GEORGE Soros (the god father that runs the USA) Said to Make $1 Billion Since November on Yen Bet

by Katherine BurtonGEORGE AND THE DUMMY

George Soros made almost $1 billion since November from bets that the yen would tumble, according to a person close to the billionaire’s $24 billion family office.
The Japanese wager helped the firm return about 10 percent last year and 5 percent so far this year, said the person, who asked not to be named because the firm is private. The yen has weakened 17 percent versus the dollar since about the start of the fourth quarter, the worst performance over a similar period since 1985.

The yen slumped and Japanese stocks rallied as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pressed the Bank of Japan to introduce additional stimulus measures. BOJ Governor Masaaki Shirakawa and two deputies will step down next month, allowing Abe to pick leaders to implement his plan for expanded monetary easing.
Scott Bessent, chief investment officer at New York-based Soros Fund Management LLC, also has 10 percent of the firm’s internally managed portfolio betting on rising shares in Japan, said the person. Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 stock index has jumped about 28 percent since the end of September.
Bessent worked for Soros in 1992 when Soros and his chief strategist Stan Druckenmiller made a $10 billion bet that the Bank of England would be forced to devalue the pound. That wager netted $1 billion. At the time Soros’s Quantum fund was $3.3 billion.
Bessent left the firm in 2000, and returned to be CIO in 2011.

George Soros Mega-FAIL: Less Than 50 Walmart Employees Join Union-Backed Walkout

BENTONVILLE, Ark., Nov. 23, 2012 – Today, Walmart U.S. reported its best ever Black Friday events. The retailer saw larger crowds than last year and a huge response to its first ever one-hour guarantee on key electronic items. […]

“We had very safe and successful Black Friday events at our stores across the country and heard overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers,” Simon said.

In response to the UFCW’s planned protests, Simon added, “Only 26 protests occurred at stores last night and many of them did not include any Walmart associates.” In addition, the company did not experience the walk-offs that were promised by the UFCW. “We estimate that less than 50 associates participated in the protest nationwide. In fact, this year, roughly the same number of associates missed their scheduled shift as last year,” Simon said.

Walmart associates receive a 10 percent discount on general merchandise bought at Walmart stores all year long. Earlier this holiday season, the company rewarded associates with a special holiday discount of 10 percent off most food items from November 9 to January 1 to help make the holidays for its associates and their families even more special.

One Evil Human

Glen Beck has been developing material to show all the ties that Soros has through the nation and world along with his goals. This article is written by Steve Kroft from “60 Minutes”. It begins to piece together the rise of Obama and his behavior in leading the nation along with many members of Congress (in particular the Democrats, such as the election of Pelosi as the minority leader in Congress).

One Evil Human

by Steve Kroft

If you have wondered where Obama came from and just how he quickly moved from obscurity to President, or why the media is “selective” in what we are told, here is the man who most probably put him there and is responsible. He controls President Obama’s every move. Think this is absurd? Invest a few minutes and read this. You won’t regret it.
Who is Obama? Obama is a puppet and here is the explanation of the man or demon that pulls his strings. It’s not by chance that Obama can manipulate the world. I don’t think he knows how to tie his shoe laces. After reading this and Obama’s reluctance to accept help on the oil spill you wonder if the spill is part of the plan to destroy the US? “In history, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you can bet someone planned it.” Franklin Delano RooseveltWho Is George Soros? He brought the market down in 2 days. Here is what CBS’ Mr. Steve Kroft’s research has turned up. It’s a bit of a read, and it took 4 months to put it together. “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States . “George Soros”
George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good.” He killed and robbed his own Jewish people. What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience. He considers himself to be an elitist World class philosopher, despises the American way, and just loves to do social engineering and change cultures.

György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary. Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity. The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the Gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s.

When Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.

Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.” 70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect” During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “best year.”

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson. SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors. SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many, years. Was it difficult?

SOROS: No, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.

KROFT: No feelings of guilt?

SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute power.

In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros has admitted to having carried some rather “potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.” Be that as it may. After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper, one of his professors. Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper’s death in 1994. Two of Popper’s most influential teachings concerned “the open society,” and Fallibilism.

Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken. (Then again, I could be wrong about that.) The “open society” basically refers to a “test and evaluate” approach to social engineering. Regarding “open society” Roy Childs writes, “Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper’s advice about piecemeal social engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.”

