Putin sees opportunities
as Obama turns away

Washington Times, by Charles Ortel

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 4/20/2014 5:38:41 PM

We learn this Easter Sunday from The New York Times that President Obama now embraces his inner ostrich — Russian President Vladimir Putin is but a pesky irritant, causing problems in just one region of a world that America still rightly leads. Apparently, our cocksure Nobel Peace laureate believes it is cool under the sand, even as tectonic geopolitical plates shift underneath the creaky, man-made foundation “assuring” global security. In real life, President Obama and his senior advisers are making gross mistakes of epic-defining proportions that will have profoundly negative consequences, particularly for the poorest among us.

Comments:
0bama has learned a lot from his golfing. He knows how far to stick his head in a sand trap to drown out his failed policies. 0bama may have to carry a bucket of sand with him this week on his trip to Europe.

DOJ Set to Fight Gay-Marriage
Bans in Supreme Court
ABC News, by Pierre Thomas & Mike Levine *    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/13/2014 2:22:51 PM     Post Reply
The Justice Department is set to urge the Supreme Court to uphold a lower-court ruling and block states from banning same-sex marriage, Attorney General Eric Holder said. The nation´s top law enforcement official´s remarks come just days after Utah officials announced they will ask the Supreme Court to overrule a lower court that concluded gay couples can legally marry in the state. Last month, a federal appeals court ruled that a state ban on gay marriage, approved by Utah voters in 2004, was unconstitutional, finding that states cannot keep two people from marrying simply because they are of the same sex.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Fox News Sunday guest host Brit Hume that Hamas was embedding its missile capabilities within homes to dare Israel to increase civilian casualties, a challenge he said Israel was intended to best to stop the barrage of missiles on Israeli cities. “Here’s the difference between us,” Netanyahu said. “We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.” “I just want your viewers to imagine the United States being bombarded not in one city or two cities, but in every city between New York and Colorado,” Netanyahu said.

Israel-Gaza conflict: Israeli
‘knock on roof’ missile warning
technique revealed in stunning video
Independent [UK], by Andy Withnall    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/13/2014 1:40:14 PM     Post Reply
A video has emerged showing the extraordinary “knock on the roof” technique used by the Israeli military to warn Palestinian civilians of an impending missile strike. The footage was uploaded to YouTube yesterday by the Gaza-based Watania news agency, and shows from extremely close quarters a small missile striking the roof of a house across the street. According to the caption, around 15 minutes later – though most of this time has been edited out of the final clip itself – two fully-armed missiles from an F16 jet strike one after the other, blasting the front of the house away and sending a cloud of debris and rubble into the air.

Sacramento, CA - The former Georgetown University law student who gained national attention for being denied a chance to testify in Congress for health plan contraception coverage — and then was subjected to degrading comments by radio host Rush Limbaugh — is hoping to make public policy of her own. Sandra Fluke is running as a first-time candidate for a seat in California´s state Senate to represent some of the most affluent communities of Los Angeles County, a district that stretches from the Hollywood Hills to the Palos Verdes peninsula. In a district where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1, Fluke is campaigning on

Hometown paper to Harry Reid:
‘Quit the race-baiting already’

Nevada’s largest daily newspaper is telling Sen. Harry Reid to “quit the race-baiting already” after he embarrassingly referred to Clarence Thomas as a white man. “Harry Reid is the da Vinci of distraction,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal wrote Friday. “The moment any scandal, policy failure or political defeat crashes down on him — and there have been plenty the past few years — the Senate majority leader unleashes outrageous rhetoric that’s better suited for a sandbox than what once passed for the world’s greatest deliberative body. “Worse, the Nevada Democrat has become especially fond of slinging race cards just to crank up the outrage,”

DOJ investigates Norfolk
parade float critical of Obama

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/13/2014 12:32:17 PM     Post Reply
The U.S. Department of Justice has sent a member of its Community Relations Service team to investigate a Nebraska parade float that criticized President Obama. A Fourth of July parade float featured at the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk sparked criticism when it depicted a zombie-like figure resembling Mr. Obama standing outside an outhouse, which was labeled the “Obama Presidential Library.” The Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.” The Omaha World-Herald reported Friday that the Department of Justice sent

Vienna - After the United Nations Security Council agreed to a press statement on Saturday calling for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, the foreign ministers of its five permanent members— the United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia and China— gathered in Vienna on Sunday expecting to discuss the crisis. (Snip) "Iran has a longstanding record of supplying weapons, rockets, to various terror groups in Gaza, including Hamas," the US official said from Vienna. "Those rockets are being used to fire at civilian areas, and Iran has a responsibility to cease and desist from continuing to supply weapons in this conflict."

