Just Moseying Around in BHO Land

Last week when I went to peruse the shelves at Barnes & Noble and used my educator card for a purchase, I was asked to show a photo ID. The next day, when I went for a planned medical procedure, I was required to display a photo ID. And finally, when I cashed a check at the local A&P, the cashier requested to see some identification. (snip) Late at night, I ponder why thousands of illegals are coming through the southern border and disappearing into the country, and I, a citizen of this country, need to prove that I am

Some Ferguson Protests
Start To Look Like “Occupy”

Ferguson, MO - Four nights ago, Ned Alexander IV and Steve Wash sat down in an overgrown parking lot and never left. The two men were among the hundreds of protesters who retreated from police late Tuesday during demonstrations over Michael Brown’s death on Aug. 9. But rather than fade into the surrounding neighborhoods for the night, Alexander and Wash — along with a handful of others — ran to an “approved assembly area” at the far end of protest zone on W Florissant. That night, with a cadre of police watching from across the street, Alexander told BuzzFeed the group wasn’t leaving. And sure enough, the next morning

Baghdad - A suicide bomber hit an Interior Ministry building in central Baghdad on Saturday, killing at least 11 people, as an investigation was underway into a deadly attack on a Sunni mosque that has heightened sectarian tension amid a fragile political transition. The suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden car into the gate of the intelligence headquarters in Karrada district in the early afternoon, killing six civilians and five security personnel, a police officer said. He said 24 other people were wounded. A medical official confirmed causality figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to brief the Media.

Republican Party Insanity

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein Unbelievably, the drumbeat is beginning for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney to run for President a third time. The man who lost twice for President is now being encouraged by many party leaders to give it another try. Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) recently told MSNBC, “I think he’s proven right on a lot of stuff. I happen to be in the camp that thinks he’s actually going to run and I think he will be the next President of the United States.” Chaffetz is not alone; commentator Ann

St. Louis County cop suspended
when racist, sexist rant goes viral
after patrolling unrest in Ferguson, Mo.

A St. Louis County police officer who pushed CNN’s Don Lemon, a black television host, during live coverage of protests this week in Ferguson, Mo., has been suspended from duty after video of an hour-long racial rant against minority groups, women, liberals and politicians emerged online. Officer Dan Page spewed the vile rhetoric during an Oath Keepers of St. Louis/St. Charles meeting in April, just months before he was tasked with keeping order among a crowd of majority black protesters in Ferguson. Page’s first spin on live TV went horribly wrong: Page’s first spin on live TV went horribly wrong: “Move out of the way, sir.

Obama wants Export-Import Bank renewed

President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi, everybody. Nearly six years after the worst financial crisis of our lifetimes, our businesses have added nearly 10 million new jobs over the past 53 months. [Snip] We should be doing everything we can to accelerate this progress, not stall it. One place to start is by supporting something called the U.S. Export-Import Bank. Its sole mission is to create American jobs. That’s it. It helps many American entrepreneurs take that next step and take their small business global. But next month, its charter will expire — unless Members of Congress do their job.

IDF warns Gazans:
Steer clear from terror sites

The IDF called on residents of Gaza to steer clear of areas used to wage attacks against Israel. The army distributed leaflets across the coastal territory and warned the population via recorded voice messages and text messages that it "will use force against any military or civilian facility used for terrorist activities." "Any house that is used to wage attacks against Israel will be targeted," the leaflets read. "The mission is still ongoing; Beware." . "For your own safety," the army admonished Gaza residents, "prevent terrorists from using your property for terror activities and keep clear from any place where

Iran says it will send aid to Gaza after Egypt agrees to allow the shipment to enter through the Rafiah crossing. Iran plans to send aid to Gaza after Egypt said it would allow the shipment to enter the territory, an Iranian diplomatic source said on Friday, according to AFP.

