Sen. Robert Menendez seeks probe of
alleged Cuban plot to smear him

Washington Post, by Carol D. Leonnig and *

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/8/2014 1:17:23 PM

Sen. Robert Menendez is asking the Justice Department to pursue evidence obtained by U.S. investigators that the Cuban government concocted an elaborate plot to smear him with allegations that he cavorted with underage prostitutes, according to people familiar with the discussions. In a letter sent to Justice Department officials, the senator’s attorney asserts that the plot was timed to derail the ­political rise of Menendez (D-N.J.), one of Washington’s most ardent critics of the Castro regime. At the time, Menendez was running for reelection and was preparing to assume the powerful chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. According to

Any Senator who lunches regularly with the heads of La Raza should be probed.

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-Mexico) needs to visit Cuba and stay there. Why would Cuba smear him, they love his Marxist politics.

Civilization versus barbarism
Washington Times, by Scott S.Powell    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/11/2014 12:28:08 PM     Post Reply
Recently, Pope Francis declared that “the persecution of Christians today is even greater than in the first centuries of the church, and there are more Christian martyrs today than in that era.” The slaughter of as many as 500,000 Christians in South Sudan since 2011 may not have received the attention it deserved. However, now the religious cleansing of Christians in Iraq resulting from Islamic jihadists’ conquest of lands Christians had called home since the first centuries A.D. cannot be ignored. In a region where Christians and Muslims had previously lived in relative peace side by side for centuries, the past 10

Iraq: Yazidi children rescued from Mount
Sinjar by Iraqi and Kurdish forces
Telegraph U.K., by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/11/2014 7:44:21 AM     Post Reply
Footage has emerged of Iraqi and Kurdish forces rescuing children from Mount Sinjar in Iraq after they had fled militants from the Islamic State group. The video provider, Steven Nabil, had direct contact with the source of the footage, ´AJK´, who supplied the material on condition that they remain anonymous. The children were flown from Sinjar mountain, where a helicopter had been delivering aid to thousands of minority Yazidis who have been stranded on a scorching mountaintop since the Islamic militants seized Sinjar, near the Syrian border, last week. They were then taken to Zakho in the self-declared autonomous Iraqi Kurdish region.

On the dry mountain, the Yazidis fight with the goats for the remaining water. In the distance, the lights of Islamic State checkpoints loom menacingly. On Sunday, those stuck behind Islamic State lines began reporting the group´s latest slaughter: hundreds of members of their arcane but colourful sect massacred for refusing to convert to Islam. On the mountain, the rumours from their relatives only added to the sense of panic and despair. One man, the only news reporter on Mount Sinjar, told me that jihadists had stormed through his village, killing every adult, healthy male. Others talked of hundreds of women being

The terror group President Barack Obama threatened to strike in Iraq Thursday evening is itself threatening to strike the American homeland. “I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,” Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the terror group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), told VICE Media in a video interview posted online Thursday. “Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq.” “We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” he added. The

A 4-year-old Indonesian girl who had been swept from her parents´ grasp during the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami has apparently been found alive and reunited with her family. Raudhatul Jannah, now 14 years old, was miraculously spotted by her uncle in June after she was long given up for dead by her heartbroken parents following the Dec. 26, 2004, catastrophe, reported AFP. "God has given us a miracle," her overjoyed mother, Jamaliah, told the news agency from her home in Meulaboh, the former capital of West Aceh Regency.

War Crimes in Gaza?
Weekly Standard, by Gabriel Schoenfeld    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/8/2014 7:43:34 AM     Post Reply
Condemnation of Israel for its conduct of Operation Protective Edge in Gaza continues unabated. The chief accusation, heard time and again, is that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have either been cavalier about civilian casualties or are intentionally inflicting them. Israel and its defenders, for their part, have been at pains to point out the great lengths the IDF has gone to avoid injuring civilians, while at the same time noting the innumerable ways in which Hamas has violated the laws of war. The debate over these matters has been almost as intense as the fighting itself. All too often,

Exiting The View co-host Jenny McCarthy said goodbye to the show today with Whoopi Goldberg noticeably MIA — that’s because, while the episode was in progress, Goldberg was over on the set of The Chew, chemistry testing a crop of contenders to replace McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd on the show next season.

After D.C. Councilman and former crack-smoking Mayor Marion Barry was involved in a car crash, reporters began delving into Barry’s parking tickets on the DMV website and discovered $2,824 in unpaid parking and speeding tickets. When FOX reporter Emily Miller cornered Barry to ask him about some of these tickets, Barry did not respond well to questioning, berating the young reporter and telling her she should find something else to do. Barry asked Miller how long she had been reporting, and, upon hearing that she had started at FOX in April, began to lecture her: “In this town we decide what’s important

ERUSALEM—Israel is seeking a “robust” and complete disarmament of Hamas in the Gaza Strip in order to ensure that there is no resumption in hostilities, according to a senior Israeli Foreign Ministry official who briefed the Washington Free Beacon on upcoming Egyptian-brokered ceasefire talks between the terror group and Israeli government. However, Hamas is already making untenable demands on the Jewish state that will not be met under any circumstances, according to the senior Israeli official, who agreed to discuss the nascent talks on condition of anonymity. The official spoke to a group of pastors in Israel on a trip organized by

MSNBC reporter Chris Jansing claimed President Barack Obama’s keen interest in this week’s African leadership summit stems from the fact that “he’s from Kenya” — an assertion that took over ten minutes for her to reverse. Jansing spoke to MSNBC’s Joy Reid about the ongoing meeting of American and African leaders in Washington D.C. “The White House is clearly, I would assume, hoping this will be part of the president’s legacy, given his background,” Reid said. “Yeah, the fact that he’s from Kenya,” Jansing replied breezily. “And the fact that when he was elected there were expectations on the African continent that

The decision by Sen.

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.

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

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.

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.

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."

It didn´t take long for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to embrace amnesty again. As soon as he won his Senate primary election against conservative Joe Carr, Alexander said it was "embarrassing" that Republicans have not yet passed a bill. Never mind that Alexander spent nearly his entire primary campaign trying to convince voters that he was against "amnesty" and would never dare to embrace it before the primary election. “I don’t know how it will affect our politics in the near term," Alexander told Politico of a comprehensive immigration bill. “I think it’s embarrassing for us not to deal with the problem, and
