Verse of the Day
Exodus 9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.
I believe that Obama was raised up by God as judgment on America, just as God raised up Pharaoh for judgment on Egypt. He is a tremendous agent of destruction.
What appears to be happening is that as Obama promotes his godless agenda, God is now openly and clearly destroying Obama’s presidency. Five years ago he was hailed almost as a messiah figure, while now he is openly mocked at both home and abroad. I see no way out of this for him. He is locked into destruction because he is an ideologue of rebellion against God. He is a proven liar with no credibility.
Obama mocked God and His word and now he is mocked.
Please link Obama being the world’s evangelist for homosexuality and trying to divide Israel with the destruction of his presidency. This linkage is now so clear.
The problem is, as God is judging Obama, it is going to spill over into America. It will affect the economy and may lead into social unrest. He is so weak that it could induce China, North Korea, Russia or Iran to move against us. His weakness could start a world war.
We are heading into a tremendous volatile time with no turning back. Obama is locked into early next year, trying to divide Israel and Jerusalem. It really does appear that early next year America is going to be divided at the very time Pharaoh Obama touches Israel.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Israel and the Middle East War
‘Israel will attack Iran if you sign the deal 11/10/13 Israel is going to attack no matter what happens. Is this why France backed out of the deal with Iran?
Obama Turns on Israel 11/12/13 Obama’s foreign policy is in shambles. America’s enemies do not fear us and our longtime allies do not trust us! What a mess as the curse on Obama is really starting to manifest.
No Illusions Concerning the Obama Administration 11/10/13 Israel now clearly sees the monster it faces with Obama. He never intended to defend Israel against Iran. The way he would do it is it was a cover to protect Saudi Arabia.
Israeli-US rifts ‘should not be aired publicly,’ Liberman says 11/12/13 Unless Obama needs Israel in a war, I do not see this getting better. The real Obama is now showing his colors and he has no interest in Israel.
PA: Arafat was poisoned by Jews like Islam’s Prophet Muhammad 11/12/13 This could become a rallying cry in the coming war against Israel.
Mufti: Jerusalem is ‘Islamic’ 11/12/13 This is ground zero for Bible prophecy. The Muslims cannot allow the Jews to control Jerusalem. It means that allah is weak and cannot defeat the Zionists!
Jordan vetoes Israeli request to allow Jewish prayer on Temple Mount11/12/13 Once again, this is ground zero for Bible prophecy.
Arab textbooks are not the only ones erasing Israel from their maps. Scholastic, the world’s largest publisher of children’s books, has also eliminated the Jewish state in a book.
“Thea Stilton and the Blue Scarab Hunt,” part of the popular Geronimo Stilton children’s series translated from Italian and published by Scholastic in 2012, tells the story of a group of investigative journalists involved in a treasure hunt in Egypt.
The story commences with a map of modern Egypt and its neighboring countries. While Sudan, Libya and Saudi Arabia appear clearly on the map, the territory of Israel is completely covered by Jordan, painted red. A line indicating the Israeli border with the Sinai Peninsula does appear in the book.
Adina Golombek, a Jerusalem resident who emigrated to Israel from Canada last year, said she was shocked to discover Israel’s absence while reading the book with her 7-year-old son. Read the rest
There has been an understanding among a number of Arab governments which stated that the first objective was to force Israel through world pressure to return all the lands lost by three of these countries resulting from the Six Day War in June of 1967. The initial efforts to have Israel required to return these lands failed as the Israelis resisted and at that time still had the support of much of the world, particularly the Western World. The main contributing factor to the support Israel was receiving was due to the perception that the Arab Israeli conflict was perceived accurately as one tiny little country, Israel, standing against Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab World. The statements and propaganda emanating from the Arab World supported the concept that Israel was fighting against almost unimaginable odds facing a coordinated attack supported by countries with tens, if not hundreds or even thousands, of times sized militaries, tanks, planes, troops, helicopters, trucks, rifles, artillery, mortars and every other imaginable military equipment and other essentials. The solution to this problem was to find some manner of changing the equation on the ground, but how to shrink the Arab forces and make Israel to appear as the military giant instead of the outmanned and outgunned small country in a sea of enemies. There was a solution and it was to invent a group and isolate them from the rest of the Arab World and recast the representation of the two adversaries replacing the overwhelming Arab forces with a small and virtually defenseless and powerless group of Arabs with no military and no resources and cast Israel as an oppressor. This was what brought on the invention of the Palestinians as the indigenous people from whom the Israelis had stolen their lands and forced them into refugee camps where they languished under the most inhuman conditions.