In 1956 Soros moved to New York City, where he worked on Wall Street, and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation. Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral, and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune. By the 1980s he was well on his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.

In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for “The American Thinker” she says, “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England . He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically, almost overnight.”

In 1994 Soros crowed in “The New Republic,” that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.” The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history. “The “Soros Empire” indeed. In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia. At the time, Malaysia ‘s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohammad, called Soros “a = villain, and a moron.” Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people.”

The website Greek National Pride reports, “Soros was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia, Ukraine and Myanmar [Burma] Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros’ role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain. He is without conscience; a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality.”

France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars. Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum writes that the Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. Soros deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary ‘s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.

My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach. But what about America ? Soros told Australia ‘s national newspaper “The Australian.” ” America, as the centre of the globalised financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out,” he said, adding that the time has come for “a very serious adjustment” in American’s consumption habits. He implied that he was the one with the power to bring this about.”

Soros: “World financial crisis was “stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”

Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil, in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields. Obama’s largesse towards Brazil came shortly after his political financial backer, George Soros, invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Petrobras).

Tait Trussel writes, “The Petrobras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil , but it is a bad deal for the U. S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U S could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security and independence.”

A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch. com. Their mission: “This blog is dedicated to all who have suffered due to the ruthless financial pursuits of George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day be made to stop preying upon the world’s poor, that justice will be served.”

Back to America. Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now. People have been warning us. Two years ago, news sources reported that “Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous. “In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, “Soros uses his philanthropy to change or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people. His “open society” is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of a PROGRESSIVE ideology of rights and entitlements.”

Perhaps the most important of these “whistle blowers” are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book “The Shadow Party” outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel. Soros has been packing the Democratic Party with radicals, and ousting moderate Democrats for years. The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which recently became the Obama Administration.

Discover The (another good source) writes, “By his [Soros’] own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia, and Yugoslavia. When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a shadow government, a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup.”

November 2008 edition of the German magazine “Der Spiegel,” in which Soros gives his opinion on what the next POTUS (President of the U. S. ) should do after taking office. “I think we need a large stimulus package.” Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right. Soros also said that “I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U. S. needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights.”

Although Soros doesn’t (yet) own the Republican Party, like he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.

Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. According to an article by “The Baltimore Chronicle’s” Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye Group is run by “a veritable who’s who of former Republican leaders,” from CIA man Frank Carlucci, to CIA head and ex-President George Bush, Sr.

In late 2006, Soros bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton, Dick Cheney’s old stomping grounds. When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same cities, at the same time. In 2008, Soros donated $5,000,000,000 ( that’s Five Billion ) to the Democratic National Committee, DNC, to insure Obama’s win and wins for many other Alinsky trained Radical Rules Anti-American Socialist. George has been contributing a $ billion plus to the DNC since Clinton came on the scene.

Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA. And I mustn’t forget to mention Soros’ involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e. g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to. In short, George Soros controls or influences most of the MSM. Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soro’s NEMESIS.

As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”

Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America ‘s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering.”

Some of the many NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are:, the Apollo Alliance, Media Matters for America, the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America ), La Raza, and many more. For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks. org.

Poe continues, “Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”

Without Soros’ money, would the Saul Alinsky’s Chicago machine still be rolling? Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals?

America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros. Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America and his puppet, Barack Obama is leading the way.

The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

Vote ‘George Soros’s President by Proxy’ Valerie Jarrett out of office on Nov. 6

by Judi McLeod

Put a skirt on Barack Hussein Obama and parade him before the world.

Call him President Valerie Jarrett. That, more than anything else, is who and what Barack Obama really is.

With full apologies to the awesome, who called Valerie Jarrett “Obama’s Rasputin”, Rasputin’s got nothing on Jarrett. At least the mad monk came out of the dark, front and center into the palace, whereas Jarrett gets to hide on the taxpayers’ tab in the deepest of shadows.

In the sewer of Chicago politics, the Iranian-born Jarrett has never faced a court of law as one of the city’s prime slum landladies, and likely never will. Jarrett rose to power on the backs of the poor living in her ramshackle, rat-infested rental properties.

“This is what the future looks like under Barack Obama. One big rat-infested slum destined for the demolition crew. (Potter Williams Report)“After stealing millions of taxpayer dollars, Obama’s chief advisor Valerie Jarrett and her “property management” company let people live in squalor in Chicago’s Grove Parc Plaza public housing during the years from 2001 to 2006.
“‘Where’s “ the money?” asks a tenant [watch the video] of the dilapidated housing Jarrett and then state senator Barack Obama were responsible for.

