Cairo - An Egyptian court has sentenced the Muslim Brotherhood leader, Mohamed Badie, and 36 other Islamists to life in prison, and confirmed death sentences for 10 others, most of them on the run. Badie – convicted of involvement in deadly protests – had already received death sentences in two other cases in a crackdown on Islamist opposition after last year´s military overthrow of Mohamed Morsi. Of the 10 defendants condemned to death last month in the same case, whose sentences were confirmed, an Islamic cleric has since been arrested. Another defendant was sentenced to three years. Egyptian courts have sparked international

Comments:
It´s only a "life" sentence till the next regime change on Terrorist inspired prison break. Expecting phone call from 0bama sending his condolences and possible "humanitarian" aid package through the "International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies" (ICRC). {wink-wink).

He tried sending McCain and Ms. Lindsie with McCain´s muslim sisterhood staff member to try to get Morsi re-established in the government after Gen. Sisi took over. Didn´t work out too well.

Sharyl Attkinson: We’ve ‘Gone Backwards’
Since Days of Woodward and Bernstein
Mediaite, by Evan McMurry    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/11/2014 4:24:23 PM     Post Reply
On This Week Not with George Stephanopoulos, former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkinson said that journalists today were more hindered, and politicians more emboldened, than they were in the days of Woodward and Bernstein. “I think that we’ve gone backwards since that time when we really felt empowered as journalists,” Attkinson said. “I’d like to think of what would happen today during a Nixon-type scandal. Nixon would basically refuse to turn over tapes to Congress, his aides would refuse to testify to Congress or would take the fifth or lie to Congress today. Woodward and Bernstein would be controversialized on

The New York Times announced Monday that longtime columnist Maureen Dowd will join the New York Times Magazine as a staff writer, part of an overhaul of the glossy Sunday feature spearheaded by former Texas Monthly editor Jake Silverstein. She will still write her weekly op-ed column, which is largely about how the presidency fails to be like in the movies. “Maureen is one of The Times’s signature writers. Period,” Silverstein said in a statement. “And as we work toward a redesign that will put new emphasis on stylish, long-form narratives, she’ll be a brilliant addition to our team. While I can’t disclose any specific

Hillary is a hypocrite because she has to be

The writer, ambassador and congresswoman Clare Booth Luce once told President John F. Kennedy, “A great man is one sentence.” The same would apply to a woman who aspires to be great, and Hillary Clinton knows what she wants her sentence to be: “She was the first female president.” Unfortunately, her sentence, written truthfully, would end like this: ” … And she was elected with money donated by rich men.” Women vote in greater numbers than men. They make most of the household financial decisions (and many of the most important other ones). But when it comes to voting with their pocketbooks, or their purses, the rich ones

Don´t miss Sunday´s
supermoon -- with meteors!

San Francisco - This weekend may prove eye-popping for sky watchers. Sunday night brings a supermoon, when the full moon coincides with the moon´s closest approach to the Earth during its elliptical orbit around us. The full moon will appear 14% bigger and 30% brighter than when it is at its farthest, says Ben Burress, an astronomer with the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland. The moon will be 190,000 miles from the Earth, 20% closer than its farthest point, when it is 240,000 miles away. "Supermoon" isn't an astronomical term. It became popular only in the past few years, according to the website EarthSky.com.

Taxpayer funds spared as judge tosses
lawsuit from Iraq war contractor KBR
Washington Times, by Jim McElhatton    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/11/2014 12:21:25 AM     Post Reply
A federal judge last week tossed out a complaint from wartime contractor KBR, in a case the Justice Department said could have ended up leaving taxpayers on the hook for ever-increasing costs from the war in Iraq. The more than yearlong dispute centered around how KBR should be paid as the contractor winds down the nearly $38 billion logistics contract used to support troops in Iraq. KBR wanted to continue billing the government on a cost-reimbursable basis, meaning the company gets paid costs plus a fee as the expenses are incurred. But Army officials want KBR to provide a fixed fee, meaning the company would

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Sunday he would keep all options open for the U.S. military to “stamp out” the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Speaking to reporters after a campaign stop for GOP House candidate Mariannette Miller-Meeks, Perry said the U.S. must do “whatever’s required to keep ISIS from continuing to be a clear and present danger” to America and its allies, including sending in American ground troops if needed. “The president historically has been late to action on a lot of these issues that have occurred in the Middle East in particular,” Perry said. “Our allies need to know that we’re going to be there for them.

