Do You Know What
is Happening in Mali?

Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Prof. Phyllis Chesler

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/19/2013 2:05:15 PM

During the third debate of the 2012 presidential campaign, Mitt Romney talked about Mali and the danger al-Qaeda represented there. The Obamamedia laughed and derided Romney, carrying Barack Obama’s water and continued advancing the fraud that Obama had decimated al-Qaeda, even though al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists had taken over an American consulate and killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya just weeks prior. Surprise!!!! Al-Qaeda in Mali is a serious enough threat that the French, The French!, have invaded Mali to fight them there. It looks like Romney was indeed

Comments:
This is not an attempt to rehash our last election. It is a wake-up call to those who think Al Qaeda is dead [like 0bama claims] and that we are through fighting them when moving troops out of Middle East. No mention of Iran who we claim, are attacking our major banking computer websites recently. Because Mali overthrown in a coup, we must wait for "elected" government to ask for help [Ha, ha]. Al Qaeda wants an Islamic state that strictly follows Sharia law. Algeria where current fighting in oil-fields may be next.

We know that Romney raised this issue in October and was denounced as the liar of the year by the palace media. There are more Malis in the waiting and we are not going to hear about them until concealment is unavoidable. Thats what we voted for.

Obama, you are a Mikey Mouse, Milquetoast, sissy-faced, rose water squirting liberal. Get off your skinny backside and act like The President of the United States (for once in your potato-string backbone life) and deal with this. American citizens and Ambassadors are being slaughtered in North Africa.

The perception that Obama is simply naive or weak in dealing with Islamists is a continuing misconception, and a dangerous one, because it doesn´t address the true hazard...this guy is consciously and cleverly facilitating the creation of the worldwide caliphate. It´s inescapable if you simply track his behavior across the globe.

Uprisings that threaten an existing Islamist state (Iran, for example) are deliberately ignored. Uprisings that depose a West-friendly or neutral government and replace it with an Islamist one are openly supported and publicly encouraged (Egypt, Libya, etc.).

When the heck is Congress going to step up and do its duty? This guy must be stopped.

1. Impeach the corrupt enemedia, the bastid liars!
2.Impeach that Kenyan mulatto foreign exchange student and his demented VP liar!
3. Send Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein, Reid, Bloomberg, Cuomo, Hagel, Kerry, Clinton, Christie, Schumer, Weiner, and all other lefty liars straight to hell!
4. Place Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio in the White House and give them advisors like Giuliani, Gingrich, Ryan, Bolton, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Rush Limbaugh!
5. Restore all cuts to the military. Reduce the allocations to welfare recipients and give it instead to the troops!
6. Fire every public school employee and begin a re-hire marathon based on actual "well-qualified applicants" with no affirmative action or race criteria...just the smartest, and especially look for American veterans who want to teach and counsel students in order to make them intelligent! No more baby-sitting these dumbasses by chair-warming underachievers!

There, I fixed America!

Obama initiated & his minons trained the Muslim Brotherhood his tactics for community organizing as a cover for The Arab Springs, lying that it was locals seeking democracy.

Of course, that lie doesn´t work when overthrowing an existing democracy so the leader becomes the evil one.

Mali, Alberia, India,Somalia & others battle the same Arab Springs but the MSM win´t cover them.

Now that the Islamist raiders have gained power in Somalia, Hillary is scheduled to bestow upon the invaders the title of Legitimate Government for Somalia this week!

The only ray of sunshine in all this is that the UN, Cameron & Hollande now know exactly who Obama is.

I hate to be picky, but "decimated" means decreased by a tenth (that is 90% still remain). It is quite possible that al-Qaeda has been decimated. However, a huge problem remains...wonder how long we wait until we get serious about it.

Mitt was right.
Our pretend professor thinks he´s destroyed terrorism.
Our noble peas prize winner thinks he and his alchemists at the Federal Reserve can create money out of thin air.
Our great and industrious autobiographer thinks he can use children to take away our rights under the Constitution.
Our Obamaham Lincoln has encouraged half of the American populace to "get in their faces".
Say what you will about Mitt Romney, and believe me we´ve heard it all, but this is a decent man and he had a chance to turn the ship around.

