Hedonism and beheading:
Two worlds collide
Daily Inter Lake [Kalispell MT], by Frank Miele    Original Article

The murder of American photojournalist James Foley by hooded thugs in the Islamic State ought to unite our country in a passion for justice, but it won’t. Our country no longer strives for justice. Otherwise the death of James Foley would never have happened. The terrorists who now control nearly half of Iraq and a good portion of Syria would have been exterminated long ago like the pestilent plague they are. It’s not just our failure to wage war against evil overseas either that reveals our decline as a great nation. You only have to look to the disaster in Ferguson, Missouri,

Barrages of rockets at southern communities continue at an increased pace Sunday morning. In the latest salvo, five people were injured by a mortar shell fired at the Erez Crossing near the Gaza border. Two people have been injured critically and one is suffering moderate to serious injuries. [Snip] Hamas´s Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades claims it fired 13 mortar shells at the crossing. Dozens of rockets have exploded in open areas Sunday; several were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system over Sderot and Ashkelon. Earlier this morning, one person was moderately injured by shrapnel in Ashkelon, as two rockets

Israeli civil rights org asks US to stop Hamas terrorist regime executions of suspected collaborators. Some 25 have been put to death. "The residents of Gaza are living under a terrorist regime, and the world is not lifting a finger." So writes the Legal Forum for Israel to the U.S. Ambassador in Israel, regarding the Hamas executions of suspected collaborators in Gaza. On Friday, Hamas executed four men suspected of collaborating with Israel, in public "ceremonies" before hundreds of people. Some 25 have been put to death thus far. The Legal Forum´s letter to Ambassador Dan Shapiro requests that the

The British security services MI5 and MI6 have reportedly identified a British hip-hop artist as the key suspect in the hunt for the killer who beheaded American journalist James Foley. The Sunday Times newspaper said Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, from Maida Vale in West London, had become a crucial part of the investigation. The paper attributed the information to “senior government sources.” Bary, 23, is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trial on terror charges in New York tied to the deadly 1998 bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Former hostages held by ISIS have said he is one of several jihadists

Circumstances surrounding the events of the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., on Aug. 9 continue to unfold and dominate national headlines. A family, community and country have been captivated by the events that evolve daily. The events in Ferguson are tragic on many levels. A young man lost his life, a police officer’s future hangs in the balance, and the aftermath of the shooting includes nightly protests and the looting of property, on display for the world to see. Another misfortune was the swiftness of how this unfortunate situation was hijacked and exploited by outsiders seeking to

AMERICAN CANYON -- A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck 3 miles northwest of American Canyon (Napa County) at 3:20 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The quake was felt widely throughout Northern California and had a depth of 6.7 miles, officials said. In Benicia, several miles from the epicenter, the quake was strong enough to knocked pictures off mantles. Officer Albie Esparza, a spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department, said a "roll call" of all police stations in San Francisco was conducted shortly after the quake hit, and that "all facilities reported no damage at this time, and operations

Online fundraisers for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson surpassed the amount of money raised for Michael Brown´s family as the officer´s supporters gathered at an afternoon rally Saturday. Supporters of Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., came to Barney´s Sports Pub in south St. Louis. "Many of us have received death threats toward ourselves and our families," said one speaker, wearing sunglasses, paint beneath her eyes and a baseball cap. "We will not hide. We will no longer live in fear … If you support Darren Wilson, make your voices heard." She refused



Why Interest Rates
Need to Stay Low
New York Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 8/24/2014 6:52:50 AM     Post Reply
A sharp debate within the Federal Reserve over when to raise interest rates was publicly aired last week at the annual central bankers’ conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo. On one side is a small yet vocal minority of Fed officials who want to head off inflation by raising rates sooner rather than later. On the other is a majority that thinks a near-term rate hike would stifle growth and, with it, any chance of restoring health to the labor market. That group includes Janet Yellen, the Fed’s chairwoman, and most members of the Fed’s policy committee. Continue reading the main story Related

Why Is It So Hard for
Employers to Fill These Jobs?
Daily Signal, by Stephen Moore    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 8/24/2014 6:48:27 AM     Post Reply
America has a deficit of workers. Willing workers. Capable workers. Skilled, or at least semi-skilled workers, who can do a job and do it well. There are at least one million jobs that go begging day after day if only employers could find workers to fill them. This probably seems hard-to-believe. After all, how can America have a worker shortage when we have about 18 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed? When the real unemployment rate is 12 percent? (Snip) But there are also millions of unemployed Americans who don’t have the skill sets to match what employers are in need

Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sign that read, “Yield Sneakers Bacon” citing opposition from a Muslim community member and safety concerns. The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report.

