U.S. Hits al-Shabaab in Somalia

It used to be the one place you didn’t go.

Legal Insurrection - 

Fox News reports that the United States has executed a series of drone strikes against al-Shabaab strongholds in Somalia. The Pentagon is still reportedly assessing the success of the strike, which was aimed at al-Shabaab leadership:
A senior Somali official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press that a U.S. drone targeted al-Shabaab leader Ahmed Abdi Godane as he left a meeting of the group’s top leaders. The official told AP that intelligence indicated Godane “might have been killed along with other militants.”
The official said that the strike took place in a forest near Sablale district, 105 miles south of Mogadishu, where the group trains its fighters. The governor of Somalia’s Lower Shabelle region, Abdiqadir Mohamed Nor, told The Associated Press that as government and African Union forces were heading to a town in Sablale district, they heard something that sounded like an “earthquake” as drones struck al-Shabaab bases.

The U.S. action comes after Somalia’s government forces regained control of a high security prison in the capital that was attacked Sunday by seven heavily armed suspected Islamic militants who attempted to free other extremists held there. The Pentagon statement did not indicate whether the U.S. action was related to the prison attack.   Read More

Feds Punish Business For Engaging In ‘Citizenship-Discrimination’

Daily Caller - A Texas catering business will pay the United States $26,400 for engaging in “citizenship-discrimination,” as part of a settlement with the Justice Department announced Tuesday.
Culinaire International unlawfully discriminated against employees based on their citizenship status, the Justice Department claimed, because it required non-citizen employees to provide extra proof of their right to work in the United States.
Culinaire has agreed to pay the United States $20,460 in civil penalties, receive training in anti-discrimination rules of the Immigration and Nationality Act, revise its work eligibility verification process, and create a $40,000 back pay fund for “potential economic victims.”    Read More

Recovery? 3 "Uncomfortable Truth" Charts

What to Watch in the House Mid-Terms

The AP expects the GOP to "tighten its grip" on the U.S. House of Representatives this year citing "redistricting after the 2010 census and the retirement of moderate Democrats in conservative states," although the Democrats financial edge is something of a wild card.

Two of the most vulnerable governors are Pennsylvania Republican Tom Corbett and Illinois Democrat Pat Quinn. Incumbents and candidates in those states are hoping they can survive despite the top of the ticket. It's especially true in Illinois where first-term Democratic Rep. Brad Schneider is in a close rematch with Republican Robert Dold in Chicago's northern suburbs and freshman Democratic Rep. Bill Enyart is trying to hold off state Rep. Mike Bost.
In the end it seems to come down to, not if the GOP will pick up seats, but how many, where and at what cost to both them and deep-pocketed Democrats determined to give them a run fpr their money in states where they can.     Read More

10 Acts of Jihad in America That Americans Haven’t Heard About

PJ Media - While the world’s attention is focused on the Islamic State, and its jihadis tell Americans that they will “drown all of you in blood,” jihad activity continues in the United States – although hardly anyone notices through the fog of mainstream media obfuscation.

