Egypt´s Muslim Brotherhood
declared ´terrorist group´

BBC News [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 12/25/2013 3:46:05 PM

The military-backed interim Egyptian government has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group after blaming it for a deadly attack on a police HQ earlier this week. The group, whose candidate Mohammed Morsi won the presidential poll last year before being deposed by the military, had already been outlawed. Thousands of its supporters have been arrested in a crackdown. [Snip] Deputy Prime Minister Hossam Eissa announced the move, which will give the authorities more power to crack down on the Brotherhood. He said that those who belonged to the group, financed it or promoted its activities would face punishment.

I do sleep better at night knowing that Obama´s Muslim Brotherhood puppet Morsi is cooling his heels in an Egyptian prison. Remember Obama was only too happy to give millions of taxpayer dollars to the criminal Morsi in U.S. aid when Morsi was in power.
Obama betrayed America and Israel and Egypt when he tried to install the terrorist Morsi in poer in Egypt. Obama is a Muslim Brotherhood supporter. The wretch Hillary´s chief aid Huma Abedin has family in the Muslim Brotherhood. Coincidence? I don´t think so.

Since our government is so pathetic at discerning who we should back up in the incessant conflicts of the middle east, how about we just back Israel and be done with it.

Genesis 16:11-12
And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.
And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man´s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

It is as good as or better than the best, juiciest steak one has ever had to see Obama get not one, not two but multiple body-slams re Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Maybe the visceral rejection by Egypt of the terrorists will give other encroached-upon Middle East countries a heads up to not embrace them. Equate it to 18 wheeler tire marks down Obama´s back. Excellent.

Every day, author, Robert Spencer´s JIHAD WATCH, aggregates reliable material from all over the Muslim imposed world. So little of this Islamic supremacy is covered in our media, that it can easily be construed as uniform censorship and pro Brotherhood influenced propaganda. Both the commie old MSM and the New Breitbart Drudge Media, are complicit in this censorship.
And worse, neither Robert Spencer nor his New York compatriot, Pamela Geller (ATLAS SHRUGS) are given any time on either media. Spencer is a brilliant, clear speaker, watch ANY of his videos and YouTubes.

Ukraine crisis: US runs the show

BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article

Mr Lavrov told Russia Today it was "quite telling" that Kiev had re-launched its anti-terror operation against pro-Russian gunmen during a visit by US Vice-President Joe Biden. Kiev and the West say Moscow commands the gunmen - claims denied by Russia. In the past month, pro-Russian militants have overrun several cities in the eastern Donetsk region. They have occupied public buildings and installed their own officials, in similar tactics to those used to take over the Ukrainian region of Crimea earlier in the year. The US had earlier demanded that Moscow must publicly call for pro-Russian gunmen to lay down their weapons and

The top aide to a congresswoman in her California district sits in jail awaiting sentencing for the drunk-driving hit-and-run death of a 27-year-old woman whose parents are now suing the lawmaker, blaming her for failing to vet the staffer--who had two DUIs in 2006 and 2007, and a 2010 grand theft conviction--before she hired him.

While America’s wealthiest citizens continue to outpace their global peers, the country’s middle class has lost its long held distinction of being the most affluent in the world according to new research. Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries--or stronger--only a small percentage of American households are fully benefiting from it, according to the LIS analysis. Based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, income across the lower--and middle-income tiers of American society has plateaued over that time, while citizens in other advanced countries have received considerably larger rises.

Vice President Joe Biden warned on Tuesday ´it´s time for Russia to stop talking and start acting´ to reduce tension in Ukraine. Standing alongside acting Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk in Kiev, Ukraine, Biden called on Moscow to encourage masked, pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine to vacate illegally occupied government buildings and checkpoints, accept amnesty and ´address their grievances politically.´ ´We have been clear that more proactive behavior by Russia will lead to more costs and greater isolation,´ the Vice President said.

Some will seize on this as proof that Americans are credulous and anti-scientific, but I´d draw the opposite conclusion.

That´s the key--there´s a rich vein of libertarianism running through the Silicon Valley tech community that´s infuriated by the increasingly statist Democrats.

Thousands die of thirst

Telegraph [UK], by Padraic Flanagan, Laura Donnelly    Original Article

At least 1,000 hospital patients are dying needlessly each month from dehydration and poor care by doctors and nurses, according to an NHS study. The deaths from acute kidney injury could be prevented by simple steps such as nurses ensuring patients have enough to drink and doctors reviewing their medication, the researchers say. Between 15,000 and 40,000 patients die annually because hospital staff fail to diagnose the treatable kidney problem, a figure that dwarfs the death toll from superbugs like MRSA. The report comes less than a year after the NHS watchdog NICE was forced to issue guidelines on giving patients water

The term "Dark Net" is shorthand to describe the hidden and encrypted part of the internet beyond the reach of normal browsers, accessible only using the anonymous browser Tor. It´s protected by a clever traffic encryption system which makes it very difficult to locate the servers which host sites--called Tor Hidden Services--and the IP addresses of the people the visit them. Tor used to stand for The Onion Router, and so some call this world "Onionland". Anonymity and freedom rule Onionland, not censorship. Even through Tor was originally a US government research project to help protect the anonymity of dissidents

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

A pregnant journalist is recovering in hospital today after a pro-Kremlin political leader in Russia told two male aides to ´violently rape´ her at a press conference. Nationalist Vladimir Zhironovsky launched his extraordinary tirade after reporter Stella Dubovitskaya asked him an innocuous question about sanctions against Ukraine. The founder of the far right Liberal Democratic Party began shouting wildly, before suddenly manhandling two young male aides towards the pregnant mother-of-one. He then shouted to them: ´When I say, you run to her and violently rape her.´ The parliamentary reporter, who is six months pregnant, is now being treated in hospital

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.
