Right remains steadfast in
opposition to releasing terrorists

Jerusalem Post (Israel), by Lahav Harkov

Original Article

Posted By:EagleEye, 6/15/2014 2:01:08 PM

The kidnapping of three teens on the way home from school in Gush Etzion on Thursday did not weaken the resolve of politicians who oppose releasing Palestinian terrorists. Bayit Yehudi faction chairwoman Ayelet Shaked said Sunday her bill limiting presidential pardons to murderers and terrorists, which passed a preliminary Knesset reading last week, is more relevant than ever. "Releasing murderers pours fuel on the fire of terror and will encourage more and more kidnapping. The time has come to make a change," she told The Jerusalem Post. According to Shaked, murderers need to die in prison and not be freed,

Notice that the placards put up against terrorism and negotiating are not "hashtagged?" The Israelis who live in daily fear of such barbaric actions against any of their citizens know that they can in no way way embolden the animals at their gates. Our current pResident supports terrorist actions, sadly.

The headline should say "The left steadfast in its support to release terrorists."

I this an attempt to make the release of terrorists into a political issue? It is far more important than politics.

Authorities rescued 168 children and arrested 281 alleged pimps in cities across the US in a week-long child sex-trafficking sting, the FBI has said. "Our children are not for sale," FBI director James Comey said, announcing the results of what the bureau dubbed Operation Cross Country. About 400 law enforcement agencies across more than 100 cities assisted in the haul, he said. Some of the children had been "sold" online, FBI officials said. "These are not faraway kids in faraway lands," Mr Comey said. "These are America´s children. "This is not our first operation, and it will not be our last."

Obama Lining Up ISIS Targets
and Keeps ´Prerogative´ To Strike

President Obama is lining up ISIS targets in Iraq and may launch an attack on the militant Islamic militia that is threatening Baghdad even if he does not get an agreement with the Iraqi regime, Secretary of State John Kerry said today. Speaking in Baghdad after meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and other political leaders, Kerry said Obama is "each day" gaining more certainty of the targets he would strike if the United States decided on its own to take military action. "He has reserved the right to himself, as he should, to make a decision at any point in time if he deems it necessary strategically," Kerry said.

McAllen, TX - The U.S. government plans to turn an empty 55,000-square foot warehouse in South Texas into a processing facility for unaccompanied children who have entered the country illegally, according to construction permits obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request Monday. The permits reveal plans for four fence-enclosed pods inside a corrugated steel warehouse in McAllen that could eventually accommodate about 1,000 children. (Snip) More than 52,000 unaccompanied minors have been arrested since October after entering the United States illegally, a 99 percent increase over the same period a year

An 8.0 magnitude earthquake was recorded in the Aleutian Arc of islands between Russia and Alaska at 4:53:10 PM EST (11:53 local time) June 23. The quake resulted in a tsunami warning for the coastal regions of Alaska, and potentially along other US and Canadian Pacific coasts. We will update as we know more. What was originally a 7.1 magnitude earthquake was upgraded to an 8.0. The tsunami watch alert from NOAA says there could be "widespread and dangerous coastal flooding accompanied by powerful currents.... may continue for many hours after tsunami arrival." It also notes that "The first wave may not be the largest."

Fox’s Shep Smith Accuses Greenwald

Glenn Greenwald joined Fox News’ Shepard Smith on the “Fox News Deck” Monday afternoon to promote his new book and tease some new revelations to come out of Edward Snowden’s NSA leaks. But while he was there, things got tense with Smith confronted him about some comments he made Friday night when he was a guest on Real Time with Bill Maher about ISIS in Iraq. “You said something to the effect of, who is worse really, them [ISIS] or in essence, the Americans who invaded or would invade?” Smith said. “You equated our forces to terrorists.” “Yeah, that’s not actually what happened,” Greenwald replied.