Obama May Be Bypassing Congress on Climate

Daily Signal (Nicolas Loris) - President Obama reportedly wants to go around our elected officials to implement climate change regulations that will drive up energy costs for Americans. The New York Times is reporting that the administration is looking for ways to sidestep the Constitution and the normal treaty ratification process to commit to an international agreement urging other countries to reduce carbon emissions.
The Constitution requires that any legally binding treaty must be ratified by two-thirds of Senate and signed by the president. If past experience is anything to go by, the Senate has no appetite for such a treaty. Before the American delegation headed to Kyoto, Japan, in 1997 to negotiate a global warming treaty, the Senate passed the Byrd-Hagel Resolution 95-0 expressingthat any climate change treaty should not leave out developing countries or impose harm to the U.S. economy. Since then, international climate negotiations have become more meaningless by the year.
But the Times reports, “To sidestep that requirement, President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a ‘politically binding’ deal that would ’name and shame‘ countries into cutting their emissions.”
Name and shame? The administration’s plan is to call out large carbon emitters like China and India who have hundreds of millions without access to electricity and shame them for developing their economies and giving their people a better standard of living? It’s to shame them into cutting their carbon dioxide emissions when these countries are striving to gain access to breathable air and drinkable water, neither of which have anything to do with carbon reductions?  The shameful part of the administration’s plan is that it will trap developing economies in poverty and pretend that transferring wealth to them will make us all feel altruistic.
In a response to the New York Times report, a State Department official said, “It is entirely premature to say whether it will or won’t require Senate approval. “ However, if the administration does bypass Congress, it certainly won’t be the first time – it won’t even be the first time on this issue. The Timesalso points out that “in seeking to go around Congress to push his international climate change agenda, Mr. Obama is echoing his domestic climate strategy.”
With Congress unable to pass cap-and-trade legislation as the administration hoped, the EPA is moving forward with its own set of climate change regulations, primarily targeting new and existing power plants. Restricting carbon emissions would harm American families and businesses through higher energy costs and provide no environmental benefit. Families would pay more to use less electricity. The costs would reverberate throughout the economy as affected industries passed higher costs onto consumers. Incorporating America’s domestic climate plans into any international politically bind deal still fails the Byrd-Hagel test because these regulations will inflict serious harm to the American economy.
Furthermore, there is no need or appetite to restrict economic growth to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Americans often have a reputation for being out of step with the rest of the world, but on climate change they are in the global mainstream, according to the United Nations’ “My World” survey. As of August 27, there had been more than 3.86 million votes submitted to the survey from nearly every country and territory around the world. Individuals are presented with 16 issues and asked to select the six that “are most important for you and your family.” Dead last among the choices was “action taken on climate change.” Action taken on climate change was least important to individuals in the least developed countries. Much higher was reliable energy at home.
Americans and the rest of the world are right to be skeptical about taking action on climate change; the realities are that the planet is not headed toward catastrophic warming nor is it experiencing more frequent and violent extreme weather events.
It’s clear Obama wants his legacy to include action on climate change but in doing so he might end up bypassing democracy and the Constitution – and increase energy costs for American families. 

Sometimes Race Is Thicker Than Logic

Dave Weinbaum - The fact that a Ferguson or ten Fergusons haven’t exploded under this President and his Attorney General is more than amazing. It’s a sign that white police officers are no longer vested in the crimes of killing blacks. You can bet your EBT card that the race-baiter-in-chief, Barack Obama and his self-described “activist” AG, Eric Holder are always looking for white-on-black crime.

George Zimmerman’s killing of Trayvon Martin raised their hopes. Falsely identified as a “white Jew,” Zimmerman proved to be a Hispanic, white and just for good measure, part black—whose BFF was black. He wasn’t a cop either, just a community watchman.

Making money is easy if you have the ink and paper

The question often arises why Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Eric Holder and the rest of the race-baiters in the Congressional Black Caucus pay little attention to the fact that 91% of blacks—are killed by other blacks. Every weekend, hundreds of shootings kill or cripple blacks in the hood. Most are children.

I’ll tell why no attention is paid to the latter.

There ain’t no cash in black on black. All of the above really don’t give a rat’s arse how many blacks are murdered as long as they can find a white racist, preferably a cop who’s in the Tea Party, as the perp. Jackpot! Fund-raising explodes—power is maintained—blacks are kept down on the Dem Plantation. Jesse Jackson was rumored to be going door-to-door collecting, while setting up a Dem registration booth very close to where Michael Brown was killed.

In every instance, there are some local playas. Regarding Ferguson, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon made a statement that was a verbal lynching of the white police officer involved in Michael Brown’s death, identified as Darren Wilson. I’d like to know what the MO National Guard, Highway Patrol, Sheriffs and the personal bodyguards of the Governor and those who protect the AG and the President think about this verbal assassination.

A week ago, I told my radio audience that while it looked bad for the police officer we needed to wait. Sure enough, lots of information has come out, some verifiable—some not.

Here’s what we think we know right now:

