    The Army has charged Bowe Bergdahl with desertion and has referred to an Article 32 military preliminary hearing which is the military version of a grand jury. Their job is to determine whether the charges against Bergdahl are sufficient for a court-martial trial or whether they should be dropped altogether. The court proceedings will be held at joint base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The charges filed against Bergdahl under The Uniform Code of Military Justice are articles 85 and 99. Article 85 – Desertion. Definition: Any member of the armed forces who, without authority, goes or remains absent from...

    During his indoctrination into the “Religion of Peace” Bowe Bergdahl, who has now been charged with desertion, was taught about the Islamic way of life. Here is what Islam says about various topics. TORTURE Qur’an 5-33 says, “The punishment for those who wage war against Allah and His Prophet and make mischief in the land, is to murder them, crucify them, or cut off a hand and foot on opposite sides…their doom is dreadful. They will not escape the fire, suffering constantly.” TERRORISM Qur’an:8:12 “Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: ‘I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them...
  • OBAMA SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH THE MOST EXTREME APPOINTEES IN AMERICAN HISTORY - Obama's Czars

    Western Journalism ^ | Undated | Steve Baldwin
    Much has been written about Obama’s controversial appointments, not only to the federal bench, but to key cabinet positions, as well as to the unaccountable (and probably unconstitutional) “Czar” positions. Much of the criticism has dwelled on the Obama administration’s lack of vetting when filling these rolls—but that’s not the issue. To the contrary, the Obama team did investigate thoroughly and they choose precisely. When an administration repeatedly nominates hard-left individuals, it’s not a vetting error—it’s a pattern. We should not allow the media to portray these appointments as a series of errors; but rather, we need to realize that...

    Who determines a presidents competency or otherwise ‘incapacity’. Could congress instigate a special form of impeachment not meant to remove from office, but force him for a psychiatric evaluation and drug testing? Then a real impeachment is an option for removal? Wouldn’t that stick to his underwear and make him feel uncomfortable.

    In the bad old days of New York City, the mob would decide the price of erecting a building regardless of who was planning to do it. Years after the construction of One Police Plaza, the City’s Police Headquarters, when the ceiling of the main floor started to fall down an investigation found that the mob had sold the city substandard concrete. They didn’t care who they ripped off. Hard work led by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani broke the grip of the mob on New York’s construction industry and for years afterward construction boomed because of the reduced costs of...

    Once the truck stopped, two armed men stormed the cab, announced themselves as “Policia” and placed traffic cones near the truck’s trailer section. The armed men, who witnesses said spoke Spanish, restrained those in the truck and then led them into the woods. They then stole approximately $4.9 million in gold bars from the trailer and sped off in a white van. Nearly five million dollars in gold was stolen during a shipment from Miami to Boston. Now the FBI in Miami has released sketches of the two men who pulled off the gold heist in hopes that someone recognizes...

The series centered on FBI agents Scully, played by Gillian Anderson, and Mulder, played by David Duchovny. Both stars will be reprising their roles for the reboot. “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Chris Carter, creator and executive producer of...

    Driving through Naypyidaw, the purpose-built capital of Burma, it could be easy to forget that you’re in the middle of one of south-east Asia’s poorest countries. On either side of the street, a seemingly endless series of giant detached buildings, villa-style hotels and shopping malls look like they have fallen from the sky, all painted in soft pastel colours: light pink, baby blue, beige. The roads are newly paved and lined with flowers and carefully pruned shrubbery. Meticulously landscaped roundabouts boast large sculptures of flowers. The scale of this surreal city is difficult to describe: it extends an estimated 4,800...

We are confronted here by a confusing swirl of lies and scandals, so let’s start with a quick summary. Georgia officials insist on using the worst theories and methods. Predictably their schools get bad results. To cover up the embarrassing results (of course, the officials would not think of adopting better methods), the schools create elaborate cheating mechanisms. This works until the truth leaks out. Scandal ensues. Cheating scandals occur throughout the...

