Military To Obama – WE SUPPORT ROMNEY

The latest Military Times poll shows an overwhelming majority of military personnel favoring a Mitt Romney  victory against Barack Obama in 2012 with the two most important issues being those of character and the economy.  If Barack Obama as Commander in Chief is so lacking in support among our military, shouldn’t he also then lose support as president among America’s civilian population as well?

EXCERPT:

Military Times Poll: Romney bests Obama, 2-1

The professional core of the U.S. military overwhelmingly favors Mitt Romney over President Obama in the upcoming election — but not because of any particular military issues, according to a new poll of more than 3,100 active and reserve troops.

Respondents rated the economy and the candidates’ character as their most important considerations.

Almost 80 percent of respondents have a college degree — including 27 percent with a graduate degree and more than 11 percent with a post-graduate degree — while an additional 18.5 percent have some college under their belts.

And they are battle-hardened; almost 29 percent have spent more than two cumulative years deployed since 9/11, while a similar percentage has spent one to two cumulative years deployed.

    • I think that is not surprising at all – and what the proObama people know too – what I worry about is their usual attempts to keep their votes from being counted, etc.
      OT but encouraging – you guys remember that journalist, Lara Logan who was raped while reporting in Egypt? I thought she was another naive “liberal” like most of them but is she? or….was she? Just saw this after I heard it on Rush today – have not seen this story anywhere……..

      “Lara Logan, a correspondent for CBS’ “60 Minutes,” delivered a provocative speech to about 1,100 influentials from government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas.

      Eleven years later, “they” still hate us, now more than ever, Logan told the crowd. The Taliban and al-Qaida have not been vanquished, she added. They’re coming back.

      “I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is a major lie being propagated . . .” Logan declared in her native South African accent.

      The lie is that America’s military might has tamed the Taliban.

      “There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two years,” Logan said. It is driven in part by “Taliban apologists,” who claim “they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban,” she added sarcastically. “It’s such nonsense!”

      Logan stepped way out of the “objective,” journalistic role. The audience was riveted as she told of plowing through reams of documents, and interviewing John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan; Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and a Taliban commander trained by al-Qaida. The Taliban and al-Qaida are teaming up and recruiting new terrorists to do us deadly harm, she reports.

      She made a passionate case that our government is downplaying the strength of our enemies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as a rationale of getting us out of the longest war. We have been lulled into believing that the perils are in the past: “You’re not listening to what the people who are fighting you say about this fight. In your arrogance, you think you write the script.”

      Our enemies are writing the story, she suggests, and there’s no happy ending for us.

      As a journalist, I was queasy. Reporters should tell the story, not be the story. As an American, I was frightened.

      Logan even called for retribution for the recent terrorist killings of Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three other officials. The event is a harbinger of our vulnerability, she said. Logan hopes that America will “exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil. That its ambassadors will not be murdered, and that the United States will not stand by and do nothing about it.”

      In the “good old days,” reporters did not advocate, crusade or call for revenge.

      In these “new” days in a post-9/11 world, perhaps we need more reporters who are willing to break the rules.”

      http://www.suntimes.com/news/washington/15581902-452/reporter-lara-logan-brings-ominous-news-from-middle-east.html

      YES -MORE reporters willing to break the rules – to tell the T.R.U.T.H. !!!!!!!!!!!!

      • 57th State
      • I should hope someone that has been brutally gang-raped in Tahrir Square would minimally see the fruits of current American policy and how ill-conceived it actually is. What will it take for others in her own profession to be similarly enlightened?

        • AmericaTheBeautiful
        • Interesting interview. Probably one on Flynn’s friends.

          Hank joined with John Brennan and others to stand against the criticism coming from within against Tenet.

          I find Hank’s alliance with Brennan confusing particularly considering Brennan’s activities through The Analysis Corporation. I assume he put Lt. Quarles to rest after he had accesssed Obama’s State Department and passport files….and changed them. Obama’s BC and hidden roots are being managed by John. Brennan seems every bit as powerful as Jarret. Thats telling. He seems to enjoy the same malignant narcississist’s streak Obama does.

          I believe Brennan was turned in Saudi and is a Muslim first and foremost and extrapolate that to IslamoCommunist. Perhaps the line is not so direct. Brennan could not be approved to head the CIA by Congress… and is directing traffic from the WH. seems the Bush administration had something on Brennan. Clapper is so far out of the loop he doesn’t appear to read the daily news or receive a daily briefing of any sort. In fact Clapper, once respected, looks shell-shocked as though a kidnap victim periodically pulled from the hole…. I assume Napolitano is taking her orders from Brennan too.
          Brennan had to have been advising Obama and Jarrett to hold off the OBL moment until closer to the election. Jarret rearing and delaying suggests she was trying to get that info to her Iranian contacts.
          so Brennan’s ties to Crumpton give me pause about Crumpton. Wonder how close or adverse Brennan is to The Cohen Group?

