Obama waffled on the OBL mission

An insider “leak” long and detailed enough to be at least somewhat credible portrays Obama’s dithering over the OBL raid. How did Obama suddenly become a decisive leader? True to form, Obama waffled for weeks. Allied with Valerie Jarrett, Obama couldn’t bring himself to give the go-ahead to Panetta and the CIA which had developed the plan and had been urging the action for weeks.

Clinton, Petraeus, and Gates were solidly behind the plan and Gates even threatened to retire sooner than planned. I wondered why Clinton looked like the cat that swallowed the canary. She had to know the true story would out. She’s looking good. Panetta was beaming. Credit where credit is due. Leading from behind, indeed.

Superman Could Have Change of Heart About Renouncing Citizenship

This morning, we are hearing that DC Comics is seriously considering a major change in their plans for ‘Superman’ issue #900.

The Man of Steel may NOT be renouncing his American citizenship after all.

Last week we reported that DC Comics upcoming issue, Superman #900, was going to feature the Man of Steel renouncing his American citizenship.

That story sparked reactions, both positive and negative, all across America. It is fair to say that the overwhelming sentiment was against Superman losing his faith in America.

Salisbury City Council Walks All Over Freedom OF Religion

To protect the religious freedom of its constituents, the City Council has decided to open its legislative sessions with a moment of silent meditation, rather than the traditional Lord’s Prayer.

“We need to be mindful of the fact that we do this from the position of government officials, and law cases have very definitively stated we are not to promote religion over secularism, secularism over religion, or one religion over another,” said Council President Terry Cohen at this week’s six-and-a-half-hour work session.

The council considered several options, including removing prayer completely, reciting a prayer not exclusive to a particular deity and implementing a rotation in which each meeting is opened by a resident representing a different religion.

A 2008 opinion written by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor factored into the council’s decision, as the ruling states “the restriction that prayers be nonsectarian in nature is designed to make the prayers accessible to people who come from a variety of backgrounds, not to exclude or disparage a particular faith.”

City Clerk Brenda Colgrove polled 30 Maryland municipalities regarding their religious practices. Of those, nine recite a verbal prayer, seven recite the Pledge of Allegiance and observe a moment of silence, and 14 do nothing.

Councilwoman Laura Mitchell first suggested the moment of silence at an April 19 work session, and said Monday that it’s the best way to be equitable, respectful and legal.

“For me, prayer is very private and a silent prayer is a way I can worship the way I choose without forcing that on anyone else,” she said.

Councilwoman Shanie Shields staunchly opposed removing verbal prayer, stating the rotation of different faiths would be best.

“I don’t care what other cities do, or what the Constitution says, because sometimes that’s wrong,” she said. “We talk about crime, the economic situation of our people, children getting into trouble in school — the city needs prayer.”

Hedegaard Show Trial in Denmark

The press release from the Danish Free Press Society summarizes Hedegaard’s setback, and his determination to fight on as an example for all who cherish free speech, and refuse to accept the barbaric misogyny of totalitarian Islam. Our founding President, George Washington elucidated the stakes quite well: “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”

President of the Free Press Society, Lars Hedegaard, declared guilty of racist statements

Lars Hedegaard was today found guilty of hate speech under Article 266b of the Danish penal code. The background is a good 35 minutes long interview to the site snaphanen.dk which Hedegaard gave in December 2009.

Here Hedegaard said, among other things, that “girls in Muslim families are raped by their uncles, their cousins or their dad.” Lars Hedegaard has previously expressed regret if his statements gave the impression that he would accuse all Muslims of abusing their children. The day after the interview he stressed that his opinions were about Islam and not Muslims.

In January Hedegaard was acquitted of racist statements in the lower court of Frederiksberg. The court believed that his statements were insulting, but the case was dismissed because he did not know that the interview, which took place during a Christmas lunch, would be published.

