Obama ‘trapped in the burning car’ of his Middle East foreign policy

By: Jeffrey Klein

President Barack Obama seems to be ‘trapped in the burning car‘ of the new Middle East, which was ironically born from his own foreign policy-making kicked off in 2009 during his [so-called] ‘Cairo Speech.’

It is now well known that on the 11th anniversary America’s deadly “9/11” Islamic-extremist attacks, the Obama administration was caught completely ‘flat-footed’ by an explosion of Islamic-led anti-American protests and violence at U.S. embassies in ‘Arab Spring‘ Muslim countries across North Africa, including the 100 man al Qaeda-related terror attack in Libya that killed four Americans, including two ex-Navy Seals.

Three years later, instead of basking in the glory of being the long-awaited ‘great healer,’ Muslim protesters are burning effigies of Obama, while public opinion incinerates his ‘foreign policy’ gravitas–the only expertise polls suggest he ever had over Mitt Romney.

And as the mountain of evidence and legion of critics are growing, just 43 days before the general election, Obama’s decision to not meet with any other world leader during the U.N. General Assembly meeting this week in New York, is starkly obvious and telling–he doesn’t want to give Mitt Romney and Republicans any more ‘fresh red meat’ than they are already getting.

It’s really too late for that as both sides of the media are now on it.

According to Edward Klein (no relation), the former editor of the New York Times Magazine, wrote in a FOXNews opinion article today that when it comes to foreign policy, it’s amateur hour in the White House.

This rank amateurism was on full display in the confusing and contradictory manner with which Obama treated the two most important leaders in the Middle East— Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu of Israel and Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt.

Klein then referred to his sources in Jerusalem and Washington, who told him the real reason Obama snubbed Netanyahu was political, not diplomatic.

Evidently, they believed that Team Obama thought a meeting with Netanyahu, would then result in the Israeli Prime Minister wanting to appear non-partisan and meet with his long-time friend, Mitt Romney. And the last thing the Chicago gang wanted was ‘side-by-side front-page photos of Bibi’s chilly reception at the White House–contrasted to his warm embrace with Romney.

Then there was the ‘candid’ interview of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi at his office in Cairo, by David Kirkpatrick and Steven Erlanger in their September 23rd New York Times article, wherein Morsi curtly explained that the United States needed to fundamentally change its approach to the Arab world, to show greater respect for its values and help to build a Palestinian state–if it hoped to overcome decades of pent-up anger.

Morsi was proud of his ‘roots’ in the Muslim Brotherhood, the insular religious revival group that was Mr. Mubarak’s main opposition, but now dominates Egyptian politics.

I grew up with the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said. “I learned my principles in the Muslim Brotherhood. I learned how to love my country with the Muslim Brotherhood. I learned politics with the Brotherhood. I was a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.

This gave an Islamic fundamentalist foundation to Morsi’s view of the ‘new’ relationship that Egypt would have with the United States:

If you want to judge the performance of the Egyptian people by the standards of German or Chinese or American culture, then there is no room for judgment. When the Egyptians decide something, probably it is not appropriate for the U.S. When the Americans decide something, this, of course, is not appropriate for Egypt.

So now, if you are President Barack Obama–‘the most powerful man in the world’–what is your ‘Plan-B’ in the face of this cascading turmoil in the Middle East, shepherded into existence by your very own foreign policy visions, decisions and actions?

You do what you do best when in New York City–hit the couch on ‘The View‘ with Michelle, and carry on a ‘high brow’ kaffeeklatsch with the girls.

Russia to “Liberate the World from US Occupation”

By: Trevor Loudon

Russia and its ally China are planning to replace the United States as the world’s leading power. Part of that plan involves ensuring that the US dollar is no longer the world’s reserve currency… which will spell economic disaster for this country.

From Pravda:

A State Duma deputy, the head of the Committee on Economic Policy and Entrepreneurship of the Russian State Duma, Yevgeny Fyodorov, told Pravda.Ru of his impressions from visiting the APEC summit in Vladivostok. According to him, the meeting showed that the U.S. gradually loses absolute power in the world economy and politics. The power and influence of other countries, such as Russia and China, grows against such a background.

“APEC is a very interesting and important event, although it seems to be an ordinary one. The leaders get together and discuss important issues, but in reality it is the key event in today’s global scenario. With the onset of the global economic crisis,with political and economic turbulence, the APEC is a key event in terms of the demonstration of new vectors of unity of the international community outside the United States.

It is clear that it is not a split – everyone still plays by American rules, but the countries already demonstrate their independence in economic policy. I was there and saw how angry Mrs. Hillary Clinton was when she came from China, where several Chinese leaders – especially those who are to become top officials of China next year – did not even want to meet her. In China, Clinton was told no when she wanted to take on mediator’s functions in resolving China’s territorial disputes with Asian countries.

She also heard no in response to her requirement to set the yuan rate. It is an annual requirement of the United States to China to set the yuan rate for political reasons to pump resources and opportunities from China to the U.S. It is an additional form of tribute from China, which China had to deal with every year for political motives. Nowadays, the U.S. was refused. The world is changing.

