Understanding the Israeli-
Egyptian-Saudi Alliance

FrontPage, by Caroline Glick

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 8/22/2014 8:07:18 AM

Hamas’s war with Israel is not a stand-alone event. It is happening in the context of the vast changes that are casting asunder old patterns of behavior and strategic understandings as actors in the region begin to reassess the threats they face. Hamas was once funded by Saudi Arabia and enabled by Egypt. Now the regimes of these countries view it as part of a larger axis of Sunni jihad that threatens not only Israel, but them. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and its state sponsors Qatar and Turkey, are the key members of this alliance structure. Without their support

This has everything to do with the only chance the U.S. can remain secure until we have a new president.

Interesting, when the Obama administration allies US power with all the most evil depraved factions others have to form new alliances to survive. I wish them well. Tell me again why Obama cannot be impeached for the good of the world. I know it is hard for these arrogant elite to admit that they were wrong. Perhaps a thousand years of living under this Islamic Caliphate would do it!

End the Meth Crisis Now
American Thinker, by William Zeliff    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 9/6/2014 9:32:22 AM     Post Reply
The damage done by drug abuse and drug-related crime is enormous, and continues to radiate across American communities. Heroin deaths have recently captured national headlines. Another drug with devastating impact is methamphetamine. We need to think about ending the meth crisis now, because thanks to DEA, Congress, and the advance of science, we are getting closer to being able to do that. There are no panaceas, but we need to take the next step toward reducing the proliferation of meth labs. Meth is produced by thousands of so-called “mom and pop” labs across the United States, and it is having a

My Secret Shame: I´m Addicted

The new season of "19 Kids and Counting" is here. And I´m excited. So what? Generally speaking, I enjoy the most salacious, violent and depressing television shows I can find. (Snip) It was only by chance that I stumbled across the decidedly wholesome and un-artistic "19 Kids and Counting." I showed up to mock the unbridled puritanism of a bunch of freaks -- not to mention poke fun at my own family for watching such dreck -- and I never left. I can´t remember when it happened exactly, and I don´t know if I´ll be able shake this bizarre feeling, but

Quick, someone at American Thinker tell the Devil to check his ponds for skim ice. I know it’s gotta be starting to freeze over down there, because I just found myself nodding my head and agreeing with Geraldo Rivera in his appearance on the O’Reilly show. Geraldo pointed out to Bill that the optimal course to take in dealing with ISIS is to formally declare war on the Islamic State, uniting the Congress and the nation in a determined campaign to ensure the total and complete destruction of said Islamic State. He made the excellent point that ISIS has declared itself

Since the Jennifer Lawrence photo hack, Internet security has come under scrutiny. But why do many young women feel the need to take and share nude selfies in the first place? Don’t get me wrong: I think hackers are morally reprehensible and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But I also think that we need to build an alternative to the dogma, “If you’ve got it, flaunt it.” Young women are told that it’s a sign of being “proud of your sexuality” to “sext” young men—a philosophy that has turned girls into so many flashing beacons,

It’s Time to Kick ISIS
Members Out of America

Every week brings new reports of Muslims in America flocking to join ISIS. Those who aren’t killed in battle will eventually return to New York, to Los Angeles and to Minneapolis–Saint Paul. And they will stop being Iraq’s problem and become our problem. ISIS is more than just another terrorist group. It is now an Islamic State. Its followers and allied militias pledge to obey the Caliph of ISIS and reject all allegiances to other states and entities. Western ISIS recruits burn their passports to show that they are no longer citizens of those countries.

Common Core Validation Committee

Sufficient Evidence’ for the Standards
National Review, by Jason Richwine    Original Article

It’s all too common: The backers of a broad-based political movement claim their cause is steeped in evidence, but a perusal of the research reveals more hope than substance. The Common Core education standards are a good example. As I noted last week, George Washington University’s compendium of 60+ research papers on Common Core included just two focused on the standards’ impact on student achievement, and the results were mixed at best. The people who developed and validated the Common Core have themselves acknowledged its weak evidence base. That’s clear from an article in the November 2013 issue of the

U.S. Government Lost Track of 6,000
Foreign Nationals of ‘Heightened Concern’
Daily Signal, by Melissa Quinn    Original Article

More than 6,000 foreign nationals in the United States on student visas have vanished after overstaying their time here, raising alarm at the Department of Homeland Security. The federal agency is now working to find them after losing track of their whereabouts. Officials at the federal agency told ABC News there are more than 58,000 students who overstayed their visas over the past year. Approximately 6,000 of those foreign nationals were referred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for “follow-up,” as they’re of “heightened concern.” “My greatest concern is that they could be doing anything,” Peter Edge, deputy associate director for Homeland

New York’s ‘shut up’ rule

Keep quiet. That’s the message being sent by New York State Board of Elections, which disregarded the First Amendment to enact new “emergency regulations” on political speech that could become permanent at the end of this month. Intended to regulate spending by independent groups during campaign season, the regulations are so expansive that almost anyone, citizen or organization, hoping to have their say on any issue could find themselves in bureaucratic dire straits. Imagine you hear a radio ad where your state representative — let’s call him Fred — claims to oppose higher taxes. But you know that Fred voted three times

