Egyptian Fantasy

 Then a new king,
to whom Joseph meant nothing, 
came to power in Egypt.
Exodus 1

How did Washington become the best friend of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, even as President Mohamed Morsi was asserting dictatorial powers and his followers were beating up secular liberals in the streets of Cairo?

Salma Abu El-Magd arrested after interrupting speech by Muslim Brotherhood leader Essam El-Erian in New York, released after four hours in custody...
Egyptian-American arrested in US after calling Brotherhood leader a ‘liar and a murderer’ 

In an exclusive report for Al-Masry Al-Youm, Mohamad Jarehi reports that protesters suspected of working against the Muslim Brotherhood are tortured and beaten with the knowledge of the police before being handed over for formal detention at a site just outside the presidential palace in Heliopolis.

Egyptian F-16 fighter jets made low passes over the center of Cairo on Sunday in a rare maneuver by the air force over the capital amid high political tension, AFP correspondents reported. The military was not immediately available for comment.

  4. William Binney, a former NSA member turned NSA whistleblower, is saying to whomever will hear that the NSA is storing information—from emails to google searches to Facebook posts—on every single citizen of the United States, and they’re doing it all without a single warrant. While his interview with Russia Today occurred just a few days ago, the story about a highly classified government complex in Bluffdale, Utah, where it is believed that all of this information will be stored, broke back in March.

  9. ANOTHER Bullseye Painted On The Backs Of U.S. Military Vets…

    You know the world is flipping upside down…going off the rails…when those who are most appreciative of the U.S. military – and what they sacrifice for all our freedoms – seek to discourage others from joining their ranks, at least until the Pyromaniac-in-Chief is hauled out of office! Fellow patriots, a woman’s gotta do what she gotta do.

    And the likes of Dem Senator Schumer (a political operative to the depths of his ‘progressive’ soul) has the temerity to feign, that a so called mental illness should preclude vets from owning guns, yet in no way does he address the real dangers to the nation; ensuring that Muslim terrorists/leftist anarchists are included in every bill which deals with national defense! You know, the good for the goose..the gander too…and all that jazz. But never mind, such truth telling ain’t gonna happen because the brouhaha is NOT about national security. Not at all. However, it is about total control aggregated in the hands of radical, revolutionary leftists, the same crew which hails themselves as ‘progressives’, liberals and human rights advocates. For crying out loud.

    Charlie was born in New York City April 27th, 1924 to the late Mary Nammack Boyle and Judge John Neville Boyle, Sr. He resided in New York City, then at the family home "Faraway Hills" on Boggs Hill Road in Newtown, CT. He was a Danbury resident since his marriage.

    He bravely and with conviction served his country in the U.S. Navy with an Honorable Discharge in 1946.

    Charlie was educated in the scholastic tradition, graduating in 1942 from Cranwell Preparatory School. His quest for knowledge led him to receive in 1949 from Yale University a B.S. in Botany, in 1956 from Fairfield University, an M.A. in Education. In 1960, as a National Science Fellow at Rutgers University, he was instituted into the Earth Science Institute. In 1964 from Union College, he received a M.S.T. in Geology. Additionally, graduate courses in religious studies were taken at Fairfield University, and in 1976 at the State University of New York-Fordham sponsored by the John XXIII Institute and the Maryknoll Seminary which resulted in an M.A. in Eastern Oriental Theology. In addition, through the Universal Life Church he received a Doctor of Divinity and Doctor of Metaphysics.

    Professionally, he was a safety engineer and senior field underwriter with the National Insurance Company. He retired from teaching the sciences in 1981, having taught last in the Westport school system. He was currently involved in the study of Metaphysics, Mythical systems, the Megalithic Phenomena, as well as the language system, investigating, comparing and interpreting ancient languages to those of today. He was a lecturer throughout the Northeast and Colorado, with several copyrighted monographs. His book in progress is entitled, "Megaliths, Mysteries and Messages." He was a member of the Epigraphic Society, the Health Science Institute, a Dowsing Consultant, a healing practitioner, and a Native American pipe carrier. He was also a past elected member of the Danbury School Board.

  43. The regime will not fall due to these demonstrations alone. Remember what happened to the Mubarak regime — it fell for the following reasons:

    – The army would not defend it.

    – The army then overthrew it.

    – The Muslim Brotherhood-led opposition would not compromise.

    – The West would not support the regime.