“The money sure didn’t trickle down to that poor woman’s apartment.

“Jarrett was executive vice president of Habitat Co. in Chicago. They were to oversee the Section 8 housing in the South Side. Guess what?

The then state senator Obama was in charge of the district in which Grove Parc was situated.

“Where’s the money, Obama? Grove Parc was demolished in 2007 to be rebuilt into a mixed use property.

“From online website

“Woodlawn Preservation hired a new property manager, Habitat Co. At the time, the company was headed by its founder, Daniel Levin, also a major contributor to Obama’s campaigns. Valerie Jarrett was executive vice president.[…]

“A maintenance worker at the complex says money often wasn’t even available for steel wool to plug rat holes. But as late as 2003, a routine federal inspection still gave conditions at Grove Parc a score of 82 on a 100-point scale.

“When inspectors returned in 2005, they found conditions were significantly worse. Inspectors gave the complex a score of 56 and warned that improvements were necessary. They returned the following year and found things had reached a new low. Grove Parc got a score of 11 and a final warning. Three months later, inspectors found there had been insufficient improvements and moved to seize the complex from Woodlawn Preservation. […]

“But other Chicago developers and housing activists say federal subsidies can be adequate if managed properly. They say Grove Parc stands apart for how badly it fell into disrepair.

“Preservation of Affordable Housing has assumed responsibility for numerous subsidized complexes across the country.

“Grove Parc is quite an exception to what we’ve normally done because it’s in such bad shape,” said the nonprofit’s chief executive, Amy Anthony. “These complexes are often tired, they’re always denser than today’s philosophy, but they’re not usually anywhere near as deteriorated.”

“If this kind of helping the poor and oppressed are what Obama and Jarrett think is a best practice, the U.S. will end up being condemned and demolished just like Grove Parc was.”

That’s the tawdry tale of Valerie Jarrett, Chicago Slum Landlady. What about Valerie Jarrett, US ‘President by Proxy’?

Did anyone ever ask American taxpayers if they would approve the high cost to keep Jarrett, with her own Secret Service detail?

“Jarrett seems to have a 24-hour, around-the-clock detail, with five or six agents full time,” Democratic pollster Pat Caddell said in an interview recently with Breitbart News..” (Investor’s Business Daily, Sept. 25, 2012.)

If Michelle Obama had never gone to work for Jarrett when she was chief of staff for Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, would Barack ever have become president?

It is Jarrett who gets to pull Obama’s strings and the one who keeps him dancing at the end of those puppet strings.

Power-crazed people are much easier to keep tabs on when they operate out in the open and up front. Goosebumps come from imagining the scenario of a power-crazed White House advisor whose everyday activity is known only by Barack, Michelle and family.

As an example of her power and influence, it was the power-crazed Jarrett who power called off three strikes against Obama bin Laden.

Jarrett has close ties to the Obamas of the past that trump her role as Michelle’s former boss lady.

This is one boss who got to follow her employee home and stay there.

“Her father-in-law, Chicago writer and TV commentator Vernon Jarrett, was an associate of noted communist Frank Marshall Davis, Obama’s mentor during his teen years. (Investor’s “When Vernon Jarrett died in 2004, he was given a salute on the pages of People’s Weekly World, a house organ of the Communist Party USA.”

If we roll back the tape of time, it was in 2004 when Obama, still an Illinois State Senator, gave the keynote address at the Democrat National Convention and won US senate election.

The head of Obama’s poisonous pimple is Valerie Jarrett.

She dines and vacations with the First Family—and regularly tails them back home from the West Wing.


The media should follow the trail of the Jarrett story in order to join the dots.

Where does Valerie Jarrett live? Where does she go? What is her daily schedule?

Go out onto the trail and throw Valerie Jarrett into the cleansing sunshine.

Find out who Valerie Jarrett really is and you find out who Barry Soetoro Obama really is.

