Saudi Foreign Minister signals
coexistence with Israel,
pressure on Palestinians
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 8/26/2014 9:38:45 AM     Post Reply
The rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS’s depredations in Syria and Iraq, and Hamas’s misrule in Gaza have finally caused the Saudis to publicly signal a rethinking of the reflexive commitment to destroying Israel. A tacit alignment of Saudi Arabia with Israel has long been discussed, but a very senior and influential member of the Saudi ruling family has very publicly declared that maybe the Jewish state can be tolerated, the Palestinians should ramp down their attempts to destroy it.

Burger King buying Tim Hortons
for about $11B
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 8/26/2014 9:07:55 AM     Post Reply
MIAMI — Burger King says it struck a deal to buy Tim Hortons Inc. for about $11 billion, a move that would give the fast-food company a stronger foothold in the coffee and breakfast market. The corporate headquarters of the new company will be in Canada, which stands to help lower Burger King´s taxes. Such tax inversions have been criticized by President Barack Obama and Congress because they mean a loss of tax revenue for the U.S. government. Burger King and Tim Hortons said the chains will continue to be run independently and that Burger King will still operate out

U.S. relies on Persian Gulf
bases for airstrikes in Iraq
Washington Post, by Craig Whitlock    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/26/2014 9:07:01 AM     Post Reply
The U.S. military is relying on bases in the Persian Gulf and elsewhere in the Middle East to carry out airstrikes in Iraq, but is masking the locations and other details about the units and aircraft involved to avoid embarrassing partners in the region. The Persian Gulf monarchies have long hosted U.S. forces to bolster their own security. But most have shied away from acknowledging the American presence and are even more reluctant now with U.S. warplanes bombing Iraq. The arrangement is especially delicate given long-standing accusations from Washington that wealthy donors in the Gulf underwrite terrorist groups, including Islamic militants being

WH: Checked-out Obama
is a media myth
The Hill, by Amie Parnes    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/26/2014 8:52:53 AM     Post Reply
The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

Labour MP: British Muslims Are Doing

ISIS No Different to Joining Israeli Army

Labour Member of Parliament Yasmin Qureshi has caused outrage after comparing the idea of young British Muslims joining ISIS to the idea of young Jewish Britons joining the Israel Defence Forces. Qureshi, who has previously had to apologise for offence caused by comparing the situation in Gaza to the Holocaust, also claimed that most British Muslims going to Iraq and Syria were going for "humanitarian reasons" in a bizarre Sky News interview yesterday. She said: "From my understand [sic], most have gone to actually help people so its been humanitarian work. We understand now from some the [sic] intelligence services giving

Ben Carson Batters Jesse

I thought you might want to see this debate about Ferguson between the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Dr. Ben Carson, who may decide to run for president. They appeared together yesterday on Fox News Sunday. You can see from this conversation why Carson would be such a compelling candidate. And oh, how nice it would be if African Americans would listen to him instead of people like Jackson and Al Sharptongue. Carson’s message, at its core, and less politely put by me, is that while yes, there is still some racism and racial profiling out there, the overwhelmingly effective thing young black

KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine said Tuesday its forces detained a group of Russian paratroopers who crossed the border into eastern Ukraine, and the U.S. ambassador to Kiev warned of a possible “Russian-directed counteroffensive” by pro-Moscow separatists, raising tensions between the two countries ahead of a planned meeting between their presidents at a regional summit.In a briefing Tuesday, Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said the Ukrainian army detained 10 Russian paratroopers in the Donetsk region, scene of some of the heaviest fighting with separatist rebels in the east. The spokesman said the Russians were detained with their documents and weapons and

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton stated:Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe.

The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this back-up system.We obviously disagree that disclosing the emails as required would be

Understanding the ISIS threat

The current threats posed by ISIS, or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, to world stability in general and to the U.S. specifically are very real and extremely dangerous. However, the origins of the group and hence the threats are not to be believed “as advertised.” We are being subjected to more lies from the White House to Foggy Bottom, along with many elected leaders who know the real story but insist upon pushing a false narrative. Collectively, they are bringing us to the brink of World War III through Syria, which I have long contended, while simultaneously opening our

All eyes on governor´s race in

When voters go to the polls in primary elections across Florida on Tuesday most attention will be focused on the race in November for the state´s governor´s mansion, shaping up to be one of the most contested - and expensive - in recent memory. The outcome of Tuesday´s Republican and Democrat primaries is a foregone conclusion with incumbent Rick Scott and his main Democratic challenger, former Governor Charlie Crist, forecast to win by wide margins. The race between Scott and Crist in November is expected to be one of the nation´s most closely watched races because it offers Democrats a rare chance

Dueling poll results from Georgia

A new poll of the Georgia Senate race by WSB-TV/Landmark shows Democrat Michelle Nunn leading Republican David Perdue by 7 points, 47-40. If the Dems flip this seat, their chances of maintaining control of the Senate will receive a huge boost. So should Republicans be alarmed by this poll? Probably not. Two polls from just a week ago give Perdue the lead by 9 points (Survey USA) and 7 points (Insider Advantage). In fact, Perdue does so well in four of the five most recent polls that the Real Clear Politics average for the race stands at Perdue +4.2 even with the

Joe Biden´s secret fundraisers

Vice President Joe Biden has been crisscrossing the country attending closed-door fundraisers and donor events for Democratic House candidates — but you won’t find many on his schedule. In Seattle, Biden worked a photo line at Boeing Field before taking off on Air Force Two. In New York, Biden hit up donors at a hotel in a lower Manhattan after addressing the Goldman Sachs energy conference. After a speech in a Philadelphia hotel ballroom, Biden slipped off to a separate room to meet with campaign donors. None of these side events were on the official public schedule — and they came

For many students, the unwelcome return to school is often sweetened with a shopping trip for school supplies and new clothes. Not anymore. As college, high school and grade school students begin returning to classes, the Environmental Protection Agency is urging students to use recycled material, even garbage, for their supplies and to shop at thrift stores for “retro fashions.” And don’t even think about taking more than one napkin or salt packet in the lunch line. “Buy smart! Purchase and use a wide assortment of supplies made from recycled products, such as pencils made from old blue jeans; binders made from old

Get ready for war: The Islamic State presents the greatest terrorist threat to Americans since 9/11, and fighting it will take more than airstrikes in Iraq, according to a top member of Congress and a retired four-star general. The Islamic State, also referred to as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, has vaulted in notoriety after the beheading of American journalist James Foley last week. On ABC’s This Week, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, called Foley’s murder a turning point. “I do think they present the greatest threat we’ve seen since 9/11,” McCaul said. “This has been

A crowd of family, friends, music stars, civil rights leaders and preachers gathered at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church on Monday for the memorial of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old robbery suspect who was fatally shot by local police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo. Brown’s uncle, Pastor Charles Ewing, gave a passionate eulogy and made parallels of his nephew’s life and that of the life of Jesus Christ. “Michael Brown was 18 years old. He was shot around noon. Our Lord and Savior hung on the cross — now compare our time frame 12 o’clock to the Jewish time frame which

Peter Schorsch did something for our nation that took courage and conviction. He knew he’d be assaulted for it, and he did it anyway and then stood by his actions. Even bragged about it. He held to his convictions and said he’d do it again, no matter how unpopular it made him. Peter Schorsch did what we all thought about doing but didn’t have the guts. Peter Schorsch ended the pay-it-forward guilt chain at a Starbucks drive-thru. The pay-it-forward cult has popped up a few times over the past few months and the concept (like most evil, totalitarian ideologies) is simple and

Someone paid the ransom that released Peter Theo Curtis from the clutches of Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate — if not in cash, then, likely, in benefits for the al-Nusra Front’s battle to topple Bashar Assad. The prime suspect — the only suspect — is the government of Qatar, a country whose emir has carved out an odious dual role as both a Western helpmate and friend to Islamist radicals. Overflowing with oil money, Qatar plays host to both the U.S. military Central Command’s forward headquarters and to Khaled Meshal, the top man of the Hamas terror group. It has funneled more than

What if James Foley, the journalist kidnapped and murdered by ISIS — had been black? Would he have still been killed? If Juan Williams, a black man, were on a Fox News Sunday panel with the white Bob Woodward, Laura Ingraham and Karl Rove, all discussing the events in Ferguson, would the panel still be a “white panel”? Was 9/11, which killed hundreds of blacks and Latinos, a racist attack? We’ll never know the answer to the first question — although we know for a fact that the Rev. Jesse Jackson got headlines and television coverage aplenty years back by securing (along with

What is the difference between CNN and the Titanic? The only casualties from CNN’s sinking will be careers, not lives. For CNN, the bad news has hit. With no new race riots or crashing Malaysian airliners to boost ratings, CNN is back in the ratings basement again. While the normal rules of journalism may not always apply at CNN, the rules of business do. A business must bring in more money than it loses or it must make cuts. Since payroll is usually a business’ single largest expense, that is often what is first cut. At CNN and Headline News,

  



The ABC’s of not fighting terrorism

Terrorism thrives because many leaders make excuses for not fighting it, rather than making policies for defeating it. Here are some of the most malignant excuses: Excuse No. 1: The terror problem is exaggerated. “Osama bin Laden is dead, and al Qaeda is on the run,” President Obama said a few months before calling the terror group that now controls much of Iraq and Syria a “JV” outfit — junior varsity. We saw the same kind of analysis before 9/11. “Americans are bedeviled by fantasies about terrorism,” ex-CIA official Larry Johnson wrote in The New York Times a few weeks before the planes

We’ve covered the abusive anti-conservative Wisconsin “John Doe” proceedings many times before. The short story is that two separate proceedings were commenced under the auspices of Democratic District Attorneys in order to try to take down Scott Walker. John Doe No. 1 concerned Walker’s time as County Executive and ended without finding any wrongdoing by Walker himself. John Doe No. 2 concerned Walker’s time as Governor and recall election. Both a state court judge and a federal judge found that even if everything the investigators claimed was true, it was not illegal. This John Doe No. 2 resulted in a federal lawsuit by

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

All of a sudden, people have noticed that we are in trouble, and many are saying it isn’t the president’s fault. All the bad news, from Iraq to Ukraine, from Libya and Syria to the Mexican border, just seems to have happened: Obama was standing there, golfing or shaking hands with donors, and, like a burst of bad weather, the winds blew, the skies opened, and things went to hell. Mysterious forces conspired against him, terrible setbacks occurred for no reason, and we were left with effects without a cause. His supporters commiserate with him and note his bad fortune

The Islamic State’ video-dissemination of one of its goons beheading an American is an existential challenge from which we cannot afford to shrink. Until the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS) did that, it made sense for the U.S. government to help contain it because the Islamic world, which the IS threatens most directly, must destroy it sooner or later. But internetting that beheading was a gory declaration of America’s impotence—a dare-by-deed that is sure to move countless young persons around the globe to get in on killing us, anywhere they can. The longer the Islamic State survives, the more will take up
