In his remarks on the murder of James Foley, the American journalist decapitated by the terrorists of ISIS, President Obama condemned Foley’s killers, appropriately, as a “cancer” on the Middle East and the world. But he also found room for the most Obama-ish of condemnations: “One thing we can all agree on,” he insisted, is that the would-be caliphate’s murderous vision has “no place in the 21st century.” The idea that America’s foes and rivals are not merely morally but chronologically deficient, confused time travelers who need to turn their DeLorean around, has long been a staple of this administration’s

Libya´s newly-elected parliament has condemned as terrorists the militia alliance which says it has captured Tripoli´s international airport. It said the alliance was now a legitimate target for the armed forces. The alliance includes Islamists and fighters from the city of Misrata. A spokesman for the militia said that the new parliament was illegitimate and called for the country´s former governing body, the Islamist-dominated General National Council, to reconvene. The BBC´s Rana Jawad in Tripoli says there are unconfirmed reports of battles continuing between rival armed groups on the outskirts of the city, and explosions can be heard. The country has been by gripped by

Even though it´s currently illegal, many Bay Area restaurants already allow dogs to sit with their owners in outdoor patio areas, but now Gov. Jerry Brown has officially signed the practice into law effective New Year´s Day. This new law would only allow dogs to sit at an outdoor patio area when the dog owner is dining, except for service dogs. Dogs would still not be allowed inside the restaurant and certainly not in the kitchen.

Right on cue, after the Obama administration went out of their way to say that Hamas is not like ISIS, a Hamas spokesperson publically distanced Hamas from ISIS, noting they are very different organizations. Yahoo News reports: DOHA, Qatar—In an interview with Yahoo News, the political leader of Hamas today vigorously rejected any comparison to ISIL terrorists and pledged that the Palestinian militant group will start giving warnings to Israelis about impending rocket attacks in order to avoid the killing of innocent civilians. As much of the world expressed revulsion over the beheading of American journalist James Foley by an

On the Friday broadcast of “The McLaughlin Group,” columnist Pat Buchanan predicted that President Obama would grant amnesty to illegal immigrants via executive order by Labor Day and that such an action would “set the country completely on fire.” After Washington Examiner Chief Congressional Correspondent Susan Ferrechio argued that “Democrats could gain from Hispanic voters turning out, especially if the president decides to take key executive actions in this summer that would help Hispanics who are here in the country, perhaps living here illegally. That could boost popularity for the party,” Buchanan responded “executive amnesty will set the country completely



U.S. strikes in Syria against

A U.S. offensive in Syria against the radical Islamist group that beheaded an American journalist would likely be constrained by persistent intelligence gaps and an inability to rely on fleets of armed drones that have served as the Obama administration’s signature weapon against terrorist networks elsewhere, U.S. officials said. The Pentagon has conducted daily surveillance flights along Iraq’s border with Syria in recent weeks as part of a push to bolster U.S. intelligence on the Islamic State without crossing into Syrian airspace and risking the loss of aircraft to that nation’s air defenses, officials said. The CIA has also expanded

FBI agents to guard UK

Dozens of FBI agents are to be posted at UK ­airports amid fears that Britain’s anti-terrorism efforts are failing to keep track of jihadi fanatics. Three US officers from a specialist FBI counter-terror unit are expected to land at Heathrow on Tuesday, with another 10 arriving within the week and dozens more over coming months. They will monitor suspect passengers as well as ­investigate “terror hot-spots” across Britain in the wake of the beheading of American James Foley in Iraq. Last night, however, critics claimed their arrival was an admission that cuts to police and the UK Border Force had

FORE! Score? And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL. I know reporters didn’t get a chance to ask questions, but I had to bounce. I had a 1 p.m. tee time at Vineyard Golf Club with Alonzo

The Israel Air Force struck a 13-story building in Gaza City on Saturday evening that housed an enormous Hamas command center, IDF sources said, adding that only combatants were inside at the time. Gazan health officials said 17 people were wounded in the attack. Reuters cited local residents as saying that the building housed 44 families. Shortly after 8 p.m., rocket-warning sirens went off in cities across the Tel Aviv area, from Rishon Lezion to Bnei Brak and Givatayim. Blasts from Iron Dome interceptions could be heard in the air over Tel Aviv, though the sirens did not sound in the city. There

President Obama was back on the golf course today as he enjoyed yet another 18 holes amid deepening concerns about the spreading terrorist rampage of extremist group ISIS. The President played a round with former NBA basketball star Alonzo Mourning and Cyrus Walker, cousin of White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, at Farm Neck Golf Club, in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts on Saturday. His hours on the golf course during a two-week break on the resort island of Martha´s Vineyard have his detractors teeing up as they highlight the slew of foreign policy crises currently facing the U.S.

