What drives me batty is the fact that so many ovines shrug,blink stupidly,and say,"hmhm,yup."We have no idea the awesome gift we're pissing away.Nobody's ever pissed away such a gift because noone's ever been bequeathed such a gift.Our (in)actions clearly demonstrate that we eran't worthy.I'm so sorry,Benjamin,Thomas,Paul,Patrick,John,George,Tom...
If our ambassador had a security detail like those escorting Valerie Jarrett, he’d be alive today.
This whole tragic incident screams of Obama's incompetence. They are lying to protect him and he won't admit he screwed up (again).
How so-called Americans can continue to support this monster is unbelievable. I'm still mad as heck over this and now even more so over the deflection by this corrupt regime and it's complicit media. They are so blatantly dodging the truth that it's sickening. But the lemmings will continue to follow this Pied Piper right over the cliff and squeal as they do it.
Why do they keep calling it "horrific"? I've watched it...and although the acting is atrocious, the underlying premise is true.
This filmmaker is an American hero!
Stop cowering media. The truth about islam needs to come out.
"The Mob." That's how we reference 7th century pedophile worshipers nowadays. Hahaha! Mark Steyn is brilliant.
......or like the security detail surrounding Valerie Jarret on her vacation. At taxpayers expense, of course.
Mark Steyn is brilliant. What troubles me most is that he's so correct in his comment that if the American ambassador had the same level of protection that the guy in California had, he'd still be alive today. How terrible is it that you have the Obama administration constantly saying that this is about a video, and yet the American ambassador in an ultra-violent part of a country like Libya had almost no protection at all? And to say that local forces provided "some" protection is a laugh at best. There is NO replacement for a heavily-armed Marine guard. Obama's people still have a lot of explaining to do, and they'll keep on having to do it right up to the election. Not that we'll get any answers from them.
Great idea: Shrillary and Pres Zero SHOULD go work for "Variety"
I mean right now . . . GO, GET OUT OF HERE!!
Mark Stern is fantastic. I'd love to see him go head to head with Obama in a debate. He would humiliate Obama.
If Obama had taken Intel meetings leading up to 9-11, the ambassador would be alive today. Was Obama worried about "plausible denial" or worried about being forced to do something to stop the attacks...or both?
"If Obama had taken Intel meetings leading up to 9-11, the ambassador would be alive today."
I doubt it. Being present doesn't mean he'd listen or care.
I think he made that holiday fall on 9/11 so he could whitewash remembrance of the attacks.
Plenty of us here call Obama a traitor. He has earned impeachment many times over, but there's no sense in starting proceedings because Reid would shut them down in the senate. Additionally, could you imagine the backlash if we impeach the first black President? Not that I care, but too many people are worried about how it makes us look rather than doing what's right.
Credibility issue? Mark, this administration hasn't had any credibility since they were inaugurated.
Sheriff Leroy Baca, LA County is Quite the Muslim Sympathizer
Greetings from Sheriff Baca expressing his deep respect for CAIR
Baca created the LA Muslim American Homeland Security Congress in 2005.
Baca Established Muslim Community Affairs unit was 2007 as outreach program for the Muslim Community managed by the Muslim Sheriff's Department. The sheriffs unit includes a training program for the Muslim community on law enforcement issues such as hate crimes, domestic violence, gangs.
Creaed Young Muslim American Leaders Group (YMALG) was also developed. Providing for jail tours, recruitment activities, ride-alongs in department helicopters and tours of patrol stations, engagement and education of young Muslim professionals.
The Muslim Community Affairs unit also runs required training of department members about Islam and Muslim culture, customs, and beliefs.

dangerous level of dhimmietude deep in department
and this too..................
Heralded by the Muslim Public Affairs Council for standing up fo muslims at Peter King's Homeland Security hearings on islamic infiltration.
National American Coptic Assembly on Sherriff Baca
I started watching the first video of his speech to CAIR, but I had to stop when I started regurgitating my lunch. This is disgusting. California panders to the illegals and the muslims. Not a chance in hell I'll ever visit there, much less move there.
This should not be suprising when back in 08' Presidential Candidate Barry Sorentoro asked a judge to silence Dr. Corsi.
