they should have offered college credit for this seminar, however they would have to spot the cliffnotes to the folks at CNN and HLN

We need to have an Egyptian like Tea Party in D.C.. Maybe some time when Obama isn't on vacation.

Is Obozo going to give a speech now that "The future must not belong to those who slander the Muslim Brotherhood?"

Say good-bye to Obozo's so-called "Arab spring" . . .

Following reports of tanks heading in the direction of a pro-Morsi rally near Cairo University, the state-run al-Ahram newspaper says that Egyptian security forces are preparing to clear the protest.

Looks like things will get a little sporty tonight in Cairo.

Via AJ:

Egypt's Al-Ahram newspaper reported that arrest warrants had been issued for 300 Brotherhood members, and the security forces were preparing to clear a pro-Mursi rally near Cairo University.

The state news agency MENA reported that the police were continuing its efforts to arrest "a number of members of the Muslim Brotherhood who are accused of inciting violence and disturbing general security and peace."

About two years overdue, but better late than never I guess.

Any warrants for the Muslim Sisterhood?

It was encouraging to see five sitting US Congressmen – led by Rep. Michele Bachmann – send a letter to the Office of the Inspector General at the State Department recently; it made reference to the familial relationships Huma Abedin – Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff and closest advisor – has to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Abedin has much fewer than six degrees of separation (1 or 2 depending on your interpretation) from Egypt’s newly electedMuslim Brotherhood president – Mohammed Mursi.

One year ago, when Walid discovered the names of 63 leaders who make up the Muslim Sisterhood – which is essentially nothing more than the female version of the Brotherhood – we learned that Huma’s mother, Saleha, was one of those leaders. Little attention has been paid to the other 62 leaders, however. One of them is Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of Mursi. Both are members of the Guidance Bureau, which proves fallacious, the claim that Najla is just an innocent and naïve spouse.

This would make Huma’s mother a close, personal colleague of the wife of a virulently anti-Semitic racist who has officially been declared the first president-elect of post-Mubarak Egypt.

Notice how the MFM has conveniently * overlooked * the fact that St. Trayvon's birth mother, Sybrina Fulton, divorced Mr. Martin when Trayvon was a toddler.

St. Trayvon was actually raised from three years of age by his stepmother.

O'Mara is likely to gently bring that out during his cross on Monday.

I think Old Lurker should march down to that teak wreck and interview long-face about the situation.

Jane -

O'Mara is likely to gently bring that out during his cross on Monday.

He's got to be careful. Trayvon also was under school suspension for stealing (I think) which is the only reason he was at that location and we've fund out recently that he had quite a record which was covered up by the police.

But it cuts both ways. You have to be very careful when you cross examine a grieving mother. However if she hasn't been around him in a decade it would seem odd to be able to identify his scream.

MOM is great at cross exam. If anyone can do it, he can.

I would be unsurprised by a de minimus cross by O'Mara of Ms Trademark followed by calling Mrs. Zimmerman (mother) to open the defense. It would be excellent theater and allow the jury the weekend to weigh the testimony.

O'Mara could wrap the defense up in 2-3 days next week (after the Kleagle denies the motion for a directed verdict). There may be a procedural problem in calling Mrs. Zimmerman if the primary defense is self defense but I'd sure like to see her testify right after Ms Trademark.

Wonder if any of these guys might be on any of those 300 MB arrest warrants?

Danube on iPad

I assume the defense can call GZ's mom as a character witness if they want to, but that could open some troublesome doors.

Ditto with Trayvon's mom. If she says anything like "he would never throw the first punch," then it's wide open. But if all she says is "that's my baby screaming," that could be some powerful stuff.

Patriot4Freedom

Jane - You're absolutely right, MOM has a delicate task ahead on Monday. It is always hard to examine a victim's family member, especially a grieving mother.

Adding to that, MOM has to try to finesse-in the statement Tracy Martin made to police - that the voice on the 911 call crying for help was NOT his son's voice.

(Sorry for the delayed post. Typhus-pad was busy eating earlier attempts to reply)

Jane -

Did anyone here ever try any criminal cases?

MarkO

Given the trial so far, Trayvon's mom might take the stand and say she's just not certain.

The jury already anticipates, from prior testimony, that she will ID the call. If that is all she does, I would stand and say, "No questions."

I suspect, however, she will make up something more.

I doubt that "crazy ass cracker perv" was included in BDLR's coaching of Miss Jeantel and I will be entirely unsurprised should Ms Trademark swing for the fences under cross examination. After all, it's pay day and the home team is down by a bunch.

At OSI our shop was in the criminal division but our cases were tried in civil ct before judges only. The denaturalization and deportation proceedins were concerned quasi criminal I guess, Jane. We always gave suspects Miranda warnings and didn't question them without offering them the right to have counsel present.

Just awoke and turning on CNN I see Cristine Amonpour saying something very close to this:

Yes, the Muslim Brotherhead Government was terrible;
Yes, it was incapable of governing;
Yes it was in essence a failed State;
and Yes, Morsi was Izlamicizing the Government by appointing his cronies to positions of power...

My questions, since I haven't followed this as much as you guys and I hate CNN so I don't watch it much---were we getting such honest reports of how bad Morsi's MB Govt was previous to him getting canned tonight, or was most of this not previously reported by our domestic MSM Networks, and now only stated truthfully since he is gone and they have to explain why he is booted out of power?

Back to catch-up to see if you've already covered this in the threads.

Much appreciated.

I think you know the answer to that, daddy. It would take an act of willful blindness to ignore the scarcity of food in Egypt, which btw didn't begin with Morsi. Ignoring starvation isn't anything new to the MFM when it doesn't fit their narrative; Duranty got a Pulitzer for doing it.

I love Bachmann. I do. But her Gardasil claims in the last Repub primaries are enough to make her character peccable.

Gus,

I was actually just commenting on the awesome stupidity required for someone to use an easily tracked device to broadcast their feelings and location to security forces best noted for using roasting on a spit over a low fire as an interrogation method. I wonder how many of the MB boys last tweet consisted of the Arabic equivalent of "later - sum1 at the dor"

Whenever I see one of those dimwitted "History isn't made by well behaved women" bumperstickers, I'm positive whatever crone owns that goes full Linda Blair at the mention of Bachmann or Palin and doesn't feel self conscious doing it.

Yeah, I'm not giving Michele a 100% ranking. If she has national aspirations she hasn't handled some things as well as she could imo. But nothing she's done has had such long term negative implications as what Rubio's done.

Gus

Rick, I love your comments. You are wise and bright.

Thanks narciso and Captain,

That was my impression upon hearing Amonpour lay out the anti-Morsi case so simply and straightforward.

I guess that 10 years after CNN's head Eason Jordan (The News We Kept To Ourselves) told us that CNN was lying to us about Saddam's regime in order to maintain CNN's "access" it's still doing that same trick, with the added incentive of CNN trying to make Obama and Hillary look like competent World Leaders.

Why isn't this surprising:

Officials of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said a gathering of its supporters near a mosque in a Cairo suburb was fired on for several minutes early on Thursday.

About an hour later, Reuters correspondents found the site calm.

It would appear that the Army's plan is to isolate and then ignore the Brotherhood boys. That way, when violence does break out, they can blame it on the Brotherhood.
