The sad death
of Private Eye

Telegraph [UK], by James Delingpole

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/1/2012 12:47:05 PM

In the latest issue of Private Eye I'm described as a "batshit anti-environmentalist." I suspect this may have been a typo for "batshit mad", which is what they called me last time they wrote about me. (According to that particular story, I was the Telegraph's most popular blogger--ha! eat your hearts out Tebbo and Hannan! But apparently this is only because I'm so barmily out-there I attract all the world's lunatics. Or some such). Anyway, it goes almost without saying that I am delighted to be celebrated in this way. To be namechecked in the Eye means, more or

Obama administration is acting like
´a bunch of cowards´ for closing 19
U.S. embassies in response to terror
threat, blasts Texas congressman
Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/6/2013 3:23:58 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration has been accused of behaving ´like a bunch of cowards´ after 19 embassies were closed in the wake of the Al Qaeda terror alert. Louis Gohmert, a Republican congressman from Texas, recalled the September 11, 2012 terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton famously suggested in a Senate hearing that it was largely irrelevant whether the attack was the result of a terrorist plot or--as the administration initially claimed--an outgrowth of a spontaneous anti-U.S. protest. [Snip] ´The difference it makes,´ he said, ´is that If you will bother to find out exactly what

´You´re disgusting!´ The moment
Anthony Weiner was confronted by
a screaming woman on campaign trail

Anthony Weiner´s past has caught up with him as an angry former constituent went on a tirade during a campaign stop on Monday. [Snip] ´You are disgusting! You are an embarrassment of a third-generation native,´ Jane Borock screamed while getting in Weiner´s face. According to The New York Observer´s Politicker blog, the disgraced former congressman tried to calm her down by saying that he appreciated her passion, but that didn´t work. ´I’m passionate? More passionate than you on Twitter. I’m a social media expert. Get someone to handle your s*it! You are disgusting. Disgusting,´ she said.

State Sen. Bright opens US
Senate campaign website,

SPARTANBURG, S.C. - State Sen. Lee Bright has brought his campaign website online as he considers a Republican primary challenge against U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham next year. The website asks people to sign up for Bright’s newsletter, promising to send them a video announcement the moment he decides to run against Graham. It includes the slogan: “Bright. For Liberty. For Senate.” The Roebuck lawmaker says he is waiting to see how the field shapes up before making his formal announcement. Bright was elected to the Senate in 2008. Two other candidates are already in the race.

Why al-Qaeda in Yemen
scares the West
BBC News [UK], by Frank Gardner    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/6/2013 2:35:40 PM     Post Reply
Whatever plot the US eavesdroppers overheard the top two al-Qaeda leaders discussing clearly rattled the US intelligence community so badly that Washington shut 19 of its diplomatic missions around the Middle East, Asia and Africa. In the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, where the threat of attack is considered greatest, the UK, France and Germany have also shut their embassies. The British embassy has emptied completely, with all remaining British staff leaving the country on Tuesday, while the US air force flew out American personnel. So just what is it about al-Qaeda´s branch in Yemen that triggers such warning bells in Washington?

An interesting spot by Political Scrapbook that says a lot about the politics of the English Defence League. This morning Tommy Robinson (or Stephen Yaxley-Lennon or Andrew McCaster or Flimbo the Amazing Clown or whatever his name really is) tweeted a link complaining about mass immigration under Labour--and it turns out that the link was to an anti-Semitic website. It´s called The Traitor Within (never a good sign) and after detailing New Labour´s nefarious plan to flood the country with good plumbers, it concludes with a paragraph claiming that the ministers involved in its immigration policy "are all Jewish".

Four Al-Qaeda militants have reportedly been killed in a US drone attack in Yemen. It comes as America has warned all ´non-essential´ US citizens to evacuate Yemen immediately amid fears of a terrorist attack. The UK Foreign office has also withdrawn embassy staff from the country and is advising against all travel there. The U.S. has pummeled terror leaders in Yemen with targeted drone strikes. Yemeni security officials have today said a suspected U.S. drone killed the four alleged Al Qaeda members in a volatile eastern province of the country. The drone fired a missile at a car carrying

   

 

  


 
Jeff Bezos buys out the Washington

Somewhere down there, Richard Nixon must be rubbing his hands with glee. The Graham family have been forced to sell The Washington Post--the liberal newspaper that helped bring down Tricky Dick with its coverage of the Watergate burglary. Nixon hated the Post for the not unreasonable reason that it hated him. It wasn´t just the pursuit of Watergate that irritated, but the climate that the daily helped create of liberal disdain for his presidency--its insistence that anyone with a fully functioning heart and brain voted Democrat. That attitude wouldn´t have mattered if print didn´t enjoy such a monopoly over the

US embassy closures sparked by
Ayman al-Zawahiri message
Telegraph [UK], by Raf Sanchez    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/5/2013 7:34:50 PM     Post Reply
US intelligence picked up on messages in which Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden´s successor, ordered Nasser al-Wuhayshi, the head of its Yemen branch, to carry out an attack. The messages represent rare coordination between al-Qaeda´s core leadership, which is in hiding in Pakistan, and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the terror group´s most dangerous offshoot. In response the US has ordered the unprecedented closure of embassies in 19 countries across the Middle East and Africa until at least Saturday. Britain, Germany, France and Holland have also closed their embassies in Sana´a, the Yemeni capital, until later in the week.

The joke´s on Obama as he

President Obama has replaced Republican Mitt Romney as the most popular target for comedians, a study has revealed. [Snip] Obama was the target of 288 gags made by Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Craig Ferguson and Jimmy Kimmel, according to an analysis by the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University. The second most joked-about individual was New York City Democratic mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, at 120. But as the study was conducted before Weiner´s second sexting scandal had come to light, the number of jokes aimed at him is expected to have jumped dramatically

Anthony Weiner´s sexting partner has stripped down for the public as she filmed a video for a major porn distributor. Sydney Leathers poses provocatively in a five-minute clip of the video, and talks about her virtual relationship with the disgraced congressman. ´He would always compliment me on my breasts and my butt and my feet, and he would always tell me I was the perfect height to wear heels,´ the 23-year-old said. In the video, created by porn production company Vivid, Leathers is seen disrobing from various lingerie sets and displaying the assets that many feel cost Weiner his

A Texas man dramatically turned the tables on two bank robbery suspects who had abducted him and his wife on Thursday, by pulling a gun on the duo and shooting them both, killing one. According to KHOU, the unnamed couple were targeted by brothers Jordan, 20, and Preston Kutach, 21, who knew that the woman worked at the First National Bank of Eagle Lake in Columbus, near Houston. The suspects kidnapped the couple at gunpoint in their own home, then made them drive to the bank where they forced the woman to withdraw cash. But then her husband struck back

Iran´s new president Hasan Rouhani has accused the United States of seeking an excuse to confront the country over its nuclear programme. The new leader reportedly made the claim during a meeting with North Korean official Kim Yong Nam, who is in the Iranian capital Tehran to see Mr Rouhani´s inauguration. According to Iranian state TV, the president said: ´We believe the United States and the Westerners are seeking an excuse to confront the countries that they do not consider friends.´ The West suspects Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons programme, a charge which Iran denies.

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not? Daniel Pipes: Don’t know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even humiliating.

WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”

The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking

In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”

The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential

But you can, you can get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and to see how far we´ve come. Really? Martin and Till are the same thing?

Winfrey said that, in her mind, Martin’s murder and that of Emmett Till in 1955 – whose killers were also acquitted – were the “same thing.” However, she added that it is important to keep in mind how much race relations in America have progressed over the last half-century.