From late-night arrests in the USSR to Soros-funded ‘progressive’ assaults on freedom in the U.S.

by Lev Navrozov

I was born in Moscow; I went to a Soviet school, where I discovered that there were things one should never mention in class. In particular, my parents told me never to reveal to my classmates any conversations we were having at home and never to discuss anything going on in our family. So at an early age I learned how to keep my mouth shut.
Children in my class talked about everything — what was happening at home, who their family’s friends were, what books they were reading, what radio programs they tuned to, and so on. Amongst us there were innocents who discussed all the details of their families’ lives, not suspecting that someone might be listening to what they were saying in order to report it to their KGB bosses.

The “overnight billionaire, socialist mediocrity” George Soros.
There was one boy in our class who paid a high price for having been overly talkative. He said that his father had a fight with their neighbor over food shortages in Moscow and allegedly complained that food prices were high and life in general was miserable. At night, there was a knock on the door, and his father was taken away by the KGB men. He was pronounced the “enemy of the people.” His son was summoned to the KGB quarters to confirm his story.
The boy’s father (Iosif U.), a highly specialized engineer, was educated in Germany. Building bridges was his specialty. And that was precisely what the Soviet authorities were looking for: they needed a brilliant engineer to build a bridge of strategic importance in Siberia.
Without trial, I.U. was “sentenced” to 7 years. He was serving his term in Siberia, where he was building that bridge. The boy’s mother was allowed to see her husband twice a year and even to spend some time with him. A sort of an important prisoner, he enjoyed certain privileges like living in a wooden hut of his own, with no utilities except a Russian stove for heating, to withstand Siberian winter and prepare his own meals.
That was not the only story of this kind. Whenever the Soviet dictators needed free labor, they would arrest a person “on suspicion,” usually at night, and then, without trial, would sentence him to serve time in a hard-labor camp to work for free.
On occasion some KGB man would spot a woman to his liking who wouldn’t reciprocate his feelings. No problem! In his attempt to get her, he would have her husband arrested and their children if they had any sent to an orphanage, while the KGB man would get the prize. We were close to such one family — the husband was arrested but his beautiful wife committed suicide. We took their little girl to live with us.
And that was but only one of many such episodes from the criminal reality of Soviet everyday life.
You can imagine our joy and disbelief when we got the news that we were allowed to leave the Soviet hell.
On our arrival to New York, settled in our what we still think is a beautiful apartment, I finished writing my book “The Education of Lev Navrozov: A life in the closed world once called Russia,” which was published by Harper’s Magazine Press in 1975.
In the late 1970s, I challenged the liberal New York Times and invited its owners and publishers to a conference in a New York hotel to debate. They did not grace the packed conference hall with their presence. So I delivered my address, debating their symbolic presence next to my rostrum, and took questions from the audience.
Having come from Soviet Russia after having spent there over 40 years of my life, I knew I had an obligation to share my first-hand experience of living there and tell the truth about the Soviet criminal dictatorial regime.
I hear those dark times are coming back, with Vladimir Putin, a mighty KGB man, again at the helm of the country.
In my lecture tours I tried to enlighten the Western countries as to the harsh realities of Soviet life and the need for the Western democracies to always be ready to defend their democratic values.
The American audiences were very responsive: 36 of my articles were read into the Congressional Record by Sen. Jesse Helms, a truly great American and champion of freedom, and Ronald Reagan published my article in his Newsletter. Excerpts from my 47-page article “Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Third Reincarnation,” published by “Global Affairs ” (winter 1987) was also read into the Congressional Record by Mr. Hecht (Congressional Record—Senate. Vol. 133. Proceedings and Debates of the 100th Congress, First Session. Washington, Wednesday, April 29, 1987. No. 67).
It is now that I again am worried about the future destiny of this exceptional country: Will the American Constitution survive Obama’s desperate attempts at chipping away its very foundation on which it was built by the Founding Fathers?
Look at the list of those liberal, “progressive” organizations — there are hundreds of them! — all sponsored by that overnight billionaire, socialist mediocrity George Soros — all of them supporting Obama’s liberal, destructive socialist policies.
My only hope is that this time, while it is not too late, the American people will make the right choice by giving their votes to Mitt Romney and his VP Paul Ryan, both of whom will steer the country back on the right track.

The Rise of the Islamist:: Muslim Brotherhood’s Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi Ousts Top Military Leaders

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi shook up the country’s powerful military leadership Sunday, replacing top generals and reasserting power the military claimed for itself before he took office.

