Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/19/2014 9:06:44 PM

The US State Department announced on Tuesday that it was designating the Mujahidin Shura Council in the Environs of Jerusalem (MSC) – an umbrella organization made up of Gaza-based jihadist terrorist groups – as a foreign terrorist organization. The group has claimed responsibility for several attacks against Israel, including an August 2013 rocket attack targeting the port city of Eilat and another attack against Gaza frontier town Sderot on March 21, 2013. The group also backs the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Comments:
One more absurd name to add to the list of killer terrorist organizations.

The 14 craziest McDonald’s

On a recent road trip through New Mexico, I decided to stop in Roswell. I’ve always been curious about the UFO and alien conspiracy theories that made this tiny desert town famous. I figured that the only attraction worth visiting would be its kitschy International UFO Museum. Turns out I was wrong. Something else pretty “out of this world” captured my attention. And no, it wasn’t an extraterrestrial sighting. It was the local McDonald’s. It’s the only one in the world designed like a UFO. This got me wondering: What other bizarre McDonald’s locations exist around the world? In its quest for global fast-food domination, McDonald’s has opened

Beckley, WV - Mitt Romney said Tuesday that the problems inflicted by President Obama’s policies are even worse than he predicted during the 2012 presidential campaign. “It’s been a good deal worse than even I expected,” Mr. Romney told reporters after headlining a rally here for Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. “I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,” he said. “But the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.” Mr. Romney, former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican

The video, uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday, includes about a minute and a half of President Obama announcing his recent authorization of targeted airstrikes and a humanitarian operation in Iraq. Around the two minute mark, a man believed to be James Wright Foley, 40, delivers a statement: “I call on my friends, family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers: the U.S. government.” He then addresses his brother John, a member of the U.S. Air Force, at length. After about two minutes and 20 seconds, he is beheaded. Two people who know Foley said the man in the video appears to be him, and that the voice sounds like his.

The funeral for Michael Brown Jr. will be on Monday, August 25, a lawyer for his family announced on Tuesday. Attorney Benjamin Crump said more details would follow. Brown’s fatal shooting by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer on August 9 has touched off over a week of angry protests in the community. Brown´s parents, Michael Sr. and Lesley McSpadden, say prosecution of the officer who shot their unarmed son is the only thing that can bring peace to the streets of Ferguson. "Justice will bring peace," McSpadden told Today´s Matt Lauer Tuesday.

ObamaCare tax not
meeting revenue target because
companies not paying, audit finds
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/19/2014 4:56:56 PM     Post Reply
A government audit says an "ObamaCare" tax on medical devices is falling short of its revenue target because thousands of companies aren´t paying it. The audit by the Treasury inspector general for tax administration says the Internal Revenue Service needs to do a better job policing the tax. To help pay for President Barack Obama´s health law, Congress enacted a 2.3 percent tax on the sale of medical devices used chiefly by doctors and hospitals, such as pacemakers and CT scan machines. The tax took effect in January 2013. For the first six months of that year, the IRS estimated it would collect $1.2 billion from the tax.

Accused terrorists being held in a Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba have cost the federal government roughly $300,000 for liquid nutritional supplements due to hunger strikes. Since March of 2013, 161,352 cans of liquid supplements have been purchased, which included $142,345 worth of vanilla Ensure, VICE News reported Monday. Documentation was provided to the news outlet after a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit was filed against the Department of Defense. “The transaction reports are especially noteworthy because they show that the purchases were made during a time when military officials were

If you´ve been lucky enough to enjoy a vacation this summer, you´ve most likely handed your photo ID over to a TSA agent (or your own country´s equivalent). But according to a study published Monday in PLOS ONE, endless practice hasn´t turned them into human passport-scanning machines. In fact, the people responsible for checking photo identification all day might not be any better at recognizing a mismatched face than you are. (Snip) When the officers compared photos to live people, they let fraudulent photos through 14 percent of the time. When asked to decide if multiple photos truly showed one person at different ages