· Michael Brown had just robbed a store of a package of cigars. When the clerk confronted him Brown pushed the man into a display. When the worker came back at him, Michael, then halfway out the door, turned to face the clerk and walked quickly at him. The man backed off.
· The first encounter between Officer Wilson and the boys occurred when they were walking in the middle of a busy street obstructing traffic within minutes of their strong-arm robbery. He pulled up and instructed them to walk on the sidewalk. They refused, saying they were almost at their destination. Cursing was involved.
· Wilson pulled up and parked. He got a report of the robbery with a description of Michael and the goods. He backed up to Michael and opened his door. Michael ran toward the vehicle and slammed it shut while punching Officer Wilson. There was a struggle for Darren’s gun. A shot went off the vehicle. Later it was reported that Wilson had sustained an orbital blowout fracture of the eye socket. Michael and Dorian ran.
· Injured and dazed, Officer Wilson got out of his car with his gun drawn. He ordered Brown and Jackson to freeze. Brown taunted Wilson and said something to the effect of, you really gonna shoot me? As he said this, Michael turned to face Wilson and bum-rushed him. Wilson fired multiple shots at the charging 6’4”, 300-pounder, hitting him six times. The fatal shot hit at the top of Michael’s head as he was rushing him, killing him immediately.
If this is the case, then it was a legitimate shooting. Sad as it is for the Brown family, justice was carried out. Apparently, Michael Brown picked the wrong guy to bully that day. He didn’t quite get the fact that he wasn’t impervious to bullets.

For all the naysayers in the race-baiting business, I would pose this question: If the man in the car had been President Obama, how many bullets would a bum-rushing Michael Brown have taken from a much less dazed Secret Service team when Brown got within 35 feet?

Maybe our Presdident will spend a little more time shutting down our border and putting boots on the ground to destroy ISIS.

But I doubt it.

It’s still golf season.

Report: Obama waited a month before ordering the James Foley rescue attempt

Hot Air - 

Via Dan Riehl, who wonders if any of the seven rounds of golf O played during that month were less relaxing than usual. Toby Harnden has the scoop:
According to locals, some of the [U.S.] commandos were wearing Jordanian insignia, perhaps to mask their nationality. They entered the buildings and found the prison. But the hostages were not there. The special forces troops had found what they term a “dry hole”…
For President Barack Obama the decision to send in the Night Stalkers was an agonising one. The audacious bin Laden raid in Pakistan had been a success but also preying on his mind was the failed 1980 Delta Force operation to rescue American hostages in Tehran…
Pentagon sources said Foley and the others might well have been rescued but Obama, concerned about the ramifications of US troops being killed or captured in Syria, took too long to authorise the mission.
Anthony Shaffer, a former lieutenant-colonel in US military intelligence who worked on covert operations, said: “I’m told it was almost a 30-day delay from when they said they wanted to go to when he finally gave the green light. They were ready to go in June to grab the guy [Foley] and they weren’t permitted.”   Read More

Exiled Iraqi Archbishop: Muslim Immigration a Threat to Western Christians

Daniel Greenfield - 

This is the difference between innocence...

The Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane, Mark Coleridge, said people should think about what social psychosis was driving some young Muslims to give their lives fighting “on the altar of the demonic’’ for the Islamic State. “The situation needs prayer, action and deep reflection,’’ he said. “The extremists’ barbarism seems apocalyptic. It has nothing to do with real Islam or God and is blasphemy of a kind.’’

Iowa May Cost Dems the Senate

Breitbart - The Hill reports, Democrat party "increasingly worries (Iowa) could be the tipping point for Senate control," as Rep. Bruce Braley continues to mostly fail and now flail in an effort to hold off the surging campaign of Republican Joni Ernst.

Recent polls find a coin-flip race between Braley and Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst(R), and but the national party increasingly worries it could be the tipping point for Senate control. 

“If the Democrats lose Iowa, of course it becomes much harder to keep the majority,” said one national Democratic strategist. “The race could very much go either way. We feel like the worst is behind us and it's moving back towards Bruce Braley. But we know we don't have this wrapped up.”    Read More

Oversight Report: Obama Admin Violated Law by Freeing Taliban

GAO: Congress not legally notified before Obama freed Gitmo inmates

Free Beacon - The Obama administration violated federal law when it released five senior Taliban leaders from prison without notifying Congress, as is legally mandated, according to aninvestigation by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
The GAO concluded in a report issued Thursday that the Obama administration failed to provide proper notification of the Taliban release and illegally used taxpayer funds that were not appropriated to enable the inmate transfer, according to the report.
The Obama administration in May secretly struck a deal with the Taliban in Afghanistan to free from the Guantanamo Bay prison camp in Cuba five of its top leaders in exchange for the return of captured U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, who was later accused by fellow soldiers of having deserted the Army prior to his capture.    Read More

Sierra Leone's Hundreds of Ebola Deaths Traced to One Herbalist Claiming Magical Powers

Breitbart - The spread of the Ebola virus out of Guinea and into Sierra Leone has been traced back to one woman in a remote border village who advertised herself as an herbalist with magical powers that could defeat Ebola. Through encounters with patients crossing the border, the herbalist died, and spread the virus at her funeral to others.

