<quoted text>yes to your first question, and i'm having flashbacks to the impartial "moderator" in the debates--the one who gave O'Bumbles a pass on benghazi. and the whacko judge in NYC who let a dangerous career criminal leave thru a backdoor when detetctives were there to arrest him on another outstanding warrant.(the same "judge" ordered an expensive pink leather sofa for her office and called out sick a lot--she was eventually removed from the bench after years of anti-police, pro-criminal rulings).
That was my first flashback, too.

HOW TO PICK WINNERS A letter by a top Libyan official blames the attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens on Mohamed Morsi, the now deposed president of Egypt.

WND has verified the authenticity of the letter by Col. Mahmoud al-Sharif, the chief of the Department of Security of the Libyan government in Tripoli, written four days after the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi.

The letter mentions Morsi as being implicated in the planning that led to the Benghazi attack and identifies the Egyptian jihadist group Ansar Sharia as the group responsible.

The letter discloses that the bodies of three Americans killed in the attack along with Ambassador Stevens were desecrated in revenge for the production of an anti-Islam film, assumed to be “Innocence of the Muslims.” The film was produced by the imprisoned Mark Basseley Yousef, the person the Obama administration erroneously claimed was responsible for triggering for attack itself.

White House press secretary Jay Carney confirmed Wednesday the Obama administration has no change in plans to deliver F-16s to the Egyptian military. The U.S. most likely will deliver four F-16s in August, with another eight slated for December. The deliveries are part of the continuing U.S.$1.5 billion in aid scheduled to be dispersed to Egypt in the current fiscal year, despite the military coup that ousted the Muslim Brotherhood-backed Morsi.

Oh boo effin hooo, poor Georgie the murderer had to answer the judge; the judge is the boss of the courtroom whether you like it or not shorty.

Obama inherited the worst mess ever from the two biggest bunglers ever, yet the blind [AKA baggers]pretend that was when all the bad things began. Of course all baggers live in a world were the light of day never shines[Witness DB, Galt, Waxman, Shinning, Surprize, Eed, etc, etc,where politics supercedes intellect, common sense, and the facts. The fact that Obama is black only tends to incite and propel these neanderthal knuckle dragging misfits to the point of total hysteria thus creating delusional behavior, which is witnessed here daily. Their behavior is at the very least comical as none of them are smart enough to ever change anything or anyone with an IQ over room temperature. So I will simply sit back and enjoy their obvious misery as they do their daily fabricating in a futile attempt to overcome their obvious psychological issues.
obama is the biggist mess ever..

WHAT MAKES POLITICIANS EXPERTS AT EVERYTHING On June 7 President Barack Obama defended the two secret National Security Agency (NSA) spying programs that were exposed by whistleblower/leaker Edward Snowden, saying:“You can’t have 100% security, and also then have 100% privacy and zero inconvenience.”

Obama insisted “the right balance” had been struck between security and privacy, and said that we are “going to have to make some choices as a society Americans” so that the country can effectively fight terrorism.

This is a false choice, and a dangerous one for a free nation, according to several experts who spoke with Bob Sullivan of NBC News.

“You have pollsters and pundits and (National Intelligence Director James) Clapper saying,‘Do you want us to catch the terrorists or do you want privacy?’ But that’s a false choice. It’s like asking,‘Do you want the police to exist or not?’” Dan Solove, a privacy law expert at George Washington University Law School, told NBC.

Cybersecurity expert Bruce Schneier agrees.

“I’ve never liked the idea of security vs. privacy, because no one feels more secure in a surveillance state,” Schneier, author of “Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly About Security in an Insecure World,” told NBC.“There’s plenty of examples of security that doesn’t infringe on privacy. They are all around. Door locks. Fences … Firewalls. People are forgetting that quite a lot of security doesn’t affect privacy.

“The real dichotomy is liberty vs. control,” Schneier added (emphasis ours).

Furthermore, it’s not even clear if dragnet domestic surveillance is any good at fighting terrorism.

“Law enforcement is being sold bill of goods that the more data you get, the better your security is. We find that is not true,” Ashkan Soltani, an independent security researcher, told NBC News.

“The NSA has this fetish for data, and will get it any way they can, and get as much as they can,” Soltani added.“But old ladies who hoard newspapers say the same thing, that someday, this might be useful.”

Last month NSA chief Keith Alexander testified that the programs for bulk collection of domestic phone and Internet data prevented “dozens of terrorist events.”

Prof. James H. Fetzer: Washington Overtly Supporting Al-Qaeda in Syria
American philosopher and political author James H. Fetzer believes that the United States is openly supporting Al-Qaeda and the extremist Salafist and Takfiri groups in Syria and equipping the rebels and insurgents inside the country with sophisticated weapons and arms.

“The Assad forces are making great progress in putting down the artificial uprising, which gained public sympathy because of false flag massacres of villages in Syria, which were blamed on the government but appear to have been committed by mercenaries and others, just as the UN itself has concluded that the alleged use of chemical weapons in small quantities appears to have been done, not by the government, but by the rebels,” said Fetzer in an exclusive interview with Fars News Agency.

James H. Fetzer is a retired philosophy professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth. He has written several books on the philosophy of science, artificial intelligence, evolution and also tens of political articles about the 9/11 events and the U.S. foreign policy. Fetzer’s articles have appeared on a number of print and online publications including Veterans Today and Press TV.

