Former Israeli security chief:
Israel may have to take military
action against Iranian bases in Syria

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Herb Keinon

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/17/2017 11:20:34 AM

Israel may need to take military action to prevent Iran or Hezbollah from setting up permanent bases in Syria, former National Security Council head Yaakov Amidror said on Monday. (Snip) “We will not let the Iranians and Hezbollah be the forces that will win the very brutal war in Syria” and then move their focus onto Israel, he said. Up until now Israel has been very careful to say out of the war in Syria, saying it will only intervene – and indeed only has intervened – to protect the red lines Netanyahu established: that game-changing weaponry is not transferred to Hezbollah via Syria, that Hezbollah and Iranian troops are not

Comments:
In case you´ve been distracted by Kim Jong-un and his attempt to put a nuke on the warhead of an ICBM to deliver where he pleases, don´t take your eyes off of the Middle East where Iran is moving in on Syria´s border to make trouble with Israel. China backs the Norks, and Russia Iran (Syria´s Assad). Don´t have a limited attention diverted like a kitten playing with a string. While the summer days are longer, the Dog Days of War are approaching.

Sounds like a good plan. Stopping the Persians has been a good thing since 480 BC at Thermopylae.

Trump signs $15 billion Harvey
relief, debt ceiling package
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/8/2017 7:58:49     Post Reply
President Trump on Friday signed a $15 billion Hurricane Harvey relief bill that includes a short-term suspension of the debt ceiling and funding to keep the government running for the next three months. Earlier Friday, the package passed in the House of Repreentatives by a 316-90 vote, with all opposing votes coming from Republicans. Congress moved with uncharacteristic speed on the bill to avert several looming crises – the prospect of not only triggering a government shutdown, but hitting the debt limit as the federal government burns through cash it needs to respond to both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma which is

In deal with Trump, Democrats
see opportunity — and peril
Washington Post, by Sean Sullivan, Anne Gearan    Original Article

Democratic leaders have been running victory laps in the days since they struck a deal with President Trump, over Republican objections, to extend the nation’s borrowing limit and keep government open for three months. But new divisions among Democrats show that peril may yet lie ahead for Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), whose newfound connection with the president has put them in a similar spot as many Republicans this year: working with an unreliable and unpopular partner to attain legislation that may never come.

Hillary Clinton takes yet another dig at Donald Trump in new new memoir, saying the ´flagrantly sexist´ candidate won the 2016 election. Clinton´s memoir settles scores with a range of competitors and opponents, while providing unsparing language for Trump, who Clinton complains stalked her on a debate stage to the point where it made her ´skin crawl´ and she wanted to say ´back up, you creep.´ In another excerpt reported by the New York Times, Clinton says sexism ´played a role´ in the election where she suffered a historic defeat. ´This has to be said,´ Clinton writes.

Trump’s DOJ won’t pursue charges against
Lois Lerner, former IRS senior executive

The Trump Justice Department has once again cleared former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner of criminal liability stemming from the tea party targeting. In a letter to top Republicans, Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd said they re-reviewed the case and concluded there isn’t enough evidence to charge Ms. Lerner, who was at the center of the targeting. Mr. Boyd said the new review included lawyers who only recently joined the department and weren’t part of the Obama administration’s earlier decision. “After this process, the Department determined that reopening the investigation would not be

Former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina announced Friday she will not run for U.S. Senate in Virginia next year. “I’ve decided that I can be of more valuable outside the system than a single voice among 100 inside the system,” Ms. Fiorina said on “The John Fredericks Show.” “So I’m going to continue the work I’ve been doing for many years enlisting up leaders and problems solvers all across the country and have made the decision to seek the U.S. Senate seat here in the Commonwealth.” Ms. Fiorina’s announcement was coupled with the news that former Gov. Jim Gilmore is “considering” a candidacy,

Professors from Harvard University and other Boston-area colleges were arrested Thursday while protesting against President Trump’s plan to rescind an Obama-era program shielding young illegal immigrants from deportation. Thirty-one people, including professors from Harvard, Babson, and Boston College, were arrested after forming a human chain and blocking traffic along Massachusetts Avenue, The Harvard Crimson reported. Cambridge Police Department spokesman Jeremy Warnick said the protesters refused police orders to move. “They were given multiple opportunities to continue their free speech,

The Environmental Protection Agency’s gravy train just ain’t what she used to be. Green groups are awestruck, agog and maybe even aghast at the news that the Trump administration has put a political operative to work vetting applications for EPA grants worth hundreds of millions of dollars. John Konkus, who was Donald Trump’s campaign chairman in Leon County, Florida, last year, now, according to The Washington Post, “reviews every award [the EPA] gives out, along with every grant solicitation before it goes out.” Green groups are discovering that Donald Trump is not the same president as Barack Obama, whose EPA

(Video) - Hillary Clinton said Thursday that she was devastated and drained after her loss to Donald Trump in 2016, but regained her strength by relying on a mix of prayer, yoga and “my fair share of Chardonnay.” Clinton, speaking at an event focused on her faith at New York’s Riverside Church, said she did not think she was going to lose heading into Election Day and was entirely thrown by the defeat. To get through it, Clinton said, she turned inward, relying on her “internal resources” and the support of her family and friends. (Snip) And, in a light moment, Clinton added, “Yes, I had my fair share of Chardonnay.”

