9 Top Questions for the
Benghazi Select Committee
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 9/17/2014 9:46:39 AM     Post Reply
The long-awaited House Select Committee on Benghazi begins its historic open hearings today. The chair is Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a no-nonsense former federal and state prosecutor now in his second House term. The 50-year-old Gowdy´s challenges include herding GOP colleagues in a coherent investigative direction while combating the anticipated pre-election obfuscations and complaints of Democrats eager to protect President Obama and his wannabe successor Hillary Clinton. But the committee´s most important duty is ferreting out credible answers to thousands of questions about the deadly night of 9/11/12.

Resentment over the arrogance of ruling elites has boiled over.

Ukrainian politician gets dumped

Video emerged Tuesday from Kiev of an angry mob frog-marching a member of parliament and literally dumping him in the garbage. Vitaly Zhuravsky is held down by his assailants, splashed with water and buffeted by a loose tire before getting wheeled away in the dumpster and retrieved by some conspicuously disinterested security personnel. Zhuravsky is a former member of the political party of former president Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted following months of protests in February. Some reports suggest he was targeted because of his role in the passage of a bill in January that restricted freedom of speech.

Don´t Blame the NFL
American Thinker, by Jack Cashill    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 9/17/2014 9:04:09 AM     Post Reply
On the opening weekend of the 2014 NFL season, 1696 players suited up for game one. Of these, 1694 are in their twenties and thirties. Based on a survey I did of the AFC South division a few years ago, roughly 1170 of these players are African American. A few have gotten into trouble lately. (snip)What the media rarely discuss, and then only gingerly, is how black NFL players have fared compared to young black men not in the NFL. The answer, unfortunately, is much too well. According to the Bureau of Justice statistics, one in three black men can expect

Like Hedy Epstein, Eva Steiner Moseley is another fake Holocaust survivor who uses phony claims of being a Holocaust survivor to attack Israel and support terrorists. Eva Moseley is even more fake than Hedy Epstein because she and her family moved to New York in 1939. Moseley is a more honest fraud because she describes her fake Holocaust survivor routine as her ‘schtick’. In a shockingly unguarded moment, she wrote the following email to her comrades at the Peace Commission: “I can do my “I escaped from Nazi Vienna and am unhappy with what Israel does” schtick, if you think that would

Israeli Christians´ New Nationality:

130,000 of Israel´s 160,000 Christians, hitherto registered as Arabs, are expected to re-register as Aramaeans; their leaders are ecstatic. Interior Minister Gideon Saar has instructed the Population, Immigration and Border Authority (PIBA) to allow the registration of a new nationality – Aramaean – in the identity cards of Christian citizens who were registered as Arabs until now. In a letter to PIBA Director Amnon Ben-Ami, Saar wrote that he has “received three opinions according to which the existence of the Aramaean nationality is clear and obvious, as required by the Supreme Court´s ruling.” "The conditions required by the ruling for proving

According to several senior US analysts, the Islamic State (ISIS) extremist jihadi danger not only threatens western Europe--the presence of hundreds of Chechen fighters in the ISIS ranks puts Russia squarely under the cross-hairs as well. [Snip] "This message is addressed to you, oh (Russian President) Vladimir Putin," said an ISIS terrorist in the video. "These are your aircraft which you sent to (Syrian President) Bashar (Assad), and with the help of Allah we’ll send them back to you. Remember this. And with the permission of Allah, we’ll liberate Chechnya and all the Caucasus." Marvin Kalb, senior adviser to the Washington-based Pulitzer

I´ve been saying it for weeks--you can´t defeat Isil without putting boots on the ground. And now US General Martin Dempsey, the head of the American Armed Forces, has confirmed what anyone with a reasonable understanding of what is required to defeat Isil knows, that some form of Western ground forces will be needed if this threat is to be fully destroyed. [Snip] The campaign to destroy Isil will be more akin to how we approached the initial invasion of Afghanistan in 2001: Western forces working in conjunction with pro-Western allies such as the Northern Alliance--or France´s military intervention in

A British man spouts nonsense in front of a camera, does something incredibly stupid, becomes an internet video hit. It happens every couple of months, but never before in a way that’s done so much to impact policy as the “Isil” murder videos. Whether you want to or not, you can’t avoid the images of the beheadings of US journalists and UK aid workers in the last couple of weeks. The murderer, “Jihadi John”, as we’ve taken to calling him, is doubtless pleased with his notoriety, with the fact he´s graced the front pages of newspapers back in the UK.

