Israel claims to have foiled
amphibious Palestinian assault

Guardian (U.K.), by Orlando Crowcroft

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/9/2014 8:41:39 AM

Israel claims to have foiled an audacious amphibious assault when Palestinian militants emerged from the sea north of Gaza. In footage of the incident released by the Israeli military, two figures are seen walking out of the surf on an Israeli beach north of Gaza near Zikim. At least four militants are then seen running over sand dunes apparently carrying weapons before being targeted and "neutralised" by Israeli missiles. The incident is being seen as evidence of the new capabilities of Islamic militants in Gaza, whose rockets in the past 24 hours have gone further than ever before – in one case

Hamas´ rockets are getting "better"--in one case landing in the city of Hadera, more than 60 miles (100km) from Gaza.

Maybe a "clandestine unit" could take advantage of the errant Hamas rockets getting too close to The Dome of The Rock, and knock out a couple of load bearing walls of that mosque. Then, the "authorities" could deny the Muslims a permit to rebuild at that location, you know "the ground is no longer stable enough for that large a building."

Flight Risks
National Journal, by Shane Goldmacher    Original Article

Three days after Christmas last year, 13 members of Congress boarded planes across the United States bound for Morocco. Their all-expenses-paid trip lasted a week, and included visits to the cities of Marrakech, Rabat, and Casablanca. But much of what the lawmakers did while abroad—where they stayed, where they dined, what tourist sites they may have visited, and even how much the jaunt cost—remains a secret. That´s because the trip was underwritten by the Moroccan government, making it exempt from the tightened travel reforms enacted seven years ago in the wake of the Jack Abramoff influence-peddling scandal.

Obama´s unnecessary, unpromising war
Washington Examiner, by Steve Chapman    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 9/15/2014 7:59:14 AM     Post Reply
President Obama said Wednesday night the United States is going to war "to degrade and ultimately destroy" the group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. So right off you know one thing we will not do: destroy it. The only thing more reliable than the habit of American presidents of starting wars is the inability of wartime presidents to achieve their goals. President George W. Bush went into Afghanistan pledging to wipe out al Qaeda and the Taliban. He invaded Iraq to eliminate Saddam Hussein´s weapons of mass destruction, while promising that the creation of "free Iraq" would be

Obama forced by events to reverse

Iraq, immigration, inversion. On all three of the issues referred to, President Obama finds himself forced by events to do something he dislikes — and he´s in trouble with much of his Democratic Party base for doing so. Obama seemed ill at ease before the camera and teleprompter on the evening of Sept. 10. Sending troops into Iraq and Syria is probably the last thing he expected to do when he set out running for president in 2007. He still insists that he will send in “no ground troops,” though it appears that hundreds of U.S. military personnel are literally on the

Mr. President, everybody is asking in this country, are we or are we not at war?” a reporter asked Harry Truman at a White House press conference on June 29, 1950. It was a reasonable question: two days earlier, in response to a swift, unexpected advance of North Korean troops, Truman had ordered American forces to South Korea. In keeping with the rules of the time, the reporters asked the President for permission to print his answer verbatim. “The Chief Executive responded that he would allow the news men to use in quotes: ‘We are not at war,’ ” the

With top Commerce Department officials headed to Capitol Hill Friday to answer allegations about fraudulent practices by patent examiners, the Washington Post this week obtained copies of the whistleblower complaints that set in motion a series of investigations of the patent office. Four whistleblowers, at least two of them managers, submitted lengthy, detailed accounts to an anonymous hotline set up by the Commerce inspector general’s office in 2012. The accounts described widespread time and attendance fraud by examiners at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Has the “War on Women”
Jumped the Shark?
Townhall, by Charlotte Hays    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 9/12/2014 3:33:13 PM     Post Reply
The “war on women” was always a cynical ploy by Democrats, aimed solely at getting votes from women rather than creating an economy in which we can flourish. But it worked. President Obama is in the midst of his disastrous second term largely because women voted for him in 2012 by an eleven point margin. But there are clear indications that the “war on women” is not working in 2014. A case in point is Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s recent attack on Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

Over the past few weeks, but more specifically since President Obama spoke to the country Wednesday evening about how he will "degrade and destroy" ISIS, Americans are asking one question: Are we at war with these people? Up until now, President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have said the answer is no. Today White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said while the United States isn´t at war with ISIS, the United States is at war with the terror army in the same way we´re at war with al Qaeda.

The investigation into Joan Rivers´s death is far from over — but there´s certainly movement in the ranks. Dr. Lawrence Cohen, the medical director at Yorkville Endoscopy, where Joan Rivers was having her procedure and went into cardiac arrest, was asked by the board to step down from his post and accepted, The Insider With Yahoo confirmed on Friday. "Dr. Cohen is not currently performing procedures at Yorkville Endoscopy; nor is he currently serving as medical director," a spokesperson for Yorkville Endoscopy said.

Our media overlords love to mainstream leftwing fanaticism. 9/11 Trutherism is no exception.

During his speech last night, President Obama declared, “ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.” It is certainly true that the vast majority of the victims of ISIS, as the group is more commonly known, have been Muslim as have been the majority of victims of other radical Islamist movements, it is not the job of any president to decree what is and is not Islam; what is and is not Christianity; and what is and is not Judaism. For all practical purposes, religion is what

Judge: Pistorius did not
intentionally kill Steenkamp
CNN, by Richard Greene, Josh Levs,*    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 9/11/2014 8:34:04 AM     Post Reply
Pretoria, South Africa -- Oscar Pistorius cannot be found guilty of intentionally killing Reeva Steenkamp, the judge in his trial said Thursday. The judge has not issued a verdict, and the proceedings continue. Pistorius faces other possible verdicts, including culpable homicide. Under South African law, Pistorius will not be found guilty of murder. Evidence suggests that Pistorius genuinely believed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was still in the bedroom, and that the person in the bathroom was an intruder, although that is irrelevant to the case, Judge Thokozile Masipa said. Oscar Pistorius cries during the verdict in his murder trial in Pretoria, South Africa. Oscar

Initial reaction to President Obama´s speech on Wednesday night was, in large part, nonpartisan. But shortly after the speech, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and former Obama press secretary/newly minted CNN contributor Jay Carney used the occasion to work out some lingering tensions. The exchange on CNN included plenty of interrupting and accusations of false facts. We would encourage people to watch it.

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life.

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry. Take a look at what she wore for all that. A little too full for her figure? (Photographs).. A flattering

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

As news of this rally in support of Wilson spread across social media it wasn’t long before Baker’s attendance was noticed by those super tolerant liberals. Now a local New Black Panther adviser is threatening violence against Martin Baker. The Bell News reported: Mauricelm-Lei Millere is a Black Panther and New Black Panther Adviser who is assisting to organize the protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

Washington - Were it any other US president in recent memory, delivering a rousing White House address promising to "vanquish" the bloodthirsty militants of the Islamic State from the face of the earth would be dismissed as the "easy part". Recall Joe Biden, the vice president with half an eye on a run for the top job in 2016, promising to follow Isil "to the gates of hell" after the beheading of a second US journalist, and you get the picture of just how easy it can be. But as Mr Obama admitted last week with a faint whiff of