Field Marshal Mohammed Hussein Tantawi, the defense minister who took power after the 2011 ouster of longtime strongman Hosni Mubarak, was given a top medal and “sent to retirement,” Morsi spokesman Yasser Ali announced Sunday evening on state-run Nile Television. So was Lt. Gen. Sami Anan, the chief of staff of the armed forces.

Both men were named as advisers to Morsi, the country’s first freely elected president, but no details of the new posts were announced. The commanders of Egypt’s navy, air force and air defense force were sent into retirement as well, Ali said.

The announcement comes a little over a month after Morsi and the generals butted heads over the new presidents’ attempt to recall the country’s disbanded parliament. Analysts called the moves a sign of a major shift in the balance of power between civilian leaders and the military, the backbone of the modern Egyptian state.

“This is the first time in Egypt’s political history that an elected civilian politician overrules the decisions of the heads of the military establishment,” said Omar Ashour, a visiting scholar at the Brookings Institution’s Doha Center.

Source: Egyptian forces raid Sinai militants

Prime Minister Hesham Kandil said Morsi “adheres to the legal procedures and the constitution in his decision.” Morsi “recognizes Field Marshal Tantawi’s hard work in the transitional phase and his efforts in leading Egypt to safety during the revolution,” but “His expertise will be of higher value as an adviser to the president.”

Morsi promoted Maj. Gen. Abdul Fatah Khalil al-Sisi, the head of military intelligence, to defense minister and head of Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, with the rank of field marshal, Nile TV said. He also named Mahmoud Mekki as his vice president, and he reversed a June constitutional decree by the Supreme Council that claimed to retain legislative authority until a new parliament could be sworn in near the end of the year, Ali said.

Egyptian president visits troubled border area

Morsi’s Freedom and Justice party, the political wing of the long-suppressed Muslim Brotherhood, called for supporters to rally in support of the moves Sunday night in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the revolt against Mubarak.

The steps announced Sunday come as Egyptian forces are battling militants in the Sinai Peninsula blamed for an attack that killed more than a dozen troops at a border post last week. They follow an abortive July attempt by Morsi to recall the parliament that the generals ordered dissolved in late June, a challenge to military authority that was halted by Egypt’s highest court.

Morsi assumed office June 30 and moved quickly to assert his authority, attempting to call back into session lawmakers whose elections had been thrown out by a June decision from Egypt’s Constitutional Court.

Egypt launches airstrikes in Sinai after troop massacre

In the aftermath of the court decision, the generals announced they would retain the power to make laws and budget decisions until a new parliament was elected under a new constitution. Under the military council’s decree, Egypt’s new constitution must be drawn up within three months.

Morsi’s bid faltered when the Constitutional Court declared that its ruling was final. Rabab Elmahdi, a professor of political science at American University in Cairo, said Morsi was pushed into Sunday’s shakeup by resistance “from the military establishment, from the old regime.”

Egypt’s president condemns deadly attack in Sinai

“I think what we’re seeing is a changing balance of power on the ground,” Elmahdi said. “The legitimacy of the first elected president in Egyptian history is something we cannot take lightly, and I think Morsi was sort of forced to make use of this kind of legitimacy.”

Meanwhile, the military establishment, which has dominated the Egyptian state since 1952, doesn’t want to rule directly, she said.

“They have much more complicated interests — economic interests and political interests to keep the institution intact,” Elmahdi said.

Adelson files $60m Libel suit after Democrat False Smear

Casino magnate and GOP donor Sheldon Adelson has filed a $60 million libel suit against the National Jewish Democratic Council. The NJDC had demanded that Mitt Romney and other Republicans refuse donations from Adelson because he had “personally approved of prostitution at his Macau resorts.”

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee repeated the same claim, but backed down in response to Adelson’s threat of a lawsuit, admitting that “the statements were untrue and unfair and we retract them.” …

However, the NJDC has refused to acknowledge its error, and is planning to take this battle to court: “We will not be bullied into submission, and we will not be silenced by power.”

There’s a troubling new development regarding U.S. efforts to protect our borders. The leadership of unions representing thousands of immigration agents now contend that the Obama Administration – specifically the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) – is implementing a new policy that forces officials to ignore the law and allow illegal immigrants to stay in this country with no verifiable documentation.

The concern is clear: the Obama Administration’s lax enforcement of our immigration policy now becomes even worse – with border agents claiming they are under threat of losing their jobs if they don’t give illegal immigrants a pass.