The Agence France-Presse reports that health officials in Sierra Leone have determined precisely where the first individuals carrying the Ebola virus carried it from Guinea into Sierra Leone and why: an herbalist, who has not been named, advertised herself as having special healing properties that could defeat an Ebola infection. The woman died shortly after tending to a number of her clients, and in the process of her funeral, the women tending to her body also contracted the virus.
For some time, AFP reports, the deaths occurred only in rural areas: "The herbalist's mourners fanned out across the rolling hills of the Kissi tribal chiefdoms, starting a chain reaction of infections, deaths, funerals and more infections." But eventually, one of the infected individuals made their way to Kenema, the third largest city in Sierra Leone, with a population of 190,000.     Read More

Obama is Practicing His Far Left Golf Slices, ISIS Their Head Slices

Cynthia Quinn - News flash! Obama had to leave his little balls behind and head to Washington D.C. early Monday for a series of high level, but unspecified meetings. Behind the scenes, it seems the high level Obama meetings included rewriting the teleprompter script for his ventriloquist act with favorite dummy “chatty Joe Biden” and making time for a quick conference with chief counselor in communism, Valerie Jarrett, who when Obama is too far away has “communal collective stress separation anxiety.” Insiders say that Obama was able to calm Valerie down by reminding her that their life long ambition for a borderless America is almost complete and it is time to do a little relaxing and put their feet up, now that the NWO is so close at hand.
Racist and liar Attorney General Eric Holder also briefed Obama on the Ferguson riots. Holder  showed up in Ferguson to make sure that Obama’s gangster, robber, little bro Michael receives the proper treatment. While there, Holder will take time to high five the Black Panthers, communist leaders, ISIS terrorists and Democrat Governor Jay Nixon who has called for the “vigorous prosecution” of officer Darren Wilson. Every thug across America will stop playing their violent video games long enough to hear how Holder intends to race bait and fuel the fire. Then, they will quickly pack up their guns, drugs and knives to make the long trek to Ferguson (they call it “looting tourism”) so they too can join the racist Kumbaya party, flirt with the media, strong arm and blackmail politicians, riot, rob and kill…all for the good of destroying America.
It is also rumored that Obama took precious time away from the golf course to meet with CIA Muslim Director John Brennan. Obama wants to make sure that the United States does not interfere with the beheadings and persecution of Christians around the world, after all, who needs Christians anyway? The Muslim population procreates like a bunch of horny rabbits due to their multiple child marriages and Islam is such a peaceful religion that once all the other religions are eradicated, global peace will abound! Also, after journalist Daniel Pearls beheading back in 2002, beheadings have become so commonplace that when James Foley, a journalist from New Hampshire was beheaded this week, live on Youtube, it was not a featured story….Michael Brown’s abhorrent robbery and resulting race riot has remained in the headlines instead, after all, dividing America into warring factions is such sweet propaganda for the liberal news media!
The Congress and Senate are also enjoying their “August “Recess” and are off to foreign lands…luxurious destinations where they stay for free for “diplomatic reasons” and then charge the entire trip off to the tax payers. That is great news because American’s truly need a break from their oppressive government and Washington D.C. is a great place to visit in August when the elites are not there taking up all the best tables at the area restaurants. So while D.C. is quiet and not paying any attention to national security issues, international terrorism and the persecution of Christian and Jews, I decided to bring you a few insider tidbits that are not being reported right now. It is my wish that the following news flashes will bring a feeling of real hope and change to many American citizens:
Public schools are getting ready for back to school by storing cases of macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets and ice cream contraband in their kitchens so their students and faculty can survive another year of Michelle Obama’s enforced government green diet that is making school a “joyless experience.” Antique text books containing the true story of how America’s Big Brother government has spent the last hundred years trying to ruin the Republic, are now being placed in every student locker along with basic Arithmetic and Dick and Jane (reading) books, the same half century old books that were used to produce some of the brightest and best educated children in the world today! It was also interesting to learn this week that Barack’s two daughters have decided to enroll in a public school system instead of their fancy private digs in Washington D.C.! Their enrollment into dilapidated, insufficient city classrooms that are now inundated with hundreds of illegal, unvaccinated, Spanish speaking only students is vitally necessary so they can fully experience their fathers fulfilled dream of a transformed America. Their experience will one day be journalized in a book entitled “Dreams From My Screwed Up Father” The book will be made out of flammable materials so that when it does not sell,  it may be used at celebration bon fires throughout the nation when Obama retires from office.
