Did brain injury from boxing cause Boston bombing suspect's violence?
AP Scrubs ‘Muslim’ from Obama’s Self-Referential Joke | FrontPage Magazine
Why? Did they think it had too much of a ring of truth?
Why did some editors at AP or at the publications that picked up the AP story think it necessary to run interference for Obama on this point?
By mocking the idea that he is a Muslim (and a Socialist), Obama is trying to render these things too ridiculous for serious public discussion. Fine. His personal beliefs are of no moment, except insofar as they influence his public stances. And the direction of his public policies is obvious. He has maintained a consistent foreign policy line that has enabled the establishment of several Islamic supremacist, pro-Sharia states in North Africa and the Middle East, and a domestic policy that has enabled the advance of the Islamic supremacist agenda to assert the primacy of Islamic law over American law and practice wherever they conflict. No amount of mockery will obscure that.
The record is clear.

The Russians do not generally share their intelligence with us. But our Massive Intel-Bureaucracies, at least 22 of them, all keeping their eunuch's rice bowls full, buried the information. They didn't use it, review it, nor share it. They kept it on their own self-serving turf. Judge Pirro is absolutely right, they "stove-piped" it!

If you have ever been in a knife fight, you wish you could have prevented it by brandishing a gun! It’s Time To Do Something About Knives
Knives are all around us. Most people own 2 or 3. Some even own a dozen. Some knives are safely dull but others can cut through anything. Flip through the television channels late at night and you can catch infomercials in which grinning men in red aprons cut through wood, metal and leather with knives that anyone with a credit card and no common sense can buy.
Most people don’t think about knives at all. They don’t think about knife culture. They don’t think about what’s wrong with a society that allows anyone to buy a set of Japanese ceramic knives that claim to be able to cut through bone faster than any other knife on earth for only $29.95 plus shipping and handling.
They don’t think about the knives until the knives come after them.
On April 14th, Dylan Quick, a Lone Star College student, stabbed fourteen fellow students, many in the face and neck. Quick had fantasized about stabbing people to death and wearing their faces as masks since he was eight years old. And with a knife, he almost succeeded in making his dream come true.
It would be all too easy to fall into the trap of blaming Dylan Quick for his actions, but we must look deeper and ask, what about the knife? Without the knife, Quick would have been just another college student fantasizing harmlessly, like most college students do, about cannibalism and necrophilia. It was the knife that made Dylan Quick dangerous. He wouldn’t have gotten very far stabbing people with his hands.
Quick carried out his stabbing spree with an X-Acto razor utility knife.

"...after a White House Deputies Meeting on Saturday, September 15, 2012, the Administration altered the talking points to remove references to the likely participation of Islamic extremists in the attacks… removed references to the threat of extremists linked to al-Qa’ida in Benghazi and eastern Libya, including information about at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi."It is called perjury!
Obama & Clinton’s Benghazi Lies Exposed | FrontPage Magazine
Ranking Democrats on the same five committees, who said they were not included in writing the report, dismissed it as politically motivated. “You are sacrificing accuracy in favor of partisanship,” they said in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).
Hardly. Dividing the timeline into three sections — before, during and after the attack — the report paints a damning picture of the Hillary Clinton-led State Department, which knew “the threat environment in Benghazi was high and that the Benghazi compound was vulnerable and unable to withstand an attack, yet the Department continued to systematically withdraw security personnel.”
The smoking gun revealed in the report — contrary to Hillary Clinton’s congressional testimony that requests for additional security in Benghazi never reached her — was that “an April 2012 State Department cable bearing Secretary Hillary Clinton’s signature acknowledged then-Ambassador Cretz’s formal request for additional security assets but ordered the withdrawal of security elements to proceed as planned.” A Senate report, “Flashing Red: A Special Report on the Terrorist Attack at Benghazi,” released on December 31, confirmed the lack of security, citing ”extremely poor security in a threat environment that was ‘flashing red.’”

