“This time we hope the cease-fire will stick.”
Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev after Hamas accepted the Egyptian cease-fire deal they previously had rejected
Gotta love Egyptian President el-Sisi for brokering a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas and doing so without consulting Obama…and you gotta love him for declining all Obama’s many invitations to visit the U.S., instead choosing to go to Russia to meet and talk with Vladimir Putin to discuss cooperation between Russia and Egypt, to discuss the Gaza crisis, to discuss the situation in Iraq and Libya, and of course to discuss the growing threat that is ISIS.

This is the sort of thing one expects to see in places like the former Soviet Union or Nazi Germany, not the United States. Unfortunately, now that Barack Obama is president, we’re seeing more and more of this kind of “worship.”
A picture posted to Twitter Tuesday morning is said to be of an Obama propaganda poster posted in front of a classroom at Herriman High School in Herriman, Utah.
The news of the indictment against Texas Governor Rick Perry on charges of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public official surprised the country and shook up the early presidential race for 2016. Debate ranged from how the charges would affect Perry’s chances at winning the Republican nomination and the White House to whether Perry would be convicted. A surprising number of liberals and Democrats have broken ranks to defend what many call an unconstitutional attempt to criminalize politics as usual. This is not the first time in recent memory that prosecutors have pressed charges against Republicans on dubious grounds. This harassment of conservatives is likely to worsen in the absence of penalties for malicious prosecution.
In Texas, the Travis County DA office has prosecuted other high profile Republicans. In 1993, Rosemary Lemberg’s predecessor, Ronnie Earle, indicted newly elected U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison on charges of misusing her previous office of state treasurer according to National Review. Hutchison was originally elected in a special election and faced the prospect of running for reelection in 1994 with the indictment hanging over her head. She pressed for a quick resolution and, when the case went to trial, Earle told the court that he could not proceed without the admission of records seized from Hutchison’s office without a search warrant. The judge promptly ordered the jury to return a verdict of not guilty.
A handful of billionaires now including Bill and Melinda Gates have donated big money to pass a gun control initiative in Washington state.
Published reports that Bill and Melinda Gates have donated $1 million to the Initiative 594 gun control campaign in Washington State has fired up the grassroots gun rights activists who are now making it clear they are not about to be beaten by billionaires who have expensive security.
Gun rights activists are alarmed and furious over what they consider is a blatant effort by a handful of wealthy elitists to buy an election. I-594 is an 18-page gun control measure that is largely supported by big money residents of ten Seattle-area zip codes.
The measure being pushed by the Seattle-based Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility, which has raised more than $6 million. It would require background checks on all firearms transfers, not just sales, and the list of exemptions is narrowly tailored.
In addition to Gates, other Microsoft alumni Paul Allen and Steve Ballmer have kicked in small fortunes. Gun rights activists are beginning to wonder why passing this measure is so important. Continue reading →

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, has backtracked on his previously issued statement that we must take out ISIS in Syria, and now says that he will NOT recommend U.S. military air strikes against ISIS in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S.
Uh…excuse me but didn’t Dempsey just sit alongside Defense Secretary…and known muslim sympathizer…Chuck Hagel a few short days ago in a joint press briefing, and agree with Hagel when he said ISIS is an “imminent threat to every interest we have” and that ISIS is “beyond anything that we’ve seen.” Yeah…he did.

It’s being reported that heavily-armed female fighters have joined in the fight with the men of the Turkish Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) against ISIS. These women soldiers from the PKK are on the hunt for ISIS militants who kidnapped 3,000 innocent women and girls in Iraq.
The girls and women kidnapped by ISIS, over the past two weeks, will either be forced into marriage, sold as sex slaves or shot if they refuse to convert to Islam. All these aspects are undoubtedly terrifying to these innocent women and girls.
The federal government is spending nearly $1 million on a database designed to track “hate” and “misinformation” on Twitter, the Washington Free Beacon said.
The person running the project is Filippo Menczer, a professor of informatics and computer science at Indiana University. According to the Free Beacon, Menczer “proclaims his support for numerous progressive advocacy groups, including President Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action, Moveon.org, Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, Amnesty International, and True Majority.”
I sometimes wonder if Charlie Rangel’s mother ever had any kids that lived.
For the millionth time, the New York Democrat falsely claimed that the Tea Party is descendent from the Confederacy. He also claims — falsely — that opposition to Obama is based on race. In short, when Rangel has no facts, he falls back on the old race card…
Containment...Obama wants containment and NOTHING more. Guess what…containment will NOT work…will NOT work with the likes of ISIS.
As Iraq is awash in the blood of ISIS victims…as the Israel/Hamas conflict has Israel holding back from doing what needs to be done…as our southern border continues to be breached while this president plays golf…yet another hot spot has started to heat up…again…but this time its ramifications could reach worldwide.
