As Morsi Promotes Hamas, Obama Promotes Morsi Posted By Andrew C. McCarthy

http://pjmedia.com/andrewmccarthy/2012/10/10/as-morsi-promotes-hamas-obama-promotes-morsi/?print=1 In Cairo last week, Hamas’s chief, Khaled Mashal, gave a fiery speech calling for violent jihad against Israel. With approving nods from his hosts — aides to Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood leader whom Egyptians elected their president — Mashal exclaimed, “Resistance [ACM- “resistance” is the Islamist euphemism for “terrorism”], not negotiation, is the […]



Lara Logan is pretty and pretty convincing and useful when she is on record in denouncing this administration’s failures in Afghanistan. Read “Lara Logan’s War Cry”—-The CBS News and ‘60 Minutes’ correspondent stunned a Chicago audience with her interventionist critique of America’s response to the attacks in Libya. James Warren reports.


Really? How come she has never condemned the Afghan insider killings–rooted as the May, 2011 Army Red Team report revealed in “totalitarian Islam”– let alone See No Islam “Counterinsurgency doctrine” (COIN).

She was in fact a big fan of the mental and moral cretin McChrystal, who, as Diana West discovered, even condemned the assassination of bin Laden as a “violation” of Pakistan’s territorial sovereignty. From Andrew Bostom’s forthcoming “Sharia Versus Freedom”, pp. 359-60:

“Diana West brought to my attention a commentary published May 13, 2011, by Pakistani Rhodes Scholar at Magdalen College, University of Oxford, Dr. Mohammad Ali Rai. Dr. Rai recorded comments made by General Stanley McChrystal in May 2011 at Oxford’s International Relations Society, during a discussion of US military intervention in “Af-Pak.”67 Regarding the assassination of Osama bin Laden—the avowed jihadist mastermind of the mass killing of three thousand US noncombatants in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania, on September 11, 2001, as well as a litany of other murderous jihad terrorist actions,68McChrystal opined:

‘To my [Dr. Rai’s] surprise, the general [McChrystal] also brought up the issue of Pakistan’s territorial sovereignty and how that had been violated in the Bin Laden mission. The general even went on to say that the news of Bin Laden’s death was not something that should be celebrated, as there is no happiness and satisfaction in the loss of human life.69’

The preening, pseudomoralistic voice of amoral, postmodern COIN defeatism, in its own words.”

Logan would blithely resign our troops to the same self-destructive modes of operation dictated by See No Islam COIN under which they currently operate. Conservatives had better get their minds around this reality and stop singing her praises as anything other than a momentary way to bash Obama, appropriately, during the election cycle. However, she represents an endorsement of failed policies, not some bold new approach.

Obama’s delusional campaign getting loopier
The Washington Times
Tuesday, October 9, 2012
After getting thoroughly trounced by Mitt Romney on the debate stage, President Obama chose to trash his opponent, call him a liar and accuse him of being some kind of duplicitous, two-faced snake-oil salesman. In the throes of desperate delusion, his campaign got even loopier. Read more…

West: Obama foreign policy ‘utter failure’
Human Events
Tuesday, October 9, 2012
President Obama has built a foreign policy on trying to appease and make friends with America’s enemies, rather than facing them head on with strength and clear consequences for their actions. The president’s approach has been an utter failure. Read more…

Is the Election Delaying Nidal Hasan’s Trial? Posted By Lloyd Billingsley


The legal wrangling continues over Major Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist and jihadist who at Fort Hood in 2009 killed 13 while yelling “Allahu Akbar!” The issue is supposedly Major Hasan’s beard, which he grew to signify his Islamic faith. The judge, Col. Gregory Gross, says the beard is a disruption and wants to forcible shave Hasan. That has touched off appeals but something else may be driving the delays, such as the presidential election.

Hasan’s action scored good reviews in some quarters. “Nidal Hassan is a hero,” said the website of Anwar Al-Awlaki, imam at the Dar al-Hijirah mosque Hasan attended. “He is a man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people. . . Nidal opened fire on soldiers who were on their way to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. How can there be any dispute about the virtue of what he has done?”

President Obama’s first response to Hasan’s mass murder was brief, low key, and failed to include Islamic terrorism as bearing any responsibility for the deaths. “We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing,” the president said. That now amounts to official policy.

After Hasan’s mass murder campaign, the Obama administration’s Department of Defense issued Protecting the Force: Lessons from Fort Hood. As Andrew McCarthy noted in Spring Fever, Major Hasan was a “five-alarm jihadist” but the DoD report casts his actions as “workplace violence,” as though Hasan was a fired postal worker seeking payback.

