Ex-IDF Official Claims Saudis Helped Put Obama in White House (VIDEO)


by rogueoperator
Not too long ago, someone with intelligence ties who reads this blog asked me what I thought about Obama’s Muslim connections. Although I have no axe to grind with anyone regarding his religious beliefs,per se, it is true that Obama was raised as a Muslim and his Christian affiliations are less than compelling. This IDF official makes some shocking claims, including the argument that the Saudis said they would get a Muslim in the White House in 2008, and the Egyptian Foreign Minister was told by Obama that he was a Muslim. I have no direct corroborative evidence for these claims, but they are worth vetting.

Obama’s Past Revealed

President Obama face WH photo SC Obamas Past Revealed
The late Andrew Breitbart said at the last CPAC that he has videos of Obama’s college days and that we’re going to vet him in 2012. On Wednesday night,,Hannity,BuzzFeed,and other media outlets were uploading and disseminating the video that showed a young Barack Obama telling members of the Harvard student body to “open your hearts and your minds to Professor Bell.”
Derrick Bell was a tenured professor at Harvard and the mind behind the “Critical Race Theory,”which hypothesized that discrimination against minorities is inherent in our legal system.  Obama called Bell the “Rosa Parks of legal education,”but further review shows this radical of academia as unhinged. Daniel Webb of Red Alert Politics states that Bell’s motto was to “harass white people.” His book Faces At The Bottom of The Well begins with:
“Even the poorest whites,those who must live their lives only a few levels above,gain their self-esteem gazing down on us. Surely,they must know that their deliverance depends on letting down their ropes. Only by working together is escape possible. Over time,many reach out,but most simply watch,mesmerized into maintaining their unspoken commitment to keeping us where we are,at whatever cost to them or to us.”
Bell has gone on to praise anti-semitic  Louis “Hitler was a very great man” Farrakhan and bashed the nomination of Clarence Thomas as a disservice to blacks.  He wrote a surreal short story called “The Space Traders”that depicted the selling of blacks to aliens in order to reduce the national debt.  John Nolte of BigJournalism writes that Jews,according to Bell in the story,would only assist blacks to ensure their survival. I guess most would blow it off with the whole notion of aliens,but Bell admitted that he wrote in fiction because his views were threatening:
“I find that my views have at least a better chance of being heard if I can place those views in the context of a fable,of a story. During the telling of which,or the reading of which,the individual is able to pull back to not feel threatened or involved.”
No wonder why Obama’s mentor,Charles Ogletree,“hid this throughout the 2008 campaign.” Bell even dismissed liberal whites as oppressors and unable to explain the realty of racism on America due to the color of their skin. Well,there goes the youth vote. In all,Professor Bell was an angry black man who believed the United States was “permanently racist.” Obama forced the radical ramblings of this man upon his “Current Issues in Racism and the Law”class in 1994. Since Bell had such a profound impact on our president,it probably explains why in 2010,one year before his death,he visited the White House twice for reasons we do not know.  I’m guessing he came to offer more “constructive”anecdotes about race in America.
Thanks to Breitbart and his crew,we are able to expose this radical influencer of Obama,which the Democrat-media complex would have whitewashed or buried four years ago.  Although some still try.

