Gaza conflict: 100,000 Gazans warned to
leave homes as Israel steps up bombing

Telegraph U.K., by David Blair

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/16/2014 7:27:58 AM

Israel escalated its offensive against Hamas on Wednesday, carrying out dozens of air strikes and warning about 100,000 Palestinians to leave their homes in the Gaza Strip by a deadline of 8am. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) held fire for six hours on Tuesday in accordance with an Egyptian ceasefire plan, but an official statement said that Hamas continued to launch rockets, killing one civilian. “When it was clear that Hamas had no intention of ceasing its fire after it had launched over 75 rockets, the political echelon approved the IDF to resume targeting terror sites across the Gaza Strip,”

This dear friends is how a country defends it´s citizens and deals with those trying to kill them. It must be clear to everyone that you cannot negotiate or protest against those bound and determined to wipe you out.

Frankly I think that Israel is being kind by warning citizens to get out of town. We are the people of Palestine right here in America, our government is trying to subjugate us and one day use us as human shields. You doubt this? Take a look at what is going on at our southern border, and the people we pay who are ordered to look the other way, while citizens who defend their property with force are prosecuted.

Crack-Smoking Democrat Refuses

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/7/2014 11:21:24 AM     Post Reply
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

Israel Demands Hamas Be

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 Accidentally Claims

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

How to Keep Data Out

The numbers sound abstract: Hundreds of millions of email addresses and other types of personal identification found in the hands of Russian hackers. For people worried that they are caught in the mix, however, the discovery by Hold Security of a huge database of stolen data is very personal. But personal doesn’t mean helpless. There are common sense steps everyone can take to keep the impact of hackers to a minimum. How do I know if my personal information was stolen? Assume it is. The latest breach is huge, and similar attacks and smaller thefts are happening all the time.

China is investigating a Canadian couple who ran a coffee shop on the Chinese border with North Korea for the suspected theft of military and intelligence information and for threatening national security, China’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday. The official Xinhua news agency identified the two as Kevin Garratt and Julia Dawn Garratt. In a brief report, Xinhua said the State Security Bureau of Dandong city in northeast Liaoning province was investigating the case, adding it involved the stealing of state secrets. Neither the Foreign Ministry nor Xinhua said whether the couple had been detained, although the ministry said the Canadian embassy

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, known as “America’s Rabbi” and the founder of This World: The Values Network, has been running a paid advertising campaign featuring Nobel prize winner Elie Wiesel opposing Hamas’ use of child sacrifice. This ad has appeared in the New York Times, New York Observer, Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal without a hitch. Until today. The Observer has learned that The London Times refused to run Rabbi Shmuley’s ad.

President Barack Obama will announce on Tuesday that U.S. businesses have committed to investing $14 billion in construction, clean energy, banking, and information technology projects across Africa, a White House official said. The announcement will occur at the U.S.-Africa Business Forum, part of a three-day Africa summit in Washington meant to showcase U.S. interest in improving trade and investment in the region. "These investments will deepen U.S. economic engagement in Africa, fueling growth that will support broader African prosperity and emerging markets for US businesses, which will support jobs in both the United States and Africa," the White House official said.

Glenn Greenwald wants to make this perfectly clear: He finds Megyn Kelly’s views “viscerally repellent.” But the crusading privacy journalist has plenty of complimentary things to say about how the Fox primetime host conducts herself on air. “She has a lower tolerance for being fed incoherent tripe from her own side than the average cable news TV host,” Greenwald said in an email. “Most Fox and MSNBC hosts treat even the most blatant idiocy with respect if it advances their party’s political agenda for the vapid cable news partisan controversy of the day. Kelly, by contrast, seems to be often contemptuous

Why Obama Should Roll
Heads at the CIA
National Journal, by Ron Fournier    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/5/2014 8:00:38 AM     Post Reply
Heads should roll at the CIA, but not for the obvious reasons. Let´s review the cacophony of issues raised by the brutal post-911 interrogation program, including the CIA´s lies, cover-ups, and a Constitution-bending spying operation against Senate staffers. 1. An exhaustive Senate Intelligence Committee investigation has determined beyond reasonable doubt that the CIA´s interrogation methods amounted to torture. The report does not recommend new punishment or further criminal inquiry, which may be an acknowledgement of the fact that CIA agents were carrying out orders of superiors, and the superiors were acting urgently, almost desperately, to protect the country from follow-up attacks. 2.

Going cuckoo in Cuba

Ay, caramba. Turns out, the U.S. government’s tragicomic attempts to spark revolution in Cuba were even worse than first reported. Back in April, an Associated Press exposé revealed that fools at the U.S. Agency for International Development bumbled their way into starting a half-baked Twitter-style messaging service, the goal of which was to stir up dissent and ultimately overthrow the Castro regime. The objective was laudable. The execution was laughable, in part because USAID was at the helm of what was, essentially, a job fit for the CIA. Now comes word that the same global relief agency engaged in a second knuckleheaded bit

Tutankhamen, Richard III, Louis XVI — throughout history, the deaths of monarchs have set off wars, revolutions and writing careers. Now, the passing of the last of the imperial Ottoman Turks has led to a battle over the rent-controlled apartment of an Afghan princess on the Upper East Side. In 1945, Ertogroul Osman moved into a two-bedroom walk-up apartment on the top floor of a three-story commercial building on Lexington Avenue south of 74th Street. Though it had a handsome mansard roof at the time and a prime uptown location, the stout 34-foot-wide property was practically a hovel compared with the