British jihadis involved in the brutal beheading of American reporter James Foley callously boasted of making personal fortunes from ransoms paid for other released hostages. The gang openly talked of making so much money they could ‘retire to Kuwait or Qatar’, according to testimonies by former hostages obtained by The Mail on Sunday. The four Islamic State militants--nicknamed The Beatles by their Western captives--were reported to be ‘interested in money’ from the start of the kidnap ordeal, even bragging to prisoners about how much they were making. A security source revealed last night that £24 million was paid by at least

British Special Forces hunting the killer of James Foley are using an array of sophisticated equipment to track him down--and possibly free other hostages being held. The Mail on Sunday has been given a detailed account of how elite troops from the SAS and the Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR) are conducting high-tech operations inside Syria and Iraq, which could lead to the capture of the extremists within days. It is understood the true identity of Jihadi John has not yet been established and that the precise location where Mr Foley was executed--as seen in a video which shocked the world--remains

Hamas´s Qatar-based leader Khaled Meshaal has objected to Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu´s comparison between the Palestinian Islamist terror group and the Islamic State, or ISIS. Speaking Thursday to visiting US Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), Netanyahu said Israel was fighting the same war against Islamist terrorism as the US and other countries current working to combat the spread of the brutal Islamic State. "We face the same Islamist network and we have to fight it together," Netanyahu stated. "Hamas is ISIS, ISIS is Hamas."

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Israel bombed an apartment tower in downtown Gaza City on Saturday, collapsing the 12-story building in an unprecedented strike, while Hamas kept up heavy rocket fire that sent more Israelis fleeing border areas close to Gaza. The violence signaled that a speedy resumption of truce talks is unlikely, despite another appeal by mediator Egypt. Gaps between Israel and Hamas on a border deal for blockaded Gaza remain vast, and repeated rounds of talks have ended in failure. In the Gaza City strike, a huge fireball followed by a black column of smoke rose into the

Five rockets from Syria landed across the border with Israel in the Golan Heights overnight between Saturday and Sunday. [Snip] Multiple alert sirens sounded in the Golan Regional Council warning of the attack. The projectile strike from Syria came hours after a separate incident on Saturday night in which a rocket fired from Lebanon hit a building in an open area in the Upper Galilee. Two children were lightly injured by shrapnel and four people were suffering from shock as a result of the attack. The news agency NNA, citing its correspondent in Tire, said the rockets were fired towards Israel

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., doesn´t know what else she can do to convince you people she´s not running for president. A darling of liberal activists, Warren has said repeatedly she won´t seek the White House in 2016, but her supporters have been undeterred, setting up a Ready for Warren super PAC to raise money and encouraging the senator to mount a bid. On Friday, though, Warren took the unusual step of having an attorney send a letter to the Federal Election Commission disavowing any involvement in the grassroots effort to draft her into the 2016 race.

Thousands of people shouted anti-Israel and anti-Semitic slogans, wore anti-Semitic T-shirts, and defended Hitler on Saturday--all in alleged defense of a "free Gaza" and "Palestinian rights" at a protest outside London´s Downing Street. Breitbart News reporters at the scene reported a current of violence running through the crowd, with at least one peaceful pro-Israel counter-protester saying he felt "physically intimidated." Police later banned the man from participating, possibly for his safety; reporters were also asked to leave. Hate crimes against Jews have risen 383% worldwide since 2013, including a 436% hate crime hike in Europe. Thousands of people have participated in anti-Israel

Americans receiving food stamps were caught selling and bartering their benefits online for art, housing and cash, according to a new federal report that investigates fraud in the nation’s largest nutrition support program. Complicating the situation is the fact states around the country are having trouble tracking and prosecuting the crimes because their enforcement budgets have been slashed despite the rapidly-rising number of food stamp recipients, according to the Government Accountability Office report. Under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, 47 million people have been awarded $76 billion in benefits. State agencies are responsible for addressing SNAP recipient fraud

The United States was said to be considering air strikes aimed at eliminating individual leaders of Islamic State as Turkey came under mounting pressure to stem the flow of jihadists across its border into Syria. As Washington on Saturday debated extending air strikes into Syria, senior British politicians urged Ankara to act to block recruits from the UK and other countries from entering Syria via Turkey, en route to joining Islamic State (formerly Isis). This weekend large numbers of Isis jihadists were trying to secure greater control of the border area, pushing northwards in armoured trucks looted from abandoned Iraqi military bases.

Speaking at a rally for New Hampshire Republican activists, the Texas governor touched on the execution of journalist and Granite State native James Foley at the hands of the Islamic extremist group ISIS. "Our hearts are heavy today, because of a young man from Rochester. A hero. A man who stood in the gap to reveal the evil that ISIS is all about," said the potential presidential candidate.
