The Iraqi Army’s Alamo:
Standoff in Tikrit
Daily Beast, by Jacob Siegel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/20/2014 12:26:52 PM     Post Reply
ISIS fighters say they captured Camp Speicher in Tikrit on Friday. The Iraqi Army says the vital outpost is under its control. In this web of propaganda, who´s telling the truth? Since Tikrit fell to ISIS forces in early June, recapturing the city—Saddam Hussein’s hometown—has been a centerpiece of the Iraqi Army’s campaign. But despite Baghdad’s efforts, pouring soldiers and resources into the battle there, the fighting has dragged on for weeks with only fleeting gains. At stake in Sunni-dominated Tirkit is the Iraqi government’s ability to defeat ISIS and retake the country. So far they have little to show

Expert: Lake Hopatcong snake an anaconda,
but I was ´sworn to keep my mouth shut´

JEFFERSON — Reptile specialist Gerald Andrejcak told NJ.com Friday that the giant snake loose in Lake Hopatcong is a green anaconda — though he´d previously only called it a boa constrictor — and that he was "sworn to secrecy" by a local animal control official to avoid causing a panic. "It´s a green anaconda," Andrejcak said. "I´ve known its species (since last week), but I was sworn to keep my mouth shut by local officials to avoid causing a panic. Now that there´s a panic, I´m going on the record." Over the last few weeks, media reports about the snake have

Cruz to Harry Reid: Get Out of ‘Ritz-

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) characterization of the U.S.-Mexico border as “secure” by telling his colleague to come take a look for himself. “President Obama and Harry Reid both engage debates divorced from the facts and divorced from the reality,” Cruz said on Fox News Sunday. “Harry Reid lives in the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C., and I’m sure from his perspective the border seems secure. I would invite Harry Reid to come with me down Texas and see the border.” “I’ll tell you who is holding these kids ransom,” Cruz continued, Cruz continued, “Harry Reid and the

Tiger Woods, Tom Watson,
and the Ryder Cup
CBS Sports, by Kyle Porter    Original Article

With the season winding down and Tiger Woods actually playing some golf these days a lot of eyes are on what´s going to happen with the Ryder Cup team. US captain Tom Watson shot 68 on Sunday at the British Open which was seven (!) shots better than Woods´ 75 and the cap´n finished five shots ahead of Woods for the tournament. Woods said he was rusty because he hasn´t played very much since his back surgery in March, but when asked about the Ryder Cup Woods said he would pick himself (of course he would). "I would say yes,"

Fox News Sunday reports on a hot mic that caught John Kerry mocking Israel´s "pinpoint operation" against Hamas in Gaza: "It's a hell of a pinpoint operation," Kerry was recorded as saying, in the middle of network interviews. "It's a hell of a pinpoint operation." "We've got to get over there. Thank you, John. I think, John, we ought to go tonight. I think it's crazy to be sitting around."

U.S. offers leases off Jersey
Shore for wind energy projects
The Record [Hackensack, NJ], by James M. O´Neill    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 7/20/2014 11:42:36 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration last week announced plans to sell leases for nearly 344,000 acres of seafloor off the New Jersey coastline to companies that want to build wind energy turbines, a significant step toward the development of wind farms off the Jersey Shore. The area extends from Cape May Court House north for 60 miles to Barnegat, at least seven miles offshore. (Snip) "As the devastating effects of climate change are coming sharply into focus, we should be concentrating our resources on clean and renewable forms of energy, rather than capitulating to the deep pockets of Big Oil," said Sen.

Tiger Woods finishes British

HOYLAKE, England – Tiger Woods drove away from Royal Liverpool Golf Club an hour before leader Rory McIlroy teed off Sunday in the final round of the 143rd British Open, another disappointing result in a major championship in his wake. After a promising 69 in the first round, the former world No. 1´s wheels spun out of control as he looked – and then sounded – very much like the man who needed much more time to get ready following back surgery March 31. With a closing 75, Woods, who didn´t drive the ball well all week and putted poorly, finished near

The World’s Second-Richest Man Thinks
You Should Work Only 3 Days a Week

Carlos Slim, the world’s second-richest man finally said the one thing we’ve all been waiting for a self-made billionaire to say: work less. Way less. At a business conference in Paraguay, the telecommunications magnate said it was time for a “radical overhaul” in the way people work, the Financial Times reports: people should only work three days a week. “With three work days a week, we would have more time to relax; for quality of life,” Slim said. “Having four days [off] would be very important to generate new entertainment activities and other ways of being occupied.” Well-said, Mr. Slim. Well-said.