"The package weighs 100 tons and consists of food and medication," IRNA quoted the source as saying. Tehran said at the end of July it had sent a first

Climate change is a serious problem because... Ferguson. So says environmental activist Deirdre Smith of left-wing pressure group 350.org. In an editorial written for Common Dreams ("Breaking News and Views for the Progressive Community"), she claims that it "isn´t hard" to link the current tensions in Ferguson, Missouri with global warming. She writes: When crisis hits, the underlying racism in our society comes to the surface in very clear ways. Climate change is bringing nothing if not clarity to the persistent and overlapping crises of our time. Warming to the immense stupidity of her theme, she goes on: Communities of

Amanda Curtis Is a Rare

Montana has never seen a Democratic U.S. Senate candidate like state Rep. Amanda Curtis. Selected by state Democrats last week to replace Democratic Sen. John Walsh on their November ticket after a plagiarism scandal derailed his re-election bid, Curtis is a far cry from the centrist candidates the party tends to field for statewide office in Big Sky Country. Curtis, a 34-year-old math teacher with a nose ring and a background in labor activism, has only one term in the state legislature to her name, and told ABC News she plans to run a progressive, “grassroots” campaign on income inequality and student-loan debt.

There’s a significant amount of media effort currently airing while trying to convince you that Ferguson Missouri is a relative Mayberryesque outlying suburb of Saint Louis. The reason for playing up the peaceful community angle is part of the optic. Painting an easier picture that Officer Darren Wilson was responding in an over aggressive manner to a moderate or innocuous threat presented toward him. Toward that end optical controller Captain Ron Johnson has even displayed 2am sock puppets made with crayons while the peaceful protestors paraded down West Florissant Avenue, the main thoroughfare.

Saudi Arabia has beheaded 19 people
in one month. Isil would be proud

Human Rights Watch reports that Saudi Arabia has beheaded 19 people since the beginning of August. Some confessions may have been gained under torture and one poor defendant was found guilty of sorcery. Yep, sorcery. That might sound archaic, but we are talking about a regime so very concerned about offending God that it has even banned certain names for being "blasphemous". [Snip] Of course, it’s difficult for the West to condemn a country for a liberal use of the death penalty when America does the same all the time. Nevertheless, Saudi Arabia’s sudden bump in executions is a reminder

Theresa May: New laws

Labour has offered support for the Home Secretary’s plan for new laws to tackle extremism amid growing calls for tougher measures to combat British jihadists. Yvette Cooper, the shadow home secretary, welcomed Theresa May’s proposals for a new powers to ban extremist groups and civil court injunctions--likened to anti-social behaviour orders--to stop radical individuals trying to brainwash others. [Snip] However, Miss Cooper called for more detail on the proposed measures to ban extremist groups and urged the government to strengthen anti-terrorism legislation by looking again at bringing back controversial control

Hamas, ISIS: Two sides

Horrific new atrocity photos flowed from the Middle East Friday. Only this time the victims were Palestinians, not Americans, and the killers were from Hamas, not ISIS. Angered by Israel’s successful hit on three of its top commanders in an airstrike, Hamas lined 18 “informers” against a wall and publicly gunned them down. This, declared Hamas, was “revolutionary justice,” vowing that more such killings will follow. Summary executions are nothing new to Hamas, of course. Yet much of the world thinks it’s engaged in legitimate resistance to “Zionist occupation.” And that’s alarming — because it’s becoming increasingly

New fear: What happens

Ferguson, MO - Conditions calmed this week in Ferguson after nights of sometimes violent unrest stemming from the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer. But a delicate and crucial question lingers: What happens if the grand jury now considering the case doesn’t return a charge against the officer? The fear among some local residents and officials trying to maintain peace in Ferguson is that failure to charge the officer could stoke new anger among a community profoundly mistrustful of the legal system. Many say they just hope the grand jury’s decision, whatever it is, has irrefutable facts to back it up.

How Do You Solve a

We wuz robbed. Admit it, you neo-cons, paleo-cons, compassionates, country clubbers and decline-to-states: right now, in a just, moral, ordered universe, Mitt Romney should be President. He was right on Iraq and Benghazi, right on healthcare, immigration, and Russia. But he was so mendaciously smeared that voters possessed the ludicrous mindset that Mitt didn’t “care about someone like me.” Feckless Republican operatives allowed data-mining splashed with voter fraud to seal the defeat. Twenty months later, numerous polls indicate significant voter remorse. This genuine sentiment has naturally provoked calls of “Run, Mitt,

ISIS: The End of Denial

The Vietnam War was won by American forces in the field, together with South Vietnamese, but it was lost in the media. (Snip) I believe that the explosion of ISIS photos is finally putting an end to decades massive Western denial of Islamist horrors. For thirty years, the West has been in denial, ever since Jimmy Carter surrendered to Ayatollah Khomeini in the mass kidnapping of our embassy personnel in 1979. Since then the OPEC cartel has simply bought up Western politicians and media owners, until the average American can no longer think straight about the clear and present threat of jihad war.

