” A young German woman has been killed while fighting alongside Kurdish forces against Islamic State militants in northeastern Syria, according to a monitoring group.

  The woman, named by some sources as Ivana Hoffman, was killed on Sunday near the town of Tal Tamer where she was assisting the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in their struggle against the IS fighters.

  She is the third Westerner killed among Kurdish ranks in Syria.

  Hoffman, who reportedly went by the Turkish nom de guerre Avasin Tekosin Gunes, identified herself as a member of the Marxist–Leninist Communist Party (MLKP), a Hoxhaist party based in Turkey where it is listed by the government as a terrorist organisation.

          A photo circulated by MLKP supporters, showing Hoffman holding the MLKP newpaper ‘Atilim’ (‘The Leap’), location uknown.

  A statement on the MLKP’s website lauding Hoffman’s final hours in Syria reads: “Her dreams are our dreams, her path is our path and her memory is our honour. Comrade Avasin Tekosin Günes is immortal.”

  A video released by the MLKP in January purported to show Hoffman (whose faced is obscured) in the Kurdish region of Syria, also called Rojava, describing her reasons for fighting:

“We are here on the front – IS territory is right behind us,” she tells the camera.”

De Blasio Is A Superb Mayor, Says Taxpayer-Funded YouTube Videos

 

 

 

 

 

” The mayor’s taxpayer-funded p.r. machine has spit out 250 YouTube videos since he took office — including some slickly produced messages that look a lot like campaign ads.

  Complete with voice-overs, soaring music and interviews with New Yorkers waxing poetic about Hizzoner, the videos are created by former de Blasio campaign workers now employed by City Hall.

“ I feel like Bill de Blasio and [wife] Chirlane [McCray] have brought the love back to New York City,” an unnamed woman gushes in one video while waiting to tour Gracie Mansion three days after his inauguration.

  Another video celebrates his first 100 days in office with staged testimonials from New Yorkers, including one by a carwash employee applauding the mayor’s signing a paid-sick-leave law.”

‘I’m Not The Young Muslim Socialist I Used To Be!’ Obama Blasts His Critics And Even Mocks Michelle’s Hair At Correspondents’ Dinner

 

 

 

 

” Pictures of him with Michelle-style bangs, quips about Jay-Z and sideswipes at the media and his political foes helped Barack Obama win laughs at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The traditional send-up speech saw the President earn some laughter at his own expense but also land some funny blows against the media and the Republican Party. 

The President opened with a soft joke about his time in office but increasingly moved onto more controversial territory – even joking about ‘burning books with Michelle Bachmann’.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This explains a lot

  ” While the President continues to bristle at the notion that people should pay attention to his “You didn’t build that” comments and his
supporters insists we’re reading too much into it, a look at Barack Obama’s younger self tells a
different story. Just how does he view business owners and capitalists in general? One peek into
the inner thought process which formed his world view can be found in a book released earlier this year by David Maraniss titled, Barack Obama: The Story. I confess I missed this one when it came out, but a friend has been reading
it and pointed out some rather telling passages, particularly in light of the recent flap. But I wasn’t the only one to notice, nor the first. The
Washington Examiner’s Byron York picked up on it last month .”

” “I didn’t say that” is the new “You didn’t build that.”

” On the heels of a new ad, which attempts to clarify his now infamous remarks about business and success, Politico reports
President Obama vented about attacks at a Seattle fund raiser:

“I have to tell you, I generally have
patience with what the other side says about me, that’s a requirement of this job,” Obama said during a $5,000-per-
plate fundraiser here, according to the pool report.
“And if you don’t like folks talking about you, you probably shouldn’t run for president. The one thing I do have no patience for is this argument that somehow what I’m criticizing is success… I want to promote success,” Obama said.”

He just doesn’t get that we don’t want government to ” promote success” . That is the problem . Government has no business picking winners and losers.

  Just get the hell out of our way .
We already succeed IN SPITE OF government .

More walking back the cat

All your earnings are belong to us .

“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.”

Video at the link . View it and puke .

The man’s true colors are really starting to show through . Add to this sort of statement his skyrocketing foodstamp enrollment and the current effort to gut welfare reform , oh and let’s not forget  “Julia” and  his list of accomplishments reads like something Oren Boyle and Wesley Mouch would have attempted .

Hmm. Obama Headlined a DEMOCRAT SOCIALISTS OF AMERICA Event in 1996

In new biography , Obama asks: Am I an American?

” But Obama was ambitious. Appalled by the “dirty deeds” of “Reagan and his minions” (as he wrote in “Dreams from My Father”), Obama became increasingly
interested in, as Maraniss writes, “gaining power in order to change things.” He couldn’t do that as an international guyhanging around with his Pakistani friends;
he needed to become an American.
So he did.
One of those Pakistani friends,
Beenu Mahmood, saw a major change in Obama. Mahmood calls Obama “the most deliberate person I ever met in terms of
constructing his own identity,”

Need we question where his loyalties lie ? Obama the first “citizen of the world ” elected to run our country …. Shame