It would appear that This is not real and not his opinion.
With the way the Obama administration has cut off our access to our own energy sources, we are more and more dependent on foreign oil. And yet this is exactly what Mr. Obama claimed that he was going to change. With Iran heading OPEC we are in a worse situation than we were in the late 70’s under Jimmy Carter. Then it was just a few Americans that were held hostage, now it seems that all Americans are at risk of being held hostage and most of them are not even aware that they are at risk.
It’s time that we elected a leader that is interested in freeing the American people from the real hostage taker, Barack Obama. If there is anyone in America that truly wishes to remain a prisoner, I am sure that there is someone some where that is willing to make that a reality for them. As for me, I am quite tired of being held at the point of a gun and am ready to be released.
OPEC Takes Aim At America
July 27, 2011 by John Myers
Only once have I looked down the barrel of a gun. I can tell you it was damn disconcerting. It happened 25 years ago. The automatic rifles that were drawn on me then are pointed at America today. Yet President Barack Obama refuses to acknowledge that America is facing Middle Eastern guns.
In 1986, I traveled to Geneva to attend an emergency OPEC meeting. My father Vernon was in his early 70s but had lost none of the drive that shaped his youth as a reporter, which led him to found Oil Week Magazine and Myers Finance & Energy (MFE).
Vern was old school. While he had not changed from his reporting days, the world had. I got a sense of that when we pulled up to the hotel decked with machine gun-toting policemen.
My dad either didn’t notice the tight security at the hotel or he simply didn’t care. He asked the desk clerk, “Where’s the meeting?”
That was a tough question for anyone, never mind someone not familiar with English.
“Are you looking for the OPEC meeting? That is on the penthouse,” he responded.
“Thanks,” mumbled my dad, as he marched toward the elevator. As I crept behind, I heard the clerk say: “Sir, you are not allowed up there!”
Inside the elevator my dad said, “Penthouse!”
The elevator operator protested until my dad spelled it out: “We are the press.”
The operator reluctantly pushed the button. As our elevator climbed higher, I got a sinking feeling in my stomach. I understood we were about to walk in unannounced on some of the world’s biggest power brokers.
The elevator stopped. The doors slid open and before you could say, “Sheik Your Booty,” four machine guns were aimed at our heads. There stood four of the biggest men I have ever seen, each wearing a turban and a bulletproof vest.
Questions were barked out in Arabic. My dad was led down a hall while a single guard stood over me. I must have put him at ease; because after a few minutes, he shouldered his gun and offered me a cigarette.
Our entrance was like the Keystone Kops, but luck would have it that Vern got his story. Down the hall was a member of the Saudi delegation who remembered my dad from a 1962 trip to the Kingdom. While I stood before the guard, Vern was talking to his old Saudi acquaintance. He learned that Saudi Arabia was going to open up its spigots. Over the next several months, oil prices began to fall dramatically.
An Energy Crisis Waiting to Explode
That OPEC no longer exists. The de facto leader of OPEC today is militant Iran, whose influence grows with each passing month. Whether we know it or not, America is staring into the guns of OPEC.
A recent simulation called Securing America’s Future Energy declared that the United States lacks effective energy policy responses in the event of another OPEC embargo. The Heritage Foundation, which is made up of current and former government officials and diplomats, reported that protracted turmoil in principal OPEC countries has the potential to cause a sharp decline in oil production and an acute price spike.