What we learned from
liberals at Netroots Nation

DETROIT — At a high-profile gathering of progressives this week, Hillary Clinton was tolerated, Barack Obama was pitied, and Elizabeth Warren was treated like a hero. The annual liberal confab known as Netroots Nation brought together around 3,000 activists converged for several days of campaign training, a protest or two, and speeches from Warren, Vice President Joe Biden and other Democrat. And while the 2014 election is just months away, many in this crowd were far more focused on the 2016 race for president, a contest they hope will allow for a showdown between the pro-business and populist strains of the Democratic Party.

Using information within the TAGGS system for Health and Human Services we are able to identify the recipients for Grants specifically designated for “Unaccompanied Alien Children”, or UAC’s. With that data, a few more search tools, some time and a little more research, we are able to identify the locations of facilities throughout the country where the HHS grants are being directed and the UAC’s are being transferred/housed. There are essentially two broad types: Residence Care, and Transitional to Foster Care Services.From the FY 2014 HHS Grants we can identify the communities where direct HHS UAC funds have been sent.

Gaza City - Hundreds of Palestinians fled in panic into Gaza City on Sunday as Israeli troops focused their firepower on the nearby town of Shaja´ia. The shelling and bombing killed at least 60 people and wounded 300, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. In previous days, Israel warned residents to flee, through calls, text messages and dropping fliers that said "it is the intention of the IDF to carry out aerial strikes against terror sites and operatives" in the area. (Snip) But the IDF said Hamas "ordered them to stay" and "put them in the line of fire." More than 410 people in Gaza have died in the fighting between Israel and Hamas,

PM to Gaza Arabs:
Hamas Will Get You Killed
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Yosef Berger    Original Article

In an interview with the BBC on Sunday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had a special message for Gaza residents: Get rid of Hamas before they get you killed. “We are shooting only at the sites where terrorists are shooting at us,” Netanyahu said. “We have asked the civilian population to leave, but Hamas is making them stay, turning them into human shields.” As Netanyahu spoke in the interview, Hamas was in the midst of violating yet another “humanitarian” cease-fire that the terror group had requested. Via the Red Cross, Hamas asked for the cease-fire to allow it remove dead bodies from the Shejiaya neighborhood in Gaza,

Humoody´s way: Blinded at 2, Snohomish

Click, click, click. Click, click. Click, click. Click, click, click. That´s Humoody Jauda Smith using sound to see. At 11, he´s taking strides toward self-reliance with a different kind of sight. He was blinded at 2 when insurgents shot him in the face in Iraq. His family sent him from Baghdad to Snohomish with hope that American doctors could restore his vision. After discovering that wasn´t possible, his host parents, Randy and Julie Robinett Smith, fought to keep him here. Now, they´re giving him the chance to learn to live independently. And he´s surpassing expectations using new techniques and technologies.

Arizona´s economy lifted

Arizonans — and the companies that do business here — have a complex relationship with government. Its tax ­obligations, inefficiencies, regulations and occasional ­incompetence are hard to take for many. But the money from Washington, D.C., is a powerful force in the state´s economy. Many people rely on it as a sole source of income; many businesses cultivate it to grow their profits. For decades, Keith and ­Dorothy Stebbins lived comfortably in California on their incomes. They worked in sales for the oil and hotel industries and invested little. They retired to Arizona, where they now live off Social Security

Justin Amash´s support for free
enterprise earns enmity of Big Business
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has jumped into a Republican congressional primary in Michigan, trying to defeat incumbent Rep. Justin Amash. Amash´s crime: being stubbornly consistent in opposing big government. The Chamber´s endorsement of Amash´s opponent helps clarify some things that have long been true, but which have been muddled in the public eye and used against conservatives. The first myth put to rest: Libertarianism and free enterprise are defenses of Big Business. The second myth exposed: Challenging an incumbent in a primary is somehow impious or unsporting. Amash is arguably the strongest defender of free enterprise in the House. His rating from the