          • VTX
          • Interesting take – and likely – that Brennan is an Islamist. He has the same waddle. I agree with your take that he’s pulling as many strings as Jarrett – maybe even some of hers. Hasan comes to mind, how they can’t come to grips with calling his actions what they are: an act of Islamic Terrorism.

            I think Hank is happy to be out of that hornet’s nest. I doubt he thinks Brennan is anything but an SOB with a huge ego – you nailed that with your profile. The evidence is there.

            Same with Clapper. I feel for the guy, and I totally agree that they only trot him out in order to beat him in front of the press.

            Term Limits….hmmm…Brennan is, as I said before, just a spooky version of Chas Freeman. Both are entirely hostile to Israel. Some might suspect Brennan of flying the drone over the Negev to alert Iran in the event that Israel got close to D-Day.

            • Publius
            • Whether or not Brennan converted to Islam is a matter for speculation.

              The Saudi m.o., however, is well known in intelligence and diplomatic circles. If you serve in Saudi long enough for the royals to gain a positive assessment of your usefulness, and especially if you show during your tour of duty there that you are willing to promote their interests back in Washington – they will pay you very well.

              Payment is not made directly, as a bribe in exchange for your services, while you are assigned inside Saudi, but comes in the form of a stipend or consulting contract after you leave. Many US Ambassadors to the kingdom, as well as senior foreign service officers, not to mention some intelligence personnel, have ultimately resigned or retired without a financial care in the world. If Saudis consider you helpful, you get a six-figure renewable consulting contract – not directly from the Saudi government, but from one of their myriad business, educational, or “charitable” organizations.

              All this is an open secret within the US diplomatic community, and leads to situations in which embassy officials have sometimes been known to advocate more strongly for the Saudi position in Washington than for the US position in Riyadh or Jiddah. By doing that, they figure they will be well-compensated in their future endeavors. I guess their consciences are clear because they don’t actually take the money while still working for the USG. Brennan may be the exception, although he may have retired and then gone back to work later as a counter-terrorism “expert.”

      • AmericaTheBeautiful
      • Landslide….Only if we can stop the destruction of the military vote that Obama is managing….and only if the incursion of the evil forces behind Socialist/Communist/Globalists of SCTYL/SOE into counting our vote are stopped…The raising of gas prices in California to effect the vote is confirmation no one is secure or confident in a Romney win. This month will tell. Be out there…volunteer…be on the ground…donate. There will be no do-overs. Note Chavez. It was not close…and he sealed his theft with tanks in the streets.

        Obama is a traitor….

        Lara Logan is a patriot. Bless her.

        There is not a difference of opinion of various factions of Americans shifting the divisions …It is the differences between Loyal Americans and Anti-American forces. Those who believe they’re fighting for their entitlements or union due are misguided and used.

    • Abby
    • My husband, a retired AF Col. who voted for Obama in 08 deeply regretted his choice with Obama’s handling of former allies in the Middle East. He saw a weak man with short term thinking who completely risked the entire area. Any hope to get it back is gone for generations. He, like WHI & WSI is distraught that we are now trapped in a nation that is unlikely to recover.

    • Jules
    • Barry does not want the military to defeat any foreign enemy with bullets nor domestic with ballots. The new Obamunnist way is to surrender, transform, “forward,” soldiers, to your death. That’s Barry’s way for the greater good (barf).

      Barry, you’re goin’ down (I mean politically, of course).

      I think it’s time Little Barry Foo-foo got some much needed rest :) , and unemployment compensation, no, disability, goodness knows he qualifies for that.

    • ThroughtheLookingGlass
    • We can HOPE for Romney by a landslide…and work to make it happen.

      Is there any wonder why Congress is delaying the investigation into Ambassador Stevens+3 deaths until after the election? Any other President would be all over Libya like white on rice for this, election or not. Barry is delaying the investigation because it leads straight to his WH…and everyone knows it. That is why he initially stated that the DOJ would look into it…so Eric the Redical could sweep everything under the rug and create a firewall of protection for Obummer.

      As for the death of UBL, I think Barry spiking that ball has led to much of the unrest/violence/protests in the Middle East. Yes, they are pissed at us for killing their successful leader. Barry wasn’t supposed to get Bin Laden. That’s why Valdemort kept saying no. She didn’t want Bin Laden caught because she and Barry were kissing ass in Pock-ee-stan for appeasemenet. They were overruled and UBL is dead. They had no choice but curry favor with the public by spiking that ball and continuing to sing that tired song “I Shot Bin Laden” (and he also shot down the seal teams) to remind us of the only good thing he has done…that he really didn’t do, but is taking credit for. As a result, the Taliban and Al Qaeda are even more pissed than before. If Barry is re-elected the Middle East will explode ON US. How does a bully pick a fight? He nags a little here and there, applying more heat and raising the stakes. Barry is all but opening the door and giving them the map to the destruction of the US. Some great foreign policy. He is being paid through campaign contributions to throw us under the foreign policy bus. They have exploited his ignorance and arrogance to destroy America as we knew it. And Barry being the fool tool is welcoming them with open arms.