There are few Republicans that Democrats hate more than Scott Walker. Two years ago, Democratic groups spent $20 million trying to recall the Wisconsin governor, unsuccessfully. He has since raised a staggering $19 million and seems untouchable. So how is Walker is in the race of his life against Democrat Mary Burke? (Snip) Enter Mary Burke. “She’s running a very disciplined campaign essentially saying: I’m not Scott Walker,” says Mordecai Lee, a University of Wisconsin Milwaukee political science professor. “She has really positioned herself as a no name moderate Democrat—fiscally conserve but socially liberal.”

Authorities said a Long Beach resident fatally shot a man early Sunday who was allegedly trying to burglarize his home. Police responded to a 911 call of a burglary in progress about 3 a.m. in the 2800 block of East 3rd Street. The caller said the suspected burglar was shot inside the house, said Sgt. Megan Zabel, a spokeswoman with the Long Beach Police Department. Paramedics declared the man dead at the scene, Zabel said. (Snip) In July, a Long Beach resident shot a woman, Andrea Miller, who broke into his home with a man. Miller’s accomplice, Gus Adams, was charged with murder in connection with her death.

Ken Cuccinelli, the former Virginia Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate is now the head of the Senate Conservatives Fund. On Breitbart News Saturday, Mr. Cuccinelli lamented about the primary debacle in Mississippi and how that set conservatives back, citing losses in Kansas and Tennessee. The Senate Conservatives Fund was one of the Washington groups that decided it was going to make a splash in the conservative movement this year. These groups anointed some really bad candidates and made some really questionable calls. In Kentucky, the Senate Conservatives Fund endorsed Matt Bevin against Mitch McConnell.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are making the most of their downtime in the Hamptons. The former U.S. President and his ex-Secretary of State wife were pictured this morning enjoying a stroll on the beach in Amagansett, where they are paying $100,000 to rent an $18million five-bedroom property for three weeks. The couple, who were accompanied by their dogs as well as a Secret Service agent, were dressed in very casual clothes, with President Clinton decked out in black SoulCycle shorts and green sneakers and his wife in a bright blue muumuu and slippers. Mrs Clinton, 66, kept her eyes shaded from the sun

French forces have bombed Islamist militant positions in northern Mali. Four or five bombs were dropped in the Esssakane region, west of the city of Timbuktu on Sunday morning, the BBC´s Alex Duval Smith in Mali reports. The UN has said al-Qaeda militants were active in the area. Last month Timbuktu airport came under rocket attack. France intervened in Mali in January last year to try to drive out al-Qaeda-linked groups, which had taken over the north of the country. Last month the French government said it was setting up a new military operation to stop the emergence of jihadist groups in the Sahel region of Africa.

The Guardian, one of Britain´s most influential daily newspapers, used its editorial on Friday to warn of the dangers of European anti-Semitism that has been fueled in recent weeks by the tumult in Israel and Gaza. Citing the numerous violent attacks against Jews, synagogues, and other institutions on the Continent in recent years, the newspaper condemned "the conflation of Jews and Israel" while denouncing those who would exploit their anger over Israeli policies toward the Palestinians by attacking Jews in the diaspora. "The controversy has gained extra heat because of the alarming increase in anti-Jewish racism," the Guardian wrote."

