Attorney General Eric Holder
Warns of Syria Terror Threat

NBC News, by Pete Willams

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/8/2014 10:20:47 AM

Attorney General Eric Holder urged European countries Tuesday to become more aggressive in countering the threat of Westerners who receive training from terrorists in Syria. "This is a global crisis in need of a global solution," Holder said. "The Syrian conflict has turned that region into a cradle of violent extremism. But the world cannot simply sit back and let it become a training ground from which our nationals can return and launch attacks." He warned that Western democracies cannot be passive. "If we wait for our nations´ citizens to travel to Syria, to become radicalized, and to return home,

From the man who was supposedly in charge of closing Gitmo and thinks dealing with acts of war against U.S. interests on foreign soil by Islamic savages are best handled in our domestic courts....

Obama and Holder have turned the U.S. government into a center of extremism. Can the Europeans help arrest and prosecute these criminals?

Due to his pathetic anti-American and racist performance as AG, Holder will be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life after he gets booted out of office. Maybe he and barry will have each other´s back during their retirement. They certainly deserve each other.

Holder´s wording is noteworthy, at least as it´s reported by his media mouthpiece: "Syria terror threat."

Most readers will associate the Syrian government with the terror threat, not the islamic terrorists his administration encouraged and equipped.

Evidently they´re expecting blow-back and preemptively deflecting blame. Clearly, the threat is real.

ANCHORAGE — A polar bear surprised a mother and daughter in a tent on Alaska´s Barter Island, and biologists say such encounters likely will increase with the ongoing loss of sea ice from climate warming. Marie Rexford, 51, and her 81-year-old mother, Betty Brower, were at a fish camp outside the Inupiat village of Kaktovik, the Alaska Dispatch News reported Tuesday. Rexford was pulling on her socks last week when she looked over her shoulder and saw the outline of a paw pressed against the canvas tent. The paw belonged to a polar bear that was trying to push inside,

Concerned that children will be exposed to health risks and protesters, a Lehighton youth soccer team has dropped out of a tournament hosted by KidsPeace this weekend. The Carbon United Soccer Club played in the KidsPeace Soccer Invitational for the last eight years but the U10 team, the Outkasts, backed out this year. Parents and coaches felt uneasy with recent revelations that the nonprofit organization houses children who entered this country illegally, many of whom are Central American. For more than a year, KidsPeace has sheltered children in coordination with the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement. About 80 protesters held a rally

Kim Jong-un runs one of the world’s most secretive societies - so secret that despite it covering 47,000 sq miles, you can’t even see it from space. This is the extraordinary image of North Korea almost completely in the dark, apart from a small amount of light coming from its capital city Pyongyang. Lights can clearly be seen in its surrounding countries of Russia, China and South Korea - where the capital Seoul just 35 miles from the border.

Hillary Clinton is slipping against her potential Republican rivals in the 2016 presidential race, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll released Thursday afternoon. Clinton, the Democratic front-runner in the still far-away contest, leads her opponents by noticeably smaller margins than she held in April, when the poll was last conducted. Against New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), for example, the McClatchy-Marist poll found Clinton dropped 5% since April and 15% since February. She now leads Christie by just 47% to 41%. The story is the same for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R). In April, Clinton led Bush by a

The Pentagon might not have boots on the ground in Ferguson, Mo., where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot by police on Saturday, but it does have wheels on the street. Michelle McCaskill, media relations chief at the Defense Logistics Agency, confirms that the Ferguson Police Department is part of a federal program called 1033 that distributes hundreds of millions of dollars of surplus military equipment to civilian police forces across the United States. The materials range from small items such as pistols and automatic rifles to heavy armored vehicles such as the MRAPs used in Afghanistan and Iraq. "In 2013 alone, $449,309,003.71

During her book tour, the question was whether Hillary “We Were Dead Broke” Clinton had become disconnected from ordinary Americans. Now the question is whether she is disconnected from all principles, not to mention the details of her own biography. The running gag with Clinton used to be about her ever-changing hairstyles. Those are nothing compared with the bobs and weaves she has undertaken since her presidential-killing vote to authorize war in Iraq. Let’s see if we can trace things from the start of Clinton’s war

INDIANAPOLIS - A federal judge has ruled Indiana and nearly 40 state school districts can sue the Internal Revenue Service over rules it imposed to implement the federal health care overhaul. The judge on Tuesday declined an IRS request to dismiss the 2013 lawsuit by 39 districts. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis contends the federal health care law doesn’t allow financial penalties in states that didn’t create their own online insurance marketplaces. Such states instead ceded that task to the federal government. The lawsuit asks the federal court to issue an injunction blocking the IRS

He’s going to do exactly what he wants to do, and he’s going to be stubborn about it. He is politically, he is either politically tone deaf or he just doesn’t give a damn.

President Obama won´t make any major announcements on immigration reform during his secretive mid-vacation trip back to Washington next week, the White House said Wednesday. The president is expected to return to the White House on Sunday, but officials won´t say why Obama is taking the unusual, and costly, trip back to Washington. He´s expected to return to Martha´s Vineyard, where he´s been vacationing, on Tuesday. Speculation has circled around whether Obama might make an announcement of executive actions he´s taking on immigration reform, or a surprise visit from a foreign leader.

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. That word comes from the attorney for Dorian Johnson, speaking to MSNBC. Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

This is ridiculous. AUSTIN (KXAN) – A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Perry wanted Lehmberg to resign because she had been busted for drunk driving. It’s not good to have a drunk driver, captured on camera abusing the officers who arrested her, heading up the Public Integrity Unit. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.

Instead of being handled as a military-to-military matter, each case is now subject to review—slowing the approval process and signaling to Israel that military assistance once taken for granted is now under closer scrutiny.

The scandal that erupted Friday night involved millions of dollars, statehouse power plays—oh yeah, and alcohol, police, and masks. Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted Friday on charges of abuse of power—a first degree felony—and coercion—a third degree felony. The charges stem from a 2013 scandal that has been quietly rumbling in the Lone Star State as Perry has been floated as a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2016. This is a complex case, which might be why it has not made national headlines the way other recent, state-level scandals (like Bridgegate, in New Jersey) have. Below, I have outlined

The U.S. Army band, “Pershing’s Own,” played softly as the funeral procession made its way down the long hill past the rows of simple white gravestones to bring General Greene to his final resting place. The graveside service began with a few words, followed by a 13-gun salute. The major general’s widow, Dr. Susan Myers, was seated in the front row. To her right

Hollywood director and liberal activist Rob Reiner told talk-show host Larry King that the Tea Party is like the terrorist group Hamas, because apparently both groups are extreme and cannot be negotiated with, and the only solution is to make them go away or “eliminate” them. “[Y]ou can’t negotiate with that, you have to say either Hamas goes away and the Palestinian authority takes over all that region and deal with some kind of honest broker here, and create the two-state solution,” said Reiner. Drawing a parallel with the Tea Party, he said, “anytime you’re dealing with an extreme group,
