Word list of words you should not use in emails. :-)









 

 

I guess the stupid terrorist won't think of just sending the message as a embedded jpeg (as you did) and the words can't be scanned.

Gene



Below is the full list of the words used by officials to police the internet. If you regularly use any of these words, the DHS could be spying on YOU
You will find this information at http://www.mrconservative.com/2013/07/20876-government-releases-list-of-words-they-use-to-police-internet-identify-threats/ .

U.S. Venture Capital Fundraising Plunges 54%





 

 

How could this happen?  After all, we now have The One (tm) in charge of the country, so what could possibly go wrong?

 

Oh, I forgot...it's all George W. Bush's fault.

 

And of course, the blame is shared by the evil right wing extremist millionaires/billionaires.

 

Those lousy bastards!  They'll do anything...including economic suicide...to make The One (tm) look bad!

 

Racists all!

U.S. VENTURE CAPITAL FUNDRAISING PLUNGES 54%

Venture capital fundraising in the second quarter dried up as the U.S. saw the worst venture capital fundraising quarter in nearly two years.

U.S. venture capital firm fundraising dropped 54% to $2.88 billion as 10-year returns yield 6.9% returns versus the Nasdaq's 8.5%, reports Reuters.

The National Venture Capital Association and Reuters say last year 51 venture capital firms raised cash; this year that number dropped to 44.

"Dollar values of capital under management are declining from historical levels," said NVCA president Mark Heesen. "Counterbalancing this trend is the recent uptick in the venture-backed IPO market which, if sustainable, may very well draw more dollars into the asset class in the coming year."

The top five venture capital funds made up 55% of total fundraising.

Re: Nothing Shocks Me....

Hey Travis,
 
I agree that the media did a hatchet job on Zimmerman,  now that we semi-know the facts.  But it's one thing entirely for the media to portray a story unfairly and with bias, (and that too is unforgivable!)  but it's a totally different thing to find out that your own government;  and then especially the JUSTICE DEPARTMENT is behind spreading racial hate and divide?  
 
What's going on?   Every American should be outra

Enough is enough!

Tennessee State Guard Discovers Russians In DHS Armored Vehicles

Tennessee State Guard Discovers Russians In DHS Armored Vehicles

Breaking News |March 6, 2013 | 21 Comments

 


 

(Sherrie Questioning All) I got an email from someone who I know and is part of the Tennessee State Militia/Guard.
The various units of the Tn. State Guard are listed here.

Let me explain the Tennessee State Guard first. 22 Governors got together last year and created State Militia/Guards that can not be federalized as the National Guards can be.

They also did this due to the Federal government taking the equipment from the National Guards and sending it over to Iraq and Afghanistan. When the Governors have requested the equipment back for the state the Federal government has said "It is too expensive to bring back." The states have had to do without equipment for any emergencies of the individual states.

3/5/13 9:14 am – Correction: The Tennessee State Guard has been around for a few years.

The governors decided they would form their own State Militias/Guards that can not be controlled by the federal government at any time and they are strictly under the State control along with all the equipment purchased.

The person who contacted me, did so due to my article about the DHS armored vehicles and the picture I took of one when I was in Kentucky.

Here are the pictures I took.

Armored DHS vehicle in Kentucky

The email with this information is from someone I have the utmost respect for.

Here is the contents of the email from the person who is part of the Tennessee State Militia and was at a meeting a couple of weeks ago after getting the following email from them today 3/4/13 regarding the above Armored DHS vehicles.

At our last "meeting" several weeks ago, we were advised by a High Ranking Official of the State Guard that they stopped vehicles of this type coming from KY into TN. The troops were wearing very distinct uniforms for the Dept. of Homeland Security that were not recognized and the men they stopped were Eastern European, probably Russian. Apparently, there is some type of FEMA/DHS camp somewhere in Kentucky?

After receiving the above email, we spoke on the phone, I wanted to find out more information about the Russian/Eastern European DHS troops that were handling the armored vehicles.

