With just a few short hours to go until the military-coup-deadline, the situation is rapidly moving from bad to worse in Egypt.

Following Reuters reporting that the Muslim Brotherhood's refusal to meet with army officials - "We do not go to invitations (meetings) with anyone. We have a president and that is it," Sky News Arabiya reports that the Egyptian army now completely controls the State TV building.

The counter-revolution will be broadcast on TV....

Hard to keep a ponzi going when there are sooo many holes to plug and soooo little time. Just like Chevy Chase putting chewing gum in a leaking dam...plug one hole and four more start to leak......

Isn't it interesting how the first thing they take is the TV station?

If our demands are not met... We'll run a non-stop Herschel Bernardi movie marathon!

This is all just an elaborate ruse to get everyone's "independence day" to fall in the first week of July. It's kind of how the Christian holidays map nicely to the pagan holidays.

So many people.  Is it a justin bieber concert or something?

pretty much- over 4 days there have been over 91 sexual assaults...certainly one of them must involve a monkey... can we please send Anderson Cooper there again please? And have him take Chris Matthews -so he can get several tingles about the awesomeness of Obarry.

kridkrid's picture

Everyone knows that Anderson Cooper is a Vanderbilt and interned with the CIA after graduating from Yale, I assume. That doesn't have to mean anything, of course, but it's interesting nevertheless..

Freddie's picture

Anderson is part of the g*y Al-CIA-da division out of Georgetown/Langley.   Another Operation Mockingbird puppet.    It would be funny to see Chris Matthews get a military trial and a noose on TV but the US Military is run by MIC and Mika Brezenski's dad's bosses.

The US Top Military brass are more concerned with their pension, golf game, weapons systems budgets and cheezy whores like Jill Kelly the Lebanese sl*t with an Irish name and that Paula Goodwell or what ever her name was.  They got boob jobs and set up dumb generals.  The USA is a joke now.

Americans who watch O-TV and O-Hollywood support being serfs.  Stupid ******g sheep.

The Egyptians learned the power there is in united opposition to tyranny. They are using that knowledge to accomplish again what it was successful in doing just a year ago.

Tyranny is tyranny, and oppression is oppression regardless of the facade it is wrapped in, and the Egyptians seem know it when they see it. Too bad the citizens in the western world don't see it.

Freddie's picture

I admire the Egyptians.  They know what it is to be screwed over for thousands of years.  The fat asses in America are get ready for National Felons League season. 

American generals and admirals are sell outs.  Sold out Americans at Pearl Harbor, Gulf of Tonkin, Civil War, USS Liberty, JFK, Iraq/Afghanistan and other examples.  Those ****ers had no clue on doing their Constitutional duty.

Think you got it backwards. He could only attract this big an audience if he promised to set himself on fire on stage.

That is going to be more like a sprint, or quick jog. Hershel, great actor that he was, was not exactly prolific.

Isn't that what Obama did here?

greatbeard's picture

>> Obama did here?

Well, actually, no.  The press was already fully corporate owned, just like Obama, when he took office.  I think if you take a critical look back, it was the Republican right which championed the consolodation of the press.  You know, you can't stand in the way of higher corpoate profits.  Of course, that was back when we had two parties with two somewhat opposing positions. Now we are one big happy authoritarian corporate fascist state.  If you don't like getting trampled by the jack boots, stay out from underneath them. 

Gert_B_Frobe's picture

Well, not really considerd "taking control". The media sheeped right in there with no issue or fight.

Dr. No's picture

As for the US, Obama already has the TV stations.  He is now working on taking control of FB, which is why the NSA has been caught in the cookie jar...

Crash Overide's picture

The NSA is the tool which the military industrial complex uses to carry out their agenda via blackmailing members of the government and big business. Did you know Zuckerberg is a Rothschild?


Egyptians are a proud people and they want the CIA out of their country.

Good for them, I only wish Americans had enough balls to show up peacefully in the millions to demand removal of the criminals that have taken us over.

In Lithuania in 1991 soviet military seized the TV station too, but people did not give up, actually many did not give a fuck and tried to push tanks out of the way with bare hands... Many got crushed for the freedom, they will always be remembered...

Same in `56 in Budapest.  Started with students in a Radio Free Europe station.

The media is one of the key points of control to take over a nation.  There are 5 main control points to take over a nation without firing a shot and the cheesepopes control them all; media, entertainment, government, finance, and military industrial complex.  They essentially they control the USSA.

Freddie's picture


If you watch O-TV or O-Hollywood then you support The Matrix aka the O-police state.

Colonel Klink's picture

Not true Freddie.  I say know thy enemy and their propaganda.  Being well informed means hearing both sides of what's being said.  Even Sun Tzu would agree.

A TV Station?  That is for last minute pikers.  How about an entire mainstream media complex over 40 years.  That is how you REALLY take over a once great nation.

social unrest is great, for the stock market and the elite. Central banks must flood the market with more trillions so the political elite can enact larger entitlement programs to buy social peace. This week delay Obamacare, next week free college, next week free housing, next week free cable. Its never ending. Its related to automation sweeping the world, eliminating millions of full time jobs worldwide leaving billions with nothing to do but protest and demand more entitlements. Think about it, the elite will have to go into hiding if the central banks stop printing but more billions if the central banks print. Its going to continue for years, before inflation/barter starts.

Morsi should start his prayers early and often today.

The Military taking over the State TV building means they are shutting down the mouthpiece - they will not allow him to get on the TV to stir up the Muslim Brotherhood to save him.

malikai's picture

What do you reckon the conversation will be like when Mubarak gets to meet his new cellmate?

Oldballplayer's picture

Mubarak must be laughing his ass off. This poser could not make it through a year. Morsi is a piss poor dictator.

morsi sure did not take the good advice O'idi bamin, gave him, lie lie and lie

Am I the only one who thought Muburak was already dead? I must be mistaken with Gadaffi.

ebworthen's picture

He was supposedly on his deathbed at one point, but made a miraculous recovery.

Crash Overide's picture

Gadaffi was the guy that started selling oil for gold remember?

That has a mortality rate that would make pneumonic Plague look trivial...

Yep 100% mortality.  Ghadaffi and Saddam.  Iran is on the short list.

"Muslim Brotherhood's refuse to meet with army officials."

Score to MBs for not being *that* dumb.

Renewable Life's picture

I can't keep track of my Muslim Revolutions at this point and who I'm suppose to root for????

Is Karzai in Afganistan Sunni, Shite, or Mixed Tribal??? So we support the Sunni "rebels" in Syria but kill them in Afganistan, right? We killed the Sunni in Iraq right? But support them in Jordan, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia against Shite Iran, right? Gaddafi was mixed tribal right, like Assad in Syria, so we joined the Sunni team in Libya right?

So the Generals in Egypt are what?? And who the fuck do we like in Lebanon???

Geez, what does it all have in common, other then American treasure lost and American soldiers dead and wounded all over the fucking place??

That's right, only one thing.........ENERGY!!!!!

Religion doesn't have a fucking thing to do with it and never will!!! Wake Up Americans!!!!

...and to expand Israel. They need to destabalize the region, so the zionists grab larger pieces of land from muslim countries. They already started talking that they are looking into anexing a large portion of Sirian teritory to keep it as a buffer zone with israeli military protecting it. I bet you did not here that on MSM...
