How Israel´s Iron Dome Works
ABC News, by Geetika Rudra    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/11/2014 4:45:52 AM     Post Reply
With the crisis in the Middle East escalating as Israel and Hamas continue to exchange missile fire, renewed attention has come to Israel´s defense system, the Iron Dome. The anti-missile defense system has been responsible for intercepting militant rockets targeted at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel´s two largest cities. As seen in video footage taken by ABC News, the Iron Dome intercepts missiles mid-air in a matter of seconds. First, the system identifies incoming missiles and then determines whether their range and direction threatens a highly populated area, like a city. If the incoming missile is deemed a threat than Iron Dome

Officers Say No Stand-
Down Order For Benghazi
Associated Press, by Bradley Klapper & Donna Cassata    Original Article

WASHINGTON -- Military officers testified that there was no "stand-down order" that held back military assets that could have saved the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans killed at a diplomatic outpost and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. Their testimony undercut the contention of Republican lawmakers. The "stand-down" theory centers on a Special Operations team - a detachment leader, a medic, a communications expert and a weapons operator with his foot in a cast - that was stopped from flying from Tripoli to Benghazi after the attacks of Sept. 11-12, 2012, had ended. Instead, it was instructed to help protect and

Mississippi GOP chairman Joe Nosef issued a statement Thursday in response to the latest legal actions from True The Vote, saying he plans to target the election integrity organization and its lawsuit’s various Mississippi voter plaintiffs with legal action. Nosef said the Republican Party in Mississippi plans to seek “sanctions against” the various Mississippi voters who have signed on as plaintiffs to True The Vote’s lawsuit against the party and Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, labeling the accusations the election integrity group made as “frivolous litigation.” “This out of state group ´True the Vote´ continues in its attempts to make a mockery

It’s Laughable How Much Cheaper
It Would Be to Send Illegals
Back Than Approve Obama’s $3.8 Billion
Independent Journal Review, by Kevin Boyd    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 7/11/2014 4:02:54 AM     Post Reply
Former Congressman Ernest Istook (R-Oklahoma) has a plan to deal with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who have arrived on the southern border in recent weeks: Fly them home. More importantly, he said this can be achieved for 99.5% less than the $3.8 billion that President Barack Obama is asking for to house 30,000 illegal aliens for a year. From his column in The Washington Times: At the unofficial reported cost of $250 per person per day, President Barack Obama is proposing we spend $1.8 billion “to provide appropriate care for unaccompanied children.” That works out to 19,726 minors for a year.

FONTANA, CA -- Breitbart News has learned that 46 illegal aliens, mostly women and children originally destined for the U.S. Border Patrol station in Murrieta, CA, were bused instead Thursday to the St. Joseph´s Catholic Church in Fontana, roughly 45 miles north. The 46 are among several hundred Central Americans who were caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas and have been transferred to California since. "The faith calls on us to do this," San Bernadino Diocese spokesperson John Andrews told Breitbart News. He said that the aliens would, in less than 24 hours, be driven from the church in individual

HOUSTON, Texas--An ad placed in the Penny Saver Newspaper in Murrieta, California is seeking "loving, compassionate parents to provide a loving home" for illegal immigrant minors, according to a local reader of the publication. Lisa Maloney Vinton, a Murrieta resident, provided Breitbart Texas with a purported copy of the advertisement, which was put up by the Crittenton Services and Foster Family Agency. It says, "Help heal the wounds ... for children in foster care programs including survivors of human trafficking and unaccompanied refugee minors.

Far right wing extremists have been emboldened by the standoff earlier this year between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government, according to a study released Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The report, entitled "War in the West" examines the conflict between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and militiamen who supported Bundy, who owed more than $1 million in grazing fees and fines to the government, despite insisting that he had "preemptive rights" to let his cattle graze on the federally owned land. The incident came as a result of a U.S. District Court ruling that he had

  


  

