    Pakistan said the United States drone strike that reportedly killed a Taliban leader violated its sovereignty, The Guardian reported . Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour was killed in an airstrike on Saturday in Pakistan, CNN confirmed , according to sources within al Qaeda and the Taliban. U.S. officials said the drone strike was authorized by President Obama. But Pakistan said Sunday the U.S. government didn't tell Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of its plans ahead of the strike. “This is a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty,” Sharif told reporters in London, according to The Guardian. The Guardian reported that the American government...

    Maronite Bishop Gregory Mansour of Brooklyn has told students at Belmont University about the need for all Christians to respond to persecution with “profound defiance”.Pointing out that this was markedly different from vengeful retaliation or submissive inaction, Bishop Mansour said: “Jesus was not a passive victim. Christians are not just asked to be nice people and doormats.”He told the Belmont students that they are called to stand in solidarity with the persecuted Christians in the Middle East, and to join forces with other Christians, Jews and Muslims of goodwill to raise a voice against “the worst injustice you can...
  • Egypt’s mounting ire targets U.S.

    CAIRO — Supporters and foes of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy filled streets here again on Sunday as an interim government moved to fill key posts. Anger appeared to grow against the United States, especially among anti-Morsy forces who accuse Washington of backing the deposed leader and the Muslim Brotherhood in their efforts to turn Egypt into an Islamic state. Transitional Egyptian President Adly Mansour, named by the Egyptian military to lead the country after it removed Morsy from office, announced several key appointments, all of whom were members of the military or supporters of a nation guided by the...

    Chief justice Adly Mansour takes oath hours after democratically elected Mohamed Morsi overthrown by military. Top judge Mansour has been sworn in as Egypt interim president, hours after Mohamed Morsi was overthrown in a military coup following huge protests against his one-year rule. Adly Mansour took the oath of interim president on Thursday, as his democratically elected predecessor, Mohamed Morsi, was held in an unspecified military barracks along with senior aides. Before the constitutional court, Mansour said: "I swear by God to uphold the Republican system and respect the constitution and law... and safeguard the people and protect the nation."...
  • The Obamas' Wahhabist Fundraising Empire: Barack's First Cousin spills the Beans (on Video)

    While Obama’s connection to his Muslim family in Kenya is an acceptable topic for discussion in the Arab world, it is viewed as a ‘great taboo’ in the United States. Why is that so? This ‘taboo’ should be considered unfair at best, purely prejudiced at worst. Is it fair that we censor such discussions just because Obama’s relatives are ‘Muslim’? The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) should condemn the media for keeping a tight lid on the subject. Isn’t it time to go beyond what is disclosed by President Obama in his Dreams from My Father or Wikipedia’s limited...

    A series of messages forwarded to The Daily Caller show a top aide to former Alaska Gov. and possible presidential candidate Sarah Palin mocking top political figures and even her boss’s own daughter, Bristol Palin. founder and CNN contributor Erick Erickson is “a total douchebag,” wrote Palin speechwriter and domestic policy adviser Rebecca Mansour in a May 22, 2010, message. “Greasy dumb ass with a talent for self-promotion. He threw himself in at the Gov’s SC rally. Self-promotion.” (Erickson said South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley invited him to the rally). Mitt Romney supporters are “wacky as hell,” Mansour wrote,...

    It was the summer of 2009 and the former Alaska governor was in Del Mar, Calif., working on her book "Going Rogue." Earlier that year, Mansour had co-founded a website that offered detailed defenses of Palin's record and acidic attacks on her critics. Palin was impressed.

    US officials have blamed Britain for an embarrassing fiasco in which an impostor met Afghan and Nato officials before it was discovered he was not the Taliban leader they thought he was, according to sources familiar with the incident. It was revealed this week that the man – understood to be a shopkeeper from the Pakistani city of Quetta – was masquerading as Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour, the second highest-ranking official in the Taliban. He attended three meetings in Kabul. The New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd reported today that people familiar with the con – as she described it...

    Jordan's powerful Muslim opposition on Wednesday urged the country's newly appointed prime minister to step down, calling him the wrong person to introduce democratic reforms and tackle deepening poverty and unemployment. Also, Jordan's King Abdullah II made a surprise visit to an impoverished northern village. It was his first such trip since the unrest broke out in neighboring Egypt, and appeared to be an attempt to defuse popular anger over the country's troubles and portray himself as a caring leader. On Tuesday, Abdullah named Marouf al-Bakhit prime minister, bowing to public pressure from protests inspired by those in Egypt against...

