The same St. Louis police officer who was seen on CNN earlier this week pushing Don Lemon back during a live broadcast from Ferguson, Missouri, has been relieved of his duty after video emerged of an hour-long speech he delivered railing against African-Americans, the LGBT community and President Barack Obama. CNN reported the news about Officer Dan Page, who made the controversial remarks at an Oath Keepers meeting just months ago. “It’s wide-ranging inflammatory remarks about a lot of people, about women, about gay people,” Lemon reported. “He talks about the president of the United States. He speaks out against

The U.S. Border Patrol recently erected more desert rescue beacons near Tucson, beacons aimed at saving the lives of illegal aliens in distress. Reports revealed on Friday that the new beacons are part of an effort dubbed the Blue Light of Life campaign. The effort is designed to alert illegal immigrants to the dangers of crossing the desert-like stretches of our southern border and to give them aid if they face life threatening situations while doing so. "With assistance from the Arizona National Guard’s 2220th Transportation Company, 10 additional rescue beacons were strategically placed to save the lives of migrants

Islamic State´s bootleg petro-state
may prove unsustainable
Al Jazeera [Doha, Qatar], by Michael Pizzi    Original Article

With up to $2 million in daily revenue from black market oil, the Islamic State insurgency not only holds sway over swathes of Syria and Iraq but has also begun to lay the foundations to become a small petro-state. Such is the extent of the threat posed by the network that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Thursday called the group “as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we’ve seen” and “beyond just a terrorist group.” But even as Western military leaders ratchet up rhetoric about the Islamic State, considered to be the world's wealthiest extremist network, analysts say the fledgling petro-state is already running into problems.

In an analysis of the data by CIS’ director of policy studies Jessica Vaughan, obtained in advance of its publication by Breitbart News, Vaughan broke down the cities and states in which the zip codes land. Thursday, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley released a recent letter from Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealing the zip codes of most of the 169 immigrants convicted of homicide-related crimes who were awaiting deportation proceedings but released

On Friday, the Obama administration issued its eighth “accommodation” to ObamaCare’s HHS contraception mandate, which requires most employers to provide free contraceptives, sterilization procedures, and abortion-inducing drugs to employees through their health insurance plans. Lori Windham, Senior Counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which has represented many of the plaintiffs in their lawsuits against the Administration over the mandate, described the new rule in a press release as “the latest step in the administration’s long retreat on the HHS Mandate.” In the wake of the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision, this latest revision of the mandate once again

A new poll from Gallup has found that Republican voters think the immigration woe facing America is the most important issue in the country. Of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters, the Gallup poll found that 22 percent believe immigration is the “most important problem” in America. Republicans rank the issue as more important than dysfunctional government, the economy, unemployment and healthcare—for which 20 percent, 17 percent, 12 percent, and 9 percent, respectively, said it was the most important.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was forced to apologize Friday for racially-charged jokes he made in a speech to Asian business leaders in Las Vegas. The Nevada Democrat ribbed the crowd at a event by the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce about Asians not being “smarter than anybody else” and so many of them having the name “Wong.” “The Asian population is so productive. I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you have convinced a lot of us you are,” said Mr. Reid, as the crowd guffawed. He later joked: “One problem I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”

Tehran, Iran - Iran inaugurated a new plant Saturday to convert a type of uranium into a material that cannot be used to make nuclear weapons as part of its interim atomic deal with world powers, its official news agency reported. The report by IRNA quoted Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s nuclear agency, saying that the plant will convert uranium hexafluoride, which can be used to make nuclear weapons and fuel. It will become uranium dioxide, which can only be used in nuclear reactors, he said. “The process has begun and we have implemented our commitment,” Salehi was quoted as saying.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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,

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.