The crisis game they played was called Oil ShockWave, and it took place in The Ritz-Carlton ballroom a stone’s throw from the White House. Players included George Bush’s former deputy secretary of state John Negroponte, a former official of Jimmy Carter’s Administration and a former Shell Oil chief executive. They participated as make-believe cabinet officials. At the conclusion of the simulation, participants acknowledged America had become hostage to its need for oil, yet they couldn’t quite seem to break away.
“We are reaping the harvest of our dependence on petroleum and the fact that the countries that produce it are either unstable or hostile to our interests,” declared Stephen Hadley, who reprised his real-life role as Bush’s national security adviser. “How did we let this happen when we’ve known we’ve been dependent on oil for 20 years?”
Former Shell Oil chief executive officer John Hofmeister played the role of energy secretary in the exercise. He gave assurances about U.S. domestic supply. Not one person called for an accelerated transition to renewable energies. According to one participant, nobody even whispered the words “climate change.”
Hofmeister said: “The most powerful message that we have is that the United States of America has more oil than any other country in the world that we know of. We have simply been holding ourselves back from producing that oil. I think it is time to really get the message to Congress that it is time to start producing.”
My question is: When is Obama going to wake up to the impending crisis? It may already be too late, and if Muslim guns turn on the Saudi Royal family itself, it will be far too late — not just for the House of Saud for but the United States.
Fleischer’s conclusion is that Obama should announce the Federal government is going to open up every acre of land for oil drilling that was previously declared off-limits.
After 2½ years of disappointment, I think my odds of winning the SuperLotto are better than the chances that Obama will wake up to the petroleum peril America is facing. That is bad news for the country, which is staring down the barrel of $8 per gallon gasoline prices. Read the rest at Personal Liberty Digest:

This is something that needs to be read along with the post from my friend the Mad Jewess and is added here with her permission from one of her responders -QV. Please read and prepare yourself for the future:
Even as the Muslim Psychopath’s administration is planning the destruction of America, we notice that the RIFT between America’s darling — Saudi Arabia and the US widens. Saudi King Abdullah landed a surprise on the Gulf Cooperation Council summit convened in Riyadh Tuesday, May 10: He proposed inviting two Arab monarchs, Morocco’s King Mohammed V and Jordan’s King Abdullah II to join the GCC with full membership privileges. The king has created the Saudi version of a unity government by pulling together the three main royal factions on the basis of a consensus. Abdullah’s own faction and the two headed by Saudi Foreign Minister Saud bin Faisal, and Saudi Interior Minister and designated crown prince, the Sudairi Prince Nayef, all agree that the kingdom has come to a parting of the ways in its historic alliance with the United States.
With a clear message to the US: NO MORE OIL FOR US SECURITY SHIELD. This means in practice Saudi Arabia no longer depends on an American defense umbrella for its security and America can no longer rely on Riyadh to regulate its oil supply policy – and therefore its financial activities on world markets – for meeting US political, military and economic interests.
Obama initially sent two senior officials to Riyadh – US Defense Secretary Robert Gates on April 6 and by US National Security Adviser Tom Donilon on April 12 – to try and bring the Saudis back into the fold. Abdullah was not to be talked around.
Saudi Arabia has woken to the fact that the US is a TRAITOR and a most treacherous nation to the Muslim World. King Abdullah’s plea that Hosni Mubarak not be toppled was arrogantly brushed aside by War Mongering America. Since then, King Abdullah has reached out to both Russia and China. Pakistan stands with Saudi Arabia and is at the ready to Nuke America on the king’s orders.
Today, Saudi Arabia demands its right to nuclear weapons in view of Iran’s success with long range missiles, capable of hitting Israel and the US. At a recent meeting Pakistan’s Ali Zardari and Hamid Karzai were received by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei. Khamenei stressed : “There is no threat from any country except the US”
One main focus of the conference was to highlight that the US has been using international terrorism as the pretext to intervene in Afghanistan and in the Middle East and to interfere in their internal affairs. Khamenei’s message to the conference, in a nutshell, highlighted the “calculations of satanic world powers, which use terrorism in their policies and planning to achieve their illegitimate goals”.