PALESTINIANS: Promised statehood if Obama is reelected

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — President Barack Obama has told the Palestinians to sit tight during a US election year, while holding out the promise of a serious push for Palestinian statehood if he wins a second term, the Palestinian foreign minister says.
A US State Department spokeswoman insisted Washington remains engaged, though US officials, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the diplomacy, said the peace process is bogged down and prospects for resuming even low-level exploratory talks are slim.
It may be politically risky for Abbas to be seen as just marking time until November.
The Palestinian public is increasingly impatient with deadlock on all fronts, and Abbas could score points by reconciling with his longtime rival Hamas. But an alliance with the Islamic militants, who seized control of the Gaza Strip from Abbas’ Palestinian Authority in 2007, could upset the US and hurt a statehood bid later. Israel has already warned that it won’t negotiate a statehood deal if Abbas forges a coalition with an unreformed Hamas.
For now, Abbas appears to have his hands full just keeping the Palestinian issue from fading away — or being steamrolled by internal American politics.
The Palestinians have watched in dismay as Republican candidates, eager to please Jewish donors and voters, appeared to compete over who is more pro-Israel: At one point Newt Gingrich, backed financially by an ardently Zionist Jewish billionaire, called the Palestinians “an invented people.” Obama himself struck what was perceived as a pro-Israel tone in recent weeks.
The challenge goes beyond the US election. The Palestinians’ traditional Arab allies are preoccupied with the Arab Spring uprisings transforming the region. Europe is struggling with a painful euro zone crisis. And there is mounting concern about a possible Israel-Iran war over Tehran’s suspected attempts to obtain nuclear weapons.
The Iran issue dominated the White House meeting between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week, serving as a reminder to the Palestinians that the world has little time for them right now.
The Palestinians knew what they were in for as the US headed into the campaign, Riad Malki, the Palestinian foreign minister, said in a Friday interview.
“Everybody was telling us, including the Americans, ‘don’t expect that much from us during the election year because the president will be focusing on how to be re-elected, and in order to do so, he should really shift his attention … to other issues,’” Malki said.
Asked whether Abbas holds out hope that Obama — if re-elected and freed from some of his domestic political shackles — will push hard for serious negotiations on Palestinian statehood, Malki said: “They (the Americans) told us so.”
He said the Obama administration asked Abbas to be patient until then.
State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland said Friday that “we completely reject that characterization both of our views and the message” to Palestinians and Israelis.
On Monday, the Quartet of Mideast mediators — the US, the European Union, the UN and Russia — will meet in New York to review peace efforts, but is not expected to issue a statement or come up with a new initiative.
During more than three years in office, Obama failed to restart negotiations that broke off in 2008. At the time, Abbas and Netanyahu’s predecessor, Ehud Olmert, exchanged initial border proposals, but ultimately failed to close the gaps before Olmert stepped down amid corruption allegations.
Abbas says he will only negotiate with Netanyahu if Israel freezes settlement building on occupied lands and recognizes the pre-1967 war lines as the starting point for talks on the borders of a future Palestine. In that war, Israel captured the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, the territories the Palestinians want for their state.
Netanyahu insists all disputes be addressed in negotiations, including settlements.
As a next move, Abbas plans to send a letter to Netanyahu in coming days, holding the Israeli prime minister responsible for the failure to relaunch serious negotiations, Malki said. Copies of the letter will be sent to foreign leaders and Mideast mediators.
Palestinian officials said the letters are a cry for attention. “It’s a loud shout, to say we cannot continue like this,” said Wasel Abu Yousef of the PLO Executive Committee.
Malki said the letter will not contain a deadline for an Israeli response.
Earlier this week, Jordan’s foreign minister urged Abbas to avoid language that could be seen as an ultimatum, a Palestinian official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss internal discussions.
Abbas and his aides will meet after a certain period to review Israel’s response to the letter, if there is one, Malki said. “It is up to us to decide later how to proceed … based on the reaction from the Israeli leadership and based on the international community’s reaction to that,” he said.
The options include reviving last year’s stalled attempt to win full UN membership through the Security Council or seeking the UN General Assembly’s recognition of Palestine as a non-member observer state, Malki said. He emphasized that nothing has been decided.
Malki said the Palestinian leadership would act responsibly, and appeared to rule out desperate measures in coming months, such as dissolving their self-rule government in parts of the West Bank. Palestinian officials have also ruled out a return to large-scale violence.
Abbas is under pressure at home to end the Palestinian political split, which has weakened their statehood claim. After a breakthrough last month, in which Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal agreed that Abbas could lead an interim unity government until general elections are held, both sides have hit the brakes.
Hamas leaders in Gaza lambasted Mashaal for making the deal without consulting with them. And Abbas now says he won’t pull together a transition government of politically independent technocrats unless he can get Israeli assurances that the elections can be held in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem.
Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev said this week that Netanyahu would not stand in the way of Palestinian elections. Malki said Abbas has sought, but not received clear Israeli assurances through intermediaries.
Palestinian analyst George Giacaman said both Abbas and Hamas are reluctant to move forward because they are unwilling to break with their traditional allies. “If they reconcile completely, the first thing the US Congress will do is not just to stop aid to the Palestinians, but declare the PLO a terror organization if Hamas joins,” he said.
Malki said Abbas is moving cautiously.
“We are not going to rush things,” he said.

