Trump Personally Works Deal To Rescue American Aid Worker Held For 3 Years In Egypt
WILL TRUMP GET ANY CREDIT FOR THIS? DON’T BE SILLY.
Donald Trump’s administration has secured the freedom of an Egyptian-US charity worker who was detained for nearly three years in Cairo.
Aya Hijazi, 30, was flown back to the US on Thursday night with her family on a US government jet.
Ms Hijazi, whose charity cared for street children, faced child abuse charges branded false by rights groups.
Her release was reportedly agreed before Mr Trump met Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi this month.

Students vote to give blacks free tuition at Western Kentucky University
The school’s Student Government Association passed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus.
The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported.
“We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to high quality educational opportunities in the form of full and free access for all black people (including undocumented, currently and formerly incarcerated people to Western Kentucky University),” the resolution reads, according to the Daily News.

Kickin’ It with the Kids

We had Miss Isabel and Miss Olivia as overnight guests. Grandma took them to WalMart yesterday, then they helped her prepare supper. Today we’re taking them to Aldi’s to pick up the last of the fresh things we need for dinner Sunday. Miss Isabel wants to be a chef, so we watched Chopped Junior and Cooks Vs. Cons on Food Network last night. Today we’re going to watch Disney’s Christmas Carol and my favorite version of it, the 1951 version with Alistair Sim. They’ve been trying to sneak a peek under the tree, but every kid does that. These little ones are what make life worthwhile.

Egypt scuttles UN vote on Israeli settlement after Trump warning
OBAMA WAS GOING TO LET THE CONDEMNATION STAND… TRUMP DROPPED A DIME ON EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT SIS, WHO PULLED THE RESOLUTION. HE KNOWS THE DONALD DON’T PLAY.
Egyptian officials scrapped a plan to proceed with a United Nations Security Council vote condemning the construction of Israeli settlements, following pushback from Israeli officials and President-elect Trump.
Israeli settlement construction drew condemnation from the State Department earlier this year, in addition to the rebukes of more customary critics, raising fears in Israel and among congressional Republicans that President Obama might not veto a resolution on the matter in the waning days of his presidency.

Waffles and Uncle Joe actually went GOLFING right after the speech. But what the hey.

The Secretary of State went yachting while Egypt burned and his U.N. Ambassador missed an emergency UN Security Council meeting on Syria because she was at a comedy film festival in Ireland.

President Bush’s last round of golf was October 13, 2003. As much as he loved the game, he said,

“I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal. I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the Commander-in-Chief playing golf.”

I think I have to throw up now.

2013_08 22 Violence against Egyptian Christians

Dear Chrissy,

My next door neighbor, Sam, is a lovely, lovely new American citizen whose family are all still in Egypt. He is a Coptic Christian, as are the rest of his family. He asked that I spread the word, so I figured this was a good place to get started.

Love, Ting

Dear Friends,

You may have heard in the last few days about Egypt through the media. I hope you will take time to read the email below. As an Egyptian who was born in Egypt and is now an Egyptian-American, I cannot agree more with the content of this email. It truly explains the current situation in Egypt accurately. The Brotherhood is nothing more than a terrorist group who tries to take away the tiny bit of freedom that everyday Egyptians have and impose their radical religious beliefs on others. I have been enjoying the freedom and democracy here in America. I hope someday that my family and other Egyptians will have the same freedoms or even a small part of the liberties we so often take for granted. Please, pass this message to your friends and may I ask your prayers for all law abiding Egyptians both Muslim and Christian.

Thank you, Sam

Dear Pete and Ardy,

Hope all is going well at your end. I wish you happiness and health and all the good in the world.

I need to ask you to please spread the word. You know us, you know Egypt and I am so surprised at the media in the US and Europe. We took to the streets in millions on the 30th of June to oust Morsi and the MBs from Egypt.

These people are terrifying us. Their leaders literally said that the terrorist attacks in Sinai could stop if morsi is released. I heard them myself. We took to the streets again today to support General Sisi’s campaign against terrorism.

MBs are real dictators, they have alienated everybody at the time of Morsi’s rule. The constitution they passed is far from democratic ( I read it all ). Morsi released terrorists from prisons, in thousands. I saw faces that I thought were sentenced to death because they killed both Egyptians and tourists on the peaceful land of Egypt. Please spread the word, it is not a coup, it is a war against terrorism and we are supporting Sisi all the way.

MBs are hiring thugs to shoot protestors, they steel dead people’s bodies and claim they belong to them to show the world that they are the victims. I know one of them! And other friends know of other examples.

Al Jazeera, CNN, Guardian and BBC are lying to the world. They are showing Morsi’s supporters as millions and this is not true.. MBs are protesting near by my mother’s place and they kidnap people and they torture them inside the “mosque” can you believe this?

Our army is being shot at in Sinai and many soldiers killed while defending our land. We trust them, we sought their support to bring our country back and they responded to us.

I am sorry for my long email, and sorry to bother you. But I know you love Egypt and you know Egypt more than many Egyptians do. If you could spread the word, I and so many others will be very grateful to you.

Love you both very much, and wish you peace and happiness forever, Nermine

The Democrat Dictionary of Relative Terms UPDATED

UPDATE: ABC News (aka, the All Barack Channel) butt snorkels the bias with “news” report about how HARD Kerry was working on EGYPT … while he was yachting and strolling around Nantucket.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/07/state-department-john-kerry-focused-on-egypt-despite-visit-to-yacht/

http://twitchy.com/2013/07/05/objectivity-overboard-abc-news-runs-interference-for-yachtsman-kerry/

The Democrat Dictionary of Relative Terms:

In addition to previous entries such as “is”, “sexual relations”, and “transparency”, please now add “completely inaccurate” and “briefly.”

As our ally — aka, Egypt — goes up in flames and Morsi — aka, the Egyptian president Obama gave big honking military weapons to — goes down in flames, one might suppose that Obama’s new Secretary of State — aka, John “Reporting For Duty” Kerry — would be, you know, On Duty.

2013 Aid to Egypt

2013_07 05 Egypt protests turn deadly

Some bozo claimed he saw Obama’s SecState in Nantucket, a ritzy island off Massachusetts which just doesn’t look very good for the Ø Administration, so naturally, they put out a “SecState Kerry has his NOSE to the grindstone in DC” message.

Except, oh wait, it wasn’t just one person who saw him cruising around on his 1%er YACHT. It was like … you know … SEVERAL.

Oh wait … hang on … make that four. Oops, five. And damn how many people have cameras and wireless uploading these days. Add a pesky video of Kerry’s motorcade violating Nantucket traffic regs and a state cop who confirmed that it was Kerry’s motorcade.

And THEN, dammit, as the BBC reported Morsi had been ousted, the Boston Herald reported (with pictures) that Kerry was enjoying a “sun splashed” vacay with his family on the other side of the globe from our beleaguered ally.

2013_07 Kerry is not oh wait he is in Nantucket

2013_07 05 State Dept lies

Seriously. Is there anything this Administration WON’T lie about?
