Egyptian women protest proposed constitution
Islamists are seeking to enshrine in Egypt’s long-awaited new constitution a number of articles that secularists and liberals fear would severely set back civil liberties, including provisions that could empower clerics to stipulate that women’s rights cannot violate Shariah law or “family duties.” Read more…

Mideast mess: Obama making matters worse
The National Interest
Monday, October 1, 2012
As riots throughout the Middle East call into question both the utility of President Obama’s attempts to reach out to the Arab world and his administration’s claims to have vanquished Al Qaeda, the president himself has contributed to making a difficult situation even worse. Read more…

For the moment let’s put aside the great debate we are currently having over whether Muslims are bloodthirsty savages or noble persecuted victims of our foreign policy. Whatever one’s view of the tenets of a religion whose founder got rich and got married by murdering and torturing those who didn’t bow to his god, its modern day practitioners represent a practical problem that not even the most wide-eyed chump with a two-thousand dollar camera full of photos of native boys and a guidebook to doing Benghazi on two pebbles a day can really overlook.
Muslims, in a percentile yet to be decided, kill people. That is a thing which most members of the human race, not counting perhaps the Amish, do from time to time, but they seem to do it more frequently and without the non-prejudicial clause that our modern looters and murderers are expected to abide by. More problematically they do this in troublingly organized ways with an eye to achieving the maximum possible death toll even when there is no personal profit or personal survival involved.
Imagine the gang bangers with their gold-plated 9mm’s held at an artful hip-hop video angle believing that a short lifetime of sordid evil will be atoned by killing anyone who isn’t a member of the Crips, Bloods and Mohammeds. Now put those gang bangers under the leadership of a Muslim Bill Ayers, a graduate of some second-rate American university with a degree in Muslim Brotherhood recruitment in Cairo, and throw in funding from a Muslim George Soros with his own line of oil wells, terrorist training camps and country. Put the whole thing together and you have a serious Muslim terrorist problem.
http://frontpagemag.com/2012/andrew-harrod/the-consequences-of-slandering-the-prophet-of-islam/ September 25, 2012, the same day that President Barack Obama declared in an address before the United Nations (UN) General Assembly that the “future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” (more analysis on the speech here), a legal team in Germany released a press statement concerning the charges against […]
http://frontpagemag.com/2012/arnold-ahlert/obamas-promotion-of-racial-hatred-exposed/print/ Last night, on the eve of the first and perhaps most important debate between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney, the Daily Caller released the first “October surprise” of the 2012 election in the form of an unedited 2007 video of Obama speaking at Hampton University. Dubbed by the Drudge Report and the […]
http://pjmedia.com/spengler/ Egypt’s economy appears to be running on fumes. Public health clinics are out of vaccine for infants, importers are running out of stockpiles of basic food items, and the government is $3 billion in the hole to oil suppliers in the midst of a paralyzing fuel shortage. And it doesn’t look like anyone is […]
His secretary of state and his ambassador both skipped Netanyahu’s speech.
At last week’s grand gathering of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, one of the Obama administration’s worst fumbles was largely unreported by the U.S. media. It came during Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Thursday speech to the assembly.
In the face of Iran’s advancing nuclear program and repeated threats to annihilate Israel, Netanyahu was presenting an urgent case for drawing a red line against Iran’s ability to make nuclear weapons. “The relevant question,” he said, “is not when Iran will get the bomb. The relevant question is at what stage can we no longer stop Iran from getting the bomb.”
The prime minister presented this essential declaration to a U.N. chamber dominated by member states whose governments are for the most part hostile to Israel. More than half of them belong to the Non-Aligned Movement, now chaired by Iran. Meanwhile, the most important diplomat to whom Netanyahu should be able to look for support, the U.S.’s ambassador to the U.N., was not there.
Amid the theater of U.N. summit speeches, where symbolism matters, Ambassador Susan Rice should have been right there in the chamber — not only to listen to America’s embattled ally, but to be witnessed by the world, and especially by other delegations to the U.N., heeding every word and applauding at the end. If Rice absolutely could not be present, Secretary of State Clinton, also in New York for meetings, should have been there.
Univision has done some outstanding investigative reporting on Operation Fast and Furious, the ill-conceived and disastrously executed gun-smuggling operation that was designed to identify the kingpins of a Mexican firearms-trafficking network but resulted in the transfer of approximately 2,000 high-powered weapons into the hands of dangerous thugs connected with the drug cartels. A recently issued report from the Justice Department’s inspector general criticizes the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona, and senior DOJ officials for their roles in this botched investigation. The report cites “a series of misguided strategies, tactics, errors in judgment, and management failures that permeated ATF Headquarters and the Phoenix Field Division, as well as the U.S. Attorney’s Office.”
President Obama remains in denial about Fast and Furious. When asked about it two weeks ago, he responded: “Well, first of all, I think it’s important to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program, begun under the previous administration. When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it.” This is wrong on two counts. First, Operation Fast and Furious began in the fall of 2009, under the current administration. Second, it ended on December 15, 2010, the day it was discovered that two Fast and Furious weapons were found at the scene where U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered. That was two full months before Attorney General Eric Holder claims to have known about the operation.
Did you all catch this phrase in Obama tape?
“We don’t need to build more highways out in the suburbs. We should be investing in minority-owned business, in our neighborhoods”?
In his new book “Spreading the Wealth- How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities” Kurtz cogently argues, again with meticulous research and detail, that “regionalism” a redistributive agenda which would meld suburbs including their schools, utilities and essential services and taxes into cities, is already in place ready for implementation in a second Obama administration.
This is not a new idea and has its roots in the community organizers who trained our President with the argument that rich and essentially white people fled to the suburbs leaving the inner cities to struggle with blight, crime ,poverty, homelessness and poor and failing schools.
To correct this, it was argued, required a major redistribution and “equalization’ of wealth.
The suburbs, leafy retreats from asphalt and congestion, have been depicted in movies and books as stultifying, middle class, prejudiced, boring and ” bourgeois.” For community organizers they represented what Kurtz calls “a defect in American structure.”

http://pjmedia.com/rogerlsimon/2012/10/03/barack-obama-segregationist/?print=1 I have never been able to put my finger on exactly what it was that I so disliked about Barack Obama. As a former sixties civil rights worker, I should have been attracted to, or at least inspired by, the first black presidential candidate and president, but I never was. Sure, I didn’t care […]
