Kincaid: Media Bias Designed to Save Obama’s Presidency

By Cliff Kincaid

The constant refrain from the media that the “anti-Islam” film somehow “triggered” or “sparked” the violence in Libya, Egypt and other countries is a transparent lie that follows the Obama Administration’s attempt to divert attention away from the fact that the “Arab Spring” promoted by Obama has been a complete failure for U.S. interests. Media bias is to be expected, especially during a foreign policy debacle that threatens Obama’s perceived expertise in foreign policy.

Our media understand that, in the same way that Jimmy Carter lost Iran and America was humiliated during the Iranian hostage crisis, there is a danger that Obama will be perceived to have lost Egypt to the Muslim Brotherhood, as violent demonstrations continue in the Middle East and other Arab/Muslim areas of the world. Hence, attention is being directed to a film that has been on the Internet since July. It is a diversion intended to save Obama’s presidency.

What is particularly interesting is how Senator John McCain is now disputing the claim that the attack in Libya which killed four Americans was spontaneous. McCain endorsed Obama’s policy of military intervention in Libya, without the consent of Congress, but now seems to be backing away from it, at least in terms of what happened in Libya on 9/11. He said, in the wake of the murders of the Americans, that “most people don’t bring rocket propelled grenades and heavy weapons to a demonstration,” and that it was a preplanned terrorist attack. It was another good McCain sound bite but begs the question of what these terrorists are doing in Libya in the first place, and why McCain backed Obama’s policy of military intervention there.

McCain should be asked by the media if he also intends to review his criticism of the conservative members of the House of Representatives who raised concern about Muslim Brotherhood influence in the Obama Administration. McCain had defended Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, against charges that she was too close to the Muslim Brotherhood. McCain became a media hero for standing up for Abedin and against people like Rep. Michele Bachmann. Dana Milbank of The Washington Post actually said in print that Abedin helped her boss with suits and handbags and logistics and had no influence over policy. It was “McCarthyism” to suggest otherwise, he wrote.

Yet, it is significant that Hillary Clinton has been leading the charge against the film, rather than take responsibility for the lack of security in Benghazi, Libya, where the murders of the Americans occurred. Clinton denounced the film and federal authorities directed the apprehension of the filmmaker, using the pretext that he was wanted for questioning about unrelated legal matters. This unprecedented attack on the First Amendment right of free speech demonstrates the Muslim Brotherhood influence over the State Department that Bachmann and other members of the House had warned about. The Muslim Brotherhood regards any critical depiction of Islam’s prophet Muhammad as blasphemy that must be suppressed.

In effect, our own federal government, supposedly committed to protecting our constitution, has sided with Sharia, or Islamic law, which prohibits insulting the prophet.

If Abedin is not a factor behind this policy, who is? The answer, of course, is the President himself, who knows exactly what he is doing. Whereas we have no access to Abedin’s security clearance form 86, which should have disclosed her foreign connections, Obama was never required to fill one out.

But this is more than a political ploy by the media to protect Obama. The coordinated attack on the First Amendment threatens the lives of Americans who dare to criticize Islam and organize to expose Muslim Brotherhood operations on U.S. soil. Coptic Christian Joseph Nassralla, who has been falsely linked in media reports to the content of the film, tells Pamela Geller: “There has been a campaign of disinformation and smears about the film ‘Innocence of Muslims’ and my involvement in it. I have been forced to leave my home, and I have received numerous death threats. It grieves me that my intent was to call attention to the relentless, bloody persecution of the Copts, but that issue is of no interest to the media at all.”

Despite the media bias, it should be clear to anyone paying even casual attention that Obama has lost Egypt and is now in danger of losing Libya to the Islamists. The only legitimate debate is whether this outcome is accidental or planned. Such a debate, which will only be held if Republicans acquire some testosterone, could turn the presidential campaign in Romney’s favor in the same way that Jimmy Carter was unable to recover from the effects of a bad economy and a disastrous foreign policy, resulting in Ronald Reagan coasting to victory.