Honeybees May Have Personality

NOTE:  WOW!  Here's an article so appropriate for me!  Yes, I do have personality! ... Bee Sting

Bees have different “personalities”, with some showing a stronger willingness or desire to seek adventure than others, according to a study by entomologists at the University of Illinois.
Wired U.K.
The researchers found that thrill-seeking is not limited to humans and other vertebrates. The brains of honeybees that were more likely than others to seek adventure exhibited distinct patterns of gene activity in molecular pathways known to be associated with thrill-seeking in humans.
The findings present a new perspective on honeybee communities, which were thought to be highly regimented and comprised of a colony of interchangeable workers taking on a few specific roles to serve their queen.
It now seems as though individual honeybees differ in their desire to perform particular tasks and these differences could be down to variability in bees’ personalities. This supports a 2011 study at Newcastle University that suggested that honeybees exhibit pessimism, suggesting that insects might have feelings.
Gene Robinson, entomology professor and director of the Institute for Genomic Biology, said: “In humans, differences in novelty-seeking are a component of personality. Could insects also have personalities?”
Robinson and his team studies two behaviors that looked like novelty seeking: scouting for new nest sites and scouting for food. When a colony outgrows its living quarters, the swarm must hunt for a new home. Around five percent of the swarm goes hunting for new lodgings. These “nest scouts” are around 3.4 times more likely than their peers to also become food scouts, researchers discovered.
“There is a gold standard for personality research and that is if you show the same tendency in different contexts, then that can be called a personality trait,” Robinson said.
In order to understand the molecular basis for these differences, Robinson and his colleagues used whole-genome microarray analysis to look for differences in the activity of thousands of genes in the brains the thrill-seeking and non thrill-seeking bees. They found thousands of differences in gene activity.
In humans and animals, thrill-seeking behavior is thought to be linked to how the brain’s reward system responds. In bees, researchers found lots of differently expressed genes that were linked to proteins and hormones that are linked to novelty-seeking in vertebrates.
In order to test whether the changes in brain signalling caused the novelty-seeking, researchers gave bees extra glutamate and octapamine which increased scouting in bees that had not scouted before. Blocking dopamine signalling decreased scouting behavior. “Our results say that novelty-seeking in humans and other vertebrates has parallels in an insect. One can see the same sort of consistent behavioral differences and molecular underpinnings,” said Robinson.
Robinson believes that insects, humans and other animals have made use of the same genetic “toolkit” in the evolution of behavior, which each species has adapted. “It looks like the same molecular pathways have been engaged repeatedly in evolution to give rise to individual differences in novelty-seeking,” he concluded.

Official: ‘US govt already seized hundreds of foreign domains’