Zardari highlighted at the conference that Pakistan had suffered immensely during the decade of the US-led war in Afghanistan. He said over 5,000 Pakistani security personnel had lost their lives and the estimated damage in financial terms amounts to US$37 billion for the Pakistani economy. Zardari stressed the importance of the “vital need for a collective campaign” by the regional states in the “war on terror”. Clearly, the tensions that have accrued in the US-Pakistan relationship in the recent period provide the backdrop for this exchange. This is the first time that such a reference has been made at Khamenei’s level
Khamenei sought an “all-out expansion of ties” between Iran and Pakistan and cautioned Zardari that “Washington is trying to sow seeds of dissension in Pakistan to meet its illegitimate goals”. He expressed his appreciation that the Pakistani people were well aware of the US’s “ominous intention” and are resisting the US’s “hegemonic plots”.
At his meeting with Karzai, Khamenei frontally attacked the US plans to set up military bases in Afghanistan. “The Americans are after permanent bases in Afghanistan, which is a dangerous issue because as long as US troops are in Afghanistan, there would be no real security. The Afghan people are suffering from the US military presence in their country and this presence is a great pain for them and the entire region”, he said.
Both Zardari and Karzai undertook the visit to Tehran with the full awareness that it signified an act of “strategic defiance” of the US – and more important, they knew that Washington would get the message as well.
Karzai would like to secure all the political support that Iran can provide that enables him to press ahead with the reconciliation with the Taliban.
Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, leader of Hezb-i-Islami, which is represented in Karzai’s government, lived in exile in Iran for five years. Iran also wields influence over a variety of non-Pashtun forces that happen to harbor misgivings about Karzai’s peace plans of reconciling the Taliban.
The Response from America’s Black Lunatic is: He announced his plans to begin withdrawing US Military Forces from Afghanistan, which both the Saudis and Pakistan believe will be used, instead, to target them under a plan devised by two of Obama’s most trusted friends, and Pakistani nationals, Wahid Hamid and Hasan Chandoo. Important note about Hamid and Chandoo is that aside from their being the top two bundlers of campaign contributions allowing Obama to become President, they are SHIITE Muslims.
According to a Russian report, Obama ordered his Defense Department to “pre-position” over 7,170 combat-hardened US Soldiers in southern Iraq to prepare for the invasion of Saudi Arabia in a blatant disregard of the American pledge to withdrawal all of their by January 2012.
WAR IS IN THE AIR.
I would also like to add in two articles from Israpundit that go along with this and are a must read:
By David Solway, FrontPage
When one surveys the world situation, one cannot react with anything but intense disquiet and apprehension. The premonition of imminent catastrophe cannot be shunted aside as unthinkable or as the capricious imaginings of the congenitally unstable. War is in the air, as it was in 1914 and 1939, before the actual outbreak of hostilities. And the flashpoints are instantly discernible, namely, the Middle East and the South Asian theater. The sequel appears to be pretty much inevitable.
In a certain sense, assigning blame for the coming eruption is a useless enterprise. Al-Qaeda and the Iranian Shi’ite regime are only acting in character; they are the carnivores of the current political world and cannot be expected to begin acting like herbivores. They have openly declared their intentions many times over and have given every indication of being willing to use nuclear weapons once they control or develop them. Those of us who downplay the utter fanaticism of Twelver Shi’a theology or the visceral savagery and determination of al-Qaeda—both Iran and al-Qaeda may be plausibly defined as “non-rational adversaries”—are living in the flimsiest of bubbles. Russia and China have regularly collaborated with the potential “slayers of mankind” as it is in their nature to do. The former is concerned with supply-profit, the latter with energy demands, and both with the purpose of further weakening the United States. Their lack of forethought is endemic and incurable. As for the feeble European democracies, they cannot do other than posture and appease in the face of an approaching firestorm. That is part of their genome.