The hysterical media attacks on the filmmaker reflect media desperation that voters may come to associate the anti-American violence with Obama’s policy of appeasing the Arab/Muslim world. The voters know very little about how Obama has deliberately and consciously assisted the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt and that this is the group that has spawned anti-American terrorism around the world. Andrew McCarthy’s new book, Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy, documents how there never was an “Arab Spring” but a Pandora’s box that contains the seeds of the destruction of America and the West.

Egypt is lost, despite claims by Wolf Blitzer and others on CNN that Obama has somehow made the Muslim Brotherhood government see the light about the need to protect American interests. There is a “government” in place in Libya, and its officials have directly contradicted the Obama Administration’s claims about the “spontaneous” nature of the anti-American violence. This violence, however, demonstrates that the Libyan government either has no power or control over the country or is unwilling to confront the Islamists. Under these circumstances, it is only a matter of time before the terrorists are in complete control and eventually take power there officially, just as they have in Egypt.

In fact, there are reports that Libyan security forces have been infiltrated by the terrorists. Official Libyan statements about the preplanned nature of the assault on the U.S. consulate on 9/11 may be seen, therefore, as a cry for help. Instead, however, Hillary and Obama have decided to beat up a filmmaker. Again, this is a complete diversion from a policy that is delivering major governments of the Arab/Muslim world into the hands of those who gave us al-Qaeda and 9/11.

McCain himself has a lot to answer for. He said, at a press conference in Benghazi, Libya, on April 22: “I have met with these brave fighters, and they are not al-Qaeda. To the contrary: They are Libyan patriots who want to liberate their nation. We should help them do it.” This statement was made in the very place where the terrorists destroyed the U.S. Consulate and killed the Ambassador.

At the time of Obama’s intervention in Libya, which was both illegal and unconstitutional, there were numerous reports of al-Qaeda activity in the country. But Republicans in Congress, led by McCain in the Senate, did not want to hold Obama accountable.

Andrew Bostom, the author of the highly acclaimed The Legacy of Jihad: Islamic Holy War and the Fate of Non-Muslims, was interviewed on America’s Morning News on September 17 and expressed disgust that the media are letting McCain get away with escaping his own responsibility for what has happened there. “He was one of the evangelists for this utterly failed policy, particularly in Libya,” Bostom noted.

This bipartisan nature of the failure, in the sense that McCain’s fingerprints are all over it, is why some conservatives are fearful that the Republicans don’t have the willingness to go after Obama’s record of foreign policy failure.

One thing is certain: the demonstrations will continue, and more Americans will have to go into hiding because of death threats from adherents of the “religion of peace.”

Our media could help stop this catastrophe, but they would prefer to save Obama’s presidency.

    The government is lying about this issue and the media is helping to cover up the real issue .. they are lying about inflation being low to non-existent and the media is complicit .. they lie about how money can be double counted in their Obamacare budgeting (and even though pointed out by MANY and non-partisans .. they stick to the lie) .. it goes on and on.

    The media is ridiculously bent .. so much so, I feel like I am living in Germany’s Propoganda Machine during the time of Hitler (and people will not believe what they should be able to see with their own eyes, but believe this administration and media.) I can tell you that virtually everything from the bars of soap I buy, to the dog food, and about everything in between has gone up substantially by holding the price fairly steady yet decreasing the package size. I believe we are in an inflationary time of somewhere between 12%- 20+% .. and the MSM wants to know the specifics about Obama’s beer recipe.

    Yep, if the lie is told over and over, in time it must be the truth! That was a cornerstone of the Nazi propaganda machine during the run up to WWII.

    The media is the lap dog for Obummer and his Nazi machine from Chicago. Truth is what they tell us it is….not what we think, but what we are told.

    The lies must be exposed by all means available. If we do not speak out and expose the current lies then they have already won.

      The media helped put him in office, have sung his praises and refused to report anything that might put him in a bad light, and now they MUST defend him because if they don’t they will be admitting their own failure. It’s sort of like throwing good money after bad with the hope that something can be salvaged. Any failure of Obama is a failure of the media, and they refuse to admit failure, choosing instead to blame it on someone else.

