A Coup? Or Something Else?
$1.5 Billion in U.S. Aid
Is on the Line

New York Times, by Peter Baker

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/4/2013 11:35:39 PM

Washington - By all accounts, the generals removed the democratically elected president, put him in detention, arrested his allies and suspended the Constitution. (Snip) But was it a military coup d’état? For the White House and the new Egyptian government, that is the $1.5 billion question. President Obama’s government on Thursday was reviewing the implications for American aid to Egypt after the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi, and under United States law it has no choice but to cut off financial assistance to the country if it determines that he was deposed in a military

The New York Times thinks that they can manipulate US in feeling sorry for the Egyptian people right now, so 0bama can somehow twist U.S. law to be able to give this $1.5B "aid" away to the Islamist. Is this a coup or a "popular uprising?" [Is there a "like" button somewhere?]

For criminy sakes! Enough already and just forget about these clowns for now. Every friggin time we concern ourselves with the likes of muslim radicals we take it right in the backside. We´ve given them plenty of OUR money and to what end? No more! At least for now. Let´s look after ourselves and start with why we´re giving up things for stupid rules and see how well the citizens can place 1.5 billion where needed.

Apparently, Obama´s "no problem, bro!" policy applies only to aid and comfort to the Muslim Brotherhood, not the Egyptian people who oppose them.

JOHN KERRY: Sir, I just explained our position on the Egyptian situation to Wolf Blitzer.
OBAMA: We have a position?
KERRY: Yes, sir. We were against the coup before we were for it.
VALERIE JARRETT: Unrest could lead to civil war, Mr. President—and who knows what else.
OBAMA: You’re right. Defense, I want the Eisenhower and the Truman to steam for Suez immediately and wrest control of the Canal from Egypt. That’ll unite the Egyptians against us, possibly forestalling the military from launching an attack on Israel to distract the population.
CHUCK HAGEL: Sir, that’s an act of war.
OBAMA: We’ll quit Suez and explain it away as a military exercise that got out of hand because of miscommunication. By that time, the generals will have the country under control. A dozen more F-16 fighter jets will encourage them to forgive and forget.

The following prompts another question:

But Mr. Mubarak had never been the choice of a genuinely free election, while Mr. Morsi’s subsequent election, although disturbing to many in Washington because of his affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood, was widely deemed democratic, even if some of his actions in office were not.

What, exactly, should be America´s role in the affairs of other nations? Certainly, it´s in our best interests that Egypt stay stable once this coup is done, but after that, why do we persist (as we did with Mubarek) in trying to micro-manage the governments of other countries? I can understand wanting someone leading Egypt who has a high regard for America; that´s something we benefit from, but aside from our national interests, why do we persist in trying to manage everything else, too?

Obama´s desire was and still is that the Muslim Brotherhood take control of as much as possible. This time in Egypt, he has failed, but what will he do to reverse those fortunes.

The Left vilified Bush for getting involved in other countries, but is strangely silent about Obama´s doing likewise, and more.

We have to decide if spending 1.5B on Egypt right now is worth it. What do WE get out of it and what does Israel get out of it?

When a tyrant controls your country you dispose of him or her in the most expedient way. Hitler also was democratically elected proving that sometimes the process must be reversed by any means necessary. Democracy is not an election, It´s a process that fosters equality, individual rights and true liberty. The removal of Morsi was the will of the people and the US should give them its full support. The left believes in control by the state and only uses "democracy" as a political crutch.

It´s just Obama´s modus operandi. When problems surface he simply tweaks, parses, amends,delays or patches them until the next go around.
The Foot Hood shooting? Workplace violence. The optimistic job #s? Readjust them downward quietly the next week. The coup that may not be a coup? Change the wording if you´ve got a $1.5B snafu to deal with. Sure you can keep your private health insurance under ACA. You just won´t be able to afford it, heh heh.
On and on. A thousand times slicker than the Zipmeister. Words have no meaning anymore bc they can be adjusted minutes or years later if necessary.
It seems, however, that our 7% black-50% white, Black President has encountered 1 major inexplicable issue: whatever happened to Barry Soetoro.

