Obama’s doomed attempt to save his legacy - The White House adopts a strategy of deception by distraction In a desperate move to salvage his second term, Mr. Obama threw out his top liberal agenda items — immigration, gun control and race relations — and pivoted to the economy. The problem is that the only one to blame for the five-year malaise is the current resident of the Oval Office. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/26/obamas-doomed-attempt-to-save-his-legacy/ ——————————-
President Obama celebrated the Muslim holy month of Ramadan with an Iftar dinner Thursday night, quoting the Koran and praising Muslim immigrants for helping build the nation.
Hosting Muslim officials and business leaders at a State Dining Room dinner, Obama said, “Throughout our history, Islam has contributed to the character of our country, and Muslim Americans, and their good works, have helped to build our nation — and we’ve seen the results. We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants — farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities. Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped to unlock the secrets of our universe.”
He also used the even to call on nations to follow America’s lead in letting people choose the religion of their choice, or not practice at all. “These are occasions to reflect on the teachings that so many religions share; to celebrate the diversity that defines our country; and to reaffirm one of our most deeply held beliefs, that here in America and around the world, people should be free to choose the God that they worship however they choose, to practice their faiths freely, or to practice no faith at all.” [Now that's a good one, isn't it? Do you think the Muslims will stop killing Infidels?] http://washingtonexaminer.com/obama-praises-muslim-immigrants-for-helping-build-america/article/2533526 ———–
President Obama talking to reporters alongside Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang. “…we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.”
It may come as some unwelcome news to the families of the nearly 60,000 Americans who died in the Vietnam War that the whole thing was just a misunderstanding.
The message here was that if only we might have bridged our differences then – if only Ho and Truman could have done what Obama and Sang did this week, so much unpleasantness might have been avoided.
[Huma Abedin - wife of Anthony Weiner (Carlos Danger) and side kick at the State Dept. to one Hillary Clinton]: Sorry to interrupt the Best Enabler of a Sociopath Award ceremony but, to recap, Ms. Abedin worked for many years at a journal that promotes Islamic-supremacist ideology that was founded by a top al-Qaeda financier, Abdullah Omar Naseef. Naseef ran the Rabita Trust, a formally designated foreign terrorist organization under American law. Ms. Abedin and Naseef overlapped at the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA) for at least seven years. Throughout that time (1996–2003), Ms. Abdein worked for Hillary Clinton in various capacities.
Ms. Abedin’s late father, Dr. Zyed Abedin, was recruited by Naseef to run the JMMA in Saudi Arabia. The journal was operated under the management of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth, a virulently anti-Semitic and sharia-supremacist organization. When Dr. Abedin died, editorial control of the journal passed to his wife, Dr. Saleha Mahmood Abedin — Huma’s mother. http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/354351/huma-unmentionables-andrew-c-mccarthy ———————

US Secretary of State John Kerry caused a bit of a stir on Thursday at the United Nations when he apparently misspoke by referring to the country of Palestine.
The reference to a country of Palestine was something that a State Department spokeswoman was later obliged to disavow, assuring reporters that US policy had not changed, according to AFP. http://www.timesofisrael.com/kerry-refers-to-country-of-palestine/ —–
On Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that he would sign the UN Pact on behalf of President Obama to bring the United States in compliance to enact a national gun registry. http://www.examiner.com/article/obama-yields-u-s-sovereignty-to-un-to-disarm-american-citizens?fb_action_ids=10200739813234984&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=message&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582 —————
Welfare: SNAP, the U.S. food stamp program, has become a conduit for redistributing wealth and fundamentally transforming America, as welfare recipients now send food overseas and the White House markets to illegals. http://lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=745518 —
Freed from Voting Rights Acts oversight eliminated last month by a U.S. Supreme Court ruling, the Republican-led North Carolina Legislature has approved some of the nation’s most sweeping new voting regulations. Besides requiring voters to show ID cards, the legislation shortens early voting and eliminates pre-registration initiatives for students, among other measures. http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-north-carolina-voting-20130727,0,2299545.story —————–
SARAH PALIN: We show what happened, back in 2008, I believe that’s when it started, when the media decided to just go along to get along with Obama, ingratiating themselves with him and vice versa. What we saw was these attempts to destroy these whistleblowers, those who were telling the truth, even in the campaign. Those who were bringing up the name Jeremiah Wright and the racist church he leads that Obama was a member of for over 20 years.
Though It was during the campaign running for VP, I was banned from talking about Jeremiah Wright and Obama’s friend, Bill Ayers, the character that he befriended and kicked off his political campaign in the guy’s living room. Couldn’t talk about that. Couldn’t talk about Obama’s lack of knowledge and job experience and the things that he said like America had 57 states, things like that.
In the campaign, Greta, this is important for Americans to understand. I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those elitists, those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine running John McCain’s campaign at the time said that the media would eat us alive if we brought up these things. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2013/07/26/sarah_palin_i_was_not_allowed_to_tell_the_truth_about_obama_in_2008.html