      If Obama is defeated the media will go down in flames so they will do whatever it takes to make certain that Obama is re-elected.

      Stay focused folks. The ‘MSM’ is not some vague entity all by itself that lives and breathes on it’s own.

      Corporations own the MSM and the – CHAIRMEN/CEO’s – of those corporations are the ones who have a specific vested interest in Obama succeeding himself as POTUS and therefore dictate the content and bias delivered by their talking heads/employees.

      Determine who owns what in the MSM and find a way turn your attention to the puppet masters behind the scenes and how to get THEIR attention! Perhaps a massive, coordinated email attack.

      @bobinms: Yes, they are absolutely violating what the public ‘perceives’ as trust and the press’s responsibility to public service need to know information. But alas, ‘perception’ don’t make it so.

      No, they are not violating the Constitutional right to a free press. They’re flagrantly abusing that right but, not violating it.

      In the long run they may destroy themselves as we know them, only to emerge as something different. But hey, maybe that’s the transformation we’ve been slowly witnessing for about 3 decades.

      No, they won’t lose the Constitutional protection that helps maintain the illusion of a responsible free press. That would interfere with the puppet masters’s agenda.

    The media is the spawn of liberal colleges who spoon feed them this dishonest philosophy from day one. They actually believe that they are important and above reproach and we are ignorant and in need of their wisdom. So, they pick and choose which news is “necessary,” and that is what they report. When they can’t completely ignore something they think we don’t “need” to know, they massage and twist the story to reflect their own biases. In general, people don’t check the facts, they just follow along like sheep because, for some reason, they still believe if some self-inflated blow-hard says it on TV, or writes it in the paper or reports it on the internet it has to be gospel. For the most part, the mainstream media is just a big propaganda machine, and the sad part is, THEY are too stupid to realize it.

    “The constant refrain from the media that the “anti-Islam” film somehow “triggered” or “sparked” the violence in Libya, Egypt and other countries is a transparent lie”

    To test this theory one would need to do a search of Youtube for any other derogatory videos, if none exist, theory fails. If others, then how many and how long have they been on Youtube

    Not to offend anyone’s sensibility but I searched for “F*ck Muhammad” obviously with the “u”

    Search results 2,040 with some being on Youtube for three years

    Conclusion “transparent lie” passes test

    We the people are not being served by a media which passes off such a view because it does not allow us to prepare for the next events and most likely outcome, more terrorist attacks.

If it wasn’t for Varney I would not go to Fox at all. Fox has now decided to honor us with giving opinions from both sides. They have started blessing us with Bob Beckel, Juan Williams, and Alan Colmes. *&^)@% if I want to watch them I will go to the other channels. And their women talk thru their noses.

      If there was no controversy, there wouldn’t be a discussion or debate…Fox News would just sound like any other “news program”. Hearing what the opposition stands for strengthens conservative truth. The shortcoming of the liberal agenda is that followers are ‘blinded’ to any opposing viewpoint. Thankfully, Fox News ‘fair & balanced’ approach at least allows viewers to understand the opposing arguments, something most other news outfits fail to achieve.

      I can deal with JUAN WILLIAMS. I kinda like him despite disagreeing with him 90% of the time. Alan Colmes is smirky and acts smarmy in addition to being a leftwing ideologue, and I don’t **like** people who SMIRK when they spout their propaganda and pose their condescending questions. I prefer not to subject myself to listening to Colmes.

      FOX **is** fair and balanced, giving fair air-time to the Left also. But BECAUSE it, FOX, gives equal time ALSO to the Conservative Side, Liberals absolutely SPEW NON-STOP VENOM at FOX on their websites and Blogs.
      This PROVES that they do NOT WANT “both sides” to be heard.
      They don’t CARE that Fox grants equal time to the LEFT.
      They are ENRAGED because it doesn’t grant EXCLUSIVE TIME
      to the Left, and for THAT REASON, they VILIFY FOX NEWS.

