Some see Qatar’s hand in
collapse of Gaza talks
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/21/2014 10:02:07 AM     Post Reply
Dubai, UAE — The explosions rocking the Gaza Strip may seem far removed from the flashy cars and skyscrapers of ultra-rich Qatar, but efforts to end fighting between Hamas and Israel could hinge on how the tiny Gulf Arab state wields its influence over a Palestinian militant group with few friends left. Qatar has been home to Hamas chief-in-exile Khaled Mashaal since 2012 and has carved out a role as a key financial patron for Gaza, buying influence while shoring up an economy overseen by Hamas.

Former CIA terror fighter warns
that Americans ‘will die’
because of open border

Michael F. Scheuer, former head of the CIA’s Osama Bin Laden unit, said Thursday that the best way to protect Americans form terrorists is to secure the border. “What we could have done after 9-11 if we really wanted to improve U.S. security … was to close the southern border and perhaps even spots on the northern border with Canada,” Mr. Scheuer said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “At least you secure the continent in that way. Right now we’re exposed, not only internationally, but we don’t know who is in our country,” he said. “It seems to me that [it is] a simple conclusion of logic: Close the border, protect America.”

BLOOMFIELD — City councilors unanimously voted on Wednesday to appeal a federal judge´s ruling stating a monument at City Hall inscribed with the Ten Commandments is unconstitutional. The city plans to appeal the judge´s decision to a three-judge panel with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver. The 10th Circuit has territorial jurisdiction in six states — New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming and Utah. Senior U.S. District Judge James A. Parker issued his ruling in the case on Aug. 7. In it, he stated the monument constitutes government speech and endorses a religion. He ordered the monument to

Iceland volcano: Fears of eruption
increase as Met Office registers
1,000 small earthquakes in region
Independent [UK], by Rose Troup Buchanan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/21/2014 9:36:03 AM     Post Reply
Fears of another volcanic eruption in Iceland continued today with reports that weather officials have detected 1,000 small quakes in the Barðarbunga volcano, following an unusually strong earthquake on Monday. Hundreds of people have been evacuated from the highlands north of the Vatnajokull glacier by Iceland’s civil protection department after the volcano began belching huge plumes of smoke. Iceland’s Met Office released an updated statement this morning, saying: "seismic activity in Bárðarbunga and vicinity is still great. As yesterday, the main activity stems from the intrusive event under Dyngjujökull."

Wake up, America —

Will the videotaped execution of James Foley shock America out of our dangerous flirtation with isolationism? The gruesome beheading of the 40-year-old photojournalist should scream out a warning to any who still doubt: This isn’t just some war out there. It’s about us. Some see Foley as a noble but careless man, too courageous for his own good, who unwisely decided to go freelance in faraway war zones, armed with nothing more than a camera and adrenaline. Kidnapped once, in Libya, Foley still went back to war journalism in Syria — where he was abducted again in November 2012 by forces close to

A cleric in Dearborn popular with supporters of the militant group ISIS owes a quarter of a million dollars in restitution and other costs stemming from his fraud convictions, according to newly filed court records. Ahmad Jebril, 43, who has gained an international following among ISIS fighters and sympathizers, is on probation after serving 6½ years in prison. After being released in 2012, he has used social media to become what experts say is the most popular religious leader for Islamists from the West fighting for ISIS, also known as ISIL or the Islamic State. On Wednesday, President Barack Obama strongly condemned

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Antonio Smith, 9, was fatally shot in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood, his family told Eyewitness News Wednesday night. The victim´s relatives made a plea to the shooter, who remains at large on Wednesday night. "He was just a child, just a baby, still had a whole life ahead of him. And like, why? Just a child," said Kenya Eggleston, victim´s cousin. Smith was shot multiple times in the chest around 4 p.m. Wednesday in the 1200-block of East 71st Street.

Attorney General Eric Holder has gone from dead man walking to man of the hour for team Obama. As Holder arrived in Ferguson, Mo., Wednesday to address the police shooting of an unarmed teenager, it was clear that the attorney general had emerged as arguably President Obama’s most-trusted confidant rather than the source of consternation that once frustrated so many White House officials. “He gets more crap than anybody,” a former Obama senior administration official told the Washington Examiner. “But Eric is as battle tested as anybody out there, and there should be little doubt about where he stands with

Bill Clinton enjoys a Gurkha cigar, "the Rolls Royce of the cigar industry." He "loves the Gurkhas," Gurkha chief executive officer Kaizad Hansotia, maker of the HMR cigar, which stands for His Majesty´s Reserve. It is, according to Hansotia, "the world´s most expensive cigar." One box is $25,000 -- and the price will rise next year to $30,000. "The cigars are close to $1,000 each," says the cigar boss to Bloomberg. "People try to copy us a lot, but we have no competition," says Hansotia. "We tell everybody, please smoke a Cuban cigar.

Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney strongly criticized President Barack Obama on Wednesday night for going golfing immediately after delivering a statement on the beheading of American journalist James Foley. "Every day we find new evidence that he’d rather be on the golf course than he would be dealing with a crisis that’s developing rapidly in the Middle East," Cheney declared during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. Earlier in the day, Obama took a break from his vacation in Martha´s Vineyard to give an angry and emotional speech condemning the jihadist group ISIS and praising Foley´s career

Chris Christie, Scott Walker and Rick Perry are all positioning themselves to enter the 2016 presidential race as top-tier candidates for the Republican nomination. But before concerning themselves in earnest with becoming the next GOP standard-bearer, these three governors must contend with a shared, and unpleasant, distinction: Each man, or his administration, faces accusations of legal wrongdoing. For months, Christie has been trying to move beyond investigations into a decision by members of his administration to close traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge last September in an apparent act of political revenge. Meanwhile, Walker has faced down an inquiry

Loss for Democrats in Midterm Elections
Could Be Boon for Clinton
New York Times, by John Harwood    Original Article

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s international woes give his former secretary of state good reason to seek political distance. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s recent foreign policy criticisms made that clear. Domestically, their interests diverge in a different way. A Republican takeover of the Senate this fall would hurt Mr. Obama for the final two years of his presidency, but it might help Mrs. Clinton if she runs to succeed him. Republican control of both the House and Senate would provide Mrs. Clinton a clearer target to run against in courting voters fatigued by Washington dysfunction.

To the four clean-cut college freshman out on a double date, it had seemed like a typical McDonald´s (snip) Before them, hundreds of young black males were loitering about, some without shirts. Other local residents -- the more cynical and world-weary, both whites and most blacks -- would have taken one look at the crowd and driven off, dismissing many of the young and posturing black males as thugs. But not them: innocent white kids from the suburbs. They presumed this was post-racial America -- and that they were in an easy-going college town. Twenty minutes later, two of them

WEST ORANGE — The man accused of gunning down a Livingston teenager in his car earlier this summer told investigators the murder was an act of retribution for U.S. military action against Muslims in the Middle East. According to court documents filed Wednesday in Washington state, where he is accused of killing three other men, Ali Muhammad Brown said he considered it his mission to murder 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin as an act of “vengeance” for innocent lives lost in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran.

Simcha Goldin, father of fallen soldier Second Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, has responded to news that one of the senior Hamas terrorists eliminated in an early-morning airstrike in Gaza was responsible for the attack which killed his son. Raed al-Attar was killed along with Mohammed Abu Shamalah and Mohammed Barhum in the pre-dawn IAF strike, representing a serious blow to Hamas´s military command in southern Gaza. Attar is believed to have coordinated an attack against IDF forces in Fatah on August 1, breaching a 24-hour humanitarian ceasefire, in which two soldiers were killed and Hadar was abducted.

Let me me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet. Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is

KABUL, Afghanistan — The attorney general of Afghanistan on Wednesday ordered the expulsion of an American correspondent for The New York Times, Matthew Rosenberg, and barred him from re-entering the country. The action, the first public expulsion of a Western journalist since the Taliban regime, came less than a day after the office of the attorney general, Mohammad Ishaq Aloko, issued an order prohibiting Mr. Rosenberg from leaving the country while he was under investigation. Both orders related to an article written by Mr. Rosenberg that was published Tuesday by The Times. It said that high-ranking government officials were discussing

Barack Obama is discovering--rather belatedly--precisely what is involved in being president of the United States. [Snip] He now has a full-blown, world-threatening foreign crisis in which the decisions that he makes from one minute to the next might result in immediate mass slaughter, a prolonged war or a gradual de-escalation of the conflict--or possibly all three in progressive stages. At the same moment, bizarrely, he is facing a domestic upheaval of staggering proportions: the return of riots and racially based violence in the urban streets of a kind which his very election as president was supposed to have made a

The fanatic who beheaded an American journalist was last night named as one of a gang of British jihadis known as ‘The Beatles’. As a massive manhunt was launched, a former hostage said he believed the masked Islamic State maniac was a Londoner he had known as ‘John’. The security services are also close to establishing the identity of the killer who cut James Foley’s throat in a horrific propaganda video. Said to be a senior Islamic State operative, he was trusted earlier this year to negotiate a hostage exchange. As David Cameron broke off his holiday to deal with the crisis, further evidence

The armed wing of Hamas announced Thursday that three of its senior commanders were killed in a pre-dawn Israeli air strike in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades in a statement identified the leaders as Mohammed Abu Shamalah, Raed al-Atar and Mohammed Barhum. Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said eight people were killed in the strike. Witnesses said a four-storey family home was completely destroyed in a series of air strikes. The airstrike was carried out based on intelligence provided by the Shabak (Israel Security Agency), which led to the identification of two central Hamas figures.

President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that ´when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.´ Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha´s Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times.

It was late in the afternoon on a warm Friday in early fall and Doug Sumrell was mowing the lawn outside his suburban home in Evans, Georgia. As he pushed the mower across the yard, Sumrell began to feel faint — his chest tightened and the back of his neck started throbbing — so he went inside to take a break and drink a glass of water. But each time he went outside to finish the job, the feeling came back. He drove himself to the hospital as the sun was setting. On the way there, he left a message

Why I Sued the President

President Obama has dared those who criticize his repeated failure to faithfully execute the laws to “sue me,” believing that no one can show the injury needed to do so. But when one of the administration’s many lawless actions shifted certain responsibilities to the states, we gained the standing to sue that so many others have lacked. So on July 29, I accepted the president’s invitation and filed a lawsuit on behalf of the state of West Virginia to hold the Obama administration accountable for its illegal conduct. Though we are a small state — with approximately 1.8 million people
