Obama’s Department of Labor
Bans Employees From Talking
To The Daily Caller [VIDEO]
Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley    Original Article

Happy Labor Day, America. As we celebrate the annual day of paid rest arbitrated into our calendar by powerful 19th century New York labor unions, we at The Daily Caller are also celebrating another milestone: We’re banned from talking to the Department of Labor. Department of Labor (DOL) Office of Public Affairs senior advisor Carl Fillichio placed TheDC as well as National Review on the department’s permanent “no-contact list” in a profanity-laden rant at a March 31 staff meeting. Fillichio said that an employee that he suspected of leaking to the press “is an asshole” and swiftly put our humble

Woman Is First to Be Ruled
Eligible for Asylum in U.S.
on Basis of Domestic Abuse
New York Times, by Julia Preston    Original Article

The nation’s highest immigration court has found for the first time that women who are victims of severe domestic violence in their home countries can be eligible for asylum in the United States. The decision on Tuesday by the Board of Immigration Appeals in the case of a battered wife from Guatemala resolved nearly two decades of hard-fought legal battles over whether such women could be considered victims of persecution. The ruling could slow the pace of deportations from the Southwest border, because it creates new legal grounds for women from Central America caught entering the country illegally in the surge this summer

Obama’s 5 Worst Foreign

Since Barack Obama has been the Hindenburg of Presidents on the domestic front, there hasn´t been as much commentary as you´d expect about the fact that he has been the Titanic of Presidents on foreign policy. George W. Bush certainly made his mistakes as President, primarily in Iraq, but you did at least get the sense that his administration was full of capable, serious adults sincerely grappling with a new strategic problem for the country. On the other hand, when it comes to foreign policy, Obama comes across like a bored kid playing war because his mother won´t let him come

To Defeat Terror, We
Need the World’s Help
New York Times, by John Kerry    Original Article

In a polarized region and a complicated world, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria presents a unifying threat to a broad array of countries, including the United States. What’s needed to confront its nihilistic vision and genocidal agenda is a global coalition using political, humanitarian, economic, law enforcement and intelligence tools to support military force. In addition to its beheadings, crucifixions and other acts of sheer evil, which have killed thousands of innocents in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, including Sunni Muslims whose faith it purports to represent, ISIS (which the United States government calls ISIL,

Stop Dithering, Confront ISIS

After more than three years, almost 200,000 dead in Syria, the near collapse of Iraq, and the rise of the world’s most sinister terrorist army — the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which has conquered vast swaths of both countries — President Obama’s admission this week that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to deal with this threat is startling. It is also dangerous. The president clearly wants to move deliberately and consult with allies and Congress as he considers what to do about ISIS. No one disputes that goal. But the threat ISIS poses only grows over time. It cannot be contained. It must be confronted. This requires a comprehensive strategy,

Bogota, Columbia - A mystery illness has overwhelmed a small town in northern Colombia as scores of teenage girls have been hospitalized with symptoms that parents fear could be an adverse reaction to a popular vaccine against cervical cancer. Authorities say they still don’t know what caused more than 200 girls in El Carmen de Bolivar to come down with symptoms (Snip) Some have hinted that the town of 95,000 near Colombia’s Caribbean coast could be experiencing a rare case of mass hysteria. Parents are on edge however because all the girls, ranging in age from 9 to 16, were injected in recent months with Gardasil, an HPV vaccine.

The Department of Homeland Security quickly denied claims on Friday from a watchdog group that the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) has militants stationed in Juarez, Mexico who plan an ´imminent´ attack against the United States. A DHS spokesman was bewildered, telling MailOnline that ´we are aware of absolutely nothing credible to substantiate this claim´ made by Judicial Watch, a center-right group. [Snip] And during a late-morning media briefing, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said flatly that ´the most detailed intelligence assessment that I can offer from here is that there is no evidence or indication right now

We would like to start by saying two things: one, that wherever we might have looked, all we could see was nothing but unmistakable signs of decomposition, from hospitals lacking syringes and grocery stores with fingerprint machines at checkout counters to our glorious Armed Forces officials trying to prevent the smuggling of flour bread and gas into Colombia, also keeping in mind the large number of horrific murders, something never seen before in the history of Venezuela. And two, an incapable government that has been fearful of taking the necessary steps to restore at least a bit of rationality to an

Extortion: Radical Democrat activist groups stand to collect millions from Attorney General Eric Holder´s record $17 billion deal to settle alleged mortgage abuse charges against Bank of America. Buried in the fine print of the deal, which includes $7 billion in soft-dollar consumer relief, are a raft of political payoffs to Obama constituency groups. In effect, the government has ordered the nation´s largest bank to create a massive slush fund for Democrat special interests. Besides requiring billions in debt forgiveness payments to delinquent borrowers in Cleveland, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Oakland, Detroit, Chicago and other Democrat strongholds — and up to $500 million to

Why Obama’s ‘we don’t have

By now, President Obama´s remark that "we don´t have a strategy yet" has made the rounds. Republicans were quick to pounce on it, as well they should have. But while the White House went into damage-control mode, emphasizing that it was a reference to the lack of decisions about increasing military action in Iraq and/or Syria and not a lack of a broader strategy there, the damage was already done. As with all gaffes, the worst ones are the ones that confirm people´s preexisting suspicions or fit into an easy narrative. That´s why "47 percent" stung Mitt Romney so much, and it´s

The federal government believes a terrorist attack at the U.S.-Mexico border is imminent and has put out a bulletin on the matter, a government watchdog group reported Friday. Judicial Watch released a statement that said Islamic terrorist groups who have infiltrated the city of Ciudad Juarez aim to use car bombs to attack American interests. “High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued,” the statement read. “Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been

‘All hope is lost’: Worried
Dems cry desperation

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee would like you to donate. Right now. The campaign organization, hoping to lead Democrats to control of the House come November, has spent the past week sending out a series of strongly-worded, seemingly desperate, fundraising e-mails trying to get supporters to donate. “All hope is lost,” reads the subject of one such e-mail. “We’re in serious trouble,” it continues. “Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers are massively outspending us…If we get blown out right now, we might as well give up hope until 2016.” Another e-mail says Democratic campaigners weren’t ready for Republican attack ads.