      Conclusion:
      at heart, “Liberals” are TYRANTS.

      Another conclusion,
      a book written pre-1900 by Catholic Priest
      Felix Salvana y Sardy (hope I spelled it correctly), had a very apropos title,
      namely,
      LIBERALISM IS A SIN.
      For Liberalism, apart from advocating for workers and the needy, which is fine, but done as a mask for it’s true and nefarious aims, — is not merely about helping people.
      It is ABOUT denying the revealed truths of, and moral commands of, God Almighty. UNLESS they feel-like obeying a particular divine command. If they DON’T “feel like” obeying that command, then it has to GO,
      and those who wish to continue to uphold it,
      are “Right Wing” or “Hate Mongers” or “Bigots” or “–phobes” of whatever sort.
      Liberal-ISM is evil.
      (( the book named above, though, is sometimes sold under
      the title, What is Liberalism? )).

This is at least one of the reasons a military mission like this does not end with public high fives and a government supported movie about the operation . It is far to personal to the other side , to be acceptable , since the action was directed at only one person .

    I have to wonder what with all the Muslim Brotherhood members inside of the government in levels that should require a back ground check for security reasons alone, Not one of these people that Obama has placed inside of Homeland Security, the White House and the office of the Secretary of States office. Not only that but he did their bidding to advance their power base in the Middle East,using our troops and funds to make their take over of the region easy. So far several new discoveries have popped out like when all the CIA’s agents in the Middle East were named, hunted down and killed, and now the secret Consulate safe houses location.
    Ambassadors put in place by the Obama administration that refused to let the marines carry loaded weapons. Sort of setting things up to make it easy to perpetrate an Ala Mogadishu style event and then Both He and Hillary come out blaming some one else, making excuses for the Attackers. Obama is a driving force for the Muslim Brotherhood

      To bizzybuzzer:
      It’s interesting that you call the film a SCAM.
      VERY interesting.

      Because I have heard it suggested that this film may be a deliberate provocation, made for that purpose, by
      an “AGENT PROVACATEUR.” A.P.’s are real, they are not just fictional characters in James Bond 007 films.

      The film **may** have been made, on purpose, to be as vile as it is, DELIBERATELY to provoke violence against the innocent,
      for the purpose of US panicking and calling for the stripping of large chunks of free-speech rights.
      Knowing that our nation’s super-wealthy elites are, in fact, Godless, and that their ancestors financed the rise of both Boshevism in Russia and Nazi-ism in Germany,
      I would not at all be surprised
      if we were to find out
      that THAT is indeed the case
      with this “film.”

      I further suspect this,
      because, quallity wise, this “film” is pure c-r-a-p.
      It’s poorly-acted and looks like a cheap video,
      not a professionally-scripted, carefully directed work of art.
      It looks like it was thrown together quickly without much
      true artistic effort. It’s garbage and LOOKS like garbage.

    The biggest reason no one wants to stand up against Obama, on or off the record, is for one reason and one reason only….race. I’m sure we have all worked with someone who got a job because of EEOC requirements, whether or not they were truly qualified and competent, they were hired to fill a quota. And try to fire someone with those protections and every time someone will throw out the race card and that person will still be employed and doing a lousy job while destroying morale. No matter what you say or how many discussions you have with anyone who leans to the left about Obama, you will encounter hateful, vile responses and when they can’t convince a conservative on some point with “facts” then they will call you a racist. And the conservatives won’t say anything after a while for fear of being labeled as such. “Incompetent” comes in all colors but no one accepts that as fact. Being labeled as a racist will destroy your career and any credibility you had or ever hoped to have. Truth is the majority of people who voted for Obama and who will vote for him again are doing so because of his race as some sort of “reparation” that none of us owe. If Obama were white you can bet your next 10 years of income his incompetent, lying butt would be out that door on November 6 without a second thought.

      This is why it needs to be pointed out that, strictly speaking, the president is not a fully “African American” person. One rather rude button, years ago, used to read,
      “Half Honkey, All Donkey.” A nasty way of putting it,
      but half his family tree is whiter than my fanny. Granddad Stanley was also allegedly a “Company” man, which is why I find his sending of his young impressionable daughter, the prez’s mom, to the only communist led academy in Washington State, to be truly baffling. Why would a government officer do that? And then introduce his impressionable young grandson to the leader of the CPUSA in Hawaii? Why in God’s name would a grandparent do that to his daughter and grandson? I don’t get it.

      But as for the “race” card, the Left is very lucky that our president HAPPENED to be born with Dark Skin. Genetically, with half his family tree White Folks, he could just have easily been born white with blond hair and blue eyes,
      but the Dems wouldn’t be able to capitalize on THAT,
      now would they?
      Peace to all of you.

      I also believe that another valid reason why no one will stand up to Obama is because of his radical associations. He has several known radicals as friends and has been involved with criminals who are now doing time. He is a product of the Chicago political regime and has proven that he will go after anyone who speaks out against him.

      True racism is considering color at all. Quotas are racist and insulting to people of color. Basically it’s saying, “You are not good enough to succeed without the help of white people.” It reminds me of how adults “let their kids win” while playing games with them. At some point the child realizes they are being pandered to, and they are either insulted to be treated in such a condescending manner, or they grow up to expect that someone else will always put them in first place, whether they earn it or not. When the minority becomes the majority will there be quotas for whites? And, if you are white, how would that make you feel?

    These embassy attacks, rapes, murders and riots ***were*** pre-planned and were NOT caused by that movie.
    They, the terrorists, ARE using it as a pretext for violence.

    HOWEVER, I saw that film, and it is not a matter of free speech, really. You are not allowed, despite free speech, to yell “FIRE !” in a crowded movie theatre.
    We all know the horrendously incendiary temperament of a large number of the citizens of the Muslim world. Whatever your views of Muhammad, and my view of him is NOT favorable, you don’t make a FILTHY movie about a religious leader who is PERCEIVED (rightly or wrongly) by 1-1/2 billion people to be a SAINTLY person. If you want to disabuse their minds of this errorneous notion, you discuss, not openly MOCK, the person in question.

    THIS film was, I truly believe, the equivalent of yelling FIRE! in a crowded theatre. The “Prophet” is portrayed as an American-looking, hippie-type young man. In one scene, he is told to go inside the tent where his pregnant and much-older-looking wife is, and that he will “see” his child. So he goes into the tent. He is wearing a robe, much like a monk or Christ would wear. He plops down on the floor, legs open. His bossy wife GRIPES to him that he isn’t wearning any underpants and therefore to “cover himself.” So he embarassedly, and obediently, closes his legs.
    She then sits on what appears to be some kind of high-chair type thing and OPENS HER LEGS WIDE and tells him to crawl over to her and “see” his child (which is up inside her womb). Like a petulant little boy, the “Prophet” crawls over and plants his head between her wide-open legs, she grasps his head and mashes it against her privates and tells him to “see” his child. What it LOOKS LIKE is that he is performing cunnilingus on her.
    Someone whom billions revere as a “Prophet” of the Almighty.