“They have come! The Americans are here!” Seventy years ago, August 25 (D-Day+80), Paris was liberated by the American 4th Infantry Division. Ike had planned to bypass Paris; liberation was an afterthought. As American and French liberators entered the city from opposite sides, Parisians poured into the streets. Vichy socialist snipers fired into the crowd but were quickly silenced by infantry return fire. The elated Parisians erupted into a citywide party to greet the Americans with flowers, kisses, and wine. Paris was again the City of Light. Chicago journalist Ernest Hemingway, who had accompanied Americans in the seventh wave to

American and British intelligence officials reportedly are "getting closer" to identifying the Islamic State fighter who beheaded American journalist James Foley in a video released last week by the militant group formerly known as ISIS. The Sunday Times reported that MI5 and MI6, Britain´s two major intelligence agencies, had identified the man who did the brutal deed, though he had not been publicly identified. A counterterrorism source told Fox News that the investigation was moving forward and slowly eliminating individuals of interest. The source also told Fox News that the FBI had opened a crisis file shortly after Foley was

My blood is still boiling over the recent murder by beheading of an American citizen at the hands of the terrorist group ISIL, or ISIS, or whatever these murderous fools call themselves. Their real name is EVIL. I listened to the president last week as he appropriately conveyed Americans’ revulsion at this savage act and our grief at the Foley family’s loss. As usual, the president’s words were very eloquent. To his credit, the president was unequivocal regarding the evil of this terrorist group, and he took the time to list some of their crimes against humanity. But

Following the horrific ISIS beheading of an American journalist, James Foley, we are led to believe that the president is beginning to rethink the issue of terrorism, or so we gather from the comments of Ben Rhodes, his deputy national security advisor. When you see somebody killed in such a horrific way, that represents a terrorist attack,” [Ben Rhodes, the White House’s deputy national security advisor] said. “That represents a terrorist attack against our country and against an American citizen.” As is common with the garbled uncoordinated messaging of the administration, Rhodes´ characterization just makes it worse that Obama very publicly went

Those who knew James Foley speak well of him. He seems to have met a dreadful death with courage. His final statement as put out by his murderers was a puzzle, however. (Snip) I assumed that his Islamic State murderers had dictated what he was to say, with the threat of torture if he did not sound sincere. Not a bit of it. Daniel Greenfield is a reliable journalist, and he writes an article to spell out that Foley held the United States in contempt and had gone to Syria to associate with the Sunni rebels and help them overthrow



Gun-rights group persuading

WASHINGTON – A Washington state-based gun rights group is steadily persuading cities and towns across the country to repeal local firearms regulations and give that power back to the states. The organization, the Second Amendment Foundation, is working to invalidate city ordinances by arguing that they´re in conflict with looser state regulations. So far, it seems to be working. The group says it´s been able to overturn more than 100 gun-related ordinances this way, most recently in Utah. “We’re going state by state, going through every single ordinance of every city and county in every state and finding where the

Eric Holder candidly acknowledged his objective in the Michael Brown case when he stated, “my commitment. . .is, long after this tragic story no longer receives this level of attention, the Justice Department will continue to stand with Ferguson.” One might have hoped that the Justice Department’s commitment in this instance would be to justice, rather than to standing with any particular group or geographic location. The two goals are at odds, although it’s possible that they could converge in the same result. Justice is supposed to be blind. Thus, it cannot stand with any group or entity. Before its processes

