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.

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.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

What Your Sleeping Position

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

A French lab has lost more than 2,000 vials containing fragments of the deadly SARS virus, which killed nearly 800 people in a 2003 epidemic across four continents. The Pasteur Institute in Paris, France announced this week that it realized it was missing the vials and contacted the country’s National Security Agency of Medicines and Health Products to conduct an investigation on April 8, according to a news release. Although the fragments are not dangerous, they do raise concerns by revealing the lab’s vulnerability, said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville,

Cities and counties won’t be allowed to raise the minimum wage under a law signed Monday by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R). Under the new law, which passed the state legislature on party-line votes earlier this year, cities would be prohibited from raising the minimum wage above the $7.25 federal mark, and they would be prevented from requiring employers to provide sick days to their employees. Backers of the new law said differing wages in different cities would be a hardship for businesses. In a statement, Fallin said different wage laws would hurt job creation. In recent years, cities and localities across the country have unilaterally

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

As pro-Russia protests spread in eastern Ukraine, a strip of striped orange-and-black fabric has become as ubiquitous as the armed men in unmarked military fatigues. Its name is the Ribbon of Saint George. Imbued with history, it’s a powerful symbol in the ongoing information battle over Ukraine. For Russians it´s a mark of allegiance to the state – both the fearsome, expansionist Russian state of old and its modern successor under President Vladimir Putin. When pro-Russia rallies took place last December, seeking to rival the Maidan demonstrations in Kiev, very few ribbons were seen.

UNICEF’s new campaign, “Poo2Loo,” targets India’s public defecation problem with a series of music videos, pranks and advertisements featuring a giant feces mascot. According to the campaign, 620 million Indians are defecating in public every day. “That’s half the population dumping over 65 million kilos of poo out there every day. If this poo continues to be let loose on us, there will be no escaping the stench of life threatening infections, diseases and epidemics,” the Poo2Loo website says, while asking visitors to sign a pledge to ending public defecation. YouTube videos for the campaign feature giant, walking, talking, dancing,

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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