Glenn Greenwald is set to disclose new documents revealing which kinds of citizens are targeted by National Security Agency surveillance, he said Monday. In an interview with MSNBC´s Ronan Farrow, Greenwald cited a "very imminent" report "on the question of what kinds of citizens are being targeted by the NSA." Greenwald said he considered the report "the most important in the archive" of documents given to him by Edward Snowden. Greenwald has said in previous interviews that Snowden´s documents include a list of the people the U.S. government has been targeting.

The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), the secretive agency that launches and runs the nation´s spy satellite system, is looking at technology developed by the video game industry to help it improve how it gathers and analyzes intelligence data, according to a research proposal released Monday. The NRO wants to tap into the video game industry´s "innovative algorithms" and "enhanced visualization techniques," the proposal said. The NRO works with the National Security Agency and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency to provide data to be analyzed to track weapons of mass destruction and potential terrorists,

Wendy Davis, the Texas Democrat who made national headlines with her staunch opposition to pro-life legislation brought by Republicans, has seen her star power fade a bit in recent months, as party colleagues say not so quietly: She doesn’t have a chance at all to win the governor seat. National Democrats in particular are dismissing her chances, Politico reported. Recent poll numbers show she’s been trailing her Republican contender — Attorney General Greg Abbott — by an average of 12 percentage points over the past few months. “We’re hopeful in Texas, but we all understand that Democrats haven’t won Texas in a long time,”

Among the many political imperatives identified by the South Dakota Republican Party for 2014 this past weekend was impeaching President Obama for violating "his oath of office in numerous ways." The reasons given for wanting to impeach the president were the newly proposed regulations on power plants from the Environmental Protection Agency and the captive swap that led to Bowe Bergdahl´s return. Dr. Allen Unruh sponsored the resolution. He told the Argus Leader that he has a "thick book on impeachable offenses of the president." Not everyone at the convention agreed that impeachment was the best way to deal with their

Judge strikes down
Montana immigrant law

Helena, Mont. - A Montana judge struck down most of a 2012 voter-approved law requiring government officials to conduct immigration checks on anybody seeking services provided by the state — from unemployment benefits to crime-victim assistance. The law, which aims to deny government jobs and assistance to people in the U.S. illegally, required Montana agencies to check legal status when a person applied for any state service. If the person was not in the country legally, the agency must turn over the name to federal immigration officials. The ruling is the latest test of a law approved during a wave of immigration crackdowns nationwide.

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul is firing back at his party’s interventionist wing, saying those who supported the Iraq war “emboldened Iran,” while freeing President Barack Obama of blame for the current crisis in Iraq. (Snip) “And what’s going on now—I don’t blame on President Obama,” Paul said. “Has he really got the solution? Maybe there is no solution. But I do blame the Iraq War on the chaos that is in the Middle East. I also blame those who wer for the Iraq War for emboldening Iran. These are the same people now who are petrified of what Iran may become, and I understand some of their worry.”

At the end of the Civil War, but before the pernicious reach of Jim Crow undermined the Union Army’s battlefield victory, former slaves and free blacks found themselves in possession of a most precious right -- the right to vote. It didn’t matter if a man had been a war hero in the famed, all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment or a house servant in a Southern plantation. All that mattered was that he was a man. To say that this development didn’t sit well with the progressive-minded women of this country is an understatement.

By 10 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2012, when Hillary Clinton received a call from President Obama, she was one of the most thoroughly briefed officials in Washington on the unfolding disaster in Benghazi, Libya. (Snip) She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11. However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obama’s voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al?Qaeda on the run. If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.

