“The Muslim Brotherhood nominated its chief strategist and financier Khairat el-Shater on Saturday as its candidate to become Egypt’s first president since Hosni Mubarak, breaking a pledge not to seek the top office and a monopoly on power,” reports the New York Times.
Wall Street Journal Op-Ed:
“Something’s happening to President Obama’s relationship with those who are inclined not to like his policies. They are now inclined not to like him. His supporters would say, “Nothing new there,” but actually I think there is. I’m referring to the broad, stable, nonradical, non-birther right. Among them the level of dislike for the president has ratcheted up sharply the past few months.”
Peggy Noonan’s article goes deep into public perception about the way this president operates and thinks. From birth control to whispered discussions with Medvedev to Trayvon Martin, President Obama has become a most polarizing figure. From our point of view, these positions are a foreshadowing of the next four years.
God appoints and deposes kings and there are several Biblical references to kings being put in position by God to bring judgment on unrepentant people: 2 Kings 17:18-20, Daniel 2:21, Daniel 4:17 and Romans 13:1.
World Net Daily:
JERUSALEM – “President Obama has been engaged in secret, back-channel talks with Iran in which he informed Tehran’s leaders he is completely opposed to any Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, according to informed Middle Eastern officials.
The officials told WND the behind-the-scenes talks aim to secure a guarantee from Iran that it will not retaliate against the U.S. in the event of any Israeli military strike, the officials said.”
We asked this exact question earlier this week. After the whisper to Medvedev, what’s Obama saying to Iran? Now we know.
“Obama will now have a campaign opportunity to pull a bait-and-switch. Upon the collapse of the mandate, Obama can face the nation and say, “We didn’t get it done this time, because I naively tried to do it the Republicans’ way. But the problems of unfair insurance practices and millions of Americans without coverage remain unsolved. If you give me a second term, I promise you that I won’t fall into the trap of trying to appease the Republicans again. We’ll get it done this time, for all Americans.”
Ahh, perhaps I celebrated too soon, as it appears that the administration knew that the individual mandate would be struck down, and that may be just what they had planned. In his book ‘The Audacity of Hope’, published in October 2006 when he was a U.S. senator, Obama described single-payer as the “hope of the left, while those on the right wanted a market-based approach.”
No wonder that the Solicitor General did such a poor job making the case with the Supreme Court. It may have been on purpose:
- The Washington Post, “Verrilli — who is widely described by those who know him well as a deft and accomplished lawyer — repeatedly pauses, excuses himself and generally appears lost during his presentation.”
- Blogger Doug Powers, “Yesterday, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli put in a performance worthy of Miss Teen South Carolina in his pro-ObamaCare arguments (to properly sell something you have to first believe it yourself).”
If ObamaCare is struck down by the Supreme Court, our progressive left government can then move to a single payer type of welfare/healthcare and be in total control of everyone. Pass the aspirin… if that’s still allowed.

“At the heart of the GMJ lies Iran, whose regime expresses, on an almost
weekly basis, its desire to wipe Israel from the face of the earth. It is
financially backing various groups participating in the march, and Iran’s
supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei verbally lent his
imprimatur to the movement recently.
The protest has also been endorsed, unsurprisingly, by prominent radical
leftists in the West including
anti-apartheid activist Archbishop Desmond
Tutu, former British MP George
Galloway, radical professors Noam
Chomsky and Cornel
West, Code Pink activist Medea
Benjamin, and the notoriously controversial Rev.
Department of Homeland Security press release:
ATK announced that it is being awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement from the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS, ICE) for .40 caliber ammunition. This contract features a base of 12 months, includes four option years, and will have a maximum volume of 450 million rounds.
ATK was the incumbent and won the contract with its HST bullet, which has proven itself in the field. The special hollow point effectively passes through a variety of barriers and holds its jacket in the toughest conditions. HST is engineered for 100-percent weight retention, limits collateral damage, and avoids over-penetration.
“We are proud to extend our track record as the prime supplier of .40 caliber duty ammunition for DHS, ICE,” said Ron Johnson, President of ATK’s Security and Sporting group.
Actually, this order for bullets makes some sense in a distorted kind of way. In just three months the following bills/laws/acts/ have been passed:
1. NDAA authorizing the President to arrest US citizens using the military, without trial.
2. National Defense Resources Preparedness Act: Authorizing the president to declare Martial Law in peacetime
3. Trespass Act: authorizing the arrest of US citizens who protest in the vicinity of government officials
4. Stored Communications Act: Authorizing the government to store emails, text messages, etc for 5 years
5. Utah Spy Center: Authorizes the government to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks. …
Combine the above with this quote from candidate Obama in July 2008: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
Now you see why there is a big need for bullets and it’s not for al-Qaeda.