At the Barack Obama Secondary School in Nyang’oma Kogelo, in the highlands of western Kenya, teacher Maurice Okech Othiambo remembered the excitement that swept the village when Obama was elected president. Obama had visited his ancestral home in Kenya in 2006 as a U.S. senator, and received a rapturous welcome. In July 2009, locals watched enthusiastically as he laid out his grand vision for a reinvigorated relationship between the United States and Africa. Standing before parliament in Accra, Ghana, on one of his first trips abroad as president, Obama proclaimed “a new moment of promise,” and declared the continent to

‘Extraordinarily Irresponsible’ —

Press Conference

President Obama gave a press conference this evening. He started a little over an hour late without explanation. Reporters stuck to asking questions that they evidently knew Obama would be comfortable answering. None of them asked him about any of his administration scandals. ABC’s Jon Karl, usually a tough questioner of Obama and his spokesmen, asked a rambling question that played right into the Democrats’ “economic patriotism” canard. Despite the fact that the president showed a passionless, bloodless, disinterested face to the world, he still managed to do some damage. Chris Jansing of CNN asked Obama if the sanctions against Russia are working.

It doesn´t get much more cool and easy breezy than FLOTUS in a topknot. Seriously, if you looked up "summertime" in the dictionary, you´d see this picture of Michelle Obama in a bright yellow sundress and a chic updo. The first fady looked positively radiant in a gorgeous neon yellow chiffon dress by Prabal Gurung during the United States-Africa summit dinner Tuesday night. Obama is a known fan of the Nepalese designer, and we adore this vibrant and effortless look on her. She also often favors bright, bold colors—and this shade of electric lemon yellow? Perfection.

A California couple is speaking out after they say their finances have been devastated over their daughter’s student loan debt, which they are being forced to repay after the woman died unexpectedly four years ago. Steve and Darnelle Mason’s 27-year-old daughter Lisa died suddenly from a liver disease, leaving behind three children. Darnelle Mason, who is now raising her grandchildren along with her husband, told Fox Business the “excruciating” pain of losing her daughter has only been compounded by the crushing debt. “She was doing what she really loved to do,” Mason said. “So it is really just a crushing

First Lady Michelle Obama shared some thoughts about women versus men during a conversation with former First Lady Laura Bush at the U.S Africa Leaders Summit in Washington D.C. Obama explained that as First Lady it was important to remember to use the position to highlight their personal interests. “We can’t waste this spotlight, it is temporary and life is short and change is needed and women are smarter than men. And the men can’t complain because you’re outnumbered today,” she said as the audience laughed. Obama cited Laura Bush as a First Lady that acted with a level of

Former Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton warned of the perilous new age our world has sunken into under President Obama’s leadership. Bolton appeared on Fox Business Wednesday and hammered the president for his failure to effectively lead. “The world is descended into chaos,” Bolton said. He referenced a new WSJ/NBC poll that found Americans are panicking over the uncertain, dismal state of our country. The poll found that only 36 percent of Americans surveyed approve of President Obama’s foreign policy. The former Ambassador warned that if America cowers from a position of power, “you are going to have

The disgraceful video above shows how racist Russian students projected a laser image of Barack Obama eating a banana on to the US Embassy in Moscow. On 4th August, the so-called show began with a message to the US President pretending to wish him a happy 53rd birthday. A likeness of Obama with a party hat on his head then appeared, although the mouth area was made to look like that of a monkey - and a banana repeatedly moved into the mouth. The series of projections are then repeated several times. A group calling itself The Moscow Student Initiative

The GOP has shown time and again that it is incapable of passing any meaningful immigration reform. But give them tens of thousands of Central American children fleeing violence, and they fly into action. Turns out, what animates today´s Republicans is deporting kids. So inspired were they, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives stayed late Friday to distort and demagogue a humanitarian crisis, passing a reprehensible bill that the Republicans claim addresses the border crisis. Kevin Appleby, director of the Office of Migration Policy at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, told me, "This bill guts any real due process for

This week, ProPublica released a report on the financial (and moral) corruption of a Tea Party group operating under the name Move America Forward, which was founded by one Sal Russo. Russo also helped start the Our Country Deserves Better PAC, aka the Tea Party Express. Move America Forward has run fake drives to give care packages to troops, stolen images of other charitable campaigns and passed them off as its own, and trumpeted a nonexistent partnership with Walter Reed Hospital — all while funneling very real millions to itself.

Dozens of government watchdogs are sounding the alarm that the Obama administration is stonewalling them, in what is being described as an unprecedented challenge to the agencies they´re supposed to oversee. Forty-seven of the government´s 73 independent watchdogs known as inspectors general voiced their complaints in a letter to congressional leaders this week. They accused several major agencies -- the Justice Department, the Peace Corps and the chemical safety board -- of imposing "serious limitations on access to records." The inspectors general are now appealing to Congress to help them do their jobs uncovering waste, fraud, and mismanagement.

The Africa summit is officially underway, which means one very important thing for the District: The first lady of Cameroon’s hair is here. Chantal Biya has single-handedly made mullet the new magnificent. Biya’s bouffant is a beauty school master’s thesis in contradictions. Somehow her hair manages to be short and long, rebellious yet elegant, unruly but controlled. And whether she’s visiting the pope or hanging out with Paris Hilton, the 43-year-old’s signature style remains unfazed. Here we humbly submit just a small sampling of the many coifs of Chantal. Washingtonians should expect to see each and every one around town this week.

Concern about rising wealth and income inequality has generated all kinds of solutions, often focused on improving the lot of the people at the bottom with measures such as minimum wages. But instead of putting a floor on what people get, why not put a ceiling on how much they get to keep?(Snip)Suppose that people, after paying ordinary income taxes, would be allowed to keep up to, say, $500,000 of their income, then would be obliged to give away the rest to the charities of their choice or, if they like, to a charity of their own design and creation.