    Folks, this is vulgar and filthy to the HILT, and you DO NOT portray revered figures like this, even if you don’t like them, especially when you know that the figure’s followers have a penchant for blowing their stacks at the slightest drop of a hat. This was a filthy portrayal. How does this film-maker seriously believe that such a filthy portrayal would HELP Egypt’s Coptic Christians, who have to live among this “Prophet’s” followers?! IS HE NUTS ?!
    This was disgusting, even to me, and I am a Christian.
    I loathe portrayals of Mary, mother of Jesus, covered with blobs of elephant dung. I loathe portrayals of the crucified Christ immersed in a glass of urine. Despicable. But Christians and Jews are not going to storm embassies and murder innocent people over these things. Because the Holy Spirit restrains us from doing so AND because our religions, while LOATHING blasphemy, teach us to have mercy on everyone, especially the innocent. OUR EMBASSY STAFF was INNOCENT.
    Islam teaches ferocious retribution for blasphemy, and this film-maker was not born yesterday. I cannot believe that he did not know that.
    The film, YOU ARE ALL CORRECT, did NOT provoke the attacks on our Embassies. But it was SINCE widely-publicized, and now it WILL be a cause of FURTHER attacks on our American people, on Christians in the Muslim world, and on our Jewish friends, too.
    The film-maker yelled FIRE! in a crowded movie theatre by making a piece like this. The fact that others have done so as well, does not make it right NOR a morally-responsible thing to have done.
    The film is *not* merely controversial, it is NASTY.
    Yes, the Administration is responsiblle for it’s horrendous foreign policy and the results of that awful
    policy. But “free speech” and “artistic license” are not valid excuses for endangering the safety of practically everyone in the world by infuriating billions of already VERY hot-headed people without it even being necessary to have done so.
    God love all of you.

      There are two things that will enrage Muslims: ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. Period. I saw the 13-minute clip of the film. Yes, very nasty. But so was “piss Christ”… and I don’t recall anyone being killed over it. If we bow to Islam regarding free speech, we will forfeit all of our rights eventually. Do a Google search of offending the prophet… there is a multitude of potential offenses that the Muslims can use… where would it end? Either the USA takes a stand, or our enemies will no longer fear any consequences, hence the current issues due mostly to the Obama Doctrine.

      P.S. Yes, unfortunately there are too many people who are grossly irresponsible, part of living in a free country. Peace to you too. :)

      To yomama,
      I agree with you ( I noted that in my post, too, as well as the reason: OUR religions, Judaism and Christianity, teach mercy on people, especially the innocent.) Islam’s teachers emphasize ferocious retributions for perceived insults against their faith and it’s “prophet”, and whip the people up into blood-lusting frenzies. My point is: the maker of this nasty movie most SURELY had to be aware of that. And in THAT light, making a film likely to incite already-incendiary people, was grossly irresponsible ).
      Peace to you, yomama !

      jaypeeto:
      My reply seems to have disappeared, so I’ll try it again. I respectfully have to disagree that making any kind of movie or artistic statement which offends the Muslim community must be avoided because of the resulting outrage, destruction, and killing which may occur. This kind of thinking merely plays into their hands. This is the essence of terrorism-it’s what they want us to think. This is why we can’t give in to this intimidation when it comes to the expression of free speech and artistic license. Remember when Salman Rushdie wrote “The Satanic Verses”? The Ayatollah Khomeini put a 5 million dollar bounty on his head and he had to go into hiding for about 10 years. However, the outrage in this case was restricted only to Rushdie, and no other Americans or anyone else was at risk. This movie was indeed a pretext, and since it came out in July, where was the outrage then? If we give in to this intimidation we are not only cowards, but as the saying goes, “the terrorists will have won.” And yomama, I see you pretty much said the same thing and you said it very well.

      I am not sure I agree with the “yelling FIRE in a crowded movie theater” analogy. That is something that could incite panic in a closed in arena .. and has to do with true SAFETY in a self-preservation ‘emergency’ mode.

      What happened in this youtube clip was nothing more than the same “freedom” question we have talked about for years. Ideas cannot hurt people unless they are so immature and insecure in their thoughts and logic they cannot take what others say or think. I have had this discussion many a time with others on various subjects. The “fact” that someone (individually or as a group) continually acts inappropriately (word not near strong enough here) is not an excuse to give in to them. It is not a good argument to say “oh, that is just the way they are so everyone else has to adapt to them.”

      I would be scared of a society that would take away freedoms from ANYONE to coddle to unreasonable (even though you might say expected) actions of someone else. I KNOW where that would end up .. and it is not a free society.

