    Following are excerpts from an address by Egyptian cleric in exile Wagdi Ghoneim, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on March 11, 2012. Wagdi Ghoneim : Our enemies are keeping our youth busy with nonsense, in order to turn them into idiotic fools. They wrote it all down in a book called The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. We call it The Protocols of the Ignorant Elders of Zion – we don't call them "learned" because they are not. […] The [Israelis] enter Egypt without a visa, bringing with them drugs.

    Mitt and Ann Romney are exceptionally gracious people. Even though they are on the road they constantly have taken time to put pen to paper to write to Andrew Sullivan and Tina Brown expressing their gratitude for their efforts on behalf of the Romney campaign. Right Turn has come into possession of the letter. Well, actually we made it up, but this what they should be writing in recognition of the Newsweek cover that will go down as the single most helpful in-kind donation to the Romney camp this cycle. Dear Mr. Sullivan and Ms. Brown: Ann and I...

    President Obama recently announced he was in favor of “Gay Marriage” but added that it was up to the 50 states to decide. He simultaneously did not mention his position on the repeal of the 1996 Federal law called “The Defense of Marriage Act” (DOMA – Codified in 1 USC Sec. 7 & 28 USC Sec. 1738C). DOMA permits each state to ignore the acts and laws of other states when it comes to recognizing “Gay Marriages” in other states. It also states with respect to all Federal laws and statutes that “marriage” would be defined as only between a...

    Newly released, declassified files from the United Kingdom reveal U.S.officials' concerns that Kenyans studying in America, including President Obama's father, may have had ties to Kenyan terrorist groups that were supported by communist nations in the 1950s and early 1960s. As yet the documents exist only in physical form at the National Archives in Kew, Southwest London – but they are open to the public, a British police source told the Law Enforcement Examiner on Sunday. The declassified documents, which had been kept secret for decades, "were privately condemned by Obama administration officials," a British source told the Law Enforcement...

    No more slow-walking Fast and Furious probeJustice has waited long enough. It’s time to pull the trigger on contempt charges against Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. for withholding documents from Congress in the Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal. Allowing further delay would only confirm what many Americans suspect: There is one set of laws for bureaucrats and another for the rest of us. Congress has been waiting since October 2011 for Mr. Holder to comply fully with a subpoena seeking records in 22 categories of information about the federal firearms-smuggling operation. The attorney general has provided some material...

    Pentagon Opens 14,000 Jobs To Women By Kristina Wong May 14, 2012 Staff Sgt. Marie Martinson, one of two female bomb techs in the 88th Air Base Wing Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, is seen here in Afghanistan with a robot pack beside her. (U.S. Army) Pentagon policies bar Staff Sgt. Marie Martinson from direct ground combat, but she nonetheless has taken on the No. 1 killer of troops in Afghanistan: improvised explosive devices, or IEDs. What’s more, disabling and dismantling roadside bombs is a job she loves. “Defeating enemy IEDs? There’s a...

    Scooping up dollars for his campaign at a New York fundraiser, President Barack Obama told supporters on Monday that "the American people are on our side" when it comes to issues like same-sex marriage. The president spoke at an event hosted by openly gay singer Ricky Martin, the LGBT Leadership Council and the Futuro Fund, where he tied his announced support for gay marriage last week to past civil rights struggles. "We have never gone wrong when we expanded rights and responsibilities to everybody," the president said to cheers from the audience. "That doesn't weaken families, that strengthens families. It's...

    (CNN) -- Jay-Z may not be "a huge fan of the [political] system," but the rapper remains a firm supporter of President Barack Obama. The rapper said Monday in an interview with CNN's Poppy Harlow he knows little of GOP contender Mitt Romney, and considers Obama's announcement of support for states legalizing same-sex marriages to be a political plus. "I've always thought it as something that was still, um, holding the country back," Jay-Z said of not allowing same-sex coupled to wed. "What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you...

    LEWISTON, Idaho – A man said he reached down to pick up a stick lying in the gardening aisle of a Wal-Mart in Idaho, only to discover that it was a rattlesnake that then bit his hand. Mica Craig said he was shopping in the outdoor garden department of a Lewiston store when he was bitten Saturday. The 47-year-old man from Clarkston, Wash., says it latched onto his hand and that he screamed and managed to shake loose the snake and stomped it to death. The Lewiston Tribune reports a bystander drove Craig to a local emergency room. Craig said...

    Behind closed and locked doors, radio commentator Rush Limbaugh was inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians today in a private ceremony in the Missouri House of representatives. In an event announced about 25 minutes before it began and not opened to the general public, Limbaugh’s bust was unveiled before a group made up mostly of Republican lawmakers, along with their staff, Limbaugh’s family and at least two political candidates – U.S. Senate hopeful Sarah Steelman and incumbant Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder, who also spoke at the event. Highway Patrolmen guarded the entrances to the House Chamber. Inductees to the...

    If anyone reading this owns a ZTE Score M Android smartphone, your device has been found to include a backdoor allowing root access without user authentication.The discovery of the backdoor comes via a post on the text storage website Pastebin. It has since been confirmed via Reddit by Justin Case of Cunning Logic and TeamAndIRC. He has confirmed with someone at ZTE that the backdoor does indeed exist and that a fix is in the works.The question that needs to be asked is, why is it there at all?Apparently the handset includes a hard-coded password that allows access to a...

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Eddie Vega has been homeless for a year. He was waiting for a bus one day last week when a police officer rolled up to ask what he was doing and where he was headed. Vega said it’s the kind of subtle harassment that happens all the time. “I get the looks,” said the 31-year-old Providence man, squinting because he recently lost his glasses in a fight that also left him with stiches on his forehead. “It’s the same hassle everywhere. Happens every day. There’s nothing you can do. You speak up and you get in...

    Obama: Same-Sex Marriage Rights Would 'Strengthen Families' By Kathleen Hennessey May 14, 2012 Extending marriage rights to gays and lesbians would "strengthen families," President Obama told a group of donors at a New York fundraiser on Monday. Speaking at a glitzy event attended by actress Eva Longoria and after an introduction by Ricky Martin, Obama added his recently revealed views on same-sex marriage to his typical stump speech. Obama said he believes all people are "equal in terms of dignity and in terms of respect." "I want everyone treated fairly in this country," Obama told donors gathered at the Rubin...

    The weighted sample of registered voters: 36D/30R/34I, which is right in line with most national polls.Maybe Karl was right about that “turning point.”The bombshell number, obviously, is Romney leading O by two among women. If that happens on election day, rest assured that the overall margin will be a lot wider than three points. So what's driving the sudden Mittmania? It's probably not the economy: Most Americans (67 percent) believe the economy is in bad shape, but respondents expressed the most optimism on that issue since January 2008 – months before the economic crisis was in full swing. Thirty-two percent...

    Hypocrisy: While the president blasts Mitt Romney's private equity successes, he happily takes private equity campaign cash. If this election becomes "the company fixer" vs. "the economy wrecker," Obama is in big trouble. How you made your money is evil, but to get re-elected president I'm happy to take lots of cash others made in the same way. That, in essence, is Barack Obama's message in condemning Mitt Romney's many years of work fixing and saving major employers through private equity financing — while having another private equity maestro deliver carts of booty to Obama's own campaign. On Monday, in...
