What You Need to Know about Libya’s Dictator Muammar Qadhafi

2011 March 20

Born in 1942 near Sirte, Libya, Mu’ammar al-Qadhafi has been the despotic leader of Libya since 1969.

Despite al-Qadhafi’s recent international rehabilitation, the Libyan leader remains resistant to reform and intolerant of dissent. His ultimate goal—preservation of power—remains unchanged. His decision to abandon his weapons of mass destruction program was not a moral epiphany but rather a calculated attempt to launder his image in order to earn him an exemption from the U.S. effort to democratize the Middle East. So far, his strategy is working. The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, for example, has licensed companies to enter into business with Libya.[1] Washington’s policy toward Libya is counterproductive, however. People across the Middle East juxtapose U.S. rhetoric regarding terrorism and dictatorship with the White House embrace of Libya and conclude that the Bush administration is insincere. read more…

Is there such a thing as deficit terrorism? Howard Dean thinks so.

Yesterday, former presidential contender and anti-capitalist Howard Dean expressed serious concern over the federal deficit, saying that, in the long run, the deficit poses a greater danger to the U.S. than al-Qaeda! Of course, this new-found fiscal hawkishness was in reference to Dean’s opposition to tax cuts for the wealthy, and not, say, for unprecedented, unfunded entitlements like universal state-administered health care (which Dean supports). But let’s not dwell.

Among the many gaffes Dean has graced us with over his political career, the most perplexing involve the former Vermont governor’s preoccupation with race. During his 2004 presidential campaign, Dean accused Republicans of attacking the rights of minorities (while lamenting the Bush administration’s divisiveness). At a Democratic National Committee meeting with the Black Congressional Caucus, Dean boasted: “You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here.” And this is a man who claims to respect minorities?

With the DREAM Act supposedly being “shelved” in the Senate, it looks as though America has avoided another amnesty debacle — but don’t count the bill out too quickly.

The open-borders and extremist immigration lobbies have worked tirelessly to achieve this amnesty foothold, and they will not let it go without a fight. One vocal supporter of the DREAM Act has been America’s Voice, a pro-amnesty lobbying group heavily financed by George Soros. America’s Voice views most American immigration laws as cruel and inhumane and demonizes border control practices regularly. Among its other exploits, America’s Voice launched a vicious campaign against CNN personality Lou Dobbs, which led to his departure from the network.  Afterwards, America’s Voice claimed this incident as a victory.

DISCOVERTHENETWORKS: Katrina vanden Heuvel

2010 December 8

Leftist Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation, recently said she thought she detected a whiff of “Kenya socialism” in President Barack Obama’s tax-rate extension deal. We’re not sure — but is that racist? Could Rush Limbaugh have gotten away with the same?

This is not the first time vanden Heuvel has made public remarks that were a bit regrettable. Appearing on Hardball in 2002, vanden Heuvel boasted that she lived in Harlem and therefore understood the poor. In fact, vanden Heuvel lived in a multi-million dollar townhouse in a wealthy section of Morningside Heights. To read more about the russophile editor, visit Discover the Networks.

Greenpeace stunt backfires in Russia.

Winter is upon us, and many parts of the nation are blanketed in heavy of snow. Winters seem to be as inclement as ever, yet the global warming alarmists still do not waver in their insistence that the world is on a death march toward disaster.

Green organizations have much more on their agenda than saving the planet, however. Intergovernmental global warming regulation is also the key to global wealth redistribution. The executive director of Greenpeace International, Kumi Naidoo, has said that global warming and global poverty are two sides of the same coin. Too bad groups like Greenpeace also oppose the global poor’s use of fossil fuels to pull themselves out of poverty.

