    Egypt teeters on brink of overthrow, seven reported killed in clashes

    Egypt teetered on the brink of overthrow late Tuesday after a defiant Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi rejected an ultimatum issued by the military and seven people were reported killed in clashes between his supporters and opponents.
    Defense officials have pledged to intervene if the government does not address public demands and end the political turmoil engulfing Cairo.
    In a speech to the nation broadcast live late Tuesday, Morsi said he would not step down and would protect his "constitutional legitimacy" with his life.
    The deadly clashes came just one day before the deadline set by the military for Morsi and his opponents to work out their differences.

    Security and hospital officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the seven were killed in three separate incidents but gave no further details.
    Morsi said Tuesday he would pursue his own plans for reconciliation between his government and opposition leaders, according to Reuters.

    The Egyptian leader has repeatedly vowed not to quit, saying that street action must not be allowed to remove an elected president. At the same time, Morsi has offered no concessions, although his opponents appear in no mood to accept anything short of his removal.
    His Islamist supporters, some hardliners who belong to formerly armed militant groups, have vowed to defend him.

    Reuters reported that a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) said "everyone" rejected the military declaration.
    "Solutions will be in the framework of the constitution," Yasser Hamza, a member of the FJP's legal committee, told Al Jazeera. "The age of military coups is over."
    The comments came as a foreign ministry official said two spokesmen for Morsi -- Omar Amer and Ihab Fahmy -- have stepped down after nearly five months representing him. On Monday, six of his cabinet members quit.

    Canada has closed its embassy in Cairo, citing security concerns.
    In a highly symbolic move, crowds camped out in Tahrir Square, the birthplace of the 2011 uprising that toppled former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak. They also massed Tuesday outside the Qasr el-Qobba presidential palace where Morsi has been working in recent days, in addition to filling wide avenues outside another palace, and in main squares in other cities.

    Secretary of State John Kerry quietly sends $1.3B to Egypt, waiving U.S. law

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has quietly sent $1.3 billion of military assistance to Egypt — controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood — in defiance of congressional restrictions on dollars going to countries that haven’t yet complied with standards of democracy, a memo revealed.
    U.S. law says that Mr. Kerry should have first ensured that Egypt was on the path toward structured, civilian-based governance — including open, fair elections and policies that uphold basic human rights, like freedom of expression and religion — before sending the money, Reuters reported.

    It is the chaos over there, why sending money to an unstable state?

    The people in both Turkey and Egypt are fed up with the Islamists and Obama.

    Obama is showing his true colors standing with the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt and Islamist Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey.

    Surprising that the US support the Muslim Brotherhood when you check the history of this organization, what they did, and where they are implanted in the Middle Est, it is scary.

    There is a historical relationship between the misdirected dark eugenics and so-called German racial purification doctrines of Hitler and the emerging philosophical evolution of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    It's not so surprising when you consider Obama's Anti-Colonialist and Black Liberation Theology viewpoints. Don't forget as well that Barry Soetoro was raised as a Muslim.

    Well, the Egyptian Army may jump into the fray.
    Will see today and tomorrow how it goes there.
    For sure, a coup by the military would throw the MB into a death spiral.

    Sen. Cruz: Why Is Obama Still Supporting Morsi?

    The United States is "entrenched" as a partner of a repressive, Islamist regime in Egypt and the enemy of its pro-democracy opposition, Sen. Ted Cruz said in a strongly written opinion piece on Wednesday.

    The Texas Republican, in an article for Foreign Policy, calls the United States actions in Egypt, where protesters are demanding the ouster of Muslim President Mohammed Morsi, "one of the most stunning diplomatic failures in recent memory," and demands to know why President Barack Obama is standing behind Morsi.

    "Surely, after our long and lonely search for secular and democratic partners in the Arab world, we could find some common ground with (the protesters,)" said Cruz.

    But instead, Cruz said, the United States is siding with Morsi, a leader whose regime "has an unpleasant tendency to trample on the rights of women, Christians, and Jews — and to stifle the independence of the press and judiciary, ruining the economy in the process."

    Protesters in Egypt are responding, Cruz writes, with anti-American sentiment. The number of embassy personnel has been reduced and a travel warning has been issued for Americans in Egypt as protesters are also carrying signs with slogans like "Obama Supports Terrorism" and "Obama Supports Morsi," and pictures of American ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson, with a large red "X" through her face.

    Cruz said the United States missed its chance to form a strong Middle Eastern alliance when Morsi first took office a year ago.

    Obama could have "expressed strong reservations about a member of the Muslim Brotherhood taking control of the country," at the time, said Cruz. "He should have also been more aggressive about using American aid to extract concessions from the Egyptian government on human rights."

    But instead, Cruz said Obama made a personal call to congratulate Morsi, calling his election a milestone and pledged $1 billion in aid to Egypt.

    Senator Ted Cruz made somne good points, I like this gentleman.

    Now, if buck ofama is such a lover of morsi, we will see if morsi ends up in the usa.

    Funny the media continues to say morsi was the democratically elected president of egypt.
    Somehow, the fact that the vast majority of egyptians want him out makes one wonder just how bad the election was rigged in the favor of morsi.

    This will be fun to watch over the next few days, weeks and months.

    I guess that is only the beginning, wait until the MB reorganize, it could be surprising, particularely when you read about what they are and where they are coming from.

    Alex Jones has an interesting view on the latest Egyptian overthrow.

    He says this is a big blow to the One World Order gang. I'll post the updated video when that becomes available.

    Egyptian troops open fire on Morsi supporters as thousands protest


    Egyptian troops opened fire on supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi marching on a Republican Guard facility Friday. Reuters is reporting three people are dead and several are wounded. The shooting happened as hundreds of Morsi supporters marched on the Guard building, where Morsi was staying at the time of his ouster, before being taken into military custody in an unknown location. The crowd approached a barbed wire barrier where troops were standing guard around the building. When one supporter hung a sign of Morsi on the barrier, the troops tore it down and told the crowd to stay back.
