Dr. Ben Carson should apologize
to President Obama
FoxNews.com, by Cal Thomas    Original Article
Posted By: SallyHerigstad- 2/12/2013 12:53:24 PM     Post Reply
Our politics have become so polarized and corrupted that a president of the United States cannot even attend an event devoted to drawing people closer to God and bridge partisan and cultural divides without being lectured about his policies. Last Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., Dr. Ben Carson, director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and a 2008 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, broke with a 61-year-old tradition and publicly disagreed with some of the president´s policies, such as "ObamaCare," taxation and the national debt.

How the ‘Iranian Jackal’ was killed
National Post (Canada), by Erol Araf    Original Article

On the fifth anniversary of the assassination of Imad Mughniyah, a.k.a. “The Iranian Jackal,” much new information about the hunt for the terrorist most wanted by Mossad and the FBI has emerged. It’s a story of high-tech surveillance and old-fashioned espionage, and it’s just starting to be truly told now. Imad Mughniyah was 20 years old when he made his debut on the international terrorist scene in 1983, with a series of spectacular and deadly bombings aimed at Western forces in Lebanon.

The incoming head of the CIA converted to Islam while working as a station chief in Saudi Arabia in the 1990s, a former FBI agent has claimed. John Guandolo, who retired from the FBI in 2008, said in a radio interview that John Brennan - who has been nominated by Barack Obama as the new director of the CIA - visited the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina accompanied by Saudi officials who may have persuaded him to convert. Mr Guandolo´s tale echoes elements of the plot of hit show Homeland, in which

The liberal establishment has finally taken note of the elephant in the Muslim parlor, namely the closing of the Muslim womb. A year after the American Enterprise Institute’s Nicholas Eberstadt reported the precipitous fall in Muslim fertility in a widely commented paper, and seven years after I reported the trend and its strategic implications at Asia Times, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius reports wide-eyed on Eberstadt’s findings: The Arab world may be experiencing a youth bulge now, fueling popular uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and elsewhere.

"self-defense" against U.S. hostility

Pyongyang - The Democratic People´s Republic of Korea (DPRK) said Tuesday that its nuclear test was an act of self-defense against the United States´ hostility. It is "natural just measure for self-defense to react to the U.S. ever-increasing nuclear threat with nuclear deterrence," a spokesman for the DPRK´s Foreign Ministry said in a statement released by the official news agency KCNA. The DPRK´s patience has "reached its limit as the U.S. intensified such hostile act", the spokesman said, warning to "take the second and third stronger steps in succession" if the U.S., its "sworn enemy," continues hostility.

Court records show that Salomon Melgen, the longtime Democratic donor linked to New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, provided an oceanfront condominium to a Ukranian model at the center of prostitution allegations lodged against both men. The Palm Beach Post reported Sunday that Melgen arranged for Svitlana Buchyk to occupy a condo he leased for her on Singer Island near Palm Beach, Florida in 2009. Melgen’s private jet carried Sen. Menendez to the Dominican Republic on at least three occasions for what an anonymous whistle-blower has alleged were a series of sex parties with prostitutes.

President Obama in his State of the Union address Tuesday will announce that 34,000 American troops will return from Afghanistan within a year, according to a source familiar with the president’s speech. That figure represents roughly half of the U.S. troops now in Afghanistan. Obama will tout the winding down of the war there as part of his commitment to lessen the U.S. footprint in the volatile Middle East. Last month, Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai announced a plan to speed the transition of combat operations to Afghan forces.

Graham’s Clear Path

Lindsey Graham was supposed to be the Dick Lugar of the 2014 cycle. Instead, he may be the Orrin Hatch. Even tea partiers in South Carolina admit he probably has a smooth path to the nomination and then to reelection. Graham has consistently irked conservatives. He voted to confirm Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. He supports the DREAM Act and was one of the chief architects of the 2007 immigration legislation that was widely derided by conservatives as an amnesty. The Club for Growth — which helped topple Indiana’s Lugar and Utah’s Bob Bennett — announced last fall that Graham

"The president in his statement said this was a highly provocative act that warranted swift and credible action. What will the president say tonight about reducing nuclear weapons?"

Timothy Heaphy, a U.S. Attorney testifying in favor of tightening gun control laws, admitted that he couldn’t explain why some places with tight gun laws have high crime while others have low crime. “I can’t say that I know what causes gun violence,” Heaphy told the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights as he called for lawmakers to find the “sweet spot” between Second Amendment rights and the need for public safety. “It’s very difficult to isolate one cause and tie it very specifically to our crime rate,” he said.

When Kazakhstan’s riot police slaughtered dozens of striking oil field workers last year, Atlantic Council affiliate Joshua Foust rushed to discredit the reports. Foust, a member of the Atlantic Council’s Young Atlanticist Working Group, attacked critics of the government-backed crackdown, claiming they were relying on a “completely invented body count” to “politicize” the incident. Foust’s efforts were just one piece of a broader effort by the Atlantic Council to burnish the reputation of the Kazakh government, recently revealed as a donor to the think tank.

A real feeling of Hope & Change will pervade at tonight’s State of the Union Address. The first overriding feeling of Hope & Change that cannot be masked by the hypocrisy of the preening Obamas, by the hype of the Mainstream Media or the stridency of Nancy Pelosi. The roughly 50 percent of Americans who stand firmly against the Fundamental Transformation of America have waited four long years for someone to tell President Barack Obama he has no right to destroy an America built by its Founding Fathers. That ‘someone’ emerged Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast in the

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Monday said there is more energy behind the push for immigration reform now than there was during the 2007 reform attempt under the Bush administration. During a conference call detailing the formation of the Bipartisan Policy Center Immigration Task Force — set to be co-chaired by Rice, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry G. Cisneros, former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, and former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell — Rice suggested the 2007 reform effort failed in part because there was no gas left in the White House’s tank.

Any adult who takes a school matter into his or her own hands – like a mother who allegedly entered Withrow High School without permission Thursday and helped her daughter beat up another girl – will be held accountable, Cincinnati Police Chief James Craig said Monday. Police say the mother, her daughter and another woman burst into a classroom at the school on Madison Road about 2 p.m. Thursday. The mother and daughter, according to police, assaulted a 15-year-old girl, striking her with fists, feet and a combination lock. Teacher Kim Kilby suffered a black eye in the scuffle.

An unnamed "senior American official" suggests that North Korea is not just testing nukes for itself, but also for (and possibly with) the Iranians. The New York Times reports: No country is more interested in the results of the North’s nuclear program, or the Western reaction, than Iran, which is pursuing its own uranium enrichment program. The two countries have long cooperated on missile technology, and many intelligence officials believe they share nuclear knowledge as well, though so far there is no hard evidence. The Iranians are also pursuing uranium enrichment, and one senior

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican is acknowledging for the first time that Pope Benedict XVI has had a pacemaker for years and that its battery was replaced a few months ago in secret. Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi said Benedict had the pacemaker installed "a long time" before he became pope in 2005. He called the latest medical procedure "routine." It was the first time the Vatican has mentioned a papal pacemaker. Italian daily Il Sole 24 said the pope had the pacemaker procedure less than three months ago in a Rome hospital and did not miss any public appearances.

TAMPA — Pundits are already atwitter over tonight’s annual exercise in political posturing. The question many are asking is whether Obama will stay on the attack against his Republican opponents or attempt to use the speech to identify areas where he can work with them. The real question is whether the president will make a single remark that bears any resemblance to reality. The State of the Union address (SOU) has always been little more than a nationally televised stump speech. As all presidents believe that anything happening anywhere in the country is a direct result
