Susan Rice withdraws her name from Secretary of State consideration

This is article 52 of 116 in the topic Obama Appointments

We don’t know exactly how this came about yet. Maybe the White House didn’t want Rice’s SoS Senate confirmation to turn into a high profile Benghazi grilling.

From Yahoo News:

Susan Rice, the embattled U.S. Ambassador for the U. N., withdrew her name from consideration Thursday to be Secretary of State.

President Barack Obama confirmed the news in a statement Thursday afternoon, saying “While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first.”

In a related story, John Kerry was spotted in Hillary’s current office measuring for curtains.

By way of Allahpundit at Hot Air, much of the MSM will take a predictable angle on this, and it’s demonstrated here courtesy of Andrea Mitchell.

Update: Nice Deb adds:

And any anger she feels toward Republicans for her misfortune is misdirected. There is only one person she should be mad at for losing her the plum position of Sec. of State, and that’s the guy who sent her out there to lie on the Sunday talk shows like a ridiculous hack, making her ineligible for the job.

President Obama: Jihad Your Chance to Win the Election

by Michael R. Shannon on Monday, September 17th, 2012

This is article 96 of 117 in the topic Muslims/Koran

The term for Christians and other non–Moslems living in Islamic countries is “dhimmi.” Think of it as Jim Crow with a turban. Think of it as Jim Crow right now.

According to Mitchell Bard, dhimmis in Islamic lands “on pain of death, were forbidden to mock or criticize the Koran, Islam or Muhammad, to proselytize among Moslems or to touch a Moslem woman.”

Dhimmis were forbidden to hold public office, serve in the armed forces or own weapons. Non–Moslems cannot build synagogues or churches taller than mosques, construct houses taller than those of Moslems or drink wine in public, which helps to explain Donald Trump’s absence.

A dhimmi’s testimony in court was worthless, which meant attacking dhimmis was penalty–free for Moslems, just like today.

But one doesn’t have to live in the Middle East to be a dhimmi. You could be the President of the United States and impose dhimmitude on an entire nation.

Obama orders our soldiers to wear white gloves when touching the Koran (no word on whether the troops are required to suit up before touching the Bible or Bagvad Gita) and avoid drinking or eating in front of Moslems during their Ramadan fast.

His administration can insist there is no nexus between Islam and terrorism; and collaborate with Muslim Brotherhood front groups here at home.

And the President can treat the murder of our Libyan ambassador and an attack on our embassy in Egypt as simply a random act in response to provocation from US citizens.

In full dhimmi mode the embassy in Cairo and Sec. of State Hillary Clinton scrambled to burn the Constitution in a futile effort to placate readers of the Koran. “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims…” the statement read. “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

The death of the ambassador presented a problem for the State Department since he was important, and not a grunt in Afghanistan. They couldn’t blame his death on asking to see photos of a Moslem’s wife and kids, like the military does in “green on blue” attacks in Kabul.

So Hillary “strongly condemned the attack” and asked the same Libyans who allowed the murder to provide additional protection for the rubble.

An attack on an embassy or the murder of an ambassador is not a law enforcement problem. It’s an act of war. The proper response is not a hand–wringing statement and a eulogy for Ambassador Chris Stevens.

That would be like FDR — Obama’s hero — issuing a statement after Pearl Harbor that saluted the dead, praised them for their public service and failed to mention the attack by Japan.

The proper response to an act of war is a demand the perpetrators be handed over immediately.

And until then, the US 6th fleet should blockade Libyan ports and institute a no–fly zone over every airport. In the case of Egypt, the administration should end discussions on forgiving its $1 billion debt and Egypt should not get a penny of the $1.5 billion in aid until rioters who violated US sovereignty are turned over.

(On second thought, keep the rioters.

Obama syndicate plans imminent takeover of USA by Islam and globalists

by Sher Zieve on Sunday, February 26th, 2012

This is article 67 of 117 in the topic Muslims/Koran

While Congress ignores it (or secretly supports it), the US courts continue to fall one by one towards accepting and utilizing Shari’a law in place of US law and the wholly-owned-by-the-totalitarian-Left-and/or-the-Saudis (same thing) media continue their mindless and largely irrelevant programming (to continue the mesmerization of the American people) Obama is openly supporting and assisting the Islamist takeover of the USA. I have been writing about this since prior to the Obama syndicate’s usurpation of the White House. However, it’s comforting to know that my more well-known brethren have at last gotten the message and are now, also, writing about it. In the end, we are all in this together!