During our phone conversation. They told me that the uniforms were not typical DHS uniforms but they had Eagles on their sleeves and it was stressed these were different DHS uniforms than regular ones. The Russian/Eastern troops were not armed that were in the DHS uniforms and they were very polite to the State Militia. They were stopped from coming into Tennessee. This person told me that in Gatlinburg, Tennessee people are reporting being questioned and stopped by DHS that are Russian. I was also told that the high ranking official mentioned Kentucky FEMA camps.

I wrote about how I found out the Smoky Mountains are part of the UN last year, as most of our National Parks, including the Grand Canyon, Statue of Liberty, etc. after I saw a plaque (took pictures of it) at Newfoundland Gap last year.

After speaking with this person, I have to wonder if Russian UN/DHS troops are now being placed around the Smoky Mountains.

I have researched and found what could be the Military installation that the armored vehicle came from pictured in the area of Kentucky, I saw them. It is The Bluegrass Army Chemicals installation of 14600 acres. That installation has 523 tons of Nerve Chemical weapons. It is also a possible FEMA camp. It has a very strange layout. All of that information is in the video.

Video about the Russian Troops, DHS vehicles, 22 State Guard/Militias, Kentucky Chemical Depot/FEMA camp?, UN Biospheres:

Fox News story about Obama signing an agreement with Russia in 2011 and the Russian training in Colorado last year.

Portion of article:

The training is the result of a U.S.-Russian agreement signed a year ago. The objectives are to create a basic relationship between the two nations' militaries and to build an understanding about how each other's military works, including communications, Osterholzer said.
That knowledge is vital in joint military and humanitarian operations such as anti-terrorism measures and disaster relief, he said.

Pictures from the Russians training last year in Colorado are on this forum and this page at the bottom.

Edit to add, thought – 3/5/13 7:41 Am – If the U.S. government plans on having Russian DHS troops, due to not caring about the U.S. citizens to handle the people for any unrest, due to them not believing U.S. citizens troops will follow orders to disarm the people or doing what they think needs to be done. They haven't thought this out completely.

They were shocked that after Sandy Hook all guns and ammo went flying off the shelves, from my understanding they were not expecting that, they expected the opposite.

They believe the Russians will shoot the people without hesitation? Well it goes the other way too. The U.S. citizens will not hesitate to shoot any Russian soldier that comes to their doors or tries to disarm the people. Remember it goes both ways… no hesitation on either side to shoot the other. The law abiding citizens of the U.S. will stand by their Freedom and Rights and will definitely stand by those rights against foreign DHS troops.

Fwd: [LDA] Zimmerman update- July 8th



---------- 

 

Win for defense: Jury to hear Martin's pot use

By Graham Winch and Amanda Sloane
updated 6:21 PM EDT, Mon July 08, 2013
NEED TO KNOW
  • HLN is covering the George Zimmerman trial live, gavel to gavel
  • Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012
Win for defense: Jury to hear Martin's pot use
Live blog of today's testimony begins below.
John Donnelly, a former Vietnam War combat medic, grew emotional on the stand in the George Zimmerman trial Monday as he explained why he thought the screams heard on a 911 call made the night Trayvon Martin died were made by his friend Zimmerman.
Donnelly was just one of a slew of defense witnesses who testified on the trial's 10th day about the controversial 911 call, which has become a key point of contention in the case.
Choking back tears, Donnelly explained that the reason he could identify the screams is due to his experience with the fog of war. During combat, Donnelly had to recognize the screams of his fellow soldiers and run to them when they needed help. He said he has heard a 250-pound man scream like a little girl.

Vote here: Do you think Zimmerman will have to testify in his defense?

"In the midst of combat, there are a lot people yelling and screaming," said Donnelly. "Sometimes they are screaming for help." 
If the jury believes Zimmerman was screaming on the 911 call, it could buttress his claim that he was forced to shoot the teenager in self-defense. On the other hand, if the jury believes Martin was screaming on the 911 call, the jury may be convinced Zimmerman murdered the teenager.
Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch captain, is charged with second-degree murder for killing 17-year-old Martin in Sanford, Florida, on Feb. 26, 2012. He told police that night that the teenager looked suspicious and that there had been several break-ins in the neighborhood. The two got into a physical altercation, and Zimmerman said he was forced to draw his gun and kill Martin.