      Where is their false flag and October surprise? Why did Barry stand there practically mute at the debate stammering a nonsense ‘vote for me’ summation? Under the influence of drugs? or making himself a target to deflect the REAL distraction?

      • VTX
      • Sorry, but they had every intention of getting UBL – close to the Republican Convention. It was delayed and delayed and delayed…but something or someone made it happen sooner than they wanted. Call it Providence and the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, if you will.

        As some have suggested lately, their “getting” UBL was supposed to be a capture-only mission; the trial was supposed to take away all the attention of a failing economy and limp jobs reports, and UBL was supposed to be their star to accomplish that. Previously, it was only clear that they’d planned to hold him (UBL) at the ready until the Convention. Keeping him alive was a major desire of Brennan/Jarrett/Obama.

    • AmericaTheBeautiful
    • VTX, as Hagmann writes that we are in the prelude to WWIII…and it sounds frighteningly sane, and all the pieces seem to fit…As Obama’s lies mount…and his FLEXABILTY permitted an aligning of our enemies…drawing back the curtain on Putin and his new alliances…while ours have been broken …This article can provide more than a few nights of lost sleep…What say you?

      A well-connected source just secreted me a copy of the script, and if it plays out as currently written, it’s guaranteed to be a horrible, horrible ending… for the lemmings.
      Lemmings… At the precipice of WWIII

      - Doug Hagmann Monday, October 8, 2012

      The 1958 Disney documentary ‘White Wilderness’ purported to show how furry little arctic rodents called Lemmings, lived and died in a natural cycle of life and death. The film convincingly told us how when their numbers exploded and the local food supply was in danger of being unable to support them, nature in her all wisdom would inexplicably cause the lemmings to migrate to cliffs and jump into the freezing arctic waters. Those that survived the fall didn’t turn back after being roused to their senses by the icy cold. Instead they pressed on, a tangled mass of fur moving away from their natural element into ever deeper waters and their inevitable death. The film was beautifully shot and edited which earned the producers an Academy Award as a documentary film.

      It was all very compelling, great eye candy, but it was a complete, total, and absolute fabrication. Sometime later the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation did a follow up documentary called ‘Cruel Camera.’ The evidence was presented showing how the entire screenplay was staged.

      The lemming actors were imported from Hudson Bay to Calgary, Alberta, and herded across the foreign tundra. Scene after gripping scene had been carefully staged to dazzle the viewers, until at last, perched atop a high precipice on the edge of the Arctic Sea, the poor creatures like “sheeple to the slaughter” were plopped onto a rapidly spinning turntable and flung from the heights into the tossing waves. The close ups, the drama, life and death in full color was beautifully narrated to con….vince us that it’s nature’s way, and we the viewers must accept it, natures wisdom, at work in the world around us… if you gentle viewers will believe it.

      We have been and are being conditioned to believe a lie, to calmly accept what is purported to be “the inevitable.”

      While the eyes of most Americans watched the political made for TV series ‘Presidential Debate 2012’, the trailer for the biggest James-Bondsonian type of screenplay ever produced, ‘Middle East, on the road to Armageddon’ just showed in a theatre near you. A well-connected source just secreted me a copy of the script, and if it plays out as currently written, it’s guaranteed to be a horrible, horrible ending… for the lemmings.

      This mega-budget action/adventure film has been in production for some time and is soon to be released, possibly, just in time for the holidays. The writers and directors have been tweaking and honing the script to fit some recent “on location” filming opportunities. This is such an important production, that most of the “big name” actors will do anything to be in it; it’s the stuff of legends.

      “United Globalista’s Studios” who’ve underwritten this production want to keep a tight rein on the script because they don’t want the twists of the plot and subplots leaked before the big premiere. Why? The studio Moguls in this case are pretty darn smart, they know how “everyone” just wants to be a star, so they are going to let “US,” the invited guests have a part in the final scenes which, surprise, surprise… they intend to “shoot” with a live audience! The studios are hoping that the invited participants remain calm, believing they will enjoy the satisfaction of a feel-good ending.

      Me? I see a turntable spinning in the distance.

      We are at the precipice of global conflict, WW III. The killing of Ambassador Stevens and other Americans in Libya was merely the prelude, like the opening scenes in a Bond film, but we haven’t yet grasped how it relates to the rest of the script. During the ‘Arab Spring’ we thought we were seeing trailers for several different films before the main attraction, but little did we know how seamlessly the various clips all tie together at the end. The show has already started.