    These conditions, except perhaps the first one, are not in place today. Ultimately, Mubarak’s regime — not just Mubarak, but the whole regime — fell only because the army overthrew it. There is no sign of this happening now. And the West, ironic as it might be, supports the Muslim Brotherhood government, especially because the U.S. is willing to go ahead with transferring almost $10 billion in aid. Also, the Brotherhood will not concede to the opposition on any substantive point, despite whatever cosmetic maneuvers it makes.

    How not to build a winning army

    No soldier who goes through basic training learns how to use his rifle as a police baton. Not every soldier learns, in one course or another, how to extract himself from a violent mob. Soldiers' training is based on a legacy of victory in battle, helping their wounded comrades under fire, and using their weapons accurately to avoid hitting "uninvolved" parties. Each combat soldier learns how to hold a line while charging toward the enemy, so as not to mistakenly shoot a comrade in the back.

    However, no soldier was ever taught to hold a line with lawyers, who represent those who claim to carry the badge of morality and peace but won't hesitate to stab him in the back.

    In the not-so-distant past, all combat soldiers were willing and ready for the moment when they would need to use their weapons and put to use everything they had been prepared and trained for. In the not-so-distant past, each soldier knew that "returning home safely" was a goal achieved through the level of their soldiering skills, partly the result of the expertise acquired through training and partly due to the dependency on one's friends and commanders.

    The reality has changed but no one bothered to give the soldiers the proper tools to deal with this impossible situation. Today, "coming home safely" means not falling victim to an embarrassing photograph taken by a terrorist with a camera for a weapon. This is what happens when you take skilled soldiers trained to win and ask them to be policemen and crowd dispersers.

    Our short memory clouds our judgment and requires us to provide the correct guidance to our soldiers, our children, in the battle they are currently fighting. The lynch carried out by the crazed mob in Ramallah 12 years ago, in which two Israel Defense Forces reservists were horrifically murdered, has been all but forgotten. A little less than a year ago a father and son were killed when a rock thrown at their vehicle hit the father in the head while driving. They, too, have faded from our memories.

    Instead of trying to appease the cameras and the "foreign" journalists, it is preferable to inform any person with a rock in his hand or behaving violently that the IDF doesn't intend to employ the same means. The IDF will hurt whoever threatens its soldiers, citizens or borders, and will do so with the use of live fire, precise and several times more painful. The soldiers who protect us and allow us to live normal lives need to know they were sent to carry out an achievable, legal mission, and will receive backup for any act that doesn't deviate from the purity of arms, without regard to the purity of the camera.

    Two weeks ago was the end of Operation Pillar of Defense, in which Israel displayed its military, intelligence and moral might. The ink on the cease-fire deal has still not dried and Khaled Mashaal has already stoked the flames of hate to new levels in Gaza, clearly signaling what awaits Israel once Hamas also gains control in Ramallah. In the meantime, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas continues to encourage the popular resistance, while we act as if the whole world is a stage and the soldiers are marionettes.

    If our soldiers continue popping tear gas in the alleyways of Hebron and Kafr Qaddum, if we keep seeing soldiers flee enraged mobs because they aren't allowed to use their weapons — then please don't be alarmed if tomorrow morning we wake up to find tens of thousands of Palestinians marching toward Jerusalem, Jaffa and Beersheba.

    The only way to face the future is to determine, now, that we won't allow the rock thrower of today to become tomorrow's suicide bomber, and for the stone hurled at us to be replaced with a rocket or roadside bomb.

    shooting the lawyers and photographers might be a good place to start

  61. BabbaZee8:38 AM

    The UN is now hosting in the public entrance hall of its New York headquarters a Palestinian exhibit which includes pieces that artfully depict all of Israel as Palestine. The display goes hand-in-hand with the logo featured at the top of the cover page of the speech that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ delivered to the General Assembly on November 29, 2012. That emblem continues to promote a
    one state solution, Palestine without Israel.On November 29th the General Assembly granted “Palestine” the status of
    “non-member observer state” under the pretense that the move brought the world closer to a two-state solution. But that same evening Palestinian UN representative Riyadh Mansour opened an exhibit entitled “Palestine – Memories
    Dreams Perseverance.” The political message is not subtle, with the works bearing titles such as “homeless,” “delirious in exile,” and “to Jerusalem we travel.”

    The emblems of a long list of Palestinian terrorist organizations include the familiar shape in which Israel, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank are all combined into the only and only Palestine.