Donnelly told the court that he views Zimmerman as a "son," but his close relationship with Zimmerman would not affect his testimony. Donnelly donated almost $3,000 to Zimmerman's defense fund and paid for $1,700 in suits for Zimmerman to wear during the trial.
Donnelly's testimony Monday was preceded by that of four of Zimmerman's other friends, who all said that they also recognized the screams on the 911 call as Zimmerman's voice. During cross-examinations, prosecutors focused on potential bias -- due to their close relationships with the defendant -- on the part of the witnesses. Prosecutor John Guy  asked Zimmerman's friend Geri Russo if she actually hoped that it was Zimmerman's voice on the 911 call to confirm her belief that the night watchman acted in self-defense.
Russo said no, that he had no doubt it was Zimmerman's voice.

HLN's live-blogging Zimmerman's trial. Click here for HLN's live blog of Friday's testimony. Read below for minute-by-minute updates:

6:20 p.m. ET: The defense expert has arrived. Defense attorney O'Mara and prosecutor Mantei are reviewing the computer reenactment. Once they're finished, the judge will be back on the bench to decide on its admissibility.
5:35 p.m. ET: The judge recesses court until the witness gets there. She tells the attorneys to meet with him to resolve their questions.
5:31 p.m. ET: The judge is back on the bench. Defense attorney O'Mara says the witness they're waiting on who created the animation  is 10-15 minutes away.
5:10 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar. The judge has recessed court for 15 minutes so the attorneys can discuss an animation.
5:08 p.m. ET: The judge won't allow a defense witness to testify that Zimmerman was reasonable in his use of deadly force and that he didn't break the law.
4:59 p.m. ET: Prosecutor Guy says the marijuana results need to have a definite effect on a person -- "In this case, we just don't know." Guy says Martin wasn't swaying while in 7-Eleven. He says the defense is trying to "backdoor some very negative character evidence." The defense tells the judge it plans to have a witness testify on this matter Tuesday. The judge says the prosecution will have a chance to cross-examine the witness and call rebuttal witnesses. She will allow the testimony about Martin's toxicology results.
4:52 p.m. ET: Defense attorney Don West says the medical examiner now says that THC from marijuana would have some affect on Martin's thinking. He also points out that Zimmerman said Martin looked like he was on "drugs or something." Martin was also swaying on surveillance video from 7-Eleven, according to West, and a lighter was found on him. He argues that the amount of marijuana found in Martin's system had some impact on his judgment and is very relevant to the case.
4:48 p.m. ET: Prosecutor John Guy says toxicology results showing marijuana in Trayvon Martin's system should be excluded from trial. He says there isn't enough to show it had any affect on him the night he was shot and would be highly prejudicial.
4:44 p.m. ET: The judge says she has reviewed Donnelly's deposition and the state had a chance to ask him about this background. She says she believes the defense should have told the state he had heard the 911 call but she won't strike Donnelly's testimony from the record.
4:42 p.m. ET: O'Mara says both sides could have played the 911 call for Donnelly during the deposition but didn't. He says the prosecutors should have to show what, exactly, they would have done differently if they knew Donnelly heard the 911 call on Saturday and was planning to testify about it.
4:39 p.m. ET: Mantei says intentionally keeping information from the prosecutors has hampered their ability to do a proper cross-examination.
4:37 p.m. ET: Prosecutor Richard Mantei is explaining to the judge how not knowing about this witness's testimony hurts their case. He says they would have tried to postpone questioning him in front of the jury to explore certain issues in a deposition. The judge asks what difference it would make if Donnelly heard the tape for the first time in court instead.
4:32 p.m. ET: The prosecution says it didn't know John Donnelly, who testified earlier today, was going to identify about the voice screaming on the 911 call as belonging to Zimmerman. In a deposition, Donnelly said he hadn't heard the calls.
4:29 p.m. ET: The judge has excused the jurors for the day. Testimony will resume at 9 a.m. ET on Tuesday. The judge is hearing some legal matters now.
4:27 p.m. ET: The possibility for influence in this case was potentially greater than other cases, according to Lee. He says that, if this were an investigation, they would question each family member separately. This witness has been excused.
4:24 p.m. ET: Lee explains how they do photo line ups. Prosecutor de la Rionda has finished his cross-examination.
4:20 p.m. ET: Lee says he believes the audio should have been played to the family members individually. He believes the 911 call was played to the family as a group in the mayor's office with no law enforcement officers present. He says he offered to be present but was excluded from the room. O'Mara has finished his direct examination.
4:18 p.m. ET: Lee says he knew the 911 call was going to be released to the Martin family so they could hear it. If you're showing a photo lineup, you should show it to each person individually "so their decision is not influenced," according to Lee. He says a similar process should be done with audio.
4:14 p.m. ET: The defense has called Bill Ray Lee Jr. to the witness stand. He is the former Chief of Police for the Sanford Police Department.