Dempsey: Half Of Iraqi Army

PARIS -- About half of Iraq´s army is incapable of partnering effectively with the U.S. to roll back the Islamic State group´s territorial gains in western and northern Iraq, and the other half needs to be partially rebuilt with U.S. training and additional equipment, the top U.S. military officer said Wednesday. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a former wartime commander of U.S. training programs in Iraq, said a renewed U.S. training effort might revive the issue of gaining legal immunity from Iraqi prosecution for those U.S. troops who are training the Iraqis.

Judging by facial expression and body language alone, I would guess that Alex Salmond´s private polling is telling him that he has lost. And if there is a "No" victory is by a small-ish margin, that will be the best possible outcome for him personally. As he says himself, this decision will be forever. There will be no repetition (mercifully) of this ugly experiment in mob initimidation and bare-faced lying. [Snip] But if he wins, as he must by now be suspecting if he is not utterly delusional, he will have to face the truly terrible consequences of his reckless

Jewish Group Condemns Biden’s
‘Offensive’ Reference To ‘Shylocks’
Washington Free Beacon, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 9/17/2014 7:45:07 AM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden’s casual use of an expression deemed anti-Semitic by many has drawn sharp condemnation from the Anti-Defamation League. Biden referred to bankers who take advantage of military men and women serving overseas as “Shylocks.” The term comes from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, in which the villain Shylock is a greedy Jewish moneylender who infamously asks for a “pound of flesh” as payment. “Shylock represents the medieval stereotype about Jews and remains an offensive characterization to this day. The Vice President should have been more careful,” said Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman. Biden was speaking to the Legal Services Corporation,

In his major address explaining America’s new war against ISIS, President Obama pledged that there would be no U.S. combat troops. On Tuesday, Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he may recommend ground forces in the future. The White House is seeking to gloss over the rift between the president and his top general, but it is clear that just below the waterline Obama is not on the same page as the commanders who will be leading the new fight. U.S. military officials and members of Congress have complained privately for weeks that Obama appears

Just call her a pit bull without lipstick! Sarah Palin is proving she has a sense of humor about the makeup-free photos that surfaced this week. On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident.

On Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that a comprehensive amnesty bill would have helped America contain the Ebola epidemic in Africa. Durbin, a member of the Senate´s Gang of Eight that wrote the immigration reform bill, said during a Senate hearing on Ebola that the Senate´s amnesty bill would have even allowed doctors in the United States to travel to Africa to combat Ebola "without jeopardizing their immigration status." “We included in the immigration reform bill, which passed the United States Senate, a provision which provided, in one respect, if you are medically trained in Africa and promise to

Will politics doom the Benghazi
committee´s investigation?

The Republicans in the House who spearheaded the formation of a special Select Committee on Benghazi have insisted that their investigations into the Sept. 11, 2012 attack won´t be politically motivated. Democrats joined the committee with the aim of keeping politics out of the effort. Still, ahead of the committee´s first public hearing, neither Democrats nor Republicans have seemed capable of defusing one of the most politically-charged issues in Washington. (Snip) When asked Tuesday whether he is concerned the committee is inherently political, Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, the committee´s top Democrat, declined to answer directly.