    AMERICAN EMPIRE two words that don't fit together.
    The definition of Empire has not changed, but the definition of American
    has.This film examines the causes of what is destroying America
    and the illusion of freedom that we have been indoctrinated into
    by corporate media.
    Beginning with the founding of the Federal Reserve,
    a private banking cartel that controls debt and inflation,
    an economic empire has been created that is dedicated
    to destroying our planet and all its natural resources
    in an effort to amass money.
    Our food is produced to maximize profit despite the fact
    it is lacking in nutrition,
    is filled with pesticides (cide+to kill),
    and is causing diseases of epidemic proportions.
    Our medical industry is geared to maximizing profit
    as opposed to creating health.
    Our financial industry is a giant monopoly game
    where people who create nothing amass huge amounts of money
    at the expense of the middle class and the poor.
    All of this is orchestrated by a state, not a government,
    that is ruled by Wall Street.

    Our Secret Connections with the Muslim Brotherhood
    Consider President Eisenhower. In 1953, the year before the Brotherhood was outlawed by Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser, a covert US propaganda program headed by the US Information Agency brought over three dozen Islamic scholars and civic leaders mostly from Muslim countries for what officially was an academic conference at Princeton University. The real reason behind the meeting was an effort to impress the visitors with America’s spiritual and moral strength, since it was thought that they could influence Muslims’ popular opinion better than their ossified rulers. The ultimate goal was to promote an anti-Communist agenda in these newly independent countries, many of which had Muslim majorities.

  73. BabbaZee9:11 AM

    1953..... Ike was an RRRRRRRRRR

    One of the leaders, according to Eisenhower’s appointment book, was “The Honorable Saeed Ramahdan, Delegate of the Muslim Brothers.”* The person in question (in more standard romanization, Said Ramadan) was the son-in-law of the Brotherhood’s founder and at the time widely described as the group’s “foreign minister.” (He was also the father of the controversial Swiss scholar of Islam Tariq Ramadan.)

  74. BabbaZee9:12 AM

    By the end of the decade, the CIA was overtly backing Ramadan.

  75. BabbaZee9:13 AM

    The Bush administration devised a strategy to establish close relations
    with Muslim groups in Europe that were ideologically close to the
    Brotherhood, calculating that it could be an interlocutor in dealing
    with more radical groups, such as the home-grown extremists in Paris,
    London, and Hamburg. And, as in the 1950s, government officials wanted
    to project an image to the Muslim world that Washington was close to
    Western-based Islamists. So starting in 2005, the State Department,
    taking account of the Brotherhood’s rising power in Egypt and elsewhere,
    launched an effort to woo the Brotherhood. In 2006, for example, it
    organized a conference in Brussels between European Muslim Brothers and
    American Muslims, such as the Islamic Society of North America, who are
    considered close to the Brotherhood. All of this was backed by CIA
    analyses, with one from 2006 saying that the Brotherhood featured
    “impressive internal dynamism, organization, and media savvy.” Despite
    the concerns of Western allies that supporting the Brotherhood in Europe
    was too risky, the CIA pushed for cooperation. As for the Obama
    administration, it carried over some of the people on the Bush team who
    had helped devise this strategy.

  95. FEMA is still picking up the pieces from Hurricane Sandy more than a month after the storm hit New York City. Although most of the city has returned to normal, federal disaster employees continue to find distressed people, often the elderly and disabled, trapped in apartments in the farthest corners of the city. Federal and city authorities are now assessing what exactly went wrong. Much of the blame thus far lies with the city Housing Authority, which is charged with managing city-owned housing and preparing for exactly this sort of catastrophe.

    A new feature in the New York Times explores just how unprepared and ineffective the Housing Authority was in tackling the largest disaster the city has seen since 9/11. . . . The article compiles an overwhelming list of failures: signs of deep incompetence, political game-playing and multilayer bureaucratic failure on the part of the Housing Authority. Faced with a serious crisis, the agency failed miserably in doing its most basic job—not so much because of a lack of money as because of slothful management and an inefficient, ossified bureaucratic culture. The Housing Authority after Sandy did exactly what bureaucracies usually do: it covered its rear, staged heartwarming photos for the press, and shamefully neglected the poor and the helpless it was supposed to serve. In other words, it behaved much like a failing public school, or any other blue model institution out of its depth and focused mostly on preserving its routine as the real world crumbles around it.

    something in the neighborhood of ,...well,...a shitload of money is going into repairing my bathroom. this too shall pass.

    we brought our "forensic" engineer in this morning along with the insurance agents and their engineer. The insurance company said, "We don't cover that..." and I asked what is it that you don't cover and what steps did you take to conduct failure cause analysis? They hadn't done a damned thing and they knew they were busted. They want to write up a second claim and we refuse, because that allows them to drop us entirely from our insurance policy and they don't want to tell their home office they did a half-assed job and fucked up. That's not my problem. It's their problem.