 

4:11 p.m. ET: The police said Martin told them it wasn't his son screaming on the call. Martin says he never told his lawyer to say that the police had lied. Tracy Martin has been excused.
4:09 p.m. ET: "You were playing that recording over and over. You were stilling dealing with his death?" asked de la Rionda, in reference to Martin listening to the call in the mayor's office.
"Yes," said Martin. "I was just trying to figure out... why did the defendant get out of his vehicle and chase my son?" said Martin.
The prosecutor has finished his questions.
4:07 p.m. ET: "Basically what I was listening to, I was listening to my son's last cry for help. I was listening to his life being taken and I was trying to come to grips with that, that Trayvon was here no more. It was just tough," said Martin.
4:05 p.m. ET: "You still, at that time, were in denial in the sense of not wanting to believe your son was dead?" asked prosecutor de la Rionda.
"Correct," said Martin.
"You realized that that was the shot -- " said de la Rionda.
"-- That killed my son, yes," said Martin.
"Did you really know what to do at that point?" asked de la Rionda.
"My world was, from that point until today, my world has just been turned upside down," said Martin.
4:01 p.m. ET: The day after the shooting, officers came to Martin's home and asked him to identify his son because he didn't have identification on him. Prosecutor de la Rionda asks if police showed him a picture of his son's body on the ground. The defense objects and the attorneys are at a sidebar.
3:59 p.m. ET: "It's very difficult to believe that Trayvon's not living. As I've said over and over, my best friend in life, and to have him gone is tragic," said Martin.
3:58 p.m. ET: O'Mara asks Martin about listening to the tape with family members at the mayor's office.
"After listening to the tape maybe 20 times, I said I knew it was Trayvon's voice. I didn't direct that towards any family members. Matter of fact, I think the family members had started leaving out the room. It was too much for them, they couldn't take it," said Martin.
O'Mara has finished his direct examination.
3:54 p.m. ET: The defense has called Trayvon Martin's father, Tracy Martin, to the stand. O'Mara is asking him about the voice heard screaming on the background of the call.
"As best as I recall, after he played the tape he basically just said, 'Do you recognize the voice?'" said Martin.
"And what was your response?" asked O'Mara.
"My response was that I didn't tell him, 'No that wasn't Trayvon.' I think I kind of pushed away from the table and kind of shook my head and said, 'I can't tell," said Martin. He says he has no knowledge of an enhanced version of the call and he didn't tell anyone he had listened to one.

 

