries
Energy: The Golden State´s governor has signed legislation that regulates but does not ban the technology that has sparked an energy boom nationwide — and which may yet restore the state to solvency. If any state were to ban hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, the process that releases oil and natural gas trapped in porous shale formations, one would think it would be California. Gov. Jerry Brown, who leads the government in a state that hosted Solyndra and embraces endangered bird-chopping wind turbines,
Scandal: A deadly battle involving grenades between a drug cartel and Mexican police has added to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects that U.S. officials watched but did not stop. The same Obama administration officials responsible for letting thousands of weapons walk into Mexico and right into the hands of drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious also passed on several opportunities to arrest and prosecute an arms smuggler who was busy supplying the cartels with hand grenades. This according to a report by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, the one reporter
Corruption: The crash-prone government health-care site asks applicants if they want to register to vote as they try to sign up for ObamaCare. By sheer coincidence, a plurality of the uninsured are likely Democratic voters. Call it Motor Voter on steroids — the piggybacking of voter registration to an otherwise unrelated government function. Those trying to navigate Healthcare.gov, a website that looks and functions as if designed by the department of motor vehicles, are being asked if they want to register to vote just in time for crucial 2014 midterm elections
Regulation: From lost jobs to fewer hours to premium hikes that would make a loan shark drool, Barack Obama´s home state is a case study in why the first rule in health care reform, as in medicine, should be to do no harm. The president and his cohorts in the media have long accused Republicans of being out of touch with ordinary people. Remember the concocted story about President Bush the elder being so out of touch he was unfamiliar with supermarket bar-code scanners? But it´s President Obama who´s out of touch with ordinary people
Health Care: In a stunning admission, our Health and Human Services secretary admits ObamaCare is part of the fundamental transformation of America away from a free market in anything to a nanny state on steroids. Maybe Kathleen Sebelius was being sarcastic, or maybe she thought it might be a good way to reach the "young invincibles" who feel they had better things to do with their money than enroll in ObamaCare. But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart´s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare´s train wreck of a rollout.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