Solar Storms May Deter Kim From
Launching Missile on Anniversary
Bloomberg Politics, by Isabel Reynolds    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/8/2017 6:46:47     Post Reply
North Korea could decide to delay its next ballistic missile launch because a current outbreak of severe geomagnetic storms can pose a risk to electronic equipment. While missiles are generally heavily shielded against radiation, Kim Jong Un may decide not to risk firing one during the solar flares in case they lose data or ancillary equipment, said Lance Gatling, an aerospace consultant with Nexial Research in Tokyo. He added that the U.S. and Japan might be hoping for a launch so they can test detection and tracking equipment in a storm environment. South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon said Thursday the next launch

Mayor Bill de Blasio rounds the corner of a Gracie Mansion porch wearing a broad smile. (Snip) What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of

Energized Trump Sees
Bipartisan Path, at Least for Now

Washington - By the time President Trump woke up on Thursday morning, he was feeling upbeat. And as he watched television news reports about his fiscal agreement with Democrats, he felt like telling someone. He picked up the phone and called the two Democratic congressional leaders, Senator Chuck Schumer of New York and Representative Nancy Pelosi of California. “The press has been incredible,” he gushed to Ms. Pelosi, according to someone briefed on their call. He was equally effusive with Mr. Schumer, boasting that even Fox News was positive. A few hours later, Mr. Trump went on TV

Magnitude-8.1 Earthquake
Hits Off Mexico’s Southern Coast

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/8/2017 5:02:32     Post Reply
The most powerful earthquake to hit Mexico in 100 years struck off the country´s southern coast early Friday, killing at least five people and prompting warnings it could trigger tsunami waves up to 10 feet high. The quake that struck just before 1 a.m. ET was more powerful than the 1985 tremor that killed more than 5,000 people in Mexico City, according to President Mexican Enrique Peña Nieto. However, with an epicenter 40 miles off the coast and some 460 miles from the capital itself, the damage appeared to be far more limited. At least five people were killed by the quake, according to authorities.

In an interview with Channel 4, a British public service television network, American actress Jennifer Lawrence blamed the recent hurricanes on Donald Trump’s voters, because they don´t believe in man-made climate change. During the lengthy interview on her new movie Mother!, the conversation turned political about halfway through. After discussing the alleged pay gap between men and women, the interviewer asked Lawrence about climate change and the political climate in America. “I mean when the director was asked about the film, why it was so dark, he said, ‘It’s a mad time to be alive.’ And there is certainly an

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has taken a ton of heat over the past few days for essentially claiming that the warnings over Hurricane Irma — a massive Category 5 storm heading right for Florida — were related to a broader “deep state” conspiracy to promote climate change, force people to buy bottled water and increase the news media’s ratings. During his radio program yesterday, Limbaugh remained defiant, claiming that media accusations that he was placing people in danger by spreading conspiracy theories were completely untrue. And yet, at the same time, he doubled down on what he previously had said,

In the beginning of the 2016 presidential race, most conservatives like myself, had their own favorites and very few considered Donald Trump as one. Mine was Rick Perry followed by Marco Rubio once Gov. Perry dropped out. As the race proceeded and Trump continued to mow them all down, I was dismayed at how the debates seemed to be fixed by the GOP establishment and the media. Then a strange thing happened. I started listening to what Donald Trump was saying during his campaign. My brother Joe who was battling late stage cancer called me up one night speaking enthusiastically about how

The news that President Trump abandoned Republicans to strike a deal with congressional Democrats on a three-month extension of the debt limit yielded a predictable response from his predictable cheerleaders: It was brilliant and typically shrewd for the author of “The Art of the Deal” to take the very first offer the Democrats made and ask for nothing in return. Less obsequious observers on the right claimed this was the long-prophesied moment. The seventh seal had been broken. Donald Trump was “pivoting” at last. “The pivot is real and it’s spectacular!” proclaimed Ben Domenech, the publisher of The Federalist. In the lexicon

WASHINGTON — Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine says he does not know much about so-called members of “antifascist” (Antifa) groups but says it is unfair to paint them with a broad brush. When asked by The Daily Caller Thursday if Antifa should be considered a terrorist organization, Kaine replied: “I don’t like broad brushes and I don’t know enough about them to say that they’re terrorists but people who do violent things. The law should take care of them.” The Department of Homeland Security has called the activities of Antifa “domestic terrorist violence,” according to Politico. Kaine’s son, Linwood, was

Protesters rallied Tuesday against the Trump administration´s plan to end a program that protects young undocumented immigrants from deportation. "We are here because I am angry. I am tired of how the immigrant community is treated," Jose Luis Santiago, a DACA recipient, told CNN en Español at a protest outside Trump Tower in New York. "It is time to take action." In Washington, Gustavo Torres, executive director for the immigrant advocacy group CASA de Maryland, told a demonstration Trump lied to immigrants.

The National Science Foundation is spending over $130,000 on a study that asks four-year-olds about their "internal sense of gender identity." A grant for a two-year study was awarded to the University of Washington this summer. The project will interview 250 children aged four to six, and their parents, asking a series of questions about "gendered behavior." "Prominent theories of gender development have discussed the degree to which gender identity results from an internal sense of gender and socialization processes," according to the grant. "However, tests of these theories have been limited because, for most children, internal gender identity and

Suddenly, it seems like Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) are driving the agenda in Congress. The deal President Trump struck with the two Democrats over the objection of the majority leaders in his own party has at least temporarily upended the balance of power in Washington, emboldening Democrats who now see space to work with Trump on immigration and spending. It’s a dramatic shift from Trump’s first seven months in office, when the president worked almost exclusively with Republicans and Democrats were largely an afterthought. But

New episodes of CBS´s Star Trek: Discovery are inspired by the post-Trump America, with the Klingons set to represent Trump supporters. The upcoming season of the show will tell the story of a war between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, which will be a loose allegory for the 2016 election, Entertainment Weekly reported Thursday. "The allegory is that we really started working on the show in earnest around the time the election was happening," showrunner Aaron Harberts told EW. "The Klingons are going to help us really look at certain sides of ourselves and our country.