The prosecutor appealed the verdict to the Eastern Regional Court, which today claimed that Hedegaard knew his statements would be published.

He is therefore declared guilty of racist statements.

Lars Hedegaard is sentenced to a fine of DKK 5,000 (approximately $1000).

Lars Hedegaard states: “The real losers today are freedom of speech and Muslim women. How can we speak up for them if we risk getting a state sanctioned label of racism?”

Lars Hedegaard will appeal the verdict.

§ 266b of the Danish penal code:

“Whoever publicly or with the intent of public dissemination issues a pronouncement or other communication by which a group of persons are threatened, insulted or denigrated due to their race, skin colour, national or ethnic origin, religion or sexual orientation is liable to a fine or incarceration for up to two years.”

UN Calls US to the Principal’s Office

Uh oh .. here comes the United Nations, a worthless excuse for an international organization whose primary goal is to redistribute wealth around the world. But the United Nations top human rights official called on the United States yesterday to provide the U.N. with full details of Osama’s killing to ensure that we complied with international law.

Does Obama have the guts to tell the UN to go screw itself? No … I mean that; literally. The United Nations has no standing whatsoever to demand any details of this raid from the United States.

The insipid United Nations can take its international law and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine. The United Nations is not one to talk when it comes to human rights abuses .. we are talking about an organization that put Sudan and Libya on its human rights council – and Syria will probably soon be added. Osama bin Laden is responsible for the murder of thousands of Americans and was the most wanted terrorist throughout the world. We found him and we took care of it. We even gave him a proper burial. Now what exactly is the problem here?

The Osama Bump

Here’s a note for the Obama administration, or any administration that follows: If you are going to release a story as huge as the killing of the most wanted terrorist in the world, you might want to consider having your story straight before you go to press. It’s been three days now since Osama had-bin Laden was killed and at the end of the day, the fact remains that this murdering Islamic POS is lobster food. But exactly how he became food for the bottom-dwellers of the ocean has become less clear. The administration’s story has changed: at first he resisted with fire fight, now we are told he was unarmed; at first he used his wife as a shield, now we are told that the woman wasn’t his wife; at first we were told that the woman was killed, now we are told that she was shot but not killed. Then we were told that OBL was virtually throwing women at the Navy Seals during the firefight. If there was one thing that could kill Obama’s mojo coming off of this event, it is uncertainty over which story of the raid is correct and what actually happened. Not that I am all that concerned with Obama’s mojo … but we are still coming to find how Bin Laden’s death will affect PrezBo in the polls. According to Politico:

President Obama’s approval rating has jumped to 56 percent, a 9-point increase, in the days after he announced Osama bin Laden had been killed, according to a Washington Post/Pew Research Center poll.

On his handling of Afghanistan, 60 percent of people said they approved; the number was a career high of 69 percent for the threat of terrorism. His numbers on the economy, though, have barely changed.

Gallup polling wanted to find out who the America public views as being responsible for the killing of Osama bin Laden. In other words … who deserves the credit for killing the Islamic menace.

When Americans are asked how much credit they would give to Barack Obama, George W. Bush, the CIA, and the U.S. military for finding and killing bin Laden, the U.S. military and the CIA emerge as the big winners in the public’s eyes. Nearly 9 of 10 (89%) say the military deserves “a great deal of credit,” while 62% say the same about the CIA.

Americans are more reserved in giving credit to President Obama. Thirty-five percent say he deserves a great deal of credit and another 36% say he deserves “a moderate amount” of credit. More than a quarter say he does not deserve much or any credit at all.

You can bet that the ObamaMedia will milk this like story as if it had 80,000 teats. News reports like this one from Lawrence O’Donnell: “Thank God Barack Obama is president.” But no matter how long the ObamaMedia tries to draw it out, the voters in 2012 will be voting with their pocketbooks … and the death of Osama bin Laden has done nothing to generate economic prosperity or to lower gas prices.