Partly blaming unrest in the Middle East on President Barack Obama, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Saturday that Obama has not spoken firmly and forcefully on Israel´s behalf and that the country no longer trusts it has the full support of the United States because of him. The Republican governor´s remarks came as Israel targeted civilian institutions with suspected ties to the militant organization Hamas and declared it would step up its bombardment of northern Gaza. Israel says it is acting in self-defense against Hamas rockets. Christie cited the violence sparked by the deaths of three Israeli teenagers and said organizations like Hamas

Iran Foreign Minister:
We Are Not Seeking Nukes

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said his country has no interest in developing a nuclear weapon — and insisted that nukes would reduce Iran’s influence in the region, in an interview with David Gregory of NBC´s “Meet the Press” scheduled to air Sunday. “We don´t see any benefit in Iran developing a nuclear weapon,” Zarif said, adding that the country would take whatever steps necessary to convince the world it is not seeking nuclear weapons. “It doesn´t help anybody. The fact that everybody in the international community believes that mutual assured destruction — that is the way the United States, Russia and others,

Surge Of Undocumented

Washington - The thousands of undocumented minors in U.S. detention facilities includes an unknown number of pregnant teenaged immigrants. The pregnant minors have been moved into longer-term shelters operated by the Department of Health and Human Services in order to provide federally funded health care. (Snip) The rush of children, many of whom are trafficked by drug cartels and other criminal organizations, has become not only a strain on the asylum process but a political nightmare for the Obama administration. It is unclear how many of the minors are pregnant and now in HHS custody, and HHS spokesman Kenneth Wolfe

US Muslims support Obama more
than any other religious group
New York Post, by Carl Campanile    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/12/2014 8:05:46 PM     Post Reply
Nearly three quarters of American Muslims like the job President Obama is doing — by far the largest backing of any religious group, a new survey released Friday reveals. The Gallup Poll, conducted from January through June, found that 72 percent of Muslims approve of Obama’s performance, compared to 55 percent of Jews, 44 percent of Catholics and 37 percent of Protesants. Mormons were least supportive — only 18 percent gave Obama a thumbs up and 78 percent offered a thumbs down. The Muslim support should not come as a surprise given Obama’s Muslim roots. Though a practicing Christian, Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr.,

Chris Christie On Border Crisis:

Nashville - Gov. Chris Christie said on Friday that the rush of unaccompanied minors across the U.S.-Mexican border is rooted in a “failure to act decisively in Washington” on immigration going “back to the Bush administration.” Christie would not say whether he thinks the children, who number in the thousands, should be deported. “I’m not going to get into all that,” he said. He called for action from President Obama and members of Congress, but did not elaborate on what response he believes should be taken to address the thousands of undocumented immigrant children now being housed at various government shelter

Rebel Pundit interviewed the community this week about Barack Obama’s open border policies and his spending on the illegal immigrant community. Let’s just say – they are NOT HAPPY. One local resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever elected.” The Chicago resident below says: “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.“

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend. In a world where there are no

“Without borders, there is no nation,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrote in a Breitbart op-ed this week. “Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America ... President Obama´s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here ... It´s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the Left or Right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular--including the pronouns "I" and "me" and the adjective "my"--199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process. “It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website. “I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the

It’s true what they say about Michelle Obama. She has amazing arms. I saw this up close when she unfurled her bare right limb in front of me Thursday night, while the two of us were doing tapas at the jumping Barcelona on 14th Street NW. Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she moisturizes and clearly L’Oréal should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. “Ma’am, you rock,” I wanted to tell her, even though I was seated a table away from her party of eight, which included White House chef Sam Kass, and was

In his weekly radio/YouTube address, President Obama derided House Republicans’ planned lawsuit against him, warning that GOP lawmakers will spend taxpayer dollars on a frivolous legal challenge. “It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars,” Obama said.

Friday on "Democracy Now," Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) attacked his "shameful" Republican colleagues for wanting to change the 2008 child trafficking law so that the children from from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador current streaming across the border in hopes of evading deportation will be treated the same as those from Mexico before approving the $3.7 billion in emergency funding the president has requested. The Illinois Democrat said, "I think it is shameful that in the Congress of the U.S. we see members of Congress engendering and creating fear of children. We should be protecting children, not creating fear of them." Yesterday,

BOSTON — Comedian Bill Cosby and his wife Camille are supporting protesters marching across Massachusetts in opposition to Kinder Morgan’s proposed natural gas pipeline. The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land. Through a spokesman, the couple said it was “astounding” that New England’s six governors support the proposal, which they said shows “disrespect for humans, flora and fauna.” Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their