They also told organizations they couldn't speak out against Obamacare. I don't remember the details, but maybe someone else does.
And when Joe Bidens, son, the Attorney General of Delaware, had Larry Sinclair arrested to shut him up
more security at valerie jarretts daughter's wedding in chicago this summer. go figure.
like mark steyn.. he tells it like it is.
Mark is another national treasure. He has ties to Australia, so we'd better take care to keep him Stateside. No-one matches his acerbic wit quite so bitingly!
Meanwhile, two more Marines were killed by the Taliban on Friday in the attack on Camp Bastion, Helmand province. The 15 terrorists were dressed in US Army uniforms. And this after even more afghan security trainees killed four US and two British servicemen. 36 attacks by afghanis on Allied troops - result, the murder of 51 Allies YTD.
One of the Marines was a highly decorated squadron leader who had already served in Iraq, the other was also an outstanding young man considering he had only seven years to accrue his many service medals. The Pentagon said in a 'terse' statement that Lt. Col. Christopher K. Raible, 40, of Huntingdon, Pa., and Sgt. Bradley W. Atwell, 27, of Kokomo, Ind., died in the Friday attack.
A commenter at the website where I read this says:
"At least Chris got to shoot some of the bastoids with his 9mm before they got him with an RPG.
Wonder how the bastoids got the ARMY Uniforms?
Thanks to the libtards bitching about AMERICAN companies providing services to our deployed forces (e.g. KBR / Haliburton) we now use the locals for such...doing laundry, cooking in the chow hall etc. So they come on the base, learn the lay of the land, act like good little helpers, then go home at night, put on their Taliban uniform (Or what they stole from the laundry) turn around and attack us.
Thanks to Barry Soetoro, we experienced the worst attack against deployed Marines and US Forces since Vietnam...this debacle is only grudgingly being reported...if it wasn't for the families talking....yelling and screaming really...the public would never hear about this.
One more insult? Word has it that the Army is so screwed up at Arlington that there's a backlog so long, families have no idea when their loved ones ceremonies will take place. Not just days...possibly WEEKS!!!
We need a president who has some respect for the military, preferably one who has actually served in combat."
Please forgive the long post - but the neglect of all our brave Soldiers is criminal. The LTC had a wife and three children.
I am just so heartsick, and disgusted that they have such unworthy commanders as zero, Dempsey and other military leaders who seem to confuse their proper role with that of policticians.
We have a newspaper up here called the National Post.It's a pretty good sheet,but my friend Jimbo quit reading it when they dropped Steyn.If he had a computer,he'd miss a month's worth of the NFL just catching up.
So....where's that body count the media was bound determined to bring up every day under Bush? Obama is racking them up and not a word. Disrespectful jerks.
Burning Half a Million Korans
I love Mark Steyn. He's so right about this! It's a rediculous argument, but of course the left is deadly rediculous.
amen! there's always an icecream cup at Burger King and its art! Does no one remember THAT idiocy? There was shouting, flag burning, and screams about the art on an icecream cup at BK in England. This video has NAUGHT to do with the attack.
"If our ambassador had a security detail like those escorting the Muhammad filmmaker, he’d be alive today"...or a security detail like President Valerie Jarrett has.
So true..it does seem really backwards..it's like this administration trusts other countries more then this one..and their dead guys..don't even deserve the truth..even in the face of their memorial, they were more interested in covering their own backsides, then telling the families the truth..and if they didn't see it coming then they have no business having the jobs they have. Why didn't they have security??..who's safety matters to them if it's not the U.S and our embassies..??? It's a little late now to tell them their lives are in danger..WE should of known their lives were always in danger..
I think I counted 8 sheriff's deputies there at his house at midnight just to be able to take him in, question him, and then let him go. Boy, I hope I never have an overdue parking ticket. The black ops helicopters (which seem to circle my house anyway) will be swooping down and coming in through the roof.
Note to self: better buy more ammo.
Neither. What I'm packing makes me feel all snuggly-safe (buying extra hollow points doesn't hurt either) and there ain't much that turns my bowels to water - except too much fruit. :)
We smug Canadians would say,"Oh,you crazy cowboys."We also said that while we've spent every minute since the end of WW II hiding behind your chaps,so to speak.