Reparations Could Prevent the Next Ferguson

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

WARSAW Over and over again — throughout the entirety of my adult life, or so it feels — I have been shown Polish photographs from the beautiful summer of 1939: The children playing in the sunshine, the fashionable women on Krakow streets. I have even seen a picture of a family wedding that took place in June 1939, in the garden of a Polish country house I now own. All of these pictures convey a sense of doom, for we know what happened next. September 1939 brought invasion from both east and west, occupation, chaos, destruction, genocide. Most of the

The organization calling itself the Islamic State has risen from the fog of war in Syria and Iraq in recent months and drawn the attention of the world with major victories on both sides of the Euphrates River that have claimed swaths of territory for its declared caliphate, or Islamic State. Now in the organization´s new English language publication, Dabiq, aimed at young Muslims in western states, the extremist organization declared, "Islamic State will do everything within its means to continue striking down every apostate who stands as an obstacle on its path towards Palestine."

President Obama needs to focus

meet global challenges
Washington Post, by Editorial    Original Article

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S acknowledgment that “we don’t have a strategy yet” in Syria understandably attracted the most attention after his perplexing meeting with reporters Thursday. But his restatement of the obvious was not the most dismaying aspect of his remarks. The president’s goal, to the extent he had one, seemed to be to tamp down all the assessments of gathering dangers that his own team had been issuing over the previous days. This argument with his own administration is alarming on three levels. The first has to do with simple competence. One can only imagine the whiplash that foreign leaders must

When we first began digging in to the Mike Brown story something odd was immediately identifiable. The individual witness statements, when compared over time, were case studies in the evolution of self-contradiction. But why ? It’s generally a true statement that eye witnesses testimonials can often be unreliable; but the statements of the people hitting the New York media circuit were beyond unreliable – they were contradicting themselves from show to show, often within hours. A little research into the shooting aftermath and things begin to fall into place.The primary witnesses used to create what we’ll call ‘the media narrative’

NEWPORT, R.I.— President Barack Obama on Friday blamed dysfunction in Congress on a Republican Party he said is captive to an ideologically rigid, unproductive and cynical faction, urging like-minded Democrats to show up for November´s midterm elections. Addressing Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Rhode Island and another in New York, Obama said Republicans had realized that blocking all progress led Americans to become cynical about government. Republicans consider that "a pretty good thing" because they don´t believe in government to begin with, Obama said.

On Thursday, Modoc and Siskiyou counties in California, adjacent to Oregon, formally requested state officials to allow them to secede from the state and form a new state to be called Jefferson, according to the Sacramento Bee. The two counties’ governments directly petitioned the secretaries of the state Assembly and Senate after they had already submitted a petition to the secretary of state asserting that they weren’t represented strongly enough in the state. Mark Baird organized a rally at the state capitol that drew 70 supporters with flags and T-shirts displaying two X´s and a coiled snake that said "State

2014 will be a year when the populations of the world began to wake up and smell the smoke. (Snip) But it may be no dream. David Cameron just warned Britain to brace for a possible ISIS attack on its shores. The jayvee ISIS team Obama scoffed at sure gets around. Cameron says ISIS ‘is more dangerous than al-Qaeda’. The doorman the president contemptuously glowered over at the summits is acting uppity too. That doorman, Vladimir Putin, has just used the “N” word in Ukraine. The “N” word being “Nuclear”.

Islamic State (IS, formerly known as ISIS) is working on biological weapons, according to data reportedly recovered from a IS-linked laptop, upping the ante in the global terror group´s pledge to spread Islamism around the world by force. [Snip] The nineteen-page Arabic document explained the infection process in detail, it said, including weaponization. "The advantage of biological weapons is that they do not cost a lot of money, while the human casualties can be huge," the document states.

But now, everyone’s a winner as the Oscar winning actress has just tied the knot with third husband Brad Pitt, and former flame Jenny is also getting married. Model and actress Jenny, who embarked on a lesbian love affair with Angelina after they starred together in Foxfire, is engaged to partner Michelle Harper.

Ukraine is mounting a push for NATO membership as it faces down Russia, a move that comes ahead of a major NATO summit and as the Ukrainian ambassador to Canada renews calls for armaments from the West. Ukraine Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Friday said he’d move toward suspending the country’s “non-bloc” status, a first step toward pursuing North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) membership, ahead of the alliance’s summit in Wales next week.The push from Ukraine will force Western leaders – including Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who will attend the summit – to once again evaluate what role to play in

A laptop allegedly seized from an Isis (also known as Islamic State) base in Syria contains plans to launch devastating terror attacks harnessing the bubonic plague. (Snip) A 19-page document outlines plans to weaponise the bubonic plague from infected animals. It describes how to safely test diseases to be used in terror attacks. "When the microbe is injected in small mice, the symptoms of the disease should start to appear within 24 hours," the document explains. It also contains a 26-page fatwa, or Islamic ruling, proclaiming the use of chemical weapons to be acceptable against kafirs, or non-believers.
