Ironic Moment as Rocket
Interrupts French Reporter
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Gil Ronen    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 8/3/2014 2:04:32 PM     Post Reply
A reporter for France 24, Gallagher Fenwick, was reporting from Gaza Friday and explaining how its residents´ “food security” has been affected by the fighting there, when something unexpected happened. (snip) "This was a rocket,”, a rattled Fenwick told his audience, “this was a rocket, rockets were just shot right next to where we are standing, so I´m not going to stand here very long because usually there´s a strike just moments after this occurs.” The occurrence proves Israel´s contention that Hamas fires rockets from among civilians, using them as human shields and manipulating any civilian casualties that are thus

Gay Leaders Upset by Low
CDC Population Numbers:
´Political Influence Matters´
Breitbart Big Government, by Austin Ruse    Original Article

Gay leaders are expressing alarm at the just-released numbers from the Center for Disease Control that place the percentage of Americans identifying as homosexual at only 1.6% of the adult population. That would mean the total number of gays in American is roughly 3.8 million, roughly 1.5 million less than the total number of American Methodists. Scout, who goes by one name, a spokesman for CenterLink´s Network of LGBT Health Equity, told the Washington Post, "The truth is, numbers matter, and political influence matters." Most Americans believe the population of gays is exponentially larger. For almost half a century,

The situation outside the White House mirrors the situation inside it. On Saturday, a national march for Gaza took place in front of the White House. A pro-Israeli counter-protester (U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran Manny Vega) was standing on 16th and H Streets with Israeli and American flags. This is where the video begins recording. He was punched, pulled, kicked, and even spat on. Manny Vega had participated in the takedown of memorial barricades during Obama’s shutdown. Manny Vega, an undeterred retired U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran, spoke to Breitbart News about the incident. “What brought me out here is this sort of



Defund the UNRWA

The UNRWA is on the front lines of the Hamas War in Gaza. In the headlines, its schools are forever being fired on or found to be stockpiling rockets. If individual Gazans are being used as human shields, the UNRWA often seems as if it is one big organizational human shield. But the UNRWA isn’t Hamas’ human shield. The UNRWA is Hamas. (Snip) Why does Hamas, which is obsessed with brainwashing the next generation into martyrdom, allow a foreign organization to run an educational system for 232,000 pupils? It’s because in Gaza, Hamas and the UNRWA are the same thing. The UNRWA’s Gaza staff has its own union.

Glenn Beck appeared on Reliable Sources Sunday morning and discussed his departure from Fox News, how he thinks he’s changed as a political commentator, and how many of the various apocalyptic warnings he’s issued over the years are allegedly coming to pass. Beck recounted the night before he left Fox, a story that involved Bono and an alternate ending for Spider-Man for some reason. He said he became ashamed of the opulent lifestyle he had developed while a Fox host and realized, “If you don’t leave now, you’ll lose your soul. Because I was just starting to want it.” Beck

CNN anchor Candy Crowley called out Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) Sunday for claiming that illegal immigrants crossing the Rio Grande have committed thousands of homicides. Perry said his constituents in Texas are concerned about “the 90 percent-plus of individuals who don’t get talked about enough that are coming into the United States illegally and committing substantial crimes.” He said that the 203,000 illegal immigrants who have come into Texas since 2008 and booked into Texas county jails have been responsible for over 3,000 homicides and almost 8,000 sexual assaults. Crowley, the host of CNN´s "State of the Union," called

GameStop stores in the city received a mandate from corporate headquarters after Philadelphia police requested they implement harsher security measures, gaming blog Kotaku reported. GameStop says it is following a local law that allows them to collect fingerprints, which then go into a database used by law enforcement to help track down people selling stolen goods, a local CBS affiliate reported. Customers outside one GameStop in Center City weren’t too pleased with the new policy. “I really don’t appreciate it. You fingerprinted me like I’m in a police district. No, I’m at a game store,” a customer told the station.



WH: Obama undecided

White House officials are downplaying stories that President Obama is prepared to take executive action on immigration that would allow millions of undocumented people to stay in the United States. "The reports you´re seeing are uninformed speculation," White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said on ABC´s This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Pfeiffer said Obama asked the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security to "present him with recommendations by the end of the summer." Those agencies have not yet reported back. "So let´s wait and see what those are before we make judgments about them," Pfeiffer

GOP sees signs of Jewish

Republicans believe that the deepening crisis in Gaza could ultimately loosen the grip that the Democratic Party has traditionally held upon American Jewish voters. While declarations of a rift between Democrats and the Jewish community have proven premature in the past, things could be different this time, they assert. Just in the last week, the Obama administration used unusually strong language to condemn the shelling of a United Nations-run school in Gaza, apparently by the Israeli military, and drafted a document for a cease-fire that Israeli officials denounced as favoring Hamas.

If you get tired of mud-slinging in the pigpens and fast-talking from the carnival barkers at the Iowa State Fair, you´ll have plenty of chances this month to take refuge with the politicians. The Des Moines Register´s political soapbox will return to the fair Aug. 7 through 16, with a long list of state and national political figures scheduled to appear. Iowa Republican Gov. Terry Branstad and Democratic challenger Jack Hatch are on the bill. So are Bruce Braley and Joni Ernst, the Democrat and Republican facing off in one of the most heated U.S. Senate races of the year.