This all tracks back to Egypt and Libya. Now those weapons are all over N Africa and Syria. And it isn´t just this president, but also morons like McCain and Lindsay Graham who are accomplices in it with him. Remember McCain on the floor of the Senate attacking Michelle Bachmanna and she was right about muslim influence at the state department. Hagel will fit in just fine along with Brenan. Now where are the Republicans who will back Bachmann and raise a fuss about any of this?

His administration and the complicit media are doing it one step at a time. We have given him four more years to destroy America as it was founded.

Yep. And remember how the esteemed media "fact checkers" called one of Romney´s claims the

"LIE OF THE YEAR"

and now, shazaam, it´s January 15 or so, and shucks, the rich guy who killed the lady with cancer and cheated on his taxes and has money in (gasp) the Cayman Islands ... was RIGHT!

By the way, I was in the Caymans a couple weeks ago on a cruise. The bus driver was telling us that no, the Caymans aren´t a place to stash money (it´s a British colony and the British govt. would have problems with that) ... but a better place is a place called DELAWARE. Isn´t that big f´ing deal of a Vice President from that joint?

Question. What are we to do when the Republicans go belly up on every issue that is important in furthering Obama´s agenda? Don´t say, we´ll defeat them at the ballot box. By the time 2014 comes around, Obama will have what he needs. He is working on gun control now, but his main goal is immigration. If he is successful, it´s over. We will never be able to defeat the democrats again. I realize this question is silly, but why won´t the RNC get their act together and formulate a plan or a strategy to fight the tyranny that is consuming this nation? It can only be one thing, they are complicent. We have no one strong and courageous enough to make a stand. The Republicans are so worried about getting the blame. By doing nothing history is going to blame them for the loss of liberty and freedom because could not bring themselves to fight. If that is the case, and it appears it is, those cowards are dancing on the graves of every man and woman who fought and died to preserve the freedom they enjoy.

It´s going to get worse before it gets better in America. That´s why it is imperative that we assert our 2nd Amendment rights and all that goes with it.

Otherwise, once the islamoterrorists win the smaller battles, we will become Mali on a bigger scale. The terrorist in the White House and her puppet barry will have given them the key to the gates.

Mitt was right.
Meanwhile back in SodØm:
The second inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th President of the United States is scheduled to take place in a private swearing-in ceremony on Sunday, January 20 and in a public ceremony on Monday, January 21, 2013. The inauguration will mark the beginning of the second term of Barack Hussein Obama as President and Joe Dopey Biden as Vice President.

I was not a Romney supporter at the start, but he represented our best hope for a way out of this mess. And he understand money, which our fiscally-challenged POTUS absolutely does not.

The MSM, written and voiced, did an excellent job of making the ´low information voter´ think that the lies they were being told by the Democrat Liberals were the truth and the truth that the Republican Conservatives were voicing were lies.

The Democrat Liberals and MSM must have studied how Hitler propagandist did it and took all the pages from that book to use themselves.

Reply 36, Romney made his charge about Mali and Obama said it was not true. What was Romney supposed to say: "TIs too!"

Not only was Romney called a liar on Mali but the Fact Check people claimed he lied about the Italian car company´s intention to move the making of jeeps from the US to China. Fiat lied to FactCheck and Fiat´s word was accepted as truth. Even some Republicans said that Romney lied.

And to the poster who is tired of hearing about Romney and can´t we stop it, no, we can´t. Not until the record has been set straight. Some are quick to fault the GOP for not being tenacious enough but can´t be bothered to listen when a point is pursued.

Romney knew what was happening over there and was rejected by the American electorate, while Obama laughed, and fraudulently told the American people through his media allies that he had decimated the enemy over there and was re-elected. Obviously the reality is that there is something terribly wrong in dog patch!