3:50 p.m. ET: The jury is being seated.
3:39 p.m. ET: The judge is back on the bench and the attorneys are at a sidebar.
3:20 p.m. ET: The judge has recessed court for 15 minutes.
3:19 p.m. ET: When Zimmerman was last at the gym, Pollack says: "He had lost quite a bit of weight so he was in physically better shape but he still had a long way to go. He wasn't shredded and ripped like a competitive fighter." He agrees with O'Mara that he would still consider Zimmerman to be "soft" at this point. This witness has been excused.
3:18 p.m. ET: Pollack says Zimmerman was still working on his jab.
"He had not gotten proficient, truly proficient, with any of it," said Pollack. "He was a hard worker but he was no an accomplished athlete in any shape or form."
3:17 p.m. ET: Prosecutor Mantei has finished his cross-examination of Pollack. Defense attorney O'Mara is now asking more questions.
3:15 p.m. ET: Pollack says Zimmerman did several months of grappling classes then switched to boxing classes when his school schedule changed. He would have done a max of six hours per week of classes.
3:13 p.m. ET: Zimmerman would have learned foot work first, then how to hold his body position, then he would learn a jab, a straight right hand, then a hook and then combinations.
3:11 p.m. ET: Pollack says you can't arm-lock somebody from the ground position. "You have to be extremely skilled," said Pollack and agreed that Zimmerman didn't have the skills for this maneuver.
3:10 p.m. ET: "A one-minute round can seem like eternity if you're not in condition for it," said Pollack.
3:09 p.m. ET: Pollack says he wouldn't teach a beginner about the first blow strategy because they'd need the foundation first. He also says if you can't execute it well, it could leave you open to quick counter attack.
3:07 p.m. ET: Zimmerman was 250-260 pounds when he joined the gym and lost between 50-80 pounds, according to Pollack.
3:06 p.m. ET: Pollack says he doesn't know if Zimmerman joined another gym or was working out at home while taking a hiatus from his gym.
3:04 p.m. ET: Pollack says he would describe Zimmerman as "non-athletic."
"He was -- and I don't really like to use this terminology – soft, just physically soft. He was an overweight, large man, and a very pleasant, nice man. But physically soft," said Pollack. O'Mara has completed his direct examination.
3:01 p.m. ET: Pollack saw Zimmerman a few days after the shooting.
"He had black eyes, his nose was scraped up, he had some bandages on his head… he looked emotionally traumatized," said Pollack. "He had the look of a human being who had been through an extremely traumatic experience and was traumatized from it."
2:58 p.m. ET: Zimmerman was obese when he first came to the gym, according to Pollack. Both the dietary changes and exercise program helped Zimmerman get in better shape. Pollack wouldn't teach Zimmerman how to kick because "he didn't have a handle on punching."
2:57 p.m. ET: On a scale of 1 to 10 in regards to boxing proficiency, Pollack gives Zimmerman a 0.5 when he first started.
Pollack says Zimmerman never got in the ring -- "He wasn't skilled enough for that."
After training, Pollack says of Zimmerman: "He's still learning how to punch, he didn't really know how to effectively punch."
"Did he ever get to the point where he could box somebody else?" asked defense attorney O'Mara.
"Absolutely not," said Pollack.
2:53 p.m. ET: Pollack also gives Zimmerman "about a 1" on a scale of 10 when it comes to his overall athleticism.
2:52 p.m. ET: Pollack said that after a year of training, he would give Zimmerman a 1 or 1.5 on a scale of 10
"It's not that he made such little progress, it's a tremendous amount of work," said Pollack.
2:51 p.m. ET: Pollack gives Zimmerman a 0.5 on a scale of 10 before his training started. Pollack says Zimmerman trained for about a year, except for a few months of hiatus. He took classes on grappling, boxing and would occasionally come in on his own.
2:48 p.m. ET: Zimmerman wanted to box, but the classes didn't fit his schedule, so Pollack had him start grappling. Zimmerman would have learned chokes, arm locks, leg locks -- "Basically make the person say, 'Uncle,'" said Pollack. Training sessions are normally two hours long and Zimmerman would have taken classes 2-3 times each week.
2:45 p.m. ET: Pollack says he met Zimmerman in October 2010: "He came to the gym to lose weight and get in shape." Pollack says he put Zimmerman on a diet and started an exercise program, which was tailored around his schedule.
2:43 p.m. ET: "When you're on the top, you have gravity working for you. So if you strike downward, it's going to be extremely effective for you," said Pollack. He also describes a term called "shrimping" where the person on the bottom tries to get free.
2:42 p.m. ET: O'Mara gets on the ground and has Pollack show him a mounted position. Pollack says the knees of the person on top should be above the waist of the person on the bottom. He says the person on top has a better advantage from this position.

