After Foley Beheading, Obama Making
Golf Getaways Difficult to Defend
Mediaite, by Joe Concha    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/20/2014 5:47:57 PM     Post Reply
Like Democrats and many Republicans alike, I’ve defended the president regarding the vacations or golf excursions he has chosen to take during his tenure. Obvious statement here, but it’s a stressful, intense, non-stop job. Just look at the way every president ages so quickly upon entering the office. Downtime and reflection is a must, and as a not-so-great southpaw golfer myself (4-5 times per year), it can be a cathartic, relaxing experience to recharge the batteries (when hitting it straight, anyway). As for playing too often, Mr. Obama has played 190 rounds as president, which sounds like a lot until considering Dwight

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder. Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness

How does a grand jury
work in St. Louis County?
St. Louis Post Dispatch (MO), by Kim Bell    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/20/2014 5:26:08 PM     Post Reply
What goes on inside a grand jury room is secret. The prosecutor presents the evidence. No judge is in the room. No defense lawyer. The accused is invited to testify, but his lawyer can´t be in the room. Grand juries are known for doing what a prosecutor wants. As the old saying goes, a grand jury would indict a ham sandwich if that´s what the prosecutor asked. Prosecutors feeling the heat in a controversial case, some say, can avoid making a decision and give it to a grand jury. The standing grand jury in St. Louis County meets every Wednesday during a

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl plans to get out of the Army and pursue a college education once the investigation into his disappearance is completed, his lawyer told CBS News. In a phone interview Tuesday, attorney Gene Fidell said that his client feels like he is in a holding pattern and wants to get on with his life. On Tuesday, the Army said that its senior leadership had been informed that the Army investigator, Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, felt that he has further work to do and will now likely submit his report in September.

The U.S. State Department has asked for 300 additional American military personnel to beef up security at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and at U.S. facilities at the Baghdad airport, a senior U.S. official told NBC News on Wednesday. The request was described as under consideration by the Pentagon. The official could not identify or discuss any additional threat to those facilities or to American personnel in Iraq. The U.S. military has 849 personnel in Iraq. The early planning suggests that about 150 of the personnel would be Marines from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, which is aboard the USS

John Kerry Calls for
Disproportionate Response to
ISIS Beheading an American

Secretary of State John Kerry offered remarks in reaction to the Islamic State’s murder of American journalist James Foley today. The State Department tweeted the highlights. (snip) For the record, yes, IS/ISIS/ISIL should be crushed. Tellingly, neither Kerry nor President Obama has offered a plan and they are not gathering a coalition of the willing to get the job done. Obama went back to golf this afternoon. Crushing IS would be right. But it’s not a proportional response to the murder of one American. Hamas routinely kidnaps Israeli citizens, murders them and leaves their bodies by the side of the road. Hamas

The Next 48 Hours Are Critical

Tomorrow, Wednesday, a Grand Jury is scheduled in Ferguson Missouri. The goal is to sort through the evidence and determine if Police Officer Darren Wilson should be charged in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Based on what is currently known, and understanding the way the Brown family attorney’s roll, we can assemble a general construct of what’s possible over the next 48 hours. A grand jury is NOT in the best interests of Daryl Parks, Benjamin Crump and the Brown family, in their efforts toward financial justice.

Brooke Baldwin played an exasperated host to CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill and radio host Larry Elder, whose discussion over Barack Obama’s actions on the Ferguson protests quickly, quickly fell apart into them yelling past each other for the entire segment. It started off as two men taking two very different positions on the root causes of Ferguson: Hill argued that the debate should be centered on institutionalized racism in law enforcement, while Elder countered that the problem lay within the black community and the lack of paternal figures. But when the conversation turned towards mental health in the African-American

After a week of rioting and confrontations in Ferguson, Missouri, filmmaker Spike Lee said he hoped that "things will really blow up" if Officer Darren Wilson is tried and the people of Ferguson are unhappy with the verdict. Lee made his incendiary remarks on Tuesday´s Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, saying that, even though he does not have the facts, "something smells bad in Ferguson, and it´s not just tear gas."

Appalling

The president is appalled. Indeed he said this afternoon that "the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of Jim Foley by the terrorist group, ISIL." The act of violence that killed Jim Foley, the president continued, "shocks the conscience of the entire world." What happens in the age of Obama to a group that does something that appalls and shocks the conscience of the entire world? Nothing. President Obama said that "no just God would stand for what they did yesterday, and for what they do every single day." I am no theologian. I pray that the president is right. But I know that we cannot sit back and wait for a just God to bring evildoers to judgment here below.

President Obama lashed out on Wednesday at the terrorists who beheaded a US journalist and pledged to stop the militants — and then he darted off to a Martha’a Vineyard golf course with some of his buddies. "A group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century,” Obama said, using the acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. He added that the international community should work together to “extract this cancer so that it does not spread.”

One Big Question Surrounds The Murder
Of US Journalist James Foley By ISIS
Business Insider, by Michael B. Kelley    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/20/2014 3:31:22 PM     Post Reply
Following the grisly murder of an American journalist by extremist militants, one key question remains: How did ISIS abduct James Foley, who was widely considered to be in the custody of groups loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad? In the words of Mic politics editor Stefan Becket: "The prevailing assumption was that Foley was being held by pro-Assad forces, or by the regime itself. How did he get from there to ISIS?" The FBI believes an “organized gang" abducted Foley, who was working for GlobalPost, shortly after he left an internet café on Nov. 22, 2012. In May 2013, GlobalPost President Philip Balboni

American voters says they would prefer President Barack Obama work with Congress rather than use executive action to address the illegal immigration crisis at the border, according to a detailed new opinion poll on immigration, illegal immigrants, and the state of the American worker. The poll, conducted by veteran Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway, also found that Americans disapprove of Obama’s record on immigration. And as one Republican aide on Capitol Hill describes it, the results of the poll are an “utter repudiation” of the Senate’s Gang of 8 immigration bill. The survey of 1,001 likely voters found that 61 percent

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who has seen Bruce Springsteen perform more than 130 times and hugged him one glorious time (after a natural disaster), will put his fingers in his ears and scream la-la-la if you try to tell him his favorite human hates him. At a town hall yesterday, a woman dared to suggest that Springsteen had asked Christie to stop using his music at political events because of ideological differences (as far as we can tell, he has not). Little did she know that the governor and the Boss are on a first-name basis. “No. Never did that.

The terrorist group ISIS is actively outing agents from Middle Eastern intelligence services -- as many as 30 in the last two months -- by posting their pictures and locations on social media, a counterterrorism source told Fox News. In some cases, the source, who asked not to be identified due to the sensitivity of the investigations, said the Islamic State appeared to be getting the agents´ identities from Saudi sympathizers. "I wouldn´t be surprised if they had an effective counterintelligence operation going on as well,"said Bill Roggio, who has investigated ISIS for the Long War Journal. He added that
