Obama Picks Wrong Side: State Dept held meetings with group with close ties to The Muslim Brother, a known terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel

Here’s another indicator Obama hates the state of Israel.  He rather break bread with people whose leader, Mohamed Morsi, said Israel’s descendents came from Apes and Pigs.  How can anybody associate with people who think like that?  Apparently, the Obama regime doesn’t have a problem with them.  And that speaks volumes about Obama’s true character. 

Washington Free Beacon reports the State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.

One member of the delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which he held up the Islamic group’s notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page.

That delegation member, Waleed Sharaby, is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Brotherhood.

The delegation also includes Gamal Heshmat, a leading member of the Brotherhood, and Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member who served as a parliamentarian from Luxor.

Sharaby, the Brotherhood-aligned judge, flashed the Islamist group’s popular symbol in his picture at the State Department and wrote in a caption: “Now in the U.S. State Department. Your steadfastness impresses everyone,” according to an independent translation of the Arabic.

Another member of the delegation, Maha Azzam, confirmed during an event hosted Tuesday by the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID)—another group accused of having close ties to the Brotherhood—that the delegation had “fruitful” talks with the State Department.

Maha Azzam confirms that ‘anti-coup’ delegation, which includes 2 top [Muslim Brothers], had ‘fruitful’ conversations at State Dept,” Egypt expert Eric Trager tweeted.

Assam also said that the department expressed openness to engagement, according to one person who attended the event.

Damaging the Democrat Brand: Sheldon Silver to resign as Assembly speaker, is Gov Andrew Cuomo next to fall?

NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo probably was never more thankful for this recent snowstorm to temporally take the focus off to what’s happening in NY state politics.  But, reports are he’s freaking out that Feds are coming after him next for abruptly shutting down his own ethics   commission after they got to close to digging up dirt on his own friends like Sheldon Silver. 

Stay tuned!

NY Post reports scandal-scarred Sheldon Silver Tuesday night agreed to resign as the powerful Assembly speaker.

Silver’s decision to quit — amid calls from fellow Democrats to do so — came less than a week after being busted by the feds for allegedly using his public office to amass millions of dollars in kickbacks and no-show jobs.

“I will not impede the process. . . .I believe very deeply in the institution. I hope there will be somebody here to carry on the good work that has been done,” a somber Silver said outside his office in the state capital.
It’s not clear when Silver will formally step down — he could do so at any time — but Assembly Majority leader Joseph Morelle of Rochester said that the Speaker’s seat will be vacant on Monday.

Silver emphasized that while he’s surrendering the speakership, he will remain an assemblyman and continue to represent the Lower East Side as he fights the corruption charges. He maintains he’s innocent and will be vindicated.

“I will be a member of this house. I was elected by my constituents. I do not intend to resign my seat in this house,” said Silver, first elected to the Assembly in 1976.
Assembly Democrats agreed Tuesday night to appoint an interim leader for a couple of weeks to replace Silver.

After more than six hours of closed-door discussions,, Democrats named Majority Leader Joseph Morelle of Rochester as their leader through Feb. 10.

Those jockeying to become the next speaker were concerned that installing Morelle — an ally of Gov. Cuomo — the acting leader for an extended period would give him an unfair advantage in the final vote down the road. That’s why the contenders fought to limit Morelle’s tenure as temporary speaker to just two weeks.

Top contenders for the permanent leadership spot include Carl Heastie of The Bronx, Cathy Nolan of Queens and Joe Lentol of Brooklyn. Keith Wright of Manhattanis also in the mix, as is Morelle.
Silver, 70, was re-elected speaker earlier this month. He was on his way to becoming the longest serving speaker in New York history before getting busted by US Attorney Preet Bharara for allegedly “monetizing” his position.

“For many years, New Yorkers have asked the question: How could Speaker Silver, one of the most powerful men in all of New York, earn millions of dollars in outside income without deeply compromising his ability to honestly serve his constituents? Today, we provide the answer: He didn’t,” Bharara said.

Clueless in Washington: Obama drops plan to end tax breaks for popular college savings accounts

I guarantee that Obama with all his so-called education had no clue that taxing these college plans hurts the middle class.  It proves he’s clueless to the real world Libs don’t live in.   

President Obama has dropped his plan to end tax breaks for popular college savings accounts known as 529s, sources told Fox News on Tuesday according to Fox News.

The decision comes in the wake of stern criticism from Republicans and pleas from top Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, to drop the plan.

The 529s, which allow college savings to grow tax-free, mostly are used by upper-middle- and middle-class families. Low-income families typically don’t have thousands of dollars saved up for college, while very wealthy families are more likely to have trust funds in place for their children’s education.

Administration officials had claimed last week that they were going after the 529 accounts because they unfairly benefit high-income people. Under the proposed change, Americans eventually would have had to pay taxes on the earnings when they were withdrawn.

Gay teacher Michael Landreth at Clover High South Carolina arrested for having sex with 16 yr male student, supplied alcohol

Gay teachers are getting into the act of having sex with students as much as straight ones.  Who knew?  I thought Gays can only be victims. 

Herald Online reports a Clover High School math teacher and coach had sex with a student and provided him with alcohol at the teacher’s home last summer, arrest warrants released Tuesday allege.

Michael Landreth, 24, was arrested on Monday and charged with sexual battery and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office. He was released from the York County Detention Center several hours later on a $4,000 bond.

The incidents between Landreth and the 16-year-old boy occurred last August or September at Landreth’s home on Valley Forge Drive in Lake Wylie, the warrants allege.

Landreth’s charge of sexual battery notes it was “without force or coercion,” meaning the sexual activity was consensual. South Carolina law states that sexual relations between a teacher and a student who is 16 or 17 is a felony regardless of consent, punishable by up to five years in prison.
