The Buchenwald Concentration Camp Memorial is actually around 130 miles west of Dresden. If reporters can't get something as easy as that correct, how can we trust them on the important things?

What's next, a mosque at the White House? Has he even visited Ground Zero? By far the most unamerican president elected.

Obama's Muslim heritage will give him substantial credibility with the Arab audiences, especially since he has never disavowed his Muslim roots and he has current day Muslim blood relatives. This step will surely protect America from future attacks. And as an added bonus, think of the great photos of Air Force One over the Sphinx and the Pyramids.

Not paranoia but, I am sad after some thing like this.

Any new president’s cabinet is something like a field of horses coming out of the gate. Some will not make it to the finish line. If the race is a steeplechase, some will fall at the first fence. To anyone running a book on Barack Obama’s cabinet, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano must look like a good prospect for early elimination. In mid-April she identified the two main threats to our security: Canada, and “right-wing extremist groups”(with returning military personnel a particular hazard). A few days later she told a TV interviewer that “to the extent that terrorists have come into our country or suspected or known terrorists have entered our country across a border, it’s been across the Canadian border.” The interviewer asked her whether she was talking about the 9/11 terrorists (who did not enter from Canada).“Not just those, but others as well,” said Janet. Let’s just hope that she will be led quietly from the field before Canada declares war.

Why call people racist? And as far as being stupid read on.

Joe Biden has calmed the American public during the flu crisis by saying,“I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now.... In a confined aircraft, when one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft.... I would not be ... suggesting they ride the subway.” Administration spokesmen quickly backtracked, but they needn’t have bothered, as the nation has already learned not to pay Biden any mind. Here is yet another sharp break with the Bush administration — a vice president so clownishly inept that portraying him as an evil genius would be like making Richard III out of Elmer Fudd.

And what about being two face:

It seems military commissions might not be so bad after all. In one of its recent Friday-night inconvenient-news dumps, the Obama administration let slip that trials by commission — the Bush military-justice model for war crimes that was vigorously attacked by Candidate Obama and his supporters, such as now–Attorney General Eric Holder — are back in play. In January, the administration ordered a four-month adjournment so it could study the commission proceedings now pending against 21 of the most notorious terrorists being held at Guantanamo Bay (including the 9/11 plotters and the bombers of the USS Cole). Though Obama and Holder continue to attack the Bush counterterrorism measures as a departure from the rule of law, it has evidently dawned on them that many dangerous terrorists cannot be tried under the rigors of their preferred civilian protocols. The administration is releasing many terrorist detainees, and intends to release several into the United States, but the president obviously understands that the public will not tolerate a Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in its midst. So commissions are back on the menu. This rule-of-law business turns out to be harder than it looks.

And here is the two faces of the MSM:

ABC News revealed the identities of two CIA contractors — covert agents — who allegedly oversaw the harsh interrogations of terrorist detainees. The disclosure served no public purpose, but exposed the contractors and their families to the vengeance of jihadists and the antics of anti-war extremists. The media and Democrats demanded a scorched-earth investigation to smoke out Bush officials who leaked the CIA affiliation of Valerie Plame Wilson — at least until it emerged that the leaker was Richard Armitage, one of the Left’s favorite Republicans. Mrs. Wilson was not a consequential intelligence operative (her employment by the CIA was known to many), but she and her husband were against the war in Iraq, so she was transformed into a victim of felonious treachery. Will anyone demand an investigation to prosecute the officials who leaked the identities of secret operatives trying to protect Americans from terror attacks?

Why more and more people do not trust the MSM (left-wingers) anymore:

Who is Carrie Prejean?“A dumb bitch” with “half a brain,” says gay gossip columnist Perez Hilton.“An ignorant disgrace” who “makes me sick to my stomach,” says E! News anchor Giuliana Rancic. Keith Olbermann and Michael Musto, another gay gossip columnist, meanwhile discuss her breast implants on MSNBC. Carrie Prejean earned this obloquy by telling Hilton, a judge of the Miss USA pageant who had asked her what she, as Miss California, thought of gay marriage, that “marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.” If you do not embrace same-sex marriage, you will be dragged through the mud. This is the operational position of the same-sex-marriage movement, and of its well-wishers in the media. If this is how they behave when the issue is still up for public discussion, think how they will conduct themselves when they hold the whip of the law.

And the party of hate marchs on with the help of the MSM:

Gov. Sarah Palin’s youngest child, Trig, has Down Syndrome. In the fever swamps of the Left, it is bruited about that Trig is not Palin’s child at all — but the offspring of her eldest daughter, Bristol. Some have also claimed that Trig is the product of Todd Palin, the governor’s husband, and Bristol — in other words, that he is the product of incestuous rape. Bristol recently had a baby, and the websites of both Vanity Fair and MSNBC referred to that infant as “Sarah Palin’s first acknowledged grandchild.” The network is as partisan as Colonel McCormick, and twice as nasty.

Cheney...is that you? Didn't your boy Scooter take the fall for that "little indiscretion!" The fan is starting to turn a little faster as more crap hits it. There will be a whole lot of ex-Cheney boys that go down for their involvement in touture.
But hey...What does all of this have to do with Obama going to Egypt???

Hope someone reminds Obama to ask the Egyptions about the news wires in Egypt on April 30, in regard to the culling of all the pigs in Egypt. The article by John Kass, titled "Flu by any other name wouldn't be as tasy", stated that the news wires in Egypt said that the culling of all the pigs was OK because the pigs were owned by "...Chistians, who are just a bunch of trash collectors and recyclers". While Obama is in Egypt, I hope he can ask the muslim politicians about the belief that Christians are "...just a bunch of garbage collectors and recyclers". An insult like that should be addressed by our president, while he visits Egypt. maybe he should cancel his visit, in protest, to an insult like that.