NY church backs out of federal plan

A New York church has dropped its proposal to temporarily house roughly 40 juvenile immigrants who have entered into the United States from Mexico, citing a missed deadline for the federally-funded program and a looming change in leadership. Rev. Marc Herbst, an assistant to the bishop of the Metropolitan New York Synod-Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, told FoxNews.com that Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Commack has abandoned its plan to house the children for roughly 10-day stays. “At this point, it just doesn’t look like this is going to be feasible,” Herbst said Tuesday. “At this point, it’s not appropriate

In Raqqa, Syria, the Islamic State´s "caliphate" has already become a reality. All women in the city are required to wear the niqab veil and pants are banned. Thieves have their hands hacked off and opponents are publicly crucified or beheaded, with the images of these horrific acts then posted on social networks. (Snip) The jihadists with the Islamic State, or IS, are acting out their fantasies of omnipotence in the name of God. They´re murdering, torturing and forcing families to give their daughters away for marriage to Islamist fighters coming in from abroad. One girl whose family agreed to marry her off took her own life.

6 more journalists arrested

Six journalists were taken into custody while covering the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, on Monday and early Tuesday, aggravating what one press freedom group has called a "concerted, top-down effort to restrict the fundamental First Amendment rights of the public and the press." The incidents bring the total number of journalists arrested during the mid-August protests to 11. Other journalists reported being threatened with arrest and affected by tear-gas on Monday night. Authorities tried to restrict members of the news media to a designated area away from the protests, sometimes nicknamed a "press pen."

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease. [Snip] Observers might ask, “How can this be happening in an America that has elected a black president?” How can black kids still get killed by white cops and how

While Barack Obama may have his own personal feelings towards the death of Michael Brown and the deterioration of order in Ferguson, Mo., he took pains during his press conference today to stress that he is, first and foremost, the President of the United States, and that the investigation in Brown’s death is still in progress. “I have to be very careful about not prejudging events before these investigations are completed, because these are issues of local jurisdiction,” he said during a Q&A during a press conference, in which he announced that he was sending Attorney General Eric Holder to

FERGUSON, Missouri — It was a little after 9 p.m., and I was in the McDonald’s parking lot, standing by my car. A police helicopter circled overhead, its spotlight sweeping back and forth.Then I heard the sound of shattering glass: A rubber bullet had been fired through a window of McDonald’s, which until then, had been one of the few sanctuaries on West Florissant Avenue. Now I didn’t feel safe anywhere. State troopers in riot gear and armored trucks moved south on West Florissant, firing flash grenades and tear gas canisters at a crowd of protesters who only minutes before had been

President Barack Obama is getting off the island. In a rare move for him, the president planned a break in the middle of his Martha´s Vineyard vacation to return to Washington on Sunday night for meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers on the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and tensions between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. He´s received multiple briefings on both issues while on vacation. The White House had also already announced Obama´s plans to return

Historians will have the rest of the century to unravel the mess that is the Barack Obama presidency. While they can explore these years of foreign policy disaster and domestic malaise at leisure, the rest of us have 29 more months to see just how awful things can get before he slides off to a lucrative retirement. But those who want to start the post-mortem on this historic presidency would do well to read Jackson Diehl’s most recent Washington Post column in which he identifies Obama’s hubris as the key element in his undoing.

Since the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, the nation and the world have witnessed the unrest that has gripped Ferguson, Mo. At the core of these demonstrations is a demand for answers about the circumstances of this young man’s death and a broader concern about the state of our criminal justice system. At a time when so much may seem uncertain, the people of Ferguson can have confidence that the Justice Department intends to learn — in a fair and thorough manner — exactly what happened. Today, I will be in Ferguson to be briefed on the federal civil rights

Montpelier, VT - Former Vermont U.S. Sen. James Jeffords, who in 2001 tipped control of the Senate when he quit the Republican Party to become an independent, died Monday. He was 80. Jeffords died in Washington, said Diane Derby, a former aide to Jeffords. He had been in declining health, she said. Jeffords had announced in 2005 that he would not seek a fourth term, citing his and his wife´s health problems. "I have had an enormously satisfying career, one that I would not have traded for any other," Jeffords said when he retired. "In no other job do you