# 27 claims that Republicans are not fighting and going belly up.
Ahem..many Republicans have spoken out forcefully on this situation in the past few days.
The national media does not cover Republicans truthfully and will rarely report on their statements.
Unfortunately, the same can be said of some right wing talkers.
If a Republican condemns Obama and the media and right wing talkers don´t report it,
apparently it didn´t happen.
Legislatively , Republicans cannot actually do much , since they lost 8 House seats
and now have a much decreased majority.
Republicans lost 25 of the 33 Senate seats up this past November.
Democrats now control the Senate 55 to 45.
Demanding they " fight " sounds nice, but, no one ever presents a strategic plan on how to accomplish that legislatively
considering the math ,
the Constitution and the powerful anti Republican media.
Rep Mike Rogers ( R-Mich ) was on CNN blasting Obama ´s Algerian Al Queda disaster.
“You have to have an overarching plan that puts pressure on these groups.
You can´t just fire a few missiles and pack up and go home and hope for the best.”
Rep Ileana Ros-Lehtinen ( R- FL ) told The Hill
“I´m glad that the president woke up, finally."
New House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said the terrorist attack in Algeria
was “the latest demonstration of a large and growing radical movement across North Africa.”
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas)- “Today, North Africa is the next frontier in the war on terror ” and
“Al Qaeda´s North African franchises have become emboldened by our timid response to Benghazi..."

The Mali guys are a barrel of laughs. They have outlawed music. If you have a cell phone and it rings with a ringtone they take it and maybe you. No music. It is a product of the evil west. The only ringtones permitted are verses from the Koran. There is a singer from Mali and they state if they catch her they will cut her tongue out so she can never sing again. I hate to come across as narrow minded and intolerant but I really hate these idiots. They destroy anything western or non Islam even if it is relic from antiquity. If they get the pyramids they are gone too.

#41 may have inadvertently made #27’s point with his list of Republican representatives quoted on TV and in articles. Of the four listed, the highest-ranking member was the new Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs committee. Where’s the “leadership” including Boehner and McConnell, their Whips, and caucus leaders?

What we have here are some good responses made by lone representatives, usually from conservative districts, but without any strong backup from the “leadership”. This allows the GOP to be on-the-record to prove that they’re “conservative enough”, but they will cover their intended inaction with complaints that the mean old media (including the right-wing talkers!) won’t give them any airtime.

Why not this for a strategic plan? The “leadership” needs to make the rounds of the Sunday “news” shows, they need to hold press conferences on the steps of the Capitol, and to write op-ed pieces for all the major newspapers. Every representative should be on their local TV “news” shows and doing op-ed in their local papers. They must stand up and make the case against Obama loud and constant. Where’s the RNC? Why aren’t they running ads like the NRA?

We’re expected to believe people smart enough to achieve elite positions in the GOP are somehow thwarted because they cannot overcome “the math, the Constitution, and the powerful anti Republican media.” If they’ve got a math problem its because they don’t stand for anything. We’re not asking them to “overcome” the Constitution but to use it and defend it. They’ve had 30 years experience dealing with the “powerful anti Republican media” and they’re still victims of it? Smart people, indeed.

#27 is right. Collusion with the big government statists is the only explanation.

Obama signs Ted Cruz bill into law,
but says he won´t enforce it
Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke    Original Article

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement. "Nevertheless, as President [George H.W.] Bush also observed,

Jeb Bush’s recent musings on a possible presidential run—and his comments on immigration, rankling many in the Republican grassroots—sparked a familiar clash. Jeb, the establishment’s preferred candidate, some said, could neutralize the fiery GOP base in 2016. Conservatives shot back that Jeb would depress conservative turnout, and his last name would play poorly with the general electorate. It’s a constant tension: The base is unhappy with the establishment, and vice versa. But this year, the marriage of convenience between the grassroots of the party and its donor class has emerged so battered from eight years of

The comments by Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi comes as the talks face an informal July 20 deadline to hammer out a final deal to limit Iran´s ability to build nuclear arms in exchange for ending the crippling economic sanctions it faces.

Washington - As President Barack Obama travels through Asia this coming week, he will find a region that’s warily watching the crisis in Ukraine through the prism of its own territorial tensions with China. Each of the four countries on Obama’s itinerary — Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — has a dispute with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas. (Snip) Administration officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, have taken a tougher line on the territorial issues in recent weeks, sternly warning China against the use of military force and noting that the U.S. has not formally taken sides on the question

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Behind Qatar´s bet on
the Muslim Brotherhood

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
