Open thread for Wednesday September 12th

September 12, 2012

 Another Wednesday and another rush out the door on my way to work early forgetting to put up the open thread before I left so here it is. Because I have been working more hours I haven’t been able to comment as much on the blogs I visit daily although I am still trying to read all the fine articles, my apologies.

  I had a scary moment last night after updating my post entitled ‘The Middle East burns as Nero fiddles.’ (This post has been greatly overshadowed by my second post last night, so please check it out if you haven’t already.)  After the update WordPress suspended America’s Watchtower for about five minutes. Apparently by adding those extra links the blog was automatically flagged as spam and suspended–there are quite a few links in that post. I was so upset I was shaking as I saw almost six years of my work gone and not sure if or even when it would come back. I contacted WordPress and they immediately rectified the problem, so I would like to thank WordPress for their quick action on this issue.

  Have a great day everyone.

      Thanks for your concern Jim, it was nerve racking to say the least. Even though it was only a few minutes it felt like a long time.

    I imagine that “Big Brother” came to mind if only for a moment!

      My first thought was that a liberal reported me to WordPress to get back at me, but I knew I didn’t violate the TOS. I did think about the feds but I knew America’s Watchtower wasn’t nearly big enough to draw the attention of the government. Maybe someday, but not yet. 🙂

        You underestimate yourself!

        Or maybe I am underestimating the lengths the federal government would go to in order to shut down the opposition, but seeing as how I don’t trust them at all I don’t think that is the case.

    I am going to “Shoot first and aim later”, so bear with me here: Cound this have been stopped had Obama gone to an Intelligence Briefing after September 5th? I hear that he has made about 50% of the briefings. Even some Government officials have said this was planned and organized in advance. Wasn’t there a youtube video floating around about what was going to happen? Surely intelligence had some chatter! Where was the Marine Guard?
    Why would Obama not beef up security, especially with 9-11 coming up? Didn’t anyone think of MAYBE doing that? How much did the Libyan security force have to do with what happened? Is Hillary at fault here? Are there any adults running the show? I have questions and will probably not get the answers. So, we have dead Americans and alot of excuses? That is not good enough. Aren’t we supposed to have the best of the best in such important positions in our government? Where are they? Golfing? Fundraising? Partying in foreign countries? Damn them all for the lack of commitment they have shown during this administration. Replace them!

      I think Obama not attending the briefings could have played a role, at the interest of being self serving here, check out the post I wrote two before this one called “The Middle East burns as Nero fiddles” because I tried to tie this attack to his lack of briefings and to his claim he is too busy to talk to Netenyahou. It all ties together and makes you wonder if this is something he had in mind all along.

        On the other hand, with the hints that HE is not running the show anyway, would there be any reason for HIM to be at a briefing?

    Mark Levin just said he was told that the Marines would not have been posted at the Consulate as they are at Embassies…I wonder why? In a foreign country given how tense things are AND with 9-11 approaching, I think that might have been a reason to post them and change some rules. Makes you feel like going out of the country to travel doesn’t it?


    • September 12, 2012 8:45 pm

      I was wondering about this myself, it seems odd the Marines wouldn’t have been there but apparently they were not.

    Ok, I watched what is about 14 minutes of a movie trailer that is supposed to be what has caused the attacks (we are not supposed to consider that it was planned in advance), it was stupid and put together cheaply. My comment is that on a daily basis most of us are offended by someone, but most people use common sense and shrug it off. We do NOT attack in the name of, whatever your religion is. There is the difference. So, that is supposed to be a “religion of peace” and when offended, they attack? Make sense to you?


    • September 12, 2012 10:57 pm

      I have just put up a new post on these attacks and I do not believe the movie in question is what is behind these attacks, this was coordinated as retaliation for the drone killing of an Islamist leader and the warning signs were there but ignored by Obama. But even if the movie excuse is true, it does show up how primitive these people really are that the think it is justice to kill people who make a movie they do not agree with.

    I received an email with this attached, it was Snopes checked, so assuming it is fact checked. It is from a syndicated columnist and worth the read. He kind of sums things up:

    Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.

    The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

    The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

    I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

    I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Obama’s arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

    Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

    I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.

    I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent millions of dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

    And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

    I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

    Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

    It is my intention to do all within my ability to ensure their reign is one term. I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

    As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood… Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”
