WIFLI Briefing for Sep 23, 2012 - It's NOT just about the economy, stupid!

So, here we are, not too far from the most important election in our history.

In an election 32 years ago, there was a Republican that came on strong about the economy, but also, had a view of our foreign policy that resonated with the American people, which is what really won an election against the incumbent Democrat President, Jimmy Carter. Of course, that was Ronald Reagan. Yes, our economy did come around after the election of Reagan, but the economy was really not the issue that decided the race. It was about national security and our foreign policy. Yes, after a few years of Jimmy Carter, the economy was in shambles. But what really ended up making the difference for Reagan was Carter's foreign policy, and namely, the American hostages in Iran.

Until now, the Republican strategy had been to concentrate on the economy. And Mitt Romney was losing on that issue, being that he is so rich and unable to relate to the Middle Class, according to the Obama campaign. However, with all the things going on in the Middle East, the Romney campaign would be foolish not to capitalize on Obama's weakness - foreign policy - and right now is the time to do that.

Being the citizen journalist that I am, the rebel in the Breitbart Army, I'm going to show you some videos in this blog post that brought me to realize that it is not just about the economy.  We'll start with the following video, where we witness the absolute failure of Obama's foreign policy:

But it wasn't until I heard what Paul Ryan said in a campaign speech in Florida yesterday (Saturday, Sep 22, 2012) that I realized I wasn't alone in thinking that there needs to be more about issues other than the economy, especially with Obama winning in the Class Warfare battlefield.

The stories you will see below were right on the money at a very early stage after the attacks on our embassies in the Middle East. It is time for the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, to emphasize the foreign policy issue. I'm just sayin'...

Welcome to this edition of Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing!

What is WIFLI?
You may be wondering what the acronym "WIFLI" means. I started out by calling these issues the Time 2 Escape Daily, but that didn't work out very well. I quickly learned that putting these issues together on a daily basis was a task I was unable to accomplish. To replace "Daily" in the title, I borrowed the acronym WIFLI, which literally means "When I Feel Like It." Putting together a post on this blog WIFLI works much better for my schedule, and for the higher quality of each issue that is eventually published!

It all started when the Obama administration tried to put the blame for the violence in Egypt and Libya on an obscure video.

Anti-Islam Filmmaker Donated Million Dollars To Obama Campaign
From Breitbart's Big Hollywood ~ By John Nolte ~ Published Sep 15, 2012

Blame the movie.

Blame the movie.

Blame the movie.

Even though "the movie" was on YouTube for months prior to the collective indignation of thousands of Middle Eastern Islamists all coming together on the eleventh anniversary of September 11th (through a wild coincidence, no doubt), we are being told by our government and our media overlords that we must blame the movie.

You see, if we blame the movie for the burning of our foreign outposts and the brutal murders of four Americans (including our Libyan ambassador who was reportedly raped), we won't blame the burners and the looters and the murderers and the rapists.

You see, if we blame the movie for the Middle East burning, we won't blame the Islamists who are doing the burning and looting and raping and murdering.

Which means we won't further connect the dots and blame Obama's failed Middle East policy; the Obama Doctrine of backing away from the region and allowing events to unfold as America stands idly by -- as the Islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood grab hold of power in Egypt, a country that was once our largest and closest ally.

The real reason for the violence in Libya
White House spokesman Jay Carney and U.N. Ambassador Rice try to explain the violence in Libya, and elsewhere in the Middle East, by blaming the video (movie). It turns out that the attacks in Libya, killing four of our embassy staff, including the Ambassador to Libya, was a coordinated terrorist attack on 9/11/12.

And, yes, Obama's foreign policy has resulted in the Middle East going up in flames.

Obama's foreign policy now in flames
Exclusive: Tom Tancredo tells prez the world isn't a 'fairyland of cosmic brotherhood'
From WND Commentary ~ By Tom Tancredo ~ Published Sep 14, 2012

The horrific events of Sept. 11, 2012, in Egypt and Benghazi were a logical and predictable result of appeasement policies that began with Obama’s 2009 speech in Cairo apologizing for America’s past insensitivities to the hopes and beliefs of the Muslim faith.

Obama chose last Tuesday, the 11th anniversary of the 2001 murder of over 3,000 Americans by a team of radical Islamists, to send a formal message to the world: “The U.S. will never be at war with Islam.” At that moment a crowd of over 2,000 Islamists were attacking the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, breaching its wall and burning the American flag.

What was the first response of the Obama government to this attack on our Cairo embassy and the failure of the Egyptian government to protect our sovereign soil? The embassy issued an apology for the actions of private individuals in the U.S. who put a film on YouTube that insults Islam and the Prophet Muhammad.

It took the Obama White House almost 12 hours to disavow that apology and over 24 hours for Obama to talk directly with Egyptian President Morsi to elicit an apology and a promise of increased protection for the embassy. However, the apologies continue: The White House has asked YouTube to review the controversial film to see if it meets its standards. Has the administration ever done this for any other privately produced 14-minute film?

  1. Obama's reelection was predetermined. It doesn't matter what Romney or Ryan did, nor who won the nomination. The country has been hijacked, and the only way to retake it is to put it out of business. We do that by trading our legal tender for tangible assets and facilitating transactions via escrow involving a third-party company based in a different country

    If we continue to pay them, they'll continue to take our money and use it for advancing the causes of evil.