But if responsibility for the gathering storm is to be ascribed, it is to the United States of America, in virtue of its pre-eminent position on the global stage and of its failure, under the most dangerous and politically corrupted president in its history, to address the looming threat. For the U.S. until recently was the only nation in the world that enjoyed the power, the means, the legitimacy and the authority to avert the coming disaster, but has now abdicated that responsibility. Indeed, its conduct in the international arena has been entirely myopic and counter-productive.
Its Libyan intervention is a blatant misadventure, without a clear and sustained strategy and in violation of the War Powers Resolution and the Constitution. Its levying of sanctions against Iran is a mordant joke and has had no effect on deterring the mullahs in their quest for nuclear weapons and the development of a long-range delivery system. Its support of the misnamed Arab Spring has led to the credible prospect of an anti-American and anti-Israeli Muslim Brotherhood regime assuming power in Egypt. Its pressuring Israel to make untenable concessions to the Palestinian Authority has only hardened the latter’s negotiating position and rendered the “peace process” null and void.
The absence of a strong and effective Middle East policy has facilitated the takeover of Lebanon by Hezbollah, empowered Hamas in dominating a unity government with Fatah, and permitted Turkey to drift inexorably into the Islamic orbit. And just as the U.S. had little to say about Iran’s crushing of its own people during the popular revolt of 2009, so it remains essentially mute as Syria’s Bashar Assad slaughters his own countrymen with complete impunity. After all, according to a recent statement of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Bashar Assad is a “reformer.” The comedy of terrors is literally mind-boggling.
The result of the American forfeiture of its political will, practical intelligence and moral inheritance, as it grows increasingly to resemble the political caricature that goes by the name of the European Union, is all too predictable. It means that there are only two countries in the world left to meet the Islamic nuclear menace: India, which will have to deal with Pakistan in the event that al-Qaeda gains control of the country’s nuclear capability; and Israel, which at tremendous cost to itself will have little choice but to act against a nuclearizing Iran and its terrorist proxies.
There is no point in deluding ourselves any longer or smugly dismissing apocalyptic scenarios as mere unbridled fear-mongering. War is going to break out in the Middle East, possibly later this year and almost certainly in 2012, and eventually in South Asia. There is a stark likelihood that these may be WMD wars. For if Israel is targeted by Hezbollah’s 40,000-50,000 missiles, some of which are reported to be fitted with chemical and biological payloads and which can reach every corner of the country, it may need to reply in cataclysmic kind in order to survive. Abandoned by its American ally and left to its own resources, it may quite simply have no alternative, unless it agrees to commit national suicide. Despite the promising development of the Arrow anti-ballistic missile program, neither preemption—known in customary international law as “anticipatory self-defense”—nor second-strike reprisal can be ruled out. And if the U.S.-subsidized but unreliable Pakistani regime with its estimated 70-90 nuclear warheads goes rogue, with the finger of al-Qaeda on the nuclear button, India too may have no option but to respond in the same manner.
These two potential war zones are heating up. The Japanese Sankei Shimbun newspaper reveals that North Korea dispatched 160 nuclear experts to Iran in May, and Fars News Agency reports on Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardan’s recent visit Tehran to discuss “a vast range of issues.” We can readily imagine what some of these topics will be. Between Iran and Pakistan falls the shadow. Read the rest at Israpundit:
U.S. to resume formal Muslim Brotherhood contacts
By Arshad Mohammed
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States has decided to resume formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, a senior U.S. official said on Wednesday, in a step that reflects the Islamist group’s growing political weight but that is almost certain to upset Israel and its U.S. backers.
“The political landscape in Egypt has changed, and is changing,” said the senior official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “It is in our interests to engage with all of the parties that are competing for parliament or the presidency.”
The official sought to portray the shift as a subtle evolution rather than a dramatic change in Washington’s stance toward the Brotherhood, a group founded in 1928 that seeks to promote its conservative vision of Islam in society.
Under the previous policy, U.S. diplomats were allowed to deal with Brotherhood members of parliament who had won seats as independents — a diplomatic fiction that allowed them to keep lines of communication open.