Ranchers in Texas have begun to allow the migration of thousands of wild, snaggle-toothed boars…which has significantly cut back the number of Muslim Jihadists crossing our southern borders. The bad news is that it only takes one immigrant Jihadist to blow up a sports stadium and it seems that the news media is more focused on the “politically incorrect” name of the Washington Red Skins….than they are about being beheaded or blown up by a suicidal Muslim terrorist who thinks there are some virgins waiting for him in that intensely tropical place reserved for Muslims called hell. Also, conservatives in Texas have begun to take up a collection to ship ALL illegal immigrants to Washington D.C, which solves multiple problems. For one; the tattooed drug gang members will keep the elite leaders so busy that their focus will not be on screwing us; two, the elite’s will be the guinea pigs for the GMO vaccines being formulated to kill off the many diseases these illegals are bringing into America and, three; illegals deserve the chance to attend private schools and mingle and socialize with the children of the same pro-amnesty humanitarian leaders who feel multiculturalism is the future for America.
I also found out that while Obama is swilling down his butter laden lobster, many Americans are busy this week learning how to skin and cook squirrel and make their own ammunition in their basements. These are the same people who, after watching how successful Obama’s beer summit was, formed their own “Moonshine Summits” deep in the woods to teach the survival skills necessary for patriots to avoid the government sponsored, taxpayer paid, FEMA Hotels, the Auschwitz -style compounds set up to help depopulate the United States so that Martha’s Vineyard and posh places like it do not have to deal with Tea Party tourists anymore, after all, those lines at the Black Dog for their Quahog chowder are just way too long! These Moonshine Summits are also proving useful for tutorials on making your own homemade Moonshine. The instruction comes complete with free tastings that help take the edge off the alarming national security discussions that come up….the same discussions the Obama “situation” team refuses to address. Survival topics that cover such things as; underground bunkers, proper food and water storage and secret back road escape routes in case of Martial Law are commonplace at these meetings. Typewriters and guns are mandatory.
Churches have been taking a lot of vacations as well. The majority are so afraid of losing their non-profit status and of being investigated by the IRS, their clergy are irresponsibly not speaking out against the purging of God here in the states and seem blind to the brutal persecution of Christians taking place around the world. One thing Jesus was not, was a coward, and his brave example seems to be forgotten by most. Also in the news, prisons used to be a great place to preach the Gospel…but now, Islam has become the most rapidly growing religion in prisons and appears to be a much better fit for prisoners serving life for murdering their wives.
Also in the underground news, the Pentagon is busy this week announcing its latest lay-offs of senior officers who do not fit the treasonous Obama mold. You have to give the Top Brass there a lot of credit though….they are very creative when it comes to smuggling the latest shipment of guns to Hamas and keeping it hidden from the public!
I will end with the most encouraging news of the week, which comes from socialist France of all places. In a real act of heroism, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius voiced a message about Iraq for Barack Obama: “Get back to the White House and do something.” Those are profound words considering the fact that our own Congressman and Senators have not even thought to say that…but I almost forgot, they are on vacation too!
Government leaders will be back to Washington D.C., sucking off the system, on September 8th, just in the nick of time for the 13th anniversary of 9/11…and who knows, they may even be “gifted” with a crisis…and savvy politicians never let a good crisis go to waste, do they?
Life with vacationing Obama… sure is a beach!

Islamic State Beheads One American, Promises to Kill Second

Algemeiner - Islamic State terrorists made good Tuesday on threats to kill Americans if President Obama launched airstrikes against terrorist strongholds in Iraq.
Jihadists released a video of an American identified as James Wright Foley, 40, being beheaded while wearing an orange prison-style jumpsuit similar to those worn by detainees as Guantanamo Bay. An “organized gang” had kidnapped Foley – a freelance photojournalist from Rochester, New Hampshire, who was working for Agence France Presse – from an Internet café in Binesh, Syria, on November 22, 2012.
A masked jihadist wearing all black is shown in the graphic video cutting off Foley’s head. The video quickly was taken down.
Twitter post showing an image of the beheading blames President Obama: “Looke (sic) Obama. You Killed this man.”
The video opened with Obama announcing airstrikes against the Islamic State and cuts to a title “A Message to America. ” Foley is shown kneeling next to the jihadist.   Read More

