Will the “October Surprise” be Obama’s Middle East policy screw-ups?

From ForeignPolicy:

The U.S. has lost track of some of Syria’s chemical weapons, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Friday, and does not know if any potentially lethal chemicals have fallen into the hands of Syrian rebels or Iranian forces inside the country.

“There has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place. Where exactly that’s taken place, we don’t know.” Panetta said, in a Pentagon press briefing.

Panetta said that the “main sites” in Syria storing chemical weapons with which the Pentagon is most concerned remain secured by the Syrian military. But there is “some intelligence” that “limited” movements of weapons from other sites have occurred, he said, “for the Syrians to better secure what they – the chemicals.”

Panetta’s statement follows reporting that Syrian rebels claim to have taken control of a military base that contains chemical weapons.

“But with regards to the movement of some of this and whether or not they’ve been able to locate some of it,” he said of U.S. intelligence, “we just don’t know.”

Of course this will not be deemed racist since it comes from Democrats who have a long documented history of racism.

From Weekly Standard:

A printed mailer sent out by the Utah Democratic party features what appears to be a darkened photo of Republican House candidate Mia Love. Below is the image of the mailer:

 

Here’s the original photograph, in color:

 

This isn’t the latest advertisement against Love, who would be the first black Republican woman in Congress, that seems to have racial undertones. An ad from Center Forward, a PAC associated with the Blue Dog Democrats, is running in Love’s district and claims the Saratoga Springs mayor is soft on crime because she cut budgets for police protective wear. “Mia Love’s record?” the voiceover says. “Skyrocketing crime, putting police and us at risk.” The ad shows a b-roll of police tape and a scared woman looking out her window. The ad then shows a black and white photo of Love. Watch the video>>>

Obama and his supporters hardest hit by this poll.

From FoxNews:

A large majority of likely voters believes all Americans should pay some federal income tax — even if it is as little as one percent of what they make.

Seventy-nine percent say everyone should pay something, according to a Fox News poll released Thursday.  That includes 85 percent of Republicans, 83 percent of independents and 71 percent of Democrats.

According to the IRS, last year approximately 41 percent of tax filers did not pay federal income tax.  The Tax Policy Center estimates that will increase to 46 percent this year.

Most voters (73 percent) are at least somewhat familiar with the widely-broadcast videotape of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney talking about “47 percent of Americans” and the number of people paying no federal income tax.  Romney also talks about his concern that the country is becoming an entitlement society and that many are too dependent on government.  Journalists and pundits speculated the tape would damage Romney’s campaign.  Yet a 63-percent majority thinks the substance of Romney’s comment about dependence on government is mostly (36 percent) or somewhat true (27 percent).

Who would have thought it? It’s all about race, and not policies, for those who vote Democrat.

From CBSLocal:

Jay-Z recently revealed his conservative leanings. While he was promoting the NBA 2K13game at the 40/40 Club in Manhattan, he offered his philosophy on politics and voiced his support for small government.

Yet the idiot probably supports ObamaCare and Obama’s regulation record.

While the Brooklyn rapper is a high profile endorser of President Obama, he’s no fan of Washington.

“I don’t even like the word politics,” Jay-Z told MTV News. ”It implies something underhanded and I think we need less government.”

Yet the idiot raised $4 million for big-government/government knows best Obama.

Despite his support for the President, Jay-Z’s “less government” viewpoint is more in line with Obama’s opponents on the right, such as Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who also calls for smaller government. But his stance on smaller government aside, Jay-Z is all in for the president’s re-election.

“I support Barack because I gotta respect that sort of vision. I gotta respect a man who is the first black President ever,” he said. “To have that sort of vision and dream, I have to support that.”

Obama’s white mother would disagree.

Obama and his goons lie simply because they know the media will not call them out on it.

MSNBC sinks to a all-new low. This isn’t the first time the left-wing media arm of the Obama regime has edited tape. Anyone remember the armed white Tea Party member carrying an AR-15. No? That’s because it was a black Tea Party member but that went against MSNBC’s narrative that the Tea Party is an all-white, racist organization who hates Obama because of his skin color and not due to his policies.

Then you had the Trayvon Martin edited tapes that NBC used to paint George Zimmerman as a racist. The liberal media needs to be destroyed and thankfully only 8% trust the bullshit they air.

Just more race-based justice from the Obama Department of Injustice.

From WaPo:

Four Republican lawmakers have accused the Justice Department of inappropriately striking a deal with city officials in St. Paul, Minn., to drop an appeal in a Supreme Court civil rights case in exchange for the federal government abandoning its support for a separate lawsuit against the city.

In a letter to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., Sen. Charles E. Grassley (Iowa) and three House members said that Justice officials struck a quid pro quo in February with St. Paul officials to withdraw a housing discrimination case before the Supreme Court in exchange for Justice declining to intervene in an unrelated False Claims Act case against the city.

The lawmakers said they found out about the alleged deal during a private briefing with Justice officials.

“We were shocked to learn during this briefing and in subsequent document examination that Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez, over the objections of career Justice Department attorneys, enticed the city to drop its lawsuit that Mr. Perez did not want decided by the Supreme Court,” wrote Grassley and Reps. Darrell Issa (Calif.), Lamar Smith (Tex.) and Patrick T. McHenry (N.C.).

This is the same guy who dropped voter intimidation charges against the New Black Panthers Party.

Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler said in a statement that “the resolution reached in these cases was in the best interests of the United States and consistent with the Department’s practice in reaching global settlements.”

“The decision was appropriate and made following an examination of the relevant facts, law and policy considerations at issue,” she added.

St. Paul City Attorney Sara Grewing said that the primary reason that the city dismissed its petition to the Supreme Court in Magner v. Gallagher was “to preserve 40 years of civil rights law.”

Hmmm, it has to do with race. Whodathunkit?

But Grewing also said that the Justice Department’s decision not to intervene in two lawsuits against the city was a factor. “When the city dismissed the Magner petition, the Department of Justice declined to intervene — and thus not oppose the city — in those two lawsuits,” she said in a statement.

Grewing added that the secondary reason for dismissing the petition on the eve of oral arguments was “to avoid conflict with the federal government in two pending lawsuits against the city that the city considered to be without merit.”

Justice’s decision not to be involved did not end the two lawsuits. One of them was brought by a businessman charging that St. Paul had falsely certified that it was using federal money to create jobs for low-income workers of all races when it was focused only on employing minorities.

This has been a pattern for Eric Holder’s DOJ and the Obama administration. Everything is viewed through a race prism and all policies are to redistribute wealth from one group to another “disenfranchised” group.

In early October 2011, career lawyers from the Justice’s fraud section recommended that the federal government join the lawsuit, characterizing the city’s behavior as a “particularly egregious example” of false certifications, according to congressional investigators.

So the city was committing fraud against the US taxpayers but the DOJ drops the lawsuit to protect “40 years of civil right laws?”

But in the letter, the lawmakers charged that Perez “bargained away a valid case of fraud against American taxpayers” to persuade St. Paul to drop its appeal in the civil rights case.

So, why did Perez drop the fraud case against the city? It was because he didn’t want the Supreme Court to interfere:

Mr. Perez fretted that a decision in the City’s favor would dry up the massive mortgage lending settlements his Division was obtaining by suing banks for housing discrimination based on disparate effects rather than any proof of intent to discriminate.[5]  Accordingly, as documents reviewed by Committee staff show, he orchestrated a deal to induce the City to drop its Supreme Court challenge.  In exchange for St. Paul dropping its case before the high court, the Justice Department declined to intervene in an unrelated False Claims Act (FCA) case that had the potential to return over $180 million in damages to the U.S. treasury.

Guy Benson dissects, via TownHall:

This spot has a “closing argument” feel to it, even though it’s not even October yet.  In it, he makes four “new” promises, all of which we’ve heard before:

(1) His “plan” is to magically create a million manufacturing jobs.  Never mind the fact that the manufacturing sector has shed well over half a million jobs during his tenure, including 15,000 last month alone.  Focus on the words. 

(2) He pledges increased energy independence.  Never mind that he made similar unfulfilled promises during his last campaign, that he’s manipulated science and unilaterally blockeddomestic energy projects that his green allies don’t like.  Focus on the words.

(3) He calls for new “investments” to help build our economy.  Never mind that his investment record (using our money and borrowed funds) has been piss poor over the last four years, and that we’re trillions in the hole because of it.  Focus on the words.

(4) He says he’ll reduce the deficit through a “balanced” approach.  Never mind that he’sshattered his first-term promise to halve the deficit by now, and that his claimed war “savings” have been pummeled by fact-checkers as a thoroughly unserious gimmick.  Focus on the words.

More proof the terrorist attack was not spontaneous.

From the Daily Beast:

In the hours following the 9/11 anniversary attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. intelligence agencies monitored communications from jihadists affiliated with the group that led the attack and members of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb(AQIM), the group’s North African affiliate.

In the communications, members of Ansar al-Sharia (AAS) bragged about their successful attack against the American consulate and the U.S. ambassador, according to three U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast anonymously because they were not authorized to talk to the press.

At this stage there is no consensus inside the U.S. intelligence community that AQIM planned the attack, but the communications are more evidence that the attack was no spontaneous reaction to an Internet video, as the Obama administration had said for the first nine days after the attack.

You eat what I tell you to eat!

Her husband is trying to bankrupt us and she’s trying to starve the kids.

PARSIPPANY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Students at Parsippany Hills High School held a strategy session on Thursday to discuss a potential lunch strike, on Friday, over what they have called inadequately sized meals.

“This year you’re eating lunch and you’re like ‘Did I even eat?’ You’re not even full,” senior Brandon Faris told CBS 2′s Derricke Dennis.

New federal guidelines stemming from first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign have resulted in limits on protein and bread, and an increase in vegetables and fruits. The changes have also come at an increased cost.

What a lot of people don’t know is that Democrats took money out of the food stamp program to pay for Michelle’s food nazism.

All of it has also sparked a student campaign that has included online parody videos of students falling sleep in class and performing sluggishly in sports.

They hope to further their efforts with a cafeteria boycott that will cost the school money, and students like Faris said they want to know why they are paying the price for other people’s problems.

“If somebody’s obese why should someone like me who’s not obese have to suffer, and eat a small meal when I’d rather have a bigger meal?” he said.

Members of the food service industry told CBS 2 that new federal guidelines have caused a significant shift in portion size.

“There’s a lot less turkey on the sandwich, there’s 33 percent less turkey and the size of the bread has been reduced by a third,” explained Mark Vidovich, who runs Pomptonian Food Service.