Where U.S. diplomats previously dealt only with group members in their role as parliamentarians, a policy the official said had been in place since 2006, they will now deal directly with low-level Brotherhood party officials.
There is no U.S. legal prohibition against dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood itself, which long ago renounced violence as a means to achieve political change in Egypt and which is not regarded by Washington as a foreign terrorist organization.
But other sympathetic groups, such as Hamas, which identifies the Brotherhood as its spiritual guide, have not disavowed violence against the state of Israel.
The result has been a dilemma for the Obama administration. Former officials and analysts said it has little choice but to engage the Brotherhood directly, given its political prominence after the February 11 downfall of former President Hosni Mubarak.
STIRRING UP DEMONS
U.S. President Barack Obama will surely face criticism for engaging with the Brotherhood, even tentatively.
Howard Kohr, executive director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, made clear the pro-Israel group’s deep skepticism about the group in a speech last month.
“While we all hope that Egypt emerges from its current political transition with a functioning, Western-oriented democracy, the fact is the best-organized political force in Egypt today is the Muslim Brotherhood — which does not recognize Israel,” Kohr said.
Former U.S. diplomats said the United States had to engage with the Brotherhood given its influence in Egypt.
“We cannot have a free and fair election and democracy unless we are going to be willing to talk to all the people that are a part of that democracy,” said Edward Walker, a former U.S. ambassador to Egypt and Israel who now teaches at Hamilton College.
“It’s going to stir up demons,” he added. “You have got an awful lot of people who are not very happy with what the roots of the Brotherhood have spawned … There will be people who will not accept that the Brotherhood is of a new or different character today.”
Egypt’s parliamentary elections are scheduled for September and its military rulers have promised to hold a presidential vote by the end of the year.
DIPLOMATIC FIG LEAF
U.S. dealings with the Brotherhood have evolved over time and officials have found ways to keep lines open under the cover of one diplomatic fig leaf or another.
“We have not had contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood,” then Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in response to a question at the American University in Cairo in June 2005. “We have not engaged the Muslim Brotherhood and … we won’t.”
The reality is more complex.
In the 1980s, U.S. diplomats had open dealings, visiting the group’s Cairo headquarters to call on members, including the Brotherhood’s supreme guide, according to the text of a May 2008 speech by Francis Ricciardone, a former U.S. ambassador to Egypt who is now the U.S. ambassador to Turkey.
By 1994, when Walker became U.S. ambassador in Cairo, he said the policy was to avoid direct contacts and to deal with trade unionists or other prominent figures who happened to be members of the group.
This gave Washington a way to keep tabs on the Brotherhood’s thinking without antagonizing those who opposed such contacts or the Mubarak regime, which maintained its status as a banned political organization and imprisoned many members — but also allowed it to run social welfare programs.
Despite his animus toward the group, Mubarak himself indirectly facilitated U.S. contacts by allowing its sympathizers to win seats in parliament as long as they ran as independents, handing Washington a justification for contacts.

Where are we headed in the next year. Our future is not looking very stable at this moment. We really have no idea what Mr. Obama wants or plans as far as the Middle East. We see him waiting and letting other countries take the lead, like Mr. Sarkozy in France. But we really do not know where Mr. Obama stands. We hear that we want democracy, but what is really manifesting in the Middle East?
When things began to go wrong for Mr. Mubarak in Egypt, Mr. Obama was quick to ask him to step down in the name of “democracy”. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that with the Muslim Brotherhood in charge, that is probably not Democracy that will wind up being established in Egypt.
In the Feb. 4, 2011 issue of the Jerusalem Post http://www.jpost.com/, we find that Hezbollah has taken control in Lebanon, and that Islamic Radicals are taking control in Tunisia. What are the Obama administrations plans in regard to Israel? Will we stand by Israel if those radicals decide that they are willing and able to destroy her?
With Gaddafi firing on his own people in Libya and the instability there, as well as other places, we find ourselves with little or no influence in the region. Saudia Arabia, Jordan, and many other area in Northern Africa and the Middle East are pretty much up for grabs. We don’t know if they are going to be able to retain control or not. With Saudia Arabia firing on protesters, the instability seems to be spreading everyday.