Recently, Senior Fellow for European Politics at the Madrid-based Grupo de Estudios Soeren Kern wrote in his article “Caliphate Conference” Seeks to Islamize Europe, U.S.”: “The explicit aim of the Istanbul Process — currently backed by the Obama administration — is to make it an international crime to criticize Islam. A Muslim fundamentalist group is organizing a conference focused on turning Austria and other European countries into Islamic states.

“The “Caliphate Conference 2012″ will be held on March 10 in the Austrian town of Vösendorf, situated just south of Vienna. The main theme of the event will be “The Caliphate: The State Model of the Future.”

“The conference is being organized by Hizb ut-Tahrir [Party of Liberation], a pan-Islamic extremist group that seeks to establish a global Islamic state, or caliphate, ruled by Islamic Sharia law.”

Shortly thereafter, WND published the article “Planning for Islamic Caliphate Begins” in which it exposes a December 2011 Islamist Conference held in Washington D.C. — also with support from Obama — at which Sec. of State Hillary Clinton spoke in favor of the Islamists’ plans to stop anti-Islam speech in the USA. The “Istanbul Process” (also SURPRISE — SURPRISE is supported by the U.N.) would deny anti-Islamic speech, only, and if any anti-Muslim/Islam speech leads to said Muslims rioting and pillaging (which is what they do on a regular basis, anyway) the speaker would be held liable, jailed or worse.

The above is happening now. Source it for yourselves or take a look at the references below. This would also be an excellent campaign strategy for Obama…jailing anyone who has spoken out against the Satanic Islamic cult. That’s most — if not all — of we Constitutionalists.

So, we have a dictatorial group now ruling — not governing — us which has destroyed our jobs and is in the process of destroying the employers who provide those jobs. It is, also, gutting our US Treasury, taking our money and spending it on the globalists, Islam and whatever other groups wanting and working with Obama to destroy what used to be our country. This same Obama syndicate has ordered military drills (aka “urban warfare”) in many of our cities including, but not limited to, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston and Little Rock, has ensured that gasoline and energy prices are reaching unprecedented highs (how better to immobilize a population?), is beginning its takeover of raising our children (did you see the articles about the Obama Food Police checking 4-6 year olds lunches) and Michele Obama has even limited how large candy bars are allowed to be.

Marco Rubio Presents a “Clear and Present Danger”, Says Former State Dept. Chief of Staff

by Humberto Fontova on Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Well, it’s about time somebody had the guts to say it! It’s high time to quit coddling a mostly foreign-born ethnic group that brazenly supports– and even harbors– terrorists! Many Americans have had it up to here with these swarthy, screaming, fist-pumping hot-heads! This Trojan horse against our national security must be called out! Exposed!

Retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who served as Sec. of State Colin Powell’s Chief of Staff, and teaches a course on National Security at George Washington University stepped to the plate. He took it upon himself to grab the torch from Billy Mitchell, George Patton, Doug Mc Arthur, John Singlaub and call out America’s hidden enemies point-blank–along with their powerful political patrons and partners in subversion.

“…the hardcore Cuban-American lobby… has long since outlived any benefit to the United States it might have once offered,” he wrote this week. “In fact, that special interest group today constitutes a clear and present danger to the real security interests of the United States.” So there!

Though a legislator rather than a lobbyist, Senator Marco Rubio is as proud and outspoken a member of that “special-interest” group as exists in the U.S. Indeed his first filed amendment went for the very throat of Col. Wilkerson’s “special-interest,” also known as subsidizing Castro’s Stalinist regime, also known as the current state-sponsor-of-terror that came closest to nuking Col. Wilkerson’s homeland.

