Mali Islamists counter attack,
promise France long war

Original Article

Bamako/Paris - Al Qaeda-linked Islamist rebels launched a counteroffensive in Mali on Monday after four days of French air strikes on their northern strongholds, seizing the central town of Diabaly and promising to drag France into a brutal Afghanistan-style war. (Snip) Paris is determined to shatter Islamist domination of northern Mali, which many fear could become a launchpad for terrorism attacks on the West and a base for coordination with al Qaeda in Yemen, Somalia and North Africa. MUJWA, which has imposed strict sharia law in its northern fiefdom of Gao, promised France would pay for

Comments:
* [w/ Daniel Flynn].

I can´t see any other reason that the French give in this article but wanting to stop Al Qaeda from taking a democracy and turning it into a place that practices their Wahabi Sharia law. Of course, the French really see Mali as a springboard for endless terrorism worldwide. Finally, our "friends" are finally waking up and ignoring the UN in their lack of resolve. [Must be their ties to so many third-world Islamic nations that won´t commit to "peace."]

Hillary where ya hiding? I´m surprised she hasn´t made a statement yet, she´s so full of smart power. There used to be a guy in this area who kept all the wingnuts in check. Now who was that? Oh yeah Qaddafi, the guy we just had to get rid of. Now France is going to get mired down, NATO will soon follow and I´ll bet by summer there are US boots on the ground. Good thing Obama´s taken care of al qaeda.

Brennan has been stirring up AL Queda to further his Islamist agenda.
according to Ulsterman today he was also behind restraint under Clinton that left OBL in place to do 9/11.
Brennan is a globalist who does not have Americas best interests in mind.
What other disaster is he setting up after Benghazi?

A combat brigade is currently in training to go to Africa this year. First, they have to do their cultural sensitivity training, them their mission training. How sadly ironic is it that the Mali troops we may be fighting against were trained and equipped by us.

Alexandria, Egypt - An Egyptian court on Saturday sentenced two supporters of former President Mohamed Mursi to death for committing murder during violence that broke out in Alexandria last year after the army deposed the Islamist head of state. The two men - Mahmoud Ramadan and Abdullah el-Ahmedi - were standing trial on charges that included throwing youths from the roof of a building in the Mediterranean city.

Shannon, Ireland - Halfway home from Saudi Arabia, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has abruptly changed course and will stay in Europe for talks on the Ukraine crisis. Flying from Riyadh to Shannon, Ireland, for a refueling stop on Saturday, Kerry decided to turn his plane around and was traveling to Paris for a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov scheduled for Sunday evening. Kerry spoke to Lavrov on the flight after President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed in a call on Friday to have their foreign ministers meet to discuss a possible diplomatic resolution to the Ukraine situation.

Russia has "absolutely no intention" of ordering its armed forces to cross over the Ukrainian border, Russia´s foreign minister says, signalling Moscow wants to ease tensions in the worst East-West standoff since the Cold war. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov reinforced a message from President Vladimir Putin that Russia will settle - at least for now - for annexing Crimea, although it has thousands of troops near Ukraine´s eastern border. "We have absolutely no intention of - or interest in - crossing Ukraine´s borders," Mr Lavrov told a Russian television channel. He added, however, that Russia was ready to protect the rights of Russian speakers,

The defence for accused Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say the FBI approached his brother and fellow suspect Tamerlan about becoming an informant on the Chechen and Muslim community. The United States is to seek a rare federal death penalty for Dzhokhar after three people were killed and about 260 wounded on April 15 last year when two bombs made of explosives-packed pressure cookers went off near the finish line of the Boston marathon. Dzhokhar, then 19, and his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan were cornered by police after a four-day manhunt. Tamerlan died after an exchange of fire with police and

Our Noel Sheppard Passed Away

Our Noel Sheppard passed away yesterday (Friday) morning at about 5:00 AM. Say a prayer for the soul of a man we´ll all miss professionally, and many, many of us will miss personally as well. Noel was not just a force of nature, he was a very good man. How quickly this all happened. Just two months ago, Noel wrote about suddenly getting cancer at 53 called "Cancer´s Ray of Hope." Nine days ago, he wrote us and said he was interested in writing about his "progress" -- and he put "progress" in quotes. We were all wishing for better news, and really couldn't imagine this was a battle that would end this way.

Lydia DePillis´ story last week about the imminent demise of low-cal liquor made me realize that I don´t spend a lot of time thinking about the calorie content of booze. This isn´t an accident - beer, wine and liquor manufacturers are held to very different labeling standards than other food and beverage makers, and those standards don´t require the familiar ´nutrition facts´ you see everywhere else. The history behind this is complicated and a little insane - after Prohibition, beer makers were actually forbidden from putting alcohol content information on their labels. They finally sued for the right to do so in 1987.

Los Angeles - Authorities say a magnitude-5.1 earthquake has shaken the Los Angeles area. The U.S. Geological Survey originally estimated the quake to be a magnitude-5.3. It said the Friday quake struck at about 9:11 p.m. and was centered near Brea in Orange County — about 20 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. About an hour earlier, a 3.6 quake hit nearby in the city of La Habra. There were no immediate reports of damage.

Can Europe wean itself

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/29/2014 12:16:12 AM     Post Reply
One of the companies most entwined in the natural gas business in Europe is the Italian oil giant ENI – and that has put it smack in the middle of the crisis between Russia and western nations. ENI is the biggest seller of natural gas in Europe, providing 22 percent of the market. It is also the biggest customer of the Russian gas monopoly Gazprom, worth about 10 billion euros a year, and it might join with Gazprom to build a new pipeline under the Black Sea. It has a deal with Russia’s biggest oil company,Rosneft, to explore in the Barents Sea. It also has rights to look for shale gas in Ukraine and plans to propose reworking some old neglected oil

A spokesman for the New York City company that manages 1 World Trade Center says the building´s head of security has resigned. The Durst Organization´s Jordan Barowitz confirms David Velazquez resigned Friday. The departure comes just days after the arrests of three skydiving enthusiasts who in September parachuted off the building, the nation´s tallest skyscraper. It comes about two weeks after authorities say a New Jersey teenager sneaked onto the site and climbed to the top of the 1,776-foot tower to take pictures. Barowitz says the company took over security of the tower in January.

´Noah´ Review: Brilliantly Sinister
Anti-Christian Filmmaking
Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/28/2014 11:53:50 PM     Post Reply
When atheist director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky promised that his epic "Noah" would be "the least biblical film ever made," that was not hyperbole. "Noah" is a brilliant, compelling, beautifully-mounted, beautifully-acted piece of storytelling conceived for the sinister purpose of leading people to believe that Christianity and Judaism are something they are not. (Snip) What does matter, though, is The Message. The Message is everything. And this is where Aronofsky is the snake in the garden. Using a $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

"This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators.
