After the Arab Spring, now comes the Arab Summer, which pushes the reset button on hope and change for the people of Egypt, who saw their revolution usurped by Islamists: [emphasis added to quotes]

Secular and liberal factions trying to install one of their own as Egypt’s new prime minister collided into strong resistance Sunday from the sole Islamist faction that backed the military’s ouster of President Mohammed Morsi, reflecting the difficulties in building a broad coalition behind a new leadership.  Continue reading

Another day, another set of questions about the many discrepancies in this evolving story about the Boston Marathon Islamist terrorist attack.  Here are just a few:

After authorities claimed that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev engaged in a shootout with police from his hiding place in a boat, they now say that no weapons were foundDzhokhar was unarmed, even though early news reports claimed he had “several weapons.”

Last week, the Senate voted down expanded background checks, which would have covered all “advertised” private gun sales.  After the Boston Massacre of 4/15/2013, gun control advocates began predictably to call once again for more gun control legislation, and added control of the purchase of black powder, which allows a person to make or reload ammunition.  As many news reports have pointed out:   the Muslim Tsarnaev brothers had no permits to carry weapons, and yet they did, nonetheless.  Continue reading

MOSCA: The Obama Drone (Open Thread)

Thanks to an anonymous tip, WTPOTUS has breaking news about the MOSCA (Morphable Obama Stealth Cybernetic Agent)–the very first miniature drone developed by the Barack Obama administration. This fly-like drone actually flies and, exactly like a regular housefly, “drones” (on and on and on, like the president).

Unlike some other drone technology (e.g., Darpa’s Hybrid Insect Micro Electromechanical Systems), which inserts mechanics inside of a real insect, the MOSCA was designed to be a totally self-replicating cybernetic organism (or cyborg). Thanks to nano- and bio-technology, a MOSCA can thrive on crap (again, like the president), gathering all the raw material it needs to replicate from sewage. Groundbreaking technology allows the drone to lay “eggs” that develop into cyborg-maggots and then into full-sized MOSCAs, whenever necessary.  Continue reading