    I had work to do this morning and had to excuse myself from the room before I strangled the agent and dialed up my brother. I handed the phone to my insurance agent, and big brother gave him an attitude adjustment of some sort. I'll have to ask him about that sometime. I have no idea what he said, but I've never seen a white person turn whiter than that moment.

    They are going to pay and they're going to pay through the nose. I've already got a new insurance agent lined up.

    Well the fact of the matter insurance wise as I understood it was: if a condition causes water damage in a home over a period of time and the homeowner did not address it, this is not covered. Flooding due to weather is not covered either you have to get FEDERAL flood insurance. Water damage is only covered on home owners policies if it is an immediate tragedy like pipes bursting or something like this, and if this sudden event is not triggered by neglect. For instance if the pipes freeze and break and cause damage they will cover that but if the pipes break because no one fixed them for ten years, no... things like this... There is no insurance policy in these United States that will cover damage done by a long term slow leak. So why you are angry at the reps or think that this is not true for you but is for the rest of the United States is beyond me..... ?

    Big win for gun-rights groups: Federal appeals court tosses state ban on carrying concealed weapons

    SPRINGFIELD-In a huge win for gun-rights groups, a federal appeals court in Chicago Tuesday tossed the state's ban on carrying concealed weapons and gave Illinois' Legislature 180 days to craft a law legalizing concealed carry.

    "The debate is over. We won. And there will be a statewide carry law in 2013," said Todd Vandermyde, a lobbyist for the National Rifle Association.

    In a split opinion, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court ruling in two cases downstate that upheld the state's longstanding prohibition against carrying concealed weapons.

    "We are disinclined to engage in another round of historical analysis to determine whether eighteenth-century America understood the Second Amendment to include a right to bear guns outside the home," Judge Richard Posner wrote in the court's majority opinion.

    "The Supreme Court has decided that the amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside. The theoretical and empirical evidence (which overall is inconclusive) is consistent with concluding that a right to carry firearms in public may promote self-defense," he continued.

    "Illinois had to provide us with more than merely a rational basis for believing that its uniquely sweeping ban is justified by an increase in public safety. It has failed to meet this burden," Posner wrote.

    "The Supreme Court's interpretation of the Second Amendment therefore compels us to reverse the decisions in the two cases before us and remand them to their respective district courts for the entry of declarations of unconstitutionality and permanent injunctions," he continued.

    "Nevertheless we order our mandate stayed for 180 days to allow the Illinois legislature to craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment as interpreted in this opinion, on the carrying of guns in public," Posner said.

    In a minority opinion, Judge Ann Williams wrote that Illinois is within its rights to ban weapons in "sensitive places" like government buildings, churches and universities in the name of safety.

    "The Illinois legislature reasonably concluded that if people are allowed to carry guns in public, the number of guns carried in public will increase, and the risk of firearms-related injury or death in public will increase as well," Williams said. "And it is also common sense that the danger is a great one; firearms are lethal."

    Attorney General Lisa Madigan, who was defending the state's prohibition of concealed carry, did not have an immediate response to the ruling released Tuesday morning.

  137. BulgarWheat1:58 PM

    the leak was based on the actual plumbing and not the shower stall as they had first implied (before looking of course). That is covered. This was a sudden cause, as in I took a shower and a bubble ballooned in my living room ceiling about the time I dried off and came downstairs to take the lad to a soccer game.

    Why in the hell even bother with home insurance if they don't cover damage to the home? That makes no sense at all. The perfect scam. Not even the mafia has that kind of chutzpah!

    I've paid them for going on 14 years now and haven't cost them a nickle before. It's time Bulgar got what he invested in. Nothing more, nothing less.

    lots of shit is covered fast and with no problems of course and you have to have it in order to own a home but the whole idea of insurance period is a scam to my thinking as well

    11 Secret Documents Americans Deserve to See

    Many documents produced by the U.S. government are confidential and not released to the public for legitimate reasons of national security. Others, however, are kept secret for more questionable reasons. The fact that presidents and other government officials have the power to deem materials classified provides them with an opportunity to use national security as an excuse to suppress documents and reports that would reveal embarrassing or illegal activities.

