Barack Obama, our next President

How to Be a Good Neocon When It Comes to Syria

....real neocons, it seems, do not get squishy when the question is US troops on Syrian soil. After Obama's press conference, a publicist for the American Center for Democracy shot out a press release touting the group's director, Rachel Ehrenfeld, and her proposals for action in Syria. She has three simple steps for the United States: bypass the United Nations and impose a no-fly zone in Syria; stop giving arms to rebels associated with Al Qaeda; and deploy US troops within Syria to secure chemical-weapons facilities. Given that Syria probably has scores, if not hundreds, of chemical-weapons sites, such a force would entail tens of thousands of US troops, perhaps hundreds of thousands. And these soldiers would likely have to fight their way to these sites.(No cake-walking here.)

Her proposal would entail invading Syria with a massive force of US troops. But Ehrenfeld's position is not that surprising, considering the board members and advisers for her American Center for Democracy. They include Richard Perle, one of the most hawkish neocons, who led the cheerleading for the invasion of Iraq, and former CIA chief R. James Woolsey, who after 9/11 promoted the neoconnish conspiracy theory that Saddam Hussein was the secret puppet master controlling Al Qaeda. On the ACD's list of advisers are retired Lt. General Thomas McInerney and retired Maj. General Paul Vallely, who were each over-the-top supporters of the Iraq War on Fox News.

Penis scientist Rush Limbaugh is reportedly upset with executives at his flagship station WABC and its parent company, Cumulus. He's so mad, in fact, that's he's reportedly threatening to leave the company. Why? Because Lew Dickey, Cumulus's CEO, is (probably correctly) blaming Limbaugh's “slut” comments last year for declining ad revenue at the company

Several major advertisers dropped support for Limbaugh after the “slut” incident, but Limbaugh and a source who spoke with the Daily News said the show's earnings were “very minimally impacted in the short term.”

Politico, however, notes that Dicky, on an August 2012 earnings call. said Cumulus's top three stations lost $5.5 million. Some of those losses, Dickey said, were because of the boycotts agains Limbaugh. In a March 2013 earnings call, Dickey said the company was still suffering because of the comments, blaming them for roughly a third of the company's revenue losses.

Things Go Horribly Wrong For Fox News When They Ask GOP Congressman for Benghazi Evidence

Fox News tried to push their Benghazi conspiracy theory today, but things went horribly wrong when they asked Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz for evidence and he couldn’t provide any.

Notice that Chris Wallace provided Chaffetz with the perfect setup. He let him weave the conspiracy theory. Wallace never stopped him, or challenged him. But when it came time for Rep. Chaffetz to deliver the money shot, he threw up all over his own shirt.

Ever since it was revealed that Boston bombings weren’t carried out by an overseas terrorist group, Fox News has gone back to relentlessly pushing Benghazi conspiracies. It has been subtle, but you can see it in Chaffetz’s remarks, the focus of the Benghazi conspiracy has shifted away from Obama and to the State Department.

Their conspiracy theory focus has shifted because the runaway favorite for the 2016 Democratic nomination just so happens to be the same woman who used to be Secretary of State. Fox News is only the propaganda arm. Chris Wallace did his job, but the Republican/Fox News plan to bring down Hillary Clinton with Benghazi fell flat on its face when Rep. Chaffetz has zero evidence to back up his charges.

Fox News could have gotten a week’s worth of programming out of anything that Chaffetz said, but he gave them nothing specific that they could use.

The big “news” bit of the segment quickly turned into a trainwreck, as Rep. Chaffetz’s conspiracy not could hold up even under the gentlest of scrutiny by Chris Wallace. What was supposed to be a big moment turned into a huge Fox fail that ended up proving the emptiness of their own Benghazi conspiracy.

ok you neo-idiots, how you gonna play that one?
How you gonna play this one you idiot? Othen than you are an extraordinary parade of bullshit sonicfiller. You in fact, make the Corporatist Barack Obama the most GMO-dedicated politician in America.

You don't attain that position through errors or oversights. Obama was, all along, a stealth operative on behalf of Monsanto, biotech, GMOs, and corporate control of the future of agriculture and democrats.

From sonifiller's perspective, Michelle Obama's campaign for home gardens and clean nutritious food suddenly looks like a diversion, a cover story floated to obscure what her husband has actually been doing.

Nor does it seem coincidental that two of the Obama's biggest supporters, Bill Gates and George Soros, purchased 900,000 and 500,000 shares of Monsanto, respectively, in 2010.

The point is you idiot is that we are talking about a sitting president here, a president obama who presented himself, and was believed by many to be, an extraordinary departure from politics as usual.

Not only was that a wrong assessment, Obama was lying all along. He was, and he still is, Monsanto's man in Washington.

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

“I'm not talking generally, I'm talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday.“And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”

“It's frightening, and they're doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said.“Not ‘we're going to kill you,’ or not ‘we're going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they're taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”

And Barack Obama? Well, he'll probably just respond to testimony by saying "Benghazi happened a long time ago."

1961

A military coup reestablishes Syria as an independent country, and a new civilian government is formed.

1963

A coalition of military officers, including Ba&#703;thist and Nasserist officers, seizes power in March. Soon after the coup, the Ba&#703;thist faction takes control, purging Nasserists in government and suppressing uprisings. Within the Ba&#703;th party in Syria, a split begins to develop between the party’s original leadership and younger members with a stronger commitment to socialist policies.

1966

Salah al-Jadid, a military officer and a member of the &#703;Alawite minority sect, seizes power at the head of a coup by the left-wing faction of the Ba&#703;th party. B&#299;&#7789;&#25 7;r and &#703;Aflaq are arrested. &#7716;afiz al-Assad, another &#703;Alawite officer, becomes the minister of defense. The Ba&#703;th party begins to split into a civilian faction headed by Jadid and a military faction headed by Assad.

BOSTON -- Lawyers for a man charged with lying to investigators after the Boston Marathon bombings are asking a federal judge to release him from jail, saying he had nothing to do with the deadly bombings and isn't a flight risk.

Robel Phillipos, 19, of Cambridge, faces a detention hearing Monday in U.S. District Court. Defense attorneys said in court documents filed Saturday that authorities' claim that Phillipos gave them conflicting accounts is "refutable."

1976

Syria intervenes in the Lebanese civil war, sending a force of 25,000 soldiers to Lebanon to prevent the defeat of right-wing Christian militias. Syria’s military presence in Lebanon continues for nearly three decades, enabling Syria to exert significant influence on Lebanese politics.

1979

The U.S. State Department designates Syria a state sponsor of terrorism, citing its alleged support for Palestinian militant groups. The designation carries economic sanctions.

1980

Islamist resistance to the Assad regime grows. Islamist and secular opposition groups organize demonstrations and riots around the country. A member of the Muslim Brotherhood attempts to assassinate Assad.

1982

Islamist forces briefly take over the city of &#7716;am&#257;h. The Syrian military launches a full-scale assault to put down the rebellion, destroying large areas of the city and killing thousands of civilians.

Note-NO Bushes as POTUS for another 6 years. After one term --along came Clinton for the double term.