 

2:39 p.m. ET: On the benefit of getting the first punch in, Pollack says: "If you're effective with it, that's going to put you in a much stronger position over your opponent."
2:38 p.m. ET: Defense attorney O'Mara asks Pollack about the term "ground and pound." Pollack says you have to get an opponent on the ground, keep them on the ground and start striking them from the top, downwards.
"If you're effective with the first blow, that can effectively end the match immediately," said Pollack.
2:35 p.m. ET: Pollack describes mixed-martial arts (MMA) as a "competitive fighting sport that has gotten extremely popular recently." You can fold kickboxing and wrestling into it, according to Pollack.
2:33 p.m. ET: The defense has called Adam Pollack to the witness stand. He is a trainer and has owned a gym for 14 years. He says he has been involved in fight training for most of his life.

 

2:29 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar.
2:28 p.m. ET: "To know that he was hearing the sound that ended his son's life – it was tough to watch," said Singleton. She said Tracy Martin didn't lose it but you could see he was upset. She agreed with the prosecutor that he acted appropriately fo

Enough is enough!

EPA Wants Gov't To Control How Cold Your Beer Can Be

Jul 09, 2013 05:32 pm | Breaking News

Regulation: No longer the stuff of science fiction, a little-noticed change in energy-efficiency requirements for appliances could lead to government controlling the power used in your home and how you set your thermostat. In a seemingly innocuous revision of its Energy Star efficiency requirements announced June 27, the Environmental Protection Agency included an "optional" requirement for [...]

Fed Fuel Regulations Throw Jobs Overboard

Jul 09, 2013 05:20 pm | Breaking News

The Environmental Protection Agency acts as if every new burdensome demand makes a huge difference for the health and wellbeing of humans, in addition to claims that its costly, excessive regulations upon private business are actual net job creators. The data and facts easily debunk the agency's junk science and alien economics, but unfortunately reality has failed [...]

During the Fourth of July celebrations, you probably thought about the freedoms we enjoy in the USA. Perhaps you even pondered how those freedoms are slipping away right before your eyes.

Nothing Shocks Me....

Our President and his Attorney General Eric Holder;  the President who was going to end all of the divide here in the Nation,  and reduce hatred in this Nation between Republicans and Democrats,  Blacks and Whites,  Rich and Poor, utilized an arm of the DOJ to promote and fan the racial hatred last February here in Central Florida:

The Secret of President Obama's Middle East Policy Is Revealed: Preemptive Surrender




Finally! The Secret of President Obama's Middle East Policy Is Revealed (Really, No Kidding)

Jul 09, 2013 12:24 pm | Jeff Dunetz

By Barry Rubin

Note: I beg you to read this article and I've never said that before. I think in the wake of the Egyptian coup, everything has come clearly together on U.S. Middle East policy. This is the most important article I've written in 2.5 years, since predicting the first Egyptian revolution in October 2010. Here is the story.

A statement by two National Security Council senior staff members has revealed the inner thinking of President Barack Obama. It is of incredible importance and I plead with you to read it. If you do you will comprehend fully what's going on with U.S. foreign policy.

Egypt, Egypt, Egypt…There are more words written about this event than demonstrators in Tahrir Square. But, to quote a recent secretary of state on Benghazi, what difference does it make? A great deal indeed.

First, let's remember that in the face of advancing totalitarianism in the Middle East, U.S. policy completely failed. Imagine, if you wish, what would have happened with the Nazis without Winston Churchill and Great Britain in the 1940s. The U.S. government of this day was not only ready to leave Middle Easterners to their fate; it even sided with their actual or potential oppressors.

So who has been waging the battle meanwhile? The people of Iran and Turkey, who have not won because in part the United States failed to encourage the former and did not encourage the Turkish army to do what the Egyptian army did do; the embattled Tunisian and Lebanese anti-Islamists; the Saudis (at times) and the Persian Gulf Arabs (except for Qatar) and Jordan. Oh yes, and also Israel the most slandered and falsely reviled country on earth.

Second, the Benghazi affair was the model of the Obama Administration worldview: If you allow a video insulting Muslims, four American officials will be killed. If you support the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, thousands of Americans might die. This is the result of placing not politics but counterterrorism in command.

And this leads to…Barack Obama's Big Decision

Is President Obama going to come down on the side of the Islamist ex-regime, remember this includes the Salafists in objective terms, or the new regime? What a remarkable irony that Obama endlessly apologized for past U.S. support for dictators and ended up adding a new chapter to that history and heightened anti-Americanism! Remember that one of his last conversations with ex-President Muhammad al-Mursi.

