Just a few weeks after he was released from federal prison in March 2012 on fraud convictions, Dearborn cleric Ahmad Jibril told his followers in a fiery sermon posted online: “When your brothers in Syria speak, everyone today needs to shut their mouth and listen, because they’re proving themselves to be real men.” Jibril’s talk was the beginning of a number of videos and online comments that have made him an internationally known inspirational figure for militants in Syria. Over the past two years, Jibril has become the most popular religious leader online for Westerners who’ve joined the battle against

Dennis Rodman denies Kim Jong-un
executed uncle, says labor camps no big deal
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 5/5/2014 9:06:32 AM     Post Reply
Dennis Rodman — on record several times referring to North Korea’s dictator as his lifelong friend — now says Kim Jong-un didn’t order his uncle and ex-girlfriend to be killed. They were both “standing right behind me” during my most recent visit to the country, the retired professional basketball player said during an interview with DuJour magazine. Media around the world reported a few months ago that Mr. Kim executed his uncle, a family member who wielded considerable power in the nation and who was viewed as the second-in-charge. Various reports also said that the dictator then purged his uncle’s

State lawmaker stands by his

A state lawmaker from Sioux Falls is being mocked, criticized and praised for an Internet posting in which he accused doctors of covering up the negative health risks associated with anal sex. "Certainly there are board-certified doctors in our state who will attest to what seems self-evident to so many: gay sex is not good for the body or mind," Republican Rep. Steve Hickey wrote in an April 28 post on his Facebook page. Hickey, who also is a pastor at Church of the Gate in Sioux Falls, said he would question the judgment of any doctor who disagrees with his assessment,

As Iraqis went to the polls this week for the first parliamentary election since the U.S. military withdrew from the country in 2011, something was missing from the streets of Baghdad — cars.(snip)The statistics show just how precipitously violence has risen in the years following the American withdrawal. During this year alone, AFP’s Baghdad bureau has recorded more than 3,000 violent deaths, putting the country on pace for more than 12,000 casualties by the end of 2014. By comparison, AFP recorded less than 7,000 violent deaths in all of 2013. In 2012, the Brookings Institute tallied roughly 5,200 casualties among

Netanyahu pushes to define Israel as
nation state of Jewish people only
Guardian, (UK), by Peter Beaumont    Original Article

Binyamin Netanyahu will push ahead with a rare change to Israel´s basic laws – which amount to the country´s constitution – to insist Israel is "the nation state of one people only – the Jewish people – and of no other people". At Sunday´s weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said the civil rights of minorities, including Arabs, would be guaranteed, and the move was vital at a time when aspects of Israel´s legitimacy were "under a constant and increasing assault from abroad and at home". Netanyahu proposed the change last week during a visit to Tel Aviv´s Independence Hall, attracting fierce criticism from

Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush showed courage in breaking his "read my lips: no new taxes" campaign pledge to broker a 1990 budget compromise that may have cost him re-election two years later, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation said on Sunday. The organization honored the 41st U.S. president with its 2014 Profile in Courage Award, praising the Republican leader´s "decision to put country above party and political prospects" in the deal with congressional Democrats. "America´s gain was President Bush´s loss," Jack Schlossberg, grandson of former president John F. Kennedy and a member of the award

Health Care Spending Soars
9.9% On ObamaCare In Q1
Investor´s Business Daily, by Ed Carson    Original Article

The U.S. economy grew at a tepid 0.1% annual rate in the first quarter, the weakest growth since Q4 2012. But health care spending shot up by the most in at least 15 years thanks to ObamaCare costs.(snip)This isn´t what President Obama and other Affordable Care Act supporters have said would happen. They´ve argue that the law would rein in medical costs, even while providing massive subsidies to expand coverage to millions of people. The White House had touted recent data showing slowing health care costs, though that trend preceded ObamaCare and was global. The GDP report offers the clearest

The raid comes on the same day Diaz is expected in court to be re-arraigned. Furtado and Luis Uribe are scheduled to appear in court tomorrow. "Gerardo Uribe is at large and is considered a fugitive from justice," prosecutors said.

Democrats have abandoned the ‘war on poverty’
Tennessean, (TN), by Mona Charen    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 4/30/2014 10:02:58 AM     Post Reply
Remember poverty? It was once a chief preoccupation of the Democratic Party. Lyndon Johnson made war on it. An entire ecosystem of federal, state and local programs has been created over the course of the past half-century to combat it, costing taxpayers more than $1 trillion annually. Yet the Democratic Party seems to have forgotten the poor. The proposal to increase the minimum wage by a few dollars is trifling compared with the vaunting ambitions of the War on Poverty. Sargent Shriver, Johnson´s poverty czar, predicted that welfare state programs would eliminate poverty by 1976. Throughout the post-Great Society era, Democrats

U.S. economy slows to stall-speed

The U.S. economy stalled in the first three months of 2014, but don´t panic yet as it´s probably just the winter weather effect. Gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic activity, grew at a 0.1% annual pace in the first quarter, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Wednesday. That´s brutally slow, even by sluggish post-recession standards. Since the Great Recession ended in June 2009, the economy has been growing at a rate of about 2% to 3% per year. Economists think the slowdown is merely a temporary phenomenon due to harsh winter weather. If that theory holds true, the economy should

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton joined Adriana Cohen and Joe Battenfeld on Boston Herald Radio’s “Trending Now” to talk about Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s most recent gaffe and the Obama administration’s foreign policy. Q: First of all, we want to ask you about our former senator John Kerry using the word “apartheid” to describe what Israel is doing. How much damage has this done? Should he apologize? Should he resign? A: Well, he should certainly apologize. The comments are outrageous and false and the apology that he did give yesterday was completely inadequate.

