Exclusive: Marine Corps transfers
whistleblower who questioned top general

Washington Post, by Dan Lamothe

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 7/14/2014 12:26:02 PM

A Marine Corps officer who accused the service’s top general and other members of his staff of wrongdoing last year in an inspector general complaint has been transferred to a new base in southeastern Virginia, nine months after he was removed from his job as a lawyer in Quantico, Va. Maj. James Weirick began a new assignment in Suffolk, Va., with the Pentagon’s Joint Staff early in July, said his lawyer and military officials. He will serve there in Joint Force Development, said Richard Osial, a Joint Staff spokesman. The organization oversees training to get the services and their allies

Sounds like the Commandant should be the referred to mental health since he conviently seems to have memory problems. Maybe he is unfit to lead.

The marines should not have been charged with anything for something so minor as using the rest room. This is all political hogwash.

A foreign policy conducted

See, kids, this is why you don’t do drugs. And this is why you will always eventually regret voting for somebody who boasted of all the coke and dope he did while smoldering about his absentee father.President Choom Gang has demilitarized our military. He sends the Department of Health and Human Services to the Mexican border to welcome and take care of tens of thousands of illegal children streaming across. And now he wants to deploy American troops into West Africa to combat the Ebola virus. Boy, is this confusing. Mr. President, with all due respect: Are you still smoking dope? Just when

If you know who Eric Holder

Attorney General Eric Holder is one of President Obama´s best-known and longest-serving cabinet members. Most recently, he led the administration´s response to the racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri following the Michael Brown killing, launching multiple Justice Department investigations into the police department there. If the results of a new Wall Street Journal poll are any guide, Holder´s service has not brought him much public approval. The Attorney General was one of a number of people and organizations that Journal pollsters asked respondents to "rate your feelings toward each one as very positive, somewhat positive, neutral, somewhat negative, or very negative."

Is Obama Leading or Being Led?
National Journal, by Ron Fournier    Original Article

Consider this paradox: Americans overwhelmingly support President Obama´s actions against the Islamic State so far—airstrikes and humanitarian assistance without ground troops—and yet they disapprove of Obama´s handling of the ISIS crisis. Why the split mind? The White House and its liberal media echo chamber says it has nothing to do with the president´s job performance, which they find virtually flawless. Spokesman Dan Pfeiffer played the victim card: "The people who try to beat us up over these things will continue to do so." The Huffington Post blamed the American people; we´re too stupid to know what´s

Harvey Milk once famously said: "Politics is theater." Barack Obama has, intentionally, never grasped that fact.Obama, whether you like him or not, is one of the most naturally-gifted politicians the country has produced in a very long time. To oust Hillary Clinton in a Democratic primary as a freshman senator and go on to win two presidential elections convincingly -- all by the age of 51 -- is a resume that few will ever be able to match.And yet, for all of his abilities and accomplishments, Obama simply has ever been willing to embrace the theater end of politics, the

Obama Blames Border Crisis
for Immigration Reform Delay

President Obama blamed this summer´s surge of unaccompanied kids at the Mexican border for his decision to delay executive action on immigration until after the November midterm elections, NBC News reported. “The truth of the matter is that the politics did shift midsummer because of that problem,” Obama said. He rejected criticism that the move is an attempt to help embattled democrats during a contentious election year, saying the reforms would be more "sustainable" if they´re enacted after the highly-polarized political season. Obama made the comments to Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd in an interview that will air Sunday

Several pro-jihadist Twitter accounts on Saturday published gruesome pictures apparently showing Islamic State militants beheading another Lebanese army soldier, around ten days after the same group executed captive army sergeant Ali al-Sayyed.“We executed another army soldier, Abbas Medlej, after he tried to escape,” Turkey´s Anatolia news agency quoted an unnamed IS leader as saying. The so-called Qalamun branch of the Islamic State also published a statement confirming the execution of Medlej.“Today, Lebanese soldier Abbas Medlej tried to escape from his prison in a malicious manner,” the group said in a statement