Obama told him that he still regarded him as the democratically elected president of Egypt.

Of course, Obama will have to end up recognizing the new government. The question is how much and how long he will resist that? It is pitiful to know that the best possible result is that he will accept the rulers in Cairo and continue the economic aid. In fact, he should increase it. We should not be talking punishment for the coup but in fact a rich reward, to show others which way the wind blows.

Specifically, U.S. diplomats were urging a deal: a coalition government in Egypt in which the Brotherhood has part of the power. You can imagine how well that would work and how grateful the Brotherhood (much less the Salafists) and their opponents will be to Obama for proposing they surrender. So in other words, the army, the former opposition, and the Islamists--in short, all of the Egyptian people no matter which side they are on, will see America as their enemy.

And will Obama learn more lessons from this situation? Will he stop seeking to install a regime in Syria that is worse than Mursi's? Will he increase support for the real Iranian, Turkish, and Lebanese oppositions? Will he recognize the true strategic realities of Israel and stop seeking to install a regime like Mursi's in the territories captured by Israel in 1967 (I refer here to Hamas, not the Palestinian Authority which might well give way to Hamas after a state would be established?)

So far though, it looks like Obama is determined to be the protector of oppressive dictatorship in Egypt. Isn't that what Obama complained about what previous presidents had done? The Obama Administration has called on Egyptian leaders to pursue, "A transparent political process that is inclusive of all parties and groups," including "avoiding any arbitrary arrests of Mursi and his supporters," Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the National Security Council, said July 4 in a statement.

I don't recall such a statement being made in criticism of the Mursi regime. According to Bloomberg News, "Two U.S. officials who asked not to be identified commenting on[Obama\s]private communications—I assume it was really because they were too ashamed-- said the administration is concerned that some in the military may want to provoke the violence and provide a rationale for crushing the movement once and for all."

Then comes a critical statement that explains Obama Middle East policy. Pay close attention to this:

"Such a move would fail and probably prompt a shift to al-Qaeda type terrorist tactics by extremists in the Islamist movement in Egypt and elsewhere, the U.S. officials said."

What is this saying? Remember this is a White House policy statement for all practical purposes. That if the Muslim Brotherhood or perhaps the Salafists are denied power in Muslim-majority countries they cannot be defeated but that they will be radicalized so that they will launch September 11 style attacks on America.

In other words, the United States must surrender and betray its allies or else it faces disaster. This is called surrender and appeasement. And, besides, such a move would fail. There is a coherent Obama policy. Inquire no more, that is it.

And that's why, for example, it wants the Turkish and Egyptian armies to accept an Islamist regime; and Syria for getting one, too; and Israel making whatever risks or concessions required to end the conflict right away no matter what the consequences. American officials say that the actually illusory demographic issue--which is simply nonsense--means that Israel better make the best deal possible now.

American allies cannot win and if they try they'll just make the Islamists angrier. The White House, it is forgotten now, even wanted to overthrow the pro-American regime in Bahrain and might have helped them replace it if the Saudis hadn't stopped them.

I am not joking. I wish I were.

Remember what the two NSC staffers said, in representing Obama policy because they deserve and may well go down in history:

"Such a move [fighting the Islamists in Egypt would fail and probably prompt a shift to al-Qaeda type terrorist tactics by extremists in the Islamist movement in Egypt and elsewhere."

The Obama administration, on the basis of the current CIA director John Brennan's Doctrine has given up the battle. The Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists are holding the United States for ransom. The demand for releasing (which means not attacking) the United States is the Middle East.

Naturally, this is also involved in domestic politics since the Obama Administration will be largely judged by voters—including in the 2014 congressional elections—on whether they can prevent such (imaginary) attacks. The theme is consistent, just another way of protecting the American people while accumulating more votes.

It should be emphasized that aside from everything else, this is a ridiculous U.S. strategy because the Brotherhood and Salafists haven't even thought of this tactic This isn't just a surrender; it's a preemptive surrender.
