Egypt Preparing for Violence in the Streets – Western Media Silent

Category : Equipment, General Info

RECROPPED VERSION Muslim Brotherhood canBorn in Sharqiya on the Nile River delta, in Northern Egypt, on August 20, 1951, Mohamed Morsi became a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1977. Morsi served as a Member of Parliament from 2000 to 2005, and was elected as president of Egypt in June 2012. Morsi is the successor of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians poured into the streets in the capital and around the country to call on their first freely elected president to resign, in a move that many on both sides of the stark political divide feel could be decisive for Egypt’s future.

Protesters at the presidential palace in the capital chanted “Leave! Leave!” and carried signs against the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist organization of which President Mohamed Morsi is a former leader. They hoped to force Mr. Morsi to leave power just as they toppled former President Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

They say Morsi, who took office one year ago after winning an election by a razor-thin margin, has acted undemocratically and sought to increase his power while failing to solve the mounting crises in Egypt. Many have been pushed to the street by growing anger over electricity cuts, fuel shortages, food price increases, and a lack of security.

obama-fraud-723x1024First up..Obamacare
From Wikipedia:

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA),[1] commonly called Obamacare[2][3] or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. Together with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, it represents the most significant government expansion and regulatory overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system since the passage of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965.[4]

The ACA is aimed at increasing the rate of health insurance coverage for Americans and reducing the overall costs of health care. It provides a number of mechanisms—including mandates, subsidies, and tax credits—to employers and individuals to increase the coverage rate.[5][6] Additional reforms aim to improve healthcare outcomes and streamline the delivery of health care. The ACA requires insurance companies to cover all applicants and offer the same rates regardless of pre-existing conditions or sex.[7][8] The Congressional Budget Office projected that the ACA will lower both future deficits[9] and Medicare spending

 

However the Congressional Budget Office has determined that Obamacare will cost about 1.93 trillion dollars, leave 30 million uninsured and cost the average family about $20,000 a year.

Obama administration defends collecting phone records

Category : General Info

0605-VERIZON-NSA-PHONE-RECORDS_full_600(Reuters) – The Obama administration on Thursday defended its collection of the telephone records of millions of Americans as part of U.S. counterterrorism efforts, re-igniting a fierce debate over privacy even as it called the program critical to warding off an attack.

The admission came after Britain’s Guardian newspaper published on Wednesday a secret court order authorizing the collection of phone records generated by millions of Verizon Communications customers.

Privacy advocates blasted the order as unconstitutional government surveillance and called for a review of the program amid renewed concerns about intelligence-gathering efforts launched after the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.

The revelation also put a spotlight on the handling of intelligence and privacy issues by President Barack Obama’s administration, which already is under fire for searching the telephone records of Associated Press journalists and the emails and phone records of a Fox News Channel reporter as part of its inquiries into leaked government information.
