Britain’s defence is
in fighting shape
Telegraph [UK], by Michael Fallon    Original Article

To serve as Defence Secretary is an awesome responsibility and great privilege. Keeping Britain safe in a dangerous world is the job of our magnificent Armed Forces; keeping them properly equipped and supported is my priority. The horrific scenes we witnessed this week when Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 came down in Eastern Ukraine remind us that we live in an increasingly unpredictable and fragile world. A world where instability in the Middle East, in the Horn of Africa or on the frontiers of Europe can still have the severest consequences for British citizens. It is important that we get answers

GOP slams ´pen and phone´ strategy

Incoming House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) criticized President Obama for saying he would use his "pen and phone" to accomplish his agenda without the help of Congress. Scalise, the former leader of the conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC), called on Obama to pressure the Democratically led Senate to adopt more bills that have been passed by the House. "Every time they say no — every time they pick their interests over yours — they hold our economy hostage, and with it, our chance to make sure our kids will have the same shot at the American dream," Scalise said in the

A fracking problem for Dems

Republicans love fracking in Colorado — and it could help them flip a critical Senate seat this fall. The onslaught against Democratic Sen. Mark Udall (Colo.) reached a fever pitch this week when Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) had to cancel a special legislative session meant to keep two hydraulic fracturing initiatives backed by Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) off the November ballot. Udall, who had stayed out of the fray on the two measures, was forced to take a side much to the GOP´s glee. Now, with Colorado as one of the top natural gas producing states in the nation, the fracking controversy

Presumably there are at least a few politicians in the great Western capitals who have some idea of how to get a grip on the current global chaos. Perhaps at some point they will let us know what it is. At the moment, all that we are getting is banalities and obfuscation, which seem to be a cover for total panic. Apart from the obvious words of condolence and horror over the shooting down of a civilian airliner, no one seems to have anything meaningful to say about an incident that could have the diplomatic significance of the sinking of

CHICOPEE, Mass. – 50,000 immigrants have crossed the southern U.S. border looking for a place to stay. After a proposal was announced by Governor Patrick on Friday, a good amount of them might be seeking shelter in Chicopee. Westover Air Reserve Base may become the newest shelter for hundreds of undocumented immigrant children escaping Central America. 22News spoke with local residents all morning, and after 7 on-camera interviews, all of them said they don’t want the children staying in Chicopee. Chicopee mayor Richard Kos is even against this idea. Representatives at Westover Aire Reserve Base are also hesitant about this proposal. Master

JONES COUNTY, MS - About one dozen Pine Belt residents carried signs and American flags and waved at vehicles from an overpass on Interstate-59 Saturday to protest illegal immigration. They were part of a National Day of Protest organized on social media by the "Make Them Listen" movement. Folks from Petal, Pearl River and Jones counties displayed signs such as "Secure the Border" and "No Amnesty" as they stood on the overpass at the Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport exit. "The border is not secure and we´re being invaded," said Darlene Thomas, one of the organizers of the protest. "It´s not a legal process and

San Diegans gathered Saturday morning to take part in a nationwide protest against immigration reform amid the border crisis. With American flags and opposition signs in hand, dozens of protesters united along the Interstate 8 overpass in La Mesa near Severin Drive to voice their opinions on illegal immigration. “We think our border needs to be better protected,” said Ocean Beach resident Lucy Ingalls. “Crime is coming in, we have disease coming in, we have mothers sending their kids off by themselves to get sick and die on their own and I think that’s a huge crime. I think we need to care

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas – Protests continue across the country over the recent wave of undocumented people illegally entering the United States. One of those protests were held Saturday morning in Montgomery County. Hundreds of protestors with the Montgomery County Citizens Against Illegal Immigration said they don’t want immigrants to be transferred to the area for housing. “Our big question and I believe their big question is how this happened under everybody’s nose,” said Michelle Prescott. “How the feds were able to bring in these children in our community and not notify anybody about it.”

Palin: Obama´s America An ´Unfunded

On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin accused President Barack Obama of knowingly allowing turning American into an "unfunded charity" for illegal immigrants to invade and overrun. Referring to Obama as "the DREAMweaver," Palin said when Congress declined to pass amnesty legislation, Obama "waved his magic wand" and enacted his own. "And that created the current crisis as illegals are pouring in to collect what he illegally promised them," Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado. "If Obama won´t obey the law and secure the borders, it´s not immigration, it´s invasion." Nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant children have flooded across the border

Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate, blasted President Barack Obama on Saturday and demanded his removal from office. The tea party speaking-circuit darling said at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado that talk of impeachment ´has got him nervous.´ Condemning the White House´s response to a swarm of illegal immigrants cascading across the U.S.-Mexico border, she accused Obama of ´not defending [America´s] borders and called it a ´dereliction of duty, violating the oath of office.´ ´If that´s not impeachable, then nothing is,´ she said to generous applause. ´And if he´s not impeachable, no one is.´ ´Unaccompanied Alien Children´:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin hit back at Attorney General Eric Holder on Saturday for criticizing her call to impeach President Obama over the border crisis. “I don´t need lectures from Eric Holder, a guy – get this – so incompetent that he denied voter fraud existed even after someone claimed that they were Eric Holder and they got his ballot and they voted in D.C.,” Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver. Palin was referring to an April 2012 video by a conservative activist that showed a man entering a Washington, D.C., polling center and requesting Holder´s ballot, offering

On his Friday radio show, Glenn Beck suggested those who do not want to pass out soccer balls and teddy bears to illegal immigrant children at detention centers with him are "pusses." He also said Americans should not "focus" on the gangsters, killers, and rapists who are coming across the border with the illegal immigrant children two days after Breitbart Texas reported that an illegal immigrant whom the federal government released in June with a "notice to appear" was arrested for murder. While discussing his plans to go to McAllen, Texas on Saturday with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Louie Gohmert

This weak and timid President talks big...