Protecting the Force contains not a single reference to jihad or jihadists and its only mention of “Islamic” is an endnote reference to “Countering Violent Islamic Extremism,” a 2007 FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin. The word “hate” occurs only once. Given the reality of the Fort Hood mass murder, the praise from al-Alwaki, and Hasan’s attempts to contact al Qaeda, the omissions are truly breathtaking.



Clint Eastwood’s image of the empty chair in the White House hit home even with the literately conscious magazine The New Yorker whose cover featured Barack Obama’s “empty chair” as the metaphor for the presidential debate.

Movie cowboys are often men of few words and much action. Eastwood knows. Few people are better suited to sum up the essential emptiness and hackneyed hollowness of Barack Obama who cast himself as the sheriff who kills terrorists like Osama Bin Laden when all before him have failed.

The policies of Barack Obama all begin with a lot of words: Recovery Summer, Stimulus, Arab Spring, Re-Start with Russia, Engagement with Iran, ambassador to Syria. But they all end ”not with a bang, but with a whimper.”

That is the phrase of T.S. Eliot whose poem “The Hollow Men” seems to have been written for Obama, although it was composed before Obama was born.

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar

Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

“Gesture without motion” is President Obama’s trademark in office.




White privilege consists of being white. Black privilege consists of denouncing white people in ways that would be considered racist if the shoe were on the other foot.

Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, a man whose website modestly describes him as a “Professor, Author, Speaker, Public Intellectual,” has assembled a list of what he believes are the 15 most overrated white people to prove the point. Any college faculty member who tried assembling a list of the 15 most overrated black people would soon be the target of the most overzealous witch-hunt since Salem.

But if we were assembling a list of overrated black people, Dr. Marc Lamont Hill might just deserve his own place on the notepad. Hill’s bio is the usual intriguing world of African-American academia, complete with essays on social commentary in Hip Hop. Hill writes, so he’s an author. He speaks, so he’s a speaker. And he was once a weekly contributor to the Star Jones talk show, so he’s clearly a public intellectual. Best of all, he’s an affiliated faculty member in African American Studies at the Institute for Research in African American Studies at Columbia University. IRAAS has a logo that features two iguanas mating and offers all the usual navel-gazing courses that exist only to waste tuition money, except they’re African-American navel-gazing courses.


http://frontpagemag.com/2012/davidhornik/understanding-israels-red-line/ Why, in his speech to the UN General Assembly late last month, did Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu push back the crunch time for Iran’s nuclear program to next spring or summer? The extended deadline came as a surprise considering that Netanyahu and his defense minister Ehud Barak had been saying for almost a […]


On a jury to consider how the Palestinians have been treated were such luminaries as musician Roger Waters and writer Alice Walker.


Those who grew up with Pink Floyd’s 1979 double album “The Wall” will remember it as the perfect antidote to the crueller aspects of teenage life. Chronicling the mental breakdown of a pop star, the rock opera rages against suffocating parents, tyrannical teachers and social conformism. The story concludes with the hero hauled before a nightmarish court, where everyone in his life testifies as an adversarial witness. Before the defendant can say a word in his own defense, the judge bellows a guilty verdict: “The evidence before the court is incontrovertible. There is no need for the jury to retire!”



Having been routed in the first debate, President Obama has found a comeback strategy: Fly Big Bird. Specifically, mock Mitt Romney’s call to cut federal subsidies for the millionaires at the Sesame Workshop and pledge to defend the Public Broadcasting Service no matter how much money the Treasury has to borrow.

At least he’s finally discovered a second-term agenda.

On Monday night in San Francisco, Mr. Obama claimed Mr. Romney “said he’d bring down our deficit by going after what has been the biggest driver of our debt and deficits over the last decade—public television, PBS. You didn’t know this, but for all you moms and kids out there, you should have confidence that finally somebody is cracking down on Big Bird.” He’s also rolled out a TV ad starring the Sesame Street favorite.

Mr. Obama is mocking a small effort to reduce federal spending, but it would be funnier if Mr. Obama hadn’t also rejected all the larger efforts too. From Congressional Republicans. From his own Simpson-Bowles deficit commission. From a bipartisan group in the Senate. At the San Francisco event, as at the debate, as at every other campaign event this year, Mr. Obama offered no plan to move the government’s spending into the same galaxy with its revenues.