The decision by Sen. John Walsh (D-Mont.) not to seek election in November in the wake of a plagiarism scandal is the latest piece of good news for Republicans as they strive to take control of the Senate in less than three months. Walsh’s departure from the race came in the same week that two Republican senators — Pat Roberts in Kansas and Lamar Alexander in Tennessee — defeated tea party challengers in primary fights, ensuring that every GOP senator seeking reelection would be the party’s nominee. These past seven days typified the fates of the two parties this election

Barack Obama deliberately set out to lose the war in Iraq, and he did. He defied the advice of his joint chiefs of staff to secure America’s formidable military presence and keep 20,000 troops in country, and left Iraq to its own devices and the tender mercies of Iran. In doing so, he betrayed every American and Iraqi who gave his life to create a free Iraq and keep it out of the clutches of the terrorists. Iraq is now a war zone dominated by the terrorist forces of the Islamic State, whose rise Obama’s policies fostered. Both his secretaries

Rosie O’Donnell, the past and future co-host of The View, on Friday reaffirmed her support of the 9/11 truther conspiracy theory. When asked by this writer if she continues to reject the idea that Muslim terrorists flew planes into buildings, O’Donnell tweeted in response, “i still do not believe the official story.” [See below for a screen shot of the tweet.] O’Donnell left The View in 2007 after battling with conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

A terrifying jihadist group is conquering and butchering its way across big swaths of Iraq and Syria. Planes are falling out of the sky on what seems like a weekly basis. Civilians are being killed in massive numbers in the Israel-Gaza conflict. Others are falling prey to Ebola in West Africa. The world, in short, is falling apart. That’s how it feels, at least, to those of us who sit at a blessed remove from the death and destruction, but who are watching every bloody moment of it via cable news and social media. It raises an important question: In an

When he was running for re-election in 2012, President Barack Obama repeatedly took credit for ending the war in Iraq and bringing all U.S. troops home from that country. At the White House on Saturday, however, when talking about his decision to use military force against the al-Qaida-related ISIS terrorist group in Iraq, Obama said removing all U.S. troops from Iraq was not “my decision.” “You know I say what I mean and I mean what I say,” Obama said in Hollywood, Florida on Nov. 4, 2012. “I said I´d end the war in Iraq. I ended it.” That statement

A 40-year political career came to a close after Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie lost his bid for a second term in a stunning primary-election defeat by a fellow Democrat and state senator who defied party leadership to challenge the incumbent. A second intraparty fight for U.S. Senate was too close to call. State Sen. David Ige, once seen as an underdog, cruised to a decisive 35 percentage point win in Saturday´s primary after being dramatically outspent by Abercrombie, who also had high-profile endorsements including President Barack Obama. Ige said his win "proves that people power can be money power, especially in Hawaii."

An Isis commander at a terrorist training camp north of Baghdad accidentally detonated a belt packed with explosives during a demonstration in front of a group militants on Monday, killing himself and 21 nearby trainees. The accident was a source of dark humour for locals, with suicide attacks in public spaces having become an almost daily occurrence in Iraq. A bomber struck a falafel shop near the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad last week, and when told of the bungled training demonstration by the New York Times, Raad Hashim, who works at a liquor store near the site of

Frank Maloney, the former boxing promoter who guided Lennox Lewis to the world heavyweight title, is now living as a woman and plans to undergo a sex change. The 61-year-old told a tabloid newspaper she now lives as a woman called Kellie. Maloney, a twice married father-of-three, has been living as a female for more than a year and has begun hormone therapy, the Sunday Mirror reported. “I wasn´t born into the right body, I have always known I was a woman.

Not every Yazidi resident in northern Iraq escaped before the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, captured towns in the region. The terrorist group told the people to convert to Islam or die, killed 500 of them, buried some alive, and took hundreds of girls as slaves. "We have striking evidence obtained from Yazidis fleeing Sinjar and some who escaped death, and also crime scene images that show indisputably that the gangs of the Islamic State have executed at least 500 Yazidis after seizing Sinjar," said human rights minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani.

As we reported earlier, the community in Ferguson, Missouri, was outraged after an unarmed teenager was shot and killed by police. Protests reached a crescendo Sunday night that broke into violence, looting, and reports of gun shots. Police responded with tear gas, and have arrested many, but for many hours into the evening, several stores were left to the mercy of opportunistic looters. Social media caught much of the chaos: (videos, photos)