Obama by a top Washington insider

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin wondered why President Barack Obama´s administration was not dumping illegal immigrant children in exclusive liberal communities in Manhattan, Silicon Valley, and the Washington, D.C. suburbs to live with pro-amnesty advocates. Speaking at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado on Saturday, Palin said that politicians and their rich pro-amnesty friends in Silicon Valley or Wall Street can afford the best security for their borders that money can buy in their exclusive, gated communities. But Palin said when it comes to taking care of the nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant children who have come across the

The New Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has accused Vladimir Putin of ‘sponsoring terrorism’ and delivered an ultimatum to Russia’s leader: ‘Get out of Ukraine.’ In the most outspoken response to the crisis from any senior western politician, Mr Fallon said Putin must be taught he cannot get away with ‘egging on’ Russian separatists blamed for the attack. ‘We have to make it very clear if there is any more interference like this – and it turns out he was behind it – there will be repercussions. He has to be clear the West will act.’ Mr Fallon, who was made Defence Secretary in

THE tragedy of MH17 will do nothing to stop Putin in his plans to re-establish a new Soviet Union. This was a tragic accident for him but his ambitions extend beyond Ukraine and this will not stop that. The world now knows he is involved with separatists connected to the deaths of hundreds of innocent people. I think Putin will understand there is no going back now and he will make his move. Ukraine is only the first stage; it is the beginning of a wider campaign to increase Russia´s strength. He will move to other countries, such as Moldova and Belorussia,

Leaving a vapour trail in a clear blue sky, this was the scene seconds after a missile was sent screaming towards Flight MH17 at 1,900mph. About two seconds after this picture was taken, the Malaysia Airlines jet was blown apart in mid-air. The rocket was apparently fired from the edge of Snizhne, a town controlled by pro-Moscow rebels. It took 12 seconds to reach its target, which was flying at an altitude of 33,000ft. ‘This is the vapour path of the rocket which hit the Boeing,’ insisted Ukrainian intelligence chief Vitaliy Naida. Two days earlier, Snizhne itself was hit by missiles from what the

Darling of the far left Sen. Elizabeth Warren released her 11 commandments of progressivism this week during her stop at the Netroots Nation annual conference. The National Journal reported: - “We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it.” - “We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth.” - “We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality.” - “We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage.” -

Hillary Clinton for president:

Anyone who believes that Hillary Clinton will not run for President in 2016 should examine her recently-published book, Hard Choices, which in places reads like a campaign manifesto. The 600 pages of text offer much more, but on myriad domestic and international issues readers can readily predict her positions as president, even beyond what she has already indicated as first lady, senator from New York, and Barack Obama’s first secretary of state. With the escalating violence in Israel and Gaza, for example, her chapter on the Middle East indicates in detail how she dealt with key regional leaders in earlier crises and

In a fiery speech at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Saturday, U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said he was confident after meeting with President Obama last week that the president will move forward in the coming months with an executive order that would grant legal status to millions of immigrants in the country illegally, possibly including the parents of American-born children. Gutierrez, speaking on the first day of the annual conference of the National Council of La Raza, also took aim at Republicans for failing to pass immigration reform legislation and warned that there would be a political price

There’s probably never been a time when humanity wasn’t collectively in a torment and uproar about what its young folk were up to. (Gur to Urp, 10,000 B.C.: “Can you believe how short the girls are wearing their bearskins these days?”) But in contrast with our image of decadent, self-centered, pleasure-craving youth, in many ways today’s youngsters are throwbacks — spurning drugs, crime and disorder, being sexually responsible and making sound choices about education. They might be the least disaffected, least rebellious kids since the Kennedy years. And that might have surprising political implications down the road. A July 12 Economist piece

Saturday in Denver at the Western Conservative Summit former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) slammed Attorney General Eric Holder for his appearance on ABC´s "This Week" last Sunday when he accused Obama administration detractors of being motivated by race. Palin slammed Holder, saying, "I don´t need lectures from Eric Holder." Taunting him, she continued, "Not many cabinet members in U.S. history have been held in contempt of Congress."

Saturday in Denver at the Western Conservative Summit, former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) made the argument for impeaching President Barack Obama, saying, "No serious person can deny President Obama has violated the constitution." Listing the president´s high crimes and misdemeanors as his illegal changes to ObamaCare, the IRS targeting of conservatives, the DOJ targeting reporters, and the VA killing veterans, Palin said Obama is "radically changing the balance of power." She ended by declaring, "We had a revolution in 1776 because we don´t do kings."

Rory McIlroy´s father Gerry is in line for a share of a £200,000 jackpot should the Northern Irishman capitalise on his six-shot lead and win the Open Championship on Sunday. McIlroy’s father placed a £100 bet 10 years ago that his son would win golf’s oldest major before the age of 26 and the 25-year-old is the overwhelming favourite to secure his third major title after a stunning finish to his third round, including two eagles in the last three holes. He has already won the US Open in 2011 and the PGA Championship in 2012, but McIlroy must claim

WASHINGTON — THE thing about him is, he just keeps going. At 67, he continues to be, as Anna Quindlen once wrote, like one of those inflatable toys with sand weighting the bottom — you knock him over and he pops back up. As Hillary stumbles and President Obama slumps, Bill Clinton keeps getting more popular. The women, the cheesy behavior, the fund-raising excesses, the self-pity, the adolescent narcissism, the impeachment, the charges of racially tinged insults against Obama in 2008, the foundation dishabille — all that percussive drama has faded to a mellow saxophone riff for many Americans.