Where does that leave us in our imports of foreign oil? Will the Suez Canal and the Straits of Hormuz remain open? Or will someone unfriendly to the United States decide that it is in their best interest to deny us the use of them? What about our military base in Bahrain? And the aircraft carriers in the area? If the area becomes hotter that it is, what will Mr. Obama do?
Isn’t is about time that Mr. Obama tells the American people what his policy for the future is? It is nice, I suppose, that he can have a meeting on bullying in schools, but isn’t that something that really could be handled by the schools themselves? Do we really want Democracy in the Middle East? And if we do, how far are we willing to go to obtain it? Are we willing to go to war? Or is Rush Limbaugh right, that Mr. Obama is the “Spectator In Chief?”
Be careful what you wish for. After an ambiguous start, Western leaders have
broadly welcomed the wave of protest and revolutions sweeping North Africa
and parts of the Middle East. But beneath the words of encouragement about
people taking charge of their own destiny, there is a growing and vital
concern – the security of our oil and gas supplies.
The West’s complicity in supporting the autocratic regimes that characterise
many of the big oil-exporting nations is in part explained by the fact that,
whatever their sins, they did at least seem to provide stability in the
energy markets. That stability, however, has been thrown up in the air by
the wave of protest sweeping the region.
Initially, it was assumed that there was a difference between oil-poor Arab
nations such as Tunisia and Egypt, where the uprisings have been as much
about living standards as anything else, and the much richer Gulf states.
That theory was swiftly proved wrong.

The ignorance and arrogance of our President has put this country at the biggest risk we have been in since 9/11. If we were attacked at this moment, who would stand with us? Not Egypt!!! Not Saudia Arabia!!!! Even Israel must feel that we are not really looking out for the interest of our allies.
Do the people in the administration, and the President himself, even care that they are quickly becoming thought of as worse than Jimmy Carter. Even Mr. Carter was not so arrogant that he felt that he could tell leaders of other countries that they were irrelevant. The man that stood so tall a couple of years ago is quickly becoming the smallest man in the world.
When you have no concept of empathy, I guess it is hard to understand that everyone else might not agree with you and that you are not the only one who counts. The way the Mr. Obama has handled the Egyptian crisis is stunning in it’s lack of understanding and it’s betrayal of allies.This arrogance on the part of Obama is angering our allies and empowering our enemies.
You have to wonder at the intelligence of our leaders, as well as the intelligence that we are getting from our CIA and State Department. Are they not really aware of the state of affairs in the area, or are they just not listening. We have seen this arrogance on the part of the Obama administration before, when they were so determined to ram healthcare through, that they ignored the will of the people.
It’s amazing that the very man that was supposed to be the one that would be able to understand the middles east, because he had lived there as a child, has actually angered and betrayed our allies. I wonder if Mr. Obama really understands the fact that, instead of fostering democracy, all he has done is angered the leaders and fostered even more turmoil. Is he going to take any responsibility for the increased violence?
When you add in the way they are actively cutting our security on the border, shutting down drilling for oil, gas, and mining, you really do have to ask, what is the real agenda of this administration? Are they really so ignorant? Are they really so arrogant that they can’t accept that they are not smarter that the rest of the people in the country, and the world? Or do they not care?
Instead of having a strong leader in Mr. Obama, we have wound up with a joker and a fool, that is mocked and ridiculed, by both our enemies and our allies. Instead of a leader that will bring this country back from the brink of economic disaster, we have a weak man that is unable to concentrate on even one thing at a time, much less, walk and chew gum at the same time.
Instead of a man that understands the plight of the poor and downtrodden, we have a man that is grinding them underfoot, and increasing the prices that they have to pay for everything that they need. Instead of a leader who is cares about the environment of the country, and the world, we have a man that is putting in place polices that so anger average Americans, that they have less energy, time, and even hope, for the future, that they are wondering if the concern for the environment is just a scam.