We have laws that allow it in the US. Even in Illinois, I can carry in my own home (for now, that is).
I just got an e-mail from a fellow Canadian.He clings to the story of "smoke inhalation".Evidently,he still refuses to view the photos.I've had a lot of people tell me I'm full of sh*t.Think even one troubled themselves to look at those pics?You know I think some people really do believe ignorance is bliss,and come hell or high water,noone's raining on their parade.
Nukeman, it is NOT as it seems and I'm really tired of the media (even FOX) spewing misinformation, and everyone buys it "hook, line and sinker". Mark Steyn even got it wrong on this one.
Please read my last comment on the Eric Bolling string and maybe my perspective will make some sense.
We should stay focused on the UN 1618 Resolution that WILL restrict our speech against anything the Islamic world finds offensive. That is more threatening than Peace Officers doing their job to protect the video guy whose life is now in danger. And no, he wasn't arrested..... etc.
I read your other post and I'm not sure where my statement contradicts it. There were at least 8 sheriff's deputies there, it was midnight, they (somebody) did question him, and they did let him go. That matches everything you stated from the LA press release. I have no doubts about it. Since he wasn't arrested, that was what my comment about the parking ticket was all about.
Now generally, when the authorities want to run you in, they find whatever charge will stick and if it doesn't, they have to let you go. But I wasn't implying that. As far as the FBI being involved, it could be because of the death threats, or it could be because the video, if found to have caused the deaths (which I don't believe it did), would be considered crossing state lines to commit a felony and the FBI always gets involved. None of us knows for sure yet.
As far as the UN Human Rights Counsel Resolution 1618, they are not truly a human rights counsel and as long as we get Obama out of office, we can then concentrate on getting the UN out of NY and be done with any of their globalization laws.
As to the 1st amendment, as with any of our amendments, it all starts with minor things and slowly escalates like the frog in the boiling water. We should all be vigilant on every case.
Oh that is right Maxine he was not arrested...he willingly needed 8 Sheriffs in the middle of the night because he volunteered so gracefully to come in and have TEA AND MUFFINS!! Wake up!! What a stupid statement...Oh he was not arrested he came in willingly..Sure most people do that in the middle of the night with that many Law Enforcement. But go focus on that UN Resolution and Peace Officers...Peace My Foot!
Gosh Michael, I'm not sure why you are angry at me for presenting a few more facts to the discussion. Did you read my last comment on the Eric Bolling link? If not, please do so, maybe then you will understand.
And yes, he DID need deputies for his protection (there were actually 9) due the death threats. Why the middle of the night? They were hoping some of the gaggle of media hacks would go home. I watched the video from that night, and the deputies were pushing the press back, and surrounded him for his protection, they didn't strong arm him.
Maxine I could care one RAT's BUTT about the UN...they can drop dead!! Their resolutions mean nothing! You are wrong..the focus needs to be on DEFEATING OBAMA and then the UN becomes irrelevant!!
Well, perhaps you should start paying attention and caring about the UN. That's not a put down Michael, but I'm just saying they do crap behind the scenes that are totally opposite of our Constitution (personal property rights, freedom of speech, 2nd Amendment restrictions..... the list goes on and on.) The current admin (and several in the past have been guilty) will bypass Congress to work on the "world agenda". The ultimate redistribution of wealth, and the decline of our basic civil liberties.
I do agree, our first step is to kick O to the curb, and then the UN!
Why bother picking you up when they will just send in the drones.
Note to self: check out that cloaking device.
They don't want to damage the house for those 14 illegal immigrants that will move in after I'm gone. This is Illinois where I live and I think they still waterboard conservatives here, at least in Chi-town. :)
No, no, no, no. I'm out in the boondocks where we don't even have to lock our doors. It's conservative here, unlike in Chi-town. I'm just south of Rockford. I spent 5 years in Chicago when I was just out of college. Loved it then, 'cause there was always something going on, but I wouldn't raise my kids there.
I rarely step foot in the city now.
Nuke, I didn't know you were in Chi-town. My sympathies. Of course I am near the liberal sinkhole called Seattle so I feel your pain.