      If the script proceeds as written, the entire geopolitical world and balance of power could, and most likely will, change with this next curtain call. No one will be left untouched by the coming events.

      So it is here that I pause and with a sense of urgency, suggest that we all move back a few rows and open our gaze to the bigger screen before us. My well placed source walked me there recently and showed me where to look for the hidden images in the big picture. It’s difficult at first, but once you know what you’re looking for, it suddenly it pops out and bam!.. it seems obvious! There is no way that one cannot “not see it!” At his request I cannot give him his proper and well-deserved attribution, but without his insight I might have completely missed my ah-ha moment and the instant, urgent and extreme importance of the events taking place before us right now.

      WW III will not ‘START’ with Iran (Not even ‘SORT’ of)
      Maintaining the screenplay metaphor, like Bond, we will transit the world before the climactic final scene on that high cliff; but for now, the prelude takes place in and around Syria, not Iran or even Israel.

      It is Syria and Russia VS the U.S. and NATO, with supporting actor roles going to the usual suspects; including but not limited to Vladimir Putin, Barrack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, and, of course, the late Christopher Stevens. One more thing: please re-read and understand the references contained in this sub-heading, which are critically important to one’s overall understanding of events.

      Ambassador Stevens and the Syrian “Red line”
      We citizens are befuddled by Mr. Obama’s insistence that members of his administration keep pushing an implausible and mercurial narrative about the events in Libya that resulted in the death of our fellow citizen heroes. The official non-sensible explanations have been easily refuted thus far, yet Presidente’ Obama and his Czars continue to push illogical narratives. Why? Is the truth that dangerous? Seems to me that “the only people who don’t want the ‘TRUTH’, are people with something to hide”. What is it that you have to ‘HIDE’, Mr. President?

      To better understand what happened in Libya, you must first understand the context in which it took place. Ambassador Stevens was probably at least as valuable as a U.S. intelligence asset/operative as he was a diplomat. He operated the Iran desk early in his career and eventually became one of our top “go to” experts on all things Iran. Mr. Stevens served in countries throughout the mid-east before eventually settling in Syria for several years. He was well known and respected in the region. He also lived in Washington D.C. for several years while serving as the Director of Multilateral Nuclear and Security Affairs. His little black book with the contact numbers for the good and bad actors and their agents had become pretty extensive; but… here’s where the plot thickens. It appears that Mr. Stevens might not have initially entered Libya to stop the flow of weapons, but to help funnel them under the direction of higher ups in the Obama regime. He was tasked with coordinating, overseeing and facilitating the movement of the rebel fighters from across North Africa through eastern Libya.

      The troops were armed with weapons from Gaddafi’s extensive hidden arsenals and spirited to staging areas in the Syrian refugee camps in Turkey. If this administration had needed to go to Congress over the last year and ask for money and troops to start a war with Russia, on Syrian soil do you think they would have gotten it? Not a chance, the electorate would never have put up with it, but, this administration’s handlers didn’t need to. They just got creative. Does Iran-Contra come to mind, anyone? All they have done thus far is ask for a few paltry millions for administrative costs to “support the Syrian Freedom Fighters.”

      But enough of the charade, let’s be clear here! At this exact moment, we, the American People, are already directly engaged in an all-out proxy war with Russia!This is not and/or will not remain an arm’s length cold war. This is already a hot war with tens of thousands of deaths in the last several months. This administration has taken sides and chosen its “winner,” sending money, arms, logistical and intelligence support to the Syrian Freedom fighters. You know these actors as you’ve seen them on the screen before. Check the credits, their real names are The Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. They recently debuted in the theatrical ‘Arab Spring.’ A local hit with recent appearances in Egypt, Tunisia, etc.

      False flags already “a-blowin’ in the wind”
      Ambassador Steven’s last official meeting is reported to have been with the Turkish consul general. It occurred approximately an hour-and-a-half before he was assassinated. It is interesting that this meeting occurred in Bengazi. Tripoli is the seat of power in Libya, and a meeting of this type could easily and more safely have been arranged there. However, Libya is almost two countries now, think East/West Germany half a century ago. The eastern half is more closely aligned with the radical Muslim Brotherhood powers now in control in Egypt. The border is really a near invisible line drawn by some western powers long ago and has little meaning to the locals. The Turkish Consul General had to meet there, not just with our Ambassador but also the various factions shipping arms to Syria through Turkey. He was looking for assurances that none of the chemical WMDs still left in Libya after Gaddafi’s demise had and/or would touch Turkish soil.

