HDR 161: So Long, Egypt!
ALOHA, ALL! You heard pundits on TV say it. You heard politicians say it (all lefties, of course.) You heard people around the world downgrade the threat of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. After all, the people there toppled Mubarek because they want democracy. They want freedom from tyranny. They want to be our friends. Even our Dear Leader said in his hyped up Super Bowl interview with Bill O’Reilly that “The Muslim Brotherhood is one faction in Egypt. They don’t have majority support in Egypt, but they are well organized and there are strains of their ideology that are against the U.S., there’s no doubt about it,” Obama said. “But here’s the thing that we have to understand, there are a whole bunch of secular folks in Egypt, there are a whole bunch of educators and civil society in Egypt that wants to come to the fore as well. So it’s important for us not to say that our own only two options are either the Muslim Brotherhood or a suppressed people.” Bull. Hey Barry – look what just happened in Egypt: Report: Egypt Legalizes Muslim Brotherhood Soon Iran will have nukes (see below) and the Muslim Brother hood will control Egypt. God bless you, Bibi – and the Israeli people! (Thanks to Lee for the article link.)
Another 0bama official hits the road. They’re leaving in droves. But no big deal…can you imagine if there had been a revolving door like this with Bush’s economic team? We’d have a daily count on the nightly news. Goolsbee hasn’t even been there a year. Apparently he’s going back to Chicago to teach…and advise Barry on his 2012 campaign.

But what about “the most transparent administration in history”? DeMint Seeks Answers on NLRB’s Boeing Complaint | The Foundry “Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) wants the National Labor Relations Board to turn over all documents related to its recent complaint against The Boeing Co.

A teachable moment. Experts back Sarah Palin’s historical account – Common American Journal It’s so funny how the lamestream media hang on every word Sarah Palin says! Just so they can tear her apart….but it never works. Yet they complained that she didn’t give them the schedule for her bus tour in advance. She should have handed them a simple, written statement: “EAT MY DUST!” AND – Astute HDR reader George shared the following with me- A small effort would reveal that:
(1) in addition to Revere and Dawes there were probably as many as forty riders spreading the news that night.
(2) Revere, Dawes and Prescott were detained by British troops at a roadblock in Lincoln. Prescott and Dawes escaped.
(3) Revere was detained and questioned. He was then escorted toward Lexington at gunpoint. In the morning, hearing gunfire, the British officers took Revere’s horse and rode toward Lexington.
(4) Revere did warn the British that there would soon be 500 men at Lexington ready to fight. Here’s a link from George with a more complete account of Paul Revere’s ride: Paul Revere
More lies from 0bama’s crew.

Only two months, folks. UN Watchdog: Iran could produce a nuclear weapon within two months | EUTimes.net “Iran is only a matter of months from being able to create a nuclear weapon, according to experts…..In order to halt the process, forces will have to deploy ground forces – airstrikes will no longer be sufficient.” Meanwhile, our feckless president does nothing.
Sweet home Alabama. Alabama’s Law On Immigrants Tops Arizona’s – Investors.com “HB56 requires proof of citizenship or residency before voting, a giant protection against vote fraud. It prohibits aliens not lawfully present in the United States from receiving state or local financial benefits.” E-Verify is also mandatory.
