    """"Trump’s First Military Attack Backs CIA & DIA; Agents Said Obama Ignored Intel, Refused to Strike Critical ISIS Targets For Over a Year"""" President Barack Obama refused to strike high-ranking ISIS assets in Iraq and Syria for more than a year despite regular pleading from the CIA and DIA personnel to act on definitive intelligence, officials confirmed to True Pundit. Newly minted President Donald Trump, to the delight of defense analysts, gave new Defense Secretary James Mattis the green light to wage more than 30 attacks on these same ISIS targets on Saturday, according to intelligence insiders. What Obama had...

    Leading Dutch politician Geert Wilders has criticized US president Barack Obama for not vetoing the Security Council resolution against Israel on Friday and advised Israel to ignore the UN resolution. Wilders, the founder and leader of the Dutch Freedom Party, who has dominated Dutch polls during the year of 2016, wrote on his Facebook page:"Obama betrayed Israel. Thank God for Trump. My advise to my Israeli friends: ignore the UN and keep building more and more settlements." Wilders was voted politician of the year 2016 when 40,000 people participated in the annual public election held by Dutch TV-show ‘EenVandaag’. He...

  • Leicestershire police 'ignore' attempted burglaries at odd-numbered houses

    08/05/2015 8:48:03 AM PDT · by GoneSalt · 14 replies ^ | 8/5/2015 | BBC Staff
    Attempted break-ins at odd-numbered houses were not fully investigated by one police force as part of an experiment to save money. Leicestershire Police said the pilot scheme had had no adverse effect on public satisfaction or crime rates. Results of the three-month trial are being evaluated and could see it rolled out throughout the East Midlands. Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Clive Loader said he was unaware of the idea but would have advised against it. Due to cuts in central government funding, the force has cut Ł33.9m - about 17% of the entire budget - over the four years...

    To maintain, as does Dr. Frieden, that stopping travel to the U.S. from the few countries where Ebola is running rampant would somehow harm us is illogical to the point of absurdity. And it is now clear to every other sentient being that Ebola is far more contagious, and deadly, than AIDS, to which Dr. Frieden compared Ebola. The latest nugget is that Amber Vinson, the second Dallas nurse diagnosed with Ebola, called the CDC numerous times before boarding her flight from Cleveland back to Dallas and was told it was OK for her to fly because her fever did...

The Knesset’s Science and Technology Committee discussed the decision and its implications for Israel and the world. Committee head MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) expressed the opinion that all such boycotts are a bad idea. “There is no place for an academic boycott or for any involvement of politics in academia,” he declared. “It’s important for Israel, but no less so, this principle is important for the advancement of humanity,” he continued. “Political debate should take place...

Livni, who spoke at a special conference marking Quality Government Day, said that the Palestinian Authority with whom she is negotiating is not behind the terror attack. "Those who tried to harm us today are not those with whom we are conducting or will conduct negotiations," she insisted. “We will not allow criminal terrorists to determine Israel's future.

    Just as Republican leaders were exiting their meeting with President Obama at the White House Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was entering CNN's Crossfire, where he had to contend with Van Jones and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), without too much help from Newt Gingrich. Now that House Republicans are prepared to move forward with a short-term debt deal that doesn't touch the Affordable Care Act, Jones asked Cruz, "Do you feel like you owe your party an apology?" Jones noted that the Republican Party has become incredibly unpopular under Cruz's "leadership," saying that since the Texas senator entered office in...

Byers writes: So often conservative media, like conservative media criticism, can't be taken seriously because it overplays its hand. Like someone who shouts "thief!" the second his keys go missing, much of the conservative echo-chamber has a hyper-aggressive penchant to see conspiracy where they'd do better to see questions in need of answers.

    IRS-Gate: From stonewalling Congress to Federal Election Commission collusion to harassment of already-tax-exempt conservative groups, the IRS scandal metastasizes. Someone high-up was clearly giving orders. 'Phony scandals," to use President Obama's term, should not generate near-daily news coverage from a media that would like nothing better than to see its dream president let off the hook. Yet everywhere you look comes another bolt of lightning keeping this Frankenstein monster "alive!": • In addition to conservative organizations being ultra-scrutinized in applying for tax-exempt status, existing conservative groups like Morton Blackwell's Leadership Institute, around since 1979, and the Claire Booth Luce Policy...

    The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police. Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport. “We will not be issuing detainers...

    1. Based on an agreement with the founder of his order, Fr. Corapi established a Montana-based media business under his financial control. 2. At some point, Fr. Corapi pays several persons who have business dealings with him to sign non-disclosure agreements regarding events during their term of employment. 3. There is a falling-out with one non-disclosure signer, an employee (presumably 2 occurred before 3, though this is not absolute). 4. The disgruntled signer from 3 complained to religious or ecclesiastical superiors (specifically: the current bishop of Corpus Christi), alleging sexual and drug-related charges against Fr. Corapi. 5.

    Gov. Jerry Brown is expected in coming days to sign a bill requiring that 33 percent of the state’s electricity come from renewable sources by 2020, much more than the present requirement of 20 percent. This is by far the most ambitious plan of any state, spurred by a determination to reduce the emissions that contribute to global warming and to stop sending billions of dollars each year to oil-producing nations with troubling agendas. But on two fronts, there is a quality of make-believe to the legislation. For starters, given the extent of opposition to renewable-energy projects, California was going...