Not as politically mobile as she used to be, Michelle Obama has been out of the spotlight in all but perhaps the most innocuous capacities (sweet potatoes, anyone?). Michelle Obama and her extremist views turned out to be incredible liabilities for the Obama administration — views that she has held tightly for all of her adult life. As a college student, Michelle Obama accused Princeton University (that Confederate swamp) of incubating latent racism. As late as the 2008, Mrs. Obama characterized America as a place where people cling to racial stereotypes and “feel justified in [their] own ignorance.”  To read Michelle Obama’s own history of racial stereotypes and ignorance, visit her complete profile at Discover the Networks.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is anxious to bring the DREAM Act (amnesty for students) up for a vote during the 2010 lame duck session. Does it stand a chance?

During Reid’s decades-long career as senator of Nevada, he has been embroiled in a number of ethics controversies. Being a fan of earmarks (Reid was named 2008 “Porker of the Year” by Citizens Against Government Waste, along with Nancy Pelosi), Reid once secured hundreds of millions of dollars in earmarks — which then skyrocketed the value of his private property. For more details on Harry Reid’s exploitation of the system, visit Discover the Networks.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange thinks Hillary Clinton should resign? The odds are better that Julian Assange will resign — at least temporarily…after being apprehended for “sex crimes.”

It wasn’t that long ago that Hillary Clinton was quite cozy with radical activists like Assange, instead of being reproved by then. The First Radical Lady’s far-left associations range from Saul Alinsky to George Soros, with a lifetime of zealotry in between. Few are aware, for instance, that Clinton got personally involved in the legal defense of Black Panther members in the ’70s; or that she claimed school vouchers would lead parents to send their children to white supremacist and jihad schools.

WikiLeaks has struck again. Although most are of the mind that the website and its deranged proprietor, Julian Assange, undermine U.S. and world security, one also wonders if America’s preeminent papers play a role in this as well. The New York Times, for instance, was all too happy to give readers an early preview of Assange’s treasonous leaks and help generate buzz for his website. Would the more ethical alternative be to abstain? Or is this an unreasonable expectation for any news outlet?

The New York Times, in fact, has a long history of featuring less than noble subject matter. In the 1930s, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Times writer Walter Duranty acted as a propaganda mouthpiece for Joseph Stalin, even concealing knowledge of Stalin’s mass killings. As early as 2006, Times reporter Jayson Blaire was fired for fabricating an untold number of facts in his articles. Read the complete profile for The New York Times at Discover the Networks.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is not backing down from the airport security pat-down debacle. Unfortunately, this is not the first time Napolitano has found herself on the wrong side of a — well — “sensitive” matter. Few remember that Napolitano provided legal counsel to Anita Hill, the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment as part of the Democrats’ famous effort to keep the first black supreme court justice off the bench.

It may be too harsh to say that Napolitano has “mismanaged” her new position as DHS secretary — we just wish she approached the porous border America shares with the Mexican narco-state with the same seriousness as she approaches access to enplaning children’s underwear.

Maxine Waters’ House ethics trial was postponed indefinitely. It is not exactly a boon for Waters, as her trial is being postponed because new evidence has been found in the case. Unfortunately for Waters (but perhaps fortunately for America), the trial may very well resume under a Republican-controlled House.

Waters may have avoided justice in the interim, but there is no way she can escape her shameful record as an America-hating, tyranny-enthralled Castroite. Who would say that she wasn’t quite sure whether the 1992 Rodney King riots — in which 58 people were killed — were “uncalled-for”? Maxine Waters. And you can read the complete story at Discover the Networks.

Glenn Beck caught a lot of flack, recently, for bringing attention to the fact that, as an adolescent, radical left-wing billionaire George Soros helped confiscate the property of his fellow Jews during the Nazi occupation of Hungary. A heartless exploitation of a tragic childhood event on the part of Beck? Hardly.

The significance of this event in Soros’s life is that he has directly expressed a lack of guilt for his participation. Instead, he describes having a feeling of detachment. Beyond heartless, Soros’s firsthand account of the heinous event approaches…pathological.

So much more on Soros, including the recent revelation that he will be bankrolling a documentary celebrating the leftists who conspired to napalm the 2008 GOP convention, can be read at Discover the Networks.