As Mubarak himself said, foreign aid is taking money from poor Americans and giving it to rich Africans. Money is liquid and can easily be abused.

But the military aid is another thing entirely. We have spent decades "Americanizing" the leadership of Egypt´s military. Had we not followed through with the M1s and F-16s we could be looking at a bloody mess in Egypt right now.

There is nothing inherently wrong with a coup, even a military coup that removes a democratically elected president and his party, when those removed are governing against the will of the people, assuming dictatorial powers, creating a fascist state, and destroying the democratic process that put them in power in the first place.

We are infected with the virus of moral equivalency. We have spent so many decades being told we cannot be judgmental about anything, lest we be labeled racist, homophobe, bigot, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim, xenophobe, that it has affected our powers of reason and discernment. Bullets for freedom are not the same as bullets for tyranny.

Oh, and another thought. Now is PRECISELY the time to reward the Egyptian military with $1.5 billion in aid. The Egyptian people largely support and trust the military, and the military has made clear its desire to transition back to a civilian government as quickly as possible. Egypt tried on the Islamists for size, didn´t like them, and are now trying another tack. And so far their casualties amount to little more than what you see on a summer night in Chicago.

Supporting the Egyptian military is the right thing to do at this time. And that is why I fully expect Obama won´t.

The [Obama] administration’s “verbal acrobatics,” he added, denied the obvious. “What is a coup?” he [Morsi advisor] said. “We’re going to get into some really Orwellian stuff here.”

My bet is that the administration will talk about this for months until the next installment is due for Egypt ... and send the money.

Washington disbursed this year’s military aid in May and presumably would not deliver more until next winter or spring.

Military aid? Well, apparently the military put the money to good use!!!

CIA misled on interrogation
program, Senate report says

A report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concludes that the CIA misled the government and the public about aspects of its brutal interrogation program for years — concealing details about the severity of its methods, overstating the significance of plots and prisoners, and taking credit for critical pieces of intelligence that detainees had in fact surrendered before they were subjected to harsh techniques. The report, built around detailed chronologies of dozens of CIA detainees, documents a long-standing pattern of unsubstantiated claims as agency officials sought permission to use — and later tried to defend — excruciating interrogation

Washington - An Idaho man who pleaded guilty to firing an assault rifle at the White House in 2011 has been sentenced to 25 years in prison. A federal judge in Washington sentenced Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez on Monday. Prosecutors had asked he spend 27 ½ years in prison for the shooting. No one was injured, but prosecutors say Ortega-Hernandez hit the executive mansion about eight times and did nearly $100,000 in damage. Ortega-Hernandez´s lawyers argued he was suffering from extreme depression and mental stress at the time of the shooting and was under the misguided belief that Armageddon was coming.

If power steering assist is lost, a message displays on the Driver Information Center and a chime sounds to inform the driver.

Iowa City, Iowa - Iowa continues to maintain an internal "do not rehire" list of fired employees who are barred from returning to state employment, even though judges have raised questions about its legality, according to a review by The Associated Press. Since 2009, judges have said three times that the Iowa Department of Administrative Services doesn´t have "the statutory or regulatory authority" to issue lifetime employment bans against fired workers, but the list has steadily grown, records show. As of January, 1,471 people were barred from being reconsidered for executive branch employment, data show.

U.S. Ambassador to India Nancy Powell announced her resignation Monday after only two years on the job, sparking some speculation overseas that the administration may have been looking to replace her. Powell only arrived in India in April 2012, and these diplomatic posts typically last three years. The buzz in New Delhi is that Powell’s departure may be related to ongoing tensions over the uproar in India after the arrest of Devyani Khobragade, an Indian diplomat in New York, on charges of falsifying visa documents for her maid/nanny and then lying to investigators about what she was paying the domestic worker.

Obamacare Real Enrollment:

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