      For several months now the U.S. and NATO aligned nations have been ratcheting up the hyperbole of the threat of Assad’s Chemical weapons stockpile. President Obama and Secretary Clinton have threatened repeatedly that if WMDs from Syria’s arsenal are used or their security threatened (in other words, if it looked like the rebel good guy/bad guys might capture a chemical weapons site from Assad’s forces), it would result in an immediate need for extensive UN intervention. In other words, this administration is telling Mr. Assad “heads we win, tails you lose,” no matter what happens we will find a reason to bring the UN and Western troops into Syria. Might just as well accept the inevitable and give up!

      But, wait, there’s more! Unlike our other recent adventures in the region chasing after loner states, this one isn’t as alone as you first thought, it has some very mean looking “Big Brothers.” Russia is hosted by the new and improved President Putin along with an additional cast of favorites, China and Iran. Mr. Putin is making it very clear to the west that “we have drawn a ‘deep red line in the sand’ in Syria.”If the U.S. and NATO should choose to cross it, “WW III will start in Syria”.

      President Putin is convinced that the next act of this screenplay will contain some variation of a “false flag” event involving chemical weapons. He has not minced words warning Turkey, the little guy caught between a rock and a hard place, not to get involved. The Russian alliance thinks some of the munitions for this false, lying documentary, might have already been spirited from Libya. If I were Mr. Putin, and couldn’t overtly fly bombing missions over my enemies’ supply lines, communications or command centers, I’d probably try to do something covert that exposes my hidden enemies and brings them out into the open.

      It is interesting that the death of our Ambassador has brought the Libya/Syria connections into the light of day. Who’d that benefit, is this, ‘The Truth’ that scares the someone(s) with something to hide! Amazing, isn’t it, how accurately those mortars were placed by those rag—tag protesters. Is it possible that our arms-length conflict has now become a little more direct?

      Whatever the truth is, Turkey wants everybody off their soil. They want a buffer zone created across the border inside Syria, where the UN, the U.S. and NATO, can care for the refugee population they arecon…iving into this insane civil war.

      While the curtain is being forcibly closed on the unfortunate events involving Ambassador Stevens and his associates, the stage is nearly set for the next act. We’ve seen the first glimpse of that act in the last several days, when a mortar was launched into Turkey and Turkey responded in kind. All that is needed now is for a dutiful media to present one image, a video, or some other “proof” that Assad or someone else is using, or has their hands on, unconventional weapons. This will provide the necessary pretext for the U.S. and NATO, to intervene and ramp up the war against Assad. The UN will assist, and the red line will then have been crossed.

      Don’t you hate it when your patriotic energy is twisted in a Jujutsu style move against you? Your family? Your country?

      It is important to understand that Russia has upwards of 100,000 troops and “advisors” on the ground in Syria and a significant contingent of their navy is parked in the Mediterranean front yard. Consider that against the historical backdrop of Vietnam. It’s too long a conversation for now, but we need to have it soon. Current events have put Russia’s back against the wall, and they intend to come out fighting. Consider what Mr. Obama has done, at the behest of his Sunni Muslim handlers, facilitating “change” in the complexion of North Africa and all of the Middle East. Now visualize what the geopolitical landscape will look like should President Obama’s handlers continue to push their Pan-Arab, United States of Muslim’s agenda. We can’t fight what we refuse to see, or understand what we accept even exists.

      Though the Lemming lie was exposed long ago, the tale was so well told, that even today, the vast majority of our fellow citizens still believe it. The voice and words are still ringing in my ears: “remain seated, we will be on the ground shortly.” The sounds and narration lull us to acquiescence. The camera’s shots are well planned and the lighting and focus precise, to date we’ve only seen directly and indirectly the subtleties the directors and editors wanted us to see.

      I say “STOP!” the turntables, somebody turn on the lights in here.

      Let’s refuse to be herded into this latest lying, fabricated documentary; we actors have been sold a bill of goods concerning who’s behind this film and how it plays out! I don’t want anyone doing voiceovers when they edit it later, making it look like I agreed with all this crap! Let’s start moving to the exits and hope there are no hidden shooters or bomb throwers in the crowd! There is still a little time. I, for one, refuse to believe that we have no choice, but to dutifully, willingly allow ourselves to be plopped on that turntable for their horrific next scene.

      May God help us all with light and wisdom for what’s ahead.

      • The precipitious events that led to WWI are listed below from a common source. I have included an all-too-brief notation of the current parallels – they are extensive in their whole.

        My personal feeling is that the quietest, most inoffensive regime in the neighborhood will be used as kindling for the big bonfire: Jordan. Little, modern Jordan, willing to work with everybody, including Israel – that will be where the real fireworks begin, perhaps with the murder of a Royal by a Palestinian or Syrian.