Rand Paul’s Russian Connection - Paul names controversial Kremlin expert foreign policy adviser

Free Beacon - Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) has named as one of his key foreign policy advisers a controversial Russia policy expert with deep ties to the Kremlin.
Dimitri Simes, the president of the Center for the National Interest, and Ambassador Richard Burt, a member of the Center’s board of directors, are recent additions to Paul’s foreign policy advisory team, the senator told National Journal earlier this year.
For years, Simes and the center have provided a sympathetic platform for the Russian government in the heart of the D.C. policy establishment. Its ties to Moscow extend throughout the organization.
The advisory council of the National Interest, the center’s chief publication, includes Alexey Pushkov, a Russian Duma official recently targeted for sanctions by the U.S. government in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.   Read More

Bibi Taking Care Of Business While Bambi Runs Out The Clock

Dave Weinbaum - Friends of mine put forth the premise that leaders have no effect on winning or losing.

I argued the other side, posing a quote from football’s Bum Phillips about fellow
coach Don Shula.
 “He can take his’n and beat your’n and take your’n
and beat his’n.”

Such is the case between President Barack Obama and Israeli Premier, Benjamin 
Netanyahu. There’s obvious dislike between the two leaders, but I believe it was
a surprise to Netanyahu. He was shocked by the pre-hatred bubbling over from
the young American President.

It started in 2010 when Obama treated Netanyahu like a beggar, imprisoning him
in the WH basement while he dined with his family. Before Barack abruptly left the 
meeting, he assigned Bibi a homework problem: How to cope with the death of the 
Jewish State under Obama’s demand that Israel return to 1949 borders. This was to
be a precondition to negotiating a two-state solution with the Palestinians. In a display
of ugliness from Obama, no joint statement or photo op came from the two leaders
upon the Israeli’s departure.

This from a man who bows before Saudi Kings and hosts brutal African 
Dictators in gala style.

Why the animosity from the leaders of countries who represent one of the longest
and productive alliances of the USA? One need only look at their back grounds
to see the similarities and differences:

·         Netanyahu was born in Israel, the first Israeli-born premier. In 1991,
Obama’s publicists, Edward J. Acton and Jane Dystel, claimed Barack was
born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. Musta been a typo.

·         Bibi is Jewish. Obama was the son of a Muslim which—according to
Islam—makes him a Muslim --
 forever. Barack went to Trinity Church for twenty
years under Reverend Jeremiah Wright and has close ties to Nation of Islam head,
Louis Farrakhan and Catholic Priest Father Pfleger.

·         In between schooling Netanyahu served in the IDF in three wars on Israel’s
front lines: The Seven Day War in 1967, the War of Attrition in ’69-70 and the ’73
Yom Kippur conflict. He was shot in the shoulder during a military incursion in 1972
and fought in various other battles between wars. Bibi was a team leader in an elite
Israeli special forces team. Obama did not serve in the US military.

·         Bibi worked as a consultant for the Boston Consulting Group from 1976-1978 
where he was a colleague of Mitt Romney. Barack taught Constitutional law and
became a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago.

·         Netanyahu entered politics in 1982, was Israel’s Ambassador to the UN for
four years.Amongst other offices, he was elected premier three times. He served
from ’96 til ’99, 2009 ‘til 2013 and was again elected in 2013.

·         Obama ran for state senator in IL, then US Senator in 2004. Barack won
the US Presidency in 2008 and 2012.

·         Barack forced the abandonment of Iraq without leaving residual troops. 
Netanyahu resigned from the Israeli government when Ariel Sharon removed all
the Jews out of Gaza.

·         Obama’s current approval ratings are 40%. Netanyahu is at over 90%.


·         Obama was educated in two countries, Indonesia and the US. Bin was
educated in Israel and the USA. Netanyahu went to grade school in Israel and high 
school in Philadelphia where he was on the debate team.

·         Both had extensive university educations. Obama has a Law Degree from
Harvard and attended Occidental and Columbia Colleges. Netanyahu has degrees
in Architecture from MIT, a Master’s in management from MIT Sloan School of 
Management. While there, he attended Harvard—studying political science.

·         Binyamin lost his older brother, Yonatan to Palestinian terrorists during
Israel’s Raid on Entebbe. Over 100 hostages were saved in Uganda. Obama
lost his mother to cancer and father to a drunk-driving crash in Kenya. Obama
senior had abandoned JR. soon after he was born, coming back to visit for a
short time when Barack was eight.

