Who is our REAL Enemy?

WARNING - GRAPHIC                                                        WARNING - GRAPHIC

Who is our real enemy? 

Turn on the news and watch CNN, MSNBC, ABC or any of the mainstream publications such as the Washington Post, New York Times or listen to National Public Radio.

They are completely vested in perpetuating the administration of Barack Obama and in furthering any lie, no matter how outrageous. Case in point: The attack of Jihadists on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11. 2012.

Barack Obama and his minions are so used to controlling the press that they seem to think they can get away with anything. Thus, the eruption of anti-American riots from Morocco to Pakistan, beginning on September 11, is chalked up to a spontaneous eruption of entirely understandable Muslim distress over an otherwise-unknown YouTube video. Never mind the RPGs and machine guns. And when an American ambassador is murdered and dragged through the streets of Benghazi by a howling mob, not to worry: there was no negligence in failing to provide security; the ambassador, Chris Stevens, died essentially by accident from smoke inhalation; and his body was discovered by a group of friendly Libyans who rushed him to the hospital. Sure. 
The main threat to the administration’s cover-up has never been American reporters, almost all of whom are desperately trying to get Obama re-elected. Rather, the danger is that more of the cell phone pictures and movies that were taken by Libyans of events in Benghazi and, in particular, of Ambassador Stevens, inevitably will surface, and will disrupt the administration’s narrative.  How dare the Libyans tell the truth of their murderous rampage?
That may be starting to happen. This cell phone video purports to show the moment when the Libyan mob discovers Ambassador Stevens. Is that really what it depicts? I can’t tell. The setting appears right, and says the victim’s clothing matches what is seen in later photos of Ambassador Stevens. I can’t judge that. But there is a sickening credibility to the poster’s claim that what we are seeing here is Ambassador Stevens being dragged from the “safe house” that turned out to be unsafe and, as far as I can tell, undefended. Here it is judge for yourself: (h/t Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs)

Libyan President Mohamed Magariaf spoke on CBS Face the Nation today (Sunday) supporting the position that Congressman Rogers (R-MI) and Senator McCain (R-AZ), saying he had “no doubt” the attack was pre-planned. “It was planned, definitely, it was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago, and they were planning this criminal act since their arrival.” 

This is sharply at odds with the official position held by the Obama Administration, to wit, that it was a spontaneous demonstration against an obscure YouTube video preview that almost nobody in America was aware of.
What Carney, and the Obama administration says is, that if we, as Americans, were only just a bit more sensitive to our Muslim brethren, they'd all love us and we'd all just get along. This is the old 1960s ideal, expressed in the John Lennon song Imagine. In effect, the leftist dogma says: "We will give up any and all of our principles in order to get along with the rest of the world." (Self Evident Truths)
If the Obama Administration's foreign policy is deeply flawed (and it is), only the mainstream media stands between the truth and results that they don't want to see in the upcoming presidential election - and by all accounts, it's a close race.

Imagine what loss of credibility that the Mainstream Media will suffer if a new Republican Administration takes office and begins to uncover what they have hidden from the American people for the last four years. The vanishing viewers on MSNBC and CNN will be reduced further still, eroding profits. So they further the lies and outright distortions with glee as Chris Matthews feels that old familiar tingle running up his leg.

Are You Better Off?

President Ronald Reagan asked the key question in 1980 and again in 1984 when he ran for re-election: Are you better off than you were four years ago?

While that is both a good litmus test and good politics, should the government make you rich, as President Obama suggests again and again or should the government's role be to free up private business to be as successful as they can be? The mainstream media attacks Governor Romney again and again because he created a company that found success in the private market by making money for his investors. In the parlance and cant of the media, that success is WRONG.
...They said: “Who has hate in his soul? Who has envied his neighbour?
Let him arise and control both that man and his labour.”
They said: “Who is eaten by sloth? Whose unthrift has destroyed him?
He shall levy a tribute from all because none have employed him.”
They said: “Who hath toiled, who hath striven, and gathered possession?
Let him be spoiled. He hath given full proof of transgression.”
They said: “Who is irked by the Law? Though we may not remove it.
If he lend us his aid in this raid, we will set him above it!
So the robber did judgment again upon such as displeased him,
The slayer, too, boasted his slain, and the judges released him...
               --Rudyard Kipling, The City of Brass (1909) 
What we see in the modern world is nothing new. It repeats again and again and we're caught up in this struggle between a socialist ideology espoused by the MSM and a capitalism. The philosophy which is promoted by the mainstream media in their obvious HATRED of Republican Governor Mitt Romney and their CHAMPION, Democratic President Barack Hussein Obama in this run-up to the 2012 election has nothing to do with whether or of you or the country is better off.

I don't know anyone who is better off today in the sense of the question, than they were four years ago. However, according to the poll I've taken:

BARACK OBAMA (POTUS): "If you're not, vote for me and you'll get government money! [which is free money]"
NANCY PELOSI (HOUSE): "Yes! [Unless you count my 13% paycut and confiscated jet]."
JOE BIDEN (VP): "I don't know but the Republicans want to chain up the coloreds and put them to work on a plantation somewhere."
HARRY REID (SENATE): "If you don't have to worry about a budget, you're always going to be better off -- thanks for the loans, China."
ERIC HOLDER (DOJ): "Sorry, that's covered under Executive Privilege."
KATHLEEN SEBELIUS (DHHS): " that those fetuses are out of the way."
KING SAMIR SHABAZZ (DNC Philidelphia Volunteer): "Die Honkey, Die!"
LISA JACKSON (EPA): "For everybody that counts [but energy companies don't count]."
CONGRESSIONAL BUDGETING OFFICE: "Only if you can't count."

According to the Census Bureau, income for the middle class fell 8 percent to its lowest level since 1995. The New York Times severely understates the case saying that this “poses a challenge” for Barack Obama as he vies for asecond term. According to the report, middle class income has fallen to a national average of $50,054 annually, close to what it was back in 1995. The Times finds this troublesome for the President.

Will Obama's Weakness Cause a War?

Last month, an Israeli "decision maker" — widely reported to be Defense Minister Ehud Barak — gave a revealing interview to the newspaper Haaretz in which he implied that Israel could not wait for America to act and might not be able to wait until next spring before taking matters into its own hands.

The tragic events in Cairo and Benghazi should remove doubt that the foreign policy of the current administration is the most destructive since that of Jimmy Carter. 
The only question at this point is whether that policy is, as with Carter, the result of incompetence and naivete — or something more disturbing. 
In other words, it may be time to ask whether the setbacks in Arab North Africa and elsewhere have been so numerous and unremitting that, rather than failures, they may be seen as consistent with the view of a president who thinks America is too rich and strong for the world's good. 
How else do you explain the apologies issued to the fanatics who killed our ambassador and burned our embassy, apologies that evoke those offered in a 2009 speech in Cairo by a just-seated president who blamed the hatred some in the Mideast have for the West on "colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims"? 
How else do you to explain the forsaking of a 30-year ally, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, for a Muslim Brotherhood billed as moderate but now shown to be potentially as fanatical as any government in the region? 
And how to explain the rejection of Israel, our only truly democratic ally in the region, which faces nuclear annihilation by Iran, but whose prime minister can't get an audience with the president because he's booked on the David Letterman show? (IBD)
The very last thing that America needs now is another destructive, expensive war. However, it's been a war of our own making to some extent. (see the great apologist below)
