White House silent as Egypt’s president grabs power, moves toward Shariah law
Daily Caller ^ | 11/26/12 | Neil Munro

Posted on 11/25/2012 10:45:06 PM PST by Nachum

White House officials remained silent during the extended Thanksgiving weekend, as Egypt’s pro-democracy groups called on President Barack Obama to condemn Thursday’s power grab by their country’s Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi.

Morsi decreed Nov. 22 that his pronouncements and edicts were beyond the reach of judicial review. The announcement was met by resistance from the nation’s top judges, who said they would fight Morsi’s unusual self-elevation to near-dictator status.

“I am waiting to see, I hope soon, a very strong statement of condemnation by the U.S., by Europe and by everybody who really cares about human dignity,” declared Mohamed ElBaradei, who is one of Egypt’s more visible non-Islamist politicians.

About the Thanksgiving Day decrees by Mohammed Morsi, can someone post the parts where he’s power grabbing?

I’m just curious.

Obama is a Muslim Communist who approves of what the Egyptian Muslim president is doing and Obama will do it also.

The only difference is that the media will not report it when Obama assumes total power. If the media doesn't report it then it didn't happen

1. Benghazi didn't happen
2. Fast and furious didn't happen
3. solyndra didn't happen
4. Obama passing the Dream act with an executive order didn't happen
5. Obama signing the ACTA treaty didn't happen
6. Economy in recession didn't happen
7.
.....

1000...

You can bet your ass that our leaders are jealous, and if only they could seize
that kind of unlimited power the USA would be a utopia. Hitler thought the same way.
The good over there is the power, which is why Obama is ignoring the bad. Referred to as necessary.

Hillary had a hand in Morsi proclaiming himself an Ayatollah. While in Gaza, she probably explained to him how America just gave the nod to their own Dictator so “why not you do it”? Way too many coincidences with this administration for them to be coincidences. 0bamatollah’s promotion of Sharia Law should land in him prison, but instead will land us all evaporated in a nuclear mist.

In Alexandria, an angry crowd stormed the offices of the Muslim Brotherhood from which President Morsi draws his support. They ransacked the building and then set it on fire.

Racist black professor arrested for disorderly conduct. Obama jumps in with both feet defending the offender and browbeating the cop. Iran stages bloody pro-democracy riots and begs for US support, Obama is absolutely silent. Trayvon Martin is shot while obviously up to no good, Obama jumps to his defense within hours of it hitting the newswires. Egyptian president declares himself a de-facto dictator, Obama is silent as a church mouse. There are numerous other instances of this odd behavior, but it’s getting a bit weird how we seem to be the only ones connecting the dots.

Obama's Soviet Mistake

19.11.2012
 

By Xavier Lerma

Obama's Soviet Mistake. 48555.jpeg

Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.

After Obama was elected in his first term as president the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave insightful and helpful advice to help the world economy and saying the world should avoid the Soviet mistake.

Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.

Putin said regarding the military,

"...instead of solving the problem, militarization pushes it to a deeper level. It draws away from the economy immense financial and material resources, which could have been used much more efficiently elsewhere."

Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis . O'bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like "fast and furious" and there is still no sign of ending it.  He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia.  Obama's fools and Stalin's fools share the same drink of illusion.

Reading Putin's speech without knowing the author, one would think it was written by Reagan or another conservative in America. The speech promotes smaller government and less taxes. It comes as no surprise to those who know Putin as a conservative. Vladimir Putin went on to say:

"...we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.

 The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.

There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.

Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt - are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.

During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself."

President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama. They read history in America don't they? Alas, the schools in the U.S. were conquered by the Communists long ago and history was revised thus paving the way for their Communist presidents. Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities. All the while promoting his agenda.

"We must seek support in the moral values that have ensured the progress of our civilization. Honesty and hard work, responsibility and faith in our strength are bound to bring us success."- Vladimir Putin

The red, white and blue still flies happily but only in Russia. Russia still has St George defeating the Dragon with the symbol of the cross on its' flag. The ACLU and other atheist groups in America would never allow the US flag with such religious symbols. Lawsuits a plenty against religious freedom and expression in the land of the free. Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law.   

Let's give American voters the benefit of the doubt and say it was all voter fraud and not ignorance or stupidity in electing a man who does not even know what to do and refuses help from Russia when there was an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Instead we'll say it's true that the Communists usage of electronic voting was just a plan to manipulate the vote. Soros and his ownership of the company that counts the US votes in Spain helped put their puppet in power in the White House. According to the Huffington Post, residents in all 50 states have filed petitions to secede from the Unites States. We'll say that these Americans are hostages to the Communists in power. How long will their government reign tyranny upon them?

Russia lost its' civil war with the Reds and millions suffered torture and death for almost 75 years under the tyranny of the United Soviet Socialist Republic. Russians survived with a new and stronger faith in God and ever growing Christian Church. The question is how long will the once "Land of the Free" remain the United Socialist States of America?  Their suffering has only begun. Bye bye Miss American Pie!  You know the song you hippies. Sing it! Don't you remember? The 1971 hit song by American song writer Don McLean:

"And, as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage.

No angel born in Hell could break that Satan's spell

And, as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite, I saw...

Satan laughing with delight the day the music died

He was singing, bye bye Miss American Pie

Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry

Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing...

This'll be the day that I die

This'll be the day that I die

So, the question remains:

How long will America suffer and to what depths?

Obama is screaming his head off in silence.

All Democrats despise foreign policy and our military. All they care about is domestic policy meaning buying votes via wealth redistribution. Egypt, Israel, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan just get in the way of spending mo' money on reparations and wealth redistribution. Are one big hassle to them. Foreign policy does not compute in their greedy simplistic minds. They are know nothings.

Why are we saying what kind of law Egypt should have? Let them have whatever law they like. Is Egypt telling us what kind of law to have?

We need to not send them any money and not interfere in their nation.

Silence does not mean acceptance to the electorate; the electorate on their decision Nov 6th essentially validated just how brainwashed and ignorant they are. So, 0bama not saying anything means nothing to 47% of our citizenry. The other 47%, our side, unless it makes a sounds that the MSM hears and reports, will say nothing. They won’t report it as connected to 0bama’s orchestrations and purposeful meddling. What’s Boehner doing and saying? Ah, just as I thought, Nothing. Pravda controls the media.

Egypt is important to us in the region and was about as much of an ally as a Middle Eastern state could be, even though it was already moving a little more Islamist. But the generals and the judiciary were still having some success in preventing the Islamists from taking over entirely. Then came Obama, who supported the removal of (our ally) Murbarak and the secular forces as part of Obama’s pro-sharia “Arab Spring” campaign.

So now the Egyptian people, seeing the Islamic noose tightening around them, are making one last attempt to prevent Egypt from sinking into becoming a complete pre-modern Islamist hell-hole like all the other states there.

So yes, this is important to us - and to Israel. But the sad thing is that a lot of this is our fault anyway, since Obama’s demented policies have put Islamists into power everywhere, even in the formerly most Westernized, modernized states in the ME.