In the wake of the ongoing crisis in Syria and the continued confrontation between the government forces and the foreign mercenaries, FNA has conducted an exclusive interview with Prof. Fetzer. What follows is the text of the interview.

Several Arab countries have dispatched mercenaries and fighters to take part in the ongoing battle against the government of President Bashar al-Assad. In what ways do these countries benefit from instability and insecurity in Syria? Why are they sending terrorists and fighters to Syria?

A: That Saudi Arabia and Qatar are both involved when they are both allies of the United States yet support diverse objectives reflects the complexity of the situation. Qatar supports the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, which came to power in Egypt and Tunisia, but where the Egyptian military coup has now stemmed that ascent. The U.S.-Saudi alliance appears to be intended to minimize the influence of the Brotherhood, while creating a counter-balance to the influence of Iran in the Middle East, which Israel also supports.

While the Brotherhood was founded in 1928 and may be the best organized and most politically powerful Arab political movement, its participation in the attempt to assassinate Gamal Abdel Nasser led to a political crackdown in Egypt, where many of its followers found refuge in Saudi Arabia. After supporting the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, the Saudis appear to be increasingly concerned about an increase in its influence, which they fear will promote Shiite interests at the expense of the Sunnis.

The Persian Gulf Cooperation Council–which was created to fashion a common plan among the Sunni monarchies of Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman–to resist Iran and support the Syrian rebels–has its own internal conflicts, where Saudi Arabia and Qatar are especially concerned that the Assad regime might prevail and the influence of Shiite Iran be enhanced. It therefore appears that a mix of religious and political motives have led to their involvement with and support of the Syrian rebels.

Q: There are certain Western states who are opposed to the involvement of Iran in the peace talks to end the crisis in Syria. Why do these countries don’t accept the fact that Iran is an essential and integral part of solution for bringing to an end the two-year long unrest in Syria?

A: The United States may be attempting to replay the events in Afghanistan by providing weapons to the rebels, where Stinger missiles, especially, were instrumental in shooting down large numbers of its helicopters and planes and driving the Soviets out of Afghanistan, which is well portrayed in the film,“Charlie Wilson’s Role”, apart from omitting the crucial role of Osama bin Laden, who was “our man in Afghanistan”. The demonization of bin Laden and of al-Qaeda for the attacks of 9/11, which were carried out by the CIA, American neo-cons in the Pentagon and the Mossad, further complicates understanding what has been taking place in Syria. Al-Qaeda was a creation of the CIA.

For Western nations to oppose the participation of Iran in peace talks is completely absurd. Since important elements of the Syrian rebel force have openly allied themselves with al-Qaeda, current US foreign policy in attacking al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, but supporting it in Syria, is inconsistent and even bizarre. This case represents the kinds of complications that are compounded by one set of lies (about 9/11) becoming intertwined by another – in relation to Syria and Iran. The duplicity of the US media makes it very difficult, if not impossible, for the American public to understand the depths of duplicity of US involvement in the Middle East, which is predicated upon lies nested within lie

very funny but sadly--ALL TRUE:

Jay Leno on the scandals


"I was going to start off tonight with an Obama joke, but I don't want to
get audited by the IRS."

On NSA surveillance: "We wanted a president who listens to all Americans -
now we have one."

On a new IRS commissioner: "He's called 'acting commissioner' because he has
to act like the scandal doesn't involve the White House."

On closing the Guantanamo prison for terrorists: "If he really wants to
close it, turn it into a government-funded solar power company. The doors
will be shut in a month."

Concerning the Benghazi, Associated Press, and IRS scandals: "Remember in
the old days when President Obama's biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden?"

On Obama saying he didn't know about the IRS scandal: "He was too busy not
knowing anything about Benghazi to not know anything about the IRS."

"The White House has a new slogan about Benghazi: Hope and change the
subject."

"It's casual Friday, which means that at the White House, they're casually
going through everybody's phone calls and records."

"It is not looking good for President Obama. Today his teleprompter took the
fifth."

"Fox News has changed its slogan from 'Fair and Balanced' to 'See, I told
you so!'"

"These White House scandals are not going away anytime soon. People in Kenya
are now saying he's 100 percent American. That's how bad it's gotten."

On Obama's commencement address: "He told the young graduates their future
is bright unless, of course, they want jobs."

On a Chicago man who set a record for riding a Ferris wheel: "The only other
way to go around and around in a circle that many times is to read the
official report on Benghazi."

On White House claims of ignorance on the scandals: "They took 'Don't Ask,
Don't Tell' out of the Pentagon and moved it into the White House."

The Daly Show has tons of clips showing the hypocrisy and lies aired on FOX. You should Google some of the YouTube videos, its hilarious.
There's a friendly rivalry between Stuart and O'Reilly, and I've watched the Daily Show myself when he makes fun of O'Reilly. There's a satirical bias in those clips and they aren't always on target.

It would be easy for a conservative satirist to show the hypocrisy and lies in the main stream media and this administration even without bias. But that would be the news and not comedy.

Keep in mind you're watching a liberal comedy show. Only liberals think it's news. Conservatives have more sense. There's far too much at stake to waste time laughing and making fun of the liberal media who never take anything seriously.
