Figures… Obama’s Favorite Author Is Suspended for Plagiarizing

Author of The Post-American World is caught plagiarizing.

Before the election Barack Obama carried around The Post-American World by Fareed Zakaria. A book that Amazon.com portrays as:

“…describing a world in which the United States will no longer dominate the global economy, orchestrate geopolitics, or overwhelm cultures.”

Today Fareed Zakaria was suspended for plagiarizing.
The AP reported:

Time editor-at-large and CNN host Fareed Zakaria has been suspended by both the magazine and the network for lifting several paragraphs by another writer for his use in a recent Time column.

Zakaria apologized Friday, declaring in a statement he made “a terrible mistake,” adding, “It is a serious lapse and one that is entirely my fault.”

In a separate statement, Time spokesman Ali Zelenko said the magazine accepts Zakaria’s apology, but would suspend his column for one month, “pending further review.”

“What he did violates our own standards for our columnists, which is that their work must not only be factual but original; their views must not only be their own but their words as well,” Zelenko said.

Shortly afterward, CNN said it had removed from the network’s website a blog post that “included similar unattributed excerpts,” and taken Zakaria off the air indefinitely.

“CNN has suspended Fareed Zakaria while this matter is under review,” said CNN spokeswoman Jennifer Dargan. She said Zakaria’s Sunday foreign-affairs program, “GPS,” will have its time slots filled in the interim by “Your Money with Ali Veshi” and “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.”

    Don’t blame Obama. Bill Ayers told him it was a good book when he gave it to him.

    Big shock from the Muslim creep. Liberal slime…you expect anyone to be shocked?

    —“It is a serious lapse and one that is entirely my fault.”—

    First time he didn’t blame it on Bush.

    This is fake cover story to explain Fareed’s 3 month sabatical and take your eye off his real assignment ….Fareed will working very hard behind the scenes scripting fake fraudulant Obama commercials accusing Mitt Romney of every conceivable felonious activity.

  • Sasja

    Charlie. I think that was Zakaria referring to his plagarism.

    “…describing a world in which the United States will no longer dominate the global economy, orchestrate geopolitics, or overwhelm cultures.”

    Gee, Bammy’s American dream. Not having read the book, and knowing Bammy wants to destroy our Republic, I have to draw the conclusion he (Zakaria) thinks this is a good thing?

    GP, you should get together with a few other right wing blogs and go into every. Single. Thing. written by this lying, thieving turd. You can bet there’s more – probably even in that little book Obama used to carry around. These guys never do it just once. And Zakaria has previously been fingered for this kind of thing.

    People. Pelosi’s House Majority Pac, SEIU and AFSCME are pooling their resources (money) to run attack ads against Steve King. His opponent is Christie Vilsak, wife of the Secretary of Ag. I know times are tough, but if any of you can donate to his campaign it would be appreciated. Just go to steveking.com and make a donation no matter the amount. I have no info at this time if he has, or will, receive any help from the RNC.

    Both Biiden and Barry are known plagiarists! He didn’t even write his own book for christ’s sake!

    Why be suprised

    OT, but you know what I can hardly wait for? NEVER TO HAVE TO SEE OBAMA’S FACE on such a regular basis EVER AGAIN. He’s a punk, he’s a thug, he’s a destroyer.

    Problem is, I can’t imagine him exiting gracefully. He’ll make the shenanigans Clinton’s people did when leaving the white house look like child’s play.

    Homeland Security accused of millions in waste

    [Questions from Congress are mounting for the Department of Homeland Security about allegations that millions of tax dollars have been wasted on a chemical facilities security program, with lawmakers probing accusations that senior officials bottled up internal complaints about the matter. At issue is the “CFATS” program, which stands for Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards; it was created in 2007 to let the feds review the threat to the public posed by attacks on chemical facilities around the country. But lawmakers have been told that instead of using over $450 million to inspect chemical facilities and deal with security matters over the last five years, the program has been a magnet for bureaucratic excess, waste and a concerted effort inside Homeland Security to paper over internal complaints…]

    There’s much better discriptive adjectives than the one you’re all thinking to describe her, so hold your thoughts.

    Brace yourself. Four* more years is probable.

    *four, in this case, meaning, as many more are required by Soros’s Puppet in order to provide the world with a sequel to The Great Leap Forward, by Mao Tse Tung.

    Again, folks: brace yourselves.

    If Fareed isn’t down in the bunker writing campaign ads for Obama……He is stationed at a Miami flight school training how to work the joy stick drone fleet for the Tampa convention. Drive your own armoured vehicles to Tampa with steel plates on the roof….Avoid walking the sidewalks …..Never flag down a taxi !

  • mg4us

    Fareed is a Fake and Fraud. . coming to this country to earn millions by helping to cut the country down. . . people Like Fareed gets his support from enemies foreign AND DOMESTIC. . .

    But his Post America book that Obama greatly loves misses one key point. . there is NO OTHER COUNTRY on earth people everywhere want to flock to more than America!!

    Many People give much including time, lifesavings some even their lives trying to get into America legally or illegally. . . besides asylum seekers, has any other country faced mass immigration of people wanting to join their culture?

    It is time these dividers and elitists be exposed for the fakes and frauds they are. .they corrupt our society and infect us with division. . the loathe the United in United States. . . the do not want to assimilate but separate. . .

    Send Fareed packing. .to the unemployment line!!

  • mg4us

    Fareed forgot to plagiarize. . .er I mean write a chapter on the son Obama never had.

    because if Obama had a son he would look like the perpetrator in this horrible crime

    The book is just a prop. The subprimer doesn’t read much. It shows every time he speaks sans teleprompter.

  • Warren Peece

    Could not happen to a more deserving individual. Zakaria joins Joe Biden and Katie Couric in the “I can’t think or write anything original so I have to copy someone else’s work” clubhouse. Too bad plagiarists can’t be jailed.

  • BS-meter

    Poor little writer :'(

    Can’t wait for the curtain to be

    Wiz- Obama, really is.

  • Mama Grizzly

    “The Post American World” = Obama’s favorite book and very favorite idea.

    Fareed Zakaria, huh? Well, we sure can judge a man by the company he keeps.

    Obama was pushed to the presidency by like-mindeds whose goals was to destroy America. Happened also to be Obama’s personal goal.