The Signs of Dictatorship
American Thinker, by Eileen F. Toplansky    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 7/11/2014 3:12:28 AM     Post Reply
As is often bemoaned by scholars, genuine classical education in American schools is virtually non-existent. Whereas 100 years ago, university students learned Greek and Latin, today, remedial math and English instruction is the norm. Yet, if people had a glimpse of Solon who lived approximately from 640-560 BCE, they would take to heart his warning about the "Signs of Dictatorship." The power of hail and snow springs from a cloud, and thunder from the fire of lightning. Strong men destroy a city, and a tyrant enslaves a people through their ignorance. A ship once out of port is hard to capture: know this now before it is

One sign of an imperial government is that it does what it wishes with whole populations. It can shift some here; move some there. It can deport some there; import some here. Who will say “No” when facing armed might? Authoritarian governments can pretty much do what they wish to do. The motives behind moving whole populations via executive fiat break down into two main categories. One is to prevent revolution and unrest by moving and quarantining what are considered indigestible peoples in order to weaken their resistance to the powers that be.

Barack´s Bull Run?

For some reason the cameras that are banned on the border were not banned from the Wynkoop Brewing Co. pizza and pool hall in Colorado where, in lieu of the middle finger, Barack Obama flipped a pool stick at America, banged back a few brewskis and yukked it up with Democratic governor John Hickenlooper. Cameras being banned from liberal policy hubs most assuredly indicates that whatever is going on there, if truth be told and visuals matched with verbal accounts, the American people would be horrified. That’s probably the reason why cameras are banned from abortion clinics and sonograms are opposed

This is the moment an unarmed Connecticut woman rammed a White House barricade before being shot dead by police last fall. The startling images were released today by the U.S. Attorney´s Office as the officers who fatally shot Miriam Carey after a high-speed car chase from the White House to the Capitol learned they will not face criminal charges. One still, taken from video footage at the White House checkpoint, shows a U.S. Secret Service officer trying to get Carey´s attention after she entered the restricted area.

COLUMBIA--Republican Gov. Nikki Haley had a record fundraising haul in the past quarter, her campaign said Thursday, doubling her Democratic opponent state Sen. Vincent Sheheen´s take for the same period. Haley racked up around $1.05 million in donations for the quarter ending June 30, leaving her effort with $4.46 million in the bank, Haley´s campaign said in a statement. It was her most successful funding effort of any quarter, Haley´s campaign said. The number of donors and the campaign´s complete quarterly report--which were due by the end of Thursday--were not immediately available. Sheehen raised $505,088 from 1,819 contributors in the

Dozens of experts will be weighing in, in coming days, on Israel´s right to self-defence in response to hundreds of Hamas rockets raining down. But what about the Palestinian people, and what’s good for them? Yesterday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of committing "genocide" in Gaza with their current operation "Protective Edge." This type of inflammatory rhetoric is particularly rich coming from someone who is responsible for the murder of hundreds of Israelis (including the murder of the 1972 Israeli Olympic Team in Munich). Sadly, this is hardly the first time Abbas has made statements that, in light

A nasty polar vortex that wreaked havoc on the east coast in January is making a shock return next week--though don´t pull out your puffer coat just yet. Unseasonably chilly air is headed for parts of the northern and northeastern U.S. where residents have been sweltering in 90 degree weather this week--as one would expect in July. Thankfully, families won´t be plunged into the despair they endured during January´s brutally cold weather pattern.

Brazilian federal police say that some 200 Ghanaians have requested asylum after entering the country on tourist visas to watch the World Cup. The Ghanaians say they are Muslims fleeing inter-religious conflicts in their home country. They have filed their applications in the southern city of Caxias do Sul, in one of Brazil´s most prosperous areas. Another 1,000 Ghanaians are expected to request refugee status once the tournament is over, police said. The Brazilian authorities believe many of the Ghanaians are looking for the right to work legally in the country.