Obama’s Impeachment Game

Something rather dangerous is happening in American politics right now, all the more so for being taken for granted by many of the people watching it unfold. I do not mean the confusion of House Republicans, or the general gridlock in Congress, which are impeding legislative action on the child migrant crisis (among other matters). Incompetence and gridlock are significant problems, indeed severe ones, but they’re happening within the context of a constitutional system that allows for — and can survive — congressional inaction. What is different — more cynical and more destructive — is the course President Obama is

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz bagged three pheasants on a hunt with U.S. Rep. Steve King in northwest Iowa back in October. "I was laughing," the Texas senator said in a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, "because every time anyone shot a bird, everyone would call out, ´Good shot, senator.´ I told Steve, ´This is the only hunt I´ve ever been on where I got credited for more birds than I had shells.´" As Cruz touched down in the presidential testing grounds of Iowa again today, he was yet again a hot topic on the national stage.

Following statements from Representative Steve King (R-IA) that President Barack Obama was creating a “constitutional crisis” with his executive actions on immigration that would ultimately leave the House with no choice but impeachment, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked Representative Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) how the GOP’s impeachment chatter was different than bills filed by the Democrats to impeach George W Bush. “It’s completely different,” Jeffries said. “Then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) clearly said impeachment is off the table.” “Basically that’s what [House Speaker] John Boehner (R-OH) said this week, too,” Wallace said.

Destroying the Senate -

Procedural changes impede the chamber’s traditional deliberative function Americans hold the Senate in low esteem, but the situation is even worse than most understand. The Senate is dysfunctional today because its current leadership has acted to destroy the institution itself. Job-approval ratings for Congress have been in the teens or single digits for more than three years. A poll last year found that Congress is less popular than head lice, root canals and traffic jams. The “good” news is that Congress is slightly more popular than playground bullies, telemarketers and North Korea.

Gov. Rick Perry of Texas recently ordered 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the state’s border with Mexico to assist the Border Patrol in responding to the growing crisis of illegal entry.[SNIP]The only problem is that Perry’s deployment order is symbolic, not serious, and it won’t do any good until it becomes serious. It is unlikely that Perry is any more likely than any other politician to put his own personal interest second, and the needs of the nation first, but the fact of the matter is we don’t need 1,000 troops on the border, we need 10,000, maybe more.

When he left Guatemala, 16-year-old Jonas Cua thought the professional smugglers his family had hired would get him across the border and on a van to his uncle in Hudson County. But he soon learned otherwise. The smugglers, known as coyotes, told him and the other teens and children traveling with him that when they reached the United States they would be left for U.S. immigration officials to find. And sure enough, his trip was cut short in Texas, where he was detained by Border Patrol agents. (Snip) On Friday, Cua reached his uncle, who lives in Hudson County,

A few days ago, I visited Kansas City to say a few words about our economy and meet with folks who wrote me letters -- and I snuck in some good barbeque, too. On Friday, we learned that our economy added about 200,000 jobs in July. Our private sector has added 9.9 million jobs over the last 53 months, the longest streak of private-sector job creation in our country’s history. Companies are investing. Consumers are spending. And for the first time in more than a decade, business leaders around the world have declared that the world’s number one place to invest

Islamic State grabs Iraqi dam,

BAGHDAD - Islamic State fighters seized control of Iraq´s biggest dam, an oilfield and three more towns on Sunday after inflicting their first major defeat on Kurdish forces since sweeping through the region in June. Capture of the Mosul Dam after an offensive of barely 24 hours could give the Sunni militants the ability to flood major Iraqi cities, sharply raising the stakes in their bid to topple Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki´s Shi´ite-led government. Islamic State, which sees Iraq´s majority Shi´ites as apostates who deserve to be killed, also seized the Ain Zalah oil field, adding to four others already under

BAGHDAD — Police cars have been repainted to say "Islamic police." Women are forbidden from wearing bright colors and prints. The homes of Shiites and others have signs stating they are property of the Islamic State. And everyone walks in fear amid a new reign of terror. That´s what life is like in Mosul, Tikrit and other cities in northern and western Iraq under the control of Islamic extremists after their lightning-fast military campaign that overwhelmed the Iraqi army in June. The new normal for these residents means daily decrees about attire and raids to root out religious minorities in

The BBC has enraged Muslim staff after holding a hog roast to celebrate the Commonwealth Games - under the windows of the Arabic TV service. An entire pig was spit-roasted in the courtyard of New Broadcasting House, central London, with wafts of meat drifting up to the predominantly Muslim office. Staff in the department whose religion bans them from eating pork blasted the ´horror´ at spotting the carcass on their lunch break. The event on Friday, celebrating the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, was held just days after the close of Ramadan, a month of fasting for Muslims for spiritual reflection.

SPIEGEL has learned from reliable sources that Israeli intelligence eavesdropped on US Secretary of State John Kerry during Middle East peace negotiations. In addition to the Israelis, at least one other intelligence service also listened in as Kerry mediated last year between Israel, the Palestinians and the Arab states, several intelligence service sources told SPIEGEL. Revelations of the eavesdropping could further damage already tense relations between the US government and Israel. During the peak stage of peace talks last year, Kerry spoke regularly with high-ranking negotiating partners in the Middle East. At the time, some of these calls were not made

At Chapman School in Nebraska, resourceful students hawk pizza and cookie dough to raise money for school supplies, field trips and an eighth-grade excursion to Washington. They peddle chocolate bars to help fund the yearbook. But the sales won´t be so sweet starting this fall. Campus bake sales—a mainstay of school fundraisers—are going on a diet. A federal law that aims to curb childhood obesity means that, in dozens of states, bake sales must adhere to nutrition requirements that could replace cupcakes and brownies with fruit cups and granola bars.

Turning his back to the crowd at the podium, Reed caught a pass from former Buffalo Bills teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Jim Kelly on the stage at Fawcett Stadium on Saturday night. The two then shared a long, emotional hug. It was a fitting finish for a tandem that set a then-NFL record by hooking up 663 times in Buffalo. And it was

This applies only to those who get their water service from the city of Toledo´s water treatment plant.
