Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 9/27/2013 7:48:52 AM

UN chemical weapons inspectors are investigating whether three chemical attacks were carried out in Syria after the 21 August Damascus incident that sparked threats of US military action. A UN statement said that, in all, seven alleged incidents of chemical weapons use were under investigation. The UN team currently in Syria is set to complete its work on Monday. A UN resolution on making Syria´s stockpile safe is expected soon, after the US and Russia agreed the text. Experts from the world´s chemical weapons watchdog, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), are expected to begin inspecting Syria´s stockpile by Tuesday, a

Russia is now the undisputed master
of the UN Security Council
Telegraph [UK], by Con Coughlin    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/27/2013 7:46:55 AM     Post Reply
Forget all the fuss that´s being made in New York about the Iranians showing a more positive approach in their dealings with the West. The real story from this week´s UN General Assembly is that Russia, not America, is now the dominant power at the Security Council for the first time in the history of the UN. This dramatic shift in the power balance at the UN seems to have been completely overlooked by many of those covering the meeting, who are more interested in wittering on about the proposed Security Council resolution on disarming Syria´s chemical weapons stockpile (it

IPCC report:
global warming is ´unequivocal´

On Friday the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change delivers its latest verdict on the state of man-made global warming. Though the details are a secret, one thing is clear: the version of events you will see and hear in much of the media, especially from partis pris organisations like the BBC, will be the opposite of what the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report actually says. Already we have had a taste of the nonsense to come: a pre-announcement to the effect that “climate scientists” are now “95 per cent certain” that humans are to blame for climate change; an evidence-free declaration

The Westgate attackers arrived at 11.30 am in three vehicles and remained in their cars. Their continued stay in the cars raised suspicion of private security guards (Securex) guarding the building. Alarmed by the men in cars, the Securex guards made a call to Parklands Police Station asking for help. [Snip] Inside the building there were various armed people. There were at least 12 off-duty British SAS officers, US marines with a UN diplomat and several others. At the roof of the building there was a cooking competition for children.

Blame game over Westgate attack
Daily Nation [Kenya], by Staff    Original Article

Rivalry among security agencies and lack of clear command lines badly affected the response to the terrorist attack on the Westgate Mall, the Nation has established. Jurisdictional differences appear to have extended to blame games among security agencies, as Kenya recovers from its worst terror attack since the 1998 bombing of the Embassy of the United States of America in Nairobi. Various units of the Kenya Police and the Kenya Defence Forces played key roles in the rescue operation after a band of terrorists linked to Somalia-based Al-Shabaab attacked the shopping mall on Saturday and killed dozens before holding an

Soldiers told of the horrific torture meted out by terrorists in the Nairobi mall massacre yesterday with claims hostages were dismembered, had their eyes gouged out and were left hanging from hooks in the ceiling. Men were said to have been castrated and had fingers removed with pliers before being blinded and hanged. Children were found dead in the food court fridges with knives still embedded in their bodies, it was claimed. Most of the defeated terrorists, meanwhile, were reportedly discovered ‘burnt to ashes’, set alight by the last extremist standing to try to protect their identities.

Christians are being
thrown to the lions again
Telegraph [UK], by Peter Stanford    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/26/2013 10:44:41 PM     Post Reply
Archbishop Justin Welby’s choice of the word “martyrs” to describe the 81 Pakistani Christians killed when their church in Peshawar was targeted by suicide bombers has raised eyebrows. It is the sort of language avoided nowadays in the secular, sceptical West, with its taken-for-granted religious freedoms, in case it makes people feel uncomfortable. Yet in terms of Christian history the Archbishop of Canterbury’s description is surely accurate. These 81 worshippers at All Saints Anglican church, a 19th-century colonial legacy in the Kohati Gate district of the city, died because they insisted last Sunday on practising their faith, as martyrs in

IPCC report: Britain could

For the first time, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is due to give a clear prediction of how global warming will affect currents in the Atlantic Ocean. It will say that the circulation of warm and cold water in the Atlantic, which includes the Gulf Stream, will weaken by 20 to 44 percent by the end of the century. Scientists claim that such a slow-down in the Gulf Stream will have a big impact on Britain, causing cooling of about 1.8F (1C) and disrupting weather patterns. [Snip] Scientists warn that the resulting cooling would mask the impacts

Target Britain: Islamic fanatics behind
Kenya massacre in massive UK terror plot

Muslim terrorists behind the Kenya shopping centre massacre planned to attack high-profile British targets including The Ritz hotel and Eton public school. Members of the Al Shabaab terror group also set their sights on ­London suburbs such as Golders Green and Stamford Hill. They listed targets in a training manual which contained a blueprint for this week’s gun and bomb rampage at Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall. [Snip] It said: “Our objectives are to strike London with low-cost operations that would cause a heavy blow among the hierarchy.” One British-based security expert said yesterday that an Al Qaeda-backed attack on a

Never one to miss an opportunity to make a fool of herself on the world stage, Argentina’s president Cristina Kirchner has railed against Britain yet again over the Falklands. According to a report by MercoPress, the South Atlantic News Agency, Kirchner defended her own country’s development of nuclear energy in a speech this week at the UN General Assembly, while accusing Britain of “militarising” the South Atlantic with nuclear submarines: “We do not go around condemning the use of nuclear energy with military ends, and at the same time send out nuclear submarines,” Cristina Fernandez fired during her speech.

