    The beheading of American journalist James Foley, the massacre of thousands of Christians, Kurds, and Shiite Muslims, and ISIS’s vow that its flag will soon fly over the White House does not mean the United States is at war with them, says Deputy State Department spokesperson Marie Harf. “ISIS may think they are at war with us, but that doesn’t mean we are at war with them,” Harf insisted. “As you may have observed, President Obama sternly denounced Foley’s televised beheading. He has done his part to inspire others to take the actions needed to cope with the situation. There’s...

BERLIN taz | The threat of Dmitri Jarosch, the boss of the right sector, had worked. Either the government will meet in Kiev the demands of the right sector, according to Jarosch last week, or one will draw off the forces fighting in the Don's bass of the right sector and they allow to march directly to Kiev. Contently Jarosch called off after a little while threatened march to Kiev. The government has followed to his demands...

    Terrorists advancing a smothering worldwide Caliphate with the help of do-nothing, yakety-yak political leaders The British mainstream media, in another era called the scribes of the ‘Penny Dreadfuls’ continue to go to great lengths to romanticize brutal terrorists who slaughter and maim innocents in their demented mission for world takeover through Caliphate. First came “White Widow, 30-year-old Samantha Lewthwaite, who is believed to have fled Kenya to Somalia after the Nairobi shopping mall massacre in September of 2013. The British mainstream media created for the seriously depraved Lewthwaite, a folklore image of a woman “fleeing on a camel to an...

    Earlier this month, Senator John McCain indicated that it was time for the United States to consider selling lethal weapons to Vietnam after a 30-year embargo. The recent maritime standoff between Beijing and Hanoi over Chinese oil exploration off the central coast of Vietnam exposed Hanoi’s many strategic weaknesses. Providing Vietnam with coast guard and maritime systems as a first step - and eventually radar, fighter aircraft and spare parts for leftover American military equipment - would bolster Hanoi’s strategic capabilities vis-a-vis China and give substance to the "comprehensive partnership" announced last year between Hanoi and Washington. But more than...

    Americans were made acutely aware of the threat posed by Western jihadist fighters joining the ranks of ISIS in Syria and Iraq when a man with a London accent beheaded James Wright Foley as part of a taped ultimatum to President Barack Obama. Inexplicably, President Barack Obama chose not to even abstractly address the nature of that threat, even though he plans to personally chair a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on precisely this subject next month. A July intelligence estimate suggested that up to 3,000 ISIS militants were of European origin and 1,500 of those are young...

    How long before the terrorists flowing in to the United States unhampered across its southern border get to crow over beheadings conducted right on American soil? The “British accent” of the Islamic State beast who brutally beheaded American photojournalist James Wright Foley serves as the defining moment in the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism. That defining moment underlines in blood how Western leaders who allow the flow of terrorists across their borders have relinquished the safety of their own citizens for convenience, cowardice and political expediency. Western leaders like President Barack Hussein Obama and Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron do...

One protester asked pointedly "Did they tell the people supporting the cop downtown to keep moving?" referring to a Sunday evening gathering in support of Officer Darren Wilson. But the crowd, smaller than Sunday night, was staying on the sidewalk and obeying officers' orders to keep moving. Carmelita Wiliams came from Dellwood to join the protests. She said she plans to be out for as many nights as it takes. "If one person is left, I want to...

    Everyone is aware by now of another Trayvon Martin situation, this time in Ferguson, Missouri. An unarmed black teenager was shot and killed by a white police officer. The result has been disturbing on both ends. Blacks in this St. Louis suburb have rioted. They’re looting and destroying their own neighborhoods. The police response, using military equipment, has been equally as disturbing. Every American should be bothered by the unnecessary militarization of local police forces. Black anger is misplaced in this situation, just like it was in the Trayvon Martin situation. Over 90% of black people who are murdered are...

Bowe Bergdahl, who was freed earlier this year after spending nearly five years as a Taliban captive in Afghanistan, six of his former platoon mates are shopping proposals for a book and movie that would render their own harsh verdicts… “I’m not sure we can publish this book without the Right using it to their ends,”...

    President Obama announced two actions in Iraq. He declared that America is here to help and thus bombs away! Isis is fast taking over Iraq and in doing so has attacked Iraqi Christians, Kurds and anyone who opposes them. This is a crisis that has been ongoing for months, it’s hardly something that just suddenly came about. Why Obama is acting now as opposed to several months ago when reports of attacks on Christians were trickling out of Iraq is anyone’s guess. Ultimately any action in Iraq speaks to Obama’s failures in the country. He insisted that America leave Iraq...

