Obama sells Hellfire:
White House hopes to send
4K missiles to Iraq for ISIL fight

Washington Times, by Douglas Ernst

Original Article

Posted By:EagleEye, 7/2/2014 1:35:54 PM

The Obama administration is hoping that 4,000 Hellfire missiles might turn the tide in Iraq as the Middle Eastern nation takes on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Officials were told by the State Department last week that the Obama administration is trying to complete the sale with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s Shiite-led government. Members of the Senate and House foreign relations committees will conduct a review of the planned sale. The process can take up to 40 days, Bloomberg News reported Wednesday. “As a matter of policy, we decline to comment on cases that have not been formally notified to Congress,”

Comments:
The way that 0bama´s own puppethead LSM is reporting the "successes" of ISIL, who´s hands do you think these Hellfire missiles might eventually end up in? And, then used to down a landing passenger aircraft by a suicide attack at an airport? Congress, say NO to any of our weapons systems in Iraq.

1) Congress hasn´t been notified yet, but Obama is already bragging about his strategy
2) Does Iraq have an air force still?
3) Iran has drones copied from a US drone that went astray

What could possibly go wrong? s/o

After throwing away a victory in Iraq (which George W. Bush´s administration had pacified after tremendous sacrifices), Obama now blames the disaster that is the Middle East on his predecessor. Now that it´s gotten so bad that Obama can´t blame the situation away, he deigns to send missiles to the Iraqi government so they can take care of the problem that he alone created. Just press a button and - Poof! - those mean old terrorists go away, just like that!

This stunt reminds me of Bill Clinton, the Cruise missile, and the aspirin factory. Feckless and delusional.

So what happens when those missiles are used on our only true ally in the Middle East? He´s in all likelihood shipping them over so that they can be stolen and then turned on the Israelis.

A month after Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America targeted Target for letting North Texas open-carriers stroll through the toy section with Oreos and AKs, the Big Box has finally released a statement asking shoppers to leave their long guns at home. This morning interim CEO John Mulligan wrote on the company’s blog that the company’s leadership has been wrestling with the “complex issue” for several weeks. And in the end, he writes, the team decided to join Chipotle, Chili’s, Starbucks and other companies by asking folks to shop without displaying their weapons.

Boston - He insists he’s not running for president a third time, but Mitt Romney is campaigning again in New Hampshire. The former Republican presidential nominee is set to endorse Senate candidate Scott Brown on Wednesday, campaigning publicly in New Hampshire for the first time since the early hours of Election Day 2012 as he continues a larger effort to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. The day is supposed to be focused on Brown’s quest to defeat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen this fall. But Romney’s return to the state where he began and ended his last presidential campaign looms over the Senate

Obama seeks change to law
that protects immigrant kids

Posted By: EagleEye- 7/2/2014 12:52:00 PM     Post Reply
As part of an effort to stem the flood of children caught trying to cross the nation´s southwest border, President Obama is trying to change a 2008 law that dictates how the federal government handles those immigrant children in order to speed up their deportations. (Snip) The 2008 law, which passed both chambers of Congress by unanimous consent and was signed into law by President George W. Bush, dictates exactly how children caught crossing the border without their parents must be treated. For children coming from "contiguous countries" – in other words, Mexico and Canada – a Border Patrol officer has the authority

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has reportedly been charged with corruption and influence peddling after being held for questioning for 15 hours. Mr. Sarkozy was held at Nanterre, just outside of Paris, where he was questioned on allegations that he violated campaign finance laws and abused his power to manipulate the legal system. Authorities officially charged him, his lawyer and a senior magistrate early Wednesday morning, according to several news outlets. Prosecutors accused Mr. Sarkozy of appointing a magistrate in Monaco, Gilbert Azibert, to a senior judicial position in exchange for under-the-table information regarding campaign finance probes against him.

