McCain’s back with more opinions...
I’m sure McPain and Gramnesty will discuss how disappointed they are the primaries won’t be on CNN/NBC. Pukeamatic.
McCain & Graham ... what a surprise. :o/
Egypt Live Thread
I’m sure Linda will have lots of opinions and ideas on Egypt.
She’s such a foreign policy whiz.
Im sure McPain and Gramnesty will discuss how disappointed they are the primaries wont be on CNN/NBC. Pukeamatic.
Like everything else with the Repubs, it’s all BS.
Sunday morning S&M. Don’t know how you guys stand it.
The MSM represents the Obama tyranny and al Qaeda.
SO WHO EXACTLY REPRESENTS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?
Sunday morning S&M. Dont know how you guys stand it.
Im sure Linda will have lots of opinions and ideas on Egypt.
Shes such a foreign policy whiz.
You could tell people were itching for a fight, Mr. Graham recalled in an interview. The prime minister was a disaster. He kept preaching to me: You cant negotiate with these people. Theyve got to get out of the streets and respect the rule of law. I said: Mr. Prime Minister, its pretty hard for you to lecture anyone on the rule of law. How many votes did you get? Oh, yeah, you didnt have an election.
General Sisi, Mr. Graham said, seemed a little bit intoxicated by power.
Thanks for thread A.B. ‘Bama supposed to be #1 again.
Egypt has O, McCain and Linda all figured out. Just hope the good guys (i.e. pro-modern civilization) win.
Amazing how these Sunday morning TV News shows remain passe and boring, week after week!!! The same old, deadbeat faces and words in most cases, that no one with half a brain listens to. And.....then the fools that produce them, wonder why their TV viewship is at historic lows and continue to drop!!! Fools and Idiots of the media....wake up.....the train of new ideas is leaving the station....and you ain’t on it!!! Obama is passe’....a major “Lame Duck” if you please!!! Shucks.....even the Egyptian military treats him like a moron, which of course, he is!!! The whole world is laughing at the USA...and you buffoons just simply continue to live in a bubble!!! Sad commentary of the media in the USA!!!
A complete projection of Graham’s own psyche. What a clown...lol.
The Egyptian people and their military could care less about anything Obama says or does!!! They are too busy trying to save their country, its economy, its freedoms, its opportunities from Mohammad Morsi and his radical killer Muslims in the Muslim Brotherhood!!! Of course, Obama adores Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood brethren!!! America...you are so screwed with an enemy sitting at the state helm!!! Tears for America.....like Rome you were once great....now Obama has destroyed your purpose, meaning and freedom....and.....you are mocked and laughed at across the entire world!!!
McNuts & Grahamnesty staying away from Foxnews and heading to more friendly confines. (Not that Foxnews is that much different with Chris Wallace)
Gen Sisi was educated in the US and his professor said he understands the difficulty of establishing democracy in Egypt and she said he “is not the dictator type.” Wow..he wrote his thesis on ‘democracy in Egypt” and now he gets the real life reality show. I will pray for this man, he already said he is rebuiling the Christian Churches once the stability is there.Pretty bold comment.
Israel and the Saudis also do not want the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obozo has screwed this ( as everyhting) up so badly and now he is a ‘waffle”.
Interesting times we live in.
Totally agree. The world is also aware that the USA casts a blind eye on atrocities committed against Christians and Jews. That is a major, major turn in US foreign policy.
All Bambi does is promote and protect fanatical Islam.
I hope SISI has good security because he has to have a huge Chicago thugocracy bullyseye on his back by now.
Thank you. I will copy that link to the live thread. Many great contributors there.
Morning AB, All.
Sidebars is missing, good thing I had a ping.
Weather here been bootiful for mid-August, life pretty good, going to Disney World on Labor Day.
As always....thank you AB for doing this thread, your prompt pings, your compilation of talking points, And thank you everybody else for being the thoughtful people you all are.
Liberal niece calls me up (well she’s not liberal but she lives with some old guy, liberal as all get out, nice guy but dumb as a box of rocks).
“Bob”, (boyfriend’s name) “caught a couple of boys trying to steal a golf cart. He’d been having trouble with kids taking joy rides so he finally caught a group of them.”
Bob works in golf course.
“And I was so proud of him cause when he showed me pics, the three boys were black. He hadn’t even mentioned that.”
I gave a quiet grunt of acknowledgement but pondered what on earth would have been wrong if he’d have mentioned they were black?
“There are so many, so very many prejudiced people, Aunt Pat...”
At which point I had to stop talking to the child. For once again I was going to hear about rampant prejudice in this country, which there is little....and hear this notion that mentioning someone’s race make you a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
On and on she went about the many really bad people in this country hating blacks....