      To LAPhil,
      ahhh, yes, the lovely late AYATOLLAH KHOMEINI, who put a bounty on the head of Salman Rushdie.
      This is the same charming Khomeini who gave the orders to KIDNAP our Tehran Embassy staff, hold them prisoners and abuse them for 444 days. Such a “religious” gentleman.
      Isn’t it funny that the oh-so-”religious” regime in Tehran has, from the BEGINNING, sought alliances, FIRM alliances, with the world’s MOST anti-God regimes (Soviets, NORTH Korea, CUBA, now Chavez’s Venezuela). What is it about militant radical ISLAM that it finds SOUL-MATES in militant ATHEISTS?
      Why do Islamic people not ask these questions of their Imams and Mullahs as well? VERY interesting, I think. They claim to be sooooooooooooooo Godly, yet buddy up to open HATERS of Belief in God, and CHOOSE these haters as their CLOSEST allies. VERRRRRRRY interesting.

      And again, as for the charming and lovely Ayatollah Khomeini,
      the kidnapping thug,
      HIS spiritual heirs, the mullahs who rule his new Iran,
      have recently legalized Child Molesting, under another name of course. MARRIAGE.
      Yes, big hairy ugly men of even 45 and UP are now allowed by the religious-leaders-led Tehran Regime, to MARRY little 9 year old girls who don’t even have any PUBIC hair yet.
      UGGGGGGGGGGGGGH ! You can find on the internet, they have no shame, PHOTOS of these hairy ugly men, with their
      little younger-than-Lolita “WIVES”, tiny little girls,
      sitting on their disgusting laps.
      Makes a normal person want to vomit.
      Peace to you, LAPhil, and may God grant
      repentance to these weirdos.

      the allegedly “horrible, evil, vile” SHAH OF IRAN,
      who, the media constantly told us, “was a tyrant and just HAD to go” and a “rights abuser” and yada yada yada….
      the “horrible, evil” SHAH **never** allowed such things,
      and warned us in 1978 that if these freaks succeeded in overthrowing the Peacock Throne, they, led by Khomeini,
      WOULD step by step, take that country BACK to before the 13th Century.
      And he was right: they have done so.

      You are right about those psalms and what God will supernaturally do to those who oppress his worshipers.
      It isn’t funny, and the Godless in this and other nations have forgotten that. The reason for that is, as scripture says, “because wicked deeds are not punished IMMEDIATELY, the wicked believe that they will never be punished for their wickedness” (a slight paraphrase, and I forgot the chapter and verse, too, apologies).
      But we still have to GET OUT AND VOTE and we need also
      to support, financially, proFamily get-out-the-vote groups.
      God acts, but more often than not, ACTS THROUGH People. Direct miracles are comparatively rare or at least less-frequent than His acting THROUGH people. So we have to do OUR part. Otherwise, the Godless are going to win this, and all future, elections.
      And we don’t want to take TOO much comfort, or rather, become COMPLACENT against wickedness because of God’s promises.
      Remember, 95% of the Russian people were baptized Christians who had received the Holy Spirit of God. But in part because they meekly went-along with the Soviet takeover (for economic reasons largely–now where have we seen THAT before, in this country as well?) He, despite these comforting promises, allowed Godless Communism to ruthlessly rule the Christian nations of Eastern Europe and Russia for 8 decades.
      So,
      lesson here,
      Christians need to get off their Duffs and VOTE THE LEFT OUT.
      While they still CAN.
      Peace, friend.

    When I voiced my opinion of FoxNews above and my dislike of their putting on now the likes of: Bob Beckel, Juan Williams, and Alan Colmes a response came back that they are just trying to be fair and show both sides. I don’t want to hear both sides. That is why I used to go to FoxNews. I can get the others (liberals) opinions anywhere. Those three make me sick. They are hateful to the brink and the most liberal of all liberals. Fox is just wrong by doing this.

Guess I don’t mind Beckel so much, ‘cos he usually gets shut down by the others. And every once in a while he actually has to concede some of the ridiculousness of the liberals. I also don’t mind hearing some of the liberal stuff, at least it usually gets balanced out. But with ALL media, you still can’t take everything from Fox News as gospel.