        I’d hate to be right and I’d love to be wrong, but theories are all over the place, many having elements of truth without the complete picture. Pete Santilli, for example: he’s begging for protection from…the Russians? That doesn’t jibe very well with your author’s version of events. Nobody’s opinion, including my own observations, have a lock on this spiralling situation.

        Your author is right about Turkey: they lost a lot of territory when Arabs and Europe danced – they backed the Germans and ended up losing to the Arabs, who lost to European treaties and arrangements. The area has always been a hotbed of entanglements.

        My opinion is that the material below shows the likelihood of a major war starting in the region, because the elements that began WWI are all there, and in some cases may be more grave than in the past. Note the point: “intricate system of alliance.” In the past, even in the last decade, most Arab countries were willing to work with Israel in private, even when they wouldn’t dare to engage them publicly. Even in T.E. Lawrence’s time, there was a general appreciation and acknowledgement of what the Zionists (Israel was not yet created) would do for the region, in commerce and agriculture and science. Now? There seems to be a mad rush to destroy Israel – mostly fomented by madmen pushing dangerous ambitions.

        Here are the lists of the precipitators of the war (with my small notations included)

        “Some of the most important long term or structural causes are:

        - “The growth of nationalism across Europe” (subsitute Middle East)
        - “Unresolved territorial disputes” (Iraq, Iran, Turkey, the Kurds, Israel, Egypt, Syria…)
        - “Intricate system of alliances” (Iran and Turkey, but now Turkey and Syria pulling apart and shelling one another..the list is too long to even begin)
        - “The perceived breakdown of the balance of power in Europe” (Arab Spring, Libya, Egypt)
        - “Misperceptions of intent – e.g., the German belief that the United Kingdom would remain neutral[11][12]” (Obama leads the way in this: the coming Iranian war with Israel, and Iran’s belief that the US will remain neutral because of assurances by Obama etc)
        - “Convoluted and fragmented governance” (Arab Spring, again, and the loss of key leaders in the region who knew their way around)
        - “Delays and misunderstandings in diplomatic communications” (no need for comment)
        - “Arms races of the previous decades” (Russia, China, US, Syria, Israel, Iran, Turkey, Egypt…)
        - “Previous military planning[13]” (in this case, recent wars and the abandonment of practice and theory, along with presently confused directives)
        - “Imperial and colonial rivalry for wealth, power and prestige” (oil and Islamism)
        - “Economic and military rivalry in industry and trade – e.g., Pig War (Serbia) and Europe” (Russia, China, Iran, bankrupt US, bankrupt Europe)

        A tinderbox, waiting for a spark.
        We are not lemmings; I think most Americans are expecting something bad to happen, but we’re mostly relegated to watching – so far. The current President is setting the stage for it to land right on top of us – and he welcomes the day. Our duty? Vote him and his miserable monsters out of office. That is our duty. We may still emerge without a land war on our own continent.

        “October Turkey’s Yurt newspaper reports that the mortar used to attack the Turkish town of Akcakale is of NATO design.

        According to the newspaper’s Editor-in-Chief, Merdan Yanardag, the mortars were sent to the CIA-backed Free Syria Army. Yanardag cites reliable sources, Russia Today reports.

        “Turkey is a longtime member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and they’re going to act in conjunction with other NATO powers, so it’s unsurprising that this has happened,” editor of the Pan-African news wire, Abayomi Azikiwe, told RT.

        The establishment media in the United States has not carried the story and continues to blame Syria for the incident.

        The New York Times, however, reported last week that it was not certain who was responsible for the shell landing inside on Turkey’s side of the border.

        “It was unknown whether the mortar shells were fired by Syrian government forces or rebels fighting to topple the government of President Bashar al-Assad. The Turkish response seemed to assume that the Syrian government was responsible,” the newspaper reported on October 3.”

        “Curious U.S. and French Military Deployments

        September 28, 2012 | 2008 GMT

        Summary

        Stratfor has received multiple reports of U.S. and French military movements that we would like to highlight to our readers. These movements could have multiple explanations and might not be linked. But given the numerous ongoing crises specifically centered in North Africa and the Middle East, we consider these developments to be worth following.

        Analysis

        According to a worldwide network of aircraft spotters and trackers, at least a dozen MC-130H, HC-130N, HC-130P and AC-130U military transport planes and gunships crossed the Atlantic Ocean on Sept. 13 heading eastbound. These aircraft are typically used for a variety of special tasks, including in close cooperation with special operations forces. The last reported stop for the aircraft was Souda Bay, Crete. It is unclear whether the aircraft have left Crete, but we are working on tracking them down.

