    Shirley Sherrod Sues Andrew Breitbart
    Andrew Breitbart, the owner of several conservative Web sites, was served at the conference on Saturday with a lawsuit filed by Shirley Sherrod, the former Agriculture Department employee who lost her job last year over a video that Mr. Brietbart posted at his site biggovernment.com.

    The video was selectively edited so that it appeared Ms. Sherrod was confessing she had discriminated against a farmer because he was white. In the suit, which was filed in Washington on Friday, Ms. Sherrod says the video has damaged her reputation and prevented her from continuing her work.

    Mr. Breitbart said in a statement that he “categorically rejects the transparent effort to chill his constitutionally protected free speech.”

    • Dear Andrew Breitbart

      Go straight to hell. I hope you are sued to the knees! You don’t get to lie & slander someone’s good name to further your political agenda, mofo!

      Pay the Piper!

      Breitbart has every right to be a moron. It is his right to be stupid! He is entitled to “free speech,” but this particular “free speech’ will become very costly at some point!

      I recall some years ago the lawyers for Morris Dees sued an organization that clearly violated a young man’s civil rights—(they LYNCHED him)–and lost ALL….including the very building where the plot was hatched—to the victims mother.

      Small compensation—but ONE MORE HATE GROUP WAS ELIMINATED!

      Let’s see if FOXPHONYNEWS contributes to Breitbart’s defense –(if a defense is possible)–or if they crawl in the hole they have dug for themselves.
      I expect Ms. Sherrod will emerge from all of this a VERY wealthy woman—-while Mr. Scumoftheearth begs for mercy!

  3. Mubarak Slams US in Phone Cal With Israeli Lawmaker

    Haaretz reports on a phone call Mubarak made with israeli lawmaker Benjamin Ben-Eliezer a day before he resigned the presidency.

    “He had very tough things to say about the United States,” said Ben-Eliezer, a member of the Labor Party who has held talks with Mubarak on numerous occasions while serving in various Israeli coalition governments.

    “He gave me a lesson in democracy and said: ‘We see the democracy the United States spearheaded in Iran and with Hamas, in Gaza, and that’s the fate of the Middle East,'” Ben-Eliezer said.

    “‘They may be talking about democracy but they don’t know what they’re talking about and the result will be extremism and radical Islam,'” he quoted Mubarak as saying

  4. Egypt Military Leaders Dissolve Parliament, Suspend Constitution

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/13/egypt-military-parliament-dissolved-constitution-suspended_n_822497.html

    CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s military leaders dissolved parliament and suspended the constitution on Sunday, meeting two key demands of protesters who have been keeping up pressure for immediate steps to push forward the transition to democratic, civilian rule after forcing Hosni Mubarak out of power.
    I
    n their latest communique, the military rulers that took over when Mubarak stepped down Friday, said they will run the country for six months, or until presidential and parliament elections can be held.

    The military leaders said they were forming a committee to amend the constitution and set the rules for popular referendum to endorse the amendments.

    Both the lower and upper houses of parliament are being dissolved. The last parliamentary elections in November and December were heavily rigged by the ruling party, virtually shutting out any opposition representation.

    The caretaker Cabinet, which was appointed by Mubarak shortly after the mass pro-democracy protests began on Jan. 25, will remain in place until a new Cabinet in formed – a step that is not expected to happen until after elections.

    The ruling military council reiterated that it would abide by all of Egypt’s international treaties agreed in the Mubarak era, most importantly the peace treaty with Israel.

    Egyptian soldiers clear protesters from Tahrir Square, as pockets of tension bubble up in Cairo

    CAIRO – Soldiers evicted demonstrators from parts of Tahrir Square on Sunday as they tried to restore a measure of normalcy to the Egyptian capital. But tensions flared elsewhere as police and civil servants took advantage of the country’s revolutionary tumult to press their own demands for change.

    Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq presided over the Egyptian government’s first cabinet meeting since President Hosni Mubarak’s abrupt resignation Friday. “Our concern now in the cabinet is security, to bring security back to the Egyptian citizen,” he said at a press conference.

    The Egyptian military has been in control of the country since Mubarak’s departure. But military chiefs have ordered the civilian government to remain in place in a caretaker role until a new government is formed.

    As daylight broke, soldiers dismantled tents from the makeshift camps that have occupied Tahrir Square since Jan. 25, when protests erupted in Cairo. Some weary demonstrators evacuated voluntarily. Others stood their ground or scuffled with soldiers, though both sides generally refrained from brute force.