    I’ve been collecting the stories of unreleased documents for several years. Now I have chosen 11 examples that were created—and buried—by both Democratic and Republican administrations and which cover assassinations, spying, torture, 50-year-old historical events, presidential directives with classified titles and…trade negotiations.

    On the backdrop of the Obama administration's decision to designate the Syrian jihadi group Jabhat Al-Nusra a terrorist organization, there have been signs of mounting support for the latter. The designation, set for release today, December 11, 2012, is, in fact, an amendment to the 2004 designation as terrorist of the Al-Qaeda affiliate in Iraq, the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), which the current U.S. administration, relying on "sufficient factual basis," claims that has been operating in Syria under the guise of Jabhat Al-Nusra.[1]

    The designation, as mentioned, has generated a fresh wave of support for Jabhat Al-Nusra, which has been credited with executing numerous sophisticated attacks against the Syrian regime and playing a crucial role in weakening the latter. Syrian opposition websites and online campaigns on Facebook and Twitter have called on the public to take part in support rallies for Jabhat Al-Nusra to be held this coming Friday, under the slogan "No to American Involvement [in Syria] – We Are All Jabhat Al-Nusra." At the same time, the designation has also generated increased anti-U.S. sentiment among Syrians.

    Following is an initial review of the reactions to the U.S. designation of Jabhat Al-Nusra as a terrorist organization:

    On December 6, 2012, the Syrian opposition website published an article in which it acknowledged Jabhat Al-Nusra's role in weakening the Syrian regime. It also questioned the U.S.'s motives behind its designation of the group as a terrorist organization, claiming that, in doing so, it hoped to check the mounting popularity and support Jabhat Al-Nusra enjoys among the Syrians. On the issue of Jabhat Al-Nusra's declared goals of establishing an Islamic state following the toppling of the Bashar Al-Assad regime, the website said that there was "nothing wrong" with Jabhat Al-Nusra's stated aspirations, especially since these are shared by a large number of Syrians, particularly among members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA). The website warned the Syrian National Coalition (SNC) against accepting such "serious dictations" by the U.S. as the terrorist designation, urging it to oppose the move decisively.[2]

    In another article, urged all Syrians to unite behind Jabhat Al-Nusra. It also questioned why the group was targeted by the U.S. despite not having killed even a single American, whereas, it said, the Syrian regime has killed tens of thousands of Syrians and committed multiple massacres of its own people. The website urged FSA leaders and members to declare their solidarity with Jabhat Al-Nusra, and called upon the SNC to take political steps to halt the U.S.'s move.[3] In yet another article, warned the U.S. against escalating its hostile actions vis-à-vis Jabhat Al-Nusra, adding that such actions would backfire, leading to a dramatic increase in the group's popularity among Syrians. It also said that the U.S. has missed its chance for effective involvement in Syria, and warned it that any involvement now would turn the country into a graveyard for America.[4]

    Social media outlets were also used to voice criticism of the U.S.'s designation. Several Facebook pages called on the Syrians to take part in rallies to show solidarity with the group, planned, as noted, for this coming Friday, December 14, 2012, under the slogan "No to American Involvement [in Syria] – We Are All Jabhat Al-Nusra." One such page has thus far generated over 20,000 "likes." On Twitter, one member asked supporters of Jabhat Al-Nusra to flood the social networking service with the group's propaganda, in a show of support for the mujahideen and by way of censuring the U.S.

    a neighbor never returned another wrench of mine.
    an asshole my wife works with was trying to use my 16 inch chainsaw on what I assume was a much larger tree and blew up the gears before I ever had a chance to use it at my own home, and now my Fisker trimmers have gone missing when the wife and son used then on Sunday.

    I'm going to put my tools away and no! No one may borrow them again. This is starting to get old. My grandfather, Pop, said, "Borrowing someone's tools is like borrowing the truck or their best hunting dog." Pop was a very wise man.

    I had an incredible stereo back then. Akai 747 reel to reel, Bang-Olefsen amp and turn-table,, and an Akai cassette with 4 Bose 901's. I know some folks don't like the Bose speakers, but the surround sound really is amazing, least to me. Music in the round.