Israel’s present and future security
challenges in the field of counter-terrorism

Israel has been forced to cope with waves of terrorism of various types and intensities since its founding and to this day. These waves of terrorism are carried out by various terrorist organizations (Palestinian and Shi’ite) in various arenas (internal, along the borders, overseas) and using various methods (suicide attacks, explosive devices, kidnappings and negotiations, shootings and more). In the decade since the end of the second Intifada, and since the death of Yasser Arafat and his replacement by Abu Mazen, there has been a significant lull in the number of terrorist attacks on Israeli soil, the wave of suicide attacks has subsided

Since the fall of Mosul to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) organization, the media has been disseminating an apocalyptic portrayal of the situation. According to the reports, the organization will soon be conquering Baghdad and indeed all of Iraq. Likewise, there are assessments that also in Jordan, Kuwait and other Gulf nations,there is fear of suffering a similar fate from the powerful organization. Without underestimating the threat potential of the organization in light of its local achievements and murderous activities, it is worth understanding the wider context in which it has attained its achievements and strength.

Authorities say emergency room patients at two hospitals in Rhode Island may have been exposed to a patient with measles. According to the Associated Press, people may have been exposed to the infectious disease at Rhode Island Hospital and Roger Williams Medical Center, both located in Providence, after a patient exhibiting “fever, nausea and aches” visited the hospitals’ emergency rooms last Sunday.

The second potential exposure occurred between 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. at Roger Williams Medical Center, when the patient turned up

   

 



 
Life imitates art: ‘Hunger Games’ salute

Life is imitating art in Thailand — unfortunately for protesters, it’s the illegal three-fingered salute from the “Hunger Games” books and film series. After Thailand’s military council took power in a coup on May 22, it began cracking down on dissent in unique ways. It became illegal to read George Orwell’s “1984” in public or to wear shirts that say “Peace Please.” Now, the salute from “The Hunger Games” is off-limits, Business Insider reported Friday. Plainclothes cops are reportedly patrolling Bangkok for individuals who break such laws and then arrest them. “In many cases, their heads are covered with black plastic bags so they won’t

Brownsville, TX - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Saturday during a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border that she holds little hope that Congress will pass comprehensive immigration reform this year. (Snip) ‘‘A few days ago I would have been more optimistic about comprehensive immigration reform,’’ Pelosi said. ‘‘I thought that we had been finding a way because we have been very patient and respectful of (Speaker of the House John Boehner) trying to do it one way or another. I don’t think he gives us much reason to be hopeful now, but we never give up. There’s still the month of July.’’

Nairobi - The United Nations is determined to help Kenya and other countries in Africa fight "terrorism" following a series of deadly attacks, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Saturday. Speaking in the capital Nairobi, he said he had talked with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta "at length" about how the UN and Kenyan government can work together in countering "heinous" attacks. (Snip) Kenya has been the scene of a series of attacks attributed to the Somali Al-Qaeda-linked group Shebab and their supporters since Kenya sent troops over the border to help fight the group in 2011.

According to the Associated Press, Cochran earned 50.8 percent of the vote, while McDaniel peaked with 49.2 percent.

At Arizona State University, female students can earn extra credit by agreeing to not shave their armpits and legs for ten weeks. Breanne Fahs, a professor of women and gender studies, has made the special offer to her students as a way to encourage them to challenge social norms. “There’s no better way to learn about societal norms than to violate them and see how people react,” she told ASU News. “There’s really no reason why the choice to shave, or not, should be a big deal.

Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.” Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

The book, in this midterm election year, is a strong rebuttal of the progressive ideology behind President Obama’s policies, which have been supported by Costco co-founder and director Jim Sinegal, a major Democrat donor and a speaker at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that nominated the president.

President Obama evidently has decided not to put a human face on the crisis unfolding at the U.S. southern border—not even his own. The White House said over and over again Monday that Obama will not travel to the border with Mexico despite flying to Texas this week to raise money for Democratic candidates there. It´s certainly in part a political decision, one meant to avoid taking ownership of a difficult issue on which the White House would prefer to share blame. (Snip) In other words, if Obama goes goes to the border, he owns the problem. If he doesn't, he's blasted for a lack of leadership.