The Archbishop of Canterbury has said that Christians are suffering "mass martyrdom" in the Muslim world--and it´s hard to disagree. A recent bomb attack took the lives of 85 people in Pakistan, churches are being destroyed in Egypt and Christians are on the run in Syria. Fraser Nelson and Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith discuss the nightmare and conclude that the British government is too hamstrung by liberal political correctness to do anything--and Fr Lucie-Smith blames that partly on Richard Dawkins and his radical atheist crew. Also Dr Alexander Lee gives us a new take on the Renaissance, which he says wasn´t

Ted Cruz spoke for 21 hours against Obamacare in the Senate and what was his reward? John McCain slapped him down and called him undemocratic. In McCain´s opinion, the fiscal conservative hawks of the GOP have evolved into "wacko birds"--a kind of dinosaur that squawks about debt and flaps his non-aerodynamic wings as he falls towards the earth and certain extinction. [Snip] Opposing Obamacare isn´t undemocratic because it´s both constitutionally allowed and quite popular to do. According to one poll, 44 percent think Obamacare is a bad idea and only 31 percent love it. Some 45 percent think it´ll have

In the aftermath of Senator Ted Cruz’s epic performance on the Senate floor, a few observations: After his disgraceful attacks on Cruz, including his reach-across-the-aisle, dog-in-the-manger response today, this should be the end of Senator John McCain as a voice of influence in the Republican party. Ditto his mini-me, Senator Lindsey Graham. Indeed, the entire Old Guard of business-as-usual “comity” fans passeth. When you care more about what the other side thinks, it’s probably time either to switch teams or step down. There is new leadership in the GOP, whether the party wants to admit it or not: Cruz, Rand

A very unhappy Senator John McCain (R-AZ) rebuked Senator Ted Cruz for accusing his GOP allies of being “appeasers” along the line of Neville Chamberlain’s Munich deal with Adolf Hitler in 1938. “I resoundingly reject that allegation,” McCain said on the Senate floor. “That allegation, in my view, does a great disservice for those brave Americans and those who stood up and said what’s happening in Europe cannot stand…Amongst them were my father and grandfather.”

PRINCETON, NJ -- As Washington braces for another budget showdown, this time with the threat of defunding the new healthcare law in the mix, the key political force pushing for conservative policies sees diminished popular support. Fewer Americans now describe themselves as supporters of the Tea Party movement than did at the height of the movement in 2010, or even at the start of 2012. Today´s 22% support nearly matches the record low found two years ago.

The status quo falls apart when people discover, first to their surprise, then to their glee, that it’s lost its teeth. The presidency of Barack Obama appears to be unraveling — whether the yarn will be pulled out to the last inch remains to be seen, but a lot of it is already coiled on the floor. First the UK parliament, then both parties of Congress balked at his Syrian policy. Then Putin humiliated him so badly internationally that he retreated to the safety of domestic policy. But while resting between rounds he was immediately beset by his own cornerpeople.

Rep. Peter King, who has pulled no punches in criticizing Ted Cruz, said Thursday that supporters of the Texas senator have been bombarding his office with “vile” phone calls. The New York Republican has called Cruz a fraud for his calls to defund Obamacare, and said the senator’s campaign this summer to get the House to pass a government funding bill that defunds the health care law led to some offensive phone calls to King’s office.

Former President Bill Clinton said Wednesday that he believes his daughter, 33-year old Chelsea Clinton, has the potential to one day be a better president than his wife, former New York senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In an interview set to run late Wednesday on CNN’s Piers Morgan Live, Clinton was asked by the host who he thought would make a better president – his wife Hillary, or his daughter Chelsea. “Day after tomorrow, my wife because she’s had more experience,” he said. “Over the long run, Chelsea. She knows more than we do about everything.” Clinton lauded his daughter’s intelligence,

Schmidt said Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball” that it’s time for the GOP to stand up to the “asininity” embodied by Palin and others. “For the last couple of years, we’ve had this wing of the party running roughshod over the rest of the party.

It seems that Hillary Clinton’s hair length is getting shorter as anticipation surrounding her expected presidential candidacy continues to grow. On Tuesday she attended the 2013 Clinton Global Initiative sporting a new, shorter ‘do. The style appears to be a piece-y, layered bouffant with wispy side swept bangs and lots of volume in the back. A source tells MailOnline that Clinton had celebrity stylist John Barrett cut her hair at his Bergdorf Goodman salon on Monday, and says that Clinton ´was grinning when she left and was obviously happy with the ´do.´

Yesterday, I wrote that the old guard RINO wing of the GOP was collapsing because the base had aligned itself with politicians willing to place principle above party. As if on cue, a who’s who of go-along-to-get-along Republicans has crawled out of the woodwork. First up, we had John McCain. He was angry, but his diatribe was nothing compared to the double-barreled rage-fest being employed by New York Republican Rep. Pete King. Yesterday, King (who’s still considering a 2016 presidential run) spoke with the always-unbiased New York Times. During his interview, he called Cruz a “fraud” and referred to his anti-Obamacare

An email sent to students by a University of Maryland official that cites the Trayvon Martin shooting as evidence "it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida" is being blasted as the latest evidence of a left-wing bias on campus. The email, from William Dorland, director of the school´s Honors College, starts by welcoming students back to campus, but then quickly veers into politics. "This year, we learned that it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida," it reads, in a reference to the trial of George Zimmerman, who was cleared of all charges
