Russia Pushes Reset Button–
Missile reads: “To be personally delivered to Obama.”
In March 2009 Hillary Clinton announced that the Obama Adminstration was going to push the reset button with the Russians.
Unfortunately, the administration bungled their delivery and spelled out “overcharge” rather than “restart” on their prop.

This week Russia pushed its own reset button…
Russians paraded a missile on Army Day marked “to be personally delivered to Obama.”
The missile included a Communist hammer and sickle on the front.
The Obama Administration put the US Marines were on alert in southern Europe today as a precaution in advance of massive protests expected in Egypt.
But the Obama Administration wouldn’t send US Marines in Europe to assist the US Ambassador in Benghazi on 9-11. Four Americans were killed in the Benghazi terrorist attacks on 9-11 including the US ambassador.
U.S. Marines stationed in southern Europe have been put on alert as a precaution in advance of expected large demonstrations and potential unrest in Egypt this weekend, CNN has learned.
About 200 combat capable Marines in Sigonella, Italy, and Moron, Spain, have been told to be ready to be airborne within 60 minutes of getting orders to deploy, according to two administration officials.
The units have several V-22 tilt-rotor aircraft that would carry troops and infantry weapons to Egypt to protect the U.S. Embassy and American government personnel and citizens if violence broke out against Americans.
The planned demonstrations are aimed against the Egyptian government.
The officials both emphasized this is contingency planning in advance of the expected demonstrations to ensure American military assets, including rescue forces, can act if needed. In the event Americans had to be evacuated from Egypt and could not get to the airport due to the unrest, there are about 2,000 additional Marines on board three Navy warships in the Red Sea, officials said.
A third official said the decision to keep the warship in the Red Sea was “very precautionary.”
The United States expects Egyptian security forces will be able to protect American assets and personnel. No plans for personnel to leave have been announced, State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said Friday.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
The Daily Sheeple
Remember that old phrase, “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help”? Well, it looks like we are hearing it again, at least on the issue of keeping Americans’ retirement funds safe. The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is weighing whether it should take on a role in ‘helping’ Americans manage the $19.4 trillion they have put into retirement savings. This would be the agency’s first incursion into the investments of consumers.
“That’s one of the things we’ve been exploring and are interested in in terms of whether and what authority we have,” said bureau director Richard Cordray.
You know, because Obama defeated al-Qaeda so there was no real threat.
Via Washington Examiner:
House investigators warned Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to expect a hearing into their finding that that American staff at the U.S. Embassy in Libya had their request for additional security denied by Washington officials.
“Based on information provided to the Committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012,” […]
THE AMERICAN DREAM
If we are trying to become independent of foreign oil, then why is the Obama administration allowing the Chinese government to buy up U.S. oil and gas deposits worth billions of dollars? This makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. The United States desperately needs to maintain control over its own domestic energy resources so that we can end our addiction to foreign oil.

Class war is not just inevitable but justifiable writes Rick Bookstaber, who serves on the Obama administraiton’s Financial Stability Oversight Council.
I wonder if the thinks those Occupy Wall Street protesters breaking out the glass of banks is “justifiable.”
On Wednesday evening, GBTV unveiled a powerful documentary, “Rumors of War III,” exposing how radical Islamists, including the Muslim Brotherhood, are infiltrating American government at its highest levels. Above is a video clip from the program outlining some of the key players involved.
The following is an overview of each of the Islamist figures who have found their place — in some way, shape or form — at the Obama administration’s table.
The Obama administration’s account of the mission that killed Osama bin Laden “directly contradicts” the experiences of Navy SEALs involved, according to a new book by former SEAL commander Chuck Pfarrer.
In “SEAL Target Geronimo: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama bin Laden,” Pfarrer details the mission through extensive interviews with the SEALs involved, the book advertises.
“In a hasty effort to claim victory and make political haste, administration aides changed their stories several times,” reads a press release for the book. “Their leaks made SEAL Team Six look ineffective and clumsy.”
The book sets the record straight, the release claims, “taking readers on the helicopter flight over the wall that leads deep into the terrorist lair and describing what it looked, sounded and smelled like as the bullets flew.”
Foreign Policy: It’s official — the radical Muslim Brotherhood has co-opted America’s agenda in the Mideast and possibly the broader war. The Obama administration has formalized ties with the group.
In a shocking first, the State Department will now allow diplomats to deal directly with Muslim Brotherhood party officials in Cairo, where the international organization is based.
The terror-supporting group — whose credo is “Jihad is our way, and dying in the cause of Allah is our highest hope” — was formally banned by the secular Mubarak regime. Now it threatens to take power when elections are held in September.