“There is no reason for the United States to help enrich state sponsors of terrorism,” declared Senator Rubio back in February in response to the Obama administrations further opening of travel, “cultural- exchanges” and remittances from the U.S. to Castro’s fiefdom. “I hope my colleagues will join me in supporting this effort to ensure that U.S. policy does not expose our nation to new security risks and increased security costs.”

“Cuba is Intelligence Trafficker to the World,” reveals Lieut. Col Christopher Simmons, until recent retirement, the Defense Intelligence Agency’s top Cuba spycatcher. Among other missions, Cuban spies in the U.S., often working undercover as “diplomats,” “scholars” and “cultural ambassadors”, stole U.S. military secrets and delivered them to Iraq, Panama and Grenada, alerting these regimes to U.S. plans.

Col. Wilkerson ranks right up there with Jimmy Carter as among Castro’s favorite yankees. This “credit to his nationality” as Castro might put it, is frequently showcased by Castro’s propaganda ministry while he lobbies for his heartfelt special-interests, so obviously dear to Castro’s own heart.

But Wilkerson’s “special-interest” doesn’t stop with lobbying for increased cash-flow from the U.S. to Castro. He also lobbies for freeing Castro’s spies and terrorists convicted in U.S. courts. Along with Jimmy Carter, and joining forces with Danny Glover, Bonnie Raitt, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Benicio del Toro, Jackson Browne among many other experts in U.S. Appellate court procedures, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson agonizes over the fate of the “Cuban Five,” denounces the judicial process that convicted them and lobbies for their immediate and unconditional release to Cuba.

Colorado Sec. of State: 12,000 Non-Citizens Registered to Vote; 5,000 Voted in 2010

by Doug Powers on Friday, April 1st, 2011

This is article 232 of 374 in the topic Elections

Michelle’s written extensively on this subject, and here’s another one for the growing pile.

From The Hill:

Republicans on the House Administration Committee want to shore up voter registration rules in the wake of a Colorado study that found as many as 5,000 non-citizens in the state took part in last year’s election.

Rep. Gregg Harper (R-Miss.), the panel’s chairman, called the study “a disturbing wake-up call” that should cause every state to review its safeguards to prevent illegal voting.
[...]
Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, a Republican, told the panel that his department’s study identified nearly 12,000 people who were not citizens but were still registered to vote in Colorado.

Of those non-citizen registered voters, nearly 5,000 took part in the 2010 general election in which Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet narrowly defeated Republican John Buck.

House Democrats were naturally alarmed by the report and were eager to help develop a bi-partisan plan to ensure only legal US citizens are allowed to cast ballots:

Rep. Charles Gonzalez (D-Texas) raised doubts about the reporting, noting that the study itself said it was based on inconclusive data and that it was “impossible to provide precise numbers” on how many people who were registered to vote in the state were not citizens.

Did I say develop a plan to fix the problem? I meant pretend it doesn’t exist. Expecting congressional Dems to seriously address this problem is like waiting for Michael Moore to permanently seal off the tunnel between his basement and the fry vat at McDonalds.

Hillary: Mexico increasingly looks like Colombia 20 years ago

by Greg Hedgepath on Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Sec of State Hillary Clinton

Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton said that before the increase in drug violence, Mexico increasingly looks like Colombia 20 years ago and reiterated that the United States continues to support the fight against drug trafficking.

During a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, Clinton said that will require a combination of improved capacity and “political will” to prevent the problem from spreading to other countries.

“Mexico has the capacity and has been using it against drug traffickers, but the Central American countries do not, said Clinton, who stressed that President Felipe Calderón deserves high marks for his courage to fight organized crime.”

In that sense, the chief U.S. diplomat reiterated the U.S. government to continue supporting Mexico in its fight against drug violence, which since 2006 has killed more than 28 thousand people.

In response, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) and the Homeland Security spokesman, Alejandro Poire, rejected Clinton’s remarks.  MPs and senators were concerned that this comparison is the beginning of a possible intervention of American troops in the country.

Alejandro Gonzalez Alcocer, rejected the assertion that Hillary Clinton is interventionist. But, he said, she is realistic.  Although he confided that this comparison of Mexico’s Violence and that of Columbia South America 20 years ago is not the beginning for the active involvement of U.S. troops in Mexico, as occurred in Colombia.