Now it appears that United States Postal Inspection Service, the USPS’ own law enforcement agency has also, at least at one post office in Colorado, been collecting similar data from drivers. Though the device had apparently been operating for at least a few months, within an hour of Chris Halsne, of Denver’s...

It is, however, coming to an end and the reason is a Republican-controlled Congress responding to the countless businesses and individuals being ravaged by a ruthless bureaucracy driven by an environmental agenda determined to deprive America of the energy sources vital to our lives and the nation’s existence.

City sanitation workers who find garbage cans filled with aging lettuce, leftover pizza or even the box it came in are slapping on bright red tags to inform the offending household (and, presumably, the whole neighborhood) that the city’s new composting law has been violated. San Francisco may have been the first city to make its citizens compost food, but Seattle is the first to punish people with a fine if they don’t.

An information vacuum has nourished a cottage industry of experts and amateurs in cyberspace who continue to exhaustively pick the case apart in a bid to find out just what happened to the plane and its 239 passengers and crew. The resulting theories range from the wild - alien abduction, MH370 and its doomed fleetmate MH17 were the same plane - to sober, science-based arguments...

    Apple Pay is so secure criminals so far have only been able take advantage of it by taking advantage of the banks behind it. Sadly, identity theft and credit card fraud are nothing new. While Apple Pay does an enormous amount to secure the transaction process itself — merchants are given a one-time number instead of the card number to prevent expose in the case of data breach, for example — securing the banking process against basic social engineering attacks is something else entirely. When reached for comment, Apple told me: "Apple Pay is designed to be extremely secure and...
  • VANITY: Why I believe the Clinton E-Mail scandal is her doom

    That the New York Times broke this story on Hillary running State through off-the-record e-mail systems/servers is quite telling. Team Obama does not want Hillary succeeding Barack. He sees Elizabeth Warren as a much more worthy successor to his revolution. Besides Obama detests Sid Vicious Blumenthal. That Hillary was using him as her de facto deputy at State must enrage Obama since Obama specifically dictated that Blumenthal is to have ZERO official dealings with HIS administration. This scandal has legs specifically because El Jefe Obama wants it to. Hillary is in DEEP Kim Chee. Your thoughts?
  • “FREAK” flaw undermines security for Apple and Google users, researchers discover

    Technology companies are scrambling to fix a major security flaw that for more than a decade left users of Apple and Google devices vulnerable to hacking when they visited millions of supposedly secure Web sites, including Whitehouse.gov, NSA.gov and FBI.gov. The flaw resulted from a former U.S. government policy that once forbid the export of strong encryption and required that weaker “export-grade” products be shipped to customers in other countries, say the researchers who discovered the problem. These restrictions were lifted in the late 1990s, but the weaker encryption got baked into widely used software that proliferated around the world...

    "The Speaker can not be unmindful of the fact, as evidenced by three previous elections to the Speakership, that in the past he has enjoyed the confidence of the Republican Party of the country and of the Republican Members of the House; but the assault upon the Speaker of the House by the minority, supplemented by the efforts of the so-called insurgents, shows that the Democratic minority, aided by a number of so-called insurgents, constituting 15 per cent of the majority party in the House, is now in the majority, and that the Speaker of the House is not in...

    In 2004, an obscure Illinois State Legislator named Barack Hussein Obama, rose to international prominence after speaking at the Democratic National Convention in Boston, Massachussetts. The day Obama gave the speech was July 27, 2004, Tish B'Av (9th of Av), the Jewish historical day of calamity and mourning. The day in history that most Jewish calamities have started (partial list below): 421BCE - Destruction of First Temple by the Babylonians (about 100,000 Jews killed during invasion) 70AD - Destruction of Second Temple by Romans (Over 2,500,000 Jews die as a result of war, famine and disease). 132 - Bar Kochba...

    As part of the White House response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, President Barack Obama emphasized the importance of preventing access to guns “for those who would commit acts of violence.” In order to accomplish that objective, the Administration announced that it would engage the regulatory process to close loopholes in the background check system for purchasing firearms.