Make it go away! That was the message of the Obama administration and their friends in the media for the past two years, and now we know why: Benghazi is the scandal they always denied it was. Thanks to a lawsuit by watchdog group Judicial Watch, the administration last week released correspondence about the terrorist attack in Libya on Sept. 11, 2012 that left US ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others dead. One memo, from Ben Rhodes, the deputy national security director for strategic communications, shows how the administration was trying to spin the attack as something other than their

A Democratic member of the House intelligence committee called Sunday for his party to boycott the newly announced committee tasked with probing the Benghazi attacks, dismissing new evidence that Republicans have called a "smoking gun" showing the White House politicized the tragedy. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told "Fox News Sunday" that Democrats should not give the select committee more "credibility" by joining. "I think it´s a colossal waste of time," he said. "I don´t think it makes sense, really, for Democrats to participate." Schiff, calling the committee a "tremendous red herring," acknowledged he doesn´t know what

CONCORD, N.H. – The first openly gay bishop in the Anglican church has announced he is divorcing his husband. Retired Bishop Gene Robinson announced that he is divorcing partner Mark Andrew in an email to the Diocese of New Hampshire Saturday and an article for The Daily Beast. The coupled entered into a civil union in 2008 that converted to a marriage when New Hampshire legalized gay marriage in 2010.

MIAMI— Vice President Joe Biden extoled immigration as crucial to American innovation Saturday at a college graduation ceremony in South Florida. The Miami Dade College graduates from two campuses and their families, 2,000 strong, cheered as a procession of 39 flags from their home countries, entered the gym and opened the program. Biden acknowledged that he was addressing many immigrants and the children and grandchildren of immigrants, many from South America and the Caribbean. Biden said a "constant, substantial stream of immigrants" is important to the American economy, urging citizenship for immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. "That´s why we

A demand that Secretary of State John Kerry testify before Congress about his department´s compliance with requests for information about the Benghazi terrorist attack angered his spokesperson, who faulted lawmakers for failing to give him the opportunity to appear voluntarily. "[I]t´s highly unusual for a subpoena to be issued before there´s even an official invitation for testimony. I think everyone can make their own judgments about that," State Department spokesperson Marie Harf said. "I´m not sure the secretary´s even aware of the request, again, given his travel.

"Saturated fat does not cause heart disease"—or so concluded a big study published in March in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. How could this be? The very cornerstone of dietary advice for generations has been that the saturated fats in butter, cheese and red meat should be avoided because they clog our arteries. For many diet-conscious Americans, it is simply second nature to opt for chicken over sirloin, canola oil over butter. The new study´s conclusion shouldn´t surprise anyone familiar with modern nutritional science, however. The fact is, there has never been solid evidence for the idea that these

In response to More Buffoonery: Obama Flacks Mock Fox News´ Benghazi Coverage : I think of all this as a series of coded commands to the White House´s media allies, calling the Praetorian Guard together one last time to close ranks and ignore the Benghazi story. Team Obama has been describing this as an "old story" since before Hillary Clinton stood at that ceremony and repeated the "spontaneous video protest lie" right into the faces of the victims´ families. The media has generally been very agreeable about passing that spin along to the public. There are signs it isn´t going

George Clooney´s human rights lawyer fiancée is defending Colonel Gaddafi´s notoriously brutal spy chief as he goes on trial in Libya charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity. Amal Alamuddin is representing Abdullah al-Senussi who is accused of a string of human rights abuses dating back to the 2011 Arab-spring uprising and civil war which unseated Gaddafi. But while few people doubt that Senussi is guilty, the International Criminal Court´s decision to allow the case to be heard in Libya has sparked a firestorm of controversy that threatens to tarnish its reputation. He and his co-defendant Saif al-Islam Gaddafi,

Hi, everybody. My number one priority as President is doing whatever I can to create more jobs and opportunity for hardworking families. And yesterday, we learned that businesses added 273,000 jobs last month. All told, our businesses have now created 9.2 million new jobs over 50 consecutive months of job growth. But we need to keep going — to create more good jobs, and give middle-class families a sense of security. And I want to work with Congress to do it. But so far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked or voted down every serious idea to create jobs.

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is set to join journalists, government officials, politicians and media personalities Saturday night at the White House Correspondents´ Association dinner. It´s an evening of humour and celebrity-gazing that´s become an annual tradition in the nation´s capital. To prepare for the event, Obama is spending the afternoon golfing at Fort Belvoir in Virginia, with three White House aides. Joel McHale, star of the NBC series "Community," is the dinner´s featured entertainer. The dinner often has come at key moments of Obama´s presidency.
