Ted Cruz says the FAA's flight ban was Obama's secret anti-Israel plot...wtf

http://www.vox.com/2014/7/24/5933557/ted-cruz-israel-faa-flight-ban

"The Obama administration is the most anti-Israel administration this government has ever had," Cruz said. He asked why air traffic to Israel, rather than Pakistan, Yemen, or Ukraine was cut off. "The timing was at the exact moment Kerry was there trying to strong-arm Israel into stopping their efforts to shut down Hamas’s rockets and tunnels," he continued. Essentially, Cruz argued, Obama was trying to choke off Israel's tourism industry until it consented to a Gaza cease-fire.

Yet Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) saw something even darker at work. "The facts suggest that President Obama has just used a federal regulatory agency to launch an economic boycott on Israel, in order to try to force our ally to comply with his foreign-policy demands," he said in a Wednesday afternoon statement

Wow oh wow, I was shocked but not shocked.

Tonight, my daughter came to me and told me she wanted to change her name ..legally of course. She downloaded the form and had the money to do so. She told that she no longer wanted to carry the name of her aunt who has shown she doesn't love her and has shown for years her disregard for others. She said she thought long and hard about it and her decision was final. She asked me how did I feel about it.I told her it was a very big decision and I felt she made a huge step in maturity. Truthfully, I regretted naming her after this relative. My daughter told me she needed to know how I felt cause I gave her that name and she didn't want to hurt me. She said being named after someone should be an honor not shame or resentful.I told her she's an adult now and I was very proud of her. It'll turn heads and will be the family water cooler topic for years to come. Oh well.

White flags planted on Brooklyn Bridge, American flags missing as mystery deepens

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/american-flags-stolen-atop-brooklyn-bridge-cops-article-1.1875673

Two high-flying American flags were surreptitiously swiped from atop the Brooklyn Bridge and mysteriously replaced early Tuesday with a pair of white banners, police said.

The substitute flags were flying by sunrise from atop the 273-foot towers on the venerable bridge despite round-the-clock NYPD security on the span.

What remained unclear hours later: who was responsible, what happened to the missing American flags — and how the thieves scaled the towers without drawing any attention.

“There’s no particular nexus to terrorism or politics,” said John Miller, the NYPD’s anti-terrorism czar. “It might be some kind of art project or statement. But we are not sure what that statement is.”

Dick Cheney: The world’s a mess, and it’s Obama’s fault

http://www.euronews.com/2014/07/14/dick-cheney-the-world-s-a-mess-and-it-s-obama-s-fault/

|
More than five years after leaving office, former US Vice President Dick Cheney sees the world in bad shape, especially the Middle East, and he blames President Obama (again) for most of it.Crises in Syria, Iraq, Israel and the Palestinian territories, Ukraine and elsewhere, nuclear capabilities of Iran soon, rapid spread of terrorism: “I don’t like what I see happening”, Cheney said at a lunch hosted by Politico Magazine at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington on Monday.

For Cheney, Obama with his lackluster leadership is the prime suspect responsible for this mess. “He has created a situation in which our friends in the region are scared to death”, Cheney said, quoting Israeli and Arab “friends I have known for 25 years.”Protesters disrupted the on-stage event, shouting that Cheney needed to be held accountable for the war in Iraq.“Dick Cheney — war criminal!” one woman shouted, holding a pink sign and handcuffs. The moderator tried to move on, but the woman continued shouting. “You destroyed Iraq, you’ll destroy this country!” and “Dick Cheney should be arrested!”

In Cheneys world and his minions, the world was at peace before 2008

"2+2=?" by Bob Seger

Yes it's true I am a young man
but I'm old enough to kill
I don't wanna kill nobody
but I must if you so will
And if I raise my hand in question
you just say that I'm a fool
Cause I got the gall to ask you
Can you maybe change the rules
can you stand and call me upstart
Ask what answer can I find, I ain't sayin' I'm a genius
2+2 is on my mind

Well I knew a guy in high school
just an average friendly guy
And he had himself a girlfriend
and you made them say goodbye
Now he's buried in the mud
over foreign jungle land
And his girl just sits and cries
she just doesn't understand
So you say he died for freedom
well if he died to save your lies
Go ahead and call me yellow
2+2 is on my mind

All I know is that I'm young and your rules they are old
If I've got to kill to live
then there's something left untold
I'm no statesman I'm no general
I'm no kid I'll never be
It's the rules not the soldier
that I find the real enemy

I'm no prophet I'm no rebel
I'm just asking you why
I just want a simple answer
why it is I 've got to die
I'm a simple minded guy
2+2 is on my mind

Breaking News on MSNBC right now...

Israel launches ground invasion in Gaza


If this plane was shot down, Obama will be blamed. Who agrees or disagrees?

Guess he has the ability to control where airplanes fly and where missiles point.


There will be a huge rightwing Obama blame festival.McCain, Graham,and Cheney will say Obama is weak and should have attacked Russia.


Fox news hasn't even posted breaking news cause they're busy gathering blame Obama propaganda right now.lol

This just another Obama distraction from the Gaza conflict.'sarcasm'