        A week and a half later, on Sept. 24, the same network of aircraft spotters noted 12 U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet fighter jets arriving in two waves at Moron air base in Spain. It is not known where the squadron is heading, though it could be en route to Afghanistan to reinforce elements there. The Harrier squadron that suffered heavy losses in the Sept. 14 attack on Camp Bastion has already been replaced by another Harrier unit, so it is unlikely that the squadron’s deployment is directly linked to that event. It is also possible that the F/A-18s are heading to the Gulf Cooperation Council region. A number of air superiority squadrons, including an F-22 Raptor squadron, have already deployed to the region. If that is the case, the squadron is intended simply as reinforcements or replacements for assets currently deployed there.

        Also on Sept. 24, The New York Times published an article stating that Iraq and the United States were negotiating an agreement that could result in the return of small units of U.S. soldiers to Iraq on training missions. At the request of the Iraqi government, according to U.S. Gen. Robert Caslen, a unit of Army special operations soldiers was recently deployed to Iraq to advise on counterterrorism and to help with intelligence. It is possible that at least some of the MC-130 aircraft previously mentioned were delivering these special operations troops to Iraq.

        Another report on Sept. 24, this one by the Le Figaro French-language newspaper, said some 100 French special operations troops had been deployed in the sub-Saharan region to counteract militants in northern Mali. Le Figaro also reported that maritime patrol aircraft that can be used to collect intelligence will be deployed to the region and that commandos of the French navy will reinforce the French special operations troops.

        Finally, Italian journalist Guido Olimpio reported in September that U.S. unmanned aerial vehicles are currently tracking militants in Cyrenaica, the historical name for eastern Libya. He also said “reliable sources” had confirmed that U.S. special operations forces were planning to carry out intelligence operations that could be in preparation for surgical strikes in North Africa, including in Libya and in Mali.

        All these deployments could be previously scheduled movements for training or part of ongoing operations. They also do not necessarily mean any one mission is imminent. The United States and France could simply be positioning military assets in a region that is rife with conflict and that may eventually require rapid military intervention or action.

        Whatever the intent, these deployments, taken together, are too compelling to ignore. Given the fluid conflicts in North Africa, Syria and Afghanistan, as well as the current tensions with Iran, these movements and reports are important to highlight to our readers.”

    • THE LIZARD KING HAS ARRIVED!!!!!

      Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from the new e-book “The Lizard King: The Shocking Inside Account of Obama’s True Intergalactic Ambitions By An Anonymous White House Staffer,” edited and introduced by Daily Caller writers Jamie Weinstein and Will Rahn. Buy it here now. And come back the rest of the week for more excerpts.

      Foreword

      In the pages ahead you will find an unsolicited manuscript we received in the mail at the offices of the Daily Caller. The envelope indicated it had been mailed from Thailand. When we opened it, we found a leather-bound book with a note attached. The note was from a man who claimed to be a former Obama administration official who left Team Obama during its first year in office. The note asked us to publish the contents of the book so the world would know the truth about the president. We do so in the pages ahead, which have only been moderately edited to excise the long, graphic, and detailed sex scenes, which to our surprise were the least plausible aspects of the author’s manuscript.

      We did our best to verify as much as we could. What we know is that the author was indeed a high-ranking member of the Obama administration who left suddenly under suspicious circumstances. As for the rest, it’s largely unverifiable unless others in the administration talk, which so far they haven’t. We leave it up to you to decide whether you are reading fact or fiction.

      Sincerely,
      Will Rahn and Jamie Weinstein

      …..

      Chapter 1: My Name is What?

      I was a senior official working in President Obama’s administration during its first ten months and am a die-hard liberal. While working at the White House, I was with the president often, if not constantly.

      This is not idle talk. I saw the president almost every day, and I often spent much of the day with his senior staff. We did everything but sleep together—and at the beginning of the administration I would have been open to that. I said I was a liberal, right?

      In a nutshell, few have seen how this administration operates the way I have. I know its inner secrets. I know the president’s idiosyncrasies. I know it all.

      But I won’t be voting for the president this fall—and you shouldn’t, either.

      In order to understand where I am, you have to understand where I’ve been. When I say I am a liberal, I mean it. I’m a liberal’s liberal. I connect with the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. I like arugula. I feel comfortable at gay weddings. I used to drive a Prius. I even think Chris Hayes is smart and incisive. So I’m not someone who naturally finds himself participating in a project that will benefit the Republican Party.

      At the University of Chicago, I was your typical privileged college progressive. I joined all the progressive campus groups: Kyoto Now!, College Democrats, Black Students United, Hermaphrodites are People Too, Black Hermaphrodites United, Straight Friends of Lesbians and Gays (SFLG), which later be came Straight Friends of Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals (SFLGB), which later became Straight Friends of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgenders (SFLGBT), which finally (I think) transformed into Straight Friends of Lesbians, Bays, Bisexuals, Transgenders and Questioning (SFLGBTQ).

      But beyond my campus activism, I actively involved myself in the campaigns of local Democratic politicians. That’s how I first encountered David Axelrod.

