Obama waives ban on
arming terrorists to allow
aid to Syrian opposition

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad´s regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah. The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would "waive the prohibitions in sections 40

Obama does what he wants, when he wants because thus far the MSM will not call him on anything and that in turn freezes the GOP in place.

Expect things to change only when the GOP attains power again and the MSM will once again find their orbs.

Yesterday - all the talk about gun violence and the need to disarm Americans.

Today - Obama is arming Syrian terrorists.

Is the rule now that only Muslim terrorists are allowed to have guns?

Providing weapons to sworn enemies of the United States is treason. Aiding and abetting this action is treasonous. The President should be impeached. When will this Congress take the appropriate action. This action isn´t even up for debate or questionable. My opinion.

#6: Bingo. Both actions are huge, but juxtaposed, the revelation and the implicit message are much bigger. Arm the monsters, disarm the good. Only evil can work for that. But thanks for "posting my post" for me.

#5: Why should we "send humanitarian aid"? Why aren´t those famous "1-billion-plus ´moderate Muslims´" in the world flooding Syria with humanitarian aid? Clamoring to take in refugees?? For that matter, why aren´t they flooding Syria with "peacekeeping troops"?

#7: Let´s ask Huma. She has connections, and now that "Carlo´s" mayoral campaign is over, she has spare time to discuss it.

#13: Yep. Your concluding line shows you´ve got it figured out.

#14: There´s already been an F&F 2. It was in some Caribbean country IIRC. News came out about the same time, but with no media notice, it disappeared.

So obama is going to arm the rebels? I think not. He´s going to make the American taxpayer foot the bill.

So here´s the way I understand it - the "rebels" are the Muslim Brotherhood which is friendly to Saudi Arabia. Assad is friendly to SA´s mortal enemy, Iran. The Saudis want us to protect them from their enemies. Nevermind that SA´s friends incinerated over 3k Americans.

So maybe now the jerk bowing to the SA King makes more sense - especially since from what we know the Saudis paid for zero´s degrees.

Sellout, traitor, Manchurian Candidate, whatever you call him the man belongs in prison and not in our once beloved White House.

The traitorous evil that resides in our White House will stop at nothing to weaken conservative, GOD fearing, gun loving America which is its only stated enemy and the only force left in the world keeping freedom and liberty alive.

The demon Muslim brother and Islamofacist (militant Islam, I now believe and by its very definition, is the anti-Christ) wants WWIII and then to declare Marshall law to achieve its master´s desire to destroy GOD´s good works and bring equal misery upon the whole world.

Principalities are at work here but, there is one fatal flaw in the evil entity´s plan: GOD cannot and will never be defeated.

We must now stand and protest in mass to awaken those who are still asleep. It is time time choose sides then get on our knees and pray!

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February.

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues.

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008.

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch.

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
