A fight for Israel’s existence
Washington Post, by Richard Cohen    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/21/2014 10:19:52 PM     Post Reply
srael fought its first war, in 1948, against five Arab nations — Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan — as well as the Palestinians. In the prediction of the fairly new CIA, the outcome was never in doubt: “Without substantial outside aid in terms of manpower and material, they [the Jews] will be able to hold out no longer than two years.” It has now been 66 years, but I fear that sooner or later, the CIA’s conclusion could turn out to be right. It does not seem that way at the moment. The five Arab armies of 1948 are

Watch Some Marines Confront a Man

At a military funeral this weekend in West Palm Beach, Florida, a couple of possibly retired Marines confronted a man dressed in a U.S. Army dress uniform. At first the conversation, posted on the Facebook page U.S Army W.T.F! moments, is cordial, then the Marines started to get suspicious of the alleged “sergeant major.” During the conversation, the Marines catch him in one too many lies about everything from violating uniform code to wearing the wrong ribbons and medals. The man also called himself a sergeant major, a military policeman, and a special forces operator. He also claims to have won a

Hamas, Israel signal
unwillingness to compromise

GAZA CITY — The Islamist militant organization Hamas said Monday that it would not agree to a cease-fire with Israel until its demands were met, as Israel warned that its incursion into the Gaza Strip could continue for days or even weeks. The stark assessments offered little hope for quick progress toward ending a 14-day-old conflict that has inflicted heavy costs on each side. Seven more Israeli soldiers were killed in fierce fighting Monday, bringing the Israeli military toll to 25 dead, more than twice as many as in Israel’s last Gaza ground incursion in 2009 and the highest toll

Secretary Kerry’s Hot-Mic Israel
Critique: He Has No Excuse
National Review Online, by David French    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/21/2014 10:13:07 PM     Post Reply
When Secretary of State Kerry criticized Israel’s military operations in Gaza by calling them a “hell of a pinpoint operation,” he not only validated Hamas’s human-shield strategy, he handed Hamas a key propaganda victory. And he had no excuse for doing so. Unlike the vast majority of Americans — including a vast majority of Americans in “public service” — Secretary Kerry has actual combat experience. He’s fully aware of the enormous destructive capability of a modern military, and he’s thus fully aware of what a truly unrestrained Israeli military operation would look like. Further, as a senior leader in the

Government agents ´directly involved´
in most high-profile US terror plots
Guardian [UK], by Spencer Ackerman    Original Article
Posted By: mark34- 7/21/2014 9:39:40 PM     Post Reply
Nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the "direct involvement" of government agents or informants, a new report says. Some of the controversial "sting" operations "were proposed or led by informants", bordering on entrapment by law enforcement. Yet the courtroom obstacles to proving entrapment are significant, one of the reasons the stings persist. (Snip) "In some cases the FBI may have created terrorists out of law-abiding individuals by suggesting the idea of taking terrorist action or encouraging the target to act," the report alleges.

Government corruption on the rampage
Washington Times, by Richard Rahn    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 7/21/2014 9:29:09 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is arguably the most corrupt administration in U.S. history. Corruption destroys civil society and economic growth by undermining the rule of law and protection of private property. Corruption takes many forms, from the simple payment to a government official for a favor, to the failure of government employees to do what they are paid to do, to gross abuse of power. The president and his senior officials swear to uphold the Constitution and the law — which means following the law as written, and not as they wish it were written. The failure to apply equal justice to

Time for Ukraine to divide
Sydney Morning Herald [Australia], by Paul Sheehan    Original Article

Ukraine, as we know it, is dead. The country is irrevocably broken into two by ethnicity, language, geography and now blood. The sooner the people of Ukraine accept this, and the European Community, the Russians and the Americans accept this, the sooner the nation can divide into its two natural parts and move on. It is more than 20 years since the orderly, democratic, bloodless dissolution of Czechoslovakia took place on January 1, 1993, when the Czech Republic and Slovakia came into being as two sovereign nations. Like Ukraine, this was a nation divided with geographic neatness between language and

Lies About Serving In U.S. Military
Breitbart Conversation, by Javier Manjarres    Original Article

Charlie Crist Republican Richard DeNapoli has really stepped in it this time. The former Democrat and Broward County GOP boss lied to Broward Republican voters in 2010 when he stated in a letter that he had served in the United States Marine Corps. DeNapoli was running for Treasurer of the Broward GOP, and one night before the group’s monthly meeting, DeNapoli was confronted about lying about his military service. DeNapoli’s lie was spelled out on a candidacy letter he was distributing on all of the chairs that were already put out for the event. When asked about why he stated

Former Missouri linebacker, SEC Defensive Player of the Year and openly-gay human being Michael Sam was eventually drafted by the Rams, though it wasn´t until the seventh round when St. Louis made history. Had Super Bowl-winning coach, NBC analyst and noted conservative Tony Dungy been running the Rams, he "wouldn´t have taken" Sam. Why? "Things will happen" apparently. "I wouldn´t have taken him,´´ Dungy told the Tampa Bay Tribune. “Not because I don´t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn´t want to deal with all of it.