    Obama’s determination to downsize the military — and its catastrophic consequences A bipartisan critique of the Obama administration’s 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) by the National Defense Panel is a devastating takedown of the administration’s determination to reduce America’s military to pre-WWII levels. “Since World War II, no matter which party has controlled the White House or Congress, America’s global military capability and commitment has been the strategic foundation undergirding our global leadership,” the report states. “Given that reality, the defense budget cuts mandated by the Budget Control Act (BCA) of 2011, coupled with the additional cuts and constraints on...

    Putin's Secret Message to ObamaI’m Andrew Klavan and this is the Revolting Truth. Ever since President Obama took office, he’s been making friendly overtures to the Russians, trying to “press the reset button” in relations between our two countries. In 2012, the president was even caught on an open mike promising he’d have more “flexibility” to cave in to Russian demands after he was re-elected. Russian President Vladimir Putin has responded warmly to Obama’s gestures by warmly cheating on our arms treaties, warmly supporting our enemies in Syria, warmly annexing Crimea, and warmly abetting the destruction of a Malaysian airliner...

    The Badge of Military Merit, which would eventually become the Purple Heart, was established by General George Washington on August 7, 1782 and awarded to three Revolutionary War soldiers. It was not awarded again until after World War I and, having not been formally abolished, is the oldest military award still given in the United States.

    I sure don't like the Russians much, but praise be to anyone who sheds the light of truth on the murky Obama regime... since nobody in our mainstream media nor government seems to give-a-hoot-in-hell when gay associates -some would say lovers-at Obama's former church promptly disappear once he announced his '08 presidential run, or that his wife seems like a bored, embittered beard suffering from low job (or any other) satisfaction... While it's difficult to tell where the guy gets his information, Rev JD Manning of 'Manning Report' fame has put a video out proclaiming that Putin/the Kremlin will expose Obama's secret, homosexual...
  • Israel Didn’t Expect This Miracle Just Seconds Before A Hamas Rocket Almost Killed Hundreds

    An Israeli commander claimed that hundreds of Israeli lives were saved recently when “the hand of God” stopped a Hamas rocket. The Israeli commander described the attack on a Hebrew-language website: A missile was fired from Gaza. Iron Dome precisely calculated [its trajectory]. We know where these missiles are going to land down to a radius of 200 meters. This particular missile was going to hit either the Azrieli Towers, the Kirya (Israel’s equivalent of the Pentagon) or [a central Tel Aviv railway station]. Hundreds could have died. We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This...

    If the various Muslim Militant Groups such as ISIS, Hamas, al Shira, al Quada, Taliban, the GITMO FIVE, etc, etc, etc. were to Militarily conquer the Nation of Israel, would Russia then be in control of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, including effective Naval and Air control of the Suez Canal? Russia would then have control of the most cost-effective of Saudi and Iranian Oil straight through to Crimea Ports to Russian oil pipelines running through Ukraine to Europe. The lack of Left Wing Media curiosity on this potential Russian power grab of a major portion of the World's Oil Market,...

    The American Thinker ^ | August 6, 2014 | Thomas Lifson
    On more than one occasion, international media reporters working in Gaza have stood before the cameras showing the devastation from an Israeli strike only to have a rocket unexpectedly fired nearby toward Israel as they speak. This tends to prove the Israeli case that Hamas is using Gazans as human shields, and puts the onus of violating the rules of war on Hamas. Some reporters, such Finnish TV’s Aishi Zidan, have become furious when their disclosures of Hamas firing rockets from amidst civilians are picked up and used to support Israel. Others however, seem to learn from their experience. Consider...

    On this date in 1945, the United States dropped the first atomic bomb used in combat on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, causing possibly as many as 80,000 deaths, with thousands more later from radiation and other illnesses. While many still debate the morality of the use of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, there is no doubt that, had the Japanese not surrendered following the dropping of the bombs, the Allied invasion of Japan, scheduled to begin on November 1, 1945, would have likely caused millions of casualties on both sides before Japan would have capitulated.

    “An army of sheep led by a lion would defeat an army of lions led by a sheep.” – Arab Proverb There is a lion in the Middle East known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS.) They are devouring the sheep. A strategically orchestrated mob of sexually repressed angry young men gladly pledging allegiance in the name of god, murder and rape is winning victory after victory. The local law enforcement are getting beheaded and the towns are being taken one after the other. Anything that doesn’t conform to their ideology of Islam is being destroyed. Non-Muslims...