Three British men waging jihad in the Middle East alongside the Islamic State (IS) have emerged as potential identities for the masked extremist who killed James Foley in a brutal propaganda video. The men, all in their early twenties, are thought to be in the IS capital of Raqqa, Syria. They enter the frame as security sources say MI5 are getting closer to discovering who the executioner, known only as ´John´, could be. The fighter, who spoke with a British accent, butchered Mr Foley, an American journalist, in front of cameras, claiming it was retaliation for U.S. air strikes on the Islamic

A British rapper whose father is awaiting trial in Manhattan for a pair of US embassy bombings is a leading suspect in the barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley, it was revealed on Friday. Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary — who recently tweeted a photo of himself holding up a severed head — was among three Brits identified as possibly being the masked killer known as “John the Beatle.” Bary, 24, is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trial on terror charges tied to the deadly 1998 bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.Also under investigation are the brother

The Latest Step in the HHS Mandate Saga:
The Non-Accommodation Is Still Not a Solution

The Obama administration suffered two stinging defeats at the Supreme Court this summer related to the so-called “HHS mandate” — the rule that requires employers to include free contraceptives, sterilization services, and products that can induce early-pregnancy abortions in their health plan offerings to workers. In the Hobby Lobby case, the Supreme Court ruled that closely held for-profit companies had rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), and that the contested HHS rule did not meet RFRA’s “least restrictive means” test for imposing this requirement on employers with religious objections. A few days later,

Responding to the horrifying murder of photojournalist James Foley, Secretary of State John Kerry declared the Islamic State “and the wickedness it represents must be destroyed.” President Obama said, “People like this ultimately fail.” The first is a pledge; the second an observation. Obama remains a rhetorical spectator to events in Iraq and Syria that he does not want to own and that he believes the United States has a limited ability to influence. Obama called the Islamic State a “cancer.” But the actual pledge found in his remarks was consistent with earlier pledges: “The United States of America will continue

A web video surfaced Friday of civil rights activist Jesse Jackson being confronted by Ferguson, MO, protesters unhappy with Jackson’s presence in the city. The video was posted by the conservative website Western Journalism. “Are you marching today with us, or are you just going to sit in the car?” one of the men confronting Jackson says in the video. Jackson seems to remain silent in the video, which is recorded in a McDonald’s parking lot. “When you going to stop selling us out, Jesse?” one of the protesters says. “We don’t want you here in St. Louis!

Washington — The Obama administration has quietly abandoned its aggressive months-long search for emergency shelters across the nation as the number of children illegally crossing the southern border alone continues to drop. At the same time, three facilities at military bases in Texas, California and Oklahoma set up as shelters are no longer housing children from Central America. An official with the Department of Health and Human Services, which led the search for shelters, said there’s been a decrease in the number of children apprehended at the border and an increase in the number of children sent to live with

President Obama is still vacationing in Martha´s Vineyard as this is written. But he may have experienced a jolting encounter with a grim reality. The problem with Obama is too often there is no "there, there" with his words on foreign policy issues. Most infamously, he drew a red line Syria, warning of terrible consequences if the Assad regime used chemical weapons. Then, when the Assad regime did use chemical weapons, Obama unexpectedly deferred to Vladimir Putin to broker a deal that rendered the red line irrelevant. There is no doubt that Obama, to this point in his presidency, has been epically

The ongoing Gaza crisis seems to have broken a lot of crockery in the U.S.-Israel relationship. Malicious attacks on Secretary of State John Kerry, tough Obama administration statements on the "appalling" nature of Israeli strikes causing civilian casualties, and greater scrutiny of U.S. missile shipments to Israel have led some observers to conclude that this is among the worst patches in the relationship. Those worried, or alternatively hoping, that the special relationship is about to become … well, a lot less special better lie down until the feeling passes. However dysfunctional relations are between President Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin
