Obama Is Just ´Tickling´
ISIS, Syrian Rebels Say
Daily Beast, by Josh Rogin    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/26/2014 11:29:45 AM     Post Reply
The Free Syrian Army is not impressed with President Obama’s new threat to attack ISIS inside Syria. That’s like ‘tickling’ the terror group, the FSA says—and is too little, too late. U.S. airstrikes against ISIS, even if they extend into Syria as several Obama administration officials are signaling, don’t have a chance of destroying the terror group, moderate political and rebel leaders inside the country are cautioning. They have told The Daily Beast that air strikes will only make things worse unless there’s a coordinated plan to defeat ISIS. For the Free Syrian Army, the Obama administration’s recent bluster about possibly using

For Obama, program to lift up
young black men takes center stage
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink    Original Article

President Obama has put the My Brother’s Keeper initiative at the center of his response to racial unrest in Ferguson, Mo. But the president is also signaling that the program meant to provide opportunities to young men of color will be an important part of his post-presidency plans. Obama has been “deeply engaged” in the initiative, aides say, helping solicit over $200 million in private donations to be dispersed over the next five years into child development, school readiness, parent engagement, literacy, and school discipline reform programs. He’s asked friends — including NBA stars like Chris Paul and Magic Johnson

Obama to unveil executive
actions on veterans´ health care
Washington Examiner, by Brian Hughes    Original Article

President Obama on Tuesday will roll out new executive actions to strengthen veterans’ health care, using a speech at the American Legion National Convention to trumpet a reduction in the disability claims backlog at government hospitals. The president will announce executive initiatives that automatically enroll those receiving mental health services through the Defense Department into similar Department of Veterans Affairs programs, expand mental health peer support for veterans being treated in primary care settings and invest nearly $115 million in suicide prevention and treatment of diseases like post-traumatic stress disorder. (Snip) The president will announce that the disability claims backlog has

Brown´s Funeral, the Exploiters,
and America´s Police
American Thinker, by Lloyd Marcus    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/26/2014 11:14:07 AM     Post Reply
Though skillfully orchestrated to transform convenience store robber Michael Brown into a heroic martyr for civil rights, his funeral was hijacked into becoming a platform for the evil and obscene slander of police and America, perpetrated by the usual deplorable suspects: Al Sharpton, Democrats, and the MSM. Candidly, as a black man, it is easy to feel like the odd man out – consistently finding myself taking the opposite side from a majority of black Americans. In 2008, over 96% of blacks voted for Obama. I did not. While I am familiar with black Republican author, orator, and advisor to

Soros Clones: 5 Liberal Mega-Donors
Nearly as Dangerous as George Soros
Newsbusters, by Mike Ciandella    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/26/2014 11:07:32 AM     Post Reply
As the 2014 midterm elections approached, the media were quick to criticize conservative donors like the Koch brothers for backing issues important to them. But journalists largely ignored the incredible financial power being used to promote the liberal agenda. Five top donors – Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Pierre Omidyar, Tom Steyer and George Soros’s own son, Jonathan – are major funders of the left. Together, they have contributed at least $2.7 billion since 2000 to groups pushing abortion, gun control, climate change alarmism and liberal candidates. That’s not how major media depicted them. Broadcast networks applauded when billionaire hedge fund

Boehner Shoots Bizarre Video
With Wind-Up Monkey Toy
Mediaite, by Eddie Scarry    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/26/2014 11:06:25 AM     Post Reply
The official government office of House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) posted to its website on Tuesday a slickly produced 40-second video centered on a wind-up toy monkey that sits in Boehner’s house. The website says that the toy monkey is the second-most photographed subject (inadvertently) of the current session of Congress, aside from Boehner. “It all started in the fall of 2011, when Speaker Boehner joked in an interview that some days he felt like a windup toy because his jam-packed scheduled kept him so busy,” the site says. “My staff gave it to me,” Boehner says in the video. “Every 15-30

Ronan Farrow Guest: Ferguson Riots
Were Justified Well-Placed Anger
Truth Revolt, by Jeff Dunetz    Original Article

According to one of Ronan Farrow´s Monday guests, the riots in Ferguson, Missouri were justified as “well-placed anger, disappointment, disenchantment with an aggressive militarized police force and with the apathetic government." Farrow agreed. Farrow´s two guests were Torrine Russell from Hands Up United and Philip Agnew from Dream Defenders. The two are organizing a national day for students to walk out of school in remembrance of Michael Brown. The host asked Agnew about the just-completed funeral of Brown. Agnew called it well-placed anger and followed it with a strange metaphor about making a cake. Farrow: And we´re still looking at those live

Family Thinks Otterbein Assault
May Have Been Hate Crime
WJZ-TV [Baltimore, MD], by Derek Valcourt    Original Article

BALTIMORE — Police confirm the suspect arrested for a violent attack Thursday night on a young man in the Otterbein neighborhood near Federal Hill is now a suspect in a similar attack just one night earlier in the same area. Derek Valcourt talked to the father of the latest victim and has more on the attacks. Three attacks in less than a week in Federal Hill. We have a first look at the injuries from the most recent attack—and why the victim’s family thinks this might have been a hate crime. It will take plastic surgery to properly fix the injury suffered by

Recently, several liberal professors visited Gov. Rick Scott to brief him on the “closed” science of global warming. Never mind that many scientists will tell you that science is never closed or settled. These professors — like many in the media, academia and in Hollywood — will continue to scream the sky is falling until they force more polluters out of business and cause the loss of more American jobs. Should you be one of those scientists who dares to question global warming, you stand the chance — like Galileo and Copernicus when they went against the settled science of

Pro-Amnesty Groups Sue U.S.
Gov´t for Pushing Illegals

The ACLU, the American Immigration Council and other pro-amnesty groups filed a lawsuit Friday against the federal government because they claim the Obama administration´s policies are unconstitutional. The groups filed on behalf of mothers and children deported from a detention facility in Artesia, New Mexico for policies that would ensure "rapid deportations" and create "countless hurdles" according to the ACLU for people who illegally crossed the border. The facility itself has also had its fair share of problems. The center houses over 500 people and has been accused of keeping unsanitary practices. This past summer, immigration officials halted all intake and removal practices

Networks Dodge Huge IRS Scandal News as
DOJ Attorney Says Lost Lerner E-Mails Do Exist

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton appeared on the Fox News Channel (FNC) Monday afternoon and informed viewers that a Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney admitted to his organization on Friday that the e-mails belonging to former IRS official Lois Lerner that were thought to be lost likely still exist. He declared to FNC’s Shannon Bream that the story of Lerner’s hard drive being damaged and destroyed and thus her e-mails were permanently lost has “all been a pack of malarkey” and “a big lie.” When it came to the major broadcast networks covering this huge story on their Monday evening newscasts,

Mexican President Calls for Immigration
Reform in USA: ´A Matter of Justice
Associated Press, by Brian Melley & E.J. Tamara    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/26/2014 10:36:18 AM     Post Reply
LOS ANGELES — Mexico´s president spoke of the need for U.S. immigration reform on a two-day visit to immigrant-friendly California, saying those who reject diversity and inclusion will ultimately be proven wrong. "We want to be a factor of cohesion, not division, with full respect for the sovereignty of the United States," President Enrique Pena Nieto said Monday. "This, at the end, is about — and only about — a matter of justice for those who contribute so much to the development of the American society." Pena Nieto was welcomed by Gov. Jerry Brown, who played up his immigration credentials in a

Poverty Does Not Cause Terrorism
Daily Caller, by Oliver Williams    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 8/26/2014 10:33:27 AM     Post Reply
There is a pervasive belief that poverty is a key driver of terrorism. American foreign aid increased under George W. Bush, justified partly by security concerns. Bush said at the time, “We work for prosperity and opportunity because they’re right. It’s the right thing to do. We also work for prosperity and opportunity because they help defeat terror.” Similarly Bill Clinton has stated “we have to create more opportunity for those left behind by progress, thus reducing the pool of potential terrorists.” This framing of poverty and development as national security issues continued with the Obama administration. In Obama’s reckoning

Knee offender: United flight diverted
after passengers fight over legroom
Washington Post, by Abby Phillip    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 8/26/2014 10:30:44 AM     Post Reply
A United Airlines flight from Newark to Denver was diverted because of two passengers who were fighting over a little bit of legroom. A woman and a man — both seated in the “Economy Plus” section of the aircraft, which already comes with extra legroom — were at each other’s throats because the man attached a “knee defender” device to his seat, preventing the woman in front from reclining, according the Associated Press. The $22 device locks onto the tray table on the back of the seat, making it impossible for the person in front to recline during the flight.

I thought that going on vacation with the president would be a real perk of serving as deputy press secretary in the Obama White House. (Snip) That is—when you can find some down time. As Washington chews over yet another presidential “vacation,” and that most Washington of words—“optics”—let me take you behind the scenes of the last time President Obama took flack for supposedly being “disengaged” while world events marched on around him. It was Christmas Day 2009. Osama bin Laden was still at large. A 23-year-old Nigerian man was caught trying to bring down a passenger airliner headed for

IRS Shocker: Filing Reveals
Lerner Blackberry Destroyed
New York Observer, by Sidney Powell    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/26/2014 10:10:30 AM     Post Reply
The IRS filing in federal Judge Emmet Sullivan’s court reveals shocking new information. The IRS destroyed Lerner’s Blackberry AFTER it knew her computer had crashed and after a Congressional inquiry was well underway. As an IRS official declared under the penalty of perjury, the destroyed Blackberry would have contained the same emails (both sent and received) as Lois Lerner’s hard drive. We all know by now that Lois Lerner’s hard drive crashed in June 2011 and was destroyed by IRS. The emails of up to twenty other related IRS officials were missing in remarkably similar “crashes,” leading many to speculate that

Cable Karma: Fox News soars as CNN

According to a report in The Wrap, CNN and sister network Headline News are planning to lay off 550 staffers, a huge and very painful cutback. (snip)Because progressives dominate 90% of media outlets and studiously ignore major stories like the IRS scandals, Benghazi, and basically anything harmful to Democrats, Fox News is handed the opportunity to reach the public with distinctive content unavailable elsewhere, and the public is responding. Most major media would rather be progressive than successful. But then again, progressivism almost never works as it promises, based as it is on a false notion that human nature can be

Did McDaniel wait too late to file?

Chris McDaniel´s first hurdle in his lawsuit to overturn his loss to Thad Cochran is a doozy: He may have waited too late to file it. As he worked for weeks building a case and campaigning that the election was stolen from him, McDaniel´s team said a 20-day deadline applies only to challenges of county and local elections, not a statewide U.S. Senate primary. Others, including the secretary of state, agreed with him. "Justice has no timetable," McDaniel said numerous times when questioned why it was taking so long to file his challenge of the June 24 GOP runoff for U.S. Senate. But

The Monday phone conversations likely went something like this: Obama official: "Hey, how ya doing? Going away for the holiday?" Washington reporter: "Nah, my wife´s roped me into something with her family. What´s up?" OAO: "I have something that might interest your readers. Usual background rules?" WR: "OK, yeh. What?" OAO: "The president has authorized surveillance flights over Syria for the first time." In a short period of time the similarly-leaked stories began appearing on multiple websites with similar headlines U.S. Military Prepares for Surveillance Flights Over Syria.

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

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 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
