  • Protesters Blocked from Delivering a Petition to Release Saudi Blogger

    06/11/2015 4:29:30 PM PDT · by BBell · 1 replies
    A group of activists, organized by CODEPINK and the Gulf Institute, protested outside of the Saudi Arabian embassy on Thursday. Led by CODEPINK Co-founder Medea Benjamin, they attempted to deliver a petition demanding the release of liberal blogger Raif Badawi. Benjamin demands the immediate release of Badawi. “[the government] must respect free speech," Benjamin told News2Share. "I think if there was one phone call from President Obama that said, 'free Raif Badawi,' Raif would be free." Upon entering the embassy, the protesters were forcefully removed. The protesters continued to picket outside the embassy chanting, “no flogging for blogging” and “journalism...

    The Obama administration gave the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl extraordinary insider access to the military’s hunt for their son by having them take part in a series of secure video conferences with senior commanders as well as White House and State Department officials. A former government official involved in American hostage issues said he had never heard of giving a family such access and questioned whether sensitive information could have been conveyed to Robert and Jani Bergdahl and somehow leaked out. A family spokesman said he knows of no such breach. Soon after Sgt. Bergdahl went missing in...
  • Anti-Israel protesters stage sit-in amid Netanyahu visit (Code Pink Psychos back Iranian bomb)

    Anti-Israel protesters donned Benjamin Netanyahu masks and smeared their hands with fake blood for a Sunday sit-in against the Israeli prime minister in Washington. Activists led by the radical CODEPINK group demonstrated outside the pro-Israel AIPAC lobby’s annual conference at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. In addition to the masks, many protesters wore black-and-white “keffiyeh” scarves to give themselves a distinctly Arab look. The protesters were expected to return Monday, when Netanyahu is scheduled to address the conference. Netanyahu — who opposes a pending nuclear deal with Iran — is in the United States for a scheduled Tuesday address...

    The nasty weather didn’t stop a group of around 60 anti-Israel activists from storming the steps of the Washington Convention Center and blocking at least one entrance to the conference grounds. Code Pink and other anti-Israeli groups went into a frenzy against AIPAC, the “Israel lobby,” and what they believe is the “Apartheid” State of Israel. I also saw harassment of men, women, and children who had done nothing to deserve it except make the mistake of revealing their conference badge before they reached the door. Those who were obviously religious Jews (based on their head coverings, clothing, and...

    Did anyone see Medea Benjamin on O'Reilly tonight? She of course blamed GWB for the Jordanian pilot's execution. She said we never should have gone into Iraq in the first place. Then she said our interventionist policies in Egypt and Libya cause ISIS to act the way they do. I wanted to smack BOR for not pointing out it was OBAMA and his ARAB SPRING interventions that funded and otherwise supported the uprisings in Egypt and Libya.

    Beginning way back in 2002, we wrote about International A.N.S.W.E.R., a Communist organization that was founded in September 2001 and that organized substantial antiwar demonstrations during the Bush administration. A.N.S.W.E.R. embodied within itself the seeming contradiction between the far left and Islamic extremism: it enthusiastically supported both Kim il Jung and Saddam Hussein, and is directed in part by the Muslim Student Association. Our earliest posts on A.N.S.W.E.R. have been lost in our various database moves; the first one that survives is this brief post from January 2003.

    United States military and intelligence officials are still piecing together what happened early Saturday that sabotaged an attempt to rescue two hostages from al Qaeda in Yemen. Despite being ready with a roughly 40-man special operations team and days to plan the operation, U.S. photojournalist Luke Somers and South African teacher Pierre Korki both died shortly after the midnight raid. The key problem, officials told the Wall Street Journal, came when some kind of sound alerted militants who were holding the hostages that the special operations team was nearby. The militants were part of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula,...

In a 41-page opinion Friday, U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer offered some critical words for the Obama administration’s handling of the case while still concluding the relatives couldn’t pursue damage remedies from administration officials. “(Officials) must be trusted and expected to act in accordance with the U.S. Constitution when they intentionally target a U.S. citizen abroad at the direction of the President and with the concurrence of Congress,” Collyer wrote. “They cannot be held personally...

    As President Barack Obama launches air strikes in Syria, anti-war activists are frustrated that he is getting a pass from groups traditionally opposed to military intervention. According to the Washington Post, only 22 anti-war activists protested near the White House this week, and "it was the latest display of how Obama has neutralized the left." Left-wing activist David Swanson, "who voted for Obama in 2008 before switching to the Green Party," told the Post that "if George W. Bush were launching wars with Congress out of town, oh, it would be flooded." But he said liberals give Obama a pass...

    Secretary of State John Kerry didn’t appear before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to lay out an offensive strategy for defeating ISIS. Instead his real mission was a defensive strategy to protect Obama from critics on the right and the left. Obama’s delayed strategy hasn’t won over liberals and conservatives. It certainly hasn’t won over the American people. For the first time, Obama’s counterterrorism policy no longer has the support of a majority of Americans. Americans don’t believe that Obama can keep them safe. They suspect that he’s just trying to protect the last shreds of his fading popularity by...

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said early Friday that it was “appropriate that the President authorized airstrikes against [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] should they threaten U.S. personnel and other interests in Erbil or elsewhere in Iraq.” “As the President reiterated, there is no American military solution to the situation in Iraq,” she said. “Defeating ISIS will require Iraq’s leaders to see beyond their divisions...

Before feminism was hijacked by militant activists such as Code Pink, and yes, even the heralded NOW, it was designed to empower, support, and defend the rights of women regardless of their personal lives and attributes. Now, no pun intended, it is a twisted political platform that discriminates against women who don’t adhere to a malformed stereotype of what progressives deem as worthy of their ‘cause’. Today’s feminist cults pick and choose whom they defend, they maliciously incite discord and tarnish lives with imagined...

    Susan 'Medea' Benjamin threatened to “make a scandal” against the government of Egypt if she was deported. Sure enough as Egypt enforced the deportation order against Benjamin on Tuesday she took to Twitter and then the radio and other forms of media to accuse the Egyptian government of brutally beating her and breaking her arm. “Help. They broke my arm. Egypt police.” Benjamin tweeted from Cairo. Benjamin’s inflammatory charge was reported by sympathetic U.S. media outlets from the AP and Reuters to the New York Times, CNN, Huffington Post and Democracy Now!

    Recently, The New American has reported on the efforts by radio talk show host Mark Levin and others to push for a constitutional convention (a convention of the states, in the parlance of the proponents). In his new book, Levin argues that such a convention is the last hope “to reform the federal government from its degenerate, bloated, imperial structure back to its (smaller) republican roots.” Unfortunately, many otherwise well-educated and well-meaning conservatives have succumbed to Levin’s siren song and they have gone so far as to deny the constitutionality of nullification and to insist that an Article V convention...