Ahead of the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s highly-anticipated first public hearing Wednesday, Democrats offered some of their own answers to questions surrounding the terrorist attack while Republicans urged them not to prejudge the investigation before it starts. The jockeying follows months of behind-the-scenes work that will culminate in an open airing of how well the State Department has done in implementing its own internal review panel’s recommendations for fixing the kinds of problems that led to the attack, which cost the lives of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Maryland Democrat and the

The unveiling of President Obama’s new plan to contain the Ebola virus did little to appease critics who questioned the White House’s commitment to halting an epidemic with wide-ranging national security consequences. After weeks of prodding from African nations, the president on Tuesday used a trip to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to announce a blueprint to send up to 3,000 military personnel to West Africa, part of an effort to spend roughly $750 million to limit the spread of Ebola. "Ebola is now an epidemic of the likes we have not seen before,” Obama insisted. "It is

MINNEAPOLIS — After a day of public pressure from angry fans and concerned sponsors, the Minnesota Vikings have reversed course and placed star running back Adrian Peterson on the exempt-commissioner’s permission list, a move that will require him to stay away from the team while he addresses child abuse charges in Texas. The Vikings made the announcement early Wednesday morning, about a day and a half after initially deciding that Peterson could play with the team while the legal process played out. Peterson is charged with a felony for using a wooden switch to spank his 4-year-old son and now

One quarter of the nation´s 11 million illegals are believed to now reside in the Golden State, with that lawlessness spreading in multiple areas. This month, the feds rounded up nearly $100 million in Mexican illegal cartel cash from 70 Los Angeles garment district collaborators, calling it "the epicenter" of money laundering in the Western Hemisphere. That´s some foreign investment you´ve attracted, governor. More to the point, when California´s voters passed Proposition 187 in 1994, illegal immigrants numbered just 1.3 million in California, with 308,000 of them children, costing taxpayers $3 billion, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

A week ago, President Obama stood before the American people and promised that the expanding fight against the Islamic State — a vicious Sunni militant group known as ISIS or ISIL that is terrorizing parts of Iraq and Syria — would not mean a commitment of American ground troops. “As I have said before, these American forces will not have a combat mission,” he said. On Tuesday, Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had a very different message when he testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee. “If we reach the point where I believe

Like some of you, I´ve wondered about President Obama´s inner circle. I am not talking about the people with titles or all of "suits" who move around with him from one place to another. In other words, whom does he go to for advice, for geopolitical thinking or just plain common sense? Whom does he speak confidentially with? Does he call, say, President Bush-41 and get some thoughts about putting together a coalition? Has he spoken to President Bush-43 about shifting strategies, like the surge of 2007? Has he spoken to President Clinton about revamping his administration, as we saw

Environment: The joke in Washington is that climate change alarmists in the White House care more about ice than ISIS. But it´s no joke. The world is aflame in violence and barbaric acts of terrorism, and Secretary of State John Kerry is running around warning one of the biggest problems facing the planet — ranking "right up there" with "terrorism, epidemics, poverty (and) the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction" — is global warming.

The Grand Mufti of the Department of Social Justice (aka, DOJ) has issued a fatwa prohibiting states from using zoning laws to deny building permits for Islamic “culture centers” -- Mosques with “youth centers.” … as a grand jury investigates another Minneapolis mosque for radicalizing recruits for ISIL, the Justice Department is suing local officials for blocking a new extremist mosque in the area. Attorney General Eric Holder sued St. Anthony, Minn., after the Minneapolis suburb rejected the Abu Huraira Islamic Center and its 15,000-square-foot mosque over zoning issues.

On Thursday, Scotland will decide whether it intends to remain part of the United Kingdom or go its own way as a separate nation. Inspired, Catalonia has renewed its campaign for independence from Spain. Earlier this week, it became clear that San Francisco venture capitalist Tim Draper’s “Six Californias” initiative — which would have seen the state subdivided into six new polities, in effect allowing affluent Silicon Valley to secede from the state’s poor interior and the vulgarians down south — would not proceed to the ballot, having failed to secure sufficient signatures in the petition stage.