Netanyahu has first-hand knowledge of the challenges of terror and the resulting
wars. Bibi is an expert in the field. Obama doesn’t have a 
smidgeon of the
knowledge the Israeli Premier has and spent much of his first year apologizing to
Muslims for America, on their soil.

One can also conclude that Obama relegates Israel’s Netanyahu to the despised 
colonialists of his father’s Kenya. Barack returned a bust of Churchill to English 
diplomats. This was a gift to America, presented to President Bush intended to
sit in the White House forever.

The English were not amused.
Obama is a new-age golfer. He got a holistic-in-oneSince Obama takes a lot of vacations, has a plethora of four to five hour golf
outings and gives a record amount of fundraising speeches, by the power vested
in me as a pundit with at least some common sense, I recommend that the eminently 
MORE qualified Binyamin Netanyahu sit in for the President. Thus, while Barack 
disengages from a world who even his own Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel
claimed was “…blowing up all around us,” at least we’ll know the best interests
of America will be served—that is—until President Obama returns.

Wonder what Bum Phillips would think.

ISIS message to America: ‘we will drown all of you in blood’

Al Arabiya - The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group that has seized large parts of Iraq and drawn the first American air strikes since the end of the occupation in 2011 has warned the United States it will attack Americans “in any place” if the raids hit its militants.

The video, which shows a photograph of an American who was beheaded during the U.S. occupation of Iraq and victims of snipers, featured a statement which said in English “we will drown all of you in blood.”
U.S. airstrikes on Kurdish forces in northern Iraq have helped the fighters take back some territory captured by ISIS militants, who have threatened to march on Baghdad.   Read More

'Breakthrough' Reported in Cairo Talks; Deal 'Initialed'

Arab newspaper says ceasefire may be extended before it expires at midnight. Netanyahu threatens harsh retaliation against Hamas.

Arutz Sheva - The Israeli and Palestinian teams to Cairo ceasefire talks have signed their initials to a permanent ceasefire agreement, according to an unconfirmed report by Bethlehem-based Ma'an news.

Meanwhile, sources close to the Palestinian delegation in Cairo told the Al Qudsnewspaper Monday night that there has been a breakthrough in the talks that may make it possible to extend the ceasefire even before it expires at midnight tonight.

"The Egyptian mediator played an important role in the breakthrough,” the sources said, “in refusing the new Israeli demands through which Israel reinforced its objection to the Egyptian initiative.”

There has been no confirmation of this report from any other source.

The Al Mayadeen network reported, meanwhile, that the Israeli delegation returned to Israel and that neither side is interested in renewing the fighting, so the ceasefire that began Thursday is expected to hold.   Read More

Ebola: Austria Takes Precautionary Measures After British Woman Dies

Breitbart - The Austrian Federal Ministry of Health is taking precautionary measures in the Eastern municipality of Vomp in Tyrol after a British woman recently returned from Ebola-hotspot Nigeria died unexpectedly.

The body of the 48-year old, who had also recently traveled through Germany and Austria was found in her flat on Saturday night. Due to her recent travels in West Africa, and because her medical records were not available the local government took the decision to approach the death as potentially linked to Ebola.
According to The Local’s Austrian edition it is considered that Ebola is an unlikely cause of death, but the body has been placed under quarantine and staff performing tests have been equipped with medical HAZMAT suits. Although there is no known cure and it is almost always leathal, compared to other potential pandemic diseases and infections, Ebola is one of the least infectious.  Read More

Pope Endorses Use of Force to Stop Islamic Militants; May Personally Go to Northern Iraq

CNSNews - ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE (AP) — Pope Francis on Monday endorsed the use of force to stop Islamic militants from attacking religious minorities in Iraq but said the international community — and not just one country — should decide how to intervene.
Francis also said he and his advisers were considering whether he might go to northern Iraq himself to show solidarity with persecuted Christians. But he said he was holding off for now on a decision.
In other comments to journalists returning from South Korea, Francis confirmed he hoped to travel to the United States in September 2015 for a possible three-city tour: to attend a family rally in Philadelphia and to address Congress in Washington and the United Nations in New York. He said a Mexico stop on that trip was possible but not decided yet. He also said he might make one-day visit to Spain next year.   Read More