Countless business owners across America have lost bank accounts because of a Justice Department initiative called “Operation Choke Point.” According to a House report, the secretive effort pressures financial institutions to deny a variety of legal businesses access to the very banking system they need to survive, simply because the Obama administration finds the businesses objectionable. Targeted enterprises include payday lenders, pawn shops and gun sellers. Meet four business owners who experienced Choke Point’s adverse effects firsthand:

Grover Norquist Goes to Burning Man

It’s a hell-hot Friday afternoon, and conservative anti-tax activist Grover Norquist and I are walking down a dusty footpath at Burning Man, the annual New Age festival held in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. (Snip) t’s a much different scene than you’d find at the offices of Americans for Tax Reform, the influential right-wing organization Norquist leads, but he seems charmed rather than frightened. “If you had 500 people get together and [they did] something like this, that would be impressive,” he says, surveying the blocks full of elaborately decorated theme camps. “But seventy thousand?” Further down the path, while Norquist

Irresponsible Choices
Creators Syndicate, by Thomas Sowell    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 9/2/2014 8:59:56 AM     Post Reply
The latest Gallup poll indicates that 14 percent of the people "moderately disapprove" of Barack Obama´s performance as president and 39 percent "strongly disapprove." Since Obama won two presidential elections, chances are that some of those who now "strongly disapprove" of what he has done voted to put him in office. (Snip) With many people now acting as if it is time for "a woman" to become president, apparently they have learned absolutely nothing from the disastrous results of the irresponsible self-indulgence of choosing a President of the United States on the basis of demographic characteristics, instead of individual qualifications.

Obama was "noticeably absent" from the start of the meeting, according to a White House pool report, although U.S. Ambassador to NATO Douglas Lute was in attendance.Obama was late to the Ukraine meeting because of other meetings on Afghanistan and a meeting with King Abdullah of Jordan, according to a White House official.Back at the Ukraine meeting, leaders were addressed by NATO Secretary General Anders Rasmussen, who urged Russia to stop the "illegal" annexation of Crimea. “We call on Russia

It is one of the world´s most famous ancient sites. And tonight it seemed Barack Obama could not resist a chance to see Stonehenge for himself - ordering his helicopter to make an unscheduled stop on his return home from the Nato summit. After flying out of Newport in south Wales, Marine One made an unannounced landing at Boscombe Down Airbase in Wiltshire. The President´s motorcade then weaved its way for 20 minutes across Salisbury Plain, to the amazement of passing drivers.

Barack Obama stands apart from other modern American Presidents in many ways. (snip)the widespread view that he is the coolest President ever. This supernal coolness is not new. In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the President wrote that in his teenage years “I tried my best to be cool at all times” (p. 82). However, leaving aside the contradiction inherent in trying to be cool, it is possible that Barack Obama’s teenage experiences may have left him psychologically, and perhaps even neurologically, incapable of performing fundamental tasks of his current position. Much of the appeal of coolness is its

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said new allegations that U.S. commandos were ordered to “stand down” during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, aren’t supported by findings from House and Senate investigators. Five commandos who survived the Benghazi attack, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, made the allegation in a new book, accusing the CIA station chief of delaying a rescue mission. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) said lawmakers never came across evidence indicating the station chief had told his team to “stand down” and abort a

The Internal Revenue Service has lost emails from five more employees who are part of congressional probes into the treatment of conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status, the tax service disclosed Friday. The tax agency said in June that it could not locate an untold number of emails to and from Lois Lerner, who headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The revelation set off a new round of investigations and congressional hearings. On Friday, the IRS issued a report to Congress saying the agency also lost emails from five other employees related to the probe,

Last Wednesday, at a ceremony to appoint Texas lawyer Shaarik Zafar to be special representative to Muslim communities, Secretary of State John Kerry said it was the United States’ Biblical “responsibility” to “confront climate change,” including to protect “vulnerable Muslim majority counties.” Kerry said Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, makes clear it is our “duty” to protect the planet and we should look at Muslim countries “with a sense of stewardship of earth,” adding, “That responsibility comes from God.” And here you thought all along that “Uncle Joe” was the resident crazy in the Obama administration.

LAS VEGAS — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday the U.S. should become what she called the world’s 21st-century clean energy superpower, during remarks resembling both a campaign speech and a call to action at the annual National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas. Clinton cast the threat of global climate change as real, and “the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges” faced by the nation and the world. “The data is unforgiving,” the former New York senator and first lady said to a standing room crowd of more than 800 people at a Las Vegas

Sen.

There is reportedly better than a 50-50 chance that former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will run for president. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Bush´s inner circle of "advisers have been quietly spreading the word that they should avoid committing to other possible presidential candidates until he decides on his own course after the November election" and have been actively dismissing "speculation that the former Florida governor has ruled out a 2016 run." Jim Nicholson, "a Bush supporter who served in President George W. Bush´s cabinet," told the outlet: "I think the chances are better than 50-50