    The news this morning now says that the attack on the embassy in Libyia was planned and the reason for it was to force the release in the USA of the blind Oman that was responsible for the bombing of the trade center in 1993. There were e-Mails released two days before the attack that were either ignored or discounted by our state department. The film was never the reason we lost four people including the ambassador. Secretary Clinton was too busy staying away from the DNC and other activities to even think ahead that 9/11 might be a day to beef up security in all of our embassies, especially in the middle east. The fumbled the ball and Ambassador Stevens and three Seals paid the price.

    As to the media, if it weren’t for FOX and talk radio, we would not be hearing much about any of the screw ups and utter incompetence of the Obama administration. There is no doubt that the entire entertainment industry, most newspapers, and network television has been infiltrated and taken over by those that for some stupid reasons want our country to become another “me too” socialist entitlement country. They have decided to go “all in” for one of the most inept, inexperienced President and his administration that are ruining our private economy and facilitating a takeover of our government at all levels by public service union thugs.

    The media are mainstream players who are helping facilitate the transformation of the country into an entitlement state where the majority of the American people are forced to survive through government subsidies which means that the government then controls their lives and dictates who gets this or that in the country. This is called communism or socialism and is responsible for why our ancestors left their homelands to be a part of a new country founded on freedom where the government worked for the people, not the opposite which is now happening in the USA. Our founders are turning over in their graves as they watch the demise of the greatest country that has ever existed in the history of the world.

    Thanks to every American who votes for socialists like Obama and the union thugs who are his ground troops across the country, and those Americans that have decided they want their lives to be based on how much free stuff they can get from those hardworking Americans that are taxed to pay for it. Thanks to the wealthy liberals who are funding the politicians and media that are helping this undermining of America happen. All of them should be in prison for treason.

    Sad state of affairs. Wake up America, we only have one play left to keep from losing the most important game in our lives….VOTE ROMNEY/RYAN in November.

      I made a mistake in that the attack on the Egyptian embassy was based on attempting to force the release of the blind Sheik and that the attack on the Lybian embassy was a pre-planned terrorist attack. Neither due to the film the state department is using as an excuse.

    First of all I would like to say that this article gives Obama entirely too much credit when it comes to promoting the Arab Spring, as the Revolution in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya were started by the people of the respective countries. Obama absolutely nothing to do with it, nor the outcome. In Libya, the revolutionary fighters were supported by NATO, of which the US is a member, and Obama decided to support NATO. The majority of NATO support for Libya came from France.

    Secondly, NATO pumped a lot of weapons into Libya, and now they are all just floating around, being bought and sold and smuggled to neighboring countries, and many through the Sinai to the border area of Israel and Palestine. There are not Islamic militants in Sinai, but weapons smugglers. The type of weapons in the Benghazi US Embassy attack are readily available in Libya.

    Third and most importantly, Obama has made some of the most dangerous foreign policy mistakes with Israel – Iran – Egypt in recent days. If there was ever a time he needed to see Egypt as an ally, it is now. Pres. Morsi of Egypt recently went to Iran to try and persuade Iran to drop their support of Assad in Syria, which is a very smart move I have to say. Meanwhile Obama has refused to meet the PM minister of Israel, and at the same time says Egypt is not an ally. This in response to some protests that are obviously “not” a reaction to a crudely made low budget film that has been around for months. He sure fell for the bait. The people protesting in Cario make up .0008% of the population of Cairo and do not represent the government or vast majority of the country. The whole incident is a movement of Al Qaeda to get Obama’s attention, as the only feather in the cap of Pres. Obama is OBL, which he proudly touts. He is talking much that he got OBL, and top Al Qaeda members. He says “GM is alive and OBL is dead.” Well all of this is Al Qaeda’s way of saying “Hey Obama, Al Qaeda is still alive.” I think Obama has cracked under pressure, and the media is not possible to form nor influence my opinion. Obama’s weak character and inability to handle pressure is very clear to me.

    But what is scary is the amount of influence the media has on large numbers of the population.