....liberals....it wouldn’t be so bad if they go down by themselves but they take us down with their own dumb selves.
As for the golf carts, well what the hell, bunch a young kids went on a joy ride in a golf cart, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THEIR SKIN COLOR MAKE? ....to paraphrase Hillary.
Jeez....really dumb dumb man, serious.
I watch none of these shows, to preserve my health at 70 my wife bands me from watching them, she is poed when I yell at TV, off to church.
I agree with you about the Egyptian people. That awful Muslim Brotherhood is determined to destroy that country.
I’m not convinced America should get involved though we are sending money aren’t we?
I’m rooting for the street people. Throw out those loser radicals from your countries people of the mid-east!!!
As usual...typical RAT.
Blumenthal:’Democracy is in the eye of beholder’
Pretty much sums up the whole democrat attitude to the constitution too.
Oh for god’s sake..St Skittles mother is now on with Gregory talking about the “Trayvon Martin Founda$$$ion”...they are saying Stop and Frisk is racial...and “Trayvon was racially profiled.”
Ok, let the murders in the inner city begin then, if that’s what you want. Yeesh.
Of course NO talk about WHY there is more violence in the Inner city.
Ask her who's committing all this black-on-black crime?
Show her the FBI crime statistics and have her explain the low level of white-on-black crime.
Why does Obama consistently side with the more radical elements of Islam, even to the detriment of the US and its allies?
Pass the trash can.
I read somewhere that the goal of all these so-called “civil rights” activists is for us to stop bothering handsome young black youth, even though they steal and rob, and allow them to grow into “what they were meant to be”.
Whatever that is.
In other words, if they were “meant to be” criminals, BY ALL MEANS LEAVE THEM ALONE!
To take away their natural heritage is mean and racist, dontcha know.
Reading reports that Graham and McCain are coming out on Sunday shows guns blazing after SiSi as well. Seems the two have major butthurt after SiSi made fools of them...lol.
McCain is in the back pocket of the dems and the Muslim Brotherhood. There can be little room for doubt at this point.
Oh, they're RATs too. Their main lie is that they are Republicans.
All RATs always lie about everything.
MTP..this is Kelly’s audition for the Homeland Security job..
Some kind of glitch on FR today makes the pages load incompletely. I hope it is not my computer having the problem. I just wanted to comment that the panel on FNS was brain-numbing.
It's about to get beddy interesting since el Shater may soon spill the beans on the regime. Ignore the Corsi part of this since I know how popular he is here. Just concentrate on what Walid Shoebatt has to say he's a good guy with great intel.
Seems some of the terror boys are threatening the regime with spilling the beans if the don't let their buddies have a get out of jail free card.
I will be posting the transcript on the Egypt live thread, when available. I am most interested in his remarks on the MB.
John McCain: U.S. lost ‘credibility’ on Egypt
The United States has no credibility in the Middle East due to the Obama administration’s inaction in Egypt, Sen. John McCain said Sunday.
The administration previously threatened to cut off aid if there was a coup in Egypt, the Arizona Republican said, but has refused to honor that promise. We could be cutting off the aid, as well as cutting off economic assistance, tourism and exports, he said, but the administration is not sticking to our values..
We should not get involved, period!!! Obama, in his destructive manner has caused and abetted mass murder in Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, etc. by his beloved Muslim Brotherhood brethren that he adores so much. Can you imagine how Obama just stands silently by while Christians & Americans, etc. are slaughtered, their churches burned down, their nuns marched like female slaves, through the public streets of Egypt, by “Obama’s buddies, Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood”.
American Christians, all of them, like good little Obamabots, stand silent, with not a word spoken in defense of brother & sister Christians. Obama should stand down and let the Egyptian military take care of Morsi and Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood. The USA with Obama’s Muslim terrorist leadership has enough blood and murder of innocents dripping from it’s anti-American hands. We...in the USA should be mortally ashamed....we are not!!! Only the Lord almighty can help what this country has done by its own hand in electing an America hating, Muslim as its POTUS, IMHO!!!

The WSJ panelist misspoke and said ‘most people who are eligible don’t sign up for Medicaid’. Only 1 in 4 signs up for it.
[If she doesn’t even know which program is which, I have difficulty with the validity of any of her commentary. There is a MASSIVE difference between Medicare and Medicaid. She did not even realize that she misspoke.]
It is not your computer. It is a glitch in the FR software and it happens TOO frequently.
Under your account >> preferences, reset the two page lengths items to 20 and the pages will load.
After they get it fixed (usually takes a couple of hours to a whole day), you can reset the preference numbers to your desired number.