President Barack Obama has talked politics with David Letterman and slow jammed the news with Jimmy Fallon, but he has yet to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live. TMZ claimed that was about to change this week when they reported that Obama would appear on Jimmy Kimmel’s show this Wednesday during an already-scheduled trip to Los Angeles. The site quoted “ABC network sources” who said Obama would travel to the El Capitan theatre on Hollywood Boulevard to tape a segment with Kimmel that would be at least partly “serious.” Sources at the LAPD reportedly confirmed the news to TMZ, saying the

ABC is denying that President Obama is booked to appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” during his trip to Los Angeles this week, when he is scheduled to raise money for the Democratic National Committee and visit a local community college to deliver a speech on job training. TMZ reported that Obama would come to his Hollywood studio to tape a special segment. But an ABC spokeswoman said that the report “is inaccurate and he is not booked on the show.” Kimmel’s reps also issued a denial.

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa — Texas Gov. Rick Perry, seeking political redemption in Iowa, spent his weekend waiting almost two hours in a school cafeteria to speak to Republican activists, attending local church services and eating barbecue with fellow veterans. The former U.S. Air Force pilot´s two-day visit was his fourth trip to the state since the 2012 election, in what even he describes as a disastrous first try at the White House. "I know first impressions matter, but second impressions do as well," Perry, 64, said Sunday in an interview in Clear Lake, Iowa. "This country has been about second chances a

The town of Reus in the Catalan province of Tarragona has become the first in Spain to ban the wearing of full-face veils in public, a move which follows a judgment on July 1 by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) which found that a French law banning the wearing of the veil did not breach the Convention on Human Rights. The Strasbourg judges said the French ban was justified because of respect for life in society: "The barrier raised against others by a veil concealing the face in public could undermine the notion of ´living together,´" the judges said.

IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane said in transcribed congressional testimony that more IRS officials experienced computer crashes, bringing the total number of crash victims to “less than 20,” and also said that the agency does not know if the lost emails are still backed up somewhere.

While eying a potential presidential run that would surely be boosted by deep-pocketed super PACs, Hillary Clinton said Monday evening that she’s open to supporting a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, which opened the door to the outside groups and the flood of money that poured into the political process with them. Taking questions from Facebook users at the social media giant’s California headquarters Monday evening, Clinton expressed some interest in the idea. “I would consider supporting an amendment among these lines that would prevent the abuse of our political system by excessive amounts of money

Russia´s billionaire businessmen are ´horrified´ at the prospect of crippling economic sanctions in response to Moscow´s involvement in Ukraine, but are too terrified of president Vladimir Putin to say so openly, it has been claimed. The U.S. has already imposed a raft of sanctions against Russian companies and individuals with Britain and the Netherlands pushing for the EU to impose even tougher measures following the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. Additional U.S. measures may be imposed in the next few weeks and financial experts believe Russia´s $2 trillion economy could be pushed into recession. According to Igor Bunin, who heads the

A new Clinton mystery has hit New York City and Washington, D.C. with the surprise display of posters declaring the Clintons as “America´s Most Dangerous Family" and "America´s Lannisters." Pulled by advertising bikes over the weekend, the posters use themes from TV´s "Game of Thrones" and "House of Cards" in portraying Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton -- and advisor James Carville -- as evil, though they don´t indicate exactly what the advertising is for. One of the ad posters appears similar to the style of the hit Netflix series, "House of Cards." The poster is in black and white and shows Bill

Bill Clinton reportedly has a buxom blond mistress who visits so often when Hillary Clinton isn’t home in Chappaqua that the former president’s Secret Service detail have given her an unofficial code name: Energizer.

Fighting broke out near the railway station at the heart of the rebel stronghold of Donetsk on Monday in what separatists said was an attempt by government forces to seize back the east Ukrainian city. The government in Kiev denied sending the regular army into the centre of Donetsk, which the separatists captured in April, but said small ´self-organised´ pro-Ukrainian groups were fighting the pro-Russian rebels in the city. Four people were killed in clashes near the railway station and close to the airport outside Donetsk, local health officials said in the industrial city which was home to about one million people

HOUSTON, Texas--The U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee approved a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 that includes $5.508 billion for Immigration and Customs Enforcement operations. Included in that amount is more than $87 million for the transportation of illegal immigrants--most often via plane--from the U.S.-Mexico border to federal facilities around the nation. The FY 2015 bill summary states that the federal government will provide "$87.6 million above the request for the transportation of unaccompanied immigrant children– often via commercial or charter aircraft – from DHS custody to the legally required shelters operated by the Office of Refugee

They are not trying to evade them. Why send soldiers to confront these kids?” “Militarizing our border is the wrong response to the arrival of children,” Castro continued. “I remain hopeful that our state can provide a