Texas Governor Rick Perry toured the U.S.-Mexico border today without President Barack Obama, who ultimately decided to return to Washington, D.C. this afternoon after making a pit stop for BBQ in Austin. Perry´s office says he took a boat ride down the Rio Grande river and a chopper tour of the Rio Grande Valley with the Texas Department of Public Safety this afternoon. Meanwhile, President Obama spoke at a Democratic Party fundraiser, met with someone who wrote him a letter and gave remarks on the economy before stopping by Franklin Barbeque, where he dropped more than $300 on food for

AUSTIN – Never let it be said there is no such thing as a free lunch, at least when it comes to a presidential visit. On Thursday, after President Obama finished a 40-minute speech at the historic Paramount Theater in downtown Austin, his motorcade sped a few blocks away for a quick lunch at Franklin´s, a noted barbeque spot that was packed as always with a lunch crowd. As presidents tend to do, Obama cut to the front of the line so he could order takeout for his official travel party – offering to pay for the two people he

WASHINGTON — Sen. Mark Kirk said today that 429 unaccompanied minors from the Mexican border crisis are in Chicago in the custody of a federal agency, and he wants to know if any of the children have criminal records. Kirk, an Illinois Republican, said the children are in the custody of the Health and Human Services Department. His news release did not say where the children are being housed. In the release, Kirk also said the State Department is “unable to confirm if any of these individuals has a criminal record or background.” He added: “If any of these individuals

The immigration no-brainer

As is his wont, President Obama is treating the border crisis — more than 50,000 unaccompanied children crossing illegally — as a public relations problem. Where to photo op and where not. He still hasn’t enunciated a policy. He may not even have one. Will these immigrants be allowed to stay? Seven times was Obama’s homeland security secretary asked this on “Meet the Press.” Seven times he danced around the question. Presidential press secretary Josh Earnest was ostensibly more forthcoming: “It’s unlikely that most of those kids will qualify for humanitarian relief. .?.?. They will be sent back.” This was

Bears, beer and horse heads: What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world? On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule. More than five years into his presidency, Obama is trying to free himself from the constraints of office,

The Senate Judiciary Committee took the first step Thursday toward repealing part of the First Amendment, giving an early OK to a new amendment that would give government the power to put strict limits on all political campaign spending. The 10-8 party-line vote sends the amendment to the full Senate, where Democrats are likely to try to force a vote this month, as one of a number of politically charged issues they want to hold votes on before Congress takes a month-long summer vacation in August. Democrats said their amendment was a response to two Supreme Court rulings in recent

House Republicans announced Thursday that their first attempt to sue President Obama for breaching the limits of his executive power will be over his decision to exempt businesses from his health care law’s employer mandate. Making good on Speaker John A. Boehner’s threat last month, the Republicans released a draft of the bill to authorize Mr. Boehner to sue the president, in what Republicans say is an effort to rebalance the powers of Congress and the White House. “If this president can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well.

Privacy: President Obama promises your personal financial info will be safe in his Big Brother database, but the agency stockpiling that data by its own admission can´t keep other, less-sensitive info safe. Raising new data security and privacy fears, a former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau official has blown the whistle on the sievelike nature of the data the agency already is collecting and storing on consumers.

April 2009 - After a Mid-East trip to Egypt to deliver his Cairo speech, President Barack Obama travels to South America for the “Summit of the Americas“. The summit included thirty-four South American countries. Obama wanted to promote his point that relations in North and South America can be heavily improved, especially after age old ideals on immigration and commerce are dropped. Hugo Chavez warmly embraced Obama and provided a gift, a book titled “The Open Veins of Latin America“.

Immigration: Three in five Americans say the tens of thousands of minors who have crossed the border "should be ordered to leave the U.S." What about that do the Congress and president not understand? The latest IBD/TIPP Poll, conducted June 24 to 29, asked those Americans who are following the story what to do about the influx of unaccompanied minors. Those saying that the government should order them to leave totaled 60%. Breaking that sizeable majority down, 64% of independents wanted the minors sent home, as did 40% of Democrats and 80% of Republicans. There were 879 Americans surveyed in

No one knows just how many tens of thousands of Central American nationals — most of them desperate, unescorted children and teens — are streaming across America´s southern border. Yet this phenomenon offers us a proverbial teachable moment about the paradoxes and hypocrisies of Latin American immigration to the U.S. For all the pop romance in Latin America associated with Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba, few Latinos prefer to immigrate to such communist utopias or to socialist spinoffs like Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador or Peru. Instead, hundreds of thousands of poor people continue to risk danger to enter democratic,
