U.K. charges ex-Gitmo detainee with
terrorism, attending ISIL training camp

Washington Times, by Phillip Swarts

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/19/2014 11:11:51 AM

A former detainee in Guantanamo Bay is pleading not guilty to terrorist charges stemming from the civil war in Syria. Moazzam Begg, 45, is the latest former U.S. prisoner who has since been connected to terrorism. He was released in 2005 after appeals were made on his behalf by the United Kingdom. The former detainee, Moazzam Begg, 45, has been charged in the U.K. on several counts related to his actions in Syria, including attending a terrorist training camp, the Belfast Telegraph reported Friday. The situation comes less than a month after another former Gitmo detainee, Lahcen Ikassrien, was arrested in Spain for recruiting jihadist fighters

Comments:
This is why WE know it´s better NEVER to let any of these terrorist free from GITMO. If 0bama wishes to do so, then let him hire them to work in the White House kitchen, learning new skills with their knives. There are plenty of rooms in his digs to use as a halfway house, especially since he and Michelle don´t seem to spend many nights there. s/o.

He didn´t know it was a terrorist training camp. He thought it was a fund raiser for Democrats.

Daily Beast, by Ben Jacobs    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/10/2014 12:17:11 AM     Post Reply
Dick Cheney spoke to House Republicans on Tuesday about the need for military action in Iraq. (Snip) According to Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana, Cheney said Obama “has actually done things that have supported the Muslim Brotherhood.” The former vice president then went on to name the Muslim Brotherhood as “the beginning of all the Islamist groups that we’re dealing with now like Hamas and ISIS.” In Fleming’s account, Cheney said that by “facilitating the Muslim Brotherhood…our policies have been exactly opposite to where they should be.” Fleming’s description of the meeting was echoed by Rep. Peter King of

A Republican Senate candidate in Oregon is bucking the GOP by embracing gay marriage in a new campaign ad. The ad, from the campaign of Dr. Monica Wehby who is challenging incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley, prominently features a gay couple — Ben West, of Portland, who filed a lawsuit in 2013 with partner Paul Rummell to overturn Oregon’s same sex-marriage ban that went into effect in 2004. (Snip) The majority of the Republican Party has opposed gay marriage, making Wehby a maverick in her party. Along with the ad, West and Rummell also endorsed Wehby in a statement: “Monica is the leader our state needs

An overwhelming 71 percent of Americans support airstrikes against the terrorist Islamic State group and 65 percent want expanded U.S. strikes, according to a new poll released Tuesday. The ABC News/Washington Post poll found growing support for military action, with 90 percent of U.S. voters describing the Islamic State group as a “serious threat.” Support of expanding airstrikes spans the political spectrum, with backing by 74 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of Democrats. Support for arming Kurdish fighters who oppose the Islamic militants has climbed 13 points, to 58 percent, in just the past month — another

Nike Inc. (NKE) terminated its endorsement contract with Ray Rice after the online release of a video of the former Baltimore Ravens running back punching his then-fiancee unconscious. Rice is no longer a Nike athlete, spokesman Brian Strong said today in an e-mail. The 27-year-old Rice, who led the Ravens in rushing for the past five seasons, had been with the world’s largest sporting goods maker since 2008. (Snip) The running back’s wife wrote a post on her Instagram account this morning defending her husband. She blamed the media for pushing the story to “gain ratings.”

Smartphones will soon
help cars park themselves

Detroit - With a thumb swipe on a smartphone, your car one day will be able to drive into a parking deck, find an open spot and back into a space — all by itself. Technology being honed by French auto parts maker Valeo uses a dozen ultrasonic sound-wave sensors, 360-degree cameras and a laser scanner to safely park within a few centimeters of other vehicles. Then, when you’re done with dinner or a business meeting, the car will return to you after another swipe of the thumb. The potential benefits are plenty. More orderly parking means less congestion. Drivers are spared the time and frustration of the hunt for a spot.

New York - At least five states have launched a joint probe into the data breach on the payment-card processing systems of Home Depot Inc, even as the retailer works to determine the impact on its customers in the United States and Canada. The coordinated effort was disclosed on Tuesday, a day after Home Depot confirmed suspicions that its payment processing systems have been breached. (Snip) The retailer has said the breach could have affected any customer who had used a payment card at one of its stores in the United States since April of this year. Some analysts have speculated that the size of the breach could rival

The Ray Rice suspension became such a big story on Monday it even sparked reaction from the White House. The news of Rice being cut by the Ravens and then indefinitely suspended by the NFL after video surfaced of the running back hitting his then-girlfriend broke during a daily press briefing in Washington. At the time White House spokesman Josh Earnest responded in a general way to domestic violence but had not had a chance to speak with President Obama about the specific incident. Later Monday, the White House released a statement attributed to Earnest: "The President is the father of two daughters.

What’s in a name? It turns out, a lot, according to a video posted by Buzzfeed by a man named José Zamora. He was searching for a job online and had sent in dozens of applications and resumes, without yielding any interviews. So he decided to try a little experiment by dropping the “s” and the accent mark from his name, becoming just “Joe.” The résumés and application information he sent as Joe were identical, except for the name. As the video explains, he almost immediately started getting responses from potential employers. We don’t know much else about José Zamora than what this video tells, but it does raise a lot of

Condi Rice: The one person

Condoleezza Rice made a startling admission to the New York Times in 2002. The then-national security adviser to President George W. Bush said it was “absolutely right” that she wanted to be commissioner of the National Football League. This was no joke. Rice was serious, but she wanted it to be known that she wouldn’t want to do it “before Paul Tagliabue is ready to step down.” Well, Tagliabue is long gone and his successor Roger Goodell has made a mess of it. Time for the former secretary of state with an intense love of the game to step in and save the NFL. We’d all seen the chilling video back in February of Baltimore

   

 



 
“So We’ll Choose the
Way of Trust and Joy Instead.”
Commentary Magazine, by Peter Wehner    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/8/2014 6:46:15 PM     Post Reply
In a fascinating interview with Charlie Rose, David Brooks–who is now teaching moral philosophy at Yale–spoke, among many other topics, about Viktor Frankl, the Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor. Dr. Frankl, in his book Man’s Search for Meaning, deals with the fact that he was living a life he didn’t plan for. Living in a concentration camp obviously isn’t what he hoped for. The crucial question became not what Frankl wanted out of life; it was what he would do with the hand he had been dealt. Dr. Frankl decided, “Suffering became a problem upon which I did not want to turn my back.”

Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush unveiled a new leadership training program in Washington today. Clinton said the initiative will encourage Americans to “have vigorous debate, serious disagreements, knock-down, drag-out fights, and somehow come to ultimately a resolution that enables the country to keep moving forward.” “We want people from all walks of life and different political persuasions,” Bush said. “We want people who have shown the capacity to succeed. People who work hard, and who work with others in a good way.” The six-month training program, which will begin in February 2015,

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