Russian President Vladimir Putin clearly expressed his attitude to the dollar as the world reserve currency. In fact, he offered the countries of the world to start building a large number of regional currencies as an alternative to the reserve system of the dollar. This is a strong step and a strong move, including the initiative to switch to mutual payments. He also said that Russia and China had already switched to the system and he urged other countries to follow the example. This shows that the world begins to change fundamentally, and Russia’s role at this point is to become the leader in changing the world. I would say that Putin as the leader of the national liberation movement in Russia, demonstrated himself at the event as a leader and provider of ideas for the world national liberation movement against the system of occupation, which was formed after 1991 not only about Russia but also China and many other countries.

Today, the world begins to unite against the colonizer – USA. For the time being, it is a conceptual and preparatory process, but it takes place. In this regard, I would call the preliminary results of the meeting in the Far East the meeting of the future members of the world national liberation movement to free the world from the U.S. occupation.

The shift in global power centers is economic and political at present. If Barack Obama is re-elected and continues his mission of destroying the US military… the stage will be set for war… a war that America will have little chance of winning.


Help Needed: Convince conservative writers to cover Sharon Meroni’s efforts to combat voter fraud in Illinois and get her the 500 election judges she still needs!

By: Kevin DuJan

Folks, there’s a big story here that needs to make national news and I need YOUR help in breaking it wide open.

This could actually end up being the biggest story of the 2012 elections…but it’s hard to get conservative writers to focus on anything in Illinois, since the past incompetence of the GOP in our state has made it something of a laughingstock nationally.

One woman — a mom from the suburbs of Chicago — took it upon herself to mount a crusade against voter fraud here in Illinois and she is close to shutting down at least two major avenues of fraud that Democrats have relied on for DECADES in Chicagoland. She’s been threatened, bullied, maligned, and stonewalled…and that’s just by the cocktail-party-Republicans here who are still in the mindset of “let’s not upset the apple cart”. Democrats hate this woman because systematically she’s gone after one avenue of voter fraud after another, removing layers of fraud that Democrats have built into Illinois elections since the first Mayor Daley was magically finding boxes of votes to give John F. Kennedy the edge in 1960.

Her name is Sharon Meroni and she needs your help today.

It’s down to the wire and Sharon still needs 500 Republican election judges in Cook County…and she needs them by this coming Thursday. If she doesn’t find 500 more judges, then Democrats will get to fill those positions…just like they have in previous elections. Democrats use those slots as patronage pay-offs and also enjoy having complete control of polling places…which is how the dead are allowed to vote in many cases or how, mysteriously, people who didn’t actually show up to vote end up voting anyway if Democrats need them to in tight elections. Without a Republican judge in a polling place to prevent this from happening, fraud is institutionalized in Cook County elections.

The task of filling these election judge slots has been so monumental that it’s no wonder the GOP in Illinois has never even tried before…but Sharon Meroni is close to succeeding. She is a living, breathing American hero and something close to a wonder woman for getting this close…but she is still 500 judges away from meeting her goal.

How you can help:

Please contact every conservative writer you can think of by email or fax today. Let’s start making a list in this thread, and start putting the contact numbers down so others can write these people too. We need to send out an S.O.S. to every big name out there and ask him or her to help Sharon get the 500 judges she needs. In the past, this would have been a moment where I could call up Andrew Breitbart and ask him to help and he would have blasted his network and ultimately delivered the volunteers. With Andrew gone, though, I don’t know anyone who’s filling that niche when action is needed.

Here is what Sharon needs:

* 500 people who live in Cook County who voted Republican in the past (which means they are registered as Republicans in Illinois, because party registration is determined by which ballot you pull in the primaries)

* Get the word out that these 500 people need to go to www.ElectionJudges.us to apply to be election judges in Cook County

* Election judging requires being on site at a polling place for the entirety of November 6th, 2012. This might mean taking a sick day to do this…but you will be compensated $170/day for doing this.

* People who have questions about whether they would qualify need to call: 312-242-1818

YOU can help by sending this article to every conservative writer you can think of. Ask them to cover this effort. The ElectionJudges.US website has all the information they need to write a good story on this. They can also arrange to interview Sharon for more information by calling 312-242-1818 to find out more about how these election judges could eliminate scores of fraud in Illinois.

Just imagine: the most corrupt and voter-fraud-ridden state in the country suddenly faced with a concerted effort to prevent fraud for the first time EVER, all because you took time out of your day today to help one mom with her crusade to fill all Republican election judge positions with actual Republicans.

Please help us do this. Please help us secure our elections in Illinois.

Who are you going to contact right now about this and how else can you think to help us get the word out that 500 election judges are still needed in Cook County?

We need big-names to blast this information to their email lists or cover this effort in a column to draw attention to Sharon’s efforts!

Andrew Breitbart would have totally made this happen…but with him gone, we need your help to pick up this slack.