    Two years ago I inadvertently began my exploration of the authorship of Barack Obama’s 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father, with an inquiry into how Obama got into Harvard Law School in 1988. In the summer of 2008, I was tipped to a story that the media were scrupulously ignoring. It involved the venerable African American entrepreneur and politico, Percy Sutton. A Manhattan borough president for 12 years and a credible candidate for mayor of New York City in 1977, Sutton had appeared in late March 2008 on a local New York City show called " Inside City Hall." When...

    New evidence has emerged that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was closely associated as early as age 25 to a key adviser to a Saudi billionaire who had mentored the founding members of the Black Panthers. In a videotaped interview this year on New York’s all news cable channel NY1, a prominent African-American businessman and political figure made the curious disclosures about Obama. (See Video Clip Below) Percy Sutton, the former borough president of Manhattan, off-handedly revealed the unusual circumstances about his first encounter with the young Obama. “I was introduced to (Obama) by a friend who was raising money...

    There’s a lot of hysteria on the Internet. Unsubstantiated claims are tossed around like hot potatoes, and as a result it has become a heck of a lot easier to ruin someone’s career, or tarnish their image. Considering this, Sen. Barack Obama created a website — very wisely, I might add — solely focused on discrediting false accusations hurdled against him. I invite you to visit the site at, where Sen. Obama’s campaign, amongst other things, debunks the claims that the Democrat nominee is a Muslim, or that Mrs. Obama referred to white people as “whitey.” And for good measure,...

    Voter fraud has been a part of the DNC “get out the vote” strategy for years. ACORN has perfected the art, thanks in great part to Barack Obama’s personal training. But it has never existed on the massive scale that it exists today. How fitting that it is Obama himself who now stands to gain the most by the unethical tactics he trained ACORN “organizers” years ago. The bad news is that this massive effort to steal the 2008 election has a real chance of succeeding, as it has been operating under the protective cloak of the pro-Obama lamestream press...

    Suddenly, the presidential campaigns are addressing an issue that should have been at the forefront of this year’s election long ago. Call it “characters count.” We know people – especially public figures – by the company they keep. And we need to know much more about, to put it charitably, the characters that have figured prominently for years in Barack Obama’s life. Over the weekend, Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin brought the issue to the fore by observing caustically that the Democrats’ would-be commander-in-chief has “palled around with terrorists.” The Obama campaign immediately deployed talking points and a television...
  • Who Paid for Obama's College Education?

    10/06/2008 8:49:03 AM PDT · by Candybar · 31 replies · 9,546+ views
    Obama went to some very, very expensive colleges. Columbia, Harvard. His family had little, if any money. We are led to believe that his family paid for his high school education at the expensive Punahoe school in Hawaii. But, but, but, a father who was a furniture salesman and a mother who worked at a local bank didn't have that kind of money to send him to Columbia and Harvard, two of the most expensive colleges in America!!! The question is: Who paid Obama's costs at Columbia and Harvard??? Yes, who paid for tuition, books, room and board, and incidentals???...

    Subversives for Obama Friday, 26th September 2008 There are two American election campaigns currently running. The first, in the mainstream media, accepts Barack Obama at face value, no questions asked, while it viciously turns over Sarah Palin and her family whom it subjects to lies, smears and character assassination. The second, being conducted in the blogosphere and (with one or two notable exceptions such as the Wall Street Journal) not alluded to at all by the mainstream media, is the site of verbal warfare between Camp Obama and bloggers who are practising journalism as it used to be practised –...

    Who is Khalid al-Mansour? And more importantly, why was he promoting Barack Obama in the 1980’s and raising money for him, when Obama was in his twenties? I caught this story, first, over at Atlas Shrugs, where this odd thing jumped out at me: Townhall links to a video in which civil rights activist Percy Sutton claimed he was asked by a certain “Dr. Khalid al Mansour”, adviser to ‘one of the richest men in the world’ to write a letter of reccomendation on behalf of Barack Obama to help him gain acceptance to Harvard many years ago. Mansour was...