The Growing Blue-State Diaspora

Californians have moved to Colorado and Nevada. Massachusetts natives have moved to New Hampshire. New Yorkers have moved to North Carolina and Virginia — and, of course, have continued moving to Florida. Over the last few decades, residents of many traditionally liberal states have moved to states that were once more conservative. And this pattern has played an important role in helping the Democratic Party win the last two presidential elections and four of the last six. The growth of the Latino population and the social liberalism of the millennial generation may receive more attention, but the growing diaspora of blue-state

President Obama Doesn’t Care What We Think About His Golfing. After that brutal New York Daily News cover Thursday afternoon, hitting him for going golfing right after his remarks about the beheading of American, President Obama responded Thursday afternoon… by going golfing. President Obama doesn’t care if the optics are bad. He doesn’t care if there’s an awful contrast because UK Prime Minister David Cameron canceled his vacation plans. He doesn’t care if he’s getting grief from once-stalwart fans like Chris Matthews and Maureen Dowd. He doesn’t care if Congressional Democrats are openly griping about his disinterest and disconnect in the New

A New Hampshire couple won a $2.4-million jackpot at a vaunted Las Vegas slot machine, ending a 20-year run in which many contestants tried and failed to coax a giant payout from the recalcitrant machine. Walter and Linda Misco of Chester, N.H., played for five minutes Friday night before inserting a $100 bill into the "Lion´s Share" slot machine at the MGM Grand and hitting the jackpot. The game, which is the last progressive slot machine left on the casino´s floor, had tempted players since the 1990s with its ever-increasing jackpot. The casino said it was the most popular slot

An eruption of aggravation about what American schoolchildren can no longer eat in school cafeterias is never far away in the Obama era. Now, thanks to federal intervention that first lady Michelle has made her signature issue, students in all 11 taxpayer-funded public schools in Elyria, Ohio cannot enjoy the famous Elyria pink cookie anymore. This cookie is no ordinary cookie, according to The Chronicle-Telegram, the Cleveland suburb’s local newspaper. It’s a velvety, cake-like, scrumptious delicacy glazed with a huge dollop of sugary pink icing. Cleveland magazine dubbed the Elyria pink cookie the “Best Cafeteria Cookie” in 2009.

History has shown that air power can be a deciding factor in battles, if only the Arab states would use it against ISIS. With sickening snuff videos and viral postings of mass executions, ISIS has developed the projection of terror way beyond any predecessor. It has also managed to make itself seem more militarily formidable than it actually is. Even though its capacity as a training camp and assignment center for jihadists who can be sent to blow people up in Europe, the U.S. and Asia poses an extreme new danger, this should not be confused with its threat as a

Whether the trade of five senior Taliban terrorists for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was politically or militarily wise remains a matter of intense disagreement in some quarters. One thing that is not controversial is that how the trade was done violated federal law, according to the Government Accountability Office, the independent government watchdog agency for Congress. On Thursday, the GAO wrote in response to queries from Republican senators that in ordering the trade, President Obama violated two laws. First, he violated the funding law for the Department of Defense this year, which forbade funds from being used to release

So the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said the other day that when it comes to terrorist attacks by ISIS, certain countries “because of open borders and immigration issues, it’s an immediate threat.” Open borders? Immigration issues? What nation could Army Gen. Martin Dempsey possibly be speaking of? As it turns out, Dempsey is a good bureaucrat, an Obama Kool-Aid drinker from way back, and he was referring to the “southern border” of NATO. Whew, that’s a relief. Besides, the U.S. doesn’t have any borders anymore, open or otherwise. Who are these nattering nabobs of negativism, these nervous nellies screaming about ISIS? Gov.

If at first you don’t secede, try, try again. This might be the motto of Alex Salmond’s Scottish National party, which since 1934 has been advocating the proposition that Scotland should be an independent country, governed not from London but from Edinburgh and able to make its own policy decisions about defense, immigration, taxation, and spending. On September 18, Scots will finally face a referendum about their future. Do they wish to continue to be part of the United Kingdom or to go it alone under their own flag—the blue and white saltire—into a new Caledonian era? The timing of