As Chris Crane, president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, put it: “Our orders are: If an alien says they went to high school, then let them go. If they say they have a GED, then let them go. Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything. Even with the greatly relaxed policies, the alien is not required to prove that they meet any of the new criteria.”

This is absurd. As I told Megyn Kelly on FOX News today, this not only out of step with the law, it now puts prosecutorial discretion in the hands of illegal immigrants.

This latest development is properly raising concerns on Capitol Hill. “The lawlessness must end,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) said. “They’ve handcuffed and muffled those charged with protecting the public safety and the integrity of our borders. Such action has not only weakened our security but our democracy. All Americans, immigrant and native born, will have a better future if our nation remains unique in the world for its special reverence for the rule of law and fairness in our immigration system.”

All of this comes as a new study is released – a study that suggests a pattern by the Obama administration of looking the other way on immigration enforcement. The Federation for American Immigration Reform catalogued dozens of statements and policy decisions since 2009. The group claims the “unilateral actions” all bend toward the same goal — “to render enforcement of U.S. immigration laws ineffective.”

Broadcast The Truth – Wake Up America – Stop The George Soros Takeover of Our Country

Barak Obama is the puppet of George Soros. He makes no decisions, he writes no speeches and he doesn’t meet with anyone because he does not run anything.

He is in place to deliver the speeches written for him by John Podesta and George Soro’s Center for American Progress, to put in place George Soro’s one world government and to destroy America

John Podesta is Chair and Counselor of the George Soros Center for American Progress and the Center for American Progress Action Fund. Under his leadership, American Progress has become a notable leader running the Obama Government and advocacy for progressive communistic one world policy.

It should come as no surprise that President Obama,hasn’t lifted a finger to work with the Congress on jobs or to resolve these big issues. The president “doesn’t even have time to meet with his own jobs council. He’s just out there campaigning every day and looking for somebody else to blame.”

Does anybody else find it ironic that President Obama is touring the country campaigning, and the biggest platform of said campaign seems to be that we need to raise taxes on people making more than $250,000 dollars? This is what George Soros and John Podesta tell him to do. The Obama Government is run with Blackberry transmissions to the cabinet heads and Czars from the Center For American progress.

George Soros is holding the fiscal cliff for the trigger of collapse. Nothing will happen until Soros gives the word.

Obama continues to be the Clown President and Chief puppet. Wake up America it is in plain site. The Clown continues – A new report released by the Government Accountability Institute on Wednesday reveals that Barack Obama spent 412 hours in economic meetings so far during his almost four years in the White House.

Wynton Hall of notes that on average, Obama has spent “just eight minutes more a week on economic meetings than the average dog owner spends walking their dog.”

By the President’s own estimates, he has spent more time on the golf course than in economic meetings.

In June, we reported that Obama marked his 100th round of golf. The President said that it was “the only time that for six hours, I’m outside.”

Obama: I will not rest until everyone has a job. (Complete B. S.)

Do the math, and that calculates to 600 hours playing golf, versus 412 in economic meetings.

“You should know that keeping the economy growing and making sure jobs are available is the first thing I think about when I wake up every morning,” he told UPS workers in 2011. “It’s the last thing I think about when I go to bed each night.”

He may think about it a lot, but apparently, it doesn’t keep him off the golf course. This is complete B.S.

Throughout the first 1,257 days of his presidency, Mr. Obama has spent just 412 hours in economic meetings or briefings of any kind.

In 2012, so far Obama has spent just 24 total hours in economic meetings of any kind.
Assuming a six day, 10-hour workweek, Obama has spent less than 4 percent of his total time in economic meetings or briefings of any kind.

There were 773 days (72 percent), excluding Sundays, in which he had no economic meetings.

Mr. Obama has spent an average of 138 minutes a week in economic meetings. According to a study published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, new dog owners spent an average of 130 minutes a week walking their dogs.

Earlier this week, Americans learned that Obama has not met with his highly touted “Jobs Council” for six months. When pressed, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the President has “got a lot on his plate.”

“But he continues to solicit and receive advice from numerous folks outside the administration about the economy, about ideas that he can act on with Congress or administratively to help the economy grow and help it create jobs,” Carney said.

Speaking to a crowd in Ohio, Mitt Romney said that in that same period of time, Obama has held 100 fundraisers.

“His priority is not creating jobs for you,” Romney said. “His priority is trying to keep his own job. And that’s why he’s going to lose it.”