On Wednesday, President Obama, speaking from Estonia, launched a series of bizarre comments at the Islamic State. After announcing that America “will not be intimidated” by the Islamic State – a bizarre statement from the most powerful man on the planet about a terrorist group he called “jayvee” just a few months ago – Obama explained that America could make ISIS a “manageable problem” if it could mobilize the “international community.” “We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISILl´s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point

How Isil doctored the image of Obama,
making him appear haggard in videos
Telegraph (UK), by David Blair    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 9/4/2014 7:57:09 AM     Post Reply
Isil´s video editors have carefully manipulated colour and screen size to make Barack Obama look as haggard as possible in their recent productions. The two videos disclosing the murders of James Foley and Steven Sotloff display Isil’s mastery of complex editing and animation techniques. Both productions set out to denigrate Mr Obama and present a narrative that blames him for the deaths of the two journalists. Comparing the two videos shows how Isil has improved its techniques – but the terrorist film-makers still remain capable of basic mistakes. The videos share the same structure: they begin with clips of Mr Obama ordering air

LA Times Now Describing Illegal Aliens As

Via Weasel Zippers, we learned the Los Angeles Times has a new term for illegal aliens in the work force: they’re “informal workers,” and that doesn’t mean they don’t arrive on the job in a tuxedo. Times reporter Tiffany Hsu (a "UC Berkeley grad") began her Saturday story with the new I-word (and illegal immigrants also “labored unofficially” in "gray employment"): Informal workers are growing part of California’s economy — a shift keenly felt in the construction industry, where 1 in 6 workers is either off the books or misreported, new research has found. Construction businesses in the state employ roughly 895,000 workers,

On Tuesday night, the three major broadcast networks omitted from their coverage on the Islamic group ISIS a report that President Barack Obama has received briefings on the terrorist organization “for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer.” ABC, CBS, and NBC all led their evening newscasts with multiple segments on the gruesome murder of American journalist Stephen Sotloff at the hands of ISIS in a propaganda video released on Tuesday afternoon. Over on the Fox News Channel (FNC), Special Report with Bret Baier aired three segments on the story, including a report

Less than 48 hours ahead of a planned address to the nation on how the U.S. plans to combat Islamic State terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, President Obama dined at the White House Monday with a slate of foreign policy experts. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry were joined by some of Washington’s most established foreign policy hands, including Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, who held the same position during the Carter administration. Former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon was also at the dinner, as was former Undersecretary for Defense Policy

The beatings of three people in a Kroger parking lot Saturday night will not be investigated as a hate crime, according to police officials. Memphis Police Department director Toney Armstrong said he’s had lots of calls asking how the investigation would proceed but said there is “not sufficient enough evidence to investigate this as a hate crime.” “I know this has a lot of racial undertones,” Armstrong said during a news conference Monday at Memphis City Hall. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls and I know (Memphis Mayor A C Wharton) has as well.

Joan Rivers "banned" First Lady Michelle Obama, pop star Adele and talk show host Chelsea Handler from attending her funeral just weeks before her sudden death. The comedienne sent Hollywood into mourning when she died Thursday, days after suffering a cardiac arrest during a routine throat procedure. Her funeral was held in her New York on Sunday and attracted stars including Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Osbourne and Sarah Jessica Parker, and it has now emerged Rivers had previously drawn up a wish-list of famous faces who should stay away.

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist. (Snip) By 2080, the bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, could see its habitat decrease by 75%, the report says. All of the habitat of the common loon, the state bird of Minnesota, could disappear in the lower 48

Washington — Panera Bread on Monday asked customers not to bring firearms into its restaurants, joining a growing list of retail and fast-food chains that have declared their establishments gun-free zones. The company said it wants to ensure that "customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome” in its restaurants. “We ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer," the eatery chain, which boosts 1,800 locations in the United States and Canada, said in a statement Monday.

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true. Mr. Cathy, who died on Monday at 93, was by all appearances a humble Christian man from Georgia with little education who sold a simple sandwich: a

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