      While I was in college in 2002, there was a contentious Democratic primary for a seat on the Chicago City Council. Axelrod didn’t usually work on such low-level races, but his candidate was a young hotshot Hispanic star who he had high hopes could one day become mayor of Chicago. I worked on the campaign of the incumbent.

      I soon came to Axelrod’s attention when I ended his candidate’s prospects. Working on the campaign, I quickly discovered that I had a talent for the dark side of politics, the muckraking opposition research that can not only destroy a candidate, but potentially destroy a man.

      And so I destroyed Axelrod’s shining star. In order to do so, I went to the streets. I talked my way into several gangs in Chicago’s Lower West Side and ultimately discovered that Axelrod’s candidate had for a short time been part of one particularly infamous drug gang in the city.

      It was actually a sad story. At fourteen, Axelrod’s candidate’s father abandoned the family. The young future candidate took it upon himself to find a way to support his mother and siblings. He thought he could do it by joining a gang intimately tied to an infamous and brutal Mexican drug cartel. He even spent some time as a drug mule, ferreting drugs in his anus from Mexico into the United States. As soon as he could, he left that dark world and turned his sights on making things better for people in Chicago, poor people like himself. He had talent. He rose like a rocket—full scholarship to Loyola University, then amazingly enough to Harvard, where he earned a law degree. He thought he could escape his past. He had escaped it. But then I uncovered his little secret. His political career was over.

      Axelrod wasn’t mad. He was impressed. He wanted to get me on his team. He took me under his wing. And when a young Illinois senator emerged victorious out of a packed Democratic primary to take on a potentially strong Republican challenger for U.S. Senate in 2004, I was tasked with making the race easier on him.

      And so I did. I discovered that the Republican candidate, Jack Ryan, and his wife had a history of attending swingers’ clubs. It wasn’t illegal. But it so embarrassed Ryan that he dropped out of the race—and left it wide open for a then unknown Barack Obama to become the next U.S. senator. The Republican replacement for Ryan, Alan Keyes, was a roadblock to Obama’s chances in the same way a pencil is a suitable defender against Kobe Bryant on the basketball court or the French army was an adequate buffer to German advances during World War II.

      When Obama decided to run for president, Axelrod brought me along. When Hillary Clinton dropped out of the presidential primary in June 2008, the media reported it was because she knew she couldn’t win the nomination. But that’s bogus. Bill had already secured the super delegates necessary for her to win if she took the race to the convention. She dropped out because of what I found on her. It turns out that Chelsea is not her and Bill’s daughter at all—but the product of a night of passion between Hillary and the late PLO chairman Yasser Arafat during a trip Hillary took to Beirut in 1979, shortly after Bill became governor of Arkansas.

      My loyalty to Team Obama and mastery of the dark art of political chicanery made me a natural choice for a White House role after Obama won the presidency. They wanted me on their side. I was appointed a special assistant to the president, though I mainly worked on special projects behind the scenes, as you shall see.

      My long connection to Team Obama makes this book especially difficult because it constitutes a grand act of disloyalty. However, I cannot remain silent knowing what I know, seeing what I’ve seen.

      • VTX
      • Almost had me until Arafat – the late pederast: not credible with Hillary, (if you believe Dick Morris’ comments during Bluedressgate.)

        Might have believed M. Sarkozy and Ghadaffi, a swap for some French nurses who were being hostage to people accusing them of spreading AIDS, but that would be gossip, too.

        Arafat? Nope. Chelsea looks too much like Bill. If Arafat was her father, she’d look like Helen Thomas.

        • AmericaTheBeautiful
        • It certainly puts Clinton’s Monica dipped cigar, be have to Arafat in context…

          These grotesque folks are capable of the most base defiling behavior …I put nothing beyond Hillary.

          Helen Thomas…perhaps.
          But the brows and the lips on poor Chelsey and so too on Arafat tell a different story.
          Hillary was appointed by Carter to head the Legal Services Corporation in ’78 …and did meet with Arafat and Jesse Jackson…just sayin’….

    • AmericaTheBeautiful
    • Holy Shit!

      From the book….Valerie Jarrett was Weather Undergriund with Bernadine Dohrn…aliases Jane Evans in on terrorism making bombs…explains th U Mich connection..to Ayers and Dohrne…probably Breitbarts death
      , in Hanoi alias Sally Boyle

      Chelsea real parentage used to take down Hillary

      Don’t know who anonymous author is..Wonder if its the dead Alex Okrent

      • Yes, I noticed that. When it first came up, I found the Malkin debunking piece and posted it – then saw others saying it was real. In this crazy, deceitful world, I now have doubts. I pray very hard that this and all other fraud that is planned will be thwarted somehow and we also need a humongous turnout in voting.