Do Republicans want to repeal Democrats´

Washington Examiner, by Mark Tapscott    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/20/2014 10:14:41 AM     Post Reply
Washington Examiner columnist David Limbaugh had a column Thursday that deserves careful and thoughtful reading, especially by those to whom it is mainly addressed. What if the GOP wins the White House and Congress in 2016? What then, GOP, Limbaugh asks. "I would wager that many of my Establishment friends will continue to advise restraint, urging us not to drastically roll back Obama´s liberal policies, either because they´ll be horrified about the next election or because they have really, in the end, lost their stomach for political battle and their taste for free market principles," Limbaugh writes. "I suspect that many of them

“Ok, surprise me.” The enemy always does. For years Hamas has been working on a secret weapon: tunnels. (Snip) The current model of al-Qaeda is much more sophisticated than the original, with a minimum 7,000 jihadists with Western passports supported by intelligence, signals and other specialist cells. While they have waxed, the West has deliberately waned. The Obama administration has defined the threat away by tying the War on Terror to a campaign talking point. They must now maintain the fiction that “Osama bin Laden is dead and Detroit is alive” because that was an electoral promise which on no

If one gets leftist materials and articles from the Palestinian Arab perspective, one has to realize, which many avid leftists do not, that Islam has an essential element of cult-sanctioned lying: It is Taqqiyyah, and means for Western purposes of journalism and reportage that one can simply never believe materials, data and stats given to non-umma (world of Islam) recipients -- it is through and through dishonest and deliberately misleading. Taqqiyyah permits and endorses lying by the ´faithful´ for the protection and support of Islam. The translation of this tenet through the centuries means unwarranted tweaking and meretriciousness on as many

It dropped last night and it´s unlikely to pass, but Sen. Ted Cruz injected himself into the border crisis like Paul Stanley rising out of a stage elevator at the start of a KISS show. True, Cruz is the elected U.S. senator from the state with the greatest current influx of child migrants. But his colleague, Sen. John Cornyn, was trying to get a coalition together for a small bill reversing the 2008 child trafficking provision that created a special processing system for migrants from Central America.* Cruz is going for a full defunding of President Obama´s Deferred Status for Childhood

While the liberal media establishment have a thinly disguised soft spot for massive leaker Edward Snowden and his enabler Glenn Greenwald, the editorial writers at Investor’s Business Daily offered an incredible take this week on how these men are “aiding and abetting the Islamist enemy.”They released the names of several Muslim terrorist targets under surveillance by the NSA and FBI in a new expose titled "Under Surveillance: Meet the Muslim-American Leaders the FBI and NSA Have Been Spying On." The New York Times lapped it up. IBD revealed how close Greenwald is to a terrorist-defending media watchdog: One of the

WASHINGTON — As smoke billowed from the downed Malaysian jetliner in the fields of eastern Ukraine on Thursday, President Obama pressed ahead with his schedule: a cheeseburger with fries at the Charcoal Pit in Delaware, a speech about infrastructure and two splashy fund-raisers in New York City. The potential for jarring split-screen imagery was clear. Reports of charred bodies and a ground-to-air missile attack from Eastern Europe dominated television screens while photographers snapped pictures of a grinning Mr. Obama holding a toddler at the restaurant. The presidential motorcade was later filmed pulling up to Trump Place Apartments, the Riverside Avenue venue

There is not very much good to say about the life and career of Vladimir Lenin, but give the pickled old monster this much: He cut through more than two centuries’ worth of bull and straight to the heart of all politics with his simple question: “Who? Whom?” Which is to say: Who acts? Who is acted upon? Even here in the land of the free, meditating upon that question can be an uncomfortable exercise. The foundation of classical liberalism, and of the American order, is not the rule of law, a written constitution, freedom of speech and worship, one-man/one-vote democracy,

Beck complained about a lack of coverage of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) joining his. “Nobody´s reading [The Blaze´s coverage of Ted Cruz going to border]. Our viewers and our readers are not even reading it. That should be the number-one retweeted story. If you like Ted Cruz [you should promote this story.] Where´s Breitbart on that story?

One of the reasons people have grown so angry over Obama´s manufactured border crisis is that everything we are told is a lie. That´s consistent with the core Amnesty Caucus belief that the benighted knuckle-dragging xenophobic citizens of the United States have nothing to say about immigration policy - it´s a decision that will be made by the Ruling Class, in accordance with their political and economic interests. You taxpaying chumps will be told whatever the Ruling Class thinks you need to hear, whenever they think you need to hear it, with the truth either suppressed or kept on ice