California eyes penny-per-ounce tax on sodas and energy drinks to combat child obesity - NY Daily News
In addition to "Dr." Biden, the author is spot on in skewering two of biggest phonies in our society,
Dr. Cornel West and Dr. Maya Angelou.
"Dr. Biden is not alone in having recognized the virtue of pretending to be a doctor in public. The L.A. Times has identified a “select group of non-medicos who are routinely referred to as ‘Dr.’” The most prominent of these are Dr. Cornel West and Dr. Maya Angelou. Given his leveling views, quite why Cornel West insists upon describing himself as “Dr. West” is beyond me. Still, whatever the reason, at least he actually uses his Princeton doctorate, in academia. Maya Angelou’s title is derived from the more than 30 honorary doctorates that she has been awarded. Why does she add the “Dr.”? “The Ph.D. system,” complains the renegade British-American physicist Freeman Dyson, “is the real root of the evil of academic snobbery. People who have Ph.D.s consider themselves a priesthood.” Ah, that’s why."To add "insult to irony," during the period of Southern Jim Crow, the title of "Dr." was bestowed on black men by whites to get around calling them "Mr."
The 'Jim Crow Museum' form Ferris State Univ. explains the Etiquette in this past, sad, hierarchy much better:
Whites much preferred to give blacks honorary titles, such as Doctor, or Professor, or Reverend, in order to avoid calling them Mister. While the term "nigger" was universally used, some whites were uncomfortable with it because they knew it was offensive to most blacks. As a substitute, the word "niggra" often appeared in polite society.

Yet some of them can seem menacing or portentous, given what we now suspect: “a decade in america already, I want out,” “Never underestimate the rebel with a cause” or “No one is really violent until they’re with the homies.” But others suggest a more Holden Caulfield-like adolescent alienation: “some people are just misunderstood by the world thus the increase of suicide rates.”

|Who are they protecting, us or just themselves?|
With the exception of the Russians, who, if you will pardon the expression, Red Flagged these two 'Chetchin' Terrorists, the whole body of the combined US, State, Local and any other jurisdiction of Governmental agency flat out failed before, and in many cases after, the terrorist's bombs blew up!
Most of these agencies are terribly inept, especially the over bloated Department of Homeland Security (DHS)!
All appear to spend much of their time, effort and energy on protecting their own turf instead of "protecting" us. They have failed and should be cut back severely or completely disbanded, i.e. DHS.

He mocked the fast-mini "call to prayer measured by him as only 22 seconds" Turkey Convicts World-Renowned Pianist for ‘Defaming’ Islam
Turkey Convicts World-Renowned Pianist for ‘Defaming’ Islam | FrontPage Magazine
by Andrew Harrod On April 23, 2013
The composer and pianist Say, who has played for the New York Philharmonic, Berlin Symphony, and other prominent orchestras, had made comments deemed offensive by various Muslims on his Twitter account. In one tweet, Say mocked a call to prayer measured by him as only 22 seconds in length. “Why such haste?” Say tweeted. “Have you got a mistress waiting or a raki on the table?” he asked in reference to a traditional alcoholic drink made with aniseed falling under Islam’s alcohol prohibition. Other Say tweets cited by the charges included one in which he questioned whether heaven was a tavern or brothel on the basis of a verse attributed to the famous medieval poet Omar Khayyam. Say, who was in southern Germany at the time of the verdict for a concert, received a10-month suspended sentence that he will not have to serve unless he commits the same offense in the next five years.
In response, Sevim Dağdelen, a Turkish-descent member of the German parliament and international affairs spokesperson for her Left party (Die Linke),condemned the verdict in a press release. Dağdelen had previously attended Say’s trial opening on October 18, 2012, (later postponed until February 18, 2013) and had drawn international attention to Says cause. The press release called the verdict a “scandal” of the “Erdoğan-Regime” and its “AKP justice” in reference to Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his AKP party. She demanded an immediate end to German participation in Turkish European Union (EU) accession talks in order not “to reward the AKP for its running amok against democracy and human rights.” Ironically, Dağdelen’s party has its origins, in part, in the successor to East Germany’s Communists, the Party of Democratic Socialism (Partei des Demokratischen Sozialismus or PDS).