Published: 10 March, 2012, 16:08 -  RT

US government has taken control of 750 domains over the past few years
US government has taken control of 750 domains over the past few years
US seizure of a Canadian gambling website caused online outcry as it was registered abroad and thought to be outside American jurisdiction. But this is far from isolated; it has emerged that the US has seized hundreds of foreign domain names.
US customs official Nicole Navas confirmed that the US government has taken control of 750 domains, “most with foreign-based registrars” over the past few years.
Operation “In Our Sites”, an initiative run by US and Immigration Customs Enforcement, is dedicated to shutting down illegal websites that it believes are involved in the distribution of copyright goods and copyright works. It was initially created in 2010 to police US-owned domains, but now appears to have extended its reach using federal court orders to shut down websites.
“The ramifications of this are no less than chilling and every single organization branded or operating under .com, .net, .org, .biz etc. needs to ask themselves about their vulnerability to the whims of US federal and state lawmakers,”said EasyDNS, a multinational domain-hosting company.
The gambling site was shut down and its owner Canadian billionaire Calvin Ayre prosecuted on the basis that internet gambling is illegal in the US. However, the website was registered to a Canadian server, where gambling is perfectly legal. Homeland security justified the move citing “the movement of funds from accounts outside the US” as the reason.
At first glance it would appear that such a move was beyond US jurisdiction, but this is not so. The US can get at any .com domain through a US-based company called Verisign, which is the only organization authorized to issue new .com domains. In addition, it manages .net, .cc, .tv domains.
It simply has to issue Verisign with a court order that in turn shuts down the offending website. The Public Internet Registry also based in the US is able to do this to .org websites, which it controls.
Verisign told Wired magazine in a statement that it had acted above board and “responds to lawful court orders subject to its technical capabilities.”
The US’s seemingly unbridled power to exercise its influence throughout the web has many online activists worried that this may be what is in store if SOPA and PIPA laws are finally passed.
Bee's Note:  
Do you know someone who has had their blog removed lately?  How about sites that are exposing Islamic extremism and the ongoing attempts by American Islamic organizations bragging about their success in taking down blogs that disagree with Sharia law?  It is happening more frequently and to think, SOPA isn't necessary when use of intimidation and threats from non-governmental agencies are allowed to get their way and silence Americans.
As for foreign sites taken down, we know of a few that were removed within the last two months. If our government can claim that those sites violated copyright laws, without first allowing the sites a fair hearing, nothing posted on the Internet is safe and free speech will become a thing of the past.  As I have said before and will repeat, the Internet was the last domain where free speech was allowed - now, even the Net is becoming over-ruled by increasing laws - laws that folks aren't aware of until they, too, get hit and removed at the whim of a few - yes, few - deciding the fate of your First Amendment rights.
Those with the power to remove .com, .org links, have the power to control what information is shared between friends, among like-minded links i.e. Conservative links, and soon, the Net will simply become another form of progressive, liberal robots that speak only what they are told, by those in power and all done without bills such as SOPA ever needing to be passed by Congress.  
Did you know that Google had posted an explanation about a year ago demonstrating how many blogs were removed in different countries.  Israel had the fewest removed and the United States, the most and isn't that a bit strange, when Israel is surrounded on all sides by her worse enemies?  It's one thing to be tracking the movement of Islamic terrorists across the Net, but quite another thing, when American citizens are attacked and removed for voicing their opinions about Islam.  Is our government now allowing Sharia law to control the Net?  Just wondering.

ISRAEL UNDER FIRE! - The Barrage Continues


The Barrage Continues - At least 90 rockets fired at Israel

SATURDAY, 10 MARCH 2012 07:56 

Israel Under AttackThe Iron Dome active missile defense system has intercepted over 25 Grad rockets - which were fired at the cities of Be’er Sheva, Ashdod and Ashkelon, together home to over 520,000 people.
Said Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, founder & president of The Israel Project:
“Today is a terrible day for Israel and for the Palestinians. As more than 80 rockets and mortars have been fired into Israel, there is horrific and needless bloodshed yet again. In 2005 Israel gave up Gaza with hopes of peace. Thousands of Israeli citizens moved from Gaza so that the Palestinians could have a better future. But Iran-backed Hamas took control of Gaza.
Since then thousands of rockets have been fired by terrorists from Gaza. These rockets are aimed intentionally at Israeli civilians – even a school bus was targeted in the past. This weekend eight Israelis have been wounded. Thankfully, new technology with “Iron Dome” is saving lives in Israel. But yet again Israel has been forced into a defensive position where they must take pre-emptive action to avoid the loss of civilian lives.
Imagine, this is what happens when Iran does not have nuclear weapons to share with their proxies Hamas and Hezbollah. Given their proven system of arming, funding and training terrorists, how much worse would this be if Iran had nuclear weapons? The world must condemn the rockets now and must work even harder on sanctions to help stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Meanwhile, the Palestinians must end the terror and come to the table to create a real peace and better future for both sides.”

Summary of Tonight’s Events

Israel Under Fire: Israeli civilians are a direct target
Archive: Densely populated areas are the targets of the rockets
  • Over the past 24 hours, over 45 rockets have hit communities in southern Israel -  injuring four people, one severely, one moderately and two lightly.
  • The Iron Dome active missile defense system has intercepted over 10 Grad rockets - which were fired at the cities of Be’er Sheva, Ashdod and Ashkelon, together home to over 520,000 people.
  • Overnight, IAF aircraft targeted two weapon manufacturing facilities and two rocket launching sites in the northern Gaza Strip, a weapon manufacturing facility in the central Gaza Strip and a terror activity site in the southern Gaza Strip.
  • In addition, IAF aircraft targeted a terrorist in the central Gaza Strip and six additional terrorist squads who were in the final stages of preparing to fire rockets at Israel from separate locations in the northern and the central Gaza Strip. Direct hits were identified.
The targeting is in direct response to the rocket fire at Israeli communities in southern Israel.