I still think President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, even though for 14 years he allowed his literary agent to circulate a bio blurb stating he was born in Kenya, and even though for many years he attended a church where his pastor friend shouted such things as “God damn America!” I still think that he just pretended to be Kenyan to be cool, to sell books and, perhaps, to get a foreign student scholarship at those colleges from which he refuses to release his transcripts. He’s probably not actually Kenyan. But as I speculated

Hillary Clinton´s multimillion dollar fortune has caused some negative headlines during the media tour for the release of her new book "Hard Choices," which is widely seen as a prelude to a potential 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton responded to criticism of her wealth in an interview with the Guardian newspaper published Saturday night by suggesting Americans won´t be concerned about the more than $100 million her family has reportedly earned in recent years because they´re not "truly well off." "They don´t see me as part of the problem," Clinton said of Americans who are upset about income inequality, adding, "Because we

There are times that I have senior moments and forget certain names and events but after the recent Obama Iraq war implosion, I´m convinced most political pundits are suffering from them as well. What is unusual is that this revision of history is being committed by conservatives who should know better. Recent commentary by Glenn Beck, George Will and Charles Krauthammer indicate that they have significant memory lapses about why we went to war in Iraq. They now suggest that it was a wrong decision whereas my complaint is that we took too long to invade and oust Saddam Hussein.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed. The IRS signed a contract with Sonasoft, an email-archiving company based in San Jose, California, each year from 2005 to 2010. The company, which partners with Microsoft and counts The New York Times among its clients, claims in its company slogans that it provides “Email Archiving Done Right” and “Point-Click Recovery.” Sonasoft in 2009 tweeted, “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose

All the time I was growing up in Atlanta, the face of Robert E. Lee was taking shape on the side of an enormous granite mountain just outside town. He loomed like a god above us, as much a presence as any deity, and God knows he was accepted as such. It was only much later that I began to question his sanctity, and then to hate what he stood for. When I was in elementary school, the face of Lee on Stone Mountain was a rough-cut thing, weathering and wasting as the generation that began it in 1912—a generation

The decision this past week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to rescind federal trademark protections for the Redskins may ultimately tip the balance in the controversy over the 80-year-old name of Washington’s football team. If so, that would be a shame. Not because there’s insufficient reason to consider the name “disparaging to Native Americans,” as the patent office determined. Many of us recoil at the reference to skin color as a team identity. The problem is that the Redskins case is just the latest example of a federal agency going beyond its brief to inappropriately insert itself in

US Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Iraq´s capital, Baghdad as Sunni insurgents expand their control of towns across north-western Iraq. In Egypt on Sunday, Mr Kerry warned that Sunni militants Isis´ "ideology of violence and repression is a threat not only to Iraq but to the entire region". On Sunday rebels--spearheaded by Isis militants--captured border crossings to Syria and Jordan. The strategically important airport in the northern Tal Afar has also fallen. The town controls the main road from the Syrian border to Mosul, Iraq´s second biggest city, which was captured by the rebels two weeks ago.

With much of the Obama administration´s foreign policy in tatters, John Kerry is clear on at least one goal he hopes to achieve by the end of his time as secretary of state: having lesbian, bisexual, and transgender ambassadors representing the United States. In remarks to a GLIFAA (formerly Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies) Pride event in the Ben Franklin Room at the State Department, the secretary ran through a litany of accomplishments by the Obama administration that benefit the "LGBT/gay community." During his speech, Kerry said that, if confirmed, Ted Osius (nominated by President Obama for the

A hundred years ago next week, in the small Balkan city of Sarajevo, Serbian nationalists murdered the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary and his wife. People were shocked but not particularly worried. Sadly, there had been many political assassinations in previous years—the king of Italy, two Spanish prime ministers, the Russian czar, President William McKinley. None had led to a major crisis. Yet just as a pebble can start a landslide, this killing set off a series of events that, in five weeks, led Europe into a general war.The U.S. under President Woodrow Wilson intended to stay out of

The least loved institution in America today is the U.S. Senate, and one of the reasons it is reviled is a zero-sum approach to women´s medical care. It´s time we changed that and adopt modern policies that make sense instead of using women´s medical issues as an election-year power play. One of the most rational ways for Washington to break this gridlock is to approve oral contraception for over-the-counter purchases by adults. Since "the pill" was first approved 44 years ago, it´s been one of the most proven and tested pharmaceuticals of our time. It is safe, reliable, effective, and presents
